Galvin's Edge Hill Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 2 Edge Hill B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 April 2007

Galvin's Edge Hill Bed & Breakfast features an absolutely stunning setting. It's a two-bedroom self-contained ground floor apartment in a typical old Queensland house surrounded by lush tropical plants and flowers. Hosts Julie and Jesse Low and their three daughters live upstairs and can recommend and book all sorts of tours and trips from Cairns, with pick-ups from the house. The apartment has a large living area with kitchenette, and a private area of patio in the lovely garden with table and chairs for outdoor breakfasts which feature Julie's huge tropical fruit platter; try an evening take-out from one of the Edge Hill restaurants, a five minute walk away - we liked the Naked Nut for excellent food and wicked pavlova. The best feature of the garden is a freeform swimming pool, landscaped into the planting, and a welcome cool-off from Cairns' tropical climate. There is television, a phone, and a wealth of information on the area and the Great Barrier Reef. We had such a warm welcome and so much help from the family, and not only did the apartment meet every possible need, but the garden and pool were just stunning. We left very reluctantly !
