Cat-boat Cottage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really suited our needs! We stayed at this property with our two dogs in July and we were very impressed. There was everything we needed including wifi. The garden was secure and there was a great reserve a few minutes walk away where the dogs could have a great run. If we visited the area again we would definitely book Cat Boat Cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have stayed many places in Cairns before but this is by far the best! The owners have thought of everything. A warm homely feeling, comfort and ideal for families. Large open home easily sleeps 6 with plenty of room to move. Highly recommended. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived to see such a nice clean home, large yard and secure location. You will not be disappointed.The owners are such a pleasure to deal with too.
