“Quiet, convenient and very clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Lovely spot to stay....very clean and well presented with all facilities within the cottage. Only a 1 minute walk to the beach which is long and lovely. Everything you could need as far as kitchen utensils, pot and pans etc.
Close to shops, marina, restaurants.

“Nice place with air conditioning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Driftaway Villas is located in Yorkeys Knob about a 20 minutes drive north of Cairns on a quiet street only a block from the beach. However, you can't swim in the water due to jelly fish and crocodiles. There is a large netted pool in the water that was okay for children to play. The Villa has A/C in the lounge room but only in 1 bedroom. The other two bedrooms were uncomfortable due to the heat. The oven is tricky to light but worked fine. Plenty of room for our family of 6: 4 adults and 2 small children.

My husband, our two young kids and my Mum and Step-dad stayed here last week. I wish we were still there! With three bedrooms there was heaps of room and I even had an afternoon siesta! Everything you need is there. A short stroll to the beach where there are lifeguards on patrol. Owners were lovely to deal with too, making staying in Driftaway Villas a breeze.
