“Fab host, fab location, fab extras!”
Reviewed 14 September 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We stayed in this apartment for two weeks and were quite happy with our choice. The apartment is located just a few blocks from the center of the Edge Hill village--lots of restaurants, shops and a small grocer within easy walking distance. The Botanical Garden is only two blocks further. We could drive to the downtown area of Cairns within 15 minutes and the airport in less than that. There is also a bus on the next block that goes directly downtown.

The photos in the posting are very accurate –very stylish and roomy home. We usually stay in self-catered apartments when we travel. We have NEVER encountered a kitchen that was better equipped for cooking. Even a gas grill! And three ways to make coffee. Now that is my idea of heaven.

The open plan living and kitchen area is quite large—very spacious for just two. I think it would be comfortable for four also. Everything was super clean and in working order. The apartment was bright and cheery. The very comfortable beds and the quiet neighborhood made a good night sleep possible.

The rest of the house is as thoughtfully equipped as the kitchen, including beach towels, grill tools, basic spices, tea, guide books, and coffee table books on local history. Lee also provided a notebook of tourist brochures, restaurant menus, and maps showing locations for the grocer, butcher, bakery, etc.

The host was very helpful, greeting us immediately upon arrival with lots of good cheer and information. She gave us a tour of the apartment and showed us how to work the clothes washer and dryer, an extra that most hosts seem to forget.
Since the host lives in another house on the property, she was always available for questions but never invaded our privacy.

In short, we had a fabulous stay and will return on our next trip to Cairns.

Reviewed 25 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

Great; spacious apartment in a wonderful location. Lee and her dog Tess are great hosts that made us feel welcome.

Location by the Botanical Gardens is quiet without being too far from the downtown area.

Would recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Great apartment in a quiet location. Has everything you need and is quite spacious.
We found it good to use as a base for day trips to the many things to see and do around Cairns and was lovely to come 'home' to, to relax or cook a meal.
Thank you Lee ........ and of course, Tess.

“Cosy apartment in lush tropical surrounds”
Reviewed 30 July 2018 for a stay in July 2018

My partner and I stayed in Lee's apartment for just over a week and felt very at home. It is in a fabulous location, only a short walk to local shops and eateries ( which were excellent) so no need to drive, and also close to the beautiful botanical gardens which were spectacular! A very interesting area and arts precinct which was delightful to explore. The apartment was sparkling clean and very well equipped. We enjoyed several barbeques and sitting in the front garden. Lee was extremely welcoming and helpful. Thanks Lee for a lovely stay!
