This family home is spacious and guests have access to a modern kitchen upstairs, kitchenette downstairs, a large timber deck overlooking a tropical garden, three separate lounge areas – one upstairs and two downstairs. One of the lounge areas has been set up as a reading room/quiet area. The downstairs area contains a pool table, TV, DVD, two home office areas and wireless internet. With three bathrooms and six bedrooms, this large and very comfortable home that can easily accommodate up to 10 people with quiet areas available.
The home is well positioned only 4 km from the CBD, 2 minutes’ walk to public transport and 5 minutes’ walk to a large shopping centre where you can purchase just about anything you need. Guests have easy access to street parking. The airport is a short 15 minute drive and transfers to and from the airport can be arranged.
We have two rooms to choose from, both separated from the main house allowing for quiet and privacy to come and go as you please. The first is a double room configured to accommodate a couple (double bed) and one child or travelling companion (1 single). This room has a queen bed, beside tables with lamps, desk, a chest of drawers, TV, ceiling fans and air-conditioning. The second single room contains a large cupboard, dresser, desk, bedside table with lamps, fan and air-conditioning.
We are long time residents in Cairns – I am a psychologist and love working with people and Kerry is an engineering surveyor and visual artist. We are happy to share our local knowledge, stories, and home with you. Our youngest daughter (11) lives at home, is active and sporty and attends a local school. We welcome families with children and, for an additional cost and some notice, would be pleased to light up the Barbeque for an easy and delicious meal after a day out sightseeing. Our upstairs deck overlooks a leafy green garden, has views of the mountains, and is a great place for dinner and a glass of wine while enjoying the cool of the evening.
We enjoy sharing our hospitality with others and look forward to meeting you soon!
