  • Ardyn's place is lovely and casual with a resort style atmosphere. All our needs were met, and nothing was to much trouble for Ardyn. The pool was great to enjoy and I found the outside shower, which situated on the deck, wonderful to pop under when you are feeling sticky from the heat. A lovely stay was had

  • I stayed at Ardyn’s place with my dog, only for a few days but I would highly recommened it for all those who want to have easy access to a beautful, pet friendly Holloway’s Beach (only 50m), local coffee bars, as well as Northern part of Cairns and further Palm Cove and Port Douglas. Ardyn’s place was stylish, relaxing and the host herself was easygoing and very helpful.

    Adrian2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ardyn's Funky Beach Retreat is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The beach is not even a minutes walk from the accommodation and Holloways is a lovely place to stay. Ardyn made us feel really welcome and at home, she's a great host. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    Jessie2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great adventure, special and unique place, very peaceful. Close to the city, about 10 minutes from everything, plenty of maps and guides for the area are available in the place. Definitely recommended!

  • Ardyn's place is beautifully set up, with a gorgeous pool and only minutes away from the beach. We had the pleasure of meeting the family and really enjoyed the homely stay. Could not recommend more

    Cozy accomodation literally few steps away from the beach. Very nice and relaxing backyard with swimming pool. Quite area that makes you enjoy the nature. You will share the home with me, Valentina, originally from Italy, my husband Michael from Gold Coast, Australia and our "boss" Mia, 3 year old daughter. To welcome you, there will also be our 2 friendly dogs, Tango and Regina. If you decide to spend your time over here, you definitely won't regret it and we'll be happy to host you :-)
    Your accomodation will be a private room with a queen size bed, air conditioning, fan, desk and closet. Kids are admitted if able to share the queen size bed with you or we have a “camping” mattress to put on the floor if you really want it (we don’t usually offer it but if somebody request it will be happy to provide it) We will provide towels, beach towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. You can have access to the common areas like kitchen, living room, bathroom, outdoor area and pool. Wi-fi is included.

    Being close to the beach makes this area so amazing and relaxing. Nothing like get up early in the morning to go for a walk on the infinite beach across the road. Our area is very quite all day long, most of the time. We are in a dead-end street and don't get any traffic.

  • Valentina and her family are really nice and helpful people. Little Mia is cute and adorable. We really had great time in Cairns!

    Ivana2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Valentina was one of the most kindest and the friendliest host I’ve ever met. She made sure all of requests were met even if it was last minute. We had to checkin because of an early morning flight she made sure our place was ready when we got there. They have a beautiful home right next to the beach, short drive away from cairn city centre and an hour away from port Douglas. They also have a beautiful backyard with a swimming pool, if you’re tired after a long day it’s a wonderful spot to wind down.

    Sainath2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is very quiet and almost on the beach with a swimming network You can park right in front of the door The two dogs are very nice and calm Valentina and Michael are so nice and helpful you feel at home The daughter is very sweet and bright The house is clean and very well equipped The pool is fantastic WiFi was also very good Air conditioning great We would go back anytime

  • The location is perfect, everything is clean, the sounds are lovely, and swimming in the netted area 50m away at sunrise was my favourite 😊 Would confidently recommend if you're looking for a place that's private, closer to nature yet comfortable and not isolated. Overall, beautiful.

    Marina2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Do yourself a favour if your looking for an Airbnb in Cairns you would be mad not staying at Drift Beach House in Holloway’s Beach🌿 Go on and check out the photos they are beautiful but they don’t do it justice. We LOVED our stay and we have stayed in many wonderful Airbnb’s in Europe so we aren’t first timers ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Just amazing Tracey & Darren Tomlinson

  • We had an absolutely fabulous stay at Moti’s in Machans Beach. The decor is lovely. Moti has gone above and beyond in terms of amenities - seriously it’s all there— even travel adapter plugs. The whole place is spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed swimming in the pool. Our sole regret is not being able to stay for longer. Moti was lovely and we really enjoyed chatting with him. The location is about 10 min north of Cairns which was not an issue at all - this Airbnb is a gem and well worth the stay. Can’t wait to return.

    Elyse2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place to stay with everything a family would need. Beautifully furnished, clean and so tranquil. Six out of five stars!

    Katie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place about 15min north of downtown Cairns and even closer to the airport. My friend and I enjoyed each having our own room and the kitchen to use for coffee and snacks. Parking on the street was super easy; I’d HIGHLY recommend getting a rental car, as you’re a drive to best beaches/sights/food. Moti was very welcoming. *Note you will find occasion bugs inside (i.e. roaches, crickets and large spiders) which sneak in through cracks or the window panes in the bathroom. - would come back!

    Sheila2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing and so relaxing esp after a day out!

    Kez2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, great space, great host - will definitely stay here again!

    Samantha2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Moti’s place was lovely. It was comfortable, had everything we needed, plus more. We loved the pool and the design of the space. Moti was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The property is in a very nice location convenient to Cairns but quite and peaceful. Stay here you’ll love it.

    Sandy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place to stay when visiting cairns. Stylish, sparkling clean place and Moti is very friendly and has great local tips. Highly recommend staying here!

    Rosemary2020-02-04T00:00:00Z

We highly recommend the property and would go back anytime.

