Other things to note
To set the expectation right, we feel that we need to clarify a few things.

- This refurbished home is not a hotel nor a resort. This is a residential area consisted of 10 units. The complex is over 30 years old so the common area can look a bit dated to some; but the interior of the unit is refurbished with updated furnishing.

- The common area looks quite ordinary. Please acknowledge this before booking. Unsure why some of the reviews are fairly harsh....

- There are long term residents of a mix of different races who reside in the area, so please be respectful of them as you would like to be treated and respected. Neighbours are friendly if you treat them the same way.

- The area is safe, quiet and peaceful (except for school holidays when children are around!).  If you enjoy the essence of local living with a mix of nationalities around you, you will like our space.

- We appoint a local housekeeper to do cleaning for each check in and out changeover for us as we don't reside locally. Hence, it is important that you let us know, during your stay, not after, should there be any issues with cleanliness. We have been operating since 2017 and the interior is generally clean and tidy as we regularly update our interior. New ceiling lights were installed in Oct 2019. 10 new external lights were installed in Nov 2019.

- The swimming pool is serviced weekly by a professional pool maintence company. We have, however, experienced right after storm (which can be common in Cairns tropical weather during wet seasons) that the pool can be looking uninviting right away.  This is not a lot that we can do about it as it is a common issue in Cairns and we simply cannot control the weather.

- There has not been a lot of rain since Jun 2019. Level 1 water restriction is, therefore, in force across Australia. We are unable to water the garden as a result of the water restriction. The communal garden is currently looking dry and unloved. During the dry season in Apr to Oct, dust can easily blow into the unit, where a little window gap is opened for ventilation, or even when the ACs are on, can attract the dust to go inside, even if the place is only changed over hours ago! For those who are sensitive to dust or have hayfever l recommend that you take tablets before arriving Cairns. The wet season starts from Nov to Mar where the garden will be looking green and inviting again!

- The communal coin operated laundry does not look fancy, but it is used regularly by neighbours and it is safe to have clothes washed there.

- This unit is a GROUND LEVEL UNIT, there are no steps to get into it and parking is very close. The place is suitable for all ages.

中国朋友欢迎您,我会说普通话和广东话, 希望您会喜欢我在悉尼, 和凯恩斯的房子。 谢谢您看了我的简介, 也希望在悉尼见到您! I have lived in Sydney for over 20 years and love the culture, food and people here, originally from Hong Kong. Yummy food is something I definitely cannot live without. I love all sort of food including Modern Australian, Asian, European and Indian etc. One of my favourite place for food is the Sydney Fish Market where I can eat freshly made Sashimi. My favourite travel destination is Paris because the place is charming and people are friendly. I have been to many places in Asia, Europe and America, and look forward to travel more in the coming days. My latest travelled destination was Cairns and I have been there twice. I love the lifestyle, the many outdoor activities, and the natural tropical and leafy atmostphere. I highly recommnend those who have not been to Cairns to go and take a look! I would say Cairns easily beat the Gold Coast in terms of natural beauty! While I do like my city life I also love what the nature has gifted. Cairns truly is a place you do not wish to miss! If I was travelling I would like the place to be homey and provide all the essentials like home. No matter if you are staying in my place in Sydney or Cairns I hope you will like my homey place as much as I do, and most importantly stay safe and have fun!
