The space
Welcome!

The Room

Your room overlooks a beautiful rainforest garden. There is a large deck to relax on when you’re not exploring.

The house is situated in a safe, well established neighbourhood on the southside of Cairns 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 cars.

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. The guest room room has a very comfortable queensize bed and sleeps 2.

A large fully equipped kitchen with electric oven, gas top, microwave, coffee machine and fridge is available for guests to use. Most guests like to eat outside on the verandah overlooking the rainforest garden. There is also a bbq/grill if you like to cook outside. I ask that you please clean up after yourselves.

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.

There are some lovely walks nearby.

Yoga, Meditation & Reiki

Reiki treatments , yoga & meditation classes are available.

Tours & Reef Trips

I love hosting people and am happy to help you plan your trip. For years I worked in travel in Cairns so can give you advice on where to go and where to get discounts on trips. I also offer personalized tours for guests to the Tablelands and Cape Tribulation.

Towels and linen are provided. Free Wifi is available.

Continental breakfast

I look forward to hearing from you. Julie

The house is not suitable for pets or young children.

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use all areas of the house inside and outside. With the common areas, kitchen, bathroom etc I do ask that guests leave these clean and tidy after use. Thank you.

Other things to note
Occassionally I rent both rooms out to other guests especially in the busy season. I find this works really well and guests enjoy meeting other travellers and can make new friends..

I love the fact I live in such a quiet, safe and beautiful tropical neighbourhood relatively close to Cairns city. It's friendly and private at the same time

Originally from the UK, I have lived in Cairns for 25 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.
