“A home away from home....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014

We found this accomodation through trip advisor after reading various reviews - we have just returned from an 8 night stay over xmas and new year and what can I say, it more than justifies a 5/5 score. Sue is incredible, we had lots of free range eggs, various cakes and fresh fruit! We will go back one day and if your looking for a relaxing getaway this comes highly recommended!

We have stayed here for the second time this year. The studio is impeccably clean, and has everything you could possibly need. The pool is lush and so refreshing after a hot day. Sue is just amazing, so helpful without being invasive. She really makes the stay something special. The beds are lovely and comfortable and there are two excellent parks nearby if you do bring your dog. Highly recommend this place, a home away from home.

I found Brinsmead Studios on the internet and they certainly looked very good. The actuality was even better. Sue, the owner, was very considerate of wanting to make sure that everything was just perfect for our stay. Her hospitality is something to be experienced! She was very friendly and welcoming, even providing many treats such as fresh free range eggs from her own chooks, to home grown fruit and even home baked cakes! The studio itself was very comfortable, all needs catered for and we felt ourselves relaxing from the moment of our arrival. Certainly recommend this studio to others. Our thanks to Sue for an enjoyable stay.

It took me ages to find an accommodation to stay in Cairns. There were a lot of hotels but I wanted to stay in holiday house and there were not many with an affordable price. I found Brinsmead Studios through http://www.cairnsholidayhomes.com.au and that was great! I stayed Brinsmead Studios with my parents for 5 nights. I was a bit worried about staying 3 adult in one room but beds were comfortable and the room were big enough for 3. The kitchen got loads of utensils and basically got everything for cooking. Sue the host was a great host and very welcoming. Brinsmead Studios had good access to Fresh water station if you want to catch a Kuranda train and it was closer to Port douglas. I was very very lucky that I could stay at Brinsmead Studios. Thank you Sue and Lizzie!

We stayed at Sue,s beautifull studio for 2 weeks. My 2 boys, wife and me were blown away by the hospitality and warm hearted hostess, that welcomed us into her home. Sue had everything perfect for our arrival and during the stay she was always there to make sure we were, absolutely enjoying our stay. The studio is so conveniently close to the city and all mayor tourist activies in Cairns, but also private enough to let you relax in the lush tropical garden or the clean warm pool in the evening after a hectic day of sight seeing. The studio had all the luxuries of home right at youre fingertips. Its 2 weeks that we will never forget and Brinsmead studio 2 has been like a home to us. Do youreself a favour and book a holiday at Sue,s place right now! Youle LOVE it!

It was a fantastic place for us to stay with our old dog "misty" as we had just moved from down south and couldn't move into our own place for a couple of weeks. Sue was a very gracious host and couldn't ask for better. Everything was at your finger tips. It was a truly wonderful stay and would recommend to anyone. Thank you Sue!!!

We began our journey through Queensland in august 2012 in Cairns and it was just perfect to stay at the Brinsmead Studios. Our host Sue was very welcoming and helpful – providing us not only with fruits from her beautiful tropical garden, but also with other delights (thanks for the delicious banana-bread!) and many useful informations.
The bigger studio, in which we stayed, is very spacious and charmingly decorated in old style. It has a separate bedroom and bathroom and a big livingroom combined with the kitchen. The kitchen has everything we could wish for and the deck outside is really comfortable. As we are birdwatchers we especially liked the big garden with many birds in it – e.g. the Olive-backed Sunbirds and the Spangled Drongos very close.
We can definitely recommend the studio!
