Hosts Julie and Jesse really tried their best to help make our stay as nice as possible, with a sumptuous breakfast and lots of friendly advise before and during... More

Our party of 4 recently returned from a trip to Australia which included 3 nights at this absolutely wonderful B&B. Galvin's Edge offers a convenient location, large bedrooms (with AC) and common area, wonderful fresh fruit platters each morning along with all the breakfast essentials and a fabulous outdoor patio and beautifully landscaped pool that took our breath away.

If you're looking for a top quality B&B in Cairns, look no further. Not only is the accommodation spotlessly clean, well furnished and comfortable, but the whole is so much more than the parts. In particular it's the very special blend of warm welcome from Julie and Jesse, the attention to detail and the relaxed atmosphere that makes Galvin's Edge... More

I stayed here last year as well and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else. Beautiful, clean, very attractive and welcoming accommodation and hosts. Julie and Jesse make you feel like a returning friend rather than guest and the continental breakfasts are fresh and tasty. The 'private' pool is an added bonus. Overall, I had a lovely stay and would definitely stay... More

Our family of three really enjoyed our several days staying at this wonderful B&B in Galvin's Edge Hill, a suburb of Cairns.

The continental breakfasts of fresh fruit, toast and yoghurt got our days... More
