Fully s/c tropical living with a beautiful light filled b'room and lounge/dining veranda overlooking lush tropical rainforest gardens in a small beach village just 15 mins from Cairns and a short stroll to the beach. Enjoy the idyllic indoor/outdoor lifestyle cooled by sea breezes, balmy nights and the delightful option of showering under the giant fishtail palm!
Enjoy a private, self contained, unique and tropical living area with private entrance, beautiful windowed bedroom, large ensuite, well equipped kitchenette and a beautiful open lounge / dining veranda for relaxing and enjoying an exotic tropical garden and stunning bird watching. The accommodation is a guest suite located at the rear of my home which has been separated exclusively for guests to enjoy a tropical ambience in a self contained and private space. A complimentary breakfast is available on the first morning of your stay to enjoy on the verandah or in any of the garden settings, whilst listening to the morning birdsong. Your accommodation provides a very comfortable Q/S bed furnished with pure cotton bedding and towels. The kitchenette provides a kettle, small cooktop stove and fridge, a sink area for washing up and all cutlery, crockery and pots and pans for cooking. The verandah is furnished with a large dining table and 2 lounge areas for use. An additional smaller dining area is situated just below in the garden which is lit up at night when in use. The bathroom is a spacious ensuite with the entrance just outside your bedroom door. These facilities include the toilette, bathing tub and shower. An alternative and uniquely tropical experience is the outdoor garden shower (with hot and cold water) under the giant fishtail palm, which is a wonderful option to a conventional bathroom! The bedroom is surrounded by windows and overlooks a large variety of tropical plants, gingers, rainforest flame trees, ponds and palms designed for private enjoyment. Butterflies and sun birds play on the flowers and a sea breeze keeps the home pleasantly cool and comfortable all year round. The accommodation is a traditional Queensland style timber home built in 1956 by the local Cairns fire men.
Machans Beach is an attractive and friendly coastal village situated 15 minutes north of Cairns, nestled in behind the cane fields. It has been untouched by commercial tourism and retains much of north Queensland's original charm. Very safe, it is lovely to walk everywhere; especially along the palm fringed water front Esplanade and through the shaded 'Dungarra' Nature Reserve beside the Barron River. *Dungarra is an ancient Aboriginal gathering site which is highly regarded by bird watching groups who have viewed over 130 different species - including the colourful Paradise Kingfisher. The river is still popular with many Aboriginal and Islanders net fishing and sometimes also the pelicans! *A charming waterfront licensed restaurant and bar opens at 3 pm and is in easy walking distance. * A lovely early morning cafe opens 7am-3pm. * A general store, post office and fuel station are open every day.
  • Annie is a fantastic host and a fountain of local knowledge. The place was sparkling clean, with a beautiful spacious garden and close to a few lovely spots. There were many amneties available including an outside shower which is highly recommended.

  • Lovely little getaway, wish we could've stayed longer. Beautiful space and great help with bookings and local tips.

    Kimberly2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Annie was a great, helpful host! The place was nice and we enjoyed our stay, apart from some local mosquitos that also wanted to visit and have supper. Machen’s Beach was a great location for us to see the Cairns area!

    Roger2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Annie was amazing. She helped us with our itinerary and suggested some really amazing places. Overall she was a wonderful host and I would highly recommend Annie’s place.

    Preeti2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Annie's airbnb is beautifully arranged, and full of cute and charismatic decor. The outdoor shower is a big plus, as well the critters passing through, such as adorable green tree frogs :) The room was clean, comfortable and everything you could need is provided. Annie is also very helpful with local spots and very accommodating

    Jay2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Annie’s place was unique and super cute. Her room was an indoor/outdoor experience, with really cool amenities like the outdoor shower. She’s welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable and will answer any and all questions about things to do in Cairns on and off the reef. Loved our stay!

    Catherine2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Annie’s place is one of the most beautiful environments we had stayed at. You get the perfect feel of tropical North Queensland by staying here. The place is immaculate with every amenity you need for a good vacation. But the fact that stands out is Annie’s awareness and knowledge of the tourism industry there and her proactive guidance around booking trips, activities ET al. Annie and her place is highly recommended :)

    Suraj2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • It is a fantastic location for everything. Had no issues what so ever. We had no hurdles to overcome so honestly I would highly recommend this place, Annie is always great with responses whether you need help or tips on where to go. Top things for me were the outdoor shower, bathroom right next door and the veranda. You have a great bar minutes from the house along with a lovely beach (when the tide is low). Fantastic place would highly recommend. Jason

  • Ardyn's place is lovely and casual with a resort style atmosphere. All our needs were met, and nothing was to much trouble for Ardyn. The pool was great to enjoy and I found the outside shower, which situated on the deck, wonderful to pop under when you are feeling sticky from the heat. A lovely stay was had

  • I stayed at Ardyn’s place with my dog, only for a few days but I would highly recommened it for all those who want to have easy access to a beautful, pet friendly Holloway’s Beach (only 50m), local coffee bars, as well as Northern part of Cairns and further Palm Cove and Port Douglas. Ardyn’s place was stylish, relaxing and the host herself was easygoing and very helpful.

