Our home

Our home is a fab open plan tropical home, quite modern, on an acre of lush tropical gardens - complete with outdoor entertaining and relaxing areas. We love to entertain and our kitchen is the hub of our home - with walk in pantry and cool room. The garden is very private and the children will love the cubby, swing and trampoline. You can relax with a glass of wine while you watch the sun go down behind the range from our bougainvillea covered gazebo, or alternatively relax in the bali hut overlooking the pool and BBQ patio. All the bedrooms are air-conditioned and the children's room is complete with play area, TV,Playstation,DVD player and plenty of toys and games. The master suite has a large walk in robe, lovely ensuite and TV and DVD player. There are a further 2 bedrooms and a total of 3 bathrooms. Plenty of room - perhaps you could bring along the extended family or other friends. The house has other great facilities and a very well equipped office so that you can keep in touch with friends and family back home. We also have a loved feline friend, Smokey, a gorgeous dog, Tasman, a few chickens (lovely fresh eggs) and some tropical fish BUT these can be looked after by friends or neighbours should you prefer. We also have a cleaner that can come and tidy up for you once a week.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our house is only minutes off the main highway and about 20 minutes from Cairns International airport. The area is a very quiet acreage estate with very friendly neighbours and only local traffic. The northern beaches of Cairns are about 20 minutes north of the city, and our home is about 2 minutes from our local beach, Kewarra Beach. It has a lovely BBQ area and plenty of tables under the trees to enjoy a meal on the beach. We are only minutes from other great beaches and within easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and the gorgeous rainforests of Tropical North Queensland. Excellent shopping and terrific restaurants abound along the northern beaches of Cairns. There are dozens of tour operators that can show you the local sights and many of the sightseeing options are self drive. We have 2 cars (8 seater 4WD Toyota Prado & Subaru hatch)included in the exchange. The area has many major cultural and sightseeing attractions and we can provide plenty of brochures and recommended tour options for your stay. You might also like to consider shorter trips to some of the other great sights on the Tablelands and beyond.
