The ap artment is comfortable, clean and well appointed, and its situation in a quiet residential area helped us to feel both secure and relaxed. The availability of a swimming pool in the back garden is an added bonus as...

Absolutely LOVED this beautiful place. Nicest B&B I've stayed in. A wonderful roomy character house-with the lovely older features with gorgeous furnishings. Am a keen gardener so loved the fantastic greenery around the place. Spotlessly clean & everything you could need for a very relaxing stay. Especially loved being able to do some washing-often a pain on holidays. Friendly hosts,...

We are four travelers who arrived at different times and Julie was paying attention to hear our arrivals and welcome us to this beautiful rain forest hillside B&B just 10 minutes drive from the port to the Great Barrier Reef. The tasteful bedrooms, ample living room area and fully stocked kitchen reminded me of an upscale beach out nestled in...

Galvin's Edge B&B is fantastic! From the moment we arrived, Julie took care of our every need. When she heard my wife was gluten free, she adjusted breakfast foods to suit. When we had a patch of rough weather, she supplied rain jackets and an umbrella. She drove us to the airport to pick up a rental car, which was...