    Enjoy a unique beach styled bungalow surrounded by stunning rainforest trees and exotic palms. Eco-friendly, creative, light and spacious, opening onto a secluded garden courtyard at the base of a giant rainforest pine. Indoor/outdoor bathroom. Butterflies and birdsong. It's located in a lovely beach village close to Cairns and a short walk to the beach.
    Situated in a rainforest garden under the canopy of giant rainforest trees which are inhabited by lots of exotic birds. A unique and attractive beach styled bungalow, it has a creative, natural and peaceful ambience apealing to those who love living close to nature. It is private and fully self contained offering a lovely tropical getaway holiday experience. The main bedroom provides a quality comfortable Q/S bed furnished with pure cotton bedding. The windows beside the bed open onto the courtyard and to view tropical palms and giant rainforest trees against the beautiful blue of the sky. There is a daybed which offers comfortable additional sleeping and provision for a 4th person can also be arranged. * Bath towels and beach towels are provided. There are plenty of drawers and a large walk in cupboard for you to unpack your things. The kitchen/dining area is separate from the bedroom and is fully equipped with a fridge, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, cook top, microwave and everything you need to prepare fresh and wholesome holiday meals. The courtyard, at the base of a giant rainforest Milky Pine, is furnished with an outdoor dining setting inviting unique tropical dining during the morning, day, or under the stars and the moonlight at night. The accommodation offers its own tropical indoor/outdoor bathing which is accessed just outside your door and across the private little courtyard. To shower (with hot and cold water) looking out into the rainforest is a wonderful option to a conventional bathroom and a uniquely tropical experience! Butterflies and sun birds play amongst the flowers and in the rainforest canopy which with a sea breeze, keeps the accommodation pleasantly cool and comfortable all year round. The tropical garden canopy also offers a cool retreat and fans provide any extra breeze that may be required. * Air conditioning is only available in the hotter summer months of December to March/April Rainbow lorikeets, sulphur crested cockatoos, black cocatoos, kookaburras and the Torres Straight pigeons are just some of the many birds you may enjoy as they play and feed in the overhead canopy.
    Machans beach is an attractive and friendly coastal village situated 15 minutes north of Cairns, nestled in behind the cane fields. It has been untouched by commercial tourism and retains much of north Queensland's original charm. Very safe, it is lovely to walk everywhere, especially early mornings and evenings along the Esplanade which is fringed with coconut palms. A walk through the shaded 'Dungarra' Nature Reserve is lovely and highly regarded by bird watching groups viewing over 130 different species - including the colourful Paradise Kingfisher. The nearby river is a popular fishing place with many Aboriginal and Islanders net fishing ....also for sand pipers and sometimes the pelicans! There is a waterfront restaurant and bar for evening meals which is in easy walking distance. The restaurant/bar entertains 'happy hour' between 4-6 pm while the sun sets and the birds fly home across the ocean horizon. There is an early morning / day time cafe (7am- 3 pm), a general store, post office, and fuel station - all are open every day.
  • Would want to say thanks to annie for being a great hostess, going above and beyond!! Helping with booking boat trip and little tips on things to do and skin care, major thanks for the thoughtful little gift for my partners birthday. Annie was very informative about the local area and when to go to certain activities. Felt like a home away from home.

    Robert2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and unique place to stay! Definitely would want to stay here again the next time we are in town!!!

    Shawn2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. Annie was a fantastic and very helpful host. She booked an amazing tour for us of the GBR and had lots of wonderful advice on what to see and do on our last few days in Australia. The Airbnb has a very calm outdoorsy vibe to it, which we loved. We even found a cute tree frog in our outdoor shower one night and saw a few geckos in our room, which were all part of the “where the forest meets the ocean” experience. As we didn’t have a car, we used public transportation to get into Cairns and to visit Palm Cove (to the north). The bus stop is very conveniently located, only a two minute walk away. Even the bus drivers were very helpful, making sure we got off at the right location. There is a great pub nearby but it closes early and it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (at least when we were there) so you will have to plan accordingly.

    Dana2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment. Annie is adorable and will give you the best advice of activities to do in the area. I will return without hesitation

    Jonathan2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely little spot to chill out for the afternoon & get a good night's sleep before an early morning flight. We only stayed one night but would love to have stayed longer! Everything you need for a comfy stay, an easy walk to the local pub for delicious food by the water & the outdoor shower is just perfect for the warmer climate, loved cooling down after a long day. We all (4) slept well in the comfy beds, really peaceful & quiet.

    Margot2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the reception, it was great!! We really enjoyed our stay and would come again. You are a great host!

    Felipe2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Annie's place is your perfect beach home with thoughtful touches , sparkling cleanliness and amazing hospitality. She also helped us book best reef tour and sky dive at great rates. 03 of us travelled to Cairns and Clearly one of our best Airbnb stays till date. Bank on Annie for every adventure you may seek in Cairns :) . Thanks Annie.

    Vivek2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • It was super-lovely staying at Annie's place. We loved the chats and the great tips she gave us for what to do in the area. Most loved feature was the outdoor bathroom under the tropical trees!

Housed within the laundry, both a shower and toilet is perfect to wash the sand and salt off you from the beach and for use when wet from the pool.
    Holloways Beach is the second beach suburb just north of the city and Cairns Airport. Approx 10 - 15 min drive from the city centre. A stunning sandy beach which boasts the most gorgeous sunrise views.
  • It’s really a nice house. Quiet and very relaxing atmosphere. Full kitchen equipment and ingredients. They have everything you would need, very thoughtful host they are. Check in is simple and easy. Beautiful swimming pool. We really enjoyed our time there. Thank you Rachel & Kevin for letting us stay at your house.

  • Great location. Conveniently located to food, bottle shops, beach, etc. awesome porch

  • Great space to relax with family and friends.

    Karl2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location: walking distance to beach, multiple restaurants, and bottle-o.

    Charles2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved that there were basic supplies in the pantry which was really helpful. It was great for 7 people and we loved the pool and the huge outdoor area so much. Especially because We didn’t realise that Cairns beaches were pretty much a no go for swimming (crocodiles) but they are pretty to look at and walk along. The Holloway’s Beach foreshore parks are gorgeous and so nicely maintained. The two bathrooms were really handy for 7 of us and the outdoor one which is combined with the laundry is just a couple of steps from the kitchen so easy to use day and night. Rachel replies to email virtually immediately and was so helpful and friendly. She is the perfect host and made our stay so delightful and easy.

    Donna2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • A great house with a great location - minutes ealk to fantastic cafe and pizza and local store and beach 1 block away. We had a great stay. House was clean, loved the pool and the open living. Kevin and Rachel are great hosts with great communication and quick responding.

    Emma2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning cottage. We were completely blown away by the property. Incredible value for a family/friends stay in the Cairns region.

    Aidan2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a fine beachside cottage, very conveniently located for travellers. Accommodation is very spacious and clean. There is also great social space - both a big pool and eating space.

    Holloways Beach is a friendly and quiet neighbourhood. You can take a relaxing walk along the beach and have a coffee at our local famous Strait on the Beach Restaurant, or the best take away at our local Bamboo Shack (friendly owners first hand with their customers)

    Maher Joseph2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita's place is beautiful, peaceful, and a perfect place to relax in Holloways Beach with a private piece of beach and a swimming pool. The spacious studio was perfectly clean, fully equiped with all you need, air conditioning, beach towels, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, water for entire week... Bonita was a wonderful host and made us feel like home. We wouldn't change a thing. Thank you very much!

