Karen is a most warm & caring host. Her house is lovely & we felt very relaxed and at home there. Guests should be aware that there are other guest rooms so you are sharing the bathroom & kitchen. We didn't find this a problem and in fact enjoyed meeting others & hearing their stories & travel plans. We would definitely recommend Karen's home & would stay there if we are in Cairns again!

A very pleasant house, Karen and her husband were charming and provided everything we needed and more. We had complete privacy and possibility to talk with the other guests whenever we wanted. The bus stop is just around the corner, allowing us to go to the city easily without a car.

Awesome host! We enjoyed our stay to the fullest. We felt like home, everything was fully organized, super clean space. Karen was really helpful and friendly. She even dropped us to the cruise berth early in the morning. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for cozy, homely environment in Cairns city. P.S. the bed was really comfortable.

Got to say I Love to travel and have been doing so for the past 20 years. No matter where you go there are alway exciting place to see but best of all is the new friendships made and lets face it thats "special". My husband Colin and I have just returned to our home city of Cairns, after living for five years in Papua New Guinea. Ah, the expat life sooo good. So many memories and life long friendships made. We have also travelled to America, South Affica, Europe and of course our favorite... Asia. Its so close to Aussie...of course visiting all thes places opens up a whole new world of "food", must say we do love it! Hope if you stay with us you will share some of your experiences and love of food and travel.
