“A tranquil, well appointed B & B with a beautiful aspect and friendly, helpful hosts.”
Reviewed 26 January 2011

We enjoyed a lovely week at Jungara. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The beautiful gardens were set in a spectactular environment. The wildlife was interesting and Jack and Jessie, the resident dogs, were very lovable. As long as you have a vehicle, Jungara is an ideal base to explore Cairns and the many other nearby places of interest. Kim & Marilyn are careful not to infringe upon their guests' privacy but are very willing to offer advice and information if asked. Awesome value for money.

This B&B is located at the western fringe of Cairns, at the base of the foothills. The property is gorgeous, well maintained and beautifully landscaped. The drive to downtown Cairns (ten minutes) is very manageable, and the property is convenient to the beaches and other attractions to the north.

The B&B consists of three studio units in a row, connected by a common porch, with a kitchen unit at one end. The entry to each unit is a sliding glass door across the front of the unit. The first drawback is that the drapes over these doors are quite sheer, and the units face east, so it is bright enough to read in the bed (facing east) by 6:15 a.m. The building is separate from the owner's house. The owners are very pleasant and helpful, but you don't get that "warm and fuzzy" feeling from the owners that you would probably get if the rooms were inside their home.

The rooms are clean, with beautiful hardwood floors, but there are a few negatives. The mattress was far too soft for our liking. The rooms have a tiny television with a laptop-sized screen, poor speakers, few channels and no DVD player. Wireless internet is available, but the signal won't reach the rooms and you have to sit outside to get an internet connection. There is no book in the room with instructions, local attractions, etc., which we have come to expect from most B&Bs. Breakfast was only fruit, bread and small boxes of cereal, placed in the refrigerator of the kitchen by the owner at 7:30 a.m.

Despite these drawbacks, we still give this B&B a rating of four, because the pros of the property greatly outweigh the cons. We sincerely hope that these minor drawbacks are corrected by the owners. In any event, we recommend the property and would stay there again.

jungara, Owner at Jungara Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, 8 December 2010
Thank you for your review and kind words, we have taken the few things that need improvement on board and are very much appreciated.

The rooms are due for refurnishment early next year,with replacement of drapes,and mounting of a larger TV/DVD on the wall,with beds being replaced where necessary.

At Jungara we respect our guests privacy by giving them their total space and time, while we are very close by for any response they may have.

Because of the many tours and attractions in the north ,we have a large brochure board in the guest kitchen with many tours to select from where we are very happy to advise and arrange bookings

Our breakfast is made up of freshly cut fruits,juice,cerals,breads grounded coffee and tea,available from 7.30am on unless required earlier.

Thank you for your rating and improvement suggestion,we can only get better from here to improve our guest comforts and hopefully a return visit by yourselves.

Yours Sincerly
Kim and Marilyn

We stayed there and had a very good time. Kim was very helpful with planning our tours and looking for B&Bs in other cities. The rooms are very quiet, private because they are in a separate house. The garden is very beautiful. Wish to come back. Barbara and Arnold

Great place to stay, we loved the pool (it has jets), it's out of the way but close to town and the only noise is the rain forest birds (which I really liked buy my spouse thought were too loud so we just closed the window at night). Rent a car is the best way to get to this accommodation but another guest we made friends with used the bus to get to downtown Cairns with no issue.

The thing I liked the best that describes the whole atmosphere is when I went deep sea fishing and came back with a big fish our host (Kim) took it to his friend at a fish shop in town and got it filleted up for me for no charge. I really felt that was going the extra mile.

Would definitely stay there again!

Marilyn and Kim are really impressive hosts. Within the whole house, guestrooms and garden (or should I say park) you feel the love and dedication they put in.
The rooms are very proper and spacious and you can use the whole lot including the beautiful pool.
Especially our kids loved this place very much because they could play with the dogs, playing in the garden and raving in the pool.
Marilyn and Kim: we will keep you in mind and be sure that we will recommend your beautiful B&B.
