You will have your own private gate and entrance through the potted garden, and courtyard where the bbq and pizza oven are.
The laundry is also accessed in this area.
Your lower floor contains the entrance hall and wine cellar, next to which is The French Room. A comfortable queen size room with french style provincial furniture in it. Airconditioned, but mostly cool anyway because it sits on the rock of the hillside.
Six stairs take you up to the main living area where you will find the lounge, dining room and kitchen. The main verandas are on this level on two sides.
Continue up the stairs to the mezzanine office/library, and you will find the bedroom with the single beds on your left complete with two small work or play desks so the children can use the colouring books and pencils. There are also some building blocks and a toy box.
The other door takes you to the master bedroom with ensuite and spa bath. You have a toilet on this level as well as a private veranda.
Plenty of hanging space for your clothes as well as drawers.
You can see the sea from the bed usually depending on whether the giant tree fern has a new frond or not.
The bed is extremely comfortable.

Your aparment occupies the top three floors of the block
Parking is only a few steps away from the gate, on our quiet track.
There are security lights and a camera.
Gekkoes and Skinks often do insect patrols around the lights at night.
You will hear them chirping to each other.
Don't worry they won't hurt you, and they help by eating any cheeky mosquitoes for you. We don't have poisonous frogs in this country either, in fact the green frogs don't seem to mind children who are gentle, and it is not uncommon to see a child with a frog sitting on his shoulder.
There is a hammock to go on the front veranda, so you can dream the day away when you're tired of sightseeing.
If you don't see it, just ask me where it is. We ask that care is taken with any children though, a broken wing is a bummer for the holidays.
The steps down to the pool are down from the potted garden through the rainforest courtyard, (where there is a bench seat, a good place for meditating), The pool gate is there , please keep it closed, and skip down the steps to the pool. There are usually a few pool toys there, noodles,etc.
Don't let the children race down the steps as the steps may be slippery if it has been raining.

You probably won't even see Eileen and Gordon, unless you need help with any local knowledge or problem solving.
We'll probably be playing on the river, fishing or sailing, but you will always be able to reach us by phone.
We are sociable and love to meet new people so don't hesitate to seek us out if you get lonely.

Flying Fish Point is a very popular and pleasant place to visit.
There are some good walks from just strolls along the beaches to the more energetic one all the way to the Ella Bay National Park.
The track to Ella Bay National Park is popular with mountain bike riders, but not too strenuous.
You could have a stroll from Flying Fish Point along to The Coconuts Beach, which is good for a morning exercise.
The estuary of the Johnston River can be clearly seen from The Coconuts, with some interesting boat traffic.
Further out in the shipping channel, you could perhaps spot The Pacific Dawn or some other passenger cruise boat.
Especially pretty at night from the veranda, when they go past lit up like Christmas trees.
You will also see the freighters sometimes waiting for the correct tide to get into Mourylin Harbour to load up with sugar .

A car is probably necessary to get you around to see all the local attractions, although there is a bus route to town, with a stop not far from the house.
If you're flying in and don't want to hire a car, then ask us about providing transport for you.

Flying Fish Point has a cafe/restaurant that is popular with the local.
They do excellent, breakfasts, and dinners.
Fish and chips , coffee and snacks,

Eileen is a very nice and helpful hostess. Her home is very charming, we stayed only one night, arrived late and left early. She gave lots of tips about what not to miss out on, on our trip south.

Fabulous house!! My favorite Airbnb so far. Plus, Eileen and Gordon are super cool! Plenty of room with great sea views. Nice pool. Very good cafe down by the beach (2 blocks). If you are in the Cairns area it is definitely worth the drive.
