Although we did not stay at Gumtrees on Gillies, we did have a most enjoyable time at Penny and Jorg's other place - The Blue House in Yungaburra. It is walking distance from everything. The house itself is appealing and well appointed. We loved being able to sit on the verandah to soak up the peace and watch the birds... More

My husband and I have stayed here a few times and cannot rave enough about how fantastic this place is. Top class service and a relaxing atmosphere. 5 stars all the way. We stayed in the Australia room and watched Crocodile Dundee and enjoyed a relaxing spa bath with a few glasses of port. If you are in the area... More

Jorg and Penny exceptional hosts. My partner and I stayed in the Moroccan room, and were delighted from the start - a large spa bath, beautiful wood fire, complementary chocolates and port, and a delicious home-cooked breakfast. This was everything we could have asked for and more.

Thank you, Jorg and Penny for helping my sight-impaired sister, enjoy her Christmas holiday @ Gumtree on Gillies. We stayed in the Moroccan Room and found it so beautiful. Penny is so happy-go-lucky, and made us feel comfortable, (nothing was "too-much-trouble".) I enjoyed patting the resident CAT..(who greeted me on the back patio, early morning)....and the tranquility of the units... More

This was our second stay in Gumtree on Gilles, the previous being 6 years ago, and the hospitality has not changed. The rooms are spacious with exotic decor, Moroccan, Egyptian, African. The estate is quiet and rings with the sounds of birds in the morning. There is good access to all the Atherton sites. Hot breakfast is served on the... More

We were definitely charmed by this delightfully unique B&B situated on the fringe of the equally delightful historic town of Yungaburra. We stayed in the Egyptian room which felt quite sumptuous and exotic, with many small individual touches adding to it's warmth and ambience. Not with standing an Egyptian pharaoh offering us port and choccies as we entered the room!... More

Hi Jen and Bob, I am so glad that you had such a great experience here with us at Gumtree B&B, and you found some welcome relief from the heat and humidity of Cairns up here.

I stayed here for just one night with my partner a couple of weeks ago. We wish we'd had longer to spend here because it was so relaxing. The themed room had so much attention to detail.
