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 the knowledgable hosts - Denise and her sister Marie. There are two double letting bedrooms and good en suite bathrooms.These have fans and air con. Complimentary tea and coffee provided. They do fabulous breakfasts and stunning dinners to order with mango, star fruit and other wonderful fruits from their gardens. Super shellfish and lovely organic meat.You eat these in a wonderful open sitting room built as a deck extension with views over the rain forest to the ocean. There is a lovely natural swimming pool - very welcome after a hot day exploring. They are a wonderful couple and couldn't be more helpful assisted by their lovely family. They can get discounts from all the excursions in the area and their charges are very fair in an expensive Australia. They are in a good position to visit all the attractions that this coast offers just off the Captain Cook highway. We would recommend it as a good alternative to more pricey Port Douglas. The only down side when we visited at the beginning of February are the mosquitos in the evening when you are sitting on their deck -bring plenty of bug repellant. But we expected this in the rain forest. It doesn't spoil the charm of Coral Sea Retreat.
