We originally came in December 2013 for 2weeks and stayed at 22 Scott Street. Not expecting to end up back in Cairns, we returned to the sharehouse and ended up staying 3months....

“The rooms on the poolside closer to the back (i.e. not the front room on both levels) have no neighbours except for a dive company. It means no-one is looking in your window - it's a bit more private.”
