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

We had intended to go and sit by the pool or lagoon, but it was already half past four, so we headed back where Becky ...

Having a lovely cup of tea while waiting for the coach pick up. Alison very happy as tea is loose leaves with a tea strainer and a milk jug each, her idea of heaven!!
Back to the apartment for some relaxing at the pool and hot tub, we have however found out ...
Today we spent most of our day relaxing and laying low. It was another scorcher today with temps in the 100s until the afternoon thunderstorm rolled in. We spent the morning watching the football games and I'm so glad we did. That Seattle game was outstanding. Then we bailed around the 3rd quarter of the NE game to go eat some lunch and figure out our plan of attack for tomorrow. After lunch we found ...
After a busy day yesterday we decided to have an easy day in the centre of Cairns. We went to the casino which has a roof top zoo (it's owned by Louis Vuitton!) where we had cuddles with Micro the 2 year old koala. We wondered round the zoo which housed lots of different birds and reptiles. We managed to catch the reptile show where we got to pet a lizard, baby crocodile and a snake. After the zoo we went ...
