We call our guesthouse “the pondy". It’s a luxurious 1 bedroom, very private and fully self contained retreat set into the hillside amongst the trees and lush tropical gardens. You are 100m from the Botanical gardens and Tanks Art Centre; a 3 minute walk to the village of Edgehill with its many cafes and shops; a 10 minute drive to the city of Cairns and 10 minutes to the beach. The perfect rainforest retreat, secluded and peaceful with beautiful views. Enjoy the outdoor spa!

Fantastic place for a couple—great view, hot tub on a timer, double shower. There are many steps from the road up to the house, but the views were worth it. We loved being able to walk to the Botanic Gardens.

Nardines place was such a lovely place to stay! As we had hired a car it was nice to stay out of the busy town, but only a short drive away. The place had such a homely feel and we loved the outdoor "lounge room", such a nice place to sit and read a book or watch the sunset and…

I am a professional person who loves travel and going to concerts. I am a great guest as I respect other people's property, treating it like my own. I am just about to start hosting and am very excited to share my lovely guesthouse.
