Where we want to go
Description of our house
We offer a large two storey contemporary house in a gated community adjacent to one of Cairns' premier golf courses. (http://www.paradisepalms.com.au The two balconies overlook the private pool, large back yard and the rainforest clad mountain range. Small kangaroos can sometimes be seen feeding near the rear of our property. The house has 3 bedrooms (4 Poster King, King & Single), 3 bathrooms and study. Being inside a gated community, the area is very safe. Sunny rear balconies are great for relaxing on our outdoor sun lounges.

We are located 20km (12 miles) north of Cairns CBD. It takes 5 mins to drive to Palm Cove, with a further 5 sandy beaches within an 8 minute drive. The Great Barrier Reef is only a short cruise away for some of the best scuba diving. There are many attractions worth visiting in and around Cairns; we can arrange enough tourist information to keep you busy for ages. This link gives a great idea of the main attractions available for tourists: http://www.partner.viator.com Or you may just choose to enjoy the weather and relax and read books, swim, or play Golf at the local course; the choice is yours!
Something about ourselves
We are Tony and Sharyn and we may sometimes travel with 2 other adult family members if they can manage to line up holidays with us. We have had the opportunity of living in England (Dorset) for 3 years, Germany for 2 years and have travelled extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia. I love to snow ski and play golf, whilst Sharyn who is a semi-retired ESL instructor enjoys sightseeing, shopping, sewing, charity work and playing squash. We enjoy experiencing new cultures, and especially love interesting/tasty food!
