Old world charm
Wonderful stay at Zanzoo. Old world charm with new world facilities. 3 generations, 13 of us in total. Had a great time in Cairns and at Zanzoo. Beautiful grounds, pool and tennis court and comfortable, fully equipped colonial style homestead.
Great to hear that your stay at Zanzoo Retreat was a happy one and that the house suited your family! We hope to hear from you again if you come back to the Far North. Kind regards Lizzie
The property was perfect for our family of 16. Large grounds were a bonus. The tennis court and swimming pool were well used. Even though there were many people staying, there was plenty of room
Thank you for your lovely feedback Pamela. 13 acres of grounds give a large family group staying at Zanzoo Retreat plenty of space. Its like being in the country but also such a convenient location as its only a short car ride for many Cairns activities. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. Kind regards, Lizzie
Great spacious property
The booking was seamless and the host was so helpful. The house is lovely, very clean and plenty of rooms/bathrooms.
We had an issue with the fire alarms going off late one night but it was not the fault of the host (or anyone) just an issue that needed fixing.
Thanks again to Lizzie.
My apologies for the faulty fire alarm. This is an issue in the tropics where humidity can set them off. We are still searching for a brand of alarm which can be deactivated safely should a false alarm happen without compromising its function to detect a fire.
Thank you for your very kind comments on Zanzoo Retreat and we hope you enjoyed your time in Far North Queensland for your family get-together. Best wishes Lizzie
Xmas 2018 at Zanzoo Retreat
Zansoo Retreat was everything it promised to be. A clean and spacious home with room enough for all. The Manager and Caretaker were immediately available if needed but respected our privacy. The pool was large and clean and where we spent most of our time. Tennis was played as well as cricket in the spacious grounds. I would highly recommend this property for a large group. Five Stars!
So nice to hear that the house suited you and your family for their Christmas Holiday... the pool was probably the best place to be as this Christmas was one of the wettest we have had! I glad to hear that the tennis court got used too. Thanks for recommending Zanzoo Retreat. Best wishes Lizzie
The house is big with lots of bathroom, prefect for big group.
Excellent choice for the group.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review.
We are delighted to hear that the house was suitable for your family holiday in Cairns, and met with your expectations. We hope that you will contact us again if you or your friends come to the Far North for another holiday.
Loved our visit to Zanzoo Retreat
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. House was perfect for large family group. Very clean. Great quality linen and towels. Everyone we dealt with re the house were friendly and very helpful.
Thank you very much for your kind words Sharon. I'm so glad your Mum was able to have her holiday in Cairns too. Best wishes, Lizzie
