Amazing location right on the beach represented great value for our family. A great place to base your trip at the mouth of the Barron River and right on the beach. Amenities were top notch. Loved the feel of the house as well. You cannot go wrong with this property. Highly highly recommend.

Machans Beach is just a short ride from the Cairns airport. Peter's house is right on the water and we had perfect sunrise views and walks on the beach at low tide. The house was stocked with all the appliances incl. Expresso machine that we needed. There were plenty of books to read as well as board games to play. The house has a wonderful outside deck where we spent much of our time. We found access to activities such as the Kuranda Railway and the Skyway close by. Our accommodations were so wonderful that we did not want to leave.

Really cool little community north of Cairns with great natural surroundings, lovely pub and cute local shops. The house is gorgeous. The decor and furnishings are unique and beautifully presented. Well stocked kitchen and the deck and pool area overlooking the ocean is just stunning.

Beautiful house with stunning view. It was so pleasant to wake up to a sunrise and sleep listening to the waves. Peter and Janet was very helpful, quick to respond to questions. There were complementary coffee, local tea selection and basic cooking ingredients so we ended up cooking at the house and having breakfast and dinner while enjoying the view. Close to central Cairns, small local town where I could get milk and bread for breakfast. Very enjoyable stay. Thank you!

Most beautiful airbnb we've ever stayed at. Quiet respite away from the mass tourists sites, but easy drives to northern beaches and anyplace you'd like to visit. Pool and ocean an utter dream. This was a truly special home.

Peter's home is an amazing place with beautiful views and an amazing indoor space that we enjoyed immensely. It is by far the nicest AirBNB we have ever stayed in. The only two minor set backs I would mention are the proximity to downtown Cairns if you plan any excursions and the fact that the ocean right outside is too shallow to swim. Other than that, the bikes/pool/view/kitchen and everything else were absolutely spectacular! Peter is a wonderful host and easy to communicate with. If we had gone for a relaxing vacation with the family to stay and not move around too much, this would be the best house ever!

Retired accountant living in a beautiful area of far north Queensland, enjoying the local life & weather. Motorcycling along the stunning coastline and the peaceful tablelands is another of my pastimes along with 4 wheel driving & golf. I frequently travel to Europe and British Columbia but Australia is home
