Staying at Robyn and Terry's place was truly a highlight of our trip to Australia! The apartment was quiet and had a secluded balcony overlooking the rainforest--yet just minutes away from downtown Cairns. We enjoyed exotic bird calls in the evening and mornings. Robyn and Terry were unbelievably generous hosts--we were treated like visiting family members. They oriented us to Cairns, taught us the rules of the road and drove us to and from where we needed until we got a rental car. We would love to come back!
Robyn was incredibly hospitable. She was very flexible and willing to change her plans because of some travel difficulties (we were flying standby). She drove us around town to get a feel of the place and had fresh milk, english muffins and jams in our room for our first breakfast. The accommodations were perfect! Even better than the photos. We enjoyed our luxurious suite and recommend it to anyone looking for some peace and quiet in Cairns. It was so nice to be able to cook for ourselves in the evening and use the grill on the pool deck. There was a wonderful thai restaurant within walking distance, as well as several shops and markets. It was also very convenient to the Kuranda railway freshwater station. Robyn is a great host and we highly recommend her studios.
Robyn was a very nice and caring host. She picked us up from the airport, showed us all interesting points in and around Cairns and even went with us for a short shopping stop. Great! Our room, The Studio, was spacious, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and with all facilities that you need. On the balcony we had breakfast and enjoyed all the butterflies that were passing near by. It felt like living in a jungle resort. Fantastic place with all the privacy that you need. But it's good to have a car, so you can do easier the individual sightseeing. All in all we can highly recommend this accommodation and Robyn as a host!
The host was lovely, full of information, and went out of her way to ensure we were comfortable at all times. The property was everything we expected and more. The surroundings are just amazing
Über diese Unterkunft und über Robyn wurde wirklich bereits alles gesagt. Und alles ist noch schöner als auf der Internetseite beschreiben.
Die Wohnung ist wunderschön und mehr als gut ausgestattet.
Es fehlt an nichts und Robyn ist die perfekte Gastgeberin.
Wir hoffen einmal wiederkommen zu können.
Robyn and Terry were brilliant! We loved having our own studio apartment on the edge of a rainforest but close to all the main roads. Robyn's suggestions on places to visit, the local Woolies for groceries, restaurants and even which chemist or doctor to go to if needed was great. It was wonderful to stay in the countryside rather than in a busy city. When we left we felt as though we have made new friends.
