Convenient location close to the YK marina and the beach, unfortunately it's in the flight path of the Cairns airport with very early morning arrival flights particularly annoying.

A lovely stay.

Pros: The property was spacious and well maintained.
Well priced and a lovely location. A well furnished property with plenty of space, with the only down side being a single bathroom/toilet.

Fantastic, cute cottage.

Owner was in contact straight away after booking, and had the cottage ready early. Was spotless, really well presented. Quiet street, really comfortable place to stay. The bed was like a cloud! All round, a very positive experience. Will stay again next time I come home. THANKS!!

The unit was clean and very well equipped. The impression was that the place was very close to tropical rainforest. Would return again.
