    What guests are saying:

    “Judi and Wayne were very elegant hosts. We were greeted by Judi and Murph, her cute little dachshund. All in all, we weren't disturbed in any way. And wenn we said we have to stay one night less due to the earlier flight home, Judi didn't hesitate to give us the money back in cash! The apartment was really heavenly. Everything is tidy and clean and you can cook outside wenn you want or have a swim in the long pool. The bathroom is huge with with a huge shower and a freestanding bathtub. The apartment per se is really big and constructed open to the outside. The bed is just as soft as it should be. We slept very well. Nearby are a lot of restaurants and a small supermarket. So you can either cook by yourself or go to have a good dinner. Also nearby is the botanical garden. All in all we loved the very green surrounding of the apartment. We really recommend the apartment to everyone staying Cairns! Thank you so much Judi and Wayne!”

The king sized four poster bed, with ample room to work, rest & play, will give you the best introduction to Cairns tropical living.

    What guests are saying:

    “Matt and Dan have designed an amazing room with lots of space and comfort. The bed is really comfortable, shower has great pressure, everything was nice and clean. They cared for every little touch which made the room and outside area really special. After having a bath I felt so recharged! Plus they have beautiful animals, and a stunning fish tank. They provided me with a book containing info about the property, surroundings, restaurants etc. which was really helpful. The location is really great, close to the esplanade, restaurants, pharmacies, petrol stations... And they are always willing to help. Definitely coming back again soon! Thank you for the lovely stay.”

    Luxurious, private guesthouse, amazing views

    We call our guesthouse “the pondy". It’s a luxurious 1 bedroom, very private and fully self contained retreat set into the hillside amongst the trees and lush tropical gardens. You are 100m from the Botanical gardens and Tanks Art Centre; a 3 minute walk to the village of Edgehill with its many cafes and shops; a 10 minute drive to the city of Cairns and 10 minutes to the beach. The perfect rainforest retreat, secluded and peaceful with beautiful views. Enjoy the outdoor spa!

    What guests are saying:

    “We had a great stay at the "Pondy" apartment! The location was amazing - basically one block from the Botanic Gardens, how fantastic. Views were like a luxury resort, overlooking the trees and hills in the background. Two kookaburras actually flew right up onto the porch to say hello! Easy walk to trails, restaurants in Edge Hill, and super quick drive to downtown Cairns. Easy day trip access to Tablelands, Great Barrier Reef, Daintree, and more. The apartment itself was lovely, with ample kitchen and bathroom amenities, even eggs, coffee, milk and breads, jams all ready to go for us. Amazing outdoor living room / patio, and hot tub (or cool pool if you like during the heat of the day). Felt like a tropical home! Nardine was easy to communicate with, and check-in and parking was easy as well. Our hosts were also exceptionally accommodating when our plans changed we needed to extend our stay. So appreciated. We can't wait to come back!”
