Cairns Sharehouse really are a brilliant option if you're planning on staying in Cairns for longer than a short holiday.

The staff is very friendly, helpful and always available. Their houses are secure and cleaned regularly. Good place to stay. The prices are a bit high but for that price you get all you would want. Compared to other sharehouses in Cairns I think they are the best overall. Thank you CSH!

Thank you for your feedback and it was disappointing to hear your version of events.

If the prices, location and quality of accommodation don't sell it to you, the friendly, efficient staff should. I stayed in 2 of their properties for a total of nearly 3 months and the guys in the office did everything they could to ensure both stays were as comfortable as possible. The longer term nature of the tenancies means you...

“The rooms on the poolside closer to the back (i.e. not the front room on both levels) have no neighbours except for a dive company. It means no-one is looking in your window - it's a bit more private.”
