Alix and Pearce have created a great place to just relax, away from the tourist bustle. Their property is in a residential area, so its very quiet but just a street away from the beach. The rooms are cosy and well-kept and you get a nice selection for breakfast. We didn't rent a car but it's easy to get a... More

There are not many places left for a holiday where you can take your pet dog. However I found one!!!! I have just spent 1 week at Clifton Beach Retreat where Alix and Perce made sure we were comfortable. The rooms are well maintained, bed comfortable, kitchen well equipped. The beach is a very short walk away and is also... More

We stayed here for a few night whilst awaiting our new rental property in Cairns. Room was lovely and the couple who run the place were also friendly and accommodating. Beach is only a few minutes walk away which pleased our dog no end. Would like to have taken part in the yoga class or massage but was exhausted from... More

Nice spot only 1 street from the beach. The birds woke me up in the morning and I borrowed a bike from Perce and Alix and rode into Palm Cove for a coffee. Palm cove is only a 10 min ride along a beautiful boardwalk. Yeap I will definitely be back as the cold hits Melbourne.

We stayed here in April 2014 for several days. The room was very comfortable with a good bed, fridge for food/beers and a balcony looking straight out onto rainforest! We really enjoyed the sound of the animals and saw some wallabies jumping around. The beach is just a few minutes walk away and it's a great beach....it is several km... More

Our family loved our stay at the Clifton Beach Retreat. Feeling like home, this B & B has earned the word 'retreat'. It is cozy and well-situated if you want to get away from the urban scene. Within our first hours we saw a mother wallaby with a joey in her pouch. We could hear the Laughing Kookaburras from our... More

Very peaceful. Idyllic setting overlooking pool and garden. Host Alix very hospitable. Located near very beautiful tropical beach within walking distance. at times today we were the only people on the beach. Comfortable bed, good fly screens and fans. Good wifi . Recommended for couples or friends.

We have booked this place in last minute because we had to find a place to stay. We felt like everyting was not ready there and some items were missing. The host was great and friendly and also the location is OK. A good breakfast was provided in the room.

We enjoyed this B&B. Very comfortable bed, excellent shower and lovely pool and view of the wildlife. Breakfast was varied and tasty and this is very close the to beach, although not to the swimming nets (in stinger season). A few minor things - the only working locked door was the fly-screen one, the bathroom and toilet is not totally... More

We needed somewhere to stay north of Cairns in order to view the total solar eclipse and were very pleased indeed by our week-long stay. Alex and Perce were very hospitable and keen to help us with our plans. It was wonderful to watch the birds and wallabies in the scrub land from the balcony and to have a refreshing... More
