“Beautiful holiday home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

My family and friends had a wonderful holiday, Mornington is a lovely clean and tidy holiday renal and the pool was a big hit with our 3 children. The home is very well presented and is in the perfect location to visit all the sights Cairns has to offer, Tim and Wendy (the owners) live next door and were very welcoming and helpful both before our trip and during. The house is well set up with everything that we needed and the beds were nice and comfy. Local shops are just a short drive away and the beautiful Kewarra beach is just 5 mins down the road. My boys are already asking when we can go back :) thank you for a wonderful holiday.

“Absolutely beautiful spacious house and wonderful garden with pool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

I loved this house, perfectly located for sightseeing and Tim and Wendy were a fantastic help with anything we needed to know and they really make sure that you enjoy your stay. Champagne and fresh flowers on arrival...what better way to start a holiday and even got us a discount off our trip to the reef! It was a gem to find this house, spotlessly clean and the pool was great as the temp was in the high 30's when we stayed there. I would recommend this lovely house to everyone who likes a home from home.

“Mornington was an excellent house to holiday at”

We had a fabulous time at Kewarra Beach and Mornington was a lovely house to stay in. Its location was perfect for us and the house itself was beautifully kept and had a very high level of cleanliness through out. The big bonus was that the owners live next door and were great as tour guides and ever ready with helpfull tips. Highly recommended.

“Perfect place for your Queensland holiday!”

Mornington was simply amazing. We were there on our own, the two of us, for a couple of days and then were joined by family, and the location was absolutely prime. We spent three days diving from Port Douglas, an easy drive up an absolutely beautiful road. We spent a couple of days in Cairns, another easy drive the other way. We went inland to Kuranda and had a great time there as well. Mornington's location is perfect for any touring to be done in this area.
The house itself is terrific too, the pool was such a welcome asset after a long day at the Croc farm, or wandering through Kuranda. We were in it at least twice a day. The beds were extremely comfortable.
But what makes Mornington special is the hosts - Wendy and Tim are like old friends you've just met. Ask any question about touring, or about the area - they will know the answer.
One thing - make certain the email address is permitted on your email, as if you're waiting for a response it may well have hit your spam folder. It happened to us till I marked it as permitted on my email.
