We just loved this beach view apartment. We would awake each morning to the sounds of Cockatiels, the Coral Sea, and the magpies. We breakfasted on the beach view balcony in our pajamas. Malcolm and Anna, our hosts, prepared a BBQ for the guests, and when I couldn't come down, they made a plate for me and sent it up with my daughter. Another evening they made a bonfire and had wine. Every place we wanted to visit, they made the reservations for us and made sure we got there. The place was clean and bright, and they had Wifi as well.
WE couldn't have asked for a better place. It's family friendly, quiet, off the beaten track, yet close enough to be at the more populated places in fewer than 20 minutes. We snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, took a sky-rail into the Tjapakai rainforest, shopped for opals, saw some night life, had high tea in Cairns, visited a fabulous zoo, got closer to crocodiles than I'd ever want to again, and really, had the best vacation of our lives. FABULOUS!!!

Had a great time staying at "The Beach Place" for almost a week in June. There weather didn't cooperate but that just meant we had time to relax and enjoy the view of the ocean from the living room. Malcolm, Anna and Tahlia made us most welcome and my husband enjoyed his time down at the cafe chatting with "the boys"! The apartment was very comfortable and quickly felt like a home away from home, if we're ever back in FNQ we'll be sure to stay here again!
We were treated like family the moment we met Malcolm , Anna and Thalia . Wow an amazing stay at this lovely apartment in Yorkey's knob. Our warm hosts went above and beyond to make our first week in Australia perfection. They added many personal touches to our stay such as offering to take me to get groceries when we first arrived , arranging top notch trips, making us dinner when we arrived after a long day on the water, driving us to a few different spots and being available for any question we had. I am sure we will not meet such attentive hosts on the rest of our journey. The apartment is in a great location. It is right across from the beach and bus stop to town . You can walk to a local shopping place too. If don't want to leave at all the shop beneath the apartment has everything you need. On Sunday nights they have entertainment at the shop. The place becomes filled with locals . Very friendly and warm people . My daughter even got up to join in on singing Christmas carols .We walked to the marina as well for a sunset dinner . My son had a ball taking pictures of all the wild life in the area . Our tours arranged by Anna were great. Billy tea safari , down under reef and the sky rail to Kuranda . Each one unique and no complaints at all. We miss you all already. The kids had fun with Thalia ( she loves to help too and has a zest for life) . I. swear the best meals we had were Anna's.
