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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I am totally in love with this igloo! It's sooo cute and cosy that I would spend here my entire life ))) Desiree is a wonderful guest! The location is perfect, it's close to the beach and restaurants. The igloo is well equipped and thought out. I would stay here again for sure!!! AAAAAA+++++

  • The place was fantastic! Super cute and very functional. Great clean beach very close to the place. Desiree was prompt and gave us great info about the area. I would highly recommend this place to others.

  • We stayed in the Igloos for 9 days in February 2014. My husband and I were in Igloo #5. My sister and her husband were in Igloo #6. Desiree was a great hostess. She was responsive in answering my questions prior to the trip, greeted us when we arrived, and checked-in with us a couple times (via email- we had no cell phones) during our stay to confirm that we had everything we needed.

    We felt very comfortable at the Igloos. The units are well decorated and well maintained. The kitchens are complete with all the appliances, dishes and kitchenware we needed. We often made our own meals and the 4 of us would dine in either of the Igloo patios. I'd made the vacation arrangements for the group and we all were delighted with the Igloos, their proximity to the beach and the town of Trinity Beach.

  • I highly recommend Igloo-by-the-sea! My partner and I had a wonderful time and will definitely stay here again. The igloo is in a great location, it's clean and cosy and comes with all amenities you may need. The beach towels were greatly appreciated as we had forgotten ours. The pool is right outside the front door and there is a lovely back area to sit and have nibbles at the end of the day. The wi-fi is also appreciated along with the air con. I just wish we were able to stay longer. Thanks again to Desiree. She is great with communication from the start to the end of your visit. We can't wait to go back.

  • Wow! I loved so much this Igloo - comfortable and fully equipped of everything..everything..like your own place. I wished I could have arranged my itinerary in a different way to stay here longer. Desiree was so nice and made fluent our communication prior and upon check-in. Trinity beach is also a nice area for long morning walks or jogging as well as a spot where you can have a drink to the accompaniment of the quiet lapping of the waves.

  • This was an ideal beach house for us and amazing location! Desiree provides everything that you would need to stay at the beach. Every little detail. The décor is adorable and modern, everything was extremely clean. And it is about 25 steps to the beach - right across the street! Perfect for our morning swims. Great little bars and restaurants all around that you can walk to. Great place, great host!

  • Heidi and I had a great, relaxing stay at Igloo By The Sea. A great location across from the Trinity Beach (swimming area) and near restaurants. We loved the walks along the beach, getting ice cream at the local IGA, and watching families with their pets strolling by us. We would recommend this B&B to anyone wanting a stay in Cairns. We were able to get around without a car for our 4 day stay by using public transportation (bus, airport shuttle, and taxi). Desiree provided a wonderful stay even though she was not able to see us. She kept in contact via email and made sure we were at ease.

  • This was our first airbnb experience we spent 3 weeks here and gotta say "WOW". The igloo was just like the pictures and more. Desiree and Mike are absolutely wonderful. They made us feel so welcomed. The igloo had everything you need to be comfortable with plenty of cooking utensils, towels and linen. Desiree makes sure you have everything that you need, including providing a bar-b-que to help with our cooking endeavors. There was even a soap, shampoo and conditioner dispenser in the shower. The internet was really fast too. All the neighbors were so nice. And the beach was right across the street. What more could you ask for. If you want to catch the bus to go to Cairns, the bus stop is only 6 minutes away, and there is a mango tree right in front of the bus stop. Trinity Beach is a wonderful place with several local restraunts, a nice swimming beach with good hiking trails. We really enjoyed our stay and hope one day to return. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

  • Our time at the igloo by the sea was great! It had a great location on a beautiful beach and was close to Cairns and the Daintree rainforest. The wifi was fast, the cleanliness was exceptional, and Desiree was a great resource for helping with activities to do. She recommended the Seastar for our trip out on the Great Barrier Reef and it was excellent!! I'd come back to the igloo in a heartbeat.

  • Desiree's lovely igloo really is exceptional value. Beautifully appointed and decorated, immaculately clean, perfectly located (the beach is just across the road, cafes and restaurants a short stroll away, bus stop to the city is a 10 minute walk, bike path to Kewarra Beach not far away.....) and a very relaxing place to come back to after a day seeing the sights around Cairns. The neighbours were also very friendly. Although we only saw Desiree once, she made it very clear that she was nearby and available if we needed anything. All in all, just a fantastic place to stay.

Flight Attendant for United Airlines
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!"
