Reviewed 12 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We had a great time in Charlie's place. It is in a pleasant area within walking distance of the Botanic Gardens. Although Charlie was away and we did not meet him, we had great communication with him before our stay. He arranged for his housekeeper, Bernadette, to pick us up from the airport, which was so kind and helpful to us. On arrival we found the fridge full of juices, milk, bread, butter, fresh fruit as well as coffee, tea, cornflakes and preserves, everything one may need to make a nice breakfast. Edge Hill has several restaurants as well as convenience stores. We also had free use of the bikes and helmets, which we used to visit Cairns centre. Edge Hill is a good base for visiting the Daintree Rainforest as well as the Barrier Reef. Charlie's place is nice and spacious with a large well equipped kitchen and bathroom and the bonus of having air-conditioning, there is also a washing machine. We would happily stay here again and would recommend it.

Management response:

Thank you for the kind review - Yes we do try hard to provide everything a traveller may need for a comfortable stay including Free pick up and drop off to the Airport, I am Glad you enjoyed the area which is very much a locals area with some of the Best Restaurants in Cairns and still only 10 minutes...

About the neighbourhood
Edge Hill is the Locals Village - nestled on the side of Mt Whitfield (10 min from CBD) to catch the evening breezes - it was first settled part of Cairns due to access to Freshwater Lake which now forms part of the Close by Botanic Gardens - Now Populated with 7 very popular locals cafes and 5 restaurants including 2015 Restaurant of the Year - Linga Longa - the Shopping area litterally on the corner from your BnB includes everything from Fashion, Shoes, Butcher, Baker, liquor store to dentist, yoga and massage. Walking Tracks on Mt Whitfield are very popular as is a Visit to the Tanks - Arts & Music Centre and Olympic Pool complex - all within walking distance from your BnB
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Cairns Int (opp Mt Whitfield): 4.0 km
Railway: Cairns Railway Station : 5.0 km
Ferry: Cairns Reef Fleet Terminal : 6.0 km
The Nicest thing that most Guests appreciate (as I would) is we are more than Happy to Pick Guests up and Drop them off at the airport as it only takes 10 minutes at the most (reasonable times apply) and we also Run Guests to the start of their Tours should they book them with us - as this saves Hiring a Car and in some cases paying parking all day as well (as Most Tours start within 10 minutes drive of your BnB - so its no biggie ;-))

Nearest Beach: 8.0 km.
