Igloo by the sea..... A unique tranquil cottage just steps from one of Cairns' most pristine beaches.
This is a 1 bedroom with a queen bed that sleeps 2 adults comfortably. There is an additional sofa bed which can be used for families or 4 adults traveling on a budget. The sofa bed is not the best, but not the worst. There is no charge for additional guests, so if you're on a budget and happy to sleep on a sofa bed we are happy to have you. I would think carefully about having 4 adults. It all depends on your expectations. If you realise the space is quite small and happy to make do to save a little money- we are happy to have you.
The Casablanca Domes are a truly iconic landmark along the Trinity Beach Esplanade. Built in the late 70's using the Bini System, they offer a completely unique experience from your typical hotel stay. You won't find anything else like it in the Cairns area!
Free parking, free Wi-Fi, pool, on site coin operated laundry, BBQ grills at beach just opposite units. Host is available at all times for any help or advice you may need during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
We interact with guests as much or as little as the guest would like. Although we do not live near the unit, we are always available to guests by phone or email. If there is anything you need whether its advice on a restaurant or local attraction- we are happy to offer suggestions. We feel that one of the best incentives to book using Airbnb is the personal contact between guest and host. We have happily shared a drink or two with guests, but are not offended at all if you are here to relax and be on your own.
Trinity Beach is a tranquil Seaside community with excellent restaurants within walking distance.
A car is highly recommended, but public transport is easily accessible if you are happy to allow for extra travel time. Pick ups by most of the tour operations can also be arranged. There is a car hire within walking distance should you only need a car for 1 or 2 days during your stay.
Relax and enjoy, but please be respectful of our neighbors. This is not the place for you if you are into loud music and late nights. No smoking in the unit, but you are welcome to smoke on the private outdoor patio.
Igloo # 5 was perfect for a quiet few days away from it all! The unit is opposite the beach, perfect for a barefoot walk over with a cuppa tea to relax and check out the view. The igloo was spotless, and very cosy with tasteful beach'y décor. The little kitchen was great to save a bit of money, and there are a few cafes/restaurants literally down the road when you can't be bothered to cook. Desiree was a very helpful host, answering all my questions and offering suggestions. Overall, I had a lovely, relaxing break in a unique accommodation right by the beach :)
We are so happy with our stay in Desiree's and Mike cozy and comfortable igloo. We had a wonderful time in Trinity beach!
The igloo is perfectly situated right across the street from the beautiful beach. Everything was very clean and tidy.
Desiree was also very helpful and gave us excellent information and recommendations for trips etc.
We wish we could have stayed longer!
All the best, Sara, Jakob & Hanna
The Igloo went above and beyond my expectation. I absolutely adored everything about it. It was the perfect location, the decor was adorable, it was steps away from the beach, and walking distance from resturants. I could hear the ocean from the bedroom. It was so delightful. I was traveling alone and I felt perfectly safe. I went on two tours and they both came to pick me up from the Trinity Beach Bus stop which was only a 5 minute walk from the Igloo. Few things in life are perfect, but I can honestly say that the Igloo by the Sea came close!!
I would highly recommend the igloo by the sea!! My daughter & I had a great time while we stayed there. It's in a perfect location right across from the beach & walking distance to the restaurants & cafes. The area is absolutely beautiful with many places to go sightseeing close by. The igloo is very comfortable & Desiree has thought of everything you could possibly need while staying in the igloo & also checked in occasionally to see if you needed anything which was a really nice touch. Would definitely go back!!!!!!

About the Host, Desiree
In the last few years I have gone from a world traveling, single, Flight Attendant to a married, stay-at-home Mom. I love my new life, but traveling is such a big part of me. My adventures are geographically limited a bit now, so I am hoping to bring the traveling world to me for a while. In my experience, the places I have been have always come second to the people I met while being there.
I am an American who grew up near New Orleans in a family that loves to entertain and where life is all about friends,family and having a great time. Although I live in Australia now, I am still "Southern" to the core and a stay with us will surely inspire a little "Southern Hospitality".
My favorite saying is.... "Life's journey is not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body, but to skid in sideways shouting 'HOLY SHIT! WHAT A RIDE!'" That pretty much sums me up. Come for a visit and " Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
