I'm from Sydney but I've lived in Carins, Albury, Brisbane and even Hong Kong!
I'm a programmer and because of my computer literacy I am helping my mother rent out her holiday house!
My friends and I, 2 couples, stayed here for 5 nights, and we all really enjoyed our stay. Great for entertaining, the home is very spacious, comfortable and clean. The pool is very nice and good fun. The kitchen is large and well equipped, and it's great to have your meals as you overlook the rainforest and beach. The location is a little bit outside of town though, and it takes approximately around 25 min to go to cairns or 50 min to port Douglas. This didn't bother us though, as the house became our sanctuary. I definitely recommend staying here as long driving a little ways isn't an issue.
We enjoy our stay at James' house: The house has spectacular view! It has several spacious rooms, all are well beautiflly decorated. All facilities including the kitchenwares, bath towels, shampoo and etc., even the electic torch are well prepared. The neighbour and the gardener are so kind and helpful! They helped us a lot during our stay. It is an ideal holiday accomodation place for families with several kids! I would strongly recommend his home to other friends!
The Blue Canopy is even more breath-taking than the pictures. The living space is large & welcoming, the beds are comfortable, most have full baths attached, the setting is quiet and after a hot day the pool is a much, welcomed treat.
The only draw back to the Blue Canopy is all the steps, which on a positive note will definitely help to get (or keep) you in shape.
The five of us who stayed here all HIGHLY recommend it and would DEFINITELY stay here again.
