I had a lovely stay here, but too brief. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating... I need to mail something there and they said that was fine, I needed a ride to the airport and they gave me a ride for a price cheaper than a taxi, I have food allergies and they altered my breakfast a bit... I...

Great bed&breakfast, nice, clean rooms and great view over the city (I had one of the rooms in the upper building, so the view from my balcony was lovely). The breakfast was really delicious with everything you can wish for - including fresh fruit, cheese and cereals (and as much coffee as you like). The view from the terrace where...

Very nice Bed and Breakfast. Bruno and Marlies are very friendly and at the breakfast table nothing was missing. Delicious special fruit, yoghurt, cereals, nice bread even croissant, etc. The view from the breakfast table was terrific (see photo). The travel tips were very useful (Botanic Garden, Rusty´s fruitmarket in Cairns) and the Milaa Milaa Falls (the waterfall route we...

Excellent accommodations, great view especially while eating breakfast on the deck. Marlies and Bruno are excellent hosts and very knowledgeable about the area. It is a good walk from town so Marlie dropped us off at the bus. Great impression of Cairns and the people that live there!

Wonderful location, it was handy to everything. The drive is a bit of a surprise being very steep but the parking is very well organised so it isn't a problem and of course you wouldn't have the wonderful view without it. Received a very warm welcome upon arrival, like arriving at a friend's, with a drink & a chat on...
