Backpacking couple from the UK who wanted to meet new people without being stuffed in a dorm in a hostel. Cairns Sharehouse was everything we were looking for. We originally came in December 2013 for 2weeks and stayed at 22 Scott Street. Not expecting to end up back in Cairns, we returned to the sharehouse and ended up staying 3months.... More

I stayed at 67 MInnie in a larger, ground floor room with a microwave and small refrigerator. It was absolutely perfect for my needs. I could use the huge upstairs kitchen for cooking more complex meals.My room was spacious and the bed very comfortable. The garden area and little spa were lovely outside my patio was-a real bonus. I did... More

We planned to stay for 4 weeks. But we loved the sharehouse so much, that we've decided to stay for nearly 3 months! The house was very clean, we had enough privacy, nevertheless it was never boring. Also the Cairns Sharehouse staff was always very, very friendly and helpful. The location of the CSH was also perfect, because everythink war... More

I stayed in the Cairns Sharehouse for 10 months and I simply loved it there. I would highly recommended to anyone who comes to travel around, study or work to Cairns. The office staff was very friendly and always helpful. I lived at 8 Loeven Street where I hired a single room. The facility was beautiful with clean pool, just... More

Thanks for your review, it's great we were able to offer you a few flexible accommodation options during your time in Cairns. Lady Loeven is a lovely place and the pool is nice, especially being girls only. I am glad you also had the chance to enjoy a little bit of added luxury at the Queenslander with your partner -...

I recently moved to Cairns as I transferred with my job to this area from Mackay. It is virtually imposable to rent a permanent unit until you are living in a city as real estate agencies require you to physically inspect a property before they will rent it to you. That was the dilemma. Im not a backpacker or a... More

My boyfriend and I found the Cairns Sharehouse at the perfect time. Having had enough of hostels the sharehouse allowed us to have a home from home. The staff at the office were fantastic and very friendly. I spent many an hour on the computers (for a small fee) and riffling through their newspapers looking for jobs, the guys were... More

My partner and I are 31 and 29 year old Working Holidaymakers from the UK, and have stayed twice with Cairns Sharehouse over the last 2 years. We highly recommend them! For our most recent visit we chose a Category C property 'The Queenslander', as we already had jobs lined up and wanted a quieter house with fewer people. We... More

I stayed with Cairns-Sharehouse for 7 weeks! The apartment where I stayed was very nice and clean! It was near my English school so it was very convenient for me! Another good point was the staff, friendly and efficient! If one day I return in cairns, I ll stay in one of those apartment again!

Wow I have so many amazing memories - staying with Cairns Sharehouse was so much more than I imagined it to be! I moved from Melbourne to Cairns in 2009 to live/work/travel, and the first day that I arrived I felt that I became a part of the Cairns Sharehouse community. The team were very friendly and I felt welcomed... More
