No smoking inside house.. outside is fine....no late night parties.
We had 3 fantastic days by Sandra and John in their beautiful house and the wonderful garden with pool . Sandra and John were so lovely and helpful; they showed us interesting animals and gave uns tipps for the area. We enjoyed it so much and would recommend this location with 100%.
Sandra and John welcomed us warmly and ensured we had everything we needed to make our stay as fabulous as the beautiful surrounds. A truly gorgeous place at the foothills of the rainforest with a lovely pool, fantastic gardens and a fish and turtle-filled creek that completely satisfied the needs of our curious children who had space to run around and explore. A great base from which to experience Cairns and wider surrounds, or in which just to hang-out. Our family of four loved it. Thankyou!
Fantastic place to stay and Johnny and Sandra are great hosts. If you like the outdoor life with home comforts you'll like this place. Air con, plunge pool, wi-fi, barbecue, tropical rain forest for a garden, what more could you want....just grab a car!
This is a fantastic property located in the lush hills on the outskirts of Cairns. The area has much wildlife and many cockatiels that at to the features. John and Sandra were kind and generous making our stay very enjoyable and the local info they gave us was very helpful in making out visit to the area the best expieriencePoor we have had.
Sandra and John are a lovely couple very friendly helpful and full of advice,knowledge and tips about the local and surrounding area.
Their beautiful home is located in its own private paradise which is peaceful and blessed with local inhabitants roaming in their own environment especially in the creek at the bottom of the property.
We found the accommodation to be comfortable and accurately described with hosts happy to include you and other guests or leave you to your own.
The listing was exactly as we had imagined and we were excited when we arrived. Unfortunately, a cyclone shortened our trip but Sandra and John were nice enough to spend the only evening we had in Cairns with us and share their stories. We will definitely be back and when we do, we'll stay here again.
Had a really wonderful stay - the hosts were really nice and very very helpful with advice, where to go, bookings etc. Great coffee at first light! You have to get up early to hear the dawn chorus and, if you are lucky, see the Duck Billed Platypus in the stream at the bottom of the garden. Great place to stay with great hosts in a wonderful location
