I enjoyed my stay at the Bellview. It's perfectly located opposite the sea, right amidst the main restaurant and bar area of Cairns. Staff were friendly, the room was clean and the whole experience hassle-free. Because the listing used the words 'my place' I'd expected that, like most Airbnbs, this listing was for a room in a private home - but be aware that you're actually booking a room in a budget hotel. This brings the advantages of a manned check-in desk, mini fridge in the room, coffee-making facilities, etc - but if you're looking for a more personalised experience this may be something to consider.
We stayed at the Bellview after flying into Cairns late and leaving early the next day to take a boat to the Reef. I'd highly recommend this space if you are coming in and out of the city and need a spacious clean space to rest. They are located on the Esplanade, so you have your pick of restaurant, markets, bars and parks. They were very helpful for us finding our boat the next day too.
It's a wonderful place! The location is right in the heart of the city, 5minutes walk to woolworth, 5minutes walk to the port, 3minutes walk to the sea, 2minutes walk to the night market! The room is clean and tidy, and the host is super friendly and helpful! The place is definitely the best choice to stay in Cairns!
