This place is "BEAUTIFUL"

Karen, this place is "BEAUTIFUL", it was exactly what I anticipated to fit all of my "BEAUTIFUL" family 17+3 had stayed elsewhere. All up tho 20 of us spent 4 days & nights just chilling, swimming, and so much more.... Thank you very much.

fantastic outside living space...spectacular host

what a knock out place for our group of 8 filmakers to stay. Great bedrooms and bathrooms...and an awesome outdoor shower house too. But it was the fantastic outside living space and fabbo pool that really won our hearts. Throw in secure on property parking, huge yard and fabulous garden with the most spectacular host and well there you have awesome AIRBNB stay in Cairns. Thank you Karen. We couldn't love you more!

Second time we stayed here, love it!

What a perfect place for large groups. this is our second time staying here. This time we had three families stay here with 6 children. We were up in cairns for the BMX state championship and staying at the house for 5 nights was ideaL. Very spacious and comfortable and all the little details make it extra special. Perfect for entertaining and a very secure property. We all loved swimming and relaxing after the racing and even had friends to join us. Great to have the indoor kitchen and undercover area so even when it rains you can still be outside having a bbq. Karen who lives upstairs on the property is just wonderful and made our stay perfect. We were able to have a great time without worrying about neighbours like you would in a unit. Such fantastic value for money and if we are in Cairns again we would definatley stay there. It is like home away from home but even better! Thank you so much Karen.

Great house for a large group!

The house was perfect for our group of 17, plenty of space and the outdoor area was excellent! The kids had a ball and Karen (the caretaker) was very friendly but discreet. Thanks so much!

excellent all round

We travelled as two families - one from the UK and one from Adelaide and we met in Cairns. We had a really great stay in Harvester. The accommodation was spacious, clean and very well kitted out. Karen was attentive and helpful but very discrete. All in all a lovely place to stay.

Fantastic accommodation for the entire family and more!

We had 3 families stay at The Harvester Home as the men were participating in the Ironman Cairns. It was wonderful, the space was big enough for the kids to play and for us to put all our gear and equipment. Woolsworth is just a stone's throw away and getting to the city was very convenient. Highly recommended for big families or large group of friends. Pity that the weather wasn't in our favour or we would have loved to try out the pool and BBQ!

The Harvester Home, 44 Moody St, Manoora

7 bedrooms, sleeps 15 (no bunks)

Do you have a large family and are struggling to find a home with the space for everyone to be together under one roof?

Look no further - Harvester is huge.

4 bedrooms on the ground floor in the main house and 3 bedrooms in the attached unit.

The property comes with a bit of history too because it was the hub of the farm before it became a suburb. The main house was the farmhouse when this area was still canefields and the unit originally was the cane harvester garage until the present owners converted it to a ground floor unit for a family member with a disability.

The unit has 3 bedrooms for 7 people, a TV room and a bathroom designed for wheelchair use.

The main house has 4 bedrooms for 8 people, is tiled throughout, has comfy seating and a large screen TV, an office nook, a brand new bathroom and a well equipped kitchen.

Between the house and the annex is a huge covered area with lots of chairs and tables. This is the heart of the home with room for everyone to get together and enjoy their holiday as a group. Free broadband wifi will keep everyone connected to the rest of the world too.

The covered area also has a kitchen bench and sink with a BBQ , gas burners and an electric oven. The view is towards the beautiful green mountain backdrop of Cairns. With a large swimming pool surrounded by nearly an acre of garden and a wonderful old cubby house, there is plenty to keep the kids excited.

There are overhead fans throughout and all bedrooms and indoor living areas are air-conditioned and  security screened.

Welcome to your own private holiday resort.

The owner Karen lives on site and has an old friendly dog which she keeps in her section of the property. Karen is very  discreet and respects your privacy. If you need help or advice about things to do, you have your own onsite concierge.
