The Pool House, Collins Avenue, Edge Hill
Edge Hill - 4km north of the CBD at the base of Mt Whitfield Conservation Park
The Pool House is a modern 3 bedroom house on a 3 acre hillside site which was part of an historic property known as Arcadia. The original house, which is next door, is the oldest house in Edge Hill dating from 1904. The Pool House sleeps 5 guests and has a beautiful swimming pool adjoining the Living Room. The home has everything you could need for a fabulous holiday.
Collins Avenue, which passes through the middle of the Botanical Gardens is the most beautiful street to drive or walk in Cairns. Take an early morning walk along Collins for breakfast at the Botanical gardens restaurant. Giant Raintrees draped with ferns , lush beds of ginger and gorgeous geometrical fan palms decorate the footpath. Colourful Brush-Turkeys often cross the road or you may hear the strange haunting call of the Orange-footed Scrub Fowl.
On the way, you pass the Tanks Arts Centre which has an exciting mix of concerts , theatre and art exhibitions. The morning market at the Tanks on the last Sunday of the month (April-November) is lots of fun too.

Other things to note
This home is close to the Cairns Airport and you will have some noise as planes land and take off. This passes in a 20 second window for each flight. Cairns is not as busy as the metropolitan airports, but if you are looking for a very quiet location this would not be a suitable choice for you.
The Pool House is a lovely home set on 3 acres of land in Edge Hill Cairns, it has adjoining private homes in the area and outdoor noise must be kept to minimum at all times. External loud music is not permitted due to the home being in a built up area and for the respect of others on the hill side.
Small children will need supervision as the gardens are un-fenced from the surrounding rainforest
The home must be left in a clean and tidy state on departure with all kitchen equipment washed up and put away. Housekeeping takes care of all linen washing, floors and bathroom cleaning. There is an additional charge of $35 per cleaner per hour if the home is left in a messy condition and they have extra work to do.
This is a 'No Party' House. We can't take bookings for Weddings, events or functions, sorry. Numbers at the pool house are limited to those registered to stay.
