A classic North Queensland timber home set on a private 13 acre estate. It has everything for the large family or group - swimming pool, tennis court, lush gardens and the beautiful Freshwater Creek.
Horse riding lessons and school holiday programs available at Crystal Cascades Horse Park.

The space

There are very few holiday homes in the Cairns area that are equipped and able to sleep up to 15 people. Zanzoo Retreat is one of them! This large comfortable house is located in the wonderful rural setting of the Redlynch Valley, surrounded by rainforest and creeks yet close to the centre of Cairns.
6 Bedrooms, 3 sleep-outs, (12 beds available) King beds can be made up as twin singles if requested.

Guest access

There is only one work shed on the property that guests do not have access to. Permanent tenants live in another house on the property, but they will respect your privacy.

Interaction with guests

Guests are welcomed on arrival and given a tour of the house so that they know where everything is. They can contact us at any time during their stay if there is an emergency situation at the house or a difficulty with some appliance. We will do our best to fix things as quickly as possible.

Other things to note

Bedding arrangements MUST be fixed with the house manager before arrival. King beds can be split to give twin singles so housekeeping needs to know what sheets and mattress protectors are required before you get there. Once set they can't be altered without charge as sheets are all pre-ordered.

Photos do not do this place justice.. Beautiful setting great house. First floor Sleep outs are open to the outside with just fly screens & blinds so use a fan if sleeping in them in the heat. Would definitely recommend..

This was a wonderful base for our 3 families to explore the wonders of Far North Qld, with lots of space for games in the garden plus the pool and tennis court - it was a kids dream. The house layout is unusual but suited us fine.

Zanzoo retreat is the perfect accommodation for larger groups. Our booking was for a family special occasion and comprised of 13 people (8 adults and 5 kids). Everyone had plenty of space to spread out and enjoy a group holiday, but also the privacy of their own bedrooms including 3 with their own ensuites. The gorgeous renovated Queenslander home is set on acreage with a artificial grass tennis court and pool. The kids (and a few adults) loved playing tennis daily and thoroughly enjoyed our very "own" pool. We were able to self cater most of our meals utilising the well equipped kitchen. It is a great place to base yourself as it is just a short distance from Crystals Cascades and easy driving to the Northern beaches, Kuranda Skyrail, Kuranda, Cairns and many other tourist destinations. Communication was great with both the manager and cleaner. The house was very clean and tidy on arrival. It was very welcoming to have a few complimentary food supplies left for us including tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and fruit. Overall it was a great experience and I would highly recommend Zanzoo Retreat. Quote from the kids, "We feel like we are living in our very own mansion!"
