Great staff, so helpful in every way and totally worth every penny. I loved the sharehouse and it had everything you could need for a comfortable living environment. They have accommodation to suit all.

The staff is very friendly, helpful and always available. Their houses are secure and cleaned regularly. Good place to stay. The prices are a bit high but for that price you get all you would want. Compared to other sharehouses in Cairns I think they are the best overall. Thank you CSH!

I loved this sharehouse as soon as I moved in, 4 months ago. The staff was helpful, that was well-situated, I loved the pool, the BBQ and the vegetation around, I told many friends to move in because I thought that was the perfect place to live. That why 8 of my friends moved in: fist Camille and Julie that... More

Thank you for your feedback and it was disappointing to hear your version of events. Despite us doing our best to accommodate you, your friends, and offering to upgrade you to a luxury budget double room for free, it was a shame to see that you did not finish your 4 month stay with us on a positive note.

If the prices, location and quality of accommodation don't sell it to you, the friendly, efficient staff should. I stayed in 2 of their properties for a total of nearly 3 months and the guys in the office did everything they could to ensure both stays were as comfortable as possible. The longer term nature of the tenancies means you... More

Thank you for your kind review.

I stayed at both the sharehouse on minnie street and draper street (a month in each house). The service i received throughout both months was exceptional.The staff were so friendly and helpful, all of them spent a long time making sure that my friend and i were well looked after. The value for money was incredible, not just the extent... More

I spent a month with Cairns Sharehouse and was looked after extremely well by the professional and caring staff. I booked as a scuba diving student who was in Cairns for a month. I was placed in a share house with other students which was clean and quiet and facilitated study. The location was near major shopping facilities and grocery... More

Thank you for your review. We have houses dedicated just for students (whether they be learning english, studying aviation, doing a dive course, TAFE/UNI etc) and this works pretty well as you get to live with a great mix of people who are focussed on their studies, but yet still enjoy the social aspect of sharing. I am so pleased... More

Hi, I'll start off by being one of those people who says 'I never review anything on here...' because this is my first review of anything on TripAdvisor. Cairns Sharehouse (CSH) is by far the best place to stay in Cairns by a country mile if you plan on staying there for a reasonable amount of time - which you... More

I lived in Cairns Sharehouse for 6 months in 2014 at the Martyn Street location. As a company they are lovely. The staff are wonderful and you can get lots of discounts for local activities. However, Martyn Street (and most Sharehouse locations) is in the sketchiest part of the city. It's strange, because it's really only a 10 minute walk... More
