“Paradise!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We LOVED our stay at the Beach Place! Right across the street from the beautiful Yorkeys Knob beach. The apartments are perfect! We had a two bedroom, two bath. The large, comfortable balcony looks over the ocean. The side windows look at a park with palm trees. The kookaburras came to our balcony rail every day. Beds are so comfortable, everything is very, very clean. We were on the second floor, no elevator. Not a problem for our family - parents and 2 college kids.
The large kitchen has everything we needed.
The beach is lovely anytime of day, we spent a lot of time walking, watching the dolphins, collecting sand dollars. There is a lot to do in the Cairns area. The hosts, Malcolm and Anna are so friendly and very helpful and their daughter is an excellent hostess also! They gave us great suggestions for our stay, lent us maps etc.We did a snorkeling trip on the great barrier reef, spent the day in Kuranda (loved it!), drove up to Port Douglas - beautiful! We felt so at home here and can't wait to go back. We want to try paddle boarding with Malcolm when we come back - he would lend us a board but we didn't have time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The Beach Place is a great place to escape the touristy bits of the beaches North of Cairns. You can see the Yorkeys Knob beach with swimming enclosure from the balcony, and it's a 2 minute walk across the road. The road didn't get busy/noisy on the weekend. The apartment has everything you need and Malcolm's got a shop full of experience, with Anna being lovely to talk to and reliable when making the booking.
