We found Galvin's Edge on AirBnB, and though the Air site was frustrating, staying at Galvin's Edge was definitely NOT! Julie and Jesse have a bit of paradise tucked away just on the outskirts of Cairns, and our two night stay with my partner, my daughter, and her husband, was just what we needed. Less than 10 minutes from the...

Gracious hosts Julie and Jesse made our stay at Galvins just like a stay at home. Everything that we could have asked for in a holiday home was available. I cannot forget my first interaction with Julie when I requested for a booking and she refused an advance deposit but confirmed that the booking was reserved for us. A warm...

Easy to find, easy to set-up, and so very easy to enjoy! The location was great, close to the round about at Edge Hill, where there was a bus stop and numerous fun restaurants. My husband, daughter and I stayed for 5 nights and wished it could have been longer.

How lucky was I to find and stay at Galvin's B&B for 7 nights while doing a course, in a neighboring Cairns suburb. A beautiful home in the traditional Queenslander style, with the separate very clean and comfortable 2 bedroom B&B accommodation located downstairs, complete with own bathroom/toilet and fully furnished /equipped kitchen/lounge area,(great collection of books too), which opens...

My wife and I were on a RTW trip and stayed in a variety of hotels and B&B's and our criteria for choosing a B&B was that it avoided commercial hustle and bustle, was of good quality and had a more personal feel about it. Galvin's B&B fulfilled all of these criteria. The first impression you have is how well...

The Galvin's B&B is an excellent place for rest and relaxation after a long trip and exhausting tours! I chose this place for its reasonable price and proximity to the City center. With its classic Queensland architecture, it has a homey feel with its rooms opening to a nice veranda and to a cozy living room facing the pool. The...
