We were warmly welcomed by John and Jan and shown through the apartment. It was very well appointed with all the facilities you would expect. Very tastefully decorated throughout.
A very pleasant apartment with the addition of views from the front balcony across the Esplanade to the coastline of the Great Barrier Reef.
We found the Villa perfect for our needs, well appointed, very clean and had everything we needed for a perfect stay.
My three sons and I stayed at Jon and Jan's place for a couple of days while touring Cairns. Jan and John's place is wonderful ! Right on the ocean, bright and airy with high ceilings and tons of room. John was there when we arrived and Jan brought us oranges to welcome us. They even booked our taxi back to the airport. I highly recommend a stay there. Thx John and Jan !
Our hosts, John and Jan could not have been more helpful and friendly. John pointed out where everything was in the kitchen and how it all worked. The whole unit was extremely well equipped, catering to our every need and most importantly, spotless. Not having been to Cairns previously, we asked about places to visit and were given excellent ideas and directions.
The lovely Jan even brought us tropical fruits from the market to try.
Our unit overlooked the water and having breakfast on the balcony each day was a special treat. A short 10 minute walk found us in the city centre where we could swim in the lagoon, shop or stay to eat.
Our whole experience staying with Jan and John was wonderful and I would highly recommend them to all.
This place was absolutely amazing! It was very spacious and had all the facilities needed (i.e. air conditioning and ceiling fans) to ensure our stay was very comfortable and relaxed. It was also a delight to watch the sunrise while relaxing on the balcony with a cup of coffee. There is a bit of a stroll (about 15 min) to get the city centre but this also meant that it was quieter.
Jan and John were great hosts and were very prompt in arranging the place for us. Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful villa!
We arrived at the appatment after midnight but John proposed a good solution to get in without disturbing anyone. Unexpectedly we found fruit, water and milk in the fridge upon arrival. The appartment was larger than we expected and contained everything we needed. Aircon was helpful for a good sleep. We were invited to get up early as the windows did not keep all noise outside. The appartment is located next to the esplanade, a good place for morning walks and public workout. If you need to go to the supermarket regularly consider a taxi for the way back, it is affordable. As we had only 3 days in Cairns we profited from Jan & John, living next door, to find out the needful. They helped us to organize our days like a little travel agency and we were happy with their service. They were really nice and uncomplicated hosts with an open door in case of need.
Everything about this place was just as described, if not better! Jan and John were incredibly helpful! The apartment is in a great location and suited all of our needs. It slept 4 guests comfortably. I highly recommend it!!
