Fiona and David were great hosts! Very accommodating and friendly, and provided all the amenities and extras needed for a relaxing and stress free holiday. They really go above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and make your trip special. The property itself is in a quiet area but not far from the town centre atall, a 10 minute drive if that! The garden area is lovely, with lots of sun and shaded areas too. We would definitely stay again if returning to Cairns!

I will start with the positives - the home was absolutely lovely, large with everything we could need, and very clean. Fiona was also very lovely. Unfortunately we didn’t have a good experience with David and had a few other issues. First off, we didn't have access to all 4 bedrooms, even though it was listed as 4 bedrooms. When we requested the double room that was locked, Fiona went ahead and locked the single room. I understand there is no need to do extra laundry, but I would state in the description that you might not have access to all bedrooms so this is known upfront. Not a big issue though. We also immediately noticed it was hard to cool the place down. The AC controls were all locked down. The main bedroom blew out luke warm air and the kitchen AC wasn't working. The house rules stated to turn the ACs off upon leaving, but we ended up leaving some of them on since we had kids and it took too long for the place to cool down upon our return. The toilet, bathroom and kitchen were already miserably hot but we couldn’t have the kids bedrooms at an unbearable temperature when we came home for naptime. On our second day everyone went out for coffee except myself and our infant (who was still sleeping). As soon as they left, all the ACs immediately turned off. We figured out that they were controlling our ACs from downstairs. Upon going downstairs to ask if they could be turned back on, David said that he saw everyone leave so he had turned them off. After I told him I was still upstairs with the baby he proceeded to interrogate me as to who had left the house and if we had extra guests. It was upsetting. First off that he didn’t believe me and second off that we were being monitored that closely. We had a discussion about the AC and he did end up trying to resolve the problem (and also fixing the kitchen AC) but the rest of our time spent at the house was ruined. It was super uncomfortable knowing we were being watched every time we came and went from the house and it was hard to relax. The whole vibe was very much about saving money and strictly abiding the rules. David even advised they had removed all blankets from the house so that people wouldn’t be able to sleep with the AC on. We are well traveled and are always respectful of other people’s rules and property, plus as environmentalists, we completely understand the need to be energy efficient, but this seemed over the top. The house is very old with very energy inefficient windows, which obviously isn’t the fault of the guests, who shouldn’t be made to feel uncomfortable during their stay. We are not guests to keep the AC running...

Respuesta de Fiona:
Thankyou for your feedback. I'm very sorry you had a bad experience about the air conditioning. We try our best to allow everyone to have a comfortable stay, hence the reason why we installed air conditioners in all the rooms, including the kitchen. Traditionally, you would not find an air conditioner in kitchens of most homes in Cairns, however, we realise that Cairns can be very hot and humid and most people who aren't used to tropical weather, can find it uncomfortable. The reason why I closed the fourth room off was because I knew you only wanted to use 3 of them, as the baby was sleeping in a cot I provided for you. If I was to leave the fourth unused room open, then it would take even longer for the house to cool down for you.

First, I had very good communication with Fiona upfront via AirBnB email. I asked a lot of questions which have been answered very quickly. We were very well welcomed! The house is very comfortable, well equipped and the swimming pool very pleasant with the hot weather we had! The house is not located in the center of Cairns, but 5' by car. Cairns is a beautiful city and I recommend the great reef barrier which is magnifique!

David and I have lived here for 16 years and always lived downstairs while renting the rooms out upstairs to single people on a permanent basis.

We stopped doing that so we could renovate which lead us to consider Airbnb. Initially we thought it would be just a part time thing, but it has exceeded out expectations and now we are doing this full time.

Over time, we’ve had the opportunity to continue updating and our most recent was to install split system air conditioners to all the bedrooms and living area and update the kitchen with a brand new stove, benchtops and cupboard doors.

Our favourite way to travel is cruising, because we only unpack once and everything is there for us. We can go to different destinations, while enjoying the cruising lifestyle. We can do as much or as little as we want.
On our cruising travels, we’ve seen New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii, Vancouver and Alaska and well as the South Pacific Islands. Our next cruise is to Singapore, via Malaysia.

I’ve always had the travel bug which started when I began working.
I did the camping bus tour thing around Europe for 3months.
I’ve also spent 6 weeks travelling the East and West Coast of USA, along with driving around Louisiana and down Florida Keys. My favourite place was New York and would happily live there.

David has since caught the travel bug and together we have holidayed in Vanuatu, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Bali.
We’ve also stayed with friends in South Korea and Japan which is amazing to spend time with locals and see things from their perspective.

We’ve both driven the full length of Australia on the East Coast, including Tasmania and most of the West Coast.
We experienced the Indian Pacific train from Perth to Sydney and travelled to remote parts of outback Australia.
We love to experience different cuisines and just hop on a local bus and let it take us through the suburbs to wherever!
Two of our favourite places are Vanuatu and Bali as the people in both places are so friendly and always appear happy.

Most of my working life has been as a Psychiatric Nurse, but I’ve also sold timeshare and was Victorian Sales Manager for a large Australian cosmetic company.
Since moving to Tropical North Queensland, I lived in Mission Beach for 4 years. The first two years was waitressing and the next two years I was Sales and Marketing Manager for one of the main resorts there. In that time I travelled extensively throughout Queensland and Northern Territory doing promotional trips.

The reason why we've lived in Cairns for so long is the weather, the laid back lifestyle and there’s always something to do or see.
When Queensland Tourism coined the phrase, “Beautiful one day, Perfect the next,” they were pretty close to the mark. Even the heavy rain in the wet season is quite special.

Sasha our dog will probably greet you at the gate, however our cat Jemma is very shy, so you may not see her during your stay.
