About this listing

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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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

There may be other guests in the apartment.

Tracey is brilliant - friendly, helpful and good communication. Good pool, small but often empty. Enjoyed the view over the pool and watched the flying foxes every evening. Comfortable bed, good shower and well appointed kitchen. Lovely place to stay in Cairns.

Joe and Tracy's place was the perfect place for us to rest after 4 days on a liveaboard in the great barrier reef. Although we never had the chance to meet Joe and Tracy they were quick to respond with any questions we had. The kitchen had everything we needed to make dinner and the pool was lovely. Would highly recommend their place to anyone looking in the area!
