As with other reviews, Brian and Qi Qi were fantastic hosts and very very helpful. I don't think I've ever had such a detailed welcome at any hotel in my life! The room we stayed in was absolutely huge with full self catering facilities. The washer and dryer were a massive bonus, particularly at the end of a three week...

In fact we had Dinner with them every night of our stay. My wife has an...

As first time visitors to Cairns, hubby and I decided to run away for a couple of days and were lucky enough to book with Golden Sands. Brian and Qi were fantastic hosts, very welcoming, friendly and informative about what to see in the local area. Our apartment was spacious and most importantly very clean. The room was well fitted...

Brian and Qi are lovely, but our apartment was not great. Our 2 bedroom apartment received very little sun and had a view of the empty section next door, The lock on the ranch slider was broken (hanging off), as was the arm on the sofa. I was not expecting to have to take out my own rubbish and thought...
