This is the place where great memories are made.
This is AquaMondo - inspired by fond memories. Absolute beach front Cairns.
How many affordable beach house's in Australia have direct access to beach. When I say direct - i mean 1 step to the sand!
Think: Honeymoon, Anniversary, Girls weekend, Boys Weekend, Grandparents and the kids, Diving Groups, Bird-watches, Fishers and people who just want to get-a-way from it all. Everyone loves Aqua Mondo. This is not your typical holiday rental. Aqua Mondo is a special place. A modest beach shaque with all the unique charms of a bygone era. Dont worry, It's doily free and, oh yes, and you can bring the dog!
Aqua Mondo builds on the charms of a 50's style 'beach shack 'by adding a touch of 'Palm Springs' to this unique location. Nestled between Redden Island Nature Reserve and the the Coral Sea, AquaMondo is part of a very special enclave.
If you appreciate contempory amenities , butterfly filled tropical gardens, retro inspired design and best of all, absolute beach front location, like many others... you'll fall in love with AquaMondo!
The property is conveniently located near major attractions in and around Cairns. The Great Barrier Reef is a mere 40 minute boat ride away, Cairns central 15 minutes, the Rainforest of the Tablelands and Port Douglas 30 to 45 minutes.
Within walking distance: The bird life of Redden Island Reserve and the sand spit of the (fish filled) Barron River.
AquaMondo is perfect if you are looking for a unique holiday experience, it is not your 'usual ' multi story 'concrete box' holiday style accommodation.
AquaMondo is within close proximity of the with the very best that Cairns has to offer. TRUE!
AquaMondo has three bedrooms. Two have double beds with beach views, the third has two king single beds.( These can be joined of course).
All bedrooms are air conditioned. Bedroom 1 and 2 have HD flat screens.
Bedroom 1 and 2 open onto the expansive Pool and Ocean deck which has an inground pool, BBQ area, outdoor shower and relax zone. Access to the beach is just 1 step via a gate on the deck.
The landscaping is lush and tropical. The garden is full of tropical fruit trees including Mango, Star Fruit, Custard Apple and Lychee. Numerous Palms and Orchids have been nurtured to create a cool retreat from the heat of the day.
The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped. The bar area has 2 wine fridges, an espresso machine . The kitchen offers 2 additional eating areas, cafe style interior or garden deck exterior.
AquaMondo has free wireless broadband.
The lounge is equipped with very comfortable furnishings, HD flat screen, Blue Ray player and 5.1 surround sound. ( Rob has selected a great range of DVD's for you to enjoy).(Ipod friendly)
The decor is retro inspired with a contemporary edge. While this is not 'Nanna's' holiday house, it will evoke the relaxed carefree spirit of the 50's.
If you're after a 5 star resort style holiday - this is not the place for you. Please, check out the other fabulous places available in Cairns. What I'm offering is something very different! (go rob).

Sublime!! !It is definitely the ultimate beach house holiday. The house is inspirational and gorgeously decorated. The view from the deck, including the pool, is breath taking. Everything we could need was provided. The beds were too comfortable!! All those little extras made it special like a well stocked pantry (yes! olive oil, salt and pepper etc), excellent kitchen facilities, beach towels and an extensive selection of DVD`s and CD`s. Not forgetting the fantastic audio visual set up. The location is brilliant. Just out of Cairns (10mins) Machans Beach is undeveloped and has a great community feel. The locals are so friendly. The pub/restaraunt is excellent. Highly recommend the Reggea Chicken. We stayed for a week and wished we could stay forever!! Loved it!

Sometimes life passes you by. You get so caught up in what happens next. You forget to take time out, breath and enjoy the moment you are in.
These 4 days at Easter. I was that selfish and I am glad I was!
I watched the mist and the clouds roll off the mountains, the tides turn and because I wasnt at my job- the whole world didnt stop.
Live, laugh, be calm, enjoy and if there is any better place in the world to do that I havent found it yet. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with my family we will never forget and will definitely be back.
How luck we have been to have had the opportunity to stay at your magnificent beach house. Nothing beats the sound of rolling waves to fall asleep and wake up to. The house had everything we could possibly need, so thank you for creating the perfect environment!
For those just arriving and thinking of things to do, we can recomend dinner down at the corner pub. Ebony and Irvory, Super food and great $10 nights. Parranella house (park) is worth the trip. Indescribable! Foaming fury sports rafting is awesome. Do not miss the trip to green island for amazing snorkling.
We love your house and couldnt have found a better place to Celebrate our first wedding anniversary. Thanks for having us!
Kate and Chris.
A Fantastic Place to chill out and re-charge the Batteries - love it!

AquaMondo provided a wonderfully quiet retreat for my family of six. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and deck area, and we fished on the beach every afternoon as we watched the night roll in. Rob has created an exceptionally inviting Holiday Home right on the water front, and has added his personal touch to create a bright and vibrant, modern home with all the trimmings and more. We have never felt more welcome into someone's home, and were thrilled to see he had stocked the fridge, hung Xmas decorations, Xmas lights, a Xmas tree and pressies for the whole family. A wonderful stay to remember - thank you AquaMondo.Vohland Family from Brisbane0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
The secrete is out. Didn���t think Cairns would have a little gem like this! Hidden away, minutes from the town and one step to a secluded beach. Every was considered from the cool design to the brilliant views from the pool deck. ( Ha, check out the outdoor shower).Loved the country town feel of Machans beach - and the cheap meals at the local pub.Got to meet a few of the locals at the fishing bridge. ( I���ll be back to catch the ���big one��� -next time). So much to love about our stay. From waking to the sound of ocean to the drinks on the back deck. Book me in for next year!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
A fantastic retreat for me and 5 friends after the hurly-burly week at Sydney Mardi Gras!! We swam, we slept, we ate and relaxed in glorious surroundings, far from the madd(en)ing crowds. Great base for exploring this fabulous coastline. Friendly welcome from Deb, toads and a mystery chicken! Happy days so quick to pass!! Go there, and be AquaMondo-ised!!0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