    Adrian2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ardyn's Funky Beach Retreat is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your holiday. The beach is not even a minutes walk from the accommodation and Holloways is a lovely place to stay. Ardyn made us feel really welcome and at home, she's a great host. We would definitely recommend staying here!

    Jessie2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great adventure, special and unique place, very peaceful. Close to the city, about 10 minutes from everything, plenty of maps and guides for the area are available in the place. Definitely recommended!

  • A super nice place to stay with a great outside area. Simone and her husband were very hospitable and generally very warm people. Too bad we were only there one night. Gladly again - and above all: gladly longer!

    Katharina2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place with beautiful pool, spotless room and bathroom, and aa large space only for the guests.

    Justine2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice, large, clean room with tea and coffee facilities, breakfast and use of the back porch, BBQ and pool which were lovely! Simone and Kraig were friendly and helpful and PawPaw the dog was a delight. We had a rental car which made Cairns, the Daintree rainforest and various walks and activities easily accessible from the house. There is also a bus into Cairns which we used once and was a short walk away and reasonable. Overall a great stay.

    Rebecca2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Simone and Kraig’s house as part of a flying visit. Good communication before and Simone met us with the lovely Paw Paw when we arrived. Both were easy to chat to and sociable. Room is clean and comfy. Lovely outdoor space provided with access to pool, BBQ etc. Great location for beach and a couple of nice restaurants. The only small thing was that this was the first place we stayed where wifi wasn’t free, which was a little frustrating. Overall though we were happy with our stay. Thank you :)

    Chloe2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Simone and Craig's place was as described. Very peaceful and close to the beach. Simone was available was necessary and easy to communicate with but also respectful of my privacy. Paw paw their dog is lovely.

    Pia2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great stay at Simone's place. The outside area is nice to hang out and the pool is big. They have a friendly dog that relaxed with us. Would recommend to stay there. Just one thing if you want to cook some bigger meals it's kinda hard because there's only one hotplate.

    Noah2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Simone and Craige's place was awesome. - they were very kind and welcoming. The dog (Paw paw) was also very friendly every time we greet her. The bedroom was very spacious with a super comfortable kingsize bed. A separate WC and a bathroom were clean and spacious. The outdoor living room/kitchen was very good with a fridge-freezer, sink, dishes etc, a BBQ, a dining table and a coffee table with a huge sofa. My partner and I recommend this place to those staying just outside the city.

    Benjamin2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic amenities for guests including outdoor kitchen and fridge, lounge and dining, and fabulous pool and garden. Beach is just a short walk down the road! Simone and Craig were welcoming and friendly. Their dog paw paw is sweet and loves a pat. We had a very comfortable stay!

  • What a great experience. We had a lovely time here and the airbnb exceeded our expectations. It’s was spacious, clean and air conditioned. The location was beautiful, with the beach just outside the gate. We had many chilled evenings in the garden and on the hammock. Daniel was so helpful and friendly and made us feel at home. The dog and cat were an extra bonus!! Would highly recommend staying here, and will defiantly be returning in the future! Thanks Daniel!

    Amy2020-03-31T00:00:00Z

    Lauren2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect escape from the city, on the beach, with great local transport links to the airport and early and late buses regularly to and from Cairns. The space was clean, tidy, well equipped and comfortable, with a terrace to relax after a long day and full use of the garden. The dog even comes to say hi too! Dan could not have done more. He responded quickly, was super flexible with check in times and accommodated an extra day at very short notice. Would highly recommend for someone who wants their own space out of the city, and would 100% go back!! 10/10!

    Michael2020-01-17T00:00:00Z

  • The house was beyond perfect! We loved walking the beach each morning and night and would love to come stay again in the future! Kaz was quick to respond to any questions and respectfully provided us our privacy during our stay. The house felt like a home and was much needed after many weeks away from ours. The bed is cozy, the kitchen was fabulous for meals and the living room has a fantastic view of the ocean front just meters away! 10/10!

    Samantha2020-03-11T00:00:00Z

Kaz and her family were very hospitable, and even allowed me to check out later than the noted time. I would highly recommend staying with Kaz if you are visiting Cairns. Please note that Machans Beach is about a minute drive from Cairns, but public transport is available.

Kaz was a great host, setting up the sofa bed and turning the AC before we arrived on a late flight and was very responsive with local recommendations. Can not recommend this place enough!

