The king sized four poster bed, with ample room to work, rest & play, will give you the best introduction to Cairns tropical living.

The suite is set in a very private setting, even though we are in the city, you will feel as though you are close to nature. The gardens are full of exotic plants & animals including tree frogs, fish & birds. The suite has an outdoor kitchen including cooktops, microwave and fridge. The deluxe bathroom has a double rain shower. In the outdoor area you will find a gazebo with table & chairs for dining, working & relaxing.

We also live on the property, though use another entrance & part of the house away from the suite, its courtyard & gardens. You are welcome to visit all other areas of our garden whilst staying.
