My son and I stayed at this sweet motel for nine days while visiting relatives. It was conventiently located close to the Yorkeys Knob beachfront - a 30 second stroll to the beach front and local cafe for a coffee. What was so refreshing about this Cairns accommodation was being located on the ground, surrounded by a beautiful tropical garden and pool, rather then being several floors up in an impersonal apartment building away from the stunning scenery. It was famly friendly as well as perfectly suited to couples. Neighbourly with the other visitors, without being intrusive. A great barbeque area close to the pool and the rooms all have cooking facilities and air conditioning. We stayed in a double bed/twin bed unit which was ideally suited for two or four person. But the biggest mention must be about the host, Peter, who is extremely helpful and available for any questions you may have: from hiring a car, booking the best and most economic Great Barrier Reef trip to booking accommodation in other parts of Queensland. He's honest and looking to obtain the best deal for his customers. He has loads of return business which says something about the type of place it is. Yorkeys Knob is the third closest northern beach from Cairns so it's still very conventient to take the bus into Cairns or if you are heading north or up to the tablelands it's also well located. I cannot recommend this place enough. This was my second time to Cairns and I would certainly book it in the future when I return for another holiday. It's very reasonably priced and what you get for your buck is a lot more than other places around this tourist focused area.
