“Home from home”
Reviewed December 1, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We had a great week at this property, which is clean, spacious & well equipped. It has everything you need from beach towels, hair dryer, washing machine, coffeemaker, barbecue, plenty of storage space etc . Lee, the owner, who has the adjoining hair salon, was friendly, helpful & provided plenty of leaflets on the local area & further afield. Edge Hill is a lovely neighbourhood within walking distance of the beautiful Botanical Gardens. We hired a car from the airport & this was a cheaper option than the taxi fare from Edge Hill to Cairns ($16 to $19 each way). There are buses but due to the high temperatures we felt the car was the best option.

This is a little spot of home away from home and Lee is a very gracious and considerate host. Situated in a nice part of Cairns and close to the Gardens and ease of access to just about everywhere. Good value for money.

“Home Away from Home without the complications”

I love to cook and feel relaxed when I am away. The unit is incredibly cosy, filled with art and furnishings that honestly make it feel like home. I short stroll away from shops, transport, botanical gardens and if you dare the esplanade (slightly longer). Lee was welcoming and lovely, but as a true host made my feel like i was quietly alone. I could not recommend enough for the tranquility and comfort minded :)
Also I am so fuzzy about my bed and pillows... and i slept like a queen

The spacious apartment had everything that makes being away from home easier and even enjoyable. A well-stocked kitchen, comfortable living space with nice artwork and a great bed. Also, the neighbourhood is generally quiet, and the host very friendly and supportive. You do hear some sounds from the hair salon next door during the day, but at night all is quiet.

Stayed her for a week in November 2015. Located in Edge Hill close to all the local shops and cafe's etc. Very comfortable accommodation. Away from the bustle of the city yet only a 10 minute bus ride away. Many thanks to Lee and Tess for a wonderful stay.

Private, very well-appointed, quiet street. Noise from the adjoining salon is minimal, even when we were home.
