Booking with Cairns Holiday Homes - you don't pay a booking fee and you can email or phone us if you need help or advice in choosing your holiday home.
A couple of things to remember - our homes are part of the local community. Please treat our homes with respect and please be mindful of your neighbours regarding noise, particularly at night.
Booking a long way ahead and then cancelling. Reserving a home means it is no longer available. Cancellations close to arrival time are very hard to refill because most families book well ahead. A cancellation will not be fully refunded.
Getting your best value - pick a home with a size that best matches your numbers. Use the search filters in the search box above to narrow down the choices. Providing your dates will list only those homes that are available.
Your holiday budget - to help you plan, we have provided a guide that shows the cost per guest for every home when full.
If you are having difficulty or have a question, please call us (07-40452143)
We will do everything we can to help you find the best home for your stay in Cairns,

We had a lovely 8-day stay in this house. We enjoyed the very quiet neighbourhood, immersed in the local flora and fauna, yet very close to all the convenience of the nearby Earlville shopping mall for our everyday groceries, and only 15 minutes to Cairns waterfront. The house layout is perfect with a very nice, well-equipped kitchen open on the large terrace, perfect for great family dinners and collective cooking sessions. The living room is very cosy with a nice TV and board games for kids. The master bedroom with walk-in dressing and huge bathroom is also very comfortable with its large windows overlooking the rainforest. We loved the design of the house and its location and would definitely go back there on a next trip to Cairns.

"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.

We just spent a week at “A Touch of Bali” and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Great base to explore Cairns with everything only 10 minutes away. The house was luxurious and well laid out with everything you could want or need. The outdoor shower was paradise, as were the beautiful tropical gardens, fabulous outdoor areas and inground pool. Jenny & Ron are great hosts and very helpful.
"a top notch booking for Cairns. The location is also fantastic..."
“This is a fantastic Airbnb rental home for any large group staying in Cairns. The property has great accommodations and I couldn't have been happier to choose it for my groups 5 night stay. David provides a great tour to get you familiar with the home and the rules for the property and makes the whole experience very welcoming. The views, the quiet property, and all the extra amenities of this property make it a top notch booking for Cairns. The location is also fantastic as it's just far enough away from the city to be quiet but close enough that you can get there by a 5min cab ride or 30min walk. Would definitely recommend to any groups staying in the area and will definitely book again for another vacation.”

Great spacious property
"The booking was seamless and the host was so helpful. The house is lovely, very clean and plenty of rooms/bathrooms.
We had an issue with the fire alarms going off late one night but it was not the fault of the host (or anyone) just an issue that needed fixing.
Thanks again to 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!

"fantastic outside living space...spectacular host"
"what a knock out place for our group of 8 filmakers to stay. Great bedrooms and bathrooms...and an awesome outdoor shower house too. But it was the fantastic outside living space and fabbo pool that really won our hearts.
Throw in secure on property parking, huge yard and fabulous garden with the most spectacular host and well there you have it...an awesome AIRBNB stay in Cairns. Thank you Karen. We couldn't love you more!"

"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."

"Arrived to this breathtaking villa overlooking the bay."
"Arrived to this breathtaking villa overlooking the bay. House was stocked with all the essentials and plenty of non essentials too. Couldn't find one fault well worth a stay here highly recommended. Loads of space for large families. We didn't get out and about enough to see cairns as most were happy to stay by the pool.

"stocked with everything we need"
"The accommodation was excellent in all ways. Being close to the city, 10 mins by car and an easy drive was a plus.
The house is very well presented and has everything most people would require in a rental. Tea, coffee, condiments, fruit in the bowl and fresh milk on arrival plus a little gift snack on the table. The cupboards and drawers are stacked with ALL those extras needed when cooking and even when packing your picnic lunch for a day’s outing.
Comment from our group, "we have never seen a rental so stocked with everything we need". Breakfasts were a joy in the morning light on the covered outdoor patio overlooking the back garden and evening meals were also eaten here.
Lizzie our host greeted us with a friendly smile, explained the house and was only a phone call away if needed, thank you Lizzie. If you want a comfortable, well presented house when visiting Cairns look no further."
