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.

Couldn't ask for a more perfect location , gorgeously styled rainforest room was amazing sitting back listening to sounds outside.
We had everything we needed and Robyn was an amazing host .. very welcoming.
There are already so many nice reviews of Robyn and her properties, I'm not sure what else there is to say.
She is an incredibly helpful and accommodating hostess and the room was wonderfully thought out, with every detail being considered.
I would recommend this place to any of my friends or family traveling through.
With that said - I would highly suggest those traveling through rent a car. The real beauty of Far North Queensland really requires a vehicle to properly enjoy.
We booked Robyn's perfect-looking studio with some cynicism: glowing reviews, gorgeous pictures, high praises for Robyn's welcoming, generous hosting, we were sure it would be just fine. Well, the reviews did her and her studio some justice, but our experience here was beyond anything we could have imagined. The studio was spotless, beautifully appointed, GORGEOUS, complete with coffee and a welcome cake (cake!). There was a wonderful porch, abutting the rainforest. Pool was perfect, night sounds (from forest) perfect. Even the promise of a resident kookaburra was fulfilled. Robyn was even better though: thoughtful, beyond generous (we did not book a car and she insisted on picking us up/dropping us off at the airport, driving us into town according to our schedule, etc. - incredibly personable and lovely all around), always ready to offer advice and recommendations for... anything in the area and beyond, and a great tour guide! Thank you, Robyn! Wish we could have stayed longer. Northern Queensland was the high point of our 8 days in Australia. Don't mean to be effusive, but...
Robyn runs an amazing airbnb in paradise. No stones have been left unturned in her bungalow.
It was our first time in Cairns and we found her place to be in an ideal location close to the airport, CBD and many other places to visit in the area.
We had a kitchenette and would eat in on occasion and enjoy the bit of rain forest we were in.
Robyn was very pleasant and helped us decide which places we should visit and how long it took to get there.
I will especially miss a little Kookaburra who visited us every day.
We loved our stay at the Stratford studio. It was the perfect honeymoon place for us. Robyn was a wealth of knowledge on where to go when we asked, but the studio itself was very private. It was like being in the middle of the rain forest. We loved the closeness of the place to everything. We did a lot of sight seeing during the day, & the studio was so tranquil & relaxing to come back to. The resident kookaburra was a delight. All in all we loved it & will use it again if we go back to Cairns. Thanks Robyn for a memorable & romantic honeymoon. Donna & Jason.
This studio must be one of the best places we have ever been to. It was beautiful, quiet, with exotic flowers and plants surrounding the appartment.
We had many dips in the pool, became friends with a Kookaburra sitting on the verandah.
The studio was just as beautiful as the pictures show. Very clean and delicately furnished.
Our host Robyn and her husband Terry went over the limits with their hospitality. Definitely a place we would like to return to!
