Igloo by the sea is a truly unique accommodation only steps from one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cairns area. Conveniently located with easy access to all local attractions.
If this unit is booked check out our friends at "Frangipani Sea View".
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, 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 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.
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!!!!!!
Was extremely above our expectations! Actually it was one of the rarest cases when a listing that looked good online happened to be even so much better in reality! The Igloo is perfectly located right across the road from the beach and swimming enclosure, with cafe at its doorstep, less than 5 minutes walk to the bus stop. There is a communal shaded pool right next to it. The appartment is beautifully furbished and so fully - abundantly! - equipped we literally had everything even though we arrived only with our toothbrushes! Absolutely charmed and will definitely stay again.
Won-der-ful. I don't even know where to start. The igloo is amazing, directly at the beach, quiet, furnished and decorated with so much care, I immediately felt at home. Trinity beach is a lovely community it was just perfect for.
Desiree is such a great host, she always replied to my messages immediately.
I can warmly recommend this place to anybody. I only wish I could have stayed longer...
Very cute igloo and certainly clean and comfortable.
Desiree is extremely helpful.
Would not hesitate to come back here.
Our stay at Desiree's Igloo by the Sea was great! Desiree was accommodating to our late arrival and we were impressed with everything when we arrived. The Igloo is just as you would expect and more! The location is great, literally right across the street from the beach and ocean. Multiple restaurants are within walking distance. I would recommend this unit to anyone. Thanks so much Desiree!
maybe the cutest place i've ever stayed. very clean, well supplied (even aloe vera gel to soothe my post-snorkle burn!) right across the street from the ocean. basically paradise in igloo form.
The igloo was really comfortable and clean. The furniture is really pretty and we had everything we needed. Desiree was attentive host. I would definitely stay there again:)

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!"
