What a gem of a find!!! My husband and I stayed last night on our way to Cairns and only wished we could have stayed longer. The Manager went out of her way for us! Great hospitality! The room was very clean and bed very comfortable. We walked down to both beaches and had a drink while watching the sunset. We loved every moment and can’t wait to return. Thank you.
