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!

The space
Cairns is a beautiful holiday destination and our place is located in Cairns best suburb, Edgehill. Edgehill is a unique village with cafes , restuarants and shops just minutes from our doorstep. We are only 10 minutes from the city, the airport or the beach. We are steps away from the botanical gardens, and very close to walking tracks such as the well known red arrow trail. This is an old suburb with huge trees and our guesthouse is located at the back of the property amongst the trees. You won’t feel the tropical heat as much, with the high balcony and large windows making the most of the cool breezes. The balcony ( or even better, sitting in the spa) is the best place to watch the storms roll in.

Guest access
You have the entire guesthouse. It has a private entrance from the road. You are completely separate from the main house. You have a fully equipped kitchen with oven, a double shower, closet and hanging space, and a laundry. There is a 4 person spa on the balcony. We supply toiletries, tea coffee and breakfast.
We do point out that there are a number of stairs.

Other things to note
The guesthouse was built for outdoor living. The lounge is on the balcony. If you’re not a fan of outdoor living, this property won’t appeal to you. Unfortunately there are mosquitoes at certain times of the year. We do supply mozzie coils and spray. There are also lots of frogs and butterflies, geckos and moths.,Noise does carry as you are up high so you will hear the odd plane and ambulances. You won’t hear any traffic, only the birds! Please do note, There are about 25 steps but the view is worth it. We will help with luggage if required. Also please use your phone light at night as although there are sensor lights on the stairs, you do still need a torch. We supply one torch as well.
Unfortunately the guesthouse is not suitable for young children, only ( non mobile) babies. The guesthouse is high set and although the balcony is fenced, an active toddler may be able to climb over. Also there are 2 open unfenced ponds at least 50cm deep.

Location

Edge Hill, Queensland, Australia

Even those who don’t live in edgehill will admit it’s pretty special. It is unique in that it is a village with shops, cafes and professional services. It’s also where the botanical gardens are located, along with various well known walking tracks, lakes, parkland, gardens and playgrounds on your doorstep. Markets are held once a month. There are regular outdoor music events and an outdoor cinema, all about a 3 minute stroll from our house. The tanks arts and crafts centre is 5 minutes walk which showcases art displays and live bands. Our place is in the middle, botanical gardens on one side and the village on the other. Although we are just metres from the gardens entrance, as we are set back one street from the Main Street of Collins avenue, we only get local traffic so it’s very quiet.

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.
During your stay
We now have a self checkin and house manual to show you how things work. We do enjoy meeting our guests and are happy to tell you the best bits of Edgehill and Cairns if you like. However we understand the importance of privacy and so we wont disturb you unless you need us. When we have guests we close off the back of the house, to give you extra privacy. Please don’t hesitate to message if you have any queries.
