Cairns as I see it...Room 2

Apartment - Private room · McLeod Street, Cairns, QLD 4870, Australia

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 heaps of 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

I also have a Farm near Bartle Frere and can arrange hiking, fishing, camping, ect. Just ask and I'll do my best to organise it.

  • In total I spent 12 days. Beautiful location, beautiful apartment, pool appreciated when you want to relax on a hot and humid weather. Very easy to get everything you need with the Cairns Central (commercial center) 10 min walk to the center of Mcleod city it is 25 min walk. Traveling by bus is also very easy and the stop is practically on the corner.

    There is a brochure at our disposal that allows us not to miss the essence of Cairns. Use the map, go to these places and you will understand how Cairns is not only for diving in the Great Barrier Reef, which is really great but I liked this place because it is very easy to win everyday. Remember the great walk on the waterfront ....

    Thanks Joseph ! :o)_________________________________________________

    Au total j'y ai passé 12 jours. Bel emplacement, bel appartement, piscine appréciée lorsque l'on veut se détendre par un temps chaud et humide. Très facile de se procurer tout ce dont on a besoin avec le Central Cairns ( Centre commercial) à 10 min à pied sur Mcleod vers le centre-ville qui lui, est à 25 min à pied. Se déplacer en bus est également très facile et l'arrêt est pratiquement sur le coin de la rue.

    Il y a à notre disposition une brochure qui nous permet de ne rien manquer de l'essentiel de Cairns. Utilisez la carte, allez à ces endroits et vous comprendrez combien Cairns n'est pas seulement pour la plongée dans la Grande Barrière de Corail, ce qui est tout à fait génial mais j'ai aimé cet endroit parce qu'il y est très facile de décrocher du quotidien. N'oubliez pas la grande promenade sur le bord de l'eau....

    Merci Joseph ! :o)

  • I'm very happy with my stay at Joe's apartment. It's well situated, only 15 minutes walk to the centre. The pool is very nice when it's hot (which means all the time). You directly feel like at home here. Clean and quiet. A bargain for the price. Definitely a place ta recommend. And Joe is very sweet too!

  • Joe was perfect host.
    Communications were very easy and quick.
    The room and the house are very cozy and everything you could need is present.

    The house is quite close to the Cairns city centre and to the Esplanade where most of the restaurants and shops are.

    I recommend Joe's place for visiting Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.

  • Joe's place was great! I didn't actually have the opportunity to meet him but he communicated well and efficiently to provide instructions on entering/using the space. It was a clean space very close to the nearby shops and Esplanade where most activity happens in Cairns. Would recommend others to stay here as well
