We spent 6 nights in all at Kookas and would definitely return. From our free of charge 'pick up' at the airport we were thoroughly well looked after by Marlies and Bruno. Our room, nestled into the rainforest, high up with views across the district to hills in the background also had a lovely view from the shower! The room... More

Marlies and Bruno made us feel so welcome from the first moment we arrived - a regular home away from home. The breakfasts were a magnificent advertisement for the fruits of the tropics. They were also a mine of information about places to visit in the area. See you again soon.

An excellent B&B. Close to the city but away from the commotion. The view from the breakfast patio is spectacular !! Marlies and Bruno are wonderful hosts, and we could not have been happier. We highly recommend Kookas !!!

On the outskirts of Cairns this B&B is in a lovely position amongst a very lush garden. It is up an exceedingly steep drive which is not for the faint hearted, but worth it. Everything was done to perfection even to the extent of the Kookaburras sitting on the fence after breakfast. You will need to drive to restaurants etc.

We really enjoyed our stay with Bruno and Marlies. They are perfect host with lovely leisure time recommendations and the best breakfast I ever had. They were so kind to us, they brought us a smoothie when we enjoyed our time at the pool or on our terrasse and the view from the breakfast balcony was amazing. Thanks for this... More

We stayed at Kookas at the beginning of our three week first time visit to Australia and New Zealand. We couldn't have been happier that we chose Kookas. We stayed four nights and each morning we enjoyed the fabulous view from their deck as we ate tropical fruits, breads, cereal and sipped our coffee/tea. Marlies was extremely helpful in getting...