    Réda2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly like the pictures--this is a beautiful beachside loft that could fit a large family easily and provided access to the beach all with Bonita and her family's wonderful hospitality. Just 15 minutes from Cairns means it was close enough to go there for dinner but far enough to feel authentic, not touristy, and peaceful away from the bustle of Cairns downtown. The space was spotless upon arrival and host immediately available to help. Would return again, thanks!

    Stephanie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita’s place is amazing! The location is great (between Cairns cbd and Palm Cove, 15-20min drive). The house is located right next to the beach, in a very lovely neighborhood. The studio ha/ everything a traveller needs. It has a very nice balcony with amazing view and an ocean breeze is blowing 24/7. We had dinner and breakfast there and it was much better than any fancy restaurant view! But the real perks of this place is the host themselves! Bonita and Roni are amazing, super friendly people. We even got invited to their nye party! Bonita really went out of her way as a host. We had our laundry done but when we went down to pick it up, our laundry was already in the dryer. Next time we came down to pick the fresh laundry up, everything was already nicely folded! If we are coming to Cairns, we are definitely staying at Bonita’s place again!

    Milan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed in. From the moment you get there, you’re greeted into their home, while all the time feeling safe, welcomed, and taken care of. I highly recommend Bonita’s place to anyone visiting Cairns or the surrounding area.

    Austin2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita was great. She fulfilled our wishes and was very hospitable. It was great. The accommodation is clean and well furnished. We felt totally comfortable. We can recommend it to everyone.

    Sarah2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place is fantastic! The pictures don’t do it justice. It is truly paradise. Bonita and her family were so hospitable and made us feel welcomed. They helped us with any questions we had and gave us tips on where to visit. The place is just a few blocks from the bus stop, and just a short ride away from Cairns. There are also some really cute restaurants around as well. Holloway’s Beach is a small town which we greatly appreciated as it took us away from the the busyness of Cairns. What a blessing to fall asleep to the sound of waves. HIGHLY recommend.

    Angelica2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful place right on the beach with tremendous hosts. They couldnt have been more helpful and have literally thought of everything. Can't say enough good things about this one!

    Nicky2019-12-11T00:00:00Z

    Annemarie2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Ideally located behind the local shops,the beach is a short walk away. Shane is a perfect host, friendly and nothing is too much for him, The accommodation is in a quiet neighbourhood, ideal for a few days, with a pool to cool off in,

    Nigel2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We (family with 2 children (8 and 11) really enjoyed our stay at Yorkeys Knob. It was the perfect place to visit the Crystal Cascades and the Kuranda Rainforest (only 7 minutes drive). Port Douglas is a 54 minutes drive. Shane's place is close to the beach and a nice playground. The girls loved to spend time in the swimmingpool in the backyard. Shane is a very friendly host.

    Marcelle2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed out time in Cairns. Shane is a great host-kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. The airbnb was bigger then we expected and the pool was a salt water pool which was pretty awesome. We swam everyday. We even enjoyed a BBQ with Shane and a few of his chums. We would definitely recommend staying at Shane's airbnb.

    A single room with a king-single bed in a charming high-set queenslander house located within minutes of the airport and only a 10 minute drive to the city. I am normally available for airport pickup/drop at no extra charge. The tropical garden is a relaxing place to rest from your travels and there is a pool that you are welcome to use. If you love to walk in the rain forest, access to the 'Arrow' walking tracks is just around the corner. I have an 11 year old staffy x dog with a gentle nature.
    I live a relaxed life style so I consider my home to be your home too while you are here. You are welcome to use the kitchen, living areas and downstairs laundry at any time (no additional charges) . As I live so close to the rain forest, I am occasionally lucky enough to share my home with some cute wildlife - particularly green tree frogs and geckos. If you fear small creatures then this space is probably not going to be suitable for you as I am unable to control when they come and go.
    The neighbourhood is a small residential suburb with mostly older style character homes. A cafe/homeware/plants/books shop has just opened up in an old wooden building next door to my house and is proving to be popular with the locals. It is the only commercial building in the street.
  • Alison is very easy going and enjoys meeting people. Airport pickup and dropoff very handy. Bus stop right outside and most importantly a very quiet room.

    Richard2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fantastic time and relaxed stay at Alison her house. When I arrived in the evening at Cairns Airport, she was so nice to pick me up and prepared a nice meal wich was so welcoming after a long day of travels. Alison is super nice and easy to talk to. Also the dog of her is so cute. I loved spending some chill time at the pool and watching some wild life at the veranda. It s a handy location, super near the airport and the busstop is right across the road from her house wich take you to Cairns central in 10 min. Too bad she was already fully booked except for 2 dates left. Otherwise i woulde stay a little longer :) Thank you Alison for creating a home far away from home...

    Maryanne2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful & peaceful spot that Allison ensures feels like home. She even went out of her way to take me to the airport! I highly recommend this place for recharging your batteries and enjoying the tropical north.

    Meleika2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • As many others reported - the place was lovely, Alison was lovely and most importantly - Flossy was my hero :) She is very sweet. Alison was kind enough to set me up in the A/C room also to keep me nice and cool :)

    Chris2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Alison is really kind. Great location and very thoughtful to bring me to the airport. The stay is worth it.

    Joris2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    Bob2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and great company 👌

    Josiah2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean and comfortable, big dogs are super friendly. The host was friendly and easy going. The disadvantage is that the room is a bit sweltering, there will be mosquitoes at night, and it is not close to the airport, because there needs to be a large circle around the runway. On the contrary, it is not a hassle to go to the urban area. There is a bus stop directly in front of the door.

    Chris2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Christine And Brady2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Jill2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    No need for a car. Close to everything.
  • I really liked it

    Marco2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you're the type to be out and about, and only have the expectation of needing a place to sleep then this will fulfill it. For the price and location it does the job. There is air conditioning, which is great for the hot weather in Cairns. The place is really close to everything and the terminal to the reef. The building is a little outdated and the shared bathrooms does require you to use your key each time you enter it and appears like a public bathroom with the stalls. Since I was out most of the time anyways it did not bother me too much, but do consider if you want a place to recharge during the day and something a bit more comfortable. For me I was satisfied since I prefer to save money so I can have more to play.