  • Moti and his place were fantastic. He provided plenty of material for us to read to get to know the area and give us some ideas for things to do. Anytime I would bump into him he was friendly and gave advice for things to do. The amenities were also fantastic especially the toiletries. If I’m lucky enough to come back to cairns when this place is available I’m definitely saying there again

    Nick2020-03-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had an absolutely fabulous stay at Moti’s in Machans Beach. The decor is lovely. Moti has gone above and beyond in terms of amenities - seriously it’s all there— even travel adapter plugs. The whole place is spotlessly clean. We really enjoyed swimming in the pool. Our sole regret is not being able to stay for longer. Moti was lovely and we really enjoyed chatting with him. The location is about 10 min north of Cairns which was not an issue at all - this Airbnb is a gem and well worth the stay. Can’t wait to return.

    Elyse2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful place to stay with everything a family would need. Beautifully furnished, clean and so tranquil. Six out of five stars!

    Katie2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place about 15min north of downtown Cairns and even closer to the airport. My friend and I enjoyed each having our own room and the kitchen to use for coffee and snacks. Parking on the street was super easy; I’d HIGHLY recommend getting a rental car, as you’re a drive to best beaches/sights/food. Moti was very welcoming. *Note you will find occasion bugs inside (i.e. roaches, crickets and large spiders) which sneak in through cracks or the window panes in the bathroom. - would come back!

    Sheila2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing and so relaxing esp after a day out!

    Kez2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

    Samantha2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Moti’s place was lovely. It was comfortable, had everything we needed, plus more. We loved the pool and the design of the space. Moti was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The property is in a very nice location convenient to Cairns but quite and peaceful. Stay here you’ll love it.

    Sandy2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Alex's. He is very knowledgeable about the area and goes above and beyond to give his guests a great experience. We went fishing with him and learned allot of new things. In the morning he would make us delicious coffees and hot chocolate and would make us food every chance he had. A really genuine person and we'd stay with him again in a heartbeat!

    Mark2017-09-03T00:00:00Z

  • 5-star in every category, we can’t say enough about it. Exceeded all expectations. We visited from USA to dive the reef in Cairns, and only expected the “average” nice AirBnB. Great host, place is on the beach, if an amenity wasn’t available in our rental itself, it was offered to us on the main property to include clothesline, pool, too much more to list. Spotlessly clean place, set up so comfortable to every detail. I hope this place is available the next time we visit Cairns!

    Steven2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful views! The location is spectacular! Felt safe the entire time. Judi, the host, is available and around to answer any questions as well as give suggestions for things to do in the area. Fin, the canine host, is one of the sweetest dogs ever! Great experience- would definitely stay again!

    Christine2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wow wow wow - what an Airbnb property and location. Right on the beach, Judi and David's property has everything for a luxury stay. 5 star in every way. A spacious self contained apartment with high end fixtures and fittings that has been so well designed with the guest in mind. Judi and David were perfect hosts and nothing was too much trouble from local tips to homemade banana bread! Access to the stunning pool with waves lapping nearby made a relaxing stay complete. Thank you so much!

    David2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great location with a sea breeze. The perfect place to relax and unwind. Judi and David have thought through everything and have handy guide books for exploring Cairns and surrounds. Thanks Judi!

    Melina2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was so well set up and all the needs of the travellers were catered to. Judi is an extremely hospitable and warm person and the property is also truly amazing. Words aren’t enough to explain the mind blowing experience we had.

    Lalit2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! What a delightful stay... Couldn't have been better. Had a great time getting to know these amazing hosts and can't wait to host them in the states at some point. The thought that went into every detail was evident at every turn. And their dog Finn was adorable!! Truly a gem of a place!!

    Dori2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Tide Nine was amazing. The studio was spacious and clean. The best part were our hosts, Judi and David. We enjoyed our time with them. Their hospitality was unimaginable! The home is right on the beach. The pool was so refreshing after a long day of touring this beautiful part of Australia. Our only regret is we couldn’t stay longer. Thank you for everything!

    Beverly2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Top quality stay. Very accommodating and caring. Judi and David gave us all we could ask for in a home away from home. The place was amazing. Clean, modern and perfect location away from cairns city bit still so close by car. We both highly recommend anyone to visit one off the two vaccinations houses they have to offer in cairns. You will not be disappointed. Thanking you both again for the pleasant stay. Shaun and Bella..

