The Space

**** Only a two minute stroll from the beautiful 1 klm golden sands of Trinity beach fringed by cafe's, restaurants and rainforest trees, this location provides everything you could desire for a perfect holiday. The weather up here ranges from warm to hot during the year so there is NO bad time to visit.

**** The Apartment is fully air-conditioned (plus fans in every room) and comprises 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and yours is our guest room with a comfortable queen bed, private bathroom (with shower, toilet and vanity, plus hairdryer and personalised Rose Room soaps) and large mirrored cupboard for storage. There is a private balcony and clothes drying area, through your own sliding doors with view to mountains and towards the ocean. Your balcony also has 2 chairs and a table for an intimate glass of something wet and cold.

**** The lounge area comprises 2 Micro suede sofas surrounding beautiful Indonesian tables making this apartment elegant but practical, comfortable and homely. The dining room seats 6 and we have another 4 seater dining table outside on the large west facing terrace so there are plenty of places to eat in privacy if you wish. Under storey garage parking, bus stop close by, (bus to the centre of Cairns takes about 30 mins - depending on the route) shops and world famous tourist attractions (The Great Barrier Reef and Heritage listed Tropical Rainforest) just down the road. You are welcome to use our kitchen which has an electric glass plate cook top and oven, washing machine, dryer, microwave, large fridge and freezer, plus kettle, toaster, etc.

**** Attractions in Far North Queensland include the Great Barrier Reef, Mossman Gorge, Port Douglas, the Daintree Peninsula, and many other wonderful spots (see our guidebook) plus Skyrail and Scenic railway up to the quaint village of Kuranda on the Atherton Tablelands. As qualified and experienced tour guides, Peter and/or Gabi can take you on private tours (for a small fee) and treat you to history and legends, and the best places that only the locals know about. For the Reef , the bus stop is only 50 metres away if you do not have your own car. Car Hire can be organised once you have arrived in Trinity Beach or on arrival at the airport, but PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ANY TOURS UNTIL YOU HAVE SPOKEN TO PETER AND GABI. This is because the weather can change rapidly and we like to pick the best day for your Reef cruise.

+++ A southern hemisphere winter should not deter you. I have posted some new photos taken only a couple of weeks ago - canoeing in the Coral Sea off the beach at Trinity Beach. The weather is magnificent and the reef sparkling. Temperatures have sunk to a mere 27 C and the nights are mild and clear. This is the time when the Southern Hemisphere comes to play in North Queensland and this is yet another time when we love to show you our beautiful Great Barrier Reef, ancient rain forests, waterfalls and Indigenous culture. The ocean is still warm with temps around 25C, making snorkelling and diving the first thing on the agenda. Contact us with your questions and we will answer within a very short period - unless it's the middle of the night!

**** Check out our Guidebook and ask us any questions about what you would like to do on your trip to our beautiful part of the world. We can help you organise it.

**** If you like birds, flora and fauna, we have masses of information. Sulphur crested cockatoos will greet you in the morning (not too early thankfully) as well as corellas, lorikeets, kookaburras, friar birds and curlews and the gardens are full of ginger plants, palms and cycads and much, much more.

**** Let us know what your likes and dislikes are from gourmet restaurants, bird watching, swimming on the Great Barrier Reef or local culture and we can point you in the right direction.

**** You are only 20 minutes from the centre of Cairns by car, where there are cinemas, a casino, marina and plenty of shopping, plus the supermarkets at Smithfield and Trinity Beach are only 3 to 10 minutes away by car plus there is a little corner shop on the beach front only 3 minutes walk away for emergency supplies. A bus ride is a little longer - it stops to pick people up! 35 - 45 minutes for the bus into town, but we are often going in ourselves so we can usually work that out.

**** Bikes are available for you and so is our canoe but only if you are competent experienced canoeists. We also have small catamaran which, if the weather is right, can be fun for the day - with Peter as Captain and Gabi as Chief Cook and bottle washer!