    Esther2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful home with gorgeous views and incredible hospitality. Loved having the beach on our doorstep and a private pool

    Elizabeth2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific location.

    Nathan2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house was close to airport and Cairns. The Strait in the Beach Bar cafe very close by was fun on Wednesday night - Ukele Night. The house has everything you need, spices etc. (and more) with a netted swimming area close by (that I didn’t try). I would suggest Diver’s Den for snorkelling out of Port Douglas 8-4:30. It was worth the $250 to snorkel the outer reef and the drive there and the Four mile beach at Port Douglas was beautiful. The Mossman Gorge was a nice hike, little pools for cooling off and beautiful little blue butterflies around the swimming area in the morning. (We hear the Daintree is beautiful).

    Pat2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • We loved being here. The house is right on the beach, but we listened when people told us it was stinger season, and we stayed out! The tide comes up, so if you want to play in the sand, work around this by swimming in the pool until it goes back out. The kitchen had all the essentials. We had a car, and it was easy to get to grocery and sites. There is so much room here, and the kids play area was a super bonus...until my son put legos all over the floor because he set up lego bombs and thinks he's funny. If you are a mom, you know the pain of stepping on a lego. Thank you for a wonderful time. I had no idea how pretty it is here. A forever memory.

    Jen2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This was a spectacular experience. You will find dozens of little touches designed to make your stay more memorable. Everything works, and the venue was absolutely spotless. The location is sublime, pictures do not do it justice. The hosts are absolutely outstanding with their helpfulness, warmth, and kindness. I cannot imagine anyone having anything unpleasant to say about this property or the hosts.

    David2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great communication and easy check-in process, fabulous family-orientated home and space. Walk out the back door directly onto the beach - so much for the kids to enjoy and heaps of space for multiple guests!

    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.
    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.
  • Although we had to shorten our stay because of corona at a short notice, Nardine was very helpful and even refunded us. Thank you again for that! The “pondy” is the perfect stay if you want to have a quiet retreat. Enjoying ourselves in the jacuzzi next to the jungles with a nice view of the nightly Cairns was really amazing! The retreat is clean, quiet and equipped with everything you need during your stay. We definitely recommend Nardine’s “pondy”!

    Carina2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • The Pondy is one of the best places I've ever stayed. Private spa, double shower, close to a great cafe and the botanical gardens, and our host was lovely and responsive. 10/10 would recommend. :)

    Nick2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect air bnb, not a single expense spared, beautifully decorated, so close to the airport, botanical gardens, sky rail and the reef fleet terminal.

    Victoria2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Such lovely accommodation! Located right on the beach with beautiful views and walks. Very close to Cairns CBD but not too close where there are too many people. The house is very spacious and perfect for a group of people. We had 9 people stay there and it was perfect for us.

    Kimberley2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, we didn’t want to leave. It’s just as beautiful as the pictures portray it to be.

    Randall2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Overall great location in a quiet, friendly neighbourhood! Driveway was a tad bit too tiny for our big SUV. Love the Balinese concept

    Marc2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, good beach access 2 doors up, beautiful sunrises and fantastic pool

    Andrew2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • This property is gorgeous with a private pool located about 20 minutes from downtown Cairns by car. The property was very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with all the cooking and baking supplies you would need. The company is very responsive and worked really well with our group. I would recommend this property that is looking to spend time cooking and swimming at the property.

The indoor space is so beautiful and the big open windows and sliding doors allow you to still feel apart of the outdoor space. Matt and Dan are incredible hosts and we loved every second of our time there and hope to make it back to Cairns very soon and back to this beautiful place.

    Maggie2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We loved this property. The gardens and rescued wildlife were great. Short walk to town

    Lou2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • This was one of the nicest, most unique places we have stayed on our many travels. We can’t wait to return to Cairns and stay here again for much longer. Our hosts, the stylish space, the flora and fauna, were all amazing. Come to Cairns and stay here!

    Basil2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay with Matt and Dan. The place is beautiful, like living in a garden. Matt met us and showed us everything we needed to know. Fabulous bed and cool shower! Love, love, loved it!!

    Jan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Totally lived up to the expectations. Great and private space while surrounded by plenty of animals. Dual shower is a very nice touch. Matt and Dan always answered very quickly and showed us around the place when we checked in. Overall, great place.

    Eric2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Matt & Dan have a beautiful place. Our studio was beautifully decorated and very clean. Check was easy and we were welcomed with a friendly introduction. Would definitely recommend staying here

    Paul2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • I’m not really sure where to start... Matt and Dan’s place is pretty much indescribable. The room is decorated to the nines in an old Aussie fashion that kinda takes you back in time, but has all the right modern touches. My husband and I were absolutely enamored with the design because every square inch was so well thought out. Then there is the outdoor space... It is like having your own private botanic gardens all to yourself AND it has a bathtub, animals and a gorgeous fish tank. Every part of the garden is a work of art. The place feels so alive and made us feel totally energized. If we come back to Cairns we will pray Matt and Dan’s place is available! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!!!

    Sam And Stephen2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • After a week diving aboard the Spirit of Freedom, it was quite amazing to unwind in the oasis Matt and Dan have created. Between the luxurious manicured garden, its friendly inhabitants and the attention to details in every aspect of the room, we honestly never wanted to leave. Matt and Dan were welcoming hosts and offered ample recommendations in person and in their thoughtfully curated guide book for their Lily Pad Inn. They were generous and let us do the laundry we had accumulated after a week at sea and let us borrow a few condiments so we could enjoy a relaxing dinner in and cooking in their outdoor kitchen. The bed was one of the most comfortable we have experienced in a while and the private outdoor bathtub provided a much needed calming escape. For the value, I recommend you book Matt and Dan’s place as it will provide you with much more than even the best hits in town (we actually were at the Shangri-La a week before). We will definitely be back!

    Kellie2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! The description is very accurate. The house is very well equipped and has every amenity you might want! The location is perfect. The sea is at your doorstep. The place is also perfect for travelling around to visit all the touristy spots as well. Check in n check out was a breeze. Easiest check in I have had thru airbnb. We had a family of 8 comprising 3 generations and ALL were happy here! Highly recommend to anyone visiting cairns.

    Pc2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, clean and comfortable with wonderful views over the ocean - the cabana is the perfect place to watch the sunrise/sunset. There was plenty of space for all of us (9 adults). Communication and check-in was very easy. We had a wonderful time.

