    Without doubt the best decision I made was to select Paula and David as my Homestay host in Cairns
    Although it was only a one night stay, I found the experience very enjoyable, as they could not do enough to make my stay one to remember
    Located around 12 klm's from city central, the house is both modern and extremely clean with all facilities
    I would not hesitate to stay again should I visit Cairns in the future, although I sense that the booking will need to be made well in advance

    Both our hosts and me were first time with Homestay. I cannot praise Paula and David enough. They are friendly, kind and very hospitable.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
