"A company you can really trust..."
Lizzie from Cairns Holiday homes was wonderful. We were due to take a holiday in July 2021 at Zanzoo retreat and then lock down happened and we had to cancel. Lizzie was amazing in helping us negotiate a full refund from AirBnB. We will definitely be booking again as soon as we can leave Sydney. A company you can completely trust to do the right thing. Service was fantastic, prompt and well beyond my expectations.
Zanzoo Estate is absolutely incredible, and I would recommend to everyone I know. From the moment you drive in you instantly feel on holidays. The facilities are brilliant and well maintained. The rooms are perfect, and the house has everything you need.
stayed at Zanzoo September 10th-16th 2022 VRBO ***** review
It is very rare that you write a review before you have the holiday, but it is very rare that you have the pleasure of dealing with people like Lizzie. Throughout the booking process that started in November until taking the holiday that will start in July, our process has been handled promptly, proffesionally and with grace. We have had to ask for things to be altered to meet our groups requirements, which was no trouble and then had them changed back, as our plans changed, also handled with promptness and a "no worries" attitude.
I have worked in customer service for over 40 years, and so often people who go above and beyond are not recognised for their contribution to a great experience.
I would like to recgonise Lizzie for making our holiday planning just as enjoyable as I hope our holiday will be.
thank you Lizzie

"The kids had a blast"
We enjoyed our stay at Zanzoo so much! Our group of 12 had plenty of space, both inside and out. The kids had a blast in the pool and on the tennis court and the adults loved the Nespresso machine and the roomy bedrooms. We loved the huge kitchen, having breakfast on the balcony upstairs, the abundance of bathrooms and the beautiful grounds (including deck overlooking the creek). The property is just a few kms from Crystal Cascades, shops and an adorable cafe / restaurant. Very easy to book and pay. We hope to visit again next time we’re in North Qld!
very helpful and friendly we would be happy to book through you again thankyou

Our party of 4 adults stayed at Bambusa for 6 nights. The home is simply lovely, nice decor & in a quiet location - with a view overlooking the lagoon towards the hills. There are no steps at the house, so it was perfect for my elderly father & would be excellent for families with young children. Trinity Beach is situated between Cairns & Pt Douglas - ideal 'home-base' for day trips/sightseeing. We ate several times at the local beachside cafes/restaurants - all good - book early though during busy times. Two highlights of our holiday were visiting the Hartley Crocodile Farm & riding the Kuranda Skyrail Cableway. It's impossible not to enjoy staying at Bambusa - score 10/10 from us
Stayed Aug 28th - Sep 3rd 2022
I rang and left a message. Very efficient in getting back to me. At the time, they were unable to find a place for me but they would try and look at other options. By the end of the day, we had a place and all our needs were accommodated which we were very appreciative of.
We will certainly use them again.
"thank you for the prompt replies and information"
I would like to thank you for the prompt replies and information that you have supplied me with and will be more than happy to recommend you and your business with anyone looking to book a holiday in Cairns in future.
"really appreciated Lizzie's quick responses ..."
We booked Zanzoo Retreat through Lizzie a couple months ago for next year. Unfortunately we had to cancel for personal reasons. However, we really appreciated Lizzie's quick responses and all her help with finding us a suitable place to begin with and then through the cancellation process.

"Fantastic family holiday house"
We holidayed as two families at Avalon for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’s an ideal place to have as a base while enjoying all the wonderful natural beauty in the region. The house has so many great options to keep the kids and adults entertained- swimming pool, pool table, table football - and beautiful views of the nearby rainforested hills from the front balcony. Plenty of room to spread out so everyone can have privacy too when needed! The house has everything you need to cater at home and is in good condition. We had a great stay here and would fully recommend.

"Great base to explore Cairns..."
Great base to explore Cairns with everything only 10/20 minutes away ( walk ), The house was clean and well laid out with everything you could want or need. Col is an amazing host who is always available if you need help or recommendation. He accomodated us when we requested to remove most decorations as we were travelling with a toddler. Our dogs enjoyed the backyard. And also excellent customer service from Lizzie!
"Huge and very modern."
Mahi mahi is a lovely holiday house! Huge and very modern! We absolutely loved our stay here with extended family and it was big enough no one was in anyone's way! Was great for kids too with everything fully fenced made for a stress free holiday! Will definitely be back!

"everything we needed to keep all 3 generations of our family occupied"
We had a very enjoyable stay and Georgina was very helpful (my daughter had locked her phone in the house on our leaving!). The house was great and our whole family had a great stay. The weather wasn't kind but on the days we didn't venture out the kids (young and old) enjoyed the tennis court and even the pool! We found there was everything we needed to keep all 3 generations of our family occupied. The only issue was one remote control in the downstairs bedroom not working but I let Georgina know when we left.

"The house is beautiful...The location is perfect"
17 of us stayed here for my mum's 80th Birthday ranging in age from 4 weeks to 80. The house is beautiful, the grounds just lovely, and any request or maintenance issue was handled promptly from friendly and helpful people. No request was too hard. They went out of their way to have everything perfect for our babies, toddlers and limpers. The location is just perfect, only a few minutes drive to Crystal cascades (3km) where we lay down in waterfall fed crystal clear pools for hours. The shopping centre was only a few minutes drive but really we wanted to just stay at Zanzoo and chill. Perfect for a group as there are so many different spots to get away from each other or hang together.

"fishing off the pontoon"
The house is beautifully decorated with an open plan. Great for relaxing by the pool or fishing off the pontoon. Plenty of bedrooms for family gatherings or a group of friends holiday.
Huge theatre room if you want to spend a relaxing afternoon watching movies. Absolutely recommend....it won't disappoint.
