My travel buddies and myself could not have been anymore happier to stay at the homestead. The location is perfect, the scenery was superb and most importantly, the service and set up that was provided was beyond expected. Mary and her family were super hospitable, friendly and outgoing. I would recommend this place to anyone and for any occasion based on location (close to shops and tourist spots), comfort and friendliness.
We stayed 4 days with Mary and her family. We had two bedrooms and a separate bath and entrance. The view towards the garden, playarea and rainforest was just beautiful and relaxing. We were allowed to use the bbq, fridge and microwave, which was enough for a 4-Day-stay but would prefer a kitchen and maybe washmachine for a longer stay. Our son loved the big verandah and Mary was so lovely to set it up with toys for him, as we were a bit unlucky with the weather.
The property is only about 15 mins away from the city by car and the airport. There is also a nice creek just in front, about 5mins walk and save for swimming plus the cascades only a short drive. Shops and laundromat only a short drive. We highly recommend to stay at Mary's place for a short stay with kids. The garden is so big and set up with toys, trampoline, ducks, chickens, etc.
A beautiful peace of paradise. The perfect place to relax with its idyllic setting and gorgeous surroundings. Mary (the owner) was very friendly and helpful, going the extra mile to make our Cairns holiday even more amazing
My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here for a few nights a couple of years ago.
We loved the serenity of the peaceful surroundings that the homestead provided.
Luxury accommodation at a very affordable price.
We visited for just one night however w felt very relaxed and welcomed. The room and bathroom were lovely, the bed was very comfortable. We didn't feel having our 6 month old son was going to be a problem, which is great. Unfortunately we didn't have time to explore the creek near by, but we will next time.
