About the property


This is a clean, quiet and comfortable home with spacious rooms and a large verandah which overlooks a beautiful rainforest garden. With towering shady trees it is perfect for nature lovers and guests who would like to experience the rainforest and still be within easy reach of Cairns city and surrounding attractions.

The popular deck has a hammock and couch for you to relax on and enjoy the birds and butterflies. Kick back and read a book or enjoy dinner by candlelight.

It is located in one of the older, established areas of Cairns on the southside of town 10-15 mins drive from the CBD and marina. Only an hours drive from the scenic Atherton tablelands or 25 mins to the northern beaches. CapeTribulation is also accessible as a day trip. Off road parking is also available and there is also a public bus stop close by.

The house has 2 spacious bedrooms, an open plan lounge, large kitchen, toilet, laundry and separate large bathroom. The bedrooms have arched doorways and are separated from the main area by thick curtains. Fans are located throughout the house and there is aircon available in the main bedroom and lounge if needed.

A large fully equipped kitchen with gas top, electric oven, microwave and dishwasher completes the house.

Free wifi is available and towels and linen are provided.

Reiki treatments and meditation sessions are also available on request.

Transfers to and from the airport can also be arranged for a small fee.

I used to work tourism for 16 years so am happy to advise you on reef and rainforest trips and also offer personalized tours to guests.

Babies are welcome and there is a travelling cot and baby bath available. With toddlers and young children please look at the photos of the verandah and see whether its suitable for your child.

Please contact me for bookings and further information. Kind regards, Julie

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Julie's Rainforest Paradise was absolutely perfect! A wonderful get away on the outskirts of town although it felt as if we were miles away in a rainforest. The lush tropical landscape and huge yard offered up privacy, beautiful tropical plants and a variety of wildlife which we loved. Curlews, Kookaburra's, Bush turkeys and Cockatoos just to name a few. The house is clean, comfortable and spacious with all the comforts of home. You'll want for nothing as the house is well equipped with just about anything you will need.

Julie is a delightful host who made sure we were well cared for and available for anything if need be. I look forward to my next visit to Cairns and will be sure to stay at Rainforest Paradise once again.

Relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

We chose rainforest retreat to spend a couple of days relaxing during our long trip to Australia and then to visit the Barrier Reef and rainforest. The property did not disappoint with it's unique calming ambiance and the most comfortable beds. We had everything needed for recharging the batteries and enjoying the highlights of the area.

We really enjoyed our stay. Julie went out of her way to make us feel very welcome. It was a pleasure living in her home which had a very unique ambience to it. The surrounding rainforest was lovely.

Excellent holiday house close to CBD

  • 5 of 5

Nice and comfortable house in a quite neighborhood and close to everything Cairns has on offer. We really enjoyed relaxing style and design. The house is on the hill and surrounded by beautiful rainforest garden which keeps it cool and private.

The kitchen is comfortable and had everything we needed for cooking our own meals. Highly recommended! Thank you!
