An apartment close to the city (3 blocks from the central city) with pool in the facility. This is my home so it has that feel and I'm a functional self aware nerd so there is WiFi and other little knick knacks that make life more fun.
There are some books if you are interested in having a down day reading and there is a decent kitchen for food. The apartment is close to almost everything in Cairns city so walking is almost all you'll need.
There is a lagoon a few blocks away as well as restaurants and a large park by the water 4 blocks from the front door.
Interaction with Guests
I'll be living in the other room but work away so I might be home or I might not. It's a lucky dip. Someone else might book you in if I'm not home. Also, if I'm out and I get two bookings you'll have another person in my room that you can hang out with if you like.
Cairns city is a cool little place. It's got everything from decadent indulgence to schooners with tradesmen in a local pub and everything in between. That's why I love it and I think you will too.
There are buses to everywhere you could want to go and you can walk to all the major bus stops. There's also a train but I don't know anybody who uses it for anything except the love of trains as the bus is quicker and cheaper.
Other Things to Note
Cairns is at the footstep of the rainforest and tablelands. Get out and explore it and you won't be disappointed.
Treat my home as if it's yours while being honest and courteous; and we wont have any issues.
Nice room in 2 bedroom flat. Flat is completly equipped. Dish washer, laundry, tv, micro wave, fridge, wifi,etc...
If you want you can also take a swim in the pool. Room has also a balcony with table and chairs. All in all a very affordable room. We would come again when we are back in Cairns.
Though I haven't met him personally, Joe was a great host who reponded to my questions in no time. His apartment was immaculately clean, spacious and in a very good location. I loved lying on the sun right next to the pool or having my breakfast on the huge balcony. There is the railway behind the complex but it did not mean a problem at all, since there were no trains during the night, and even at daytime I heard only 2 passing by. The Esplanade and the downtown are in walking distance. Overall, I had a wonderful stay at his place and would definitely come back any time. Thanks Joe!
Apartamento muy espacioso y comfortable. Todo muy nuevo y en buenas condiciones, el wifi funcionaba perfectamente. Fácil acceso con las indicaciones enviadas previamente. La piscina era una gozada.
Joe sent a detailed e mail with instructions about how to get into the apartment. Unfortunately, the other room in the apartment was rented to someone else who forgot to return the keys to the lock box as instructed. Fortunately, we were able to contact Joe by phone, who advised us that there was someone else in the building with a master key, who then let us into the apartment. All's well that ends well, but it was somewhat stressful, and Joe said he was 1 hour away, so if the person with the master key had not been available, I don't know what we would have done.
The apartment itself was clean and comfortable, and the location was good.
Joe was very flexible, allowed me to break up my stay into two blocks while I was gone on a dive boat! Great stay as always!
Fantastic experience in Cairns! Joe's place is well -located, clean and bright. No issues at all getting access and Joe responds very quickly to any questions.
Joe's apartment is in a fantastic location in Cairns. We were not quite prepared for just how hot and humid it was in the area but the apartment had an AC and a ceiling fan so being in the room was a relief. During our trip we had the whole place to ourselves so we had the added comfort of complete privacy.
The apartment location is great (although finding the actual unit is a bit tricky despite the fantastic set of instructions Joe gives to each guest.) It is only a 20 minute walk from all the action which made it very convenient.
While we never saw Joe personally he was easily available via phone and email and was quick to respond. Great host, great location, great city!
