What a great place to stay! The accommodation was just beautiful and the location was great, with plenty of eating options and a supermarket etc within walking distance. The beautiful Botanic Gardens were also an easy walk away. Julie & Jesse were very hospitable and made us very welcome. The accommodation was immaculate, spacious and beautifully appointed, looking out to the lovely tropical garden and hills beyond. Everything we needed was supplied, including quality toiletries, beach towels, and even a cooler for our picnic! Julie was particularly helpful with her restaurant recommendations and touring suggestions. We could not have been happier and would definitely recommend Galvins.

Galvin's Edge Hill B&B is one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed in. The location was great and Julie & Jesse were absolutely wonderful as our hosts. The facilities were fantastic as was the garden area where we eat our breakfasts and also one night had a BBQ. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely appointed. Julie made booking for our group to the train/skyrail and the Great Barrier Reef which helped us organize our stay. I would strongly recommend Galvin's Edge Hill B&B.

There is not much I can say that hasn't already been said. We stayed three glorious days in mid May. This is with out a doubt the most amazing B&B. Jesse and Julie are amazing hosts. The two bedroom unit is very well appointed and with access to an outdoor grill and microwave, you really don't need to go out for dinner - unless you want to of course. The amazing array of fresh tropical fruit presented each morning was wonderful and a great introduction to fruits we don't typically see in our part of the world. The pool is wonderful and the beautifully landscaped tropical oasis that is the back yard was perfect for reading and relaxation. I wish we had more time to spend there and would definitely stay there again!

Dear Bev and Bob

Greetings from the tropics. It was a real pleasure having you stay with us. Perhaps our paths will cross again one day.

Fond regards

Julie & Jesse

Thank you for such a wonderful introduction to Cairns. We were pleasantly surprised with the spacious, quiet rooms and lovely tropical garden area. It was perfect for our family of three, with plenty of space to spread out and relax. The breakfast included local exotic fruits which we ate outside on the patio overlooking the pool and listening to the birdsongs. It is a short walk to the Botanical Garden and Tank Art Museum and there are plenty of restaurants down the street. They are equipped with everything you might need including beach towels and sunhats. Julie was more than helpful with directions, suggestions, access to laundry, etc. We wish we could have stayed longer and would heartily recommend Galvin's Edge Hill B&B.

In my opinion Galvin's Edge Hill Bed & Breakfast is one of the most beautiful B&B ever. I was there with my best friend from overseas and my idea was show them the beauty of the tropical place, so different from Europe.
Nice, tidy and beautiful inside and outside the house. The swimming pool surrounded by nature is an authentic wedge of paradise. My friends took more picture at home instead in Cairns!
Also the family is really nice and helpful, and Julie was simply amazing!
I'm happy to have found a place like this and for sure it will be my future base in QLD during the next trip Australia.
Thanks a lot Jesse and Julie!
