We are welcoming and respectful of your privacy.

Cairns is a fantastic tropical city to visit or live. It is filled with loads of day activities, great restaurants and a fun nightlife. We live close enough to the city, esplanade and waterfront lagoon, Marlin Marina and Rusty's Markets for you to walk.

Guest access
Our Japanese Scuba Instructor and his family live upstairs in private residence. He has new baby and 4 yo son who is now quite active during the morning and day. Possible baby crying at night ....... so not suitable for all ........ its is a family home as well after all.
Our guests stay downstairs in the self contained share-house, and have free access to the gardens and pool.

Other things to note
Our quite hours are 10.00 pm till 6.00 am. Pool is available from 6.00 am.
Active 5 yo boy lives upstairs residence and rises early. The house can be quite active in the early morning with guests getting ready for early tours or checking out for flights, and we do need to clean, setup and vacuum the rooms in the morning for new guests checking in, so not best if you are wanting to sleep in after a big night out on the town.


We also offer the 2 Day / 1 Night Great Barrier Reef diving and snorkeling tour to Thetford Reef on Saturdays. Special pricing starts from $320 per person snorkeling, and $440 per person certified diving with 6 dives. All scuba diving can be organised on board with the dive crew.
We are departing 7.30am Marlin Marina Cairns. Boarding from 7.00am. Returns next day approximately 3.00pm.
The M.V Rum Runner is a 20m Motor Sailer (no sailing with out engine) with bunk style beds, twin and share accommodation,share male and female toilets and WC (means shower and toilet are in the same compartment), and we like to cater to the backpacker and budget traveler market. These trips offers the opportunity to meet other divers, snorkelers and travelers from around the world and have a great time with an experienced crew on the reef!
Cheers and hope to see you on Rum Runner!

Staying this close to Cairns Central everything is close by; KFC and McDonald's / McCafe are just down the road, great sushi place on Sheridan St, and easy to get Chinese Takeout on McLeod St. And there's always Cairns Central Shopping Centre with supermarket, food courts, cafes, and the cimena's.
Walking around town at night is fine, stay on the main lighted roads and McDonald's is open 24 hours. However it is not recommended to walk home alone in the very early hours of the morning. Best to get a cab.
