Denise, Mary and last but not least Michelle really succeeded in giving us a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. Especially loved the terrace with the wonderful view (and the baby python). Breakfast was absolutely fabulous, Location is a bit remote but certainly not a problem when you have a car. The view really makes up for it. Rooms are small... More

About 7 clicks from the tiny coastal town of Port Douglas (pop. 3,000 full time residents swelling to 12k during peak seasons) sits a unique little B&B with only two double occupancy guest rooms. The sleeping units are immaculately painted and tiled in pleasing “beach style”, and furnished with king sized beds (dressed in crisp white linens), night tables and... More

Not only are the views from the dining/lounge area fantastic, but the breakfast itself was superb, The common area overlooks the sea, with plenty of room and seating options. Some nights we cooked our dinner on the BBQ and dined with a spectacular view. Hospitality was terrific, which made this a very pleasant place to stay near Port Douglas. The... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this magical hillside home away from home. Denise is lovely and a font of knowledge and we had many great chats around things Australian so got an insight we wouldn't have otherwise had. We were going it alone, trying to maximise our Kiwi dollar, and were really appreciative of the outdoor kitchen gazebo, with... More

This a delightful and refreshing experience which travellers to the Australian tropics must not miss. Ten minutes from Port Douglas overlooking the Coral Sea on a vantage point that enables panoramic 180 degree views. Our hosts are astute and perceptive people and proud our their enviable plot in paradise. Nestled amongst flora indigenous to the area this is a haven... More

Perfect location above the tree tops looking out to the Coral Sea. Hosts were warm, friendly and accommodating. Quiet, peaceful but still close enough to Port Douglas for shops, entertainment etc. Would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a lovely location away from the crowds, the only sounds were the many birds and wildlife around the forest and gardens.

A delightful bed and breakfast with beautiful and productive gardens, and views over the rain forest towards the sea. We stayed for three relaxing nights and every morning we chose something different from the ever-changing menu, varying from poached eggs and bacon to exotic fruit-based waffles with fruit freshly picked from their garden (banana, passionfruit, chocolate pudding fruit!), all beautifully...

This place is a must. Very friendly owners, amazing views, great food (with some exotic fruits), rich wild life (birds, goanas, frogs, spiders, and even spotted python). Will go back once back in Cairns area.

This is a wonderful B and B 10 minutes from Port Douglas so you need a car. Its a private house on the top of a hill in the middle of tropical gardens and the rain forest. If you are interested in birds and wildlife then this for you. So many beautiful tropical birds in their garden easily identified by... More

It is our most favorite place amongst all the places we stayed in Australia. Denise, Marine, Michelle and Michael offered us such a comfortable and relaxing accomodation that we would rather stay here for a lifetime. It was so pity that we got up late to miss several breakfast, since they made very delicious food which amused us the last... More
