  • I lived for 2 and a half years and would live longer if I didn't have to move. Super organized and clean place. great place to learn english when you are an international student. Melanine, Jorge and Lisa are the best people you will meet at Kangarooms they will welcome you as part of the Family. I was very happy to have lived these years there and they will surely be forever in my heart and memory.

  • Great location, great people and super accommodating for all types of visitors! Due to covid and the small rental market, I looked into student housing and found Kangarooms. Melanie and Lisa made my stay so easy while looking for permanent accommodation. They were really understanding of my situation and were genuinely interested in helping me as much as they can! Everyone staying there was so welcoming and made it so easy to settle into a new city. Would 100% recommend to anyone from placement students to long-term tenants!

    Stayed here for a few months and can truly say that this place is fantastic to live. Easy walking distance to the shopping centre and Esplanade. Bed comfortable and rooms have a fan & AC. The communal lounge rooms are comfy to hang out in and have a chat. A real community has been developed here and the long term residents are very welcoming to new people! Thx Mel and Lisa

    Clean bedrooms, bathrooms, spacious lounge area and fully equipped kitchen, upstairs room I was in remained well aired, if a bit humid if you had the blind down at night, rooms on the inner circle could be a bit noisy at night or from 7 in the morning, internet worked well, all other utilities were modern and efficient, will stay again if need be.

    CK is a place where you have your independence and the community when you needed. Melanie and Lisa are just amazing and supportive all the time. It's clean, neat, and beautiful. Couldn't expect more!! Also, it is the most sustainable place I have ever come across, if you are one of those people, this is the place you should live sustainably without guilt.

I was so lucky to stay here especially covid pandemic time.I felt secure. The private room is good for studying and dining room is good for socialised. I also enjoyed to meet people from different countries. I can say you cannot find such a nice place in the city except here! Thank you for having me!

  • Such a great home away from home. The rooms are a great size, air conditioned, large desk and much more. Common areas (bathroom, kitchen and lounge) are kept clean. Decent amount of space in the fridge (whole shelf to yourself). Staff are friendly and welcoming. Would recommend Cairns Kangarooms to UNI students who have to travel for assessment/ placement
