Interaction with guests
I am frequently away from my house so may not always be available to show you in. I am always contactable via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), email, Viber or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), for any questions and queries. Generally there is somebody to greet you and show you around the house. If I am there and host you generally we will have a bbq or 2 together. Feel free to come along on any trip we are doing. I have two children that come over on weekends. They are 16 and 14 and enjoy asking many many questions. When I am not home there is normally 3 people living in the house which range from local workers, to travellers, backpackers, or friends that are passing through or come up on a holiday. So you will never be bored or lonely. We have the greatest times in the house when all the people get together for dinner and enjoy good wine and good food.
Best thing about our neighbourhood is that its fairly quiet, neighbours are nice and it's quite close to town and amenities.
Public transport is not really good in Cairns. I would hire a car or bicycle. Sometimes it can be too hot to walk long distances for some people. If you get a bicycle, helmets must be worn by law. It is $23 approx from my home to the airport and $14 to the lagoon. 700m to Cairns Central Shopping center. Approximately 25 minutes walk to the lagoon. 20 minute walk to center of town to where bars and clubs etc are. 30 min walk to pier where the boats leave for reef trips. God forbid you need it but 30min walk to the hospital. Sports world gym and other gyms and yoga studios within 15 min walk.
Other things to note
There is only one shower and one toilet for the 4 rooms. Please be patient and understanding. Another bathroom is coming in 2017. This is a home not a hotel.
There is no smoking inside of the house. Noise is to be kept reasonable as the houses around are very close together and most things can be heard. Especially at night. Just be responsible and considerate to all people around you. Please clean up after yourself.
I am a 41 year old male. I have my own building business in Cairns and love to travel. I pride myself in provided a happy and clean environment for fellow travellers.
