You also get to enjoy all the amenities of a private residence for a truly unique and memorable stay. Why don’t you take off your shoes and settle in for a while? Your holiday just got upgraded.

Seeing all the best attractions is bound to make you fall in love with Cairns. Who knows, you may even be tempted to extend your stay.
