We live in a very safe, friendly suburb 20 minutes drive north of the Cairns CBD. The house is opposite a tree-filled park and at the back is a creek and remnant rainforest. We are a modern family, as my 15 year old daughter lives in Melbourne with her mum so that she can study ballet and my 17 year old son and I live here in Cairns with the family dog, Opal, a Shitzu/Maltese cross. The house is spacious inside with three bedrooms and a 'sleep-out'. There's a swimming pool and gardens. 5 minutes walk down the street is the bus stop and 5 minutes more there is a little shopping centre with a lovely patisserie, shop, take-away, post office and hairdresser. The suburb is freshwater and from here you can catch the tourist train to Kuranda of ride a bike to beautiful rainforest rivers for a swim.

      The SpaceFreshwater is an established suburb in Cairns and is known for its safety, and landscaped setting and peacefulness. There are the usual amenities such as a small shopping centre with a mini mart, French patisserie /coffee shop, a butcher and the best fish and chips shop in Cairns. There are two great pubs in the adjoining suburbs, the Red Beret at Redlynch and the Stratford hotel. Freshwater is only a 10 minute drive into the city centre of Cairns. There is also a bus stop 100m down the road from my house. Recently the council completed a safe, wide concrete bicycle and walking path from Freshwater to the city and Esplanade. The Kuranda train stops at the Freshwater historic railway station, and the sky rail cable car is only a 10 minute drive away. The home is suitable for families, couples, small groups up to 6 people, and solo travellers looking for peace and quiet in beautiful surrounds.

They are a mature aged friendly couple, and will be able to assist with local knowledge of Cairns and surrounding districts and other things like how to operate the appliances in the house. etc. The NeighborhoodI have lived in Freshwater now for over 30 years and the thing that I like about the area is its safety, it's quiet amenity and lush evergreen tropical setting. All the amenities you need are within walking distance of the house, including good coffee shops, the butcher and baker and mini mart. Getting AroundFreshwater is connected to the main arterial roads in two directions; one that takes you into the city of Cairns , and the other that leads to Palm Cove, the northern beaches and Port Douglas, which is only about a 40 min drive from my house. There is also the Kuranda railway line that runs along side the open cane fields of Freshwater, stopping at the historic Freshwater station, to take bus loads of tourists on the scenic rail journey up the Barron gorge to the rainforest village of Kuranda. If your a biking enthusiast, there are numerous off road, safe, wide and level sealed bike paths, that take you into the city or up the Redlynch valley to Crystal Cascades, a popular summertime swimming hole. Other Things to NoteThe floor plan is all on one level off the garage, and is open planned, and enjoys cross ventilation from the prevailing breezes all year round,,,,,,And those tropical hot summer months, is also air-conditioned. In addition, there are ceiling fans in all rooms, and security/ insect screens to keep out insects . The large pool and covered outdoor patio also provides respite in the warmer months. It's a great entertainment area, and many a great dinner party has been held their in the past. There are kids toys ( from my kids and grandkids) that will save families lugging all that stuff with them on holidays. Sundry charges are as follows; a cleaning fee of $60 will apply in addition to the nightly rate, along with a $200 security deposit which is refundable after the house is cleaned on your departure, and everything is found to be satisfactory. While the house can accommodate 6 people, the nightly rate is for 4 people, and an additional charge of $25/person will apply for a full house.
