About Marita D'Arcy
My name is Marita and I have lived in Cairns for 24 years, I was born in Melbourne, but have lived in Darwin, Broome (W.A) and Hervey Bay (Qld). I have been renovating houses and units in country Queensland since 2006. My son Fyscher is a carpenter and we decided to join as partners and renovate houses here in Cairns. Pandanus House is our second development together, we could visualise the potential of a 'holiday let' and Pandanus House grew from that idea. Hope you enjoy the outcome, Marita.
Marita D'Arcy purchased this House in 2013
Why Marita D'Arcy chose Whitfield
This property was in a great location and my son and myself could well see it's potential by dividing the wrap around porch into 2 studio units. Therefore creating a 3 bedroom house plus 2 studios. One studio is attached to the house by an internal door, the other completely separate. I've only included one studio for the purposes of this listing. But all in all this complex can accommodate up to 10 people for big events such as weddings.
What makes this House unique
Marita is the go to person, for local's wanting accommodation for their friends and family. She runs the whole show from co ordinating repairs to meet and greet. She is also an artist and occasionally uses Pandanus House as an art gallery, her paintings are displayed and for sale on the property. The art is simple, beautifully displayed and always changing, all art is for sale. Edge Hill attracts locals who daily attempt the walking trails of the 'red, yellow and blue arrows'. We have the Chinese Gardens and surrounding parks include a children's adventure park.

Very clean and comfortable in great location.
We really enjoyed our stay at Pandanus House. Lovely garden, very comfy beds with nice linen and pillows, great TV and comfy couches. Close to the city and airport, and good choice of nice cafes and restaurants close by. Everything to make a holiday very easy and relaxing.

Exactly as it looks ... and then some!
So thrilled to pull up and walk through this lovely home - added the 'plus' to our reunion. Great location, great facilities, great hostess - VERY comfy beds and very clean.
Beautifully appointed, great location!
We stayed 7 nights at the well maintained Pandanus House and Gardenia Wing, accommodating all 8 of us very comfortably. The kitchen, laundry and pantry were all well equipped and adequately stocked. It was very convenient to have the push bikes as we could cycle to the nearby shops, cafés and botanic gardens. The children enjoyed the space and adults liked cooking on the weber barbecue! The house was perfectly located as it was close to the airport, local attractions and highways to explore Crystal Cascades and Atherton Tablelands.
Thank you Marita, for having us at your property and for the good communication throughout our booking and staying process. Keep up your good efforts!
We loved it
The house is perfectly equipped for a large family stay. The rates are very good. We had a brilliant 14 days in Cairns and the fact we could return to this place to relax and chill out before the next adventure was fantastic. It provides real flexibility to your plans. Marita is a fine host who makes sure everything is ship shape and ready for you. Location is both quiet and on the other hand less than 10 minutes from pretty much everything in the city. I would highly recommend Pandanus house for a family holiday in Cairns.
Davies Creek is a rocky river close to Mareeba which is truly magical to spend time and really relax.
