This is one of the Far North's nicer beach suburbs and Clifton Beach is the typical palm swaying blue seas beach with great walks and open spaces. The beach is a 5 minute walk or short cycle ride
There is a comprehensive shopping mall with all services a three minute walk away. It has a medical centre.
Regular buses to and from the city and north to Palm Cove are available 24 hours a day and from at a bus stop 2 minutes from the house. Airport transfers can be by bus or taxi. Secure parking on site is available.
There are two dogs (a very small and medium size) extremely friendly who like ball chasing.
Gardening is encouraged if you feel inclined and flower plucking is also.
We would prefer no other pets.
Enjoyed our time at Kim's House. Clifton Beach is the perfect location to use as a base for exploration of the Cairns region. 5 minutes away from several zoos and museums, 30 minutes away from Cairns Central, 45 minutes away from rainforest and diving opportunities. Hiring a car is a must if you really want to explore the area.
Kim is a great host. He had breakfast for us every morning. Having fresh picked fruit salad every morning was one of our favorite things about breakfast. I also liked that he introduced us to local Australian foods. Yes, we also got to try Veggiemite. Even brought home a small jar.
Kim has a beautiful home. His whole living area opens up to the outdoors to provide a great atmosphere and lots of breezes. I've never been in a home that opened up like that and I found that I really like it. You just have to be mindful of mosquitos during the rainy season. Find some nice smelling bug repellant for your skin and you'll be fine. Kim had some on hand for us to use.
I felt right at home. I made pots of coffee or tea whenever I was wanting some. I washed my laundry on several occasions. I took over the living room several times to hook up our computer to the TV. (Had to watch my team.) I even stocked the refrigerator with beer so we all could enjoy some cold refreshment.
Kim even had the opportunity to hang out with us one day. We explored an aboriginal village then went shopping. It was nice having him with us because he was able to offer insight that otherwise we would not have had. Thanks Kim!
After a hard day of exploring, it was always nice to be greeted by Kim's two dogs. We always had enough energy to play with and pet the dogs. The pups are as laid back as Kim and they enjoy everyone's company.
Had a great time. I would recommend Kim's Tropical Treat.
We recently stayed with Kim and his two friendly, well behaved dogs for five nights. Kim's lovely home, secluded within his beautiful evolving garden seems a long way from the world - a real feel of tropical lifestyle - and yet, only a 5 minute stroll to unspoiled Clifton Beach and along the beautiful beach to relaxed and friendly Palm Cove's restaurants and cafés; also lovely walking paths through the bush. 5 minutes the other way from Kim's is a good little shopping centre (we enjoyed the Thai restaurant there and fish and chips taken to the beach at dusk). Breakfast was always waiting for us each morning on the big verandah (the best fruit salad) for us to enjoy. Kim's friendly, relaxed manner made us feel at home immediately. Highly recommended holiday experience.
My friend and I spent two nights at Kim's and I must say he and his place were just perfect. He's a very polite person, ready to help (he drove us back and forth to the airport!) and breakfast was very good. I'd love to visit him again!
Kim was a lovely host and we were very comfortable in his beautiful house. Our toddler was enchanted by the place, especially the two friendly dogs. Thanks Kim for a wonderful and all too brief holiday.

We spent three nights in Kims beautiful home. It was in a quiet neighborhood, close to some of the best beaches with a nice big garden and two adorable dogs! The was an undeniable calmness about the place. Its everything you see in the pictures. Kim was a fantastic host- We were treated to a lovely breakfast every morning and shared some great conversations over a afternoon coffee or wine. We were sad to leave!
HIghly recommended! Thanks Kim!
