Interaction with Guests

Your welcome to come and stay in my home if you are respectful and polite.
I also understand that your on holidays and are here to relax, so I don't expect you to feel as you need to have endless ongoing conversations.
I do however expect you to be Courteous and well-mannered whilst staying in my home.
I will always do my best to be as helpful as I can.

Please contact me for any information regarding Cairns, I have websites that provide discounted bookings for the Reef, Daintree and many more activities.
Also if you have any other questions regarding any other locations in Australia, please ask.

The Neighborhood

As stated above, I am located on the very edge of the Cairns CBD.
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.
This is a link to Cairns Bicycle paths (URL HIDDEN)

Getting Around

Being on the edge of the downtown precinct, you can walk/cycle or catch a bus to anywhere in the Cairns central area safely. As mentioned above I am located on one of many Cairns bicycle paths.
You can catch a bus that is a 5 minute walk away and will take you several more blocks into downtown, please see maps in photo album. Otherwise the Esplanade is only a 6 block walk away,15-25 minutes depending on your fitness
Have a look on G maps to get your bearings.
Cairns Central Shopping Mall is 2 blocks away( train and buses for Kuranda leave from there)
The reef fleet terminal for diving and snorkelling trips are 25-30 minute walk away pending on your fitness levels.

Other Things to Note

Airport pick up and drop off are available if organised 5 days in advance of your stay. I will still definitely try pending on my work schedule and availability.
Pickups that are before the check-in time are okay, I will drop you into the downtown area and bring your luggage back with me. Check-in is available after 10pm but I don't do airport pick ups after 10pm as I do have to usually work the next day.
Drop offs are anytime up until your checkout time unless your on the 6.00am flights. Luggage can be stored here during certain periods and on further discussion until your ready to leave for the airport.
There are shuttle buses and taxis as an alternative.
Taxis are around $25 and shuttles vary from around $16

When booking tours, some companies will not pickup from residential addresses, please use The Citysider Holiday Apartments as your pick up location ( 5 minute walk on bike path)

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.

House Rules

I am a very approachable person, I do my best so that you have the best possible experience in Cairns on your holiday - Please read my reviews.
If you have any queries in regards to anything written below, please just ask me.

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 to anybody you encounter in the apartment.

Unfortunately the following now has been added to this section due to those few people that like to take advantage of someones trusting nature in opening up their home to allow people to stay somewhere affordable and comfortable at the same price that you would for a backpackers in Cairns.

Writing this actually really saddens me as I consider myself to be upfront, approachable and if anything, overly friendly.

Rudeness, Unruly Behaviour, purposely not following instructions on the use of Electrical appliances and any form of Discrimination - Racial, Sexual or otherwise will be the grounds for the termination of your stay and the instant departure from my home - ASAP!

Cairns is generally on water restrictions and if not, I follow the Water Wise Saving Philosophy. Showers are to be kept around the 5 minute area. Ladies, if you need to wash your hair I understand.
Cairns might be in the tropics but we don't always receive the monsoon rains we are meant to.

The use of the internet service provided - Fair use policy applies, which means use it for communication purposes, surfing, entertainment
If I receive any notification from the law enforcement agencies that now regulate Australian laws in regards to illegal content, your details will be provided to them for prosecution.
If you need to update a program or application on your device, please consult with me first so as I check my data allowance. It's generally totally okay.
