Our recently purchased 2-2-2 Apartment was easily in the best Apartment complex in Cairns we saw. If you see a better one tell us! With more swimming pools than days of the week, a full gym and well-looked after gardens it's also just minutes to town
The landscaping and pool area are as good as many, even most 4 and even 5 star hotels that I have been to. We still haven't been in every one of the pools. Doesnt matter how busy it is I can almost guarantee you you wont have to share a pool with anyone else. No kid soup!! Also has a tennis court, gym and shop downstairs.
Our apartment itself is spacious enough, comfortable and cool. It could do with some art on the walls I think... Working on that. There is a reasonable sized balcony with outdoor furniture and place to hang out clothes, a sofa area inside that can seat 5, a dining table that I never use (but you're of course welcome to), a laundry room to wash clothes and of course your room and own bathroom.
Disponible para huéspedes
We have left the (technically) Master bedroom free although both rooms are pretty much the same size. It has its own ensuite with double vanity, a big queen bed with a TV also in the room. The house also has a large living area with sofa, entertainment system and flatscreen etc and a 15sqm balcony that is often home to afternoon drinks.
Please don't feel like you have to hide in your room while you're here, there is ample room to hang out regardless of if I'm in the house or not.
Unlimited ADSL2+ internet and landline that has free calls to anywhere in Australia and a couple of overseas countries. There is a washing machine and place to hang out clothes.

Xin and I both work so most days the house will often be yours until evening. I work at a travel agency and regularly book tours for my customers and am happy to give any suggestions and/or help you to book them... thats my job, its very easy to organise. Don't really go and party that much but same deal; am happy to give suggestions. I have a car and if i am going the same way as you or leaving at the same time am happy to give you a ride.
You will have your own room and chill out space while at the apartment but guests (you!) are more than free to hang out throughout the house, stream a movie onto the living room TV, listen to music and of course lounge by the pools.
**Please note.** I am recently getting many guests arriving into Cairns on the 0400am Cathay and jetstar flights and/or the Greyhound buses that are also arriving in at ungodly hours and/or departing at midnight. If you would like to arrive at that time I have no problem accommodating you likewise if you want to come back on the day you leave and hang out until your bus leaves that's no problem. I do however only have the one room so please let me know in advance and I'll block out the night before or the night after. The cost for this is $40AUD, which, to be honest, I think is absolutely worth it. Thank you

To people that are new at using airbnb please note this is a "private room" listing. That means you are staying in the second room in my apartment, sharing the apartment with the owner, me.
Our apartment is in a suburban street but is beside a walking path that sometimes has idiots walk past late at night that can make some noise. It doesnt wake my wife up but sometimes if I forget to close the window I occasionally hear them. They are not common but just giving you a heads up.
Cairns is a fairly relaxed and the idea of having "house rules" doesn't really appeal to me but if you could help out with a few things.
* I can't believe i have to say this but guys, wear a shirt and shorts! I have walked out to see guys on numerous occasions not wearing a shirt or in a pair of underpants at the kitchen bar... please, i'm not really setting the bar very high when that's a condition. Please, any clothing will do, a poncho, a superman outfit, whatever you want.
* Almost everyone is quite good at cleaning up after themselves in the kitchen, washing up etc. and thank you! You're awesome. .... but can i ask if you cook (especially fry something) then please wipe down the bench afterwards of any oil or crumbs you leave. I have heaps of cloths and sprays in the kitchen for just that purpose.
* Please don't keep food, especially opened food in your room. I'm paranoid about ants... I'll make sure you have plenty of space in the kitchen.
* Check in/ out. Guys I have written that check in time is 4pm because that is the time I normally get home from work, and that is the time your room will be ready and you can check in. You can always ask, but please do not assume I will be able to get home whenever your flight gets in, and i apologise for the inconvenience this may cause but I have stated this clearly here. If your flight is coming in slightly earlier in the afternoon I can try to arrange something but do not assume your flight landing at 1000am means you can come straight here. Same with people dropping off cars... you can always ask and maybe we can arrange something but please don't assume because you have to drop off your campervan at 0900am that I will be here to collect your luggage at 0900am. I am not a complete a****** we can talk about whatever your situation is and try to figure something out, I'm just saying don't hit me up (and this happens enough times to warrant putting it here) 24 hours before and act like its my fault your room isnt ready at 0900am.

G'day... I'm Kristen and I live in the complex with my partner Xin (pronounced Shin). I moved to Cairns about 5 years ago, and I work with a lot of the Chinese tourists that come to see the Great Barrier Reef. Before that I lived in Shanghai, China for about 10 years. I'm pretty easy going and consider myself pretty typically Australian. I really enjoy life in Cairns and am happy to show you around and give any advice while you're here. My partner Xin, is a simultaneous interpreter and works out of town a lot so you may not see her while you're here but if she is here then better luck to you! Looking forward to meeting you!
