The location is stunning, set back from the busy coast and snuggled among the leafy foothills, it is the perfect balance of quiet and convenience. The accommodation is newly renovated and beautifully presented, clean, comfortable, practical, spacious, and fully equipped.
What really made it feel like we were at home away from home was the warmth of Rod, Evelyn and the family.. Always happy to help and share but without being intrusive in the slightest :)
Thank you so much, Malou and I look forward to the next visit !! :)
Rodney and Evelyn’s place is nestled in the foothills of the rainforest hills and they provide guests with a magical experience.
Their Queenslander home is equipped with lots of room and generous facilities.
I loved the tasteful decor and modern appliances which makes staying there luxurious.
Their aqaponics is a feat of engineering and more than a gimic as it provides food for their family and some.
Rodney, bring an environmental scientist, is a host with a wealth of local ecological knowledge which he shares with his guests.
Having a whole ground floor and outdoor covered area means that anyone who stays will find a comfortable place to find peace and rest.
If you want technology or to catch a new release movie, they have that too as well as a pool table.
It is close to town but far enough away to have the best of both worlds.
Any traveller will enjoy their stay.
A beautiful setting with majestic views of the mountains. Quiet peaceful neighbourhood. Friendly hosts
Rod & Evelyn are wonderful hosts, sharing their large family home with our extended family. There is heaps of space, a decent kitchen and pool table. They are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Rod is a fantastic tour guide as well sharing his knowledge and love of the natural world. I would highly recommend Rod & Evelyns home as the best place to stay in Cairns. We've been before and we'll be back again!
We had the most wonderful holiday. Such a family family place to stay. Our hosts were so welcoming and made us feel so relaxed. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. There were lots of games and activities for our children. The position is close to everything. Definitely one of our best holidays.
Thanks Rod and Evelyn
Rod and Evelyn are positively the most warm-hearted people I know. We stayed with them multiple times throughout our travels, and each time we had a new adventure with the family. Between the comfy beds, the homey feel of the space, and the smiling faces greeting you, there is no better place to stay around Cairns. We were invited to go on adventures with the family, be it spotlighting, fishing, or a road trip to find casowaries, we were never left behind. I cannot say enough good about this family or their home.
