About Kim Burton

Our names are Peter and Kim. We purchased the home in 2012 after staying at the home, in that year. We loved the home and the area. We live in Melbourne, Australia.

Kim Burton purchased this house in 2012

Why Kim Burton chose Cairns

We have five children. Three of them now have their own homes and partners and we also have four grandchildren.

There is plenty of room for the whole family. Melbourne can be quite cool at times, and we love to head up to North Queensland for the sun and sea.

Paradise on the Coral Sea! Absolutely Amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Bella Vista was everything we had hoped it would be and more! Kim [owner] was quick to respond to our request and the booking details went very smoothly. Jenny [house manager] was there when we arrived and showed us around the beautiful home. Any questions we had during our stay were quickly answered by Jenny. The house is very well maintained with a fully equipped kitchen. We were fortunate enough to enjoy perfect weather! The kids loved the pool and we were able to BBQ dinner under the stars every night. The house is located in the perfect area with access to all of the Northern Beaches attractions: AJ Hackett Bungee Jumping, Kuranda, Port Douglas, Great Barrier Reef, Mossman Gorge, Foaming Fury White Water Rafting and more. The house is right across the street from the beach and we enjoyed long walks on the beach first thing in the morning. If we are fortunate enough to return to Australia, staying at Casa Bella Vista will definitely be on our agenda!

A slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate to stay at this beautiful home for a second time in 5 years. It was as wonderful as we remembered...a true slice of Heaven. Daily strolls on the beach, swimming in the Coral Sea, going to Strait on the Beach, and relaxing every evening in a spacious, well-kept home listening to the waves was just what the doctor ordered. The magnificent sunrises outside the master bedroom are worth the early morning awakening. To top it all off the Burtons were wonderful to work with, as was Jenny, our gracious host. Our only regret was leaving, as we are sure yours will be as well. We hope to return someday in our future!

Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with both of our sets of parents recently stayed at Casa Bella Vista and we had a fantastic time. The house was luxurious and spacious. The upstairs bedrooms allowed for beautiful ocean sunrise views and we were able to fall asleep to the sound of the gently crashing waves. The area is so tranquil and quiet and was exactly what we were looking for. There was so much space available where we could relax both inside as well as outside. The equiped kitchen allowed for easy meal prep on days we wanted to stay in. I left a piece of my heart there and will certainly be returning again sometime in the future!

Holiday Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Corresponding with Kim was great and the house was perfect. We had family from around the world and spent a week between the fantastic pool and the sights in the surrounding area. The location was close to the airport for all the pick ups and very close to the Gondola to Kuranda. I would highly recommend this property for any family holiday.

Fantastic property and location, wonderful hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property. The amenities were all great. It rained for part of our stay and there were plenty of DVD's and games to entertain everyone, not to mention the free Wi-Fi. The pool was amazing and the beach front location unbeatable.

Considering there were 12 of us staying together we never felt cramped or like we were on top of each other.

But the best part of this property is how pleasant and easy it was to deal with both Kim, the property owner, and Jenny, the property manager. Emails were promptly responded to, the deposit was refunded very quickly and they both went out of their way to make sure we had all the information we needed to enjoy our holiday.

I have no doubt that if we return to Cairns we will stay here again, and have already recommended the property to friends who are looking for a holiday house.
