Was lovely, very beautiful house. Whole family had a great time. Right next to a pub and a Italian joint and not far from attractions when you have a car :)
The highlight of our Cairns trip! The place was spotless and cosy despite its large size. Three of my friends and I were happy to hang around the house all day long. A great place to return to after a long day out in the sea. Ross provided many towels (bathing and beach towels) for us which was very thoughtful of him. Washing facilities were great.
Kitchen very well equipped, we had a great time cooking there. Pictures don't do justice to the house.
Only (minor) gripe was that the wifi wasn't working properly. That didn't pose too much inconvenience to us though as we have our own wifi device.
Ross replied really quickly, responsive. Will recommend this place to anyone visiting and will definitely be back if we find ourselves in Cairns again.
Ross popped by and gave us a friendly welcome and recommended places for us to visit.
The house is exactly like the photos shown, very tidy, and all the essentials are provided as well. Neighbourhood is quiet and peaceful. Bus stop and convenience store is a short walk away, and the accommodation is close to the airport and city central.
Only issue I can come up with is that the internet usage was already used up by the time we arrived.
Otherwise, perfect! Thanks Ross (:
My partner & I went to Cairns for my daughters wedding (from Chisholm NSW). It was my daughter who found this property & I booked it as it looked ideal for us & other family & friends coming up for the wedding. It was a 15 minute drive from the ceremony at Holloways Beach & 5 minutes from the reception at Stradford Bowling Club. My daughter & her 2 bridesmaids stayed the night before the wedding & we made up the corsages & button hole pins, as well as the bouquets for the girls.
We booked 7 nights and right from the moment we walked in, we felt at home. The property is very comfortable, spacious & well set out. When there, we spent our time out on the top balcony - no spectacular views but lots of trees around. There was a lovely breeze on the balcony most of the day, especially in the evening, which cooled you down.
We did not have any bedding for the fold down couches when the girls came over but this was my fault as I did not let Ross know we were going to have more than 6 people staying. I thought there might have been extra linen, bedding & towels in the cupboards, just in case!
Close to everything we needed for the wedding & my daughter also did not live far away. Close to the city centre for shopping, trips out to the reef, going out for lunch/dinner & the airport for picking up other guests. We also did the Skyrail & a drive to Port Douglas which was also not far away.
Overall we had a lovely stay. I was a little concerned about Ross's parents in the unit next door - that we were too noisy, especially out on the balcony but his Mum said we were very quiet compared to some of the other groups that had stayed!
Thank you Ross & Karen - you made us very welcome in Cairns. We will try & spread the word.
Great value for the price, and an unique experience. The service provided by Ross was amazing. Beautiful decorated and clean house, easy to find things around. Totally satisfied.
It was amazing!
Take my hat off for all services offered by Ross.
All went perfectly as planned
Beautiful house! Very spacious and roomy. Everything is new and fresh.
The host was brilliant and very friendly, happy to have a chat with you and answer any questions you have and offer advise on the best places to visit. The photos are very accurate and the description of the home is exactly what you get.
Located is a quiet street close to local shops so you have everything you need close by. Short trip into Cairns City and the Airport. Would recommend this place to my friends and family. Thank you for having us.
