Surrounded by tropical gardens the home has 3 bedrooms (two for guests), a large deck that opens onto a swimming pool. Located in the quiet country town of Gordonvale which is just over 20 mins by car to Cairns, the gateway to the great Barrier Reef north and approx. 30 mins West to the Tableland where the Crater lakes, Cathedral fig trees and rainforest attract many visitors. 20 mins South there are sites such as 'Josephine Falls' and 'the Boulders'....and then further south Mission Beach.
Gordonvale is a small village with local bakery, Supermarket, butchers etc. The nearby Pyramid makes for an interesting climb with a great view for those who like trekking.
Buses run on the hour.
The 2 available rooms each have a Queen size bed.
I have many guests and enjoy experiencing people from other cultures, sharing meals and conversation.
The guests have access to the entire home (apart from other bedrooms) and pool.
It depends on the guests. Some are out a lot site-seeing, others get to meet my friends, go dancing etc.
Please let me know any special dietary (URL HIDDEN) free bread, soya milk etc.
No smoking! No drugs. You break it you pay for it.
I live in the small town of Gordonvale, 20-25 mins south of Cairns in Australia. The house is a Queenslander style surrounded by gardens and opens onto a large deck and pool. I am particularly am interested in Art and ceramics (especially those from Japan) and handmade papers. I love things of beauty, particularly nature, so of course I enjoy my garden. I also am into dancing and am involved with a local group of Salsa dancers.
As an art teacher I love to paint and draw and explore new things and meet new people. I often have overseas guests from other network sites as well (including Japanese students) particularly now my family has grown and left home.
