Reviewed 30 July 2014

Truly welcoming place where all the guests seem to be smitten by the hosts enthusiasm. Really nice to share the days experience over a couple of beers on the terrace or, as in our case, a BBQ. The place comes with amenities that allows you to fully enjoy the beach such as a SUP and a couple of kayaks. Malcolm and Anna are really relaxed and even had time to arrange bookings for the guests. On top of that, Yorkeys knob is a really great place with golf course and a nice harbour reastaurant - both in keeping with a relaxed Aussie style. The apartments are nice and big and have a fantastic view of the ocean. The rooms are quiet and you get to hear a lot of "jungle" sounds which makes the experience magical. Thanks for a great stay.

Our professional mountain bike team came to Cairns for a World Cup race and stayed at The Beach Place. It couldn't have been more perfect! Anna and Malcolm were excellent hosts and looked after us with the attitude that we were close friends. There were amazingly accommodating to 7 muddy men and 1 cook/care taker/massage therapist/"mom". They were ready for whatever the day brought, whether it was with a hose to wash off the mud, fresh cut coconuts with a straw to drink the water, or beer. Or often, all three. Their easy-going, helpfulness made a difficult week much easier.

The Beach Place has a prime location. As the name suggests, it is on the beach. But also, it's just in front of a netted-off, life-guarded swim area, which is perfect for a quick dip. The apartments are clean and have plenty of space. And their little cafe is perfect for a coffee/breakfast/ice cream stop.

Anna, Malcolm, and Taleigha really made us feel at home and welcome. So thanks again!

Anna and Malcolm made the stay awesome. Not only is it a great little hidden away gem on Yorkey's Knob, but the accomodation has paddle boards and kayak. Anna knows all the best places to visit and helped us plan our time up there. All in all, we loved it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left get a nice view out to the left.

My partner and I stayed with at The Beach Place in early December this year. We had an amazing time! Anna and Malcolm were so friendly and helpful when we needed advice on tours to book. They have extensive knowledge of the the area and really put in the time to help you figure out your best options. The apartment was pristine and had an incredible view I will never forget. If we ever come back to Cairns or know people going, we both whole-heartedly would suggest staying at The Beach House.

The Beach Place really was a home away from home. Malcolm, Anna and Taleigha are a fantastic family and extremely welcoming. We enjoyed a few nights having a beer and a good chat, and Anna booked all the tours for us.
The apartment was perfect, with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, combined living/kitchen/meals area and a balcony overlooking the water, and a lifeguard patrolled beach directly opposite with a swimming net.
Yorkeys Knob is a great location it is also easy to get too all the attractions that the area has to offer.
We will be back to stay again, and can recommend the Beach Place to anyone who wants a great relaxing holiday!!

Room Tip: Car Parking on site - so hire a car and most attractions at 10 mins away. Also, there is a local sup...

During my recent vacation to Cairns, my primary goal was to spend as much time as possible enjoying Stand Up Paddle boarding. Malcolm was our life saver!! He was one of the only individuals, within the entire Cairns area, who responded in a timely manner and was committed to making sure we had what we needed. He rented us a Paddle board, kayak, and gave us a great deal. We were so impressed with his customer service and loved his personality! We also had the opportunity to view one of his apartments for our next trip to Cairns. The rooms were very clean and had amazing views!! Thank you again Malcolm for your top-notch customer services and for making my dreams of SUPing in Cairns come true!

Our recent holiday at The Beach Place was one of the most relaxing and comfortable holidays
I have ever had. The location is five star, as is the accommodation, as are the hosts - who
couldn't have been more helpful. The "four of us" highly recommend The Beach Place and are
only sorry our stay couldn't have been longer.
