Stay at Galvin edge was the best part of our Trip to Australia. We stayed at Cairns for a week.The place is very beautiful and extremely well managed. The hosts, Jesse and Julie, went out of their way to make us comfortable. The house is located in a very peaceful and enchanting place.

Stayed for 3 nights in mid-Nov, 2011, and it was just great. Our party of 3 was so comfortable in the 2 bedroom w/kitchen and living room. Felt like we were in the most exotic place. Step outside to the patio and in front of us was the pool with lush plantings all around. So relaxing after a day of...

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...

I stayed here for three nights, in September 2011, and found it a very relaxing, convenient place to stay. Since my flight from the States did not arrive until 11:20 PM, and I then had to pick up my luggage and also my rental car, I was worried about arriving for the first time after midnight. That was no problem;...

This is an apartment, lots of space. Your own swimming pool in a tropical garden. Friendly host, who offers to drive you into town when she has the chance (takes 10 minutes. Great place and at a price of $125 for stays of 5 days or more, it's a good deal.

We stayed here for a few nights in March / April, 2011. We enjoyed our stay here. The hosts, Julie and Jesse, were very congenial and very helpful. We enjoyed the pool, which is refreshing after a day's activities. We had very wholesome breakfasts - tropical fruits, cereals, yogurt and cheese. Even though the place has two bedrooms, one queen...

We were very happy with this accommodation which is definitely the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. It is much more than just a b and b. As well as a bedroom each, we had a comfortable living accommodation, a kitchenette and dining area, and a big shower room. This looked out onto a wooden deck, and...

We stayed (along with another couple) at Galvin's Edge for two nights. They have a lovely two-bedroom apartment with two baths, one of which has a garden shower. A wonderful continental breakfast with fresh fruit was provided each morning, and refreshments and snacks were also available. They gave us a lift to the boat for the Great Barrier Reef tour...

Galvins is a really special place to stay. We have been here a week and have wanted for nothing! We have a hire car, so the 10 minute drive to the centre of Cairns is no problem. The area is really peaceful and, although I worried a little about the noise of the airport, it's nothing but the occassional low...