    "La Flotte" is an Award Winning Luxury Ocean Front Home - set in the idyllic tropical village of Machans Beach. We are just north of Cairns, in a unique coastal destination situated between The Great Barrier Reef and Rain Forest.
    We are delighted that you have chosen our beach house - “La Flotte" - for your well-earned vacation. We just know that you will fall in love with our special spot in Tropical North Queensland. Through time spent travelling as a family, we discovered two locations, in opposing hemispheres that we were drawn to. Machans Beach, the sleepy beachside fishing village in Tropical North Queensland - and La Flotte, a UNESCO World Heritage seaside village on the French Atlantic island of Il De Re'. We can't be in two places at once - so we have brought some of La Flotte to our house in Machans Beach. Much of the decor, furniture, fittings, linen and artwork have travelled halfway around the world, to find their home at Machans Beach. We hope you enjoy them! Perhaps most fitting of all though, is the constant fleet of vessels, by day and by night, out on the horizon of the Coral Sea to keep you company during your stay here. We know them as La Flotte - or - The Fleet. La Flotte was completed in 2015! La Flotte at Machans Beach has been designed to effectively use passive heating and cooling. Features such as an elevated floor, high ceilings and louvre windows throughout enable this. Most importantly you are located in the ideal position to experience optimal enjoyment from the stunning coastal breeze. In addition to these design features – ceiling fans and reverse cycle air conditioning units are provided for your comfort. You will have full access to the Wi-Fi internet service. During your stay, you will have access to a fully equipped chef's kitchen. A four burner BBQ is located on the front deck adjacent to the (website hidden) utensils are located in the BBQ cabinet, and operation instructions are printed on the BBQ. Our crystal blue salt water swimming pool is cleaned and maintained constantly for your enjoyment. You will find the temperature remains wonderfully comfortable year round. When you arrive for your stay – your comfortable beds will be made up for you! Each guest will also be provided with a towel for bathroom use and a towel for pool use outside. During your stay, you will have access to a fully equipped laundry, with large front loader washer, sensor dryer and laundry tub. We hope you enjoy our garden! Depending on the time of the year – you will see our garden take on a distinct character – often attracting various local fauna. If you have one or more cars – you will be able to park on-site.
    Here in Machans Beach you are nestled on a narrow coastal strip between The Great Barrier Reef and The Great Dividing Range rain forest. Creating a most unique and desirable tropical destination. By car you are five minutes from Cairns International Airport and ten minutes from the city of Cairns to the south or the local hub of Smithfield to the north. Further afield the international resort destination of Palm Cove and the hinterland community of Kuranda are only 25 minutes by car. Embark on a 45 minute journey north along the Captain Cook Highway, and you will reach the vibrant destination of Port Douglas.
  • She’s very kindness and quick response. We had really good time. Thank you very much for the best hospitality!!

    Toyama2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place to explore the Cairns area from. The house is large, open and very convenient. 10 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes to the Skyrail and 20 minutes from town. And, it was great to return from a day in the sun and be able to jump into the pool. Great place.

    Tony2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful home with plenty of comfy space and facilities. Very stylish great outside space and perfect location. View to the sea in s wonderful and a great breakfast cafe and a good bar within a few mins walk.

    Hector2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The home is beautiful and spacious. There are local restaurants within walking distance and the strip is only about a 15 min drive. Sylvia was quick to respond and when we had an issue with one of the air conditioners it was fixed promptly. The view of the beach was amazing. The pool was great! We had a large adult group and everyone loved the home.

    Come to a home in KURANDA rainforest reserve. A room is ready for a generous price!
    The large open plan legal dwelling house, is as yet unfinished but very comfortable with all modern amenities. The rainforest reserve gives sights, sounds, smells and good feelings - all part of the experience. Two can sleep here, three if you are quiet. The kitchen and bathroom are simple but work well. Time in the outdoors or on the verandas is time well spent.
    Words cannot describe the neighbourhood and magical forests, rivers, roads, walks, farms and area. It's alive, living and giving. Come help, heal or harmonize with the environment. The Great Barrier Reef is close and Tablelands even closer for wonderful stay and play. I have concise brouchures and info re activities available, but the Information Centre in Kuranda is first class, so design your time as you wish.
  • Elizabeth’s place is nestled into the rainforest bordered by a new and extensive vege patch and an open space that surrounds the house. At the back of the property there is rainforest with crude walking tracks . If you want something more formal there are many many tracks within walking distance or a short drive. The night forest noises are amazing. The room is private and quiet. Elizabeth’s dogs, Lloyd and Isabelle are happy to play with you if you choose - they are super friendly. Elizabeth is a treasure, a genuine, generous and lovely person it is worth spending some time to get to know , but if you seek a quiet time with personal space she would happily accommodate. If you are seeking a 5 star hotel experience you’ve gone to the wrong place. If however, you seek a more than personable experience in the forest close to Kuranda township and markets and all the wonder and peace rainforest life can bring - Elizabeth’s place is a tonic.

    Simon2020-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is big and in the rainforest. You can have a seat on the balcony to enjoy forest. All green and not too hot. Just relaxing yourself in Elizabeth's place.

    Zash2020-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • If you want the ultimate accommodation experience with a very unique, lovely , peace loving, dog loving, garden loving host then this is your stay :) (and it’s cheap!)

