Perfect for the whole family!

What a perfect house for our vacation in Cairns and surrounding areas. The central location made it easy to see a new part of northern Queensland everyday. The beds were comfortable and rooms spacious. The open layout was great for visiting and cooking some of our own meals. Having a washer and dryer was a life saver and allowed us to pack less. I would highly recommend this house to anyone but especially anyone with kids. The park is just a few houses down and right by the beach with the safety swimming area. The pool is in the front yard but the landscaping provides great privacy and the double gate makes it safe for kids to not have access. There is a tub in the hall bathroom for bathing the kiddos or soaking after a long day. The grocery store, gas station and some restaurants are only 5 minutes away. The owners have been super nice and answered any touristy questions I had. I would certainly stay here again if we came back to Cairns.

We loved staying in this house for a week with four adults and four kids! It's in a quiet area right across the street from a lovely beach. There's a kids play gym just a few steps away, as well as a netted swimming area. It's an easy drive to Cairns or Port Douglas. The house itself was spotlessly clean and well maintained, and had everything we needed for our stay. Brent and Narelle were helpful and accommodating. Highly recommended!

Highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay (July 2013). The location is excellent, right across the street from a quiet beach; this was really one of the best features of the house. We mostly had the beach to ourselves although plenty of people walked or jogged by because it's on a beautiful stretch leading up to Palm Cove. It was also a central location for many other activities; 35 minutes from Port Douglas, 20 minutes from Cairns.

The inside was very nice; two rooms with a king bed in one and queen in the other and one room with 2 bunk beds (sleeps 4 and was good for the kids). It was plenty big enough for us; we ate breakfast there most mornings unless we were out early on an excursion. The kitchen is not large but fine and had good appliances. Nice sofas and a large screen TV. There was also a dryer which we used most days.

The pool was a bit smaller than it looked in the picture but that's fine when you have the beach 30 feet from your front door. It was a quiet neighborhood and we felt safe. It has a small town type feel.

We highly recommend the house and have done that with our friends who said they're interested in visiting the Great Barrier Reef.

Quiet Oasis Clifton Beach

  • 5 of 5

My family met up in Cairns following the Melbourne Iron Man race, flying in from the U.S. and Japan. We have small children and were looking for a family friendly location to relax and sight see. The Clifton house was fantastic for our needs. It was 20 minutes from the Cairns airport and close to a wild life park, crocodile farm, the Kuranda sky rail, and Tjapukai cultural village. It was 25 minutes to the port for Barrier Reef excursions. Our girls loved the beach just steps away with the netted swimming area close by. The pool was lovely, the house comfortable with amenities to meet our needs. We loved sitting on the porch playing games. The nearby playground and foot bridge were entertainment for our children. Restaurants and a shopping store were minutes away. The owners were great, called to check in with us, and allowed us to check in early in the morning after an international flight. If we return to Cairns, we'll be back to visit Clifton.
