A totally self contained fully furnished unit with your own living room, kitchen, queen size bed, bathroom and laundry. Great for those who love their privacy! Complete with all modern fixtures including TV, microwave, electric stove.
Our home is situated at the end of a quiet close. The unit is located downstairs so you can come and go as you please. At the moment the unit is perfect for a couple as there is only the queen sized bed, however if there is an extra guest/s and you don't mind sharing the space, we have an extra mattress and bedding available.
The space is fully airconditioned. There is a large kitchen with Mango wood benchtops, all utensils, crockery and appliances including electric stove, fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster. The living area has a new lounge, large television and there is free wifi access. Outside there is a small patio with table and chairs. There is also a combined bathroom and laundry within the unit!
We can interact with you as much as you prefer. If you like your privacy and to be independent you're free to come and go as you please without us disturbing you or vice versa.
On the other hand if you need help or advice with finding your way around Cairns and North Queensland, I am happy to help in as many ways as possible whenever I can. We don't mind picking you up and dropping you back to the airport if time permits as it's only 5 minutes drive from our house. I have a wealth of knowledge about the local area and can recommend the best restaurants and many local attractions including some less known special attractions that one comes to know about growing up in this beautiful area.
For a short or long stay in Cairns I think it is best to have a car and there are a great number of car hire offices for any budget. By car we are about 7 minutes drive from the city centre. There is parking on the street right outside our house.
Alternatively there is a bus stop just five minutes walk away with buses leaving to the centre of town every 30 minutes until 9:30pm and returning until 11pm. From there, you can take other buses to the northern beaches or get straight on a boat to the Great Barrier Reef. Many tour companies will also pick you up from your doorstep.
When myself or my wife Freda have time, we don't mind giving you a lift!
A taxi fare into town is about $15.
There is no smoking in the unit however feel free to smoke out on the patio.