    Stephen2020-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeths place is amazing. Its a rural setting with the designs of being a working farm. The wallaby grazing the yard in the morning was delightful as well as sleeping with the sounds of the jungle reverberating! This is NOT a place for everyone. If you are looking for that 5 star luxury resort atmosphere, go somewhere else. If you are looking to support local people in their real life, then look no further. The room that she has set aside for guests is safe, private and exceptionally clean. I found, though, i enjoyed the veranda out from the kitchen most, as well as Elizabeth's company. What a amazing woman she is! The bathroom is still being finished but is very serviceable and private. I loved the design she is working on. Again, this is not for those that want a pristine, postcard experience, but for those of us who love to experience the life of those that live there...day to day! THANK YOU Elizabeth for an exceptional experience!

    Marla2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth's house is still a work in progress, but very comfortable and hospitable to stay in.

    Steve2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth is house is made to life in. The forest is all around with hidden spots that you must go and look for. Elizabeth and doggies are warm and make you feel at home. House is beautifull, but not yet finished, but if you are searching for a nice, personal stay, then we can recommend a lovely stay at Elizabeth’s.

    Angela2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We stay like a week here. Private place and fresh air. Great location, close from Kuranda Market and Cairns. Good value. Helpful host and love the dogs. This place is pet friendly, I brought my kitten and Elizabeth welcome us nicely. Thank you Elizabeth.❤️

    Cindy2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Elizabeth is a kind hearted and willing person. She helped us a lot in planning our trips and gave us some really good advice. This little gem in the Kuranda rainforest is well worth the trip.

  • I dreamt about this place longtime before to get in! And honestly I had a blast ! The place was beyond my expectations. Everything is cared in all details . I adored the tub outside close to the turtle and lizards and the little adorable green frogs 🐸 in front of the dining area in the garden . I really had great time there and fully recovered and relaxed . And I was able to walk to the city as the pad is very close to the esplanade.

  • Bonita is a great host. It is precisely during these special days, when uncertainty in the world, Bonita agreed to host us. The place is excellent, the location facing the sea creates a calm atmosphere and helps the soul to relax. The apartment is well equipped, has everything, luxurious, spacious and very comfortable. Bonita checked every day to make sure we were okay, satisfied and not missing anything in the apartment. I would highly recommend Bonita's apartment and heartfelt gratitude for her wonderful hospitality Eliav Ziv

  • We all enjoyed our stay at Bonita & Ronnie’s beach front cabin. The location was superb being so close to the beach and the cooling sea breeze. Bonita was such a kind and attentive host and treated us like true guests. The accommodation was comfortable and clean with many thoughtful touches, which made us feel completely at home!

    Andy2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was the best experience, I ever had with airbnb , excellent , friendly hosts , exceeded our expectations in all aspects , excellent location, direct ocean access, and the view is breathtaking, the house is sparkling clean , modern , they take care of all the small details, everything was really perfect, for sure I highly recommend it , and if there is a chance I love to see them again , we felt like being with our own family,

    Maher Joseph2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita's place is beautiful, peaceful, and a perfect place to relax in Holloways Beach with a private piece of beach and a swimming pool. The spacious studio was perfectly clean, fully equiped with all you need, air conditioning, beach towels, sunscreen, mosquito repellent, water for entire week... Bonita was a wonderful host and made us feel like home. We wouldn't change a thing. Thank you very much!

    Réda2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly like the pictures--this is a beautiful beachside loft that could fit a large family easily and provided access to the beach all with Bonita and her family's wonderful hospitality. Just 15 minutes from Cairns means it was close enough to go there for dinner but far enough to feel authentic, not touristy, and peaceful away from the bustle of Cairns downtown. The space was spotless upon arrival and host immediately available to help. Would return again, thanks!

    Stephanie2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita’s place is amazing! The location is great (between Cairns cbd and Palm Cove, 15-20min drive). The house is located right next to the beach, in a very lovely neighborhood. The studio ha/ everything a traveller needs. It has a very nice balcony with amazing view and an ocean breeze is blowing 24/7. We had dinner and breakfast there and it was much better than any fancy restaurant view! But the real perks of this place is the host themselves! Bonita and Roni are amazing, super friendly people. We even got invited to their nye party! Bonita really went out of her way as a host. We had our laundry done but when we went down to pick it up, our laundry was already in the dryer. Next time we came down to pick the fresh laundry up, everything was already nicely folded! If we are coming to Cairns, we are definitely staying at Bonita’s place again!

    Milan2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best Airbnb’s I’ve ever stayed in. From the moment you get there, you’re greeted into their home, while all the time feeling safe, welcomed, and taken care of. I highly recommend Bonita’s place to anyone visiting Cairns or the surrounding area.

    Austin2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Bonita was great. She fulfilled our wishes and was very hospitable. It was great. The accommodation is clean and well furnished. We felt totally comfortable. We can recommend it to everyone.

  • Great location: walking distance to beach, multiple restaurants, and bottle-o.

