Wow! Jan and John's villa was absolutely stunning and took my breath away. A friend and I stayed in an upstairs villa facing the water, and I was truly impressed by the space of the villa. With two of us, it felt as if we were in completely different areas and had our own spaces. Every amenity I could think of was provided and 2 sets of keys were given, which was great for both of us to have our own set. Although I had to spend a night killing bugs (because Cairns is humid and it was spring), you can keep the sliding glass doors closed and never have to worry about it again. Bugs are something you can never control, however. Air-conditioning worked great and was a very comfortable temperature. It was hot and humid which made the villa a great place to come home to.
In terms of location, you are looking at about 20-25 minutes walking in order to get to the heart of the restaurants and CBD. If you are looking at having a longer stay, it might be wise to get taxis or rent a car.
Overall, there is nothing that I could think of that would have made the experience any better. I would go back in a heartbeat, and I appreciate all Jan and John do to keep these spaces clean and inviting. Thank you both for an amazing stay I will never forget! :)