    Single bedroom ideal for the budget traveler. It has a nice comfy double bed and plenty of hanging space. There's a ceiling fan, but NO AIR-CON in the room - but it's next to the lounge that does have air-con. I can also hire you a very nice bicycle for $10 per day. WE HAVE A SMALL CAT ALSO - HE'S VERY FRIENDLY AND PRETTY QUIET
    This is the fourth bedroom in my lovely wooden Queenslander home; located in the centre of the house, so although it has a window (they're French style doors actually), it opens onto another room in the house. So for your privacy I have covered both sides of the windows.
    It's generally a quiet neighbourhood but only a short distance in to Cairns by bus or bicyle. Everything you sould reasonably need is on the doorstep here. I've only recently moved in to the area and I really like it. 'The Village' consists of 24 homes without perimeter fences so there's a real community here that is unique and quite lovely.
  • Very homie vibe! All the roommates are really nice. You feel safe and at home in Ant's place. I was able to cook and use the kitchen with no issue, and the fan in the room is more than enough at night. Loved my stay here and wish I could've extended but it was already booked! If/when I come back, would definitely stay here. Ladies, this is a great place for female solo travelers! Thank you again Ant!!!

    Nathia2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Ant is proper quality host, from start to finish he responded promptly and was very helpful for the duration of my stay. He has a lovely place and it is situated 5mins from the local shopping centre and bus routes to Cairns Central; which is only 20 to 30mins by bus. He was kind enough to drive me about and show me the local sights... All in all, he is a legend!!! Would be more than glad to stay here again!!!

    Satvinder2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • At Ant's house, i could rest enough. If you want to find the room which quiet and feel nature, this house will be a good choice.

    Lau2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ant is a great host. He is be understanding, and It was easy communicating with him. I had a nice stay at Ant’s place.

    Lucy Xiaojia2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • I chose to stay in Ants home, because I love Queenslanders for a start. It certainly was a beautiful home, and very cosy and comfortable. Definitely value for your buck so that was another great reason to stay. I think it doesn't matter where you stay in Cairns, it's not a far drive to anywhere, so the location of Ants home was great. I found Ant to be very friendly and helpful, although I did not see much of him in the days I stayed. Laura, his flatmate was lovely also, we spent some hours in great conversation, so that was cool. So yeah, definitely recommend for a nice chill, friendly and cosy stay.

    Donna2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • Second time I’ve stayed at Ant’s now and would go back again. Feels real homely which is lovely when so far away from home. Super helpful and friendly guy. Thank you so much 😜 Good location.

    Juliette2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Glenn really is a super host! From the outset, he responded to my enquiries promptly and was kind enough to offer me flexibility with my check in and check out times. Toby’s Retreat is a gorgeous unit which is perfectly equipped. I slept perfectly and the shower is great! The garden is beautiful and very private and even though I didn’t use the pool, it did look most inviting! The purpose of my stay was to lay on a beach and do little else! I happy with my choice! The beach itself is about a 15 minute walk from Glenn’s, which takes you past an Italian restaurant, cafe and also a cute cafe/bar right on the beach. I would happily return to Glenn’s place. :-)

    Si2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation was very clean and well equipped. We had a very nice time in the apartment. The additional use of the pool is of course a plus. We would definitely book again.

    Our home is very tidy and welcoming. We want you to feel at home. Please feel free to join in conversation with us or if you wish to be private - that is fine too. We love our location close to bus stops, shops, takeaways, bakery, famous boat club overlooking the spectacular marina. Yorkeys Knob Beach is fantastic to walk along, and has exercise stations and barbques all the way along. Ideal for fishing, outrigger canoeing, stand up panel boarding, kite surfing, golf and having fun!
    Welcome to swim in the pool, chill out on the undercover area overlooking the pool. Welcome to cook in the kitchen. There is space in the fridge also.
    Spectacular Beach is just down the road. 18 hole golf course within walking distance too. World class boat club/ restaurant/bar including courtesy shuttle bus is 15 minutes walk away. Or just chill out by the pool.
  • Great room in a great house with a nice pool. Donna and Graham were really nice people as well.

    Bart2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We have had a great week at Donna’s place! Thanks for everything.

    Marlene2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Donna & Graham’s house for nearly 2 weeks. Then my 3 children came for 5 days. The house smells fresh and clean. The room and bathroom was spotless and fresh too. The pool area is hot as a sauna. Donna and Graham are lovely couple, friendly, cheerful, helpful and a wonderful hosts. We love their dog “Scarlet” like a human, when we say sit she sit. We are very pleased with our choice and we would stay here again if in the area.

    Michael & Norma2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for the night stay I needed after my flight and before heading to daintree early morning. Donna is very nice and welcoming!

    Khushbu2019-11-19T00:00:00Z
  • I was travelling on ny own and visiting Yorkeys Knob for a very specific reason and Donna's place fit that purpose to a tee. Walking distance to the Marina and Yacht Club, the beach and the shopping centre and, on top of all that Donna and Graham were very friendly and very generous in spirit. If I found myself in the same circumstances, I'd definitely stay at Donna's again.

    Glenn2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Donna and Graham were wonderful hosts! Very friendly and sweet. They invited us into their home, as well as their social club. We enjoyed our stay very much. The pool was nice and cold and their dog Scarlet was a wonderful surprise. You’ll love it!

    Samantha2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Yorkey's Knob is one of Cairns' quieter northern beaches, and Donna's place is only a short walk down to the beachfront and local playground area. It's also close to local shops, and a great little restaurant/cafe, and only a short drive from Cairns airport. I was there for a weekend visit and Donna and her partner were both very welcoming, and their dog Scarlett is a sweetheart. The bed was comfortable and although I didn't use the pool their outdoor area is great.

    Maree2019-06-10T00:00:00Z

  • The place is very nice and the house + rooms are very well maintained and clean. Since my air conditioning was not working, I was able to switch to another room immediately without any problems. Nice kitchen for self catering. Breakfast was even available :)! Thank you for a nice stay! Everything perfect!