    Charles2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved that there were basic supplies in the pantry which was really helpful. It was great for 7 people and we loved the pool and the huge outdoor area so much. Especially because We didn’t realise that Cairns beaches were pretty much a no go for swimming (crocodiles) but they are pretty to look at and walk along. The Holloway’s Beach foreshore parks are gorgeous and so nicely maintained. The two bathrooms were really handy for 7 of us and the outdoor one which is combined with the laundry is just a couple of steps from the kitchen so easy to use day and night. Rachel replies to email virtually immediately and was so helpful and friendly. She is the perfect host and made our stay so delightful and easy.

    Donna2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • A great house with a great location - minutes ealk to fantastic cafe and pizza and local store and beach 1 block away. We had a great stay. House was clean, loved the pool and the open living. Kevin and Rachel are great hosts with great communication and quick responding.

  • What a great stay. Super close to the airport. Quiet area right next to the botanical gardens. The room was nice and clean. Angela met me downstairs and gave me the quick tour of the place. Would definitely stay again next time I’m in town!

    Shayne2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • While I was there, Rita's friend Angela was housesitting and was handling guests in her absence. She was lovely, very accommodating and made me feel welcome as well as offered local tips on where to go. She kept the place super clean and even drove me to my next airbnb. Really had a nice stay there. The place was great as well! Very modern and spacious. :)

    Karrah2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The hosts and their apartment made me love Cairns even more. I hope to visit Cairns and stay in this room again:)

    Lisa2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very stylish and clean. It is directly next to the Botanical Gardens so it was like having the Rainforest in the back yard. It's walking distance a small market, a steak restaurant and a some convenient stores. Great location and great hospitality.

    Jacqui2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Rita and Manu are very, very good value for money, convenient, and bikes are available, but because we rented a car, we did n’t ride. Manu helped us pick up two oversized and oversized suitcases. Today we went to the Great Barrier Reef to play. We need to leave early. Manu also drove us to the hotel to store our luggage and then sent it to the dock. We talked with them a lot about their hometown. Recommended recommendation, perfect score host! !! !!

    Debra2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time in Rita’s apartment and in Cairns. Rita is a great and friendly host with great knowledge and recommendations. The bikes, the pool and cooking area were amazing. We can 100% recommend this apartment and would definitely choose it again!

    Wiebke2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly what you want from an Airbnb! Lovely hosts, friendly and full of helpful tips on the surrounding area, very cool stylish space, super clean everywhere and a great location between the airport and city centre. One of our favourites!

    Kosta2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the hospitality, the bikes, the luggage storage… all makes me feel home. Rita is very enthusiastic, living in Cairns North, ten minutes to the dock Uber and 10 minutes to the Kuranda cable car station Uber. The bus station is 100 meters downstairs and there is a convenience store next to it. Great value accommodation, super clean and convenient. Rita also borrowed a bicycle to give us a night tour of Cairns, it was great.

    Julie2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully appointed unit with a fabulously comfortable bed. Dylan and Kellie were more than helpful with all requests and located so centrally to all local attractions.

    Julie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Dylan and Kellie are wonderful hosts. The location is perfect as it's not too far from the city, and is so close to the botanic gardens, cute shops and fantastic hikes. They were incredibly accommodating and had fantastic tips for exploring Cairns and the surrounding area. The space is new and has modern, clean lines, air conditioning and fans (much appreciated considering the heat and humidity) and was a joy to stay in. The only slight downside were some bugs, which I believe is unavoidable for that area and climate, but bug killer was already provided and they didn't bother us.

    Emma2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it !! Super cute place. Dylan and kellie were so nice and their dog is awesome 👍

