“Wonderful Holidays”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We enjoyed a lovely holiday at the Kookas. Our room, the service, the breakfast and the beautiful view, everything was perfect. We traveled several weeks through Australia, but this was the best place to stay and the best breakfast: fresh fruits and self made bread.

Right from the booking stages through to our stay and organisation of tours, Marlies and her crew were very professional and highly accommodating in every way, from organising tours to providing early breakfast before a tour began. The atmosphere was superb, very quiet and peaceful. If you are a nature lover, you will enjoy being woken in the morning by the call of the kookaburras that live in the surrounds. An overall great experience.

Stayed a few days at Kookas B&B and hated to leave. Clean spacious rooms and freshly baked bread and all kinds of fresh tropical fruit for breakfast with an astonishing view over Cairns in the morning light. The hostess is very helpfull and will cater all your needs within her capacity. Can highly recommend a stay at this place to explore the region

Staying at Kookas with my daughter was everything we could ask for in a Bed and Breakfast. Our host, Marlies, and her helpers went over and above the call of duty to make our stay the best it could be. The breakfasts were excellent! Evening meals (you need to book a day ahead) were delicious and very affordable. Our room was very clean and comforatable and had everything we needed. The view from our balcony was beautiful. In terms of location, we were able to walk to restaurants, Cairns Botanic Gardens and a nearby trail that overlooks the ocean. i would recommend Kookas to any one!

We made Kookas our home base for a week in Cairns and it was amazing.

Marlies and her helpers made us feel completely at home and helped with arrangements for the various tourist activities.

Breakfasts were excellent - and healthy!

But the best feature is the atmosphere - being nestled on hill, with nothing but the Australian bush above the accomodations, each morning started with bursts of birdsong that continued all day and to dusk, where it was replaced with the night noises of the nocturnal wildlife.

I'd stay again in a heartbeat,

The wallabies still roam around and we wake up to the laughter of the Kookaburras.

My mum and I recently stayed at Kooka's for 4 nights, and very much enjoyed our time there. Marlies is an excellent host and we had dinner with her and her helpers on 2 of our nights there (most enjoyable). We felt very welcomed and comfortable and our room was very clean. We would definitely return and would recommend Kooka's to family and friends traveling to Cairns area.
