Beautiful gardens, pool and BBQ are available for your use. Located in a very quiet neighbourhood and conveniently located a short taxi drive from the airport.

My husband and I used Cairns as our gateway for a snorkeling trip on the Great Barrier Reef. Galvin's Edge was a wonderful B&B ... super spacious (you have the entire "apartment" to yourself), clean, and nicely appointed. (And I must mention the amazing backyard and pool area!) Hosts Jesse and Julie were friendly and accomodating - eager to help...

One of the best b&b I've ever seen. Julie & Jesse (b&b hosts) are absolutely lovely. The place is very beautiful and clean and you can have your breakfast in front of one of the most beautiful swimming pool in the world ! But attention, don't go out without anti mosquito spray ! Edge Hill is about 5-10 minutes drive...

We stayed 4 nights enjoyed the pool, spacious 2 bed apartment, delicious breakfasts, friendly and helpful hosts Julie & Jesse. The surrounds are relaxing minutes to botanical gardens and small shopping area with restaurants/deli/bottle shop/ATM etc. Recommend to couples and families and very reasonable rates.

We had a wonderful stay in Cairns! The B&B was on a quiet street with parking in front. The bedrooms had individual air conditioners. Breakfast included a fresh fruit platter daily, which was wonderful. The swimming pool was refreshing. The laundry was just outside the apartment. Everything exceeded expectations!
