Kirsten Frances Cairns, January 2017


“Wonderful property with easy access to 3 beautiful pools to laze the days away in. Not far from centre of town (if you’re a runner, the run to the esplanade and back is an easy and beautiful run). We had a car for visiting cairns and surrounds but tour operators will pick you up from the property. We were here for Christmas and New Year’s and whilst there were people around there were no crazy parties – just very chilled out vibes. Great place for a relaxing holiday, especially with kids.”

Rachele Sloane Cairns, January 2017


“This fantastic One Bedroom apartment did not fail us once on our 2 week stay in Cairns. We visited over the Christmas and New Year’s period and received exceptional customer service from Short Term Rentals both during and prior to our stay.We were provided with an emergency mobile number in case we needed anything overnight or on the public holidays which is always reassuring. The photos of the apartment are accurate, added to this, fantastic water pressure, a soft mattress and facilities to keep the apartment clean.We rented a car and didn’t find it difficult at all to find parking. We also went out for dinner along the main strip of Cairns and walked each time, it was approximately a 20mins stroll along the lovely Esplanade (which also has BBQ facilities available to use only 5mins away from the apartment), The apartment is situated on the 3rd floor and we found it to be quiet and safe whilst we were there. Definitely value for money and if in Cairns again, we would definitely stay again.”

Peggy Kalatzis Cairns, January 2017

The apartment block was quiet, well maintained and felt very safe. It was in a great location, close to town and in a good neighbourhood.”

L. Woodfall Cairns, October 2016


“Although we arrived on a Saturday, it was easy for us to access the studio apartment, The Rentals Short Term staff corresponded well with us by emails and phone calls. It was in a good neighbourhood, consisting of big hotels on the Esplanade. We can easily access a lot of the city amenities as the bus stop is just a 2 minute walk, saving us the cost of renting a car. The service provided by the friendly staff of the Rentals Short Term was outstanding. This holiday accommodation is indeed value for money. It is a must to stay when one travels to Cairns.”

Ofelia Cruz Cairns, October 2016


“The house is in a great location – it is in a quiet residential neighbourhood but within walking distance of shops and the beach.

From my initial booking and check in your team has been wonderful, the laughs I had with the team with my consistant stuff ups of my booking details (wrong phone number, then wrong card, wrong email) through to the sesitivity and understanding now is quite unsurpassed by another booking agency I have ever used, congratulations to you and your team.”

S Collins Cairns, November 2015


“The apartment is comfortable and has a great out door space with a BBQ, beds were good and the bathrooms are very nice with a good shower pressure. View is of the marina and you have the cruise boats going out in the mornings and coming back mid afternoon. We didn’t find this a problem. We like being on the water with the comings and goings of all the craft! Nice break, most enjoyable!!”

Rhonda Cairns, July 2015


“We have had our units managed by the wonderful team at Short Term Accommodation for over 3 years now I could not recommend them high enough that would justify the way they have managed our properties.  The bottom line is you want professional service with low outlays and high returns for your investment properties then you need to let Short Term Accommodation handle your properties.  I just wish we had have found them much sooner.”

Owner – Lee & Yumi, June 2015


“Rentals Short Term has consistently supported the owners of Sunshine Tower and has assisted in overcoming the chaotic mess of the administration system.  I know there is still a lot more to be done on management controls, but I know I can depend on Rental Short Term to contribute input”

Owner – G Hill, June 2015


“This apartment was all we could have wished for – location, excellent walking distance to all facilities.  Views from balcony wonderful and apartment very comfortable and clean.  Felt very safe – Fantastic security and added bonus of car parking space would definitely book again through Rentals Short Term after this experience.  Many thanks – Just a shame about the weather – rain for 9 days!!”

S. Dart Cairns, June 2015


“We have been with the Cairns team for two years (about) and have found them very friendly and responsive to our needs.  The property has always been returned to us in a clean and tidy fashion and suits our purpose of flexible tenancy.  Five star performance.


Owner – Colin & Sandra, June 2015


“The apartment was everything it had promised.  Clean and well appointed, although there was no iron or ironing board, Kirsten from Rentals Short Term made quick work of delivering said items very cheerfully.  Location was the best!  Close to main centre, 3 min walk, but with a water view so lovely outlook form what was a spacious deck area.  We liked being able to self cater if we chose so worked well.  Cruises to the reef leave from right outside, restaurants and bars handy, very happy with our selection here!

