The space

It's a Large Spacious Open Plan type living House now - or its getting there !!
So there's plenty of room for people Not to be on top of each other
A Classic Highset Queenslander Centrally located all timber house (which is Cooler in the heat) has a warm Cosy Homely feel with polished wooden floors and highset Tongue and Grove ceilings typical of the Circa 1930-/50’s period that we have tried hard to keep as original feel as possible

Guest access

You can use the Large Capacity Heavy duty washing Machine (if you have been Traveling for a while?) and virtually everything else a standard house has, EG Iron if needed, Etc, - just ask - should be there somewhere ! ?

Interaction with guests

Its a 3 bedroom 3 bathroom highset (2 New) upstairs with most of the living area Downstairs
I have my own bed & bathroom area Upstairs as well
I am happy to answer any questions as I'm nearly a Local (with 17 out 20 years living in the area) as well as a member of CRTA = the Cairns Regional Tourist Association - I know a lot of the Opperators and Owners personally - so if I don't Know the Answer - I can Probably find out fairly easily ;-)

Other things to note

I share my House - LOTS - and I am used to Sharing
with my business as I work from home with two dedicated Office Spaces and my Administration lady (downstairs out front)
My 13yr Old Jack Russell X Dog "SPOT" - who is well socialised and well behaved and loves everyone as does "ISHTA" the Cat - when she feels like it (after all - she is a cat ) Burmese X - can be Overtly Exteremly friendly when she's in the mood
OH and most of the Time there is also a (1x) Flatmate Roommate Sharemate (depending on where your from ?) else you will see that room appear on the Listing as well ;-)

Sorry reformed Smokers are the worst ! and that Includes me Now and I REALLY don't like the smell - Sorry but NO SMOKING ANYWHERE on the Property - Respect is Cool - So if you could just leave the place as you found it and report any accidental damage - I suppose if you treat the place as if you would like me to - If was staying at your place then every thing will be sunshine

A fantastic AIRBnB experience! The room was private, comfortable, quiet, nice private bathroom and good shower, kitchen and fridge with everything I could want - and more. I made ten one twenty (as recommended by Charlie) my 'local' cafe in Edge Hill - walking distance from Charlie's place! Excellent coffee and nice cosy, welcoming cafe.

We had a great stay at Charlie's house! The airport pick up and drop off were awesome. Charlie is a very friendly guy and easy to communicate with. He helped us book our rental car and our sailing trip, so much easier with his help. The accommodation is very spacious, the bed is awesome and the shower is brand new. We specially loved the products from Sukin he provided! Thanks again for a lovely stay Charlie!

Extremely nice experience in Cairns! The house is very nice and convenient, better choice than stay in downtown central. Charlie has his own travel agency and helped us booked several local trips which are all quite worthy and amazing!

Charlie was a good commutator and went the extra distance to drive me to and from the airport. The apartment as clean and conveniently located to local restaurants (some of which offered discounts if you stayed with Charlie). I would highly recommend staying here!

Charlie User ProfileCharlie is a superhost.

Originally from Auckland New Zealand I did my Marketing degree at OTAGO University in the Southern most part of the South Island NZ
Having Travelled Europe Canada US and parts of Asia - I found Cairns - so friendly Clean Fresh Green and relaxed (not a fan of Big Cities) & warm !! in Winter !! ;-) - I thought - "this is about as good as your Going to get" - and settled - nearly 17 years ago now
With my business - I've slowly built up a Reputation for looking after people that I'm proud of as its all done via Word of Mouth which Cairns runs on (being like a small country town in the who knows who) So AirBnB - looking after people should come second nature
My miss spent youth was spent partly on the Snow Ski fields - after a couple of seasons culminating in an Canadian ski Instructors level 1 - but I have plenty of stories from all over
I did a lot of catering service work overseas including short private butler for Elton John and HRH Duke of Windsor - Prince Phillip (the Queen’s bit)
so I think I'm OK at looking after People
My primary interest is in people as I believe everyone has an interesting story or two to share ;-)
I enjoy bush walking, the Tropical waterfalls and the Long white sandy beaches that never seem to end here in Queensland (my local spots are a bit harder to get to but usually you are the only one there and the beauty of nature envelops you in peace and harmony)
I grow mostly Heliconas and Giant Gingers in the garden - that produce the most Awesome HUGE Tropical Flowers (thanks to close by Botanical Gardens) - that sometimes - I love the Idea I can just Go out the back and Fill the House with Huge Floral arrangements - but alas I can grow them - arranging them = different story - but everybody LOVES my semi Wild Tropical garden under the HUGE Cooling Rainforest Tree out back (to be seen)
So hopefully - I should know a thing or two about looking after people ? ;-)
