“I dreamt about this place longtime before to get in! And honestly I had a blast ! The place was beyond my expectations. Everything is cared in all details . I adored the tub outside close to the turtle and lizards and the little adorable green frogs 🐸 in front of the dining area in the garden . I really had great time there and fully recovered and relaxed . And I was able to walk to the city as the pad is very close to the esplanade.”
Come to a home in KURANDA rainforest reserve. A room is ready for a generous price!
“Elizabeths place is amazing. Its a rural setting with the designs of being a working farm. The wallaby grazing the yard in the morning was delightful as well as sleeping with the sounds of the jungle reverberating! This is NOT a place for everyone. If you are looking for that 5 star luxury resort atmosphere, go somewhere else. If you are looking to support local people in their real life, then look no further. The room that she has set aside for guests is safe, private and exceptionally clean. I found, though, i enjoyed the veranda out from the kitchen most, as well as Elizabeth's company. What a amazing woman she is! The bathroom is still being finished but is very serviceable and private. I loved the design she is working on. Again, this is not for those that want a pristine, postcard experience, but for those of us who love to experience the life of those that live there...day to day! THANK YOU Elizabeth for an exceptional experience!”

“Perfectly enjoyable relaxed countryside accommodation with good location (walkable to Smithfield shopping centre and bus stop) at a reasonable price. Nice backyard with lovely hens, clean bathroom and kitchen place, cozy room with ceiling fan Sandra was really kind to me and did me a lot of favour (pick-up and drop-off at the bus stop, giving me a lift when she was available. etc) Since she gave me good local information, I enjoyed nice holidays and visit awesome places while staying there. I think it is the best place not only for students but also travellers. I already missed her and her hens! Thank you and see you soon, Sandra!”