M. Gates Cairns, June 2015


“I stayed in a sweet Queenslander home opposite Southern Cross Apartments.  While climbing the stairs to the back entrance I was greeted by these lovely little birds who are local residents in the surrounding trees.  Spectacular views of mountains at sunset in two directions.  Friendly regular guests in the other two rooms.  A little noisey on Saturday night and cold in winter at night but otherwise had a homely feel.”

E. Firxpatrick  Cairns, June 2015


“Many thanks for the professional way that your company has dealt with our accommodation booking in Cairns, we have enjoyed our stay very much.”

Regards Bronwyn  Cairns, June 2015


“We initially engaged with Short Term Accommodation in 2011 for a small rental property  and since then have been using them for all of our accommodation needs in the Townsville and Cairns regions, both on small and large scale projects.

The team have always been very professional with a friendly approach; and on countless occasions have provided several alternatives for our accommodation requirements which has made doing business with them over the past 3 years a pleasure. Their knowledge of the properties they manage and the surrounding regions has been greatly appreciated and alleviated the pressures of dealing with several agencies.

I would like to thank Short Term Accommodation and their team for the continued support and would recommend them for all accommodation needs for both personal and business occasions.”

“We did enjoy our time in Cairns so much and just sat back and laughed about what splendor you had given us. Australia has left a great impression on us. Beach area fabulous – we walked miles and did so many wonderful outings. So glad we found your company and trust that your future will be great.”

Sincerely Marj and Dav  Cairns


“In February this year I had to move from Darwin back to Cairns as part of my employment transfer. As always accommodation is the biggest issue I needed to deal with. I went onto the internet and found Short Term Accommodation Cairns. From my first contact I found the guys were so easy to deal, so helpful and the best part of their service, absolutely nothing was an issue. This is so important and I am very happy to say it was such a pleasure to deal with this company, I hope that some where down the track I get to use them again as that was a great and very easy experience.”

“Just wanted to say ‘Thank you’ again for getting us some nice accommodation at the Colonial Club during such a busy time, all the best”

Chris Hedley


“Before we contacted Geena we had a newly completed unit in a resort style development that we could not find a tenant for. Geena quickly assessed that it was very suitable for short stay accommodation. As we live in Western Australia we relied on Geena to fully furnish our unit then manage and promote it via her website. Throughout the whole process Geena kept us up to date with phone calls, emails and pictures. We now have a stunning looking unit, well advertised on a fantastic web site, that provides us with an above the rate rental income. If you want more than just a property manager we would be very happy to recommend Geena and her efficient “rentalsshortterm.com” team. We are now looking forward to booking our unit for our own holiday next year. Thank you Geena.”

Janet and Graeme Pages-Oliver


“Just couldn’t pass up this chance to wish you a wonderful Merry Christmas from Canada. I will never forget the great time we had in Australia and how much we enjoyed meeting you – and the good accom. you arranged for us.

We don’t have snow yet – which is very strange for us but we are enjoying getting around easily. I quite imagine that it is hot for you.

Merry Christmas and best wishes for a very healthy and happy New Year.”

“Hi Geena

I am writing to thank you and to give you a recommendation as a property manager. You have helped me so much with the rental of my unit in Sunshine Towers and can’t thank you enough. You have been very professional and have dealt with any issues ASAP and with the utmost respect for all involved.

I look forward to working with you in the future.”

“Geena & Team

I need to share comment on our awesome experience with your team during a recent 10 day stay in Cairns.

From our initial contact several months ago by phone through to our departure we had the best experiences, service and everyone was prepared to spend a bit of time to guide us through the accommodation process.  Despite travelling often this was our first ‘short stay’ experience!

Special mention for Alice and Kelly who were prepared to guide me through their personal preferences of our ‘short list’ of apartment properties.  The magnificent Andria provided us with a detailed and cheerful greeting and handover on arrival and then spent considerable (‘above and beyond’) time helping book Mantra accommodation for us in Port Douglas.  As this was a chrissy present for my children she then patiently printed colour pictures off the net to slip inside their gift cards!

We are away from our home in Darwin travelling to four Australian states for a month, mainly based in hotels and we need to share that this has been a standout experience for us.  The recent arrival of our first grandchild in Cairns will see us return more often.

Well done to your all.”

Thanks again and Warm Regards

John McNeur and Kimberley Trunfull
