Bed and Breakfast Accommodations for Your Stay in Cairns

Being one of the most beautiful tropical destinations in the world, Cairns is peppered with countless bed and breakfast accommodations, each with something different to offer to guests. Their common denominator, though, is the laidback, relaxed ambience and surroundings that are filled with evergreens, typical of a holiday in a coastal paradise. These B & B accommodations are also ideal for honeymooners, as the guest houses are usually designed to elicit a romantic vibe, matched with spectacular views of the Cairns horizon from the balconies.

Some of the things to consider when choosing an accommodation are your travel budget, needs, number of guests staying with, and the hotel’s location. Your choice must fit all these considerations before you move on to other things like tours and car rental services. Many accommodations offer guided tours at additional costs; it’s your decision if you’ll take up on their offer or just explore Cairns on your own using a rental vehicle.

Whatever your needs and travel itineraries are, there’s a bed and breakfast accommodation that will keep you comfortable during your stay. Check out some of these B & B places in Cairns:


Kooka’s Bed & Breakfast

Touted by its owners as a tropical haven, Kooka’s lives up to its promise with its beautiful Swiss-style chalet tucked away in the foothills of Mt. Whitfield, where guests can feast their eyes on spectacular panoramic views of the lush forest and the mountains running across the skyline. The chalet is just a mere 10 minutes away from the heart of Cairns, but it’s still far enough to block off the noise from the busy district. With the musical chirping of the native birds overhead and the gentle sound of other local animals everywhere, you will certainly be transported to a different world, one that’s in the midst of a seeming jungle, but equipped with modern conveniences.

While in Kooka’s, you can also pay a visit to the famous Flecker Botanical Gardens, just a 20-minute walk from the accommodation, or you can just stay in and relax by the guest pool. Better yet, enjoy a nice tropical breakfast on the balcony as the cool mountain breeze keeps you company.

Jungara Cairns Bed & Breakfast

If you could build your own holiday house out in the woods, this could be it. It’s your typical white house in the forest, minus the luxury of most holiday accommodations. A wide, tree-lined pathway lit by lamps open to an expansive, manicured landscape, where far off in the centre stands the charming Jungara house, tucked away at the foot of the mountains against a backdrop of sprawling verdant rainforest.

Inside this lovely holiday accommodation, you’ll find three large bedrooms with polished timber floors and pieces of furniture that reflect modern sophistication without being intimidating. The interiors are cosy, giving off a light and friendly vibe that makes guests feel right at home in the middle of the rainforest. At the front of the house is a spacious porch with outdoor dining amenities where you can enjoy the daily tropical breakfast served; it also makes for having a good Aussie BBQ meal with the family, as the house also has facilities for grilling your own recipes outside or inside in the fully equipped kitchen. Afterwards, you can enjoy a dip in the resort-style pool with spa jets and waterfall, while taking in the stunning views of the surrounding mountains and rainforest.

If you decide to explore the city, you don’t have to worry about traveling far because Jungara is only a few kilometres away from the centre of Cairns. As such, you can freely discover the best attractions in the city while coming home to a serene retreat in the forest.
