This is a clean, quiet and relaxed home with a lovely ambience. Spacious rooms and a large deck overlook a beautiful rainforest garden and there is a hammock and lounge to relax on. .
The house is situated in a safe, well established neighbourhood on the southside of Cairns 15 mins drive from Cairns CBD and Marina. There is also a bus stop 7 mins walk away with buses available to the city. The driveway provides off road parking for hire cars. There is also a good 30 minute return walk up the hill for those that would like some exercise in the morning - you can see Green Island from the top!
The house has 2 spacious bedrooms, an open plan lounge area, one toilet and a separate bathroom. The bedrooms have arched doorways and are separated from the main area by thick curtains. Each room has a very comfortable queensize bed and sleeps 2.
A large fully equipped kitchen with electric oven, gas top, microwave, coffee machine and fridge is available for guests to use. Most guests like to eat outside on the verandah overlooking the rainforest garden. There is also a bbq/grill if you like to cook outside. I ask that you please clean up after yourselves. There is also a TV and a DVD player available.
This home is unique, surrounded by tall, magnificent trees. Birds and butterflies are abundant here. It makes a great base for those wanting to explore the Tablelands, Cape Tribulation and beaches. Birdwatchers will also love the variety of birds here.

The house is not suitable for pets or young children.
Guests are welcome to use all areas of the house inside and outside. With the common areas, kitchen, bathroom etc I do ask that guests leave these clean and tidy after use. Thank you.
Interaction with guests
I enjoy interacting with guests and all guests are different. I respect that some guests are very happy doing there own thing whilst others like more connection and time with the host. I am happy to 'go with the flow'!
I love the fact I live in such a quiet, safe and beautiful tropical neighbourhood relatively close to Cairns city. It's friendly and private at the same time
The bus stop to the city is 7 mins walk away. Buses run every 30 mins at during the week and every hour at weekends.
Other things to note
Occassionally I rent both rooms out to other guests especially in the busy season. I find this works really well and guests enjoy meeting other travellers and can make new friends..

Please turn off fans and lights when not in use.
You are welcome to smoke outside on the verandah, down the driveway or in the garden.
No noise after 10pm.

Originally from the UK, I have lived in Cairns for 24 years and was involved in tourism for 15 years so am happy to give you ideas for your stay here. Since then I have started my own Reiki business and do treatments, facilitate Courses and instruct people in meditation. Recently I completed my Yoga Teacher training so if you'd like to learn some I'm happy to share.
I love hosting people from overseas and thought Airbnb would be a great opportunity to do more of this.
My passion is travel both overseas and around the local area. I enjoy reading a good book, yoga and getting together with friends. I also enjoy good food, relaxation music and conversation.
My motto in life is BE HAPPY and make the most out of every day.
