    If you're after stunning ocean views in peaceful surroundings, Gail's place can't be beat. Gail is a wonderful, amicable host who makes you feel very welcome. The two bedroom flat with absolute ocean frontage is highly recommended. The views from the property are stunning, taking in Cairns CBD and the mountains near Yarrabah. The property is situated about 10-15 minutes drive north of Cairns Airport in the suburb of Yorkeys Knob. You are well off the tourist trail here and will enjoy peaceful evenings and mornings. A hire car is recommended but the property could be reached by public buses (and a brisk walk up the steep hill).

    Marvelous hospitality. Gail made me feel completely at home and went above and beyond. In peak seasons, the Cairns taxi are expensive and its about A$50 for a trip into Cairns from Yorkeys Knob. Gail generously managed her administration trips into town to coincide with my schedule which was greatly appreciated. Lovely service, home and spectacular view over the Coral Sea every morning. Thanks for the great time Gail.

    magnificent views over the Coral Sea and towards Cairns; Gail is a lovely and very helpful person; location very close to Yorkeys Knob beach

    We stayed in the apartment at A Villa Gail which gave lots of room for the 4 of us. Gail is delightful she even provided us with a Christmas tree. The pool is very nice. The amazing views across the Coral Sea are fabulous, ever changing whether its blue skies or the storms coming in. Gail has clearly updated many aspects eg new furniture etc however the accommodation does have a bit of an air of needing a bit of upkeep such as the cooker in the kitchen.

    Wonderful place with the best owner you can imagine”

    A Villa Gail is a wonderful place. The view is unbelievable (get up early and you will have the best sunrise) and the breakfast is very good (fresh fruits). Gail is the owner of the place and such a lovely woman that we actually didn't want to leave anymore. We could have chatted with her forever :)
