We had 3 nights at Galvin's at the end of a 3 week holiday covering the Queensland coast and can only endorse what others have said before. This is a beautiful apartment in a lovely house in a peaceful, leafy suburb of Cairns. Good local facilities, close to the airport and an easy drive into town or the north Cairns beaches. The garden is very relaxing with a stunning pool, tropical plants and trees, and plenty of birdlife. The breakfast fruit platter was almost too good to be true. There are enough books to fill a library - we never had time to turn the TV on ! Julie is a perfect host, friendly and helpful yet allowing guests to have their own privacy. If we come back to Cairns we will not need to look elsewhere for top quality accommodation. Highly recommended.