    Enjoy a unique beach styled bungalow surrounded by stunning rainforest trees and exotic palms. Eco-friendly, creative, light and spacious, opening onto a secluded garden courtyard at the base of a giant rainforest pine. Indoor/outdoor bathroom. Butterflies and birdsong. It's located in a lovely beach village close to Cairns and a short walk to the beach.
    Situated in a rainforest garden under the canopy of giant rainforest trees which are inhabited by lots of exotic birds. A unique and attractive beach styled bungalow, it has a creative, natural and peaceful ambience apealing to those who love living close to nature. It is private and fully self contained offering a lovely tropical getaway holiday experience. The main bedroom provides a quality comfortable Q/S bed furnished with pure cotton bedding. The windows beside the bed open onto the courtyard and to view tropical palms and giant rainforest trees against the beautiful blue of the sky. There is a daybed which offers comfortable additional sleeping and provision for a 4th person can also be arranged. * Bath towels and beach towels are provided. There are plenty of drawers and a large walk in cupboard for you to unpack your things. The kitchen/dining area is separate from the bedroom and is fully equipped with a fridge, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, cook top, microwave and everything you need to prepare fresh and wholesome holiday meals. The courtyard, at the base of a giant rainforest Milky Pine, is furnished with an outdoor dining setting inviting unique tropical dining during the morning, day, or under the stars and the moonlight at night. The accommodation offers its own tropical indoor/outdoor bathing which is accessed just outside your door and across the private little courtyard. To shower (with hot and cold water) looking out into the rainforest is a wonderful option to a conventional bathroom and a uniquely tropical experience! Butterflies and sun birds play amongst the flowers and in the rainforest canopy which with a sea breeze, keeps the accommodation pleasantly cool and comfortable all year round. The tropical garden canopy also offers a cool retreat and fans provide any extra breeze that may be required. * Air conditioning is only available in the hotter summer months of December to March/April Rainbow lorikeets, sulphur crested cockatoos, black cocatoos, kookaburras and the Torres Straight pigeons are just some of the many birds you may enjoy as they play and feed in the overhead canopy.
    Machans beach is an attractive and friendly coastal village situated 15 minutes north of Cairns, nestled in behind the cane fields. It has been untouched by commercial tourism and retains much of north Queensland's original charm. Very safe, it is lovely to walk everywhere, especially early mornings and evenings along the Esplanade which is fringed with coconut palms. A walk through the shaded 'Dungarra' Nature Reserve is lovely and highly regarded by bird watching groups viewing over 130 different species - including the colourful Paradise Kingfisher. The nearby river is a popular fishing place with many Aboriginal and Islanders net fishing ....also for sand pipers and sometimes the pelicans! There is a waterfront restaurant and bar for evening meals which is in easy walking distance. The restaurant/bar entertains 'happy hour' between 4-6 pm while the sun sets and the birds fly home across the ocean horizon. There is an early morning / day time cafe (7am- 3 pm), a general store, post office, and fuel station - all are open every day.
  • Would want to say thanks to annie for being a great hostess, going above and beyond!! Helping with booking boat trip and little tips on things to do and skin care, major thanks for the thoughtful little gift for my partners birthday. Annie was very informative about the local area and when to go to certain activities. Felt like a home away from home.

    Bear2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful and unique place to stay! Definitely would want to stay here again the next time we are in town!!!

    Shawn2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying here. Annie was a fantastic and very helpful host. She booked an amazing tour for us of the GBR and had lots of wonderful advice on what to see and do on our last few days in Australia. The Airbnb has a very calm outdoorsy vibe to it, which we loved. We even found a cute tree frog in our outdoor shower one night and saw a few geckos in our room, which were all part of the “where the forest meets the ocean” experience. As we didn’t have a car, we used public transportation to get into Cairns and to visit Palm Cove (to the north). The bus stop is very conveniently located, only a two minute walk away. Even the bus drivers were very helpful, making sure we got off at the right location. There is a great pub nearby but it closes early and it was closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (at least when we were there) so you will have to plan accordingly.

    Dana2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful apartment. Annie is adorable and will give you the best advice of activities to do in the area. I will return without hesitation

    Jonathan2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely little spot to chill out for the afternoon & get a good night's sleep before an early morning flight. We only stayed one night but would love to have stayed longer! Everything you need for a comfy stay, an easy walk to the local pub for delicious food by the water & the outdoor shower is just perfect for the warmer climate, loved cooling down after a long day. We all (4) slept well in the comfy beds, really peaceful & quiet.

    Margot2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for the reception, it was great!! We really enjoyed our stay and would come again. You are a great host!

    Felipe2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Annie's place is your perfect beach home with thoughtful touches , sparkling cleanliness and amazing hospitality. She also helped us book best reef tour and sky dive at great rates. 03 of us travelled to Cairns and Clearly one of our best Airbnb stays till date. Bank on Annie for every adventure you may seek in Cairns :) . Thanks Annie.

    Vivek2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • It was super-lovely staying at Annie's place. We loved the chats and the great tips she gave us for what to do in the area. Most loved feature was the outdoor bathroom under the tropical trees!

    Machans Beach, QLD, Australia

    A single room with a king-single bed in a charming high-set queenslander house located within minutes of the airport and only a 10 minute drive to the city. I am normally available for airport pickup/drop at no extra charge. The tropical garden is a relaxing place to rest from your travels and there is a pool that you are welcome to use. If you love to walk in the rain forest, access to the 'Arrow' walking tracks is just around the corner. I have an 11 year old staffy x dog with a gentle nature.
    I live a relaxed life style so I consider my home to be your home too while you are here. You are welcome to use the kitchen, living areas and downstairs laundry at any time (no additional charges) . As I live so close to the rain forest, I am occasionally lucky enough to share my home with some cute wildlife - particularly green tree frogs and geckos. If you fear small creatures then this space is probably not going to be suitable for you as I am unable to control when they come and go.
    The neighbourhood is a small residential suburb with mostly older style character homes. A cafe/homeware/plants/books shop has just opened up in an old wooden building next door to my house and is proving to be popular with the locals. It is the only commercial building in the street.
  • Alisons property was exactly as described. I booked on behalf of one of my staff that was displaced due to COVID19 & Alison went the extra mile to make her feel welcome. Thank you so much Alison!

    Kylie2020-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • Alison is very easy going and enjoys meeting people. Airport pickup and dropoff very handy. Bus stop right outside and most importantly a very quiet room.

