'WOW! 'Where else but Queensland'...now I know where they get the saying from :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mornington. The house was so comfortable, everything needed for a great stay was provided, from washing detergent to pool toys for the kids! Tim and Wendy thought of everything! The pool and backyard space was amazing. It was quite a challenge to get the kids out of the pool to do other activities during our stay in Cairns. Kewarra Beach is such a lovely, clean and quiet suburb. Highly recommended to families who are after peace and quiet. Thank you Tim for the delicious Mangoes. You made us feel very welcomed. The only bad thing I can say about our stay...was going home :(''

The Queensland region
Cairns is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the world. Kewarra Beach is a residential area with a stunning uncrowded beach, part of which is a free range exercise area for dogs. It is a 10minute stroll along the beach to all the restaurants and shops of Palm Cove and a short drive south to Trinity Beach. The house is in a very quiet street.
Just up the road is the famous Paradise Palms golf course, childrens play area and mini golf.
Most tours will pick up from the house or it's not far to drive to any pick up points.
SkyRail is just a ten minute drive south near the large shopping centre at Smithfield.
Catch Skyrail to Kuranda on the Atherton Tablelands and sail above the magnificent rainforest. Take a dinner cruise on the Cairns estuary or spend a day out on one of the many fishing charter boats and catch fish to feed the family.
Dive or snorkel the Reef and be amazed at the quality of the coral and abundance of colourful fish.
Spend some time investigating Port Douglas and call in at the beautiful Thala Beach Resort just south of Port for lunch or coffee.
For the more adventurous there is hot air balooning, bungy jumping and sky diving, white water rafting and a host of other attractions.
DVD rental and take away meals are available at the local shopping centre just 1km away. The pizza/curry shop home delivers.
Kewarra Beach has a stinger net for safe swimming. Portable beach chairs and an esky are provided in case you wish to have a picnic on/near the beach or just a snack and sundowner beside the Coral Sea.

"Absolutely beautiful spacious house and wonderful garden with pool"
I loved this house, perfectly located for sightseeing and Tim and Wendy were a fantastic help with anything we needed to know and they really make sure that you enjoy your stay. Champagne and fresh flowers on arrival...what better way to start a holiday and even got us a discount off our trip to the reef! It was a gem to find this house, spotlessly clean and the pool was great as the temp was in the high 30's when we stayed there. I would recommend this lovely house to everyone who likes a home from home.
