A timber "Queenslander" house with a family friendly layout and tons of space. Conveniently close to the city -  7 minutes by car to the swimming Lagoon on the Esplanade.

The main bus route into the city is 150m from the house and a taxi is less than $15 to the city centre (Uber is less).  

Walking distance from the house - Thai Coins restaurant, Cazalys Football Club (bar & bistro), Balaclava Hotel, Dan Murphy's bottle shop, Stockland shopping Centre, Cafe Brazil.

Cairns Esplanade & Lagoon

From first light until late in the evening, The Esplanade is the lively heart of the city. It's where the locals like to relax and meet their friends, to people-watch, to dine, to swim in the lagoon or just stroll around and enjoy the sunset.

Walk the esplanade at dawn or dusk from the lagoon to the northern end and back again. It takes about an hour to cover the 5km at a brisk pace. Most peaceful time is early with the sun coming up over Cape Grafton. Join the healthy early-risers at yoga exercise or the bird-watchers with their scopes seeking the Siberian visitors on the mudflats.

Evening time is much busier. Across from the boardwalk, the street is lined with restaurants and cafes. Lights are twinkling along the long curve of Trinity Bay from the Lagoon to the Marlin Marina. Multi-coloured Lorikeets are noisily settling in the trees along the boardwalk and the flying foxes in their thousands are silhouetted against the dying light as they set off for their nightly forage. Just like the locals - gathering at their favourite dining places for the evening.

Convenience, space & privacy

Wilks House is one of the very few homes available for rent within 3km of the city. You have a huge choice of restaurants and entertainment just a $15 taxi ride from your home.

It's a great house for a family with children or dogs. The kids have their own rumpus room and a large, fully-fenced garden to play in.

If you are a visiting from a yacht you will not find another house closer to the marina or port area.

If you are re-locating or renovating and looking for a fully furnished short term rental home, why not spoil yourself and make a stressful time easier?
