Servicios y zonas comunes
Guests are welcome to use the fully equipped kitchen. Living area. Laundry. Kitchen staples such as salt pepper, cooking oil, balsamic vinegar, condiments, butter etc are provided for your convenience.
Our home is a free standing home (not an apartment) so only one space with 1 group of guests at a time.
There is a private annexe off the house that has been locked off from the rest of the house. I do sometimes stopover if I can't return back to my farm or I have business to do in Cairns. But mostly I leave guests to their own devices and space. I am able to help guests with questions or advice over the phone.
Atención a los huéspedes
Most guests will have the use of the house for their exclusive use. We have a farm that is on the Atherton Tablelands, which means there is always work to do. After welcoming guests and answering any questions, you have a comfortable home to relax in and make your base whilst visiting the region. I am usually available to help you decide on what to visit and where good places are to eat etc. Whatever your preferences. Tourist maps and brochures are for you to use. I can assist with your transport arrangements, if needed.
It is important that guests have a telephone that they can be reached upon. Wifi in Australia is not available in as many places as you may expect. Though it is getting better. One of my previous guests found it particularly difficult when getting in touch with out internet access. I do generally find a quick phone call can sort out any issues.
Otros aspectos destacables
If you are flying to Cairns and arriving on a morning flight you will have to consider that as my home can be fully booked throughout the high season your arrival at the home is limited to checkin time of 3pm. If you require the home from early morning and it is available the day before I suggest you book the night before your arrival. This home is a single dwelling full sized house of which there are no duplicates. So early checkin is almost invariably NOT available. As this impacts on guests leaving on which check out time is 11am. The time in between allows for a thorough clean and turnover subject to the level of cleanliness left. Please consider how you will fill in time and suggest heading into town to the Pier and Information Centre. Swimming at Lagoon a favourite. Some tours are good to do on the first day of arrival such as Skyrail and Kuranda Rail. Fittzroy Island ferry leaves at 9.30am Green Island leaving at 9am or 1pm. We are always happy to share our knowledge of the area. We are still always wanting to explore and experience the beauty of the area. Our farm on the Tablelands we believe is in one of the most beautiful areas of the Far North. If you need information on what is a good reef trip or places to visit please just ask. If we don't know ourselves we can find out.
Breakfast essentials are provided to get you started in the morning.
With Polished wood floors we ask you remove your shoes at the door.
We ask that smoking be only outdoors. Please do not keep or consume food in bedrooms. There is ample room in kitchen.
We have renovated the home with the environment in mind. Please ensure lights and fans are switched off if you leave our home to conserve electricity and lower our carbon footprint. The use of clothes dryer should be used at an absolute minimum. Clothes hoist are for use and usually will dry clothes overnight. If the clothes dryer is used extensively it will incur an extra fee payable on departure.
On departure please dispose of food rubbish in bin adjacent to laundry. Also ensure kitchen is left as you found it. Free of food stuffs, spills etc. If pots or pans, plates are left dirty and require me washing up you will incur a cleaning fee.
My partner Rick and I have traveled and worked extensively throughout Australia and Asia. We have experienced some of our best holiday memories when staying in special places with special people. So now we would like to offer the same. We enjoy the outdoors so with a small rainforest on our block we let the outdoors in rather than lock it out. We have renovated with the environment in mind. We encourage recycling. We are particularly conscious of our impact on the environment and we ask guests to respect our desire to conserve energy. We can suggest itineraries to tour the area catering for all different interests. We can also suggest some great places to visit that are not saturated by tourists that are little bits of paradise or even to our own farm with a crystal clear river on the boundary up in the Misty Mountains. Our Beef Cattle farm on the Tablelands is our other interest. Our desire is protect and preserve our land for the future. We are trying to also minimise our impact on our farmland by preventing erosion and eradicating weeds. Our River flows to the Great Barrier Reef so we take our farm practices seriously. We love our cattle and Harry the dog (Australian Cattle Dog) is a constant companion but he does not live indoors. We also love that we have Tree Kangaroos, the occasional Cassowary on our property at Millaa Millaa and in Cairns we still get visits in our rainforest from Torres Strait Pigeons, Scrubfowls and Bandicoots.
