Overview
Rental Home -
4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
Cairns, Cairns Region, Queensland
Why settle for an apartment when you can rent your own spacious and comfortable family home close to the City Centre? Wilks House is a timber Queenslander home of great character with 4 bedrooms (2 Queen beds, and 2 sets of Twin Single beds) 2 modern bathrooms with showers and a bath, a large family room and children's rumpus room, and a very well equipped kitchen for those who like to cook. With high ceilings and polished timber floors, this house was built for our tropical climate .
There is a lovely big back garden for children to play in which is fully fenced and private.Pet friendly for dogs, but not inside the house please.
The street is a quiet cul de sac and if you walk to the end, you can see wallabies (small kangaroos) grazing in the paddock in the evening. This home is fully air conditioned for our hot summer months and...

A lot of thought had obviously been given by the owners to the needs of the occupants. Things like a bowl of fruit, cleaning/washing powders etc. tea,coffee,sugar were there for...

I stayed here with my extended family in June 2016 for about 5 nights. It's a great house that came with lots of extra touches like fresh milk, fruit, beach towels and face washers. We travelled with little children and had requested a cot from the managers. They went the extra mile and also provided a baby bath, nappy bin,...

Management response:

Hi Fabianna... it was a pleasure to meet you all. Nice to hear the kids enjoyed the back garden. It does make a difference to have some space - Guests often tell us this is one of the main reasons which influences them to rent a holiday house . We were very touched by your Christmas gift of beautiful coffee......
