  • 5 star review  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!

    5 star review  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

    5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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

  • 5 star review  This share house has a large number of people, but buildings were separated and those were cleaned very nicely, so I had a very comfortable time. Owners and staff were very kind and always friendly. I appreciate them very much. Thank you.

    5 star review  Kangarooms is a really nice share house. There is clean, the owners and staff are very kind. of course, security is safe because it is an auto-lock gate and each room has its own auto-lock key, so you can spend very comfortably. They also clean the room and the building once a week. There are four buildings in total, one of which is for women only. I used to be a normal building for men and women, but I enjoyed eating with the same sharemates, watching dvd in the communal living room, bbqing , and having fun in the pool. I had great times with them . We were going out ,shopping, helping and supporting each other it likes a family . The location is also very close to Cairns Central, the bus stop and within walking distance from town alone. There are also various events in the Kangarooms When I return to Cairns, I would like to stay the Kangarooms again . I love Kangarooms❤️🦘 カンガルームはとても素晴らしいシェアハウスです。とても敷地内も広く、綺麗で、オーナーやスタッフもとても親切です。セキュリティ面でももちろん、オートロックの敷地の為安全で、個人ルームもそれぞれにオートロック付きなのでとても快適に過ごせます。週1回部屋、棟の清掃も行ってくれます。 全部で四棟の建物がありますが、その中の一つは女性だけの入居の棟があります。男性立ち入り禁止です。 わたしは、男女ミックスの普通の棟でしたが同じシェアメイトと楽しく食事を作ったり、共同リビングでdvdをみたり、敷地内でbbqをしたり、プールに入ったりと楽しい時間を過ごしました。 カンガルームで共に過ごす仲間たちと一緒に出かけたり、買い物にもいったり、助け合い支え合いで家族のようなとてもいい経験ができました。 また、立地もケアンズ セントラルにとても近かったり、バス停にも近かったり、タウンからでも歩ける距離です。カンガルーム内で様々なイベントもあります。 ケアンズ に戻るときはカンガルームに入居したいと思います。 カンガルームが大好きです🥰
