Bonita Vida is located in the heart of Palm Cove, only a 5-minute walk to the beach and main esplanade via a tropical boardwalk ALL of Palm Coves restaurants and shops are on the Esplanade . Our pavilion-style house embraces a tropical lifestyle and oozes holiday vibes. It's completely private, yet close to the action.

Bonita Vida – Our guest’s favourite bits:

- “It was like a 5-star resort without the crowds and loud children except for ours”.

Lindsay - Brunswick VIC

- “The property is well designed, fully equipped and there is nothing you have to worry about”.

Philippe - Switzerland

- “Loved having the plunge pool to ourselves to take a dip whenever we felt like it, and the BBQ area

is awesome.

There are so many great restaurants in Palm Cove, and the main strip along the beach is just a 5 min walk from Bonita Vida”.

Nikki – Perth, WA

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Holiday Home My friends and I (6 adults) stayed here for 3 nights to attend a friends wedding. It was heavenly. Even though it rained most of the time (that's the risk of FNQ) the beautiful tropical gardens made it feel so relaxing. Jacquie was more than helpful and I would recommend this lovely house to anyone planning a holiday to Palm Cove. Easy walk in to town, but still very quite. Thanks for the stay Jacquie!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent This was a fabulous stay for a family of 2 x sets of grandparents and a young family with a baby. The accomm was perfect with the indoor/outdoor living space that suited our needs. It is a very short walk to the beach and shopping/restaurants of Palm Cove. The owner greeted us warmly and informed us of the area and house, she also left food and drinks, which were much appreciated. Would return to this location if in Cairns again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Palm Cove perfection This place was an absolute gem. Immaculately clean, modern and perfect location being so close to all the action in Palm Cove. Add to that generous provisions and extremely gracious hosts who clearly care about their guests. We couldn't have asked for anything more and loved every minute of our stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing house Lovely place to enjoy our Christmas family reunion , the house was extremely well equipped to the highest standard and it was obvious that a great deal of care had been taken to ensure we had everything we could possibly need. The short stroll to the beach and the esplanade made this a perfect base for our Queensland holiday , thanks so much !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxuriously Welcoming Our stay at Bonita Vida could not have been surpassed. Everything listed was not only there, it was the highest spec and quality available. Completely seamless indoor to outdoor living in a luxuriously private and quiet setting only minutes from all the activities and buzz Queensland has to offer when we wanted it. I would have no hesitation to return.
