Centrally located with a beautiful view. You're close to everything you'd want to do in town. Darrell was incredibly helpful during our time in Cairns. I e-mailed him a question and he responded in minutes. I really appreciated how attentive he was. I would definitely come back.

An excellent place to stay. Very comfortable and clean, in a prime location for everything you would want to do in and around Cairns. The host was extremely helpful and very unambiguous in how, when and where to setup trips and everything you'll need to know about the unit. Very smooth and easy trip. -ANT

The apartment is a great location and close to everything, but it's really not as bright or upscale as it looks in photos. It feels fairly basic and had some cleanliness issues. Otherwise a fine accommodation tho.

I am a retired China/Korea Librarian from the Australian National University in Canberra and an accredited Chinese (mandarin) interpreter/translator. I love travel and the outdoors, seeing new places, meeting new people and experiencing the best in life. Love tropical North Queensland where my AirBnB property is situated and love helping guests discover and enjoy this unique part of the world just as much as I have myself.