    Jule2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Angel’s place was a nice suburban place to rest and reorganize. They were kind to accommodate a late evening checkin and let me use some extra space to organize my luggage. It was clean and comfortable, and also close to the cable car to Kuranda. Thanks! -Ramona

    Thomas & Ramona2019-11-12T00:00:00Z

    Sojourn in a lovely townhouse at Holloways Beach. LGBTQI+ friendly, & all ages welcome. As an older home, rooms are larger than average & bedroom has a/c & builtin wardrobes. 2 large living areas (main w/ aircon for summer); front & back courtyard & garden; private outdoor spa; shared pool; & only a 5 min. stroll to the beach! A quiet, friendly area perfect for anyone looking for a laidback holiday - out of the CBD, but still close to all things fun & useful. Free Wifi, Netflix & Stan.
    • The bedroom has air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, a builtin wardrobe, a desk & chair overlooking the back yard, and has a supportive King Single bed (same length as a Queen bed, & wider than a Single bed) with a pillow-topper, as well as 3 pillows & full linens. If an extra guest is staying (maximum total 2 guests), a single sprung mattress will be placed on the floor. • For your comfort & convenience during your stay, you are provided with (pp): 2 bath towels; 2 face-washers; 2 hand/hair towels; a hairdryer; 1 beach towel & SPF50+ sunscreen; shampoo, conditioner, hair oil & body-wash. A double-sided vanity mirror, alarm clock, tissues, desk-lamp, & wastepaper basket are also provided. The wardrobe is well ventilated, & has ample space for your belongings & luggage to be stored - with a long clothes rail, 3 large shelves, a pop-up laundry hamper, & multiple clothing hangers for your personal use. • A simple & nutritious breakfast is provided each morning: Tea & coffee; bread for toast with a selection of spreads (jam, honey, Vegemite, peanut butter, mustard pickles); muesli; & fresh fruit. If you have any dietary requirements please let me know in advance so that I can make sure you are catered for (celiac/lactose intolerant/vegan/nut allergy etc.). A variety of complimentary teas, coffee, & hot chocolate are available for you to enjoy throughout the day. You are welcome to make a sandwich or take an extra piece of fruit (within reason) with you if you are going out for the day exploring Cairns & all it has to offer. The kitchen & all appliances are available for you to use should you wish to cook your own food (there is an extensive spice cupboard that you can use so that you don’t need to purchase unnecessary items during your stay), we just ask that you clean up after yourself & put everything back where you found it. • You’re welcome to eat your meals & relax in the rear courtyard; enjoy a cup of tea or coffee in the front garden; chill out in the living room with Netflix or Stan (we also have a selection of DVDs/BluRays if you can’t find something to watch on the streaming services); or in the sunroom with a book (there is a well-stocked bookshelf & you are free to borrow a book or 2 for the duration of your stay). • It is a shared bathroom with myself, but there is a separate watercloset downstairs. The washing machine & laundry detergent is available for you to use free of charge, I just ask that if you use the dryer to put $2 in the honesty box on top of the washer as the dryer is not very energy efficient. There is a covered clothes line for you to hang your washing on, or a clothes horse if that is your preference. If you’d like to use the outdoor spa you’re more than welcome to - just let me know so that I can give you your privacy & show you how to set it up (otherwise it can just be used for a peaceful bubble bath should you wish). There is a community saltwater pool on the property, but is only shared with 3 other townhouses so you needn’t worry about overcrowding. If the open ocean is more your thing, it’s a quick 5 minute stroll down to the beachfront from the property. There is also a cafe right on the waterfront where you can have breakfast/lunch/dinner, or just enjoy a coffee in the morning or a beer in the afternoon. There are also free BBQs available for use along the Holloways Beach esplanade, along with park benches, a pagoda, and plenty of shady trees to sit under if you want to have a picnic.
    Holloways Beach is a quiet, safe, community-minded neighbourhood. Most people are very friendly & will give you a smile & a nod even if they don’t know you. If you’ve come to relax, then this is the place for you. Holloways Beach is a relatively central location, even for the beaches, so it’s not too far from anything/anywhere you’d like to go. 15 minute drive to the city/CBD; 10 minute drive to a shopping centre at Smithfield; a 5 minute drive to the farmers market in Stratford/Freshwater; and a maximum 20 minute drive to the northern beaches like Palm Cove. There is public transport also available to all these places. There are 4 places to get good food from in Holloways Beach: 1. Holloways Pizza & Pasta (this is a 2 minute walk from the house). You can dine in or get your food to take away. It’s very casual. If you’re up for it, Rick, the owner has a beer challenge: if you can scull/finish your beer before he does, your pizza is free & you get your photo on the wall. So far only 2 people have ever beat him! (Closed Mondays but open from 5pm the rest of the week). They are licensed for BYO & there is a bottleshop around the corner. 2. The Bamboo Snack Shack: this is super casual & is purely takeaway food, although they do have little chairs & tables where you can sit & eat (it’s much nicer to just go down to the beach once you’ve got your food). They do burgers, fish & chips, sandwiches, falafel rolls - your standard fare. They are open during the day until 8.30pm & are closed Tuesdays. This is just around the corner from Holloways Pizza & Pasta. 3. Strait on the Beach: like the name says, it literally is “straight on the beach”. This is a 5 minute walk from the house. Once a month they hold a “Full Moon” dinner which is nice. The rest of the time they provide a similar variety of food to the snack shack, except they have a few more vegetarian options, make milkshakes, smoothies, juices, coffee and are open for breakfast & lunch. This is also a licensed cafe, so you can purchase beer, wine, cider, and spirits/mixed drinks to have while you watch the ocean. Most weekends they have a live band for lunchtime & dinner. Strait on the Beach’s opening hours constantly vary, so it’s best to check the chalkboard outside the cafe to avoid disappointment. 4. Vitalia’s: this is an Italian restaurant a 1 minute walk from the house. They have very good reviews on TripAdvisor (I think they’re currently no.2 for restaurants in Cairns). This is reflected in their pricing of meals. However you can get the full dining experience (including cocktails) here. They are not BYO. Vitalia’s is closed Monday & Tuesday, do dinner from about 5.30pm Wednesday to Friday, and are open on the weekends for lunch & dinner, with them offering breakfast on Sundays. The liquor store and newsagent are a 2 minute walk from the house (right by the Bamboo Snack Shack, & around the corner from Holloways Pizza & Pasta. There is a SPAR/IGA on the Main Street (Oleander St) in Holloways Beach. This is open til 9.30pm each night. In the same space of shops there is another takeaway called “Richard’s Salt & Pepper Takeaway”. They offer curries, and very good salt & pepper squid amongst other things. This is approximately a 15 minute walk from the house. If you need to get a different variety of things, Smithfield Shopping Centre is only a 10 minute drive away. There is a Coles & Woolworths there, as well as a chemist, cinema, more shops, and more restaurants.

