Nice and tucked away, you will need a car to get around. Very friendly hosts. External deck area is not finished yet, so no private outside area (work can only be done when guests aren’t there I would think). Though hosts offered for us to join them for a family BBQ which was …

Great space for a family! Evelyn and family are very friendly and their dog Rocky is so gentle and was great with our baby. Very clean and a quiet neighbourhood.

Thanks for your kind words and review. We always do our best to assist our visitors and make them feel comfortable. I was very pleased that our newly purchased baby cot was used by Jordy and that he slept well. Everyone loves our dog. He loves guests attention and pats. You have a great family and your always welcome to come again. Rod and Evelyn

Huge downstairs apartment, loved being a little bit out in the countryside - the outskirts of Cairns, even if it was a little further than we'd envisaged. We had a rental car so no problem. Wonderful hosts live upstairs and help with anything that they can - marvellous! Rocky the…

Hi Alan and Family. Thanks for Fantastic Review. Pleased you love our Dog as much as we do. Air BNB has softened him up with everyone's pats. He use to be a great guard dog too but now sits and expects a pat due to guests constant attention. pleased you like our fruit provided and its a pleasure to meet your family.

Thanks for your glowing review Mel. Glad you liked us as your tour guides. You sure had me running around. It was fun! We had a great time at Lake Morris, BBQ in the park, sharing meals together, coffee works museum, 4WDing, Swimming in the crystal cascades, seeing local aboriginal cave paintings, scare trees, Barron falls in flood and getting to know you. It was a pleasure spending time with Micheal, Ninia and yourself. Im exhausted but all the more happier to meet you guys.

We were on a work trip so weren't able to take full advantage of the location but when we needed assistance ( a head torch for example at last minute) Evelyn happily lent us one. Internet was wonderfully quick as promised. If coming back with my family I would likely stay again

Response from Evelyn & Rodney:
No trouble Paul. We enjoy assisting our guests with what ever we can. Your lucky i received a brand new head torch for Christmas. Since you used us on a business trip i'm pleased you enjoyed our Super fast NBN internet connection. You were the first guests to use it, it costs us a fair bit to connect but think it offers a better service to our guests.
