We had an excellent 5 day stay in one of the Pavilions. The room is unique with two sides looking out into the rainforest. The quality of finishes is superb. The timber frame building fitted out with the best fixtures and fittings and the highest quality linen and towels. Very private and only disturbed by the dawn chorus from the... More

Dianne is a very accommodating and friendly host offering great knowledge of the local area. The accommodation is very clean and beautifully presented, breakfast delicious. This B&B is exceptional value for money and agree as previously reviewed... More

THE place to escape to in Cairns with great accommodation, beautiful surroundings and outstanding service. Dianne is a brilliant host, constantly checking and ensuring that we were happy and comfortable. Having travelled significantly, nothing goes past a true Bed and Breakfast with the utmost attention to detail and service with a smile.

The whole experience was idyllic, the floor to ceiling glass doors looking out to verandahs surrounded by rich rainforest in a lovely secluded area at the foot of the foot of the mountains. Diane is a fabulous hostess - she spoiled us with great breakfasts including a wonderful fruit platter and choices of hot food, toasts and cereals. Great local... More

What an amazing place!! Gorgeous setting, very private bungalow, beautiful pool and Diane is a wonderful host. She thinks of everything, from helping with tours to recommending the best Thai food outside Thailand. Breakfasts were fantastic and fresh and the candles by the pool at night were a special touch. We loved our stay and just wish we'd had more... More

Beyond our expectations. This B&B is a hidden gem. Dianne is an excellent host, nothing is too much trouble. I had a special request before we even arrived - it was to be a birthday surprise - and yes, it certainly was, as Dianne added her personal touch and made it extra special. The scrumptious breakfasts and delectable fruit platters... More

My husband and myself arrived with perhaps higher than normal expectations of this property and what it had to offer, due to the reviews we had read on Tripadvisor. We were not disappointed at all, Dianne is an amazing hostess and went above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure our holiday was absolutely perfect. The Pavillions are wonderful,... More