  • Phoebe's place is spacious and the free breakfast is a great added touch. Phoebe is so thoughtful. It was fun to have her sweet kittens there too. I would recommend this to someone who is comfortable using public transportation or uber or taxi as it is about 20 minutes north of Cairns city. The bus stop is right around the corner and is very easy to use. The shower was hot. The bed was comfy. The garden is gorgeous! Thanks, Phoebe!

    Brianna2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • You need a car. Not far out of town. Close to unique beach side cafe. A must see. Close to Skytrain. Easy drive to Trinity Beach, Palm Cove, Port Douglas and Karanda. I also drove and then snorkeled at Cape Tribulation and saw the Daintree Rainforest. Cape Tribulation snorkeling is reputed to be the best on the great barrier reef.

    Alan2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Phoebe's place was great to stay at. My room was lovely, clean and well presented. I had a nice desk, large wardrobe and all the niceties (shampoo, conditioner, towels etc.) that I needed for my stay. Each morning I would wake up to a nice spread of breakfast options (various muesli's, toast, jams, peanut butter, numerous teas). Phoebe was always lovely and able to recommend various local activities. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Julian2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Phoebe’s place was great! She had a wonderful breakfast spread, the room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The cats are so cute and friendly! Lots of common space to relax. Phoebe was a really good host and gave recommendations for things to do in Holloways and Cairns. I also mentioned that I was going to Melbourne next and she gave a ton of great recommendations for there as well. Would recommend!

    Shona2019-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Phoebe is host well deserving of her super host status! The place was easy to find and easily accessible from Cairns CBD using public transport. Phoebe was very helpful with any queries I had prior arrival herself and partner, Jarrod were delightfully accommodating and made me feel right at home! The gorgeous cats they have are an absolute bonus!!

    Kat2019-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Phoebe and Jarrod! I'm so glad I got to stay with you! You made me feel welcome since day one, and I enjoyed my time in Cairns. I think you're a great example of what AirBnB is all about: interacting with locals. You gave me many good tips throughout my stay, thanks for those! And I'm already missing the cats!

    Jonna2019-05-31T00:00:00Z
  • Phoebe is wonderful host...it was my first Airbnb and I feel very lucky to have experienced it with her at Holloway's Beach......generous....thoughtful. helpful.....great room...very comfy bed...good location .... Yummy breakfast...I would definitely go back again...

    "Holidays at Holloways" is a beautiful four bedroom, two bathroom house located 5 minutes walk from gorgeous Holloways Beach, the closest netted beach to Cairns. With a private, resort style pool, an alfresco area with large BBQ and a bubbling water feature, situated in a seaside village 15 minutes drive from the centre of Cairns, and only a few minutes walk from local restaurants, cafes and a beachside bar, this holiday house has everything you will need for a fabulous tropical holiday.
    The house has four spacious bedrooms all with ceiling fans and airconditioning, a master with a queen bed, a walk in wardrobe and an ensuite and free to air TV, the second bedroom has a double bed and built in wardrobe, the third bedroom has a double bed and a view of the pool and the fourth bedroom doubles as an office with a single bed and large desk. The main bathroom has a large corner bath with a shower. The house has a large laundry with a washer, dryer and iron and ironing board. There is a large clothesline outside. The kitchen is a chef's delight, with a 90cm oven, gas cooktop, large french door fridge and view of tropical gardens through wooden louvres. The large, airconditioned lounge area features comfortable couches and a 55cm TV with free Netflix. Adjoining the lounge, there is a large alfresco area with a BBQ, large table and tranquil water feature surrounded by tropical gardens. You can cool off in the tropical pool, which is situated on the other side of the house and has a seat with bubble jets, just perfect for a late afternoon cocktail. There is a double garage with automatic garage door, and if you require parking for a boat there is also a larger, gated, parking area available (by prior arrangement) We welcome children and infants, and you will find some books, games and child friendly plates and cups at the house, but please be aware that the house has not been "child proofed" and parents are required to supervise their children at all times, especially around the pool and water feature.
    Holloways Beach is a wonderful, quiet beachside village. As you drive in through the canefields, you can feel yourself relaxing. The beach is one of the most beautiful in Far North Queensland, and is the closest netted beach to Cairns. Lifeguards are on duty during the wet season while the nets are up. The beach area has recently been re-done with new BBQs, paved walkways and a new childrens playground. The village itself has several great restaurants, a tropical beach side bar and restaurant, a small supermarket and a bottle shop all within a few minutes walk from the house. Markets are held once a month, and are definitely worth a visit.
  • Our Stay was excellent. Loved the stylish tropical flavour, the proximity to the esplanade and it's stunning sunrise, and the two great tips for local food and entertainment

    John2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is nice and the owners are wonderful~ They collected all the restaurants info around the house. The owners also replied our messages very fast and clearly. It was a great stay.

    Yingfeng2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a beautiful house,Very comfortable !Swimming pool is awesome!Carmen is very kindly,we spend a wonderful time in this house:)

    Maggie2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen and Barry’s AirBnb is outstanding! A very stylish house with an amazing outdoor patio area and pool for cooling off and having fun. The tropical garden adds to the feeling of being in paradise. This location is perfect for exploring all that the region has to offer, walk to beach/shops/cafes and also a short drive to Cairns and the airport/skyrail to Kuranda. I would totally recommend this spotless/luxurious AirBnb, great value for money. The extra special touches Carmen and Barry provided were beyond our expectations!

    Katherine2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen and Barry are amazing hosts and they have a beautiful home. The house was sparkling clean, with so much more than we expected. The location is great with a few minutes walk from the beach and restaurants. The kids really enjoyed the pool. Highly recommend this place!

    Hendrien2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • If there were 10 stars this place would be a 10/10! Carmen and Barry were more than gracious hosts! One of the air conditioner units broke down and they came in the same day with a new one! I couldn’t express how lovely this place really is. There is a delicious pizza/pasta place, a delicious breakfast spot, and a bar in front of the beach all within a 4-8 min walk! I wish I could have stayed much longer! 9 min drive to the Kuranda Sky railway from here to visit the Kuranda village. 15-20 min drive to Cairns terminal reef to go out on your expedition to the Great Barrier Reef. This place makes it all your worthwhile to visit Cairns. Thank you Carmen and Barry again so much! You guys are more than awesome!

