Zanzoo Retreat Accommodation

About the property

Located at the entrance of Redlynch Valley on the way to Crystal Cascades - surrounded by rain forest, rocks and swimming holes following Freshwater Creek.

This is a large two storey house with 6 air-conditioned bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, a very well equipped kitchen, upstairs and downstairs living areas and several wide verandahs and covered patios.

The house is set well back from the road and screened by a long line of old Mango trees. Owned by a local family. A fenced off area and barn not far from the house and one other permanently tenanted house is the only area which is classed as "out of bounds" on the 13 acres of wide open spaces and lush gardens.

Zanzoo Retreat is perfectly equipped to accommodate large families or groups of holiday makers. We have a full sized tennis court - also included are a few tennis rackets, please bring your own tennis balls. Our resort style pool facilities complete with covered sitting area with table, chairs and BBQ will bring great enjoyment to any holiday maker.

We will greet you with the keys and show you where everything is, a welcome pack - fruit, milk, biscuits will also be provided upon arrival. Groceries can be ordered online from Woolworths Redlynch and we can see that cold items get packed away. This needs to be pre-arranged with us.

Zanzoo Retreat is well equipped for small children providing porta cot with waterproof mattress protector, high chair, and pram. As our property is 2 storey safety gates are also available for our younger visitors.

A classic North Queensland timber home on a private 13 acres

This is a truly brilliant home for a large group or family. It is near the end of the beautiful Freshwater valley, close to Crystal Cascades, but still only 15 minutes from the airport or the centre of Cairns city where you can settle in to be part of this wonderful location. All the many attractions and activities Cairns has to offer are really close at hand. 20 mins to the Northern Beaches, 45 mins to Atherton Tablelands.

It is a large private property with a beautiful fresh water creek for the kids to explore, a paddock to play football or cricket in, a tennis court and a pool. The house is huge with lots of quiet spaces as well as large living areas for the whole family. If you are more than 12 people, there are 3 single bed sleep outs upstairs and another single in one of the downstairs rooms.

It is recommended that guests have their own vehicle. Hiring of transport is very economical and straight forward. There is plenty of room to park several cars. Public bus transport is also available, but you do have to walk to the bus stop..

You won't find better value than this house for a large group.

Locally owned, we can provide you with the secrets of our Far North Queensland wonderland. Be kept busy with attractions close to Zanzoo these are some of the best in the country. Explore Crystal Cascades, walk from here to Copperload dam, play at 'The Rocks' pools, close to a championship course for downhill mountain bike racing, horse riding in the valley and may more things to do.

Visit the Great Barrier Reef, Hartley's Creek Crocodile Farm, Cairns Northern Beaches, with only a short drive to Mossman Gouge swimming hole, take a trip to Cape Tribulation and Daintree the home of some of Australia's most protected species of reptiles.


Relax revive and enjoy the tranquil surroundings that our most private and secluded property has to offer.
