About the Homestay
Hi, Myself and my Husband have been living in beautiful Cairns in the suburbs now for 5 years. We are friendly and hosted a beautiful Japanese student a few months ago and absolutely loved the experience. We would like to host more students and people from other countries who are looking for accommodation. Our home is situated at the top end of a quiet family friendly court with a lovely view. We have a large indoor living including kitchen and lounge as well as 2 large outdoor living areas. The homestay bedroom has a queen bed, side tables and wardrobe room. You would have your own bathroom so plenty of privacy. There is internet and wifi access also air conditioning. We also have a pool and spa that you can use. The public bus is a few minutes walk from us. I would pick you up from the airport as well as take you back for your home flight. My husband and I both speak English. We also have a little fluff ball named Lucy. She is not allowed within the house but she loves a pat.

- Use of Kitchen
Please keep your space tidy and if you use the kitchen just make sure you tidy up. Be respectful that my husband and I both work by keeping noise to a minimum after 9 pm at night. We prefer shoes not to be worn inside and showering is limited to no more than 7 minutes which is ample time to clean thoroughly. Water is precious. Also to make sure that the house is locked if you are going out while we are at work.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
