Property and Executor excellent

  • 5 of 5

Both the property and the owner were excellent. The house was immaculate, with a fully stocked kitchen for culinary preparation. The secluded location of the pool gave a private area to relax at the end of each busy day, and has plenty of room for dining or entertaining. This is an outstanding property, and we would happily stay here again. The only thing of note is that the local grocer's close at 6PM, so make sure you stock up early in the day, or you're out of luck:)

Great Weekend Away

  • 5 of 5

We are 9 boys who found the venue very accomodating. The pool was great and all kitchen facilities were provided. Mary was aware we had scuba diving and was kind enough to provide 9 additional beach towels which came of very good use on the day for us.

Mary's professionalism and prompt updates ensured our stay was smooth. She also took on the role of being our booking agent and provided discounts for skydiving and scubadiving which really helped us a lot. Her recommendations of the companies were also great as we enjoyed both diving experiences. Its our first time visiting Cairns, and we owe it to Mary for it being a huge success.

The minor reason for the 4 star for location is the 23min drive to town. However the view was splendid from the pool and the suburb was quiet and peaceful.

Perfect Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday house - everything you need to relax. Only downside is that it's a little bit isolated from the city and restaurants. But great for seclusion and relaxation!

We'll be back. Best vacation in a decade.

  • 5 of 5

We have mates in Cairns, and when we said "this place in Redlynch, or a place in Palm Cove", they all said "that place in Redlynch!". And boy they weren't wrong. We had just a fantastic time. We'll definitely book this place again next we're in Cairns.
