Escape & getaway is The Homestead.

Family owned and managed:

Featuring 2 Bedrooms among World Heritage listed rainforest and mountain tops with quick access to the whole of Far North Queensland.

The Homestead is a comfortable space, on a 2-acre property, sitting amongst the open greenery of the tropical rainforest at your doorstep. It is just a few short minutes drive to the main terminal to access The Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest, Kuranda Skyrail. The world famous Paronella Park and the Cape Tribulation are also only a few short kilometers away, not mention all the beautiful Islands you can visit.

The fully self-contained accommodation at The Homestead features panoramic views of the escarpment and gorgeous visiting Ulysses butterflies. Situated on a large and open block with undisturbed and dry heath flora, the peaceful tranquil setting of The Homestead is perfect for a relaxing couple’s hideaway; alternatively, its spacious open area provides an affordable holiday for those with pets or even more so, families have the opportunity explore and play outdoors.

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 have bikes for you on 15km path built in the past year exploring 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, grab an ice cream or go for a swim.

At The Homestead you will have access to an entire end of the house which includes up to two bedrooms with built in a wardrobe, full ensuite, private balcony access with mountain views, your own TV with Netflix and Spotify. The kitchen is shared, there is also a bbq available outdoors on the balcony - again with mountain views. The backyard is shared, though it is 2 acres so it is truly big enough for all of us.

We like to adjust ourselves to you and the experience you would like to have. We are would love to meet you at The Retreat, give you the keys, show you the property and make sure your stay is just as you had expected or otherwise we can leave the keys for you at the property.

We have 20 years of experience living here in Cairns and are more the willing to tell you the best places to have brunch either in the city or by the beach, which trips to the reef are the most fun and other tours you might not know of or how to find local waterfalls without having drive more than 10 minutes and much more! While you stay with us in Cairns we want you to feel like a local and experience Cairns in a way that only few of us truly know how.
