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

I stayed with Cairns Sharehouse for 6 months while working for a diving school in Cairns. The apartment I stayed in was clean, comfortable and ideally situated (close to pubs, shopping center and work) but I was even more impressed with the quality of service: nice, friendly and efficient staff. Everything is included: electricity, house cleaning, wifi... no hassle, just... More

I stayed in one of the share houses for 4 weeks while I went to an English language school. It was a great time! The location of the share house was perfect, everything (city center, esplanade, nightlife) in walking distance, no need for taxis or public transport so you can save some money. It was always clean and quiet, never... More

I am staying in Cairns sharehouse with my boyfriend, we have only been here a few weeks but we settled in after 1 day! We wanted to stay in one place while we do our working visa & the main reason we even chose Cairns was because of the sharehouse. We wanted a home from home while we lived in... More

I'm a German backpacker on my 2nd year Visa, staying in Cairns for more than 8 months to live and work. Cairns Sharehouse is the perfect accommodation for this! You have your own room to a fair price in a nice accommodation. The room was perfectly clean when I checked in, the staff is extremely helpful, friendly and really worried... More
