My place is a great base to explore Cairns and surrounds. It's 10mins from the airport and its close to town (walk or bus). It's very clean, cosy and private + the beds are super comfy! It is very private and has it's own entrance. It is a fully air-conditioned, self-contained studio with a great kitchen & lovely outdoor area. There are great cooking facilities. I supply tea, coffee, milk, breakfast cereal & other thoughtful inclusions. It is family friendly and there is a shared laundry.

The space

The accommodation is a studio apartment under my high set home. It is fully self-contained and comfortably appointed. There is a combined lounge/dining area, an L shaped bedroom which contains both the Queen and the Single bed (a divider across the room provides a privacy screen between the two beds creating a two bedroom effect). Clean sheets and towels are supplied. The decor is cosy and there are lots of thoughtful inclusions to make your stay as comfortable as possible. For those looking to relax and unwind... grab a book and lie back on the sunbed in your private garden area or relax on the lounge with a DVD.

Guest access

Access to the accommodation is through the screen door under the front stairs. Self-check in option is available. If you are arriving at night I will leave the lights on for you.

Interaction with guests

I live upstairs (with my daughter and small dog), so feel free to come and see me if you need anything. I am more than happy share my local knowledge and give you ideas about things you can see and do while in Cairns. If you have any special requirements please ask and I'll see if I can help!

Other things to note

A shared laundry is available. You will need 2 x $1 coins to do a load of washing. Access to Free WiFi (Broadband) is provided.

This flat was great, easily accessible from the city centre, clean, spacious, quiet, fantastic cooking facilities for space given, tons of DVDs so you will never be bored. Elaine is lovely, friendly and makes you feel right at home. She is happy to give you your own space but also is great for advice about what to do in Cairns if you happen to be travelling at the time. Highly recommend !!!!

We enjoyed our stay at Elaine`s place. It is nice clean and cozy. Also very close to everything. Elaine responded quickly to my messages and gave us great suggestions about the area. She is definitely a great host. Thanks for having us!

Elaine was a wonderful host. Easy to communicate with and even drove us into town our first day. The location is a 20-30 minute walk into the city or a short Uber ride (~$8). We would definitely stay with Elaine again.

Do it! Elaine is a great host and her place is in a quiet little neighborhood close to everything. My daughter and I were visiting Australia in vacation and spent a week at Elaine's place in Cairns. It was our home base for day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, Kuranda, Cape Tribulation, and the Atherton Tablelands. It was the perfect home base and perfect spot to come back to at the end of each day. We had our own beds and even a little privacy with the divider Elaine placed in the bedroom. The apartment has a private bathroom and a kitchen where we prepared our breakfasts and even some simple dinners. A fantastic place for the price! We saved so much money on accommodation, we didn't feel so bad about how expensive the rest of the trip was :)

We had a pleasant 3-day stay here. Great location, close to major attractions and restaurants in Cairns. Comfortable bed, quiet neighborhood, and spacious living space. Elaine was also went out of her ways to make sure we had all we needed.

Nice stay in Elaine's unit. "Studio" is underselling the size - I found it spacious for 1 or 2 people, with a separate kitchen, and separate cozy living room. The beds were comfy. The kitchen was well equipped. The wifi was fast. The A/C worked well when we needed it. The location is well described - about a 25 minute walk into the city alongside a major road. Street parking was very easily available. Note that it is a ground-level unit in tropical Queensland so there were a few bugs around a couple doors and windows, but nothing out of the ordinary. Elaine was super helpful and friendly, showing us around the apartment, giving advice, and offering rides into town. There was a very brief issue with the water being shut off due to a leak, but Elaine was extremely communicative and had it promptly fixed. Both from this and other communication, it was clear that Elaine cares about her guests and wants them to have a great and comfortable time while in Cairns.

I love being an Airbnb host and meeting lots of great people from all over. I love to tell people about the great things to do in and around Cairns - it is such a beautiful place. I love to bush walk and go out with friends. I even enjoy playing Pokemon Go with my kids!
