Description

The Space

Modern self contained apartment with 1 bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette and living area. The apartment is on the ground floor of our high set "Queenslander" heritage house in Stratford; 10kms from Cairns city centre. There is a double bed in the separate bedroom, dining table and chairs in the kitchen area and a comfortable lounge in the living room which also has a TV, DVD player and a small collection of movies. You can have full use of our pool, garden, washing machine etc. Free wifi. easy parking in front of the house. Bus service is 100m away! We live above the apartment, and love to have a chat whenever we are around. During the weekdays Rowan and I are at work, so quite often you have the pool and garden to yourself. Stratford is a quiet neighbourhood - there are two sets of shops with cafes and restaurants each 20 minutes walk away. There is a very popular Thai restaurant (Siam Orchid Spicy) within walking distance to the south and if you walk towards the north there is a very cool french bakery and coffee shop with delicious pastries and bread! Guests have full access to the pool and the washing machine My husband Rowan and I work full time so you might not see us too much. However, I am always pleased to stop and have a chat and share tips about some of the great places to see in our area. I love our neighbourhood - it is tranquil and rural with cane fields on one side and a rainforest clad mountain on the other. As we live just 10km away from town we like to ride our bikes to work most days. I would recommend visitors either hire a car or borrow one of our bikes (we have some extra bikes, but please give us some notice so that I can make sure they are serviced!) There is a public bus service - the Sunbus stops about 300 m from our house on Kamerunga Road and will take you in to town in about 15 to 20 minutes or to Redlynch shopping centre, in about 10 minutes. The timetable is available here: (website hidden)_121122_Timetable_newv3_WR.pdf. There should be a couple of beach towels and some sunscreen in the bathroom cupboard. If you need any more towels or toiletries, please let me know!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
