Within a 2 minute walk from the property, watch turtles swim under the bridge in an open flowing creek, go for a walk or bike ride (we supply bikes) on a 15km path. Explore the rainforest, sugar cane fields, creeks, swimming holes and waterfalls. Play a game of tennis on the public courts or push the little ones on the swings at the children park. Then grab an ice cream or go for a swim.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most enjoyable stay at this property. The location was just wonderful - peaceful and child friendly, yet close to shops Mary, was a superb hostess. She has great local knowledge and arranged our tours and bookings without fuss. 10 out of 10 from us.

Beautiful home in scenic surroundings.

We loved our stay at Mary's. Everything was as described. The place was very comfortable and Mary was a friendly, helpful host. She even allowed us to help ourselves to fruit from her trees which she had picked. It was delicious.

A must stay for young families!

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home but with exceptional service. Mary's attention to detail and her friendly manner makes this a super place to stay. This is ideal for families with young children, with room to run whilst parents relax on the deck. The property is set in a tranquil and idealic valley not too far from Cairns. Highly recommended.

My stay at the Homestead BnB was an exceptional experience. The accommodation it's self was clean and comfortable, and a lovely place to come back to and relax after a long day. The Homestead BnB feel's like you are in the middle of no where, with the wonderful sounds and views of nature, but is perfectly located close to everything else Cairns has to offer. There are also great walking tracks along the creek for a nice afternoon stroll or jog.

The Family who run this Homestead were wonderful people and made my stay very enjoyable and easy. I had all the luxury, comfort and privacy I needed, and they also gave great advice on day trip destinations!

I would recommend this place to anyone who is staying in Cairns whether it be for a short or longer stay, you will love it!

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a couple of days in Cairns before we went up to Port Douglas and wanted a place to crash after a late night arrival and accommodate 3 adults and a child. What a lovely host Mary is. She made sure we were settled in and left toys and an activity book for our 5 year old. We weren't around much as we had lots of activities organised but when we were there it felt like we were staying with family friends. Comfy, clean B&B style accommodation with private wing of the house (including own toilet shower). Great breakfast too. You definitely need a car to stay here, but it's tranquil and not too far to drive to places.

Excellent hostess

  • 5 of 5

We chose this property because it had 5 stars and now we know why! Mary can't do enough for you, without being intrusive. It is very clean, great comfy bed, with terrific views of the rainforest across a sundrenched deck and green lawns. In just one day we saw a large goanna and a beautiful peacock, we rode along the scenic Freshwater creek bike/walk path.

We were made to feel part of the family, and the breakfast with freshly laid eggs was scrumptious!
