Interaction with guests
We are very experienced travellers who love meeting new people and sharing stories. We have used air bnb for years on our travels and love it. You can enjoy your own privacy in the downstairs quarters or interact with hosts or other guests in the communal spaces. There are plenty of spaces that offer a chance to withdraw to alone or in company.
Our leafy, family oriented neighbourhood is like living in a perfect world. People are friendly and will great you with a smile and hello. You will immediately feel safe and welcome here. There are lots of places to take a stroll and enjoy the wonderful views, take in the abundant bird life and natural environment. Our home is tucked away in a very private streets that has all the advantages and access to everything but doesn't't feel like suburbia!
A car will enable you to access the city, 15 minutes away, and all the beautiful local attractions such as rivers, waterfalls, rainforest parks and beaches. A bike will also serve to reach many beautiful places and there are wonderful new bike paths which make it safer.n
The bus stop for the 121 is just down the hill and will take you to the city or on to the nearest shopping centre in Redlynch to connect to the northern beaches.
Other things to note
The local village shopping centre is a short walk down the hill and there you will find a little supermarket, patisserie, butchers, fish and chip shop, Thai restaurant, post office and hairdressers. The local nursery also has a great cafe and offers a gorgeous relaxing environment as well as great coffee and food. In addition, there is the charming Freshwater Station which also has a cafe, museum, gift shop and the tourist train to Kuranda.
I expect my guests to respect this as my home and to maintain the cleanliness and tidiness that we can all enjoy. The neighbourhood is family oriented and I prefer guests to respect this environment and be considerate of others. If there are any problems I expect guests to speak to me as soon as possible to avoid unhappiness.
We are a couple in our late 50's who love travelling (even though we live in a magnificent part of the world-Far North Queensland). Mark and I are originally from Victoria and as much as we love visiting family down south, our many years in the tropics has convinced us that living long-term in unpredictable, chilly weather, is not for us!! I am an Adult Literacy Teacher and have been teaching at the Cairns TAFE for an embarrassingly long time! Mark is a pilot. We both value our jobs and consider ourselves to be really fortunate to have jobs we both enjoy as well as offering security.
We are also the parents of four children. Our eldest daughter is an archeologist living in Spain and we have been lucky enough to visit her spending time in her little Basque village as well as travelling through Spain together. We loved it lots! Our next beautiful daughter is a flight attendant living in Brisbane and we're lucky to have another a Queensland holiday destination. . After quite a big gap we had twins who are now nearly 20. Our son works in NSW as an aerial observer and our daughter, who is very creative, is a dive master and underwater videographer.
Mark and I have a big house which is relatively empty these days and are looking forward to sharing it with guests. A friend of mine has inspired me with all her positive experiences and meeting lovely people world-wide, since she opened her house up to Airbnb this year.
We love walking, bike riding, going to movies and food! We love travelling.
We look forward to sharing our experiences and meeting people through our travels and hopefully gaining insights and recommendations through local knowledge.
