A lovely unit with absolutely everything there! Dogs made very welcome and Sue was a wonderful host. Excellent value and would recommend to anyone. We were pleasantly surprised after ringing around Cairns to find somewhere that welcomes dogs!

Sue is a great hostess and unobtrusively makes a great stay. The studio has everything plus more! If you have a dog everything is there for them. We are using sue for those relatives who visit Cairns.

We arrived with our dog in Cairns not knowing what to expect of the accommodation, and found that it far exceeded our expectations in every regard.

A wonderful family holiday for us staying with Sue in her beautiful studio. She has thought of everything, was most generous, helpful and kind. We would stay here again and again. Close to the bus, fabulous pool, easy bus or taxi rides to airport, town, marina. Excellent value
