Other things to note
Telstra has the better mobile coverage in North Queensland if you need to pick up a sim if you are coming in from overseas. I do have (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) if you have wifi. Hope this is helpful
Please leave the holiday house tidy on departure. SMOKING ONLY ON THE CONDITION YOU SMOKE DOWNSTAIRS OUTSIDE NEAR THE RIVER BANK PREFERRED, Thank You.
For years I worked in the hospitality industry whilst travelling. I decided to settle in tropical North Queensland as I found it a very beautiful and special place to live. My husband and I feel very lucky and blessed to have found this piece of paradise and those who have spent time with us, have shared how relaxing and beautiful the place is. It feels right to share this stunning part of Australia with travellers who have come to explore our wonderful country. I would not live any where else. Starting my own business 25 years ago in Beauty Therapy, it was there I realised I loved connecting with people and building many lifelong friendships which I treasure and still have today, Now in retirement, it is exciting to be starting my Airbnb, continuing my passion of connecting, laughing, seeing others enjoy their travels, swapping adventures and just being happy.
I could not imagine life without family & friends.
I like to be creative, cooking, sailing, reading & having friends and family for meals. I love travelling, learning from my experiences and doing new projects. I enjoy the theatre and music. My happy places are on the beach & being beside or on the water.
My motto is: People are important! We are here only for a short time, Do your best.
