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!

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
