The space

Arrive to your tropical getaway home!

Imagine going on a tropical Queensland holiday and arriving at your home away from home!

Secluded and relaxed, this three-bedroom hideaway is the perfect tropical hideaway experience.

Your stay is located central to Townsville suburban amenities, shopping, and beaches…even the V8 track and University. This modern-appointed, recently renovated home is the perfect retreat for a couple, two couples or more, accommodating up to eight people. Many guests use my home as a basecamp for exploring the natural wonders of North Queensland.

Upon arrival, a beautiful mural handcrafted by a local artist welcomes you. To help you settle in, help yourself to complimentary drinks and cheese. I’ll also provide you with a welcome pack with toiletries, groceries and other necessities to make the house feel more like a home.

In your down time, feel free to watch Foxtel (Cable TV) and use unlimited high-speed NBN connected to Wi-Fi.

Relax in the heated outdoor spa, away from neighbours and all your worries and cares.

I’ll be in contact by phone or text any time so you can have the house all to yourself. All you have to do is sit back, relax and enjoy this sweet little oasis in Currajong, the heart of Townsville!

This is a great property, well managed and beautifully presented. Nate is very well organised and his welcome was brilliant - from the thoughtful provision of basic food supplies through to the unexpected Christmas tree and treats, this was a really great experience. The house is really nice and comfortable - exactly the 'tropical cottage retreat' as described. The house is well located in the geographic centre of Townsville and embodies a real 'tropical' feel, with a sensitive modernisation of an old queensland cottage. All of the cooking utensils are supplied, as are plentiful towels and manchester. The wifi and cable tv is excellent. There is a comprehensive house manual and really the guest needs nothing more.We will definitely be back!

One of the best AirBnb's we have stayed in. Well appointed, good location for us and great layout. Our day visitors (family) were also impressed. Only drawback is one bathroom covering 4 bedrooms. There was an issue with electricity and the air conditioners but Nate had that attended to very quickly.

Tropical Cottage Retreat, is a must stay for anyone travelling to Townsville. Nate, is the perfect host, his empathy & communication is outstanding and at a time when we were in Townsville for medical reasons, he couldn't have been anymore accommodating. From the moment we arrived at the house, it was so warm and welcoming, we knew we had found our home away from home. Tropical Cottage Retreat is in an excellent location and is only a short distance to everything. The house and property have everything & more, that helped make Mum & my stay so serene, comfortable & peaceful. I could go on & on about how idyllic this place is, but I'll say it is just that....idyllic and we're so grateful to have found Nate & Tropical Cottage Retreat. Bronwyn

Hi I'm Nate!

I'm a tradesman based in Melbourne. I move around a lot with work, and have been lucky enough to visit most of the East coast of Australia.

I have a passion for the new 'sharing economy' that exist's today. It brings me great joy to be able to share my personality through my pad's with people from all over the world.

I spend a lot of time in airports and traveling myself, so I understand the importance of a comfortable place to rest and relax.

I'd love to be able to share my AirBnb adventure with you!

Thanks for checking out my page and I hope to talk with you soon.

- Nate :)
