We found A Villa Gail after searching for a place that would offer 1-night accommodations north of Cairns. We only needed a place to sleep for the night because we flew into Cairns around 8:30 pm and were heading to Cape Trib first thing the next morning. But do we ever wish we had longer to stay here with Gail! She had no problem waiting for us to arrive so late, even waited outside to flag us down because she could tell we were lost :). She ordered us a pizza and we chatted for a while, even though she was probably ready for bed by the time we arrived.
She had our breakfast ready in the in-room fridge so we could wake up and eat whenever we wanted to, and she encouraged us to wake up for the sunrise. WOW! We're so glad we did, because despite not sleeping very long, the view from the room and the balcony are AMAZING! This isn't a typical "stick your head out the window and look to your left" ocean view, the room has a panoramic ocean view right outside your window! The room had several windows to truly enjoy the view. The tropical fruit breakfast was VERY good, made better by the view as you eat! We discovered that you even have an ocean view from the shower!
Yorkeys Knob is a very nice area, we didn't have much time to explore all of it, but spent some time on the beach and watched dolphins swim in the cove. This was the perfect place to spend our anniversary, it's so relaxing! If we ever make it back, we'll definitely stay here again! THANKS GAIL!
