My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and big groups. It is a Queenslander with character. Close to nightlife, restaurants, lagoon and parks. We have an outdoor dining area downstairs with barbeque for al fresco dining in the tropics, also lounge and coffee table for the smokers. Huge backyard as well.

The bbq that is listed is a useless rusty old thing. There was no communication with the owners; they were never there. We had to pay $40 in costs for 'cleaning' but we had to do it all ourselves. Never saw them. Location is good and the house has most of the basic needs. Kitchen, livingroom and bathroom are fine.

Nice and big place. Kitchen has everything you need. The city center is a 20 minute walk away and so it's easy to get there and very quiet at the same time. The only thing missing is the WiFi, but other than that a very good place to stay.

POSITIVES: The cottage was very well priced and in a good location in Cairns. The listing was mostly accurate, with all basic needs met. SMALL PROBLEMS: The only part of the listing that was not accurate was the ability to lock the door to our room, which is VERY important when the are multiple rooms for multiple guess. BIG PROBLEMS: Communication prior to our stay and during our stay was minimal, we never met the hosts in person. The information given for our check-in was not accurate and a key was not provided in accordance with the hosts instructions during our late check-in. The host was informed our of late check-in but was not reachable when we had problems. In order to get into the home and our room, I had to climb through a window and let us in. There was a miscommunication between the host and other guests that were told to leave their key for us. In other words, there were not enough keys for all guests and we did not receive a key until the evening of the next day. OVERALL: Even with the big problems we had with check-in, I would suggest staying here if you are looking for the most affordable stay in Cairns and one that is close (less than 20 minute walk) to tourist areas, shopping malls and everything you may need. All needs were met with the home facilities. If you do stay here, keep in mind that communication may be minimal and if you encounter a problem, it may not be solved in an efficient manner.

This cottage was everything we needed for our stay in Cairns. Only 20-25 min walk away from the centre and marina. Bedroom was clean and towels provided. Kitchen offered tea and coffee which was great. No WiFi but mcdonalds is up the road. Good value all round

Great place, photos are accurate. Shops/city centre is a 15 min walk (taxis are also quite cheap, compared to Melbourne), and kitchen is well stocked. Basic toiletries were given which was really nice. House rules are placed on the fridge and are reasonable. Great DVD selection. Erna and Brad were very helpful and responded immediately or very quickly when I had any questions/needed help. Would stay here again if I ever come back to Cairns.

Brad and Erna are very nice hosts and really take care of there guests. The hole house is spotlessly clean. Wifi should be available.

a beautiful old house with 4 guest rooms. it was us and another couple so it felt very intimate and private. a/c only in the living room and the rest of the house has efficient ceiling fans. kitchen well equipped. abundant towels and soaps. about 15min walking to Cairns city centre. seems like the place is being constantly improved for the guests benefit - recommended.

I am a hardworking guy and hardly ever home. My partner Erna actually runs the airbnb for us. When home, we like to entertain and watch movies, enjoy our pool and just chillax. We love good food, wine and good friends. We also like to travel and Thailand is one of our favourite destinations. We work hard, party hard and life's too short to be miserable.
