My stay here was excellent. Gary went out of his way to be sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I always stay here when I come to Cairns.

Gary attended to our every need. Always available and advice on area events and places to eat. Unique experience and really friendly and like a guest at home. Easy to connect with other guests out on the deck in the evenings. Not a typical hotel, sunsets and sunrise great. Not a new boat, but the experience was purely special.🤗 Would go back and recommend it.😁
