Location

Whitfield, Queensland, Australia

My house is in a quiet leafy neighbourhood only a 7 minute drive to the town of Cairns. It is a friendly community. It is a very quiet residential area so not suitable for parties or celebrations.

I have lived in Cairns for 7 years now and I love the warm, tropical lifestyle and the friendly locals. I have 2 gorgeous children aged 7 and 10, who love meeting our guests and sharing their tips about their favourite places in the local area. I enjoy exploring the region on the weekends, and finding the best places to go for coffee, brunch and dinner. I love exploring the many markets in the area and going for a dip at the beach or one of the many beautiful waterfalls in the area. I am happy to give lots of tips on the best places to go. I am also happy to leave you alone to enjoy my lovely home and discover your own special places here. My children and I also use AirBnB when we travel and we know the difference it makes when there are books and toys provided for children to play with. I aim to make your stay as easy and relaxing as possible and I try to think of little things to help achieve that.
