EUREKA HOUSE is centrally located and close to all amenities. This grand two storey house built in the 1940's has been lovingly and stylishly renovated. The house has three bedrooms that will comfortably sleep 6 people. All rooms have original ornate ceilings with genuine polished black bean timber floors and classic casement windows. GLBTI friendly.

The space

Split system air conditioning in all three bedrooms and Dining Room/Kitchen for those really hot summer days/nights.
The house also has beautifully restored casement windows throughout that open to catch the cool breezes. So much better for you than airconditioning.
My favourite place is the kitchen, which is open plan. It has a six burner gas stove, a dishwasher, large fridge and everything else that you can think of. This is a great place to chill out with family and friends over a glass of wine while preparing that amazing meal.
The lounge room opens onto the enclosed verandah, made up of ornate wrought iron panels, overlooking the landscaped gardens. There are comfy cane lounge chairs to sit and chill while you watch the world go by or just read a book or maybe catch fifty winks. Don't forget you are on holiday!
The third bedroom has double doors that open onto a seperate enclosed verandah with ornate wrought iron. Private seating and a great place to chill out.
Comfortable lounge with a large TV and Netflix to catch up on those dramas/shows that you have been watching back home and thought that you might miss out on. Watch TV or take a much needed nap, when you're not exploring this amazing part of the world or diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
This bathroom has just won Beaumont Tiles "Australia's Best Bathroom 2017". Definitely my other favourite place in the house. Wall tiles that go right up to the ceiling and beautiful patterned floor tiles. Rain shower or spacious bath to soak away all your travel stress, double sinks and large mirror. Everything is supplied, all you have to do is bring your toothbrush. The bathroom has light dimmers for those quite private bath times.
Laundry has a washing machine and clothes dryer and a second toilet.
Other extras that we will provide, Netflix, reading material, board games, tea, coffee, milk, olive oil, salt and pepper, cling wrap and paper towels. shampoo and conditioner, body wash, toilet paper, tissues, face wipes, cotton buds, hair dryer, laundry powder and clothes airer.
So what are you waiting for....this house has everything and more..

All the previous accolades to Fortune and Greg are all true. They provide more than you can imagine and the home has more than most of us have at our own homes. Super accommodations and they are the only hosts I have elected to provide a review out of the 4 I have visited on my trip.

This place is amazing for the price. You have an entire house that is as spotless as Buckingham palace. Every room were big and had air conditioning. The bathroom is amazing and supplied with all towels and soap needed. There was even sunscreen. There's a washer/dryer if needed. A bit of food too. Fortune had even left some tim Tam's. There is a big patio and garden. There's mosquito screens everywhere almost (didn't have that many anyways outside). The location is a bit outside of Central but maybe just 10 minutes away from downtown by taxi. We took the cab a lot, just get a number and call them. Cost is around 10$for one way. Excellent chicken place next to the house by the way. They have coffee too. Fortune was there to give us the keys when we arrived and showed us a book filled with informations and even the menu of some good restaurants. It was an excellent choice for us 4 as a family.

Marvellous home spotlessly clean, special touches like bread & milk and other necessities upon arrival so you don't need to go out for supples straight away. Host at house to greet us. Plenty of room, large Queenslander house, fabulous veranda spent many a night in the warm Qld night air eating and chatting. Only a short distance from the city, thoroughly recommend this home.

Hi there! My husband Greg and I love to travel! Our first Airbnb experiences were in Seoul, Korea and Osaka, Japan. We were hooked! Our most recent trip was to Minakami in Japan for 2 weeks. Other than travelling we are semi retired and have been renovating two houses which is both a labour of love and hard work. We first moved to Cairns in 1976, fell in love with the place and decided to settle down and start a family. 40 years later we still love it here especially during the winter months when Cairns is at it's peak!

My favourite travel destination would have to be the USA. We have done 3 trips to the USA where we drove an RV from one side to the other over a two month period. What a fabulous place! If I won the lottery I would travel the world with friends and family and never look back!
