This spacious elegant Queenslander is nestled in the iconic North Queensland rain- forest. The dwelling is an excellent space for yoga enthusiasts, meditation and relaxation.

Nature is on the door step where the surrounding area is a bird watcher and hikers paradise. Whilst the surroundings suggest an isolated retreat, you are in fact only a 20 minute walk from the famous Kuranda Village and a mere 30 minute drive to Cairns where access to the Port will take you to the great barrier reef.

The space

This house was hand crafted by us. I am now divorced ,over 20 years ago and has been admired by many for the use of the property trees milled to build parts of the home.
The house offers a spacious veranda wrapping around the house, and has an open style plan inside where the kitchen dining and living area meet.
There are two main bedrooms with queen beds and an office, come bedroom with a single bed .
The house has a dining area plus outdoor veranda dining space and a gazebo near the pool.
This house exudes comfort and homeliness while it also offers a unique tropical nature experience.

Guest access

You have access to the entire home , this includes the pool and gazebo with table and chairs plus sun lounger. In the house there are 2 main bedrooms with queen beds , there is also a single bed/ when not a bed then a couch in the 3rd room / office/ library where there is a large desk and chair and a supply of books you may read and take with you. The house has laundry with detergent supplied . In the kitchen there is a coffee machine plus all cooking facilities plus a BBQ on the veranda for you to use.

Interaction with guests

I will be available by phone or txt, if guests want my time I am willing to give it freely, otherwise I value the space of others . Having been a resident here for over 20 years I have good knowledge of the tourist attractions and the other places of attraction where the locals enjoy

Other things to note

Tea , coffee maker, milk, and milk frother and sugar provided.
Microwave plus kitchen stables- olive oil, salt and pepper for example.

While there is no aircon in the house , Kuranda is cooler and fans are enough to keep you cool.
I do live on the property, in a smaller house mostly hidden by the forest, I work full time so I'm out a lot, I'm always available by txt if you need anything

Vera was an incredibly thoughtful and welcoming host. We spent the last three nights of our honeymoon at her house and absolutely loved it! It was very private and offered a beautiful outlook onto rainforest, while still being very close to the shops and markets of Kuranda (about a 15 minute walk). We would highly recommend staying here.

A wonderful experience! The pictures of the house on the web site are not enough to describe how beautiful the place really is. A very charming and kind host! We couldn't ask for any better. I higly recommend Vera and her lovely place. A piece of heaven in Earth.

A quaint cottage in the rainforest- wake to the sound of birds and sleep with wallabies and possums. A real break from the Cairns and only 15 minute drive up the hill. Highly recommended.
