It is the most beautiful place to stay in- the view are so incredible! Really clean and organised r”
The host was just amazing! Gayle provides a delicious breakfast every morning with fresh fruit! She respects your privacy but is there if you need anything. The villa outlooks all of Cairns and it is set on top of the hill. It’s really quiet and very peaceful. I will come back again x thank you Gayle!

Fantastic Views”
Located on a cliff top at the highest point in Yorkeys Knob, this B & B offers exquisite views, clean & comfortable accommodation. The only negative is that you need a car to climb up a steep, winding hill on a narrow road.

Acceptable”
A Villa Gail is being run by an old lady who is really talkative and suggestive. My package included breakfast which was a tray of rotten fruits not even on a regular scheduled time; basically whenever she was keen to. The room was relatively clean with an en-suite toilet and a view towards the ocean. It's definitely not 4 star hotel; perhaps generously a 2 star residence. No thongs was provided and no shampoo or tooth paste were available. You'd better to watch your privacy as she jumps off the door whenever you are about to depart from or arrive to the villa. In oppose to what's suggest in the photos, the villa does not have a swimming pool and no WiFi will be provided. Also there won't be any access to facilities like Microwave or laundry, etc. The booking fee is not refundable, therefore if you change your mind, you may lose your money. I'd say for the price she's charging, you could easily find much better place with a professional manner towards hospitality.

Amazing Views! ”
We were looking for a last minute beach get-away and stumbled upon this gem. Our wonderful host, Gail shared her local knowledge, making heading out for a drink, cruising the reef, and getting around town super easy and enjoyable. We stayed in the two bedroom apartment (there were lots of stairs as it was on top of the cliff). This provided breathtaking ocean views from the spacious, breezy living area, and from both bedrooms. We would definitely recommend this place to everyone. We will be back!

Unbelivable Place and Host”
The best part of this Australia trip is staying at A Villa Gail. First, the sea view of the house is just astonishing and beyond our expectations. Second, the house has a lot huge platforms for rest and the breakfast is amazing. Third,Gail is so nice and so helpful that she did a lot to faciliate our stay. The new year eve of 2017 we spent together and the dinner will be always my sweet memory for ever. I will be visit again definitely.

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 :)

Great Accomodation Experience”
Fantastic B&B, located high up on a hillside, that does not fail to offer breathtaking views of the ocean and beach. Quiet location, relaxed atmosphere, clean and tidy. Gail (host) is bubbly, warm and friendly. Nothing is too much trouble. I have stayed here before, and will continue to make it part of my experience during my frequent trips to Cairns.

In a strong need of total renovation”
Nice location with unparalleled view on the sea. Gail, the owner, is a lovely person and very helpful in recommending where to go and what to see. Excellent was her breakfast based on a rich basket of tropical fruit and home made fruit jam. Said that, regretfully, I must point out that the villa needs an immediate renovation project, starting from the bath room and the windows. I understand, it will be expensive, but without that in no way I will return to that place.

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.

Will be a repeat customer”
location, view and comfort
The weather has been lousy but the accommodation has been amazing. The decor is lovely and not sterile like a motel. Breakfast was great and the view amazing. Courtesy bus took us to Yorkeys Knob Yacht Club for dinner every night. Only side note of something I didn't think of is BYO shower stuff ie soap, shampoo - luckily shopping is only a skip away to stock up. Wish we could stay longer.
