A unique location, lovely home. Well equipped. We were a large group of 8 and the home accommodated our needs well. The location is brilliant, beautiful views everywhere you look and so close to everything. Wish I could have stayed longer.

What a lovely B&B this is. It really is a one-off. The room is very comfortable, with a balcony that overlooks a billabong, which is full of birdlife, including laughing Kookaburrahs. It's conveniently located for anything you want to see in north Queensland. Jenenne is a terrific hostess and provided easily the best breakfast we had on our 4-week trip... More

Possible the best place we've ever stayed in. Location, wildlife, host, breakfasts - you name it, it's got it - perfectly. WiFi - yes, it was a bit hit and miss but what the hell, there was life before the Internet. And the laugh of the Kookaburra will soon take your mind away from erratic Google. To wake up to... More

I wish we could rate this place higher than excellent. It's absolutely fantastic. Our planned 2 nights turned into 4 as we loved everything about it. It's dog friendly, (we travel with our 2 dogs) perfectly located near cairns, a short walk to the beach, pub next door with good meals, fabulous breakfast on the deck overlooking the billabong, and...

This was an idyllic place to stay on our trip to Cairns! We avoided a lot of the tourist hustle and bustle, and had a nice quiet place to retreat to. There is a fun little beach within walking distance that has a nice cafe and market. Other than that, though, you feel like you're in the middle of the... More

“Ask for a room on the far side of the house or in the private guest house. The room right off the patio gets a bit of noise from other guests if they get up early for breakfast.”