    Richard2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • I had a fantastic time and relaxed stay at Alison her house. When I arrived in the evening at Cairns Airport, she was so nice to pick me up and prepared a nice meal wich was so welcoming after a long day of travels. Alison is super nice and easy to talk to. Also the dog of her is so cute. I loved spending some chill time at the pool and watching some wild life at the veranda. It s a handy location, super near the airport and the busstop is right across the road from her house wich take you to Cairns central in 10 min. Too bad she was already fully booked except for 2 dates left. Otherwise i woulde stay a little longer :) Thank you Alison for creating a home far away from home...

    Maryanne2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful & peaceful spot that Allison ensures feels like home. She even went out of her way to take me to the airport! I highly recommend this place for recharging your batteries and enjoying the tropical north.

    Meleika2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • As many others reported - the place was lovely, Alison was lovely and most importantly - Flossy was my hero :) She is very sweet. Alison was kind enough to set me up in the A/C room also to keep me nice and cool :)

    Chris2020-03-02T00:00:00Z

  • If you're the type to be out and about, and only have the expectation of needing a place to sleep then this will fulfill it. For the price and location it does the job. There is air conditioning, which is great for the hot weather in Cairns. The place is really close to everything and the terminal to the reef. The building is a little outdated and the shared bathrooms does require you to use your key each time you enter it and appears like a public bathroom with the stalls. Since I was out most of the time anyways it did not bother me too much, but do consider if you want a place to recharge during the day and something a bit more comfortable. For me I was satisfied since I prefer to save money so I can have more to play.

We are welcoming and respectful of your privacy. Cairns is a fantastic tropical city to visit or live. It is filled with loads of day activities, great restaurants and a fun nightlife. We live close enough to the city, esplanade and waterfront lagoon, Marlin Marina and Rusty's Markets for you to walk.
    Staying this close to Cairns Central everything is close by; KFC and McDonald's / McCafe are just down the road, great sushi place on Sheridan St, and easy to get Chinese Takeout on McLeod St. And there's always Cairns Central Shopping Centre with supermarket, food courts, cafes, and the cimena's. Walking around town at night is fine, stay on the main lighted roads and McDonald's is open 24 hours. However it is not recommended to walk home alone in the very early hours of the morning. Best to get a cab.
  • Great private accommodation for the weary traveller. Ample comfort in both the bedroom and common areas

  • A place that has what you do need and doesn't bother with what you don't need. Terrific location, friendly service at an outstanding price.

    Calvin2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • I had a lovely stay! Communication was excellent.

    Maddie2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • Great value and good location. Richard went out of his way to let me leave my stuff in his office for an extra day and then collect it in the evening. Even though he was out on the boat with limited service, communication was spot on as he would always get back to me. Remember to lock your room before leaving as the front gate lacks a lock. Overall, positive experience and would consider again.

  • I loved my experience at this airbnb. Grant and Carlene are really happy, welcoming and warm people. They have so many tips on great things to do in Cairns. This was the perfect place to stay for a relaxing retreat. The house was always very clean and organized. The room I stayed in was impeccably clean and very comfortable. The views from the veranda are breathtaking and its so relaxing having a dip in the plunge pool to cool down! I think this is one of my favourite Airbnb experiences because Grant and Carlene were such kind and beautiful people. Thank you for sharing your home with me! :)

  • Great value and comfortable accommodation in a good location. Jade is an impeccable host responds to queries quick smart and is very friendly and helpful. Thank you for my stay Jade 😀

  • Very nice apartment, fifteen minutes walk to the beach, not far from there is a particularly delicious Thai food.

    2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Jade's apartment was clean and tidy, with a comfy bed, great TV, good kitchen and modern bathroom. Really close to public transport and the city and very close to the Botanic Gardens, which we loved. Jade was really easy to reach and very helpful and friendly when we asked her anything... we were very happy with our stay in Jade's apartment.

    Audrey2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at Jade’s place was great! Very clean, easy to check in and come and go from the apartment. Lots of hotels in the area that tours can easily pick-up from if you don’t rent a car (which I didn’t, though there’s tons of parking if you do!). Internet was pretty spotty the whole time I was there so I wouldn’t rely on it for work if you need strong internet. It was a wonderful stay, it’s easy to recommend!

    Kathryn2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Super cozy studio! Nice, neat, and clean! Jade was very communicative and accommodated us as much as possible. The instructions to check in and out were easy to follow. We rented a car the day we arrived and we were able to park it on-site. The WiFi worked great. The location is about a 10 minute drive to the harbor for Great Barrier Reef excursions and a 20 minute drive from the Kuranda railway.

    Raquel2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Jade was a very accommodating host who made me feel very welcome and looked after. His apartment was clean and had everything I needed to enjoy my stay in Cairns. I can highly recommend him and his apartment to anybody.
