“Great centrally located unit”
Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This centrally located unit in a lovely suburb of Cairns was well equipped with all we required to have an enjoyable holiday, could not fault it, friendly owner Lee (lives in back unit) respected our privacy and has good knowledge of local tourism. Tess the dog is very friendly also. Would certainly return if ever in Cairns again.

“Home away from home”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

My sister and I stayed in early September. We were really impressed. The place is a short walk to/from the café strip in Edge Hill and about 10-15 mins drive to the City centre of Cairns. Very close to the Botanic Gardens. It was really peaceful and comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more and we didn't want to leave! Also brilliant artwork inside the apartment which Lee has painted - very inspirational. Thank you Lee & your cute dog Tess!

“Comfortable Apt in garden setting”
Reviewed 25 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A spacious, immaculate apartment in a lovely residential area. It was modern and bright and only a few minutes walk to the local shopping village where there were numerous options for food and coffee. We only stayed two nights and enjoyed the visits from Tess the resident Scotty dog. Lee the owner lived in the villa behind and runs a hairdressing salon next to the rental apartment. We did notice the chatter of clients as there was a common wall separating the two and wondered if some wall insulation may reduce the noise from the salon.
It had good wifi and the use of a washing machine in the outside laundry. There was aircon but we preferred the overhead fans which provided sufficient cool air.
We would recommend but travellers should be aware of the closeness of the salon and associated noise on the days it operates.

“Spotlessly clean, very comfortable and welcoming.”
Reviewed 3 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We felt very at home here. Everything we needed for a relaxing stay was supplied and Lee's original art added to the experience. The location is handy to the stunning Botanic Gardens and the cultural precinct. If you enjoy fine aboriginal art, there are several excellent galleries in Cairns. The airport is only minutes away when you need to fly home. Not that you will want to leave!

“Great host, apartment and location”
Reviewed 21 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We stayed at this apartment for four nights while visiting Cairns. Evelyn is a great host and the apartment is very nice and comfortable. It is very close to a bus stop, the Edge Hill cafes and shops and the Cairns Botanic Garden. Special mention goes to Tess the West Highland terrier. We highly recommend this apartment if visiting Cairns.
