The space

Our home is situated in Whitfield, a lovely leafy suburb in the northwest of Cairns, only a 10 mins drive from Cairns CBD and airport, with a quiet and very friendly neighbourhood.

Our place has a very calming and relaxing atmosphere, allowing you to kick back, unwind and just be.

The house is a queenslander style two story home. The guest apartment is on the ground floor and has its own separate entrance at the rear of the house. The apartment has just been refurbished and features beautifully appointed artwork, reflecting our dream of living in the tropics come true. The apartment comprises 2 bedrooms, both air conditioned, with a queensize bed each, and a kitchen and bathroom. It comfortably fits 4 guests.

The fully equipped kitchenette (bar fridge, hot plates, microwave, tea kettle & toaster) allows for self catering. The adjoining stylish dining room setting offers a perfect space to enjoy your home cooked meals or take aways together.

The bathroom has a shower and toilet.

For us, living in Cairns means living in tune with nature and it is a great joy to share this experience with our guests. This is why we created a cozy outdoors space with hammocks and plenty of lounge space to relax amidst a lush and stunning tropical garden.

Awaken to the songs of the birds and start your day with a session of tai chi or yoga or have a delicious breakfast (continental breakfast included in the price/tropical fruit from our garden subject to availability) whilst watching the birds and butterflies play in the sun.

Be our guest, unwind, relax and enjoy all the goodness Cairns has to offer. We are looking forward to meeting you soon!

Guests have access to the 2 bedroom apartment (newly renovated and airconditioned), outdoors lounge with hammocks, the garden and laundry (washer/dryer).

Interaction with guests

As you can see from our reviews, interaction with our guests happens naturally and spontaneously and as much as they wish for.

We love meeting people from all parts of the world and if you wish to get some insider tips on Cairns we are more than happy to share. Having said this, we certainly respect your privacy, as we love ours too.

The neighbourhood

There is a small family grocery store, a bakery, butcher, bottle shop, great cafes, takeaways and fancy restaurants within walking distance (just 15 mins walk, 2 mins by car).

As it is so peaceful and with a touch of village feel, you would not believe we are so centrally located! Just 10 mins by car from Cairns CBD with the lagoon & nightmarkets and only 10 - 25 mins to the beach or rainforest swimming creek.

A beautiful 20 mins walk (3 mins by car) gets you to the Tanks Arts Centre & Botanic Gardens with more Cafes, and Blue/Red Arrow walk (great if you are into exercising!).

Getting around

By car: Just 10 mins from airport and Cairns CBD (Reef Fleet Terminal /Great Barrier Reef Cruises, the Lagoon and Kuranda Train Station). 15 mins to Skyrail and 25 mins to Kuranda. Nearby bus stop (3 mins walking distance), connecting you directly to Cairns CBD (approx. 20 mins ride) with Cairns Lagoon/Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal for Great Barrier Reef departures and Kuranda Train.

Free car parking is available in front of our property.

The pictures are beautiful and accurate. Marion's space is peaceful, relaxing and filled with positivity. The property is absolutely beautiful and the accommodations are comfortable. It was easy to organize a taxi into the city (Cairns Business District $15-20 AUS dollars) and was appriximately a 10-12 minute commute. I highly recommend this location. I will definitely stay here again when I return :-)

Marion is a wonderful host. Her place is artfully and tastefully decorated. She is calm and peaceful and very kind and considerate. She even offered to take us to the airport on the last day. Thank you so much Marion!

We had a late evening arrival and Marion was there to greet us and get us set up. She was friendly and inviting. The apt. Is very clean and welcoming, equips with everything you need and stocked with nice breakfast options. Indoor outdoor living space is even better than pics reflect as it is fresh and clean and tastefully done. I didn't realize there wasn't wifi but it was actually nice to have an excuse to unplug and wifi was readily accessible in the city center.

Marion is a fantastic host. She asked our names in advance, and waited for us at the front door the day we arrived. Her rooms were super clean, private and smelt good. Breakfast was provided, and also two big mangoes. She recommended us good places to go in Cairns. At evening, we enjoyed a lot in the outdoor living space with hammocks and beautiful garden. We also had wonderful talk about people and life in Cairns. Both she and her husband are great and helpful people.

Marion was a terrific host, she welcomed us and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the stay. The accomodation was clean, and there was plenty of space to relax and study. The beds were super comfortable, and the bedrooms were nice and cool. The outside lounge area was so comfortable, and peaceful plus the garden is lovely. Really enjoyed our stay, and would recommend Marion's for anyone visiting Cairns for business or pleasure!

Andre & I have chosen Cairns as our home for just the same reasons why you choose it as your holiday destination - Welcome to Paradise!
The city is just big enough to get you around easily and provide for all your needs. The surroundings are versatile and simply stunning! From outback to rainforest and beaches, Cairns has it all and we love to explore our "backyard" on adventurous 4x4 drive camping trips (as you can see on the photo picturing Andre on one of our tours).

We are easy going people who love healthy food, yoga, kite surfing, walking, stand up paddling, kayaking and generally enjoying the outdoors in peace and tranquility (also at home), but, having said that, at the same time we enjoy meeting people from all over the world and providing them a home away from home, sharing our beautiful property.
