        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.

        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).

        Location is beyond belief, the house is literally on the water, best sunrise and sunset, great for families with older children, the steps are not friendly to toddlers or elderly guests. We were a family of 3 and had a whole suite to us. WiFi worked only sitting by the pool, there were no signals in our rooms, which allowed us to focus more on the beauty surrounding us and less on our devices.

        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.

        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.

        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!

        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 :)

        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.

        A room with a view”

        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.
