The property did not just live up to the expectations we had from its description on the web site, it surpassed them. It is extremely well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay, as well being very clean and well maintained. It is also very spacious and has a number of living spaces, which makes it very comfortable for a family (there were 5 of us). The outside of the house is great and where we spent most our time. The balcony is perfect for watching the sunrise. The patio has tables, chairs and a gas BBQ and is a great place for meals or for relaxing with a cool drink and a good book. There are even outside sockets if you want to use a laptop or other electrical device. The pool is large, clean and a great way of cooling off. The beach is literally a stone's throw from the house (we know this as we tested it with a tennis ball) and is fabulous for a swim in the sea or a stroll down to the shops and beach-side cafe. Jenny, who looks after the place, and Kim, the owner, were always helpful if we had any queries, responding quickly to texts or emails. Finally, the location is ideal for exploring all the wonderful sites and experiences Cairns and the surrounding area has to offer.