**** Free wireless internet available....password given on arrival.

*****We can pick you up at the airport for $25 - taxi fare is usually $60.

***** Good deals for car hire - we can arrange for you if you wish!


Guest Access

Guests have access to the entire apartment, with cooking and laundry facilities, free wifi, transport and an undercover garage for their rental cars.

Interaction with Guests

Peter and Gabi are the perfect hosts, on tap for ideas and planning of tours and we can drive you ourselves!

The Neighborhood

The beach at Trinity is exquisite, about a kilometre of golden sand. Supermarkets are anything from a five minute walk to a 10 minute drive.

Getting around

Public transport is available only 100 yards from our front door, with a bus stop that will take you into Cairns or to other beaches as well as on tour.
We also have bikes that you can borrow, a sailing boat we can take you out in if the weather is right and a canoe for experienced sea farers.

Other Things to Note

We prefer non-smokers but if you wish to indulge, outside is the best place!
We also have fishing rods and crab pots if you have a mind to dip a rod in the Coral Sea, plus masks and snorkels on the boat. If you go on a cruise to the Reef your snorkelling equipment is free but diving gear comes at a price - details when you get here.

  • I am really finding it hard to put into words how wonderful my stay with Gabi and Peter was!! I was welcomed into their home like a friend not a new acquaintance and their hospitality and kindness was outstanding! I feel lucky to have met them, stayed in their home and to have be shown around by people with such vast knowledge of the area! The room and apartment are beautiful and are exactly as the images display them to be. Everywhere you wish to visit is accessible and even being in Cairns mid winter couldn't have been more beautiful! Thank you Gabi and Peter for opening up your home to us airbnb visitors!!

  • Gabi & Peter were lovely hosts! Clean and very comfortable place. They both have some great advice if anyone is looking at going to the reef. Would recommend if looking for somewhere in the cairns area to stay.

  • We are so pleased to stay at Gabi's and Peter's place to get the most out of Nothern Queensland. Fortunately we didn't booked a Great Barrier Reef Snorkeling Tour before we arrived in Cairns, because Gabi gave us the best advises we could imagine to make the trip unforgetable. Gabi and Peter know everything about the area and always helped us with very good recommendations. We appreciate it so much to meet them and to stay in the beautiful and clean rose room with an own bathroom and balcony. Furthermore they invited us to a diner with their friends and we had a good time.
    This place is highly recommended.

  • Gabi and Peter are great hosts.
    Being themselves very involved in writing and film making etc., it was a real pleasure participating in their world.
    Needless to say their place was clean and cozy - Rose Room - simply pleasant.
    I thoroughly enjoyed staying with them,

    Thank you Jensen, love you two boys ! Sorry about Peter - three weeks on and one week home always makes it pot luck! Take care of yourself and good luck with your assignments!

  • Gabi and Peter were awesome! They picked my boyfriend and me up from airport, literally planned our week for us and booked everything we wanted, got us cheaper deals on EVERYTHING, let us use their bikes, etc. They were very welcoming, the room was perfect. The location was exactly what we wanted: quiet neighborhood, but in between the great things that lie north and south of cairns. We loved it!

    Thank you Mariana for a lovely review - we thoroughly enjoyed have you to stay.... it always feels like we have made new friends and the list keeps growing. Thank you both!

  • Unfortunately we didn't meet Peter during our stay, but many thanks to Gabi for showing us her country and giving us an understanding of the rain forest and the culture of the aboriginal people. Her suggestions about spending our time in the Cairns region were very helpful - in the light of the fact that we had to consider a cyclone in our plans. The room is comfortable. The handling with the kitchen and refrigerator a matter of taste.

    Response from Gabi & Peter:

    Hi Julia and Kai,
    The rainforest is always happy to have people interested in it... it was fun to show you round and let you see some of the great things we have here in Far North Queensland - and we were lucky not to be too hampered by Cyclone Ita!
    Take care of yourselves!
