A unique cottage centrally located in the heart of Far North Queensland. Situated in the foothills Mt Whitfield and Lumley Hill it is close to the Botanical Gardens, as well as shops and cafes in the boutique precinct of Edge Hill. Only minutes to the airport or the centre of Cairns with its world class restaurants, and gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.

The cottage features 2 bedrooms and a sleepout. The 2 bedrooms are airconditioned with fan only in the sleepout. We can provide 2 queensize and 2 single beds (normal arrangement) or optionally 1 queensize and 4 singles. Please specify if you require this option.

There is a large outdoor area comfortably furnished with tables, chairs and gas barbecue. Ideal for relaxing at anytime of the day.

Enjoy the luxury created by the recent renovation and quality fitout. The cottage is fully furnished and is the perfect hideaway to escape to and relax in during a busy holiday schedule. The yard is fully fenced and ideal for pets and small children.

Cat-boat cottage is so named in honour of the Catalina Flying Boat squadrons that made Cairns airport, located at Aeroglen, their home during World War II.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great property, close to Cairns city Had a wonderful stay at the cottage, everything you need for a comfortable stay (just have to remember to bring my own hair dryer, being self contained) and would be handy to have a bigger bin in the kitchen. There was plenty of off street parking and a secure yard. The owner was very friendly, and said to come and see her if we needed anything. Took a little while to get used of the planes (being close to airport) but other than that would highly recommend.
