The kitchen is the heart of the apartment – it is big kitchen with lots of bench space, complete with gas cook top and a big fridge. We do provide a washing machine, but not a dryer. We have put lots of photos on so you can see the property internally and externally - it is a great, property that is close to the City Centre. You may walk to the City – or a taxi or Uber is a very cheap and simple way to get into the City.


Guest access

You get to use the entire one bedroom apartment, including kitchen and bathroom for your stay. There is no sharing of facilities. You do get access to the under ground parking space – this is free to use.

Interaction with guests

We do not live on site, however keeping our guests is a high priority. If there are any issues at all during the stay all we ask is that a message be sent and we can try our best to resolve any issues quickly.

What is in the Apartment?

The property comes self contained and we provide linen to the beds, and towels for all guests. The kitchen is self contained with everything down to the wine glasses!!

To make your stay a little bit nicer, we do provide some extras. In the shower you will find shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. There is hand wash at both the kitchen and vanity. We provide the essentials like toilet paper, paper towels, aluminium foil, plastic wrap etc. There is a large fridge and freezer for you to use, a full cooking facility as well as a microwave. The unit does come with a washing machine, but no dryer. We do provide a small drying rack for you to use.

There is a television so you can watch all the free to air channels.

We also have high speed internet at the property. You will receive the wifi details the day before you arrive. You and your guests can use this during your stay.

In the fridge you will find some basics to make your stay nice – we have tea, coffee, milk and sugar – we have a nice variety of teas as well as herbal teas. In the fridge you will find a variety of jams, peanut butter and of course the all Australian VEGEMITE!! There is tomato sauce, salt and pepper as well as oil and vinegar. Best of all we also leave you a packet of our famous Australian Tim Tam biscuits – you need to investigate the Tim Tam Slam and see how to best enjoy these classic Australian biscuits. We do not provide breakfast with in the booking.

If you wish to smoke, we ask that you only smoke on the balcony. We ask that you please do not smoke inside.

How Many People Can Stay??

This property is a one bedroom unit and there is one queen bed – ideal for two guests. We know that there are some larger groups that want to stay. We have a sofa and day bed in the living room which will comfortably sleep one more.

We do provide good quality linen to the beds, a quilt cover and pillows to all beds. As we live in a tropical environment where the temperature rarely dips below 20 degrees at night time - WE DO NOT PROVIDE BLANKETS. There will be a towel for each paying guest provided, as well as hand towels. Please note we do not provide beach towels.

Cairns Climate

We are located in the wet tropics. This means it is HOT all year round. Even in our winter it is still warm during the day.

Summer (December – February)

During summer in Cairns, average temperatures range from 23.6 - 31.4°C (74.5 - 88.5°F). The wet season begins building up around December, and most of the region's annual rainfall (around 2000mm / 78.7") occurs in the summer months.

Autumn (March – May)

It is still very warm in autumn, both day and night, with temperatures averaging between 21.5 - 29°C (70.7 - 84.2°F). The rain subsides from April, however the weather can be windy until August.

Winter (June – August)

Winter in Cairns brings slightly cooler temperatures and lower humidity, making it the peak tourist season. Average temperatures range from 17.5 - 26°C (63.5 - 78.8°F) and there is low rainfall.

Spring (September – November)

In spring average temperatures range from 20.5 – 29°C (68.9 - 84.2°F). This is the end of the dry season when humidity starts to build with the onset of the wet season from December. In November the reef comes alive with the annual coral spawning.

Keeping Cool in Cairns

We do live in the wet tropics and being hot and humid is part of daily life. Our winters are cooler, but during the day they are still warm enough to wear shorts and a t shirt.

In the property you will find ceiling fans in the living area as well as the bedrooms. To help keep cool, I suggest you turn the fans on – this will circulate the air around and help keep you cool.

There is air conditioning in the unit for you to use during your stay. There is air conditioning through out the apartment. If you have this set at 25 degrees, this will keep the bedroom cool but still be efficient. Part of offering affordable accommodation is asking our guests to turn off the air conditioners when they aren’t home. There is no issue with using the air conditioners when at home.


Parking

You will have access to the allocated parking bay in the under ground carpark. This is free to use for your stay. If you have a second vehicle, there is plenty of visitors parking around the property – again free for you to use.

Neighbourhood – Overview

Cairns One is located approximately 2.6 kilometres to the Esplanade in the middle of the City. Cairns Central our largest shopping centre is located approximately 2 kilometres away.

The walk into the Centre of the City will depend on your level of fitness and speed you walk. It will take any where between 25 - 40 minutes to get right into the middle of the City. Taking a taxi or Uber is very affordable. There is also a bus service that runs along Mulgrave Road that will take you to the City Centre.

The reef tours all depart from the Pier, which is in the middle of the City and really easy to get to. Cairns has one of the best range of restaurants you could want – you really have to try Oasis Kebabs on the Esplanade – they do the best kebabs in the whole world.

The Airport is approximately 15 minutes drive away. You can take a taxi which will cost approximately $20 -25 depending on the time of day and traffic conditioners. There is also Uber, however I personally have not used this service before.

Checking in and Checking out

As soon as possible, please confirm your arrival and departure times so we can put this into our calendar.

Check in time – 2pm
Check out time – 10am

One of the most important things to us is to provide a really clean property for our guests to stay at. A thorough clean is performed between guests, and to maintain the standard we need to have the check out time at 10am and the check in time as 2pm.

We have a lock box on site for the apartment – meaning you can arrive at any time without the need for us to meet you on site. Details of the property and how to access the lock box will be sent to you the day before your arrival. You will be provided with two keys for you to use during your stay.


We do not live on site - but it is really important that our guests can contact us if there is an issue. We monitor the Airbnb messages constantly - and can be contacted any time this way or by simply calling our mobile.

Our apartment is a very affordable way to travel – it is not a serviced apartment, nor is it a hotel. The rate we charge per night, when broken down to a cost per guest is very affordable.

To assist us in keeping the cost low, we do ask for you to please turn off the air conditioning when leaving the property. There is no issue with you using the air conditioning to keep you cool and comfortable – but to run them is very expensive. When you leave for the day, all we ask is that you turn them off.

Unlike a hotel environment, we do not provide daily service. If you wish for extra cleaning, just let us know and we can arrange this at an extra cost. Similarly we do not top up items during you stay such as washing powder, toilet rolls etc.

This is a high density environment and we ask that you respect the neighbours and keep the noise down to a minimum after 10pm. If there is an issue with any of the neighbours, please report this immediately so it can be dealt with quickly. We want to give each of our guests a great environment to enjoy.

We charge a cleaning fee of $60. This is to clean the unit prior to the next guest and have all the linen professionally cleaned. We do ask our guests to please dispose of ALL rubbish in the apartment, including emptying the bins prior to your departure. All dishes are to be washed, dried and put away. We try to keep our costs down so that we can continue to provide good, clean and very affordable accommodation for our guests.

You will be provided with two keys on your arrival. If there are not two keys on your arrival, you must notify us immediately. Should two keys not be returned, we must for security purposes have the locks changed. There is a cost of $100 for any lost keys to cover new locks and to have them professionally installed. Cost of replacement security fobs is $100 each.

Interaction with guests

We do not live on site but we are accessible at any time via the Airbnb app or just call our mobile.

This was a perfect apartment for a relaxing stay. Several amazing outdoor pools to choose from, a tennis court and a corner store all within the complex. It is quite central and every location we went to was a walkable distance away. Overall a great place to stay in Cairns.
