The Space

Modern self contained apartment with 1 bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and living area. The apartment is on the ground floor underneath a high set "Queenslander" heritage house in Stratford, 10kms from Cairns city centre. There is a double bed in the separate bedroom and a bed settee in the living room which also has a large flat screen TV.

You can have full use of our pool, garden, washing machine etc. Free wifi. easy parking. Bus service is 100m away, or borrow one of our bicycles! During the day we are at work or school, so you have the pool and garden to yourself.

Stratford is a reasonably quiet neighbourhood - there are two sets of shops with cafes and restaurants each 20 minutes walk away. Restaurants within walking distance include a very popular Thai restaurant - Siam Orchid Spicy.

We have a beagle dog called Matilda, she is very friendly and gentle.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Clean and comfortable apartment. Very spacious; enjoyed waking up to the sounds of tropical birds. Would definitely recommend a car to get into Cairns and to travel to other areas (rainforest, waterfalls, etc).

  • We had a most comfortable week with Lyn. The accommodation was excellent, the location very quiet, yet within easy driving distance of Cairns, and the weather was perfect.
    I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for accommodation near Cairns - a car is probably a necessity.

  • Lyn offers a great apartment a bit outside of Cairns, but it is for sure much better what you can get in the centre of Cairns.
    As we entered the apartment, we were just impressed. It is nice and huge. Has plenty of daylight. We loved that it is surrounded by nature and enjoyed the different animal sounds. It is a place where we have been really able to relax. We would recommend to rent a car and explore the beaches between the North of Cairns and Port Douglas, which are really beautiful and anything but crowded.
    Lyn has a lovely family and their dog (Matilda) is always eager to pass by and say hello to the guests. We enjoyed staying at Lyn's place and would always come back. You won't regret choosing this apartment. Thank you Lyn for a great time.

  • Situado en la parte posterior de la casa, con suficiente intimidad. Situado en las afueras de Cairns en un barrio muy tranquilo (necesita coche).
    El trato es familiar y agradable. Tienes tranquilidad si la quieres y la perra Matilda es un encanto.
    Aconsejo este sitio.

  • My partner and I had a great time at the apartment!!! Its very clean, comfortable and spacious!! The house is located in nice quite area so we had a very good sleep. Lyn is very nice and helpful, she left us breakfast food in the fridge for us. We really enjoyed Matilda's (their dog) company. One of the best air bnb experiences I had!!

  • Lyn is a very helpful host. We arrived a little too early but she was very accomodating. Lovely garden setting!
    Great breaky, muesli and yoghurt, bread and jam, freshly ground coffee. Gorgeous shower. Super comfy bed and linen.
    Very private, although there was a little mix up when another house guest walked in Sat night to use the bathroom. Think he got a fright.
    All in all, a great stay! PS Cheers for allowing me to do about fifty loads of laundry :)

  • What a beautiful set-up in Stratford, so close to Cairns CBD and yet so quiet like in the country-side!
    The apartment is spacious and equipped with all you need, even the settee sofa-bed is very comfortable and helped creating an additional sleeping space. Lyn and Rowen are great hosts. The fridge was stacked with all the food you could possibly have for breakfast.We had the best time of our (email hidden)ank you Lyn.
