Wonderful reception by Julie on the day of our arrival who prepared everything for an awesome stay at their B&B which is located at the lower level of their house. 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. The availability of a swimming pool in the back garden is an added bonus as... More

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this wonderful b and b. It is well appointed in a beautiful suburb on the edge of Cairns, and during this time we had everything we needed to make us feel comfortable 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

We are four travelers who arrived at different times and Julie was paying attention to hear our arrivals and welcome us to this beautiful rain forest hillside B&B just 10 minutes drive from the port to the Great Barrier Reef. The tasteful bedrooms, ample living room area and fully stocked kitchen reminded me of an upscale beach out nestled in... More

Galvin's Edge B&B is fantastic! From the moment we arrived, Julie took care of our every need. When she heard my wife was gluten free, she adjusted breakfast foods to suit. When we had a patch of rough weather, she supplied rain jackets and an umbrella. She drove us to the airport to pick up a rental car, which was... More
