We arrived in Cairns on January 20, but were unable to stay at the Getaway our first night, as the office had already closed for the day. The next morning, we went to the office and Kevin showed us an available suite -- even though it was only 8:30 am, he said we could check in already! Three of us stayed in the two-bedroom suite for three nights, and it was more than enough room. It had a queen bed in one bedroom and two single beds in the other bedroom. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and we also had use of the barbecue beside the swimming pool. We took advantage of that! The suite also included a dining table and a large sitting area with a television. Even though it was raining quite a bit during our stay, we enjoyed sitting out on the balcony, watching the interesting goings on in Cairns. An added bonus was the washer and dryer, right in the suite! Both Linda and Kevin were very helpful, giving us suggestions of things to do and places to see during our stay. It is about a ten minute walk from the beach/night market. There isn't a lift, so we had to carry our luggage up/down the stairs, but that was a small price to pay for what we got. I would readily recommend this place as one that would be a great place to stay! You won't be disappointed!
