About this listing

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.

About the Host, Desiree
Hi! I'm Desiree Gebler and my husband Michael and I have loved being Airbnb hosts in Cairns, Queensland for the past 3 years. We started hosting from a granny flat in our previous home and went on to purchase 2 holiday rentals for the sole purpose of catering to the Airbnb community. We are so proud of our Superhost status and hope that all the reviews reflect that this is far more than an income stream for us. We truly love meeting all the guests from around the world. Many have come to be life long friends.
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!"
