Pandanus is priced for 6 guests only - up to 4 more can be taken in the 2 studios ($70 per night per studio)

Whitfield and Edge Hill are the dress circle of Cairns. Pandanus Holiday House is a fine lowset timber Queenslander 1km from the cluster of cafes and restaurants surrounding the 5-ways village hub of Edge Hill.

Pandanus House has 3 bedrooms plus 2 attached self-contained studio bedrooms - Gardenia and Breadfruit. Gardenia Studio forms the back of the house and has its own entrance via the rear garden deck. It also has direct access to the main house. Breadfruit Studio does not have direct access to the house and is tucked off to the side of the main house. It has a separate fenced garden area and a small deck.

If you are concerned about privacy, you should book Pandanus and Gardenia at the same time ($70 each per night) which will give you 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms or book both studios with the house to give you 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms.

Whitfield & Edge Hill

The wide streets of Whitfield and Edge Hill skirting the Whitfield Range are flanked with many beautiful mature trees.  A very popular place to live because it is higher than the city and catches the cooling breezes from the south-east. 

Today, the trendy area around the Edge Hill fiveways, the Flecker Botanical Gardens and the Tanks Arts Centre ensures that the older timber houses are among the most sought after in Cairns. The walk along Woodward St to the village hub is 1km. There are several popular restaurants and cafes along Collins Avenue. Walk a little further (500m) and you come to the main entrance of the Botanical Gardens on the left. The boardwalk through the palm and pandanus swamp to Centenary lakes is on the right.

Flecker Botanical Gardens are a "must do" with the best public collection of tropical plants in Australia. There is a good cafe in the main garden and another further down Collins Avenue at the unusual mirrored building which is the visitor centre. 

Also on Collins Avenue is The Tanks Arts Centre. An exotic forged iron gate and wall of gargoyles beside a magnificent Fig tree lead into a beautiful garden with enormous tanks partially hidden by the profusion of tropical growth. They were fuel tanks built during World War 2 but are now a centre for the arts and live music in Cairns. Try to catch a concert here - I promise you it's a unique experience. They are walking distance from Pandanus House, just beyond the village hub of Edge Hill.

The City & Esplanade

As well as these nearby attractions, Whitfield is only 6km (less than 10 minutes) from the city. The esplanade boardwalk begins at the swimming lagoon and runs from Shields St to Aplin St. This is the heart of Cairns, attracting visitors and locals for the beautiful view across Trinity Bay, the swimming lagoon, the free BBQs and the many cafes and restaurants along the street between Shields and Aplin Streets.

It is not absolutely necessary to have a car. The house is on a busy bus route and taxi fares to the city are around $15. Local shopping is walking distance.

Pandanus Holiday House is a great value option for those wanting to be close to the city.
