The SpaceOur home is situated in Whitfield, a lovely leafy suburb in the northwest of Cairns, only a 10 mins drive from Cairns CBD and airport, with a quiet and very friendly neighbourhood. Our place has a very calming and relaxing atmosphere, allowing you to kick back, unwind and just be. The house is a queenslander style two story home. The guest apartment is on the ground floor and has its own separate entrance at the rear of the house. The apartment has just been refurbished and features beautifully appointed artwork, reflecting our dream of living in the tropics come true. The apartment comprises 2 bedrooms, both air conditioned, with a queensize bed each, and a kitchen and bathroom. It comfortably fits 4 guests. The fully equipped kitchenette (bar fridge, hot plates, microwave, tea kettle & toaster) allows for self catering. The adjoining stylish dining room setting offers a perfect space to enjoy your home cooked meals or take aways together. The bathroom has a shower and toilet. For us, living in Cairns means living in tune with nature and it is a great joy to share this experience with our guests. This is why we created a cozy outdoors space with hammocks and plenty of lounge space to relax amidst a lush and stunning tropical garden. Awaken to the songs of the birds and start your day with a session of tai chi or yoga or have a delicious breakfast (continental breakfast included in the price/tropical fruit from our garden subject to availability) whilst watching the birds and butterflies play in the sun.

Other Things to NoteAs with most tropical destinations there is dengue fever in Cairns. You would be highly unlucky to get it but we like to do everything possible to avoid it anyway. It is good to bring some insect repellant containing DEET (don't worry if you can't as we always have some here) and avoid the stripey day time mosquitos which are the only ones that carry the virus. Thanks to science 84% of the dengue mosquitos in this area are no longer able to transmit dengue to people.

Interaction with GuestsChris and I work from home and will be around most of the time.

An established area with loads of mature trees and tropical vegetation it looks the part of a tropical haven. Importantly it's just far enough away from the sea, not to be bothered by sand-flies and our elevated location minimises the mosquitoes (found in abundance in the flatter areas near the creeks). We are also lucky to be located right at the start of the new Green Arrow Walking Track, if you like to walk and explore, you will love this walk which joins the famous Red and Blue Arrow Walking Tracks in Edge Hill.

Kitchen staples such as salt pepper, cooking oil, balsamic vinegar, condiments, butter etc are provided for your convenience. Our home is a free standing home (not an apartment) so only one space with 1 group of guests at a time. There is a private annexe off the house that has been locked off from the rest of the house. I do sometimes stopover if I can't return back to my farm or I have business to do in Cairns. But mostly I leave guests to their own devices and space. I am able to help guests with questions or advice over the phone. Interaction with GuestsMost guests will have the use of the house for their exclusive use. We have a farm that is on the Atherton Tablelands, which means there is always work to do. After welcoming guests and answering any questions, you have a comfortable home to relax in and make your base whilst visiting the region.

I can assist with your transport arrangements, if needed. It is important that guests have a telephone that they can be reached upon. Wifi in Australia is not available in as many places as you may expect. Though it is getting better.

The NeighborhoodOur hillside location is among typical Queenslander style homes. Expect leafy streetscapes and a quiet area convenient to visit the Botanic Gardens and The Tanks art precinct. The access to the airport, quick commute into town all the while a green landscape makes the Edge Hill area desirable for residents and visitors alike. We are spoilt for choice near our home.

Getting AroundTransport from airport is by taxi about 10 min. Only $20-$25 AUD to our home. The only alternative is a shuttle bus that will take you to City Hotels. But as our house is closer to airport, this is uneconomical. Buses (Sunbus) are a 300m walk away. Taking passengers to city centre. Bus stop will be marked on map available. Other Things to NoteIf you are flying to Cairns and arriving on a morning flight you will have to consider that as my home can be fully booked throughout the high season your arrival at the home is limited to checkin time of 3pm. If you require the home from early morning and it is available the day before I suggest you book the night before your arrival. This home is a single dwelling full sized house of which there are no duplicates. So early checkin is almost invariably NOT available. As this impacts on guests leaving on which check out time is 11am. The time in between allows for a thorough clean and turnover subject to the level of cleanliness left. Please consider how you will fill in time and suggest heading into town to the Pier and Information Centre. Swimming at Lagoon a favourite. Some tours are good to do on the first day of arrival such as Skyrail and Kuranda Rail. Fittzroy Island ferry leaves at 9.30am Green Island leaving at 9am or 1pm. We are always happy to share our knowledge of the area. We are still always wanting to explore and experience the beauty of the area.

If we don't know ourselves we can find out. Breakfast essentials are provided to get you started in the morning.

Just two hours drive north is The Daintree Rainforest, the oldest rainforest in the world. There are the Northern Beaches, including Palm Cove. There is Port Douglas and Mossman Gorge, and there are the Tablelands and all they have to offer. We have secure off street parking for one guest vehicle, although parking in the street is quite safe in this area. Other Things to NoteI enjoy cooking and entertaining so, with prior notice and for an additional charge, I would be willing to cook one delicious evening dinner for guests to enjoy on our deck, looking at the lights, and listening to the night sounds from the rainforest. The house has many steps and different levels and does not have wheelchair access. It is also not really suitable for young children.

The SpaceI live in a town house, 5 minutes from the beautiful Cairns Botanic Gardens and and its Red and Blue Arrow walking tracks for the fitness buffs amongst you. My townhouse is 4 kms from City Centre with a bus stop right outside the door. The Esplanade is only a couple of kms away. My place is simple but I love it. It's got a little court yard where I'm trying to grow some herbs and lettuce and stuff. I consider myself a 'Greenie' and am into recycling and generally trying to conserve resources. I have a worm farm in my court yard for compost. The guest room has 2 single beds that could also be put together into a double bed. Edge Hill is a great trendy little community with lots of coffee shops, restaurants, post office, news agency and Friendly Grocer all in walking distance. I am also only 5-10 minutes away from the airport and am happy to pick you up if it fits in with my work hours. Oh and free wifi of course and lots of info and things to do.
