This is a clean, quiet and relaxed home with a lovely ambience. Spacious rooms and a large deck overlook a beautiful rainforest garden and there is a hammock and lounge to relax on.
The house is situated in a safe, well established neighbourhood on the southside of Cairns 10-15 mins drive from Cairns CBD and Marina. There is also a bus stop 7 mins walk away with buses available to the city. The driveway provides off road parking for hire cars. There is also a good 30 minute walk up the hill for those that would like some exercise in the morning - you can see Green Island from the top!
The house has 2 spacious bedrooms, an open plan lounge area, one toilet and a separate bathroom. The bedrooms have arched doorways and are separated from the main area by thick curtains. Each room has a very comfortable queensize bed and sleeps 2.
A large fully equipped kitchen with electric oven, gas top, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine and fridge is available for guests to use. Most guests like to eat outside on the verandah overlooking the rainforest garden. A bbq/grill is also available.
This home is unique, surrounded by tall, magnificent trees. Birds and butterflies are abundant here. It makes a great base for those wanting to explore the Tablelands, Cape Tribulation and beaches. Birdwatchers will also love the variety of birds here.
Free highspeed NBN wifi included & towels & linen.

Originally from the UK, I have lived in Cairns for 24 years and was involved in tourism for 15 years so am happy to give you ideas for your stay here. Since then I have started my own Reiki business and do treatments, facilitate Courses and instruct people in meditation. Recently I completed my Yoga Teacher training so if you'd like to learn some I'm happy to share.
I love hosting people from overseas and thought Airbnb would be a great opportunity to do more of this.
My passion is travel both overseas and around the local area. I enjoy reading a good book, yoga and getting together with friends. I also enjoy good food, relaxation music and conversation.
My motto in life is BE HAPPY and make the most out of every day.
