The space

Come stay, relax, and enjoy this gem of holiday home.

Situated in inner city Cairns, it is close to everything - restaurants, cafes, ferry terminal, city restaurants, esplanade, beaches, botanical garden, municipal pool, airport. It is the premier location in Cairns.

One of the rare, federation style historical home in Cairns, with beautiful original features carefully renovated to combine with modern comfort and style.

There are 4 bedrooms - 3 full sized bedrooms and one library/ sitting room/ bedroom.

Every room is fully airconditioned and has ceiling fans.

There are two bathrooms - one bath/ shower, separate toilet, and a master bedroom ensuite.

Beautiful lounge room with original black bean wooden flooring throughout, original local marble window sills, and a large open plan family kitchen with original slate flooring and Queenslander style glass doors opening onto the front and back deck, looking out into the tropical garden.

A fully safety fenced lagoon style pool surrounded by tropical plants.

Family friendly with children's cubby house, sand pit and swing in the tropical garden.

The property is surrounded by beautiful landscaped garden with plant variety from nearby Cairns botanical garden.

There are 2 secure parking areas on site, but lots of on street parking.

The best part is the location - set in one of the original streets in Cairns, full of other beautifully preserved Queenslander homes, surrounded by cafes and restaurants just 2 minutes walk from the cottage. Botanical gardens and the famous "Tanks" theatre and Edge Hill markets, twighlight cinema, are all 5 minutes walk from the cottage. There is a local village hub with many amenities such as a tapas restaurant, japanese and sushi restaurant, convenience store, local gourmet butcher, and several excellent take away restaurants.

There are several of parklands and playground 2 minutes walk away for families. The famous local rainforest walking track "red arrow" is 5 minutes walk away.

Cairns holiday cottage is in Edge Hill, the cafe district of Cairns, only 5 minutes drive away from the airport and 5 minute drive away from the city centre, the Great Barrier Reef ferry terminal. The Cairns municipal pool with 4 Olympic size pools and special children's pool, is 5 minutes away, as well as the Cairns international tennis centre located next to the pool.

Come and enjoy Cairns like a local, and never have to get into your car.

Alice and Brain is very kind and friendly. The check in is smooth and Brain also came to introduce the house and surrounding to us. They kindly gave us all the help include the mosquito repelling and the information in city :) The house is fully equipped, quiet and cozy. We are 2 families 6 people and we all enjoyed the time in this house.

Beautiful house really close to the botanical gardens and great walking tracks. Started every day with a jog through the red arrow followed by a coffee a stone's throw from the front door, topped off with a swim in the beautiful pool to cool down. Will definitely be back 10/10

I love travelling. Especially now with two little boys and a busy job as a doctor, we love staying at airbnb houses when we travel the world, where we get to live like a local. I hope our guests can feel the same when they stay at our cottage, and add to their holiday experience.
