About Heide Schmidt
My life has always been full of adventures before I settled in Far North Queensland 15 years ago. I travelled the world and finally settled here in the beautiful tropical North. I am a nature loving, outdoor, sporty, happy nature. I can talk a lot or listen a lot. My dog Winston (Toy poodle) is spoiled and loves company. I am a bit of a food and coffee addict and I know all the best and latest places to make to go.
Heide Schmidt purchased this Apartment in 2003

Thank you Heide for such a great stay in your wonderful home! We loved the space and everything available that we might need. The pool was welcome relief at the end of a busy day and your company and advice were fabulous. Every recommendation you made was excellent and a match for what we needed. Finally we loved Winston. We will certainly recommend your place to anyone we know coming to Cairns.
Thank you for your excellent review and it was a pleasure having you stay at The Winston. Looking forward to a visit to your part of the world . Safe travel
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Heide's comfortable and spacious home, surrounded by lush gardens. The location was excellent, a short drive in all directions to major attractions and towns. Heide was the perfect host, so generous and welcoming, and provided many wonderful suggestions for restaurants, tours, markets, shopping and general information about the area. Little dog, Winston, was an added bonus!
Thank you Georgia, it was a pleasure having you and i felt very privileged to have met you. You are the perfect guest . Safe travel
An enchanting place!
We miss it already! It was perfect for us. Clean, comfortable, in an idyllic setting. The location was great and the amenities were excellent. Jumping into the (beautiful) pool several times a day was much appreciated. Everything was as represented, but even better! We loved our host Heide, and her adorable little dog Winston. This is one of the best places we ever stayed in.
Thank you for your wonderful review and Winston was waiting for you at the door to get his treats.
I hope your stay in Australia will continue to be outstanding all the way.
VRBO works best when you stay at a place where the owner is also present. You get to interact with the owner(s) and are able to learn about their country and locality.
Heidi is a wonderful host, and her house is amazing. You have an entire side of her place as your own, with everything provided. You can use her swimming pool, washer and dryer. She was previously in the travel industry and has two folders on the desk sub-divided by places to see, things to do, restaurant recommendations, etc.
When we returned home each day, she asked what we had done and what are plans were for the next day, and she was always helpful with suggestions and had a genuine interest in our stay. She even gave us suggestions for Perth, where she previously lived and which was one of our stops on our trip.
Great breakfasts at the Casual Café and The Nerd, right across from the beach! The drive to Port Douglas to visit the Great Barrier Reef and further north for the rain forest does not take too long, and the house is only about a 30 minute drive from the airport - once you get used to the traffic circles.
A great stay. Thanks so much for your hospitality Heidi.

Wonderful Stay in Paradise
We had the most fun with Heidi. She was very helpful providing us with all sorts of places to visit, even including maps! Her place is completely relaxing and beautiful. Thank you so much for making sure we were completely at ease and comfy, (loved playing with Winston around the pool)! Staying at The Winston was the best part of our visit to Australia. 🌸� 🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�🌸�
Perfect beach get away!
Heide and Winston were great hosts! The home was cosy with everything you need to enjoy your stay! Only a 5 minute walk to the beach, the house is centrally located as it is only a 20 minute drive to downtown Cairns and even closer to many of the local sites/local activities. Heide was very helpful in helping us with planning our site seeing as she is familiar with the area and has even prepared maps and information on all the local tours from snorkeling to visiting Hartley's wildlife center! Thanks Heide and Winston it was such a pleasure to meet you, we enjoyed renting your beautiful home!
Most delightful guests and we were sad to say good bye. I can highly recommend to any host with confidence.
Thanks again for all your kindness which was very much appreciated.
