We arrived from Auckland and were met by Kim who had kindly agreed to pick us up from the airport. Their two friendly dogs greeted us as we drew up to the house but were very well behaved.
We were impressed by the comfort and privacy of our room which looked out over lovely gardens. We had ample storage for clothes,facilities to make tea and coffee in the room,and a large shower room with ample hot water. Kim offered us the use of the washing machine and an iron was available in the room.(Great when you have been travelling and would like to stop looking crumpled )
TV was available but we were too busy looking round to turn it on. Wireless internet reception was a bit temperamental.
Breakfast was served every morning on the veranda -tropical fruits, cereal and a selection of different breads to toast . A well equipped kitchen and barbeque were there for our use and we really appreciated being able to cook for ourselves sometimes. There were many leaflets about places of interest and tours available kept in this communal area along with some books about local birds and wildlife.
We were grateful to be able to have a swim in the pool in the garden (sensibly fenced off for child safety)
Kim was a very helpful host and dropped us in town to pick up a hire car.He arranged a couple of trips for us and was full of good advice about where to visit during our stay.
We were lucky enough to be able to stay longer than planned and will definitely stay here again if we return to Cairns
