It is excellent house especially in the hot weather while in Cairns. Feel like home and and very good place if you want to find a place for the vacation after you getting exhausted outside.
Ross is very nice and helpful. The House so clean and comfortable, we all enjoyed our days in Cain's.Thanks.
We had a wonderful time during our stay in Cairns. Karen and Ross were excellent hosts. Ross greeted us upon our arrival to Cairns and was extremely helpful when we needed him. The location is great being only 10 minutes from Cairns and easy driving distance to other attractions in the area. Would definitely stay here again in the future. Thanks!
This was our first airbnb experience and it really turned out to be as good as it can be! Karen and Ross have a really beautiful house. The location is peaceful and all the pictures really tell you the true story - it is just great. There was much more space than our family of four needed so we settled down on the main floor. Our schedule was a bit of a hassle, but Karen and Ross answered to all our messages promptly and gave us good info. There was even a bottle of wine waiting in the fridge as we arrived and some great toys for our boys to play with. Thank you Ross for pointing our the Breakfast with the birds place - it made our stay even better. Next time we will surely try to find our way back to you!
Beautiful living spaces, separated into two units which were combined for us. The location is some way outside of Cairns, so there is access to all the advantages of the city, while staying in this quiet village. You'll need your own wheels or a significant taxi budget. With the ramp outside, the property looks wheelchair accessible, but it is not. It's a dream home and a dream holiday retreat.
