“Lovely home in a very convenient location, highly recommended.”

Reviewed 4 Apr 2013

Lovely house that really feels like a home. Plenty of space inside and in the garden. Very convenient location for the city centre and close by to a large shopping centre. Lizzie and Nick are very friendly and go out of their way to help make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Response from the manager Thanks Anna. We are delighted to hear that Wilks felt like home for you while you had your own house renovated. Enjoy your new kitchen! Lizzie & NIck.

“Believe or not, the house is so nice!”

Reviewed 27 Feb 2013

Our recent trip to Cairns, Australia was fabulous. About 15 years ago, we visited Gold Coast which was another wonderful trip. The difference was we had an independent house in Cairns and we stayed in a hotel in Gold Coast. We make it a sort of rule to enjoy overseas trip at least once a year. Our basic way is to stay at one place for a week or two at a condominium or an independent house, because we just want to feel how people there enjoy their lives. We so far visited condominiums and independent houses in Boston, Chicago, Seattle, San Francisco, Los angles, London and Bath. I would say the holiday house in Cairns was the best one among all the accommodations we experienced so far. The house is beautifully maintained both inside and outside, neat and comfortable for a long stay. My wife and I flew from Osaka, Japan, and our son's family, his wife and three daughters, flew from Tokyo, and 7 of us enjoyed the stay very much. Our son's family are still thinking that they would like to settle down there if possible. Usually we have to read the manual to use the house. But this time, it was our first experience that the owner of the house, Nick, came and saw us when we arrived there and gave us proper instructions to use the house, which made us feel relaxed. The friendly chattering with Nick and Lizzie was our another nice memory in Cairns, which will last for many years to come.

“Best holiday home in Cairns”

Christmas in cairns - What could be better? There's hot & really hot, but my Christmas holiday couldn't have been more enjoyable thanks to the holiday home Lizzie and Nick Marshall have set up.If you're looking for a comfortable home-away-from-home than you can't go past the Wilks holiday house in Bungalow, Cairns. Sure, it's close to the city and all the great shopping just like the advertising says, but the Wilks Home offers that little bit extra I really didn't count on.Lizzie has thought of every detail for you. It's like I packed my bags up and put them down in my own home.Bored, then read a book there's a great selection, play a board game, get on the internet or watch a video - everything is provided. The kitchen is fully stocked (I cooked several meals there and didn't need extra dishes or knives like I've done in the past). There's even an esky (which really came in handy visiting friends). I loved the house the moment I walked in - it really made me feel like home. Lots to do in Cairns, but if all you want to do is sit then grab a glass of wine & head for either the front or back garden of the Wilks house, quite, lovely feeling of serenity. Thanks again Lizzie and Nick, the family really enjoyed it, can't wait to visit again. June from Miranda NSW

“What a fantastic 2 week holiday!”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2012

My family of 7 stayed in this house for 2 weeks in august, 2012. It has everything that you need for a really enjoyable stay. It was spotlessly clean and tidy and there was plenty of space for everyone. Lizzie thought of everything in the kitchen and it was just like being at home. A lovely T.V. room for the children and space to play in a safe back garden. A great location just 5 minutes drive from the city centre but off the main road so not noisy at all. The house just felt welcoming from the minute I stepped through the door so I would definately recommend this place to anyone considering a self catering stay in Cairns - plenty of choice for supermarkets and shopping centres within easy distance and loads of places to visit. Thanks to Lizzie for attention to detail and making this such a good holiday.
