About this listing

Pegasus is nestled in a horseshoe of mountains with ocean glimpses from your elevated deck amongst the palms. Only an 8-minute drive to the city and Cairns esplanade, and 3 minutes to the acclaimed Edge Hill restaurant hub. Perfectly suited for two.

The space

It’s a cool, light, airy, peaceful, treetop sanctuary, situated at the end of the house, well away from the family living areas.

Guest access

Your apartment is at the top of a fairly steep driveway, and there is ample parking and turning space. The apartment is reached from the car park via a short, exterior pathway. You have your own private, secluded, entrance, which can be accessed at any time without disturbing the household.

Interaction with guests

After our initial welcome, we will leave you to enjoy the natural beauty of Pegasus and its surrounds. But we are more than happy to assist with any information you may be seeking. The apartment is run by Carmel who was born and raised in Cairns and is a local tour guide, so she knows her way around!

Other things to note

We will provide a selection of essentials for breakfast on your first morning. :)
Your apartment is air-conditioned, has a wifi signal, a gas BBQ on a large private balcony, and is in a very safe suburb. You may awaken to the sound of tropical birds, and even encounter ‘Monty’, our neighbourhood monitor lizard!
Our swimming pool is available to you, by request, and access is a 50m walk from your apartment.

The birds, the view, the pool, the kitchen, the serenity, the hosts...this place has it all. I loved how quiet it was, and how private. A perfect place to base yourself in Cairns. 10/10

We stayed with Carmel and Nigel whilst exploring FNQ. We were a short drive from the airport, as well as the city. We were close to all things, but far enough to enjoy some peace. The place has a beautiful view and is charming, surrounded by lush foliage and the sounds of the blowing breeze and crickets chirping. Carmel and Nigel truly think of everything and their place has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I highly recommend staying here if you can.

Very convenient to the airport. Nice to sit on the deck surrounded by tropical birds and fruit. Large breakfast the first day, but we stretched it for a few days. They have a few movies on a USB drive, which is a nice touch. Kitchen is fully functional. Be aware that this is in a warm climate and there is some natural level of spiders and ants. Not a huge deal but could put some off, even in the "cold" months. Carmel was very nice to greet us for our late night arrival. Great stay.

Response from Carmel And Nigel:
Hi Ryan, We are pleased that you enjoyed the deck and waking to the sound of our local birdlife. Thank you for your favorable review and your constructive feedback. For a natural ambience we haven't screened the flat completely, but provided personal spray, surface spray and an electronic bug device. The green ants tend to stay outside on the passionfruit vine and most guests say they are a joy to watch. But the tropical 'wildlife' can creep some people out.. I totally understand and I'm right onto it now. I hope we see you back in Cairns again one day. Cheers Carmel and Nigel

This was the most wonderful, relaxing place. Great views from the balcony, lovely and quiet but only a few minutes to everything you need, either in town or out to the highway. The space was lovely, with a good-sized balcony for outdoor living, barbecuing and eating. We cooked for ourselves every night in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed the sound of the wildlife and watching the stars while we ate. We also enjoyed a daily swim in the pool. Carmel and Nigel were fantastic hosts, very friendly and interesting people, lovely to chat with over a glass of wine. We would have loved to stay longer so be careful you could end up wanting to buy the place :)

Supersuper Hosts!! Carmel and Nigel could not have made me feel more welcome and provided-for. They picked me up from the airport, gave me a tour of the local area, leant me their bike and offered breakfast, lifts and help with anything I needed! They have the balance absolutely spot-on with being incredibly welcoming and inclusive, but allowing plenty of privacy too. They are the most wonderful couple, so glad I had the pleasure of staying with them. The apartment itself is completely self-contained and the pictures do not do it justice!! Beautiful interior, gorgeous views, amazingly immersed in the trees with a tropical vibe and yet only a few minutes drive into the city (or a 20-min cycle). You can see the mountains and the ocean in the distance and all you can hear are the peaceful sounds of the rainforest. My absolute favourite Airbnb experience to date. If I'm ever back in Cairns this would be the first place I'd book!! Thank you guys :)
