“'Delightful studio and wonderful host'”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

Brinsmead Studio was a home away for me and my dog Bozie. The property is beautiful and the studio was very spacious, tidy and charming. Sue, the friendly the host thought of everything one may need on holiday so all i had to bring was my suitcase. It was important to me to find a place that could accommodate dogs and Brinsmead terraces certainly went above and beyond making me and my dog feel very welcome. I would highly recommend to anyone wanting good value accommodation, lovely surroundings and a great atmosphere.

My wife and I stayed at Brinsmead Studios in July 2012.
Our experience was truly amazing!
Sue (the host) is such a wonderful person: so welcoming, so caring, so helpful.

This is not your average accommodation, as you will feel special from the moment you meet her and her family.

The studio is very clean and cozy, surrounded by beautiful tropical vegetation.
If you want to be home away from home, Brinsmead Studios IS the place to stay :)

This quaint flat reminded me of the bed and breakfasts we have back in the States. The place is so charming and our host couldn't have been better! She even brought us snacks on occasion! We would highly recommend this stay

My husband, myself, two small children and a dog all enjoyed Brinsmead Studio very much. We were made to feel very welcome and were even greeted with a Christmas tree for the kids to decorate and enjoy for christmas. Sue and family were very helpful and accomidating and we always felt special and never in the way. We were looked after very well yet left to our own devices. We were close to everything we could possibly want and the view was breathtaking. It was the best accomidation we could have asked for and we go it on a family budget, which made it all the more enjoyable. I would recomend it small families and we will definatley be going back.

The studio was just perfect for me and my sister during our 1 week trip to Cairns. It has everything you need--complete cooking facilities, laundry area, comfortable beds, bathroom & shower, internet access, TV, a pool and most importantly a hospitable host.

We were welcomed by Sue who's such a nice person that we felt immediately at home.
We love the place since it gives us privacy and comfort. A really relaxing place to stay.
Will definitely stay there again when we go back to Cairns.
