House Rules

Prices are subject to seasonal change which is not able to be displayed on this site. price confirmation is required prior to booking.

Parties & loud or raucous gatherings are prohibited. The house is located in a quiet street where noise travels very easily, particularly at night.

Guests at the house who have not been clearly identified in initial booking are not permitted.

By council law, guest groups cannot be made up of 7 or more unrelated people, by blood or marriage.

The property is unfenced & located in natural rainforest, & is not suitable for pets of any description.

Breach of these requirements may result in visitors being asked to leave.

Our advertised price is based on 2 people sleeping in each double or queen bed, of which there are 4 upstairs & 1 down. We do frequently offer discounts where this means that the downstairs studio & ensuite is not utilised, so that 8 people can all be accommodated at first floor level. Because we can cater for up to 14 people with additional double bunk bed, fold out bed, & mattresses, we can also offer bedding arrangements where people do not have to share double beds if required, however bedding required surplus to numbers of guests is charged at $15/bed/night. For example, the house can accommodate 9 people all sleeping in separate beds, however the additional 4 beds attract additional cost.

Thanks for a pleasant stay at Greg's Treehouse.
It's really the "treehouse" in rain forest. Actually it looks as shown in the picture.
It is clean and close to the airport and the beach. I think that a "treehouse" is one of the best booking options in Cairns in hot period - the house is always a bit cool and fresh. We had 6 adults sleeping in 4 beds upstairs and 2 children downstairs - therefore, we had to book 6 beds instead of 4 twin beds. It was necessary to follow the instructions and be aware of this when booking.
Unfortunately, we were unable to use the 4th stove burner. All other kitchen appliances worked perfectly.
A lot of nice household stuff. We knew that we woudn’t have free wifi but we were able to use a mobile network on the veranda and it was not a problem. Again thanks for the great stay! We enjoyed it very much.

It was a pleasant stay at Greg's Treehouse. It's really a "treehouse" with a lot of greenery and trees. The neighbour was lovely. It's handy as the house is equipped with mosquito netting for all the rooms and most of the common areas in the house. Appreciate it very much and there are many rooms so a group stay is best for this. It very clean except probably some places has cobwebs ie. the garage. But overall great experience and Cairns isn't that big afterall. As long as you rent a car, it's very convenient to move in and out of the vicinity. Close proximity to the airport and city. As we were driving a 8 seater vehicle, it was kinda hard to park in the garage itself but we could still park our vehicle at the side of the curb so it was okay. Well probably can include free wifi next time :) or probably you do have but didn't manage to get the password. Nowadays people always need to be connected :) Thanks for the great stay! enjoyed it very much! instructions were easy to follow.
