We loved our stay at Trisha's granny flat. She made us feel welcomed right away (including our dog Marley). The flat itself is clean and tidy with a cozy bed. The neighborhoud is really nice and quiet.

Thanx trisha for letting us stay at your comfy , lovely accomadation & assisting us in our time of need with our vechicle problems, most appreciated. The surroundings are beautiful & everything we needed was close. Being able to walk to the magnificent botanical gardens was a bonus. The space in the flat is great as is the surrounding garden. Thanx again for making us so welcome. Wendy & john
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Trisha's studio flat. The studio is comfortable, roomy, private - everything we had hoped for. Trisha is a lovely host, warm and friendly, providing local advice and making sure you are comfortable. When it was raining she quickly lent us umbrellas. Edge Hill is very nice, with quite a few options for eating - Ozmosis cafe was great both times we ate there. Easy to walk to Botanic gardens and we did both the red and blue arrow walks - we'll worth it. We also used the bikes to take the easy ride into Cairns city, mostly along the boardwalk.
Thanks Trisha for everything, Peter & Clare
This granny flat contained everything we needed. Such a lovely private place to stay. So close to everything.
Trisha was absolutely awesome and even offered to give me a lift to the airport when she was feeling sick.
The description is spot on.
I really do not think you will find a better location or a better host.
Thanks so much Trisha and Teddy.

To date I have really enjoyed hosting such a diverse group of lovely guests - from Canada, USA, Germany, France, England...the list goes on. And such diverse ages and professions!
I like meeting new people, sharing experiences and hearing where you have been and what you've seen. We are all travelers on the planet; we have a lot we can share.
I look forward to meeting you, my Airbnb "ships in the night".
