Our lovely 2 bedroom apartment is your holiday retreat, 10 minutes walk to Kewarra Beach. Beautifully placed between Cairns and Port Douglas, you have the best of both worlds in getting to know Cairns - or you can choose to just sit by the pool and relax!

This apartment is in the downstairs section of our house and can be booked independently, or with the upstairs area as part of a group booking. It has a private entrance, its own kitchen and is totally self contained, so the choice is yours!

The space

One of the best features of our home is the location - it is family friendly with lovely friendly neighbours, and such a short walk to a great dog friendly beach.
Your accommodation is a self contained 2 bedroom 1 bathroom unit. The privacy afforded by the separate entrance makes this perfect for several families holidaying together, or for different groups staying independently, and sharing some common areas. Please refer to our other listing - https://www.airbnb.com.au/rooms/20138145?guests=4&adults=2&children=2&location=Kewarra%20Beach%2C%20Australia&check_in=2017-08-12&check_out=2017-08-16&s=_LDvk9Y6.
Our large and fully enclosed back yard is perfect for kid’s activities, and our welcoming inground pool has safety fencing and pool toys. Feel free to include your well behaved pets in your family holiday!
All linen and towels are provided, as are basic provisions. We can provide a booster seat and portacot for your toddler.
When you are ready to venture out from your home away from home and explore, you will be spoilt for choice.
Take a wander around Cairns and the city centre, and particularly check out the waterfront. The Cairns Aquarium will open shortly, and this is sure to be a major attraction. Many guests visit the Great Barrier Reef, and why wouldn’t they?
Port Douglas is a lovely drive of less than an hour, along a windy but beautiful ocean road, and visiting the Daintree Rainforest can comfortably be done in a day trip. Palm Cove is 15 minutes to the north, and Trinity Beach 10 minutes to the south; both have many fabulous dining options.
The kids will love Hartley's Crocodile Farm. You should explore Kuranda, and you have many options including Skyrail, the Train (you can get a combo of both) or you can drive. You can go further than Kuranda too, up to the Tablelands where it is several degrees cooler and offers some stunning scenery.
Closer to home, head down to lovely, family friendly Kewarra Beach, and enjoy the children's playground and covered BBQ area. You can take your dog off leash on this beach too.
Kewarra Beach Resort has a fine dining restaurant, but also offers the Beach Shack on Friday nights and Sunday afternoons. Ditch the shoes and enjoy putting your feet in the sand as you enjoy gourmet pizzas, a glass of wine and some live music. Don’t forget to book though – it’s pretty popular!
When you're done with sightseeing, you can just sit and enjoy the pool area and our beautiful backyard, overlooking rainforest – if you’re there at dusk, you might see some wallabies at play! During the day, you will enjoy the sight and sounds of many birds, including kookaburras, and the stunning Ulysses butterfly.
There are shops close by for food and provisions, including an IGA a couple of minutes away, and Coles and Woolworths within a 15 minute drive.

What a lovely location and great apartment! We enjoyed a great number of days with Sue. Great pool to laze about in and easy access to Cairns and nearby attractions. We really enjoyed her tip to go and have a pizza on the beach (with live music!) at the Kewarra Beach Resort - just walking distance away so you can enjoy a glass a wine there too as parents. Lovely apartment - would happily return

We visited this area for our daughters wedding. The house has a pool which the boys loved but for those who prefer the beach it is a walk away. We had everything we needed with our hosts nearby if we had any questions. The double bed was a dream to sleep on.

Note for future visitors; our house is 250 metres from the beach.

Lovely, quiet area far enough from the hustle and bustle of Cairns but still close enough to everything
