Paul and Susan are great hosts and were very friendly booking a couple of tours for us
I would say that the villa we had was a little disappointing in terms of size of the pool
The one advertised on the website looks a lot bigger and there was nowhere to sit and relax by the pool in the sun unless you wanted to be splashed by who ever was in the pool
The garden is literally the pool and the narrow walkway around
The two sun beds literally squeezed into the walkway round the pool
The villas itself was very clean and had all the facilities you would need - 3 toilets was a bonus
And 2 bathrooms
Maybe a foot rest for the two armchairs would have been good
Th laundry facilities were good - maybe a slightly larger clothes dryer would have been helpful
Location wise - despite being close to captain cook highway it was peaceful
Not being on the main front was not an issue
- it is a pleasant 10 minute walk at the most to the front where there was a good selection of restaurants

... but we did get a tiny bit of sun too, crazy how quickly it can go from bright and sunny to the heavens opening from above. The treks were good to have a bit of exercise as well, both about 9km long, but I realised how unfit I now am! After the trip it was back to Cairns for two more nights. Pretty knackered, we stayed in as we were visiting the Great Barrier Reef the next day! We did snorkelling at two locations, the first in ...
... and made us bob up and down so we just sat there and float! We went in to sunbathe but it was such a hot day we ended up just going back in the sea to cool off. Our last stop for the day was Palm Cove, where we had just enough time for a walk and an ice cream, before driving back to Cairns and dropping the car off. Naomi and I had tiramisu and cookies and cream and it was the best ice cream I've ever had. I believe it was called 'Numi', and all of the ice creams are home made. ...
