Outstanding B&B accommodation with outstanding hosts, with great attention to detail. The property is very well maintained and rooms/facilities are very clean. Marlies and Bruno were very knowledgeable and informative about the area and local affairs. The great selection of fruit every morning with breakfast were an absolute treat. The area was very quiet and access to public transport is... More

We had a great time while in Cairns and at Kookas. Even though Marlies and Bruno were not there, they had Miwa & Heinz as substitutes and they were great. They helped us in every way possible. The room was very comfortable. The breakfasts were beyond expectations, but the best part was Miwa and Heinz - extremely charming and friendly... More

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.
