We had a fabulous stay with Marlies and Bruno! If you're exploring Cairns and want a great place to call home, this is it! Amazing service-- great breakfast. Marlies and Bruno can direct you wherever you need to go, greet you with a glass of wine or beer, or just a nice chat. We really enjoyed our couple of days... More
