Genevieve's hospitality and expertise is par excellence. I felt very accommodated and I can safely say I was home away from home. Her place is up to standard in all respects and it is close to the esplanade. I can't thank you enough for being such an amazing host. I will surely be back in not so distant future. Keep up the good work.

This was a nice, comfortable and relaxed stay for me, with a friendly host and cat. It's about 2km from the center proper, which is totally doable with a walk (or bicycle ride) along the esplanade. The complex even has a small pool to cool off, if you don't want to go into Cairns or elsewhere.

It's all been said already, I booked on the strength of previous reviews and everything was accurate. As a first time Airbnber I have just one question; are all hosts and accommodations like this? If so I may never stay in a hotel ever again! Thanks, Gen, for making my stay so comfortable and lovely. Thank you for being so generous with your time, and knowledgeable and proud of your city.

We had a wonderful stay in Cairns, thanks to Genevieve. Her house, the room and in-suite bathroom (and the cat Nikita) are lovely. She's been a perfect host, she made us really feel at home and was very attentive. Genevieve also had great suggestions of addresses. I'd strongly recommend this place !

I'm a mum of 3 beautiful young men and now they are off doing their thing!!
I'm currently studying nursing all over again. Too many years not practicing and registration slipped.
I have lived in PNG, Melbourne, Maleny, Christchurch & Invercargill NZ. I've been in Cairns for 19 years and know the area very well. I love travelling myself and have visited many places overseas. Looking forward to more travel when my studies have finished.
I share my home with a goregous cat Nikita. She is very friendly and open to new people. She has travelled extensively with me. Quite a unique cat.
I love wining and dining, and good music. Lots of live music here in Cairns. The arts are high on my list of passions and we are lucky to have plenty here in Cairns also.
Looking forward to the exciting opportunities of meeting new people that have a passion for the world as I do.