    Robert2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house was amazing and had plenty of amenities. Perfect for a family or group of friends looking to go away. Loved the pool especially!

    Geoffrey2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Carmen and Barry were brilliant hosts, the house was beautiful, well furnished and our hosts had made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The house is only a short walk from the beach and local attractions. Spotlessly clean upon arrival as well. Wonderful experience, my family will definitely be back to stay again.

  • A super nice place to stay with a great outside area. Simone and her husband were very hospitable and generally very warm people. Too bad we were only there one night. Gladly again - and above all: gladly longer!

    Katharina2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place with beautiful pool, spotless room and bathroom, and aa large space only for the guests.

    Justine2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice, large, clean room with tea and coffee facilities, breakfast and use of the back porch, BBQ and pool which were lovely! Simone and Kraig were friendly and helpful and PawPaw the dog was a delight. We had a rental car which made Cairns, the Daintree rainforest and various walks and activities easily accessible from the house. There is also a bus into Cairns which we used once and was a short walk away and reasonable. Overall a great stay.

    Rebecca2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Simone and Kraig’s house as part of a flying visit. Good communication before and Simone met us with the lovely Paw Paw when we arrived. Both were easy to chat to and sociable. Room is clean and comfy. Lovely outdoor space provided with access to pool, BBQ etc. Great location for beach and a couple of nice restaurants. The only small thing was that this was the first place we stayed where wifi wasn’t free, which was a little frustrating. Overall though we were happy with our stay. Thank you :)

    Chloe2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Simone and Craig's place was as described. Very peaceful and close to the beach. Simone was available was necessary and easy to communicate with but also respectful of my privacy. Paw paw their dog is lovely.

    Pia2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay at Simone's place. The outside area is nice to hang out and the pool is big. They have a friendly dog that relaxed with us. Would recommend to stay there. Just one thing if you want to cook some bigger meals it's kinda hard because there's only one hotplate.

    Noah2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Simone and Craige's place was awesome. - they were very kind and welcoming. The dog (Paw paw) was also very friendly every time we greet her. The bedroom was very spacious with a super comfortable kingsize bed. A separate WC and a bathroom were clean and spacious. The outdoor living room/kitchen was very good with a fridge-freezer, sink, dishes etc, a BBQ, a dining table and a coffee table with a huge sofa. My partner and I recommend this place to those staying just outside the city.

    Benjamin2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic amenities for guests including outdoor kitchen and fridge, lounge and dining, and fabulous pool and garden. Beach is just a short walk down the road! Simone and Craig were welcoming and friendly. Their dog paw paw is sweet and loves a pat. We had a very comfortable stay!

We live close enough to the city, esplanade and waterfront lagoon, Marlin Marina and Rusty's Markets for you to walk.
    Staying this close to Cairns Central everything is close by; KFC and McDonald's / McCafe are just down the road, great sushi place on Sheridan St, and easy to get Chinese Takeout on McLeod St. And there's always Cairns Central Shopping Centre with supermarket, food courts, cafes, and the cimena's. Walking around town at night is fine, stay on the main lighted roads and McDonald's is open 24 hours. However it is not recommended to walk home alone in the very early hours of the morning. Best to get a cab.
  • Perfect place to stay for its value.

    Dominic2020-01-31T00:00:00Z

    Ebony2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

    Michelle2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • The best quality price cairs accommodation .. You have almost everything nearby and you are 15 minutes walk from the party area and if you rent a car outside you have plenty of free parking Richar the host the best and I would not hesitate to return to this site

    Darwin2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A place that has what you do need and doesn't bother with what you don't need. Terrific location, friendly service at an outstanding price.

    Calvin2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay! Communication was excellent.

    Maddie2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great value and good location. Richard went out of his way to let me leave my stuff in his office for an extra day and then collect it in the evening. Even though he was out on the boat with limited service, communication was spot on as he would always get back to me. Remember to lock your room before leaving as the front gate lacks a lock. Overall, positive experience and would consider again.

    Rafal2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay 10 mn walk from cairns central. The host are very thoughtful during your stay. I do recommend it

  • It's really nice place to stay. Very clean and tidy place. Aiden is a great host, very friendly. Kitchen stuff is perfect!

  • I really enjoyed the two weeks i stayed in Caravonica. The room was all i needed and it was really easy to get to Cairns and to nearby shopping centers (two in total). The kitchen could get a bit crowded since there are caravans that stay at the house too. The bathroom and toilet were in great shape. It was great that there were airbnb exclusive areas. I took some of Billie-Jean's recommendations and liked all of them. All in all I can only recommend staying there and will happily come back if i ever visit Cairns again.

  • Great location and amazing value, staying at Billie-Jean’s place was a pleasure. Super comfortable bed, great bathroom with high-quality shower and heaps of couch space in the lounge. This is a shared house of friendly and easy going people where you will feel at ease and welcomed. Perfect for couples, travelers and singles. We had a great time and would absolutely stay again. Many thanks, Billie-Jean!

  • Rita and Manu are very, very good value for money, convenient, and bikes are available, but because we rented a car, we did n’t ride. Manu helped us pick up two oversized and oversized suitcases. Today we went to the Great Barrier Reef to play. We need to leave early. Manu also drove us to the hotel to store our luggage and then sent it to the dock. We talked with them a lot about their hometown. Recommended recommendation, perfect score host! !! !!

  • Exactly what you want from an Airbnb! Lovely hosts, friendly and full of helpful tips on the surrounding area, very cool stylish space, super clean everywhere and a great location between the airport and city centre. One of our favourites!

    Kosta2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the hospitality, the bikes, the luggage storage… all makes me feel home. Rita is very enthusiastic, living in Cairns North, ten minutes to the dock Uber and 10 minutes to the Kuranda cable car station Uber. The bus station is 100 meters downstairs and there is a convenience store next to it. Great value accommodation, super clean and convenient. Rita also borrowed a bicycle to give us a night tour of Cairns, it was great.

    Alison2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the stay in Rita‘s flat very much. All hosts were very nice! The flat is situated near to the airport and the botanic garden. A walk in the city of Cairns was also possible along the seaside. The flat is really clean and modern. We liked to have a air conditioner in the tropic. :)
