"In a small, friendly, local business you can tell they really care"

Meet the Cairns Sharehouse Family


The Cairns Sharehouse team is a family of dedicated amazingly friendly individuals who promise to go above and beyond to make sure staying with us is the best!  

All of our staff are very hands on, and can be found checking to make sure you have enough cutlery one minute, and be taking a booking in the office the next.  

We believe the best way to maintain our fantastic houses is to be out in the houses regularly, meeting our guests and ensuring that they are more than happy with their home.

Our Awesome Team

Tammy - Communications & Marketing Whiz

Tammy is a Cairns girl who spent 10 years overseas staying in plenty of hostels and sharehouses to quickly learn what makes an awesome stay! Tammy still loves travelling (mostly vicariously through our guests these days now she has become a grown up with kids!) and reliving her carefree days! Tammys claim to fame is the fact she has met Tony Blair, UK Prime Minister, and loves listening to cheesy 80 music. Tammy is responsible for all our communication, marketing, website and operations management.

Catherine - Operations & Front Desk Queen

Catherine is a born and bred Welsh lass from Cardiff who can get physical if asked ‘which part of English are you from’! Catherine moved to Cairns over a decade ago and whilst she loves the beautiful weather and regular BBQ, she still can’t develop a love for vegemite or cricket (but we are working on it). Catherine loves watching Wales win the rugby, and is passionate about ten pin bowling! Catherine primarily manages the booking office and working with our valued school/booking agents.

Phillip- Operations & Property King

Phil is a true blue Aussie guy from Brisbane. He says the word ‘mate’ at least 20 times a day and loves nothing more than a chat and hearing what is going on in your world. Phil is well known around the sharehouses as the guy who gets things done, and you can hear his keys jingling in his pocket as he runs about. He loves nothing more than chilling out watching sport on TV and teasing our guests about the cricket.
