Our place is a century old, low set Queenslander that has been fully renovated in 2014. You’ll love my place because of the location, very close to city center and all the public transport. My place is good for three people, couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. I am sure you will love your experience at the RED SPARROW. See ya soon.

The space

I have lived in Cairns for over 30 years, so if you have any questions about what there is to do during your stay, just ask.

Guest access

Being close to the city, we are walking distance from all the night clubs, shops, markets and restaurants. We also have an outside bar-b-que if you prefer to dine in the back yard with a cool drink. There is a security system with external cameras fitted as well as a combination key locker outside.

Interaction with guests

My wife and I have lived in Cairns for over 30 years, so if you have any questions about what there is to do in Cairns, just ask.

Other things to note

We have two little dogs that we adore, and I am sure you will as well.
If you do not get along with dogs at all, we might have a problem.

I had a great stay with Colin and Christine, who were super friendly and helpful. Their 2 dogs were very well behaved and lovely. They lent me a bike the first day and took me to the Botanics where I had a brilliant afternoon. Their advice and knowledge about Cairns was very useful and they went out their way to make sure I was comfortable and even took me to the airport the last day. The bed was very comfortable and the shower immaculate and powerful. I would go stay with them again anytime. I wish them success as an airBnB

I had the best time staying at Red Sparrow, the home itself has a much relaxed feel about it and hosts Colin and Christine made me feel so welcome, I felt at ease with them instantly. I was getting about on foot so Red Sparrows close proximity to the city centre was just perfect, it is about 4 blocks to the esplanade wish made it easy to go out for a meal in the evening and a drink (Salt House do $4 dollar drinks on a Monday night from 8pm). Just one street over is a really cool backpackers where tours will pick you up from and the drinks are around $4.50. Colin and Christine are just naturals at being generous with their time and I was very lucky to have Christine show me around Kununda and Colin kindly insisted he drop me at the airport. If your interested in having a relaxed place to stay with some genuinely kind and open hearted hosts then stay at the Red Sparrow, it's a place you will want to tell your friends about and return to visit again, I know I will.

I am retired now, but I have traveled extensively around the world with work and on vacation. I play golf, take my little tinny out for a cruise's around the Cairns water ways and generally just enjoy the life in Cairns. My wife and I have lived in Grimshaw street since we were married in 2005. In the 30 years that I have lived in Cairns I have checked out most of the tours, restaurants, golf courses and trips around the area, and am glad to share any of my experiences.
