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 couples, couples with a friend or senior child and business travelers. You will be very hard pressed to find a more comfortable, quiet air conditioned space.

The space

In room 2, you have ceiling fan, air conditioning, a very comfortable (posture-pedic mattress) queen size bed, large TV, HD hard drive recorder, DVD player with over 200 DVDs to watch. You also have a large wardrobe with plenty of storage space, draws and hangers.
In room 1, you have a king size single with a top of the range mattress, fan, air conditioning, and a desk to work on.

Guest access

During your stay you have access to the new kitchen, with all s/s appliances, dinning room, spacious lounge room, laundry and outside back yard area with garden and gas bar-b-que. The front veranda is a good spot to relax with a cocktail, and watch the world go by.

Interaction with guests

My wife and I have lived in Cairns for over 30 years, so if you need any information on what Cairns has to offer, just ask. I am semi- retired now, so I have a bit of spare time during the day if you require a ride locally. We quite often take our little tinny out for a run around the inlet, fishing and sight seeing, and you are more than welcome to join in. A relaxing way to get a closer look at the Cairns water ways.

Other things to note

We have two little dogs that we adore, and I am sure you will as well.
They are both well behaved, and friendly.

We had a wonderful time in Colin and Christine' house. They were very friendly,helpful and the communication was always perfect. Also there two dogs were very calm and pleasant. Every place at the house was clean and ordinary. The kitchen was very good equipped and we found everything for cooking and our breakfast. The house is good located it takes just 5 minutes by walk to the supermarkt and 10 minutes to downtown where a lot of difference restaurants and shops are. We can recommended that place to everyone.

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.
