The Esplanade, Cairns Central, The Marina are all within walking distance. The Apartment is located and overlooks Lilly Creek park bikeway that runs alongside the complex giving it a very tropical outlook from the living area located outside.
This giving you a feeling of being in the tropics but still having the convenience of access to the areas of downtown.
The bike path/ walkway that runs alongside Lilly Creek, you can use as a short cut walking into Cairns Central or The Esplanade.

Other Things to Note

Cairns boosts beautiful warm winter days and slightly cool nights normally during the months of June through to September.
The summer and what is known as the monsoon & Cyclone season starts to build up from October and goes through to April/May.
Each season has it's own advantages and disadvantages pending on what you have come to Cairns to see and do.
Do your research so you know what weather to expect generally, as the heat & humidity from November to March is quite high but a great time to go diving and the RainForrest is at its best during monsoon.
Winters are very pleasant generally with no humidity and only cool to mild nights.
My philosophy in life is to treat people how you like to be treated yourself.
Your welcomed into my home to treat as your home during your stay as long as you are polite and respectful.
Having traveled around the globe in varying types of accommodation, the most important is having a place to stay thats comfortable and homely.
I have lived in the area on and off over 25 years, please feel free to ask about any questions you have regarding what to do & see in Cairns and the surrounding areas.
We had a wonderfull but short stay at Robert's place. We just spend the night after a flight from brisbane and had a really good sleep and shower. The next day we left for our trip on the eastcoast with the van. It was a good place to take a break. Thanks Robert for the pick up at the airport a very welcome service at no cost.
This was our third experience of using airbnb and it was by far our best. Could not recommend staying here more!! Robert was an ANGEL. He was so welcoming and friendly, it felt like we were staying with a friend, we felt so comfortable :) he gave us tons of advice about the best places to go etc, and not only in Cairns! We stayed in the ensuite room, and it was perfect. So lovely and clean, something we haven't experienced everywhere we've been! We had our own little section on the balcony too, which was great. The location was brilliant too, only about a 15 minute walk to the main esplanade. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Also, I arrived with terrible sunburn and straight away Robert gave me some cream that was brilliant for it! Could not have asked for a better host, great guy!!!
Abbey and Dave :)
Robert was a very friendly host, and we enjoyed chatting with him about our countries and traveling in general. He has lots of knowledge of Australia and is eager to chat about travel plans and share his opinion of Cairns.
The room is excellent, with big sliding glass doors that access its own partitioned section of the balcony, a big comfy bed and lounge, and an ensuite bathroom with shower. It has a hotel vibe but with a few personal touches.
Great experience staying here and I would recommend.
Robert was a very friendly host
he picked us up from the jetty.
Room and en suite were lovely, clean and the bed VERY VERY comfortable.
I really love it !!
A great location too!!
Robert was a perfect host, he picked me up from the airport, made me feel very welcome and really looked after me. I was travelling alone so very much appreciated how kind and thoughtful he was. He also checked me in online and dropped me back at the airport in time for my next flight.
My room and en suite were lovely, spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable. A great location too, the pick up point for my Daintree trip was only a few minutes walk away. He has travel books to look at, helful leaflets, was happy to advise as he has great local knowledge and was good company too. I would certainly recommend him without hesitation, a pleasure to stay with. Many thanks Robert, kind regards, Anne.
Robert was an excellent host very friendly and helpful. The room is exactly as shown in the pictures and isn't far from town. Just what we needed!
Robert's place was just as described and what I expected... Clean and pleasant and I had a lovely sleep. I only stayed one night, but wished I was staying longer as so pleasant. I didn't meet Robert, but he gave me a lot of information about the local area which was very detailed and helpful! I would definitely recommend.
