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 hosts, Julie and Jesse, made us most welcome by assisting us with tour bookings and travel advice--even transportation! The space was very clean and spacious. The continental breakfasts of fresh fruit, toast and yoghurt got our days... More

Everything we needed was available + all the little extra's that turn good accomodation into perfect accomodation. Next to that, Jesse & Julie were always available when we needed them... More

We have just had an amazing week at Galvin's. We were so warmly welcomed and cared for throughout our stay. The ap artment is comfortable, clean and well appointed, and its situation in a quiet residential area helped us to feel both secure and relaxed.

Absolutely LOVED this beautiful place. Nicest B&B I've stayed in. A wonderful roomy character house-with the lovely older features with gorgeous furnishings. Am a keen gardener so loved the fantastic greenery around the place. Spotlessly clean & everything you could need for a very relaxing stay. Especially loved being able to do some washing-often a pain on holidays. Friendly hosts,... More
