This is a great place to stay. It's in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of town but close enough. The apartment was a nice size, clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and accommodating too.
Would like stay here again . Love it so much
We (3 families - 6 adults and 6 children) spent a week at Poinciana Lodge in mid-December and had a lovely time. The home was able to accommodate all of us with ease and without ever feeling like we were on top of one another as there are numerous living spaces, both indoors and out. During our stay we found we rarely had to use the air-conditioning as the house has good cross-ventilation and lots of ceiling fans. We generally only turned the air-con on to cool the children's rooms down to get them off to sleep and then switched them off later in the evening. David, the host, was very helpful in greeting us on arrival and showing us through the property. There were beautiful floral arrangements, a welcome hamper plus a 'starter pack' of items in the fridge such as milk, butter, bread. As it was close to Christmas, there was even a gorgeous Christmas tree which was lovely for the children. The house is very handy to the airport but with location comes noise so expect to hear the first plane in the morning and the last plane at night but after our first night there they really didn't bother us. In face, we actually all enjoyed watching the planes and guessing which airline it was flying over. Poinciana Lodge is also in a really convenient location to access all areas of Cairns; an easy drive down to the city centre (David can give you the locals short cut), Kuranda Skyrail, northern beaches and local restaurants along Collins Avenue. The cafes and restaurants on Collins Avenue were a real surprise with our favourites being "Noa" for dinner (dined there twice) and cafe "Ten One Twenty" for breakfast and coffees. So if you want to really feel like you're staying in the tropics without leaving all the conveniences of city living, then Poinciana Lodge is where you need to be.
