This small complex of only six units is located centrally on Martyn Street, Parramatta Park, approximately 1 km (10 Mins) walk to Cairns Central Shopping Centre and 2 kms (20 mins) walk to Cairns City.

This Unit has undergone a complete renovation and is fully equipped with near new appliances and furniture.

The space
Thank you for your booking for our apartment. Below is some information on the property, the apartment you have chosen and our beautiful City of Cairns.

The Complex

The apartment is located on Martyn Street in a small complex of six units. The property was built in the late 1970s and is not a new modern building.

Upgrades have been done to the apartments and exterior of the property to make it a lovely complex. We are offering good quality accommodation at a budget price. Inside we have tried to make it as nice as possible for our guests, and have included a few extras as a bonus to make your stay away from home comfortable.

What is in the Apartment?

The entire apartment is solely yours for your stay. This is a one bedroom apartment that is very large inside. The main bedroom has a queen size bed, plus a single bed. This provides beds for 3 adults.

In the living area we also have a day bed with a good quality single mattress which can also be used as a bed for a guest.

We do provide good quality linen to the beds, a quilt cover and pillows to all beds. There will be a towel for each paying guest provided. Please note we do not provide beach towels.

Although an older apartment, we have tried to upgrade internally to a lovely standard. Having a well presented apartment is high on our priorities. Providing a very clean environment is just as important. It is a nice, comfortable, clean apartment and perfect for your stay. It is fully tiled throughout, including the bedrooms. The furniture and appliances are near new and of good quality for budget accommodation.

To make your stay a little bit nicer, we do provide some extras. In the shower you will find shampoo, conditioner and body wash. There is hand wash at both the kitchen and bathroom vanity. We provide the essentials like toilet paper, paper towel, aluminium foil, plastic wrap, baking paper, salt and pepper, tomato/bbq sauce etc.

In the apartment you will find some basics – we have tea, coffee, milk and sugar – we even have a nice variety of herbal teas. In the fridge you will find a variety of spreads and of course the all Australian VEGEMITE!! There is tomato/bbq sauce, salt and pepper as well as olive oil. Best of all we also leave you a packet of our famous Australian Tim Tam biscuits – you need to search for 'Tim Tam Slam' and see how to best enjoy these classic Australian biscuits.


We provide a clean, compact, well equipped kitchen with electric upright stove, microwave and a new fridge. There is a washing machine, but not a clothes dryer for you to use during your stay. We have provided many photos so you can see the property internally and externally - it is a great, affordable property that is close to the City Centre.

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, these are split system air conditioners in the two bedrooms. If you have this set at 25 degrees, this will keep the property 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.

As our minimum temperature – even in winter rarely dips below 20 degrees, we provide linen to the beds, and a quilt cover. There are no blankets or quilts in the apartment – keeping cool is our problem not keeping warm!!

There are plenty of washing lines to the rear of the property 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.

There is a courtyard with table and chairs to sit at the rear of the apartment if you wish to smoke. Inside is strictly no smoking.

Checking in and Checking out

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

PLEASE NOTE: We do not have a bag drop facility, so please allow for this with your travel plans.

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

One of the most important things to us is to provide a clean, well appointed 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. Working in with our guests is just as important so we will do our best to work with you.

There is a lock box on site for the key to the apartment – meaning you can arrive at any time after 2pm on day of check in, 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. Two keys are provided for you to use during your stay.


Cairns is still a large Country town in many respects. Fortunately there is only timed and paid for parking right in the middle of the City. At Martyn Street there is plenty of parking on the street right outside the complex. You can park there for free.

At the property there is a large open area and you may park off street. The parking is not marked and is available for any of our guests to use during their stay. It is free to park and not timed.

Getting Around

The location of our Martyn Street property is great as the City Centre, Esplanade, shops and restaurants are all within 2 kilometres. There is a bus stop within 200 metres of our Apartments. The major supermarkets of Coles and Woolworths are closer into the middle of the City but still an easy walk away. Cairns Central is just over a kilometre walking distance.

The walk into the Centre of the City will depend on your level of fitness and speed you walk. It will take anywhere between 20 – 40 minutes to get right into the middle of the City.

The reef tours all depart from the Pier, which is in the middle of the City and very 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. KFC and McDonalds are 3 blocks south in Martyn Street.

The Airport is approximately 10 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 Ube available which is cheaper to use.

House Rules

•This property is not a hotel and we do not provide daily service.
•We ask that you respect the neighbours and keep the noise down to a minimum after 10pm
•Do not smoke inside the units – smoking is permitted outside.
•If there is any maintenance, or if an item is accidentally broken – please let us know so we can repair or replace it.
•Dispose of ALL rubbish in the apartment, including emptying the bins prior to your departure.
•Please turn off the air conditioning when leaving the property.

What to do in Cairns?

Cairns and the surrounding areas have some of the most beautiful and amazing places to see. There is such a wide range of tours that are available - and finding the perfect tour for your needs and budget can be mind boggling.

We work closely with a great tour booking agent in Cairns. David and his team will work with you to find the best tour for you and your group.

There is NO COST to use this service - it is completely free to use. If you do book a tour, the company pays a small commission to the booking agent.


One of the reasons we started doing Airbnb is because of the lack of pet friendly accommodation in the area. The definition of pet friendly varies – for us it means they can come inside and they can be part of your holiday here in Cairns. We do not expect our dogs to sleep outside – so if your pets live inside with you, that is fine.

If you wish to travel with your pet, we do need to approve this first. Please don't turn up with a pet without asking us first.

Our rules for having pets with you:-
1. Please keep them off the furniture (most importantly the bed linen as this is laundered by an external company who request this).
2. Bag and dispose of all poops responsibly and quickly
3. They are on a lead or contained when in common areas.
4. If your pet sheds their fur a lot we do also ask if you can please keep on top of the fur in order not to hold up the cleaning team at vacate time. They do have a tight schedule and extra time wiping fur or picking up poops may incur an additional cleaning fee.
