About this listing

Welcome to your completely private, spacious, modern and spotlessly clean garden studio in prestigious Edge Hill.
Enjoy the large swimming pool, free Wi-Fi, bicycles, Apple TV and Netflix!
There are nearby cafes, take-away places and restaurants. It is walking distance to the Botanic Gardens, shops and major walking trails. There are regular buses into town, or take an Uber from the airport, or into town for about $12.

The space

This large, non-smoking garden studio is completely private. You have a separate entrance and your own patio space. It is close to the airport and within easy access north to Port Douglas and The Daintree. There is off-street parking.

The studio is large with a living space, kitchenette, dining area, comfortable lounge and Queen-sized bed. There is a big separate bathroom, plus a single fold-out bed suitable for a child in a large walk-in space off the main room.

The kitchenette comes with microwave, fridge, electric fry pan, rice cooker, toaster and kettle, as well as cooking utensils, crockery, glasses and cutlery. There is no stove.

You will sleep in a comfy Queen-sized bed with side tables and bedside lamps, with clean sheets, duvet covers (and duvets in the colder months), plus towels.

It's an easy 10 minute bicycle ride to the START of The Esplanade that has a bicycle track all the way into town. There are bicycles for your use, including locks and helmets.

There is a large salt water pool you can enjoy any time until 10pm.

There is an iPod docking station, digital TV, DVD player and a selection of DVDs, plus HDMI cable for watching your own stuff from your laptop.

This meticulously clean apartment is a lovely private space, suitable for one or two people, or even three, who want peace and quiet in a tranquil setting during their stay in Cairns.

If you want to party, this is not the space for you. It is a quiet, safe neighbourhood, 5 kms from the centre of town.

Guest access

You will have use of the household laundry without having to come into the house. Washing is $3 a load for use of the washing machine, and there is an iron.
You can also use the laundry sink for washing up big plates and the electric frypan.
You can come and go as you please, as the studio has its own access.

Interaction with guests

It is lovely being able to chat with my guests, but I also respect it is your holiday, and you may just want to enjoy some peace.
However, I can help you get the best-suited Reef trip and the best Rainforest tour, because my neighbour manages The Cairns Tourist Information Centre (CTIC) on the corner of Aplin St and The Esplanade, and she is a terrific help! Look them up and tell the girls I sent you :) There are a great many tour operators all trying to take your money, so it's nice to have someone you can trust.

Other things to note

There is a folder - please read it as it's full of useful information to help you enjoy your stay, like the Wi-fi password and the best places for take-away or dining in.

We had such a lovely time at Trishas garden studio. Very clean, comfy and walking/biking distance to centre of Cairns. The pool was definitely a plus x

This was a perfect place for our stay in Cairns, I recommend and would definitely stay there again. Large bedroom with lots of space, very comfortable bed, good shower, kitchen facilities so we could have our breakfast inside, we even had a closet for ourselves! With the privacy of a separated room from the rest of the house . Residential neighborhood, lovely for a walk, next to the botanic garden, and with the great advantage to have bikes for our disposal which makes it easier to go anywhere in the city. Trisha was a a very kind host, and all we can do is thank her for so many great tips and for helping making our stay even better.

Trish and Teddy are great hosts. The accommodation is private, surrounded by tropical gardens and a pool. Inside it is clean and inviting with all the mod cons including air con, fans, a huge shower and baggage/ hanging area. I would suggest a hire car as if you want to go to the Cbd, and other places of interest. There is a bus stop on the main road. Trish has a folder full of things to do, and can let you know about places for brekkie, lunch and dinner. Her Airbnb is peaceful, inviting place to stay.

Trisha's place is exactly as described and as shown in the photo's. Excellent, well maintained, clean, private self-contained accommodation in one of the best neighbourhoods in Cairns. I used to live in Cairns and will happily book here again on my next trip. So glad I found it, thanks Trisha !

My friend and I had a wonderful stay, Trisha is a really nice and welcoming host, she was really helpful whether by letting us know about the activities, what to do around Darwin, the places to go to and she was always keen on sharing her experience. The studio is really clean, tidy and well furnished, you can use all the facilities - laundry, bikes, pool... It is also really well located you can do everything by bus, bike or by renting a car. We would definitely come back to Trisha's place the next time we will be in Cairns!

We loved staying at Trisha's place. It was clean and private and the swimming pool was such a great way to end the afternoon and relax in the evening. Trisha gave us local knowledge about the tours and bus information. We found it so easy to walk down the street and catch the bus to the city center. We also enjoyed the 15 min walk to the rainforest botanical gardens. We will stay there again if we return.
