My name is Kay and I live in Whitfield - an older, leafy suburb of Cairns, just 10 minutes by car from the airport, the city and the sea. I am close to a bus route, and also have a bicycle to share.
I have two comfortable rooms available in my home, a double and a twin, which have their own separate guest bathroom and toilet. The twin room is the larger of the two rooms and can be reconfigured as a double. There is a BBQ and separate guest fridge on the back deck for guests who wish to self cater. For those who would like to dine locally, there are some nice restaurants and coffee shops within walking distance, as well as the possibility of free home delivery of a range of take-away foods. A simple breakfast of cereal, toast, fruit and yoghurt is included. Internet access is available for guests able to connect wirelessly.
Cairns is very much a tourist town with visitors coming to see the Great Barrier Reef and islands, the beautiful tropical rainforests, Port Douglas and the Atherton Tablelands. The Botanical Gardens are in the next suburb, an easy walk from my home. The Cairns Esplanade features a 2.5km boardwalk and bicycle track as well as BBQs, picnic tables, a wonderful children's playground and a swimming lagoon - all free!
We really enjoyed our stay in Kays appartment. She even picked us up from the airport and made us feel very welcome. The room is big and the veranda beautiful to have breakfast in the morning. It youre looking for a quiet home away from home this is the place to go! Thanks Kay:)
Our stay with Kay was a wonderful expereince. Kay is friendly helpful, interested, interesting and well travelled herself. She went out of her way to make us feel at home, and we enjoyed spending brief time wihth Kay in downtown Cairns. We highly recommend Kay as a host.
Our stay with Kay was our third AIRBNB experience and like the other was a very pleasant experience. We arrived late in the afternoon after experiencing the rain forest and Kay was there to welcome us and show us around her home and our rooms. We were traveling with a friend and the accommodation was very good for this arrangement. We had a bedroom with an attached toilet room and bathroom that offered good privacy? We were able to shut our bedroom door so that our friend could use the essential rooms in privacy as well. The second bedroom is only rented if needed by those renting the first bedroom. Kay provided breakfast material including juice, milk, bread and fruit. Kay was a wonderful host and we enjoyed visiting with her. We definitely recommend staying with Kay with up to three or four people.
We liked staying in Kay's home very much, had a pleasant barbecue together talking about travelling and hiking, teaching and the rest of the world. We enjoyed the comfort of a home and the short distance to the airport and city centre. Kay recommended a wonderful jogging route for Andreas and other things to do in Cairns.
Kay was a wonderful host. she is a very interesting and warm lady. Her hospitality and generosity was beyond our expectations. Would have been very happy to have stayed with her a lot longer.
Kay was a fantastic host! Really helpful and relaxed. We all felt very welcome and comfortable in her home. It was a great base for exploring Cairns!
We only stayed 2 nights at Kay's home and it was a wonderful experience to meet Kay. She is such an interessting, warm person and we appreciate how lovely she prepared our room and the breakfast for us. We would come back and stay with her at her wonderful home anytime again.
We really enjoyed our stay with Kay in Cairns. The home is located in a great spot as everything is easily accessible. The house was very comfy, quiet, and relaxing. Kay is incredibly nice and we immediately felt at home. Would definitely recommend this house to others looking to spend time in Cairns and will be staying there if we ever go back. Thanks again, Kay!
Our stay in Cairns was wonderful and staying with Kay made it even better! Her home was in a perfect location. ( 5 min. From airport). She provided us with a "home away from home" and was most helpful and informative about Cairns and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend her and her home to any travelers looking for a great time in Cairns!
We thouroughly enjoyed our stay with Kay. It was our first time using Airbnb and we were a bit apprehensive, but Kay made us feel right at home. Her home is lovely, clean and has everything you need. The outside dining area made eating breakfast a real treat and meant that we didn't feel as though we were imposing on her privacy.
The location was great for us - 10minutes into town, but close to the highway for day trips and exploring.
I would highly recommend Kay as a host.
