One of the best Airbnb stays ever! Evelyn and Rod made us feel at home. Their lovely children, their great dog, and their friendly chickens all added to our experience there. They were very flexible and helpful, especially our last evening there when we were having transportation and dining challenges. Thanks Evelyn and Rod for a wonderful stay. Let us know if you ever travel to our part of the world.

This was our second time back at Evelyn & Rod's. Felt like coming home. Love the location. Less than 15-20 minutes of driving to sites in the area. Love hearing the curlews at night and seeing the wallabies in the field next door.

There is no air conditioning in the space which is the entire first floor (the host family lives on the second floor) Only one room has a small mobile AC which is making very loud noise.

Réponse de Evelyn & Rodney :
Thanks for your feedback. We accommodated Sharleens group of 10 people in our extra large Queenslander home on a particularly hot day. We keep the house as clean as possible and have until this review all 5 star cleaning reviews (thats over 50 feedbacks for 5 listings). And have been Super Hosts for 2 years. Its possible there may be one cockroach. Ill find him and get rid of it. At this stage we do not have aircon. We provide fans in each room and lounge room etc. We do intend to get it this year for guests but its a $9,000 investment. Our price of ($13/ person- eg $130 for 10 people group) and clearly stated in ad reflects the fact that we don't have aircon. We have windows. We have a well ventilated space. Its 10 degrees cooler downstairs than upstairs. We instead are a happy family friendly AirBNB that will do almost anything to assist you have a great holiday in Cairns.

Family friendly married couple, seeking to create memories by inviting guests into our home. We enjoy meeting people, learning new cultures and about different countries and traditions. Rods from Australia, Evelyn is from Papua New Guinea. We love Cairns tropical environment and happy to share our knowledge with guests.

We love AirBNB and have been inviting guests into our home for the past two years and have met so many wonderful people travelling this great country. We have had over 50 groups through and dozens of individuals and really know what you need and do our best to provided it eg tourist information, bus timetables, toiletries, beach towels, sunscreen, airport transfers, maps, books, bush walks, waterfalls, lookouts, family spots etc.

Rods been a tour guide with National Parks and Wildlife Service, is an Ecologist, international Community Development aid worker and teaches sustainability and knows the bush and its wildlife well.

He often takes guests spotlighting at night in search of wildlife (for a small $10/head fee). He is also a PADI diver and has dived the reef as well. Rod bought an old fishing boat that he is fixing up so if you like fishing I'm sure he will take you for a spin if you fill his fuel tank. Evelyn knows the shopping centers, cafes, restaurants, discount stores etc that Rod never goes too. Together we have cairns covered and happy to provide our local knowledge to guests.
