“The epitome in bed and breakfast accommodation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

This is an exceptional b & b, professionally managed by approachable and caring hosts. The architecturally designed residence had guest accommodation in mind whilst the open plan living area enables the beautiful pool and surrounds to be enjoyed. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and one must be proud of this exposure to Australian excellence in holiday accommodation to the 95 percent ratio of overseas travellers. Well done and thanks for such a perfect holiday experience.

We love staying at B&B places and this was one of the nicest we have stayed at. Leona and Bob were so friendly and helpful, the room was lovely, position was great as easy access to the beach - it's only 5 Min drive to the shops. The villa has a lovely pool. Leona and Bob have lots of tips and helpful info and booked a great rainforest tour.

I went up last year in the July holidays to compete in the Cairns soccer mini cup which was being held in Cairns (1 hour drive south) but I thought I would extend it into a holiday. I went out to Low Isles where we all went snorkelling straight off the beach and Leona directed me to many other tours and restaurants. The room was beautifully set out and you can tell that they've put effort into it because it really does show.

The pool looks amazing and one night I went into it and it was extremely relaxing. I loved waking up to the sounds of the birds in the morning so I went down to the local zoo to eat breakfast with the birds.

All round it was a great trip and I have already booked another one these July holidays with my sister.

Room Tip: The red room has a spa bath but less views over the pool and back yard.

Great house for a relaxing stay. Walk along Four Mile Beach ( which incidentally is not four miles long) to Port Douglas Central or a short drive.
Hosts very helpful.. dropped us into Port Douglas main street.. about 5 min drive.
Wonderful Breaky with lots of interesting fruits.
Dined in some lovely restaurants.. a special is Nautilus.. but you must try Salsa ( across road from little chapel).. fantastic linguine!!
Rooms were great with a small fridge and tea making facilities.
Love to get back there sometime.

Room Tip: Liked our Green room as it had two windows in the bathroom and also a window above our bed head

Leona and Bob could not have been more helpful and accommodating, and they make you immediately feel like longtime friends. The bedrooms all have a large private balcony that overlooks the pool and the gardens. If you are looking for the exotic, open-air experience, you can leave the glass bi-fold doors wide open and listen to the sounds of the tropical birds and the wind rustling through the palm trees and ferns. Or, you can close them and turn on the air conditioner. Breakfast was perfect, with assorted breads, cereals, juices and yogurt and an abundant offering of fruits all freshly cut by Leona each morning. Quick access to the famous Four Mile beach and there was hardly another soul around – it was beautiful and peaceful. Excellent recommendations from Leona and Bob on the best tours to take. I highly recommend Tony's Daintree Tour and Wavelength's snorkeling tour of the Great Barrier Reef. Thank goodness that Leona suggested staying for four days instead of three…next time it will be longer. Thank you for a memorable experience.

We visited Jan 16-19, 2013. The drive from Cairns airport to Frangipani in Port Douglas took about 45 minutes but was very easy (even though I hadn't driven on the wrong side of the road/car for many years). Leona gave us great directions and we were able to stop along the way to pick up some supplies and get some cash from the ATM. Bob and Leona were great hosts!! Bob gave us a tour of Port Douglas after we got settled in following our arrival. Frangipani was very comfortable, after flying from Dallas to Brisbane, then Brisbane to Cairns and finally the drive, it was great to have a comfortable place to crash! We stayed three nights in the Red Room. I have to admit that coming from the US, my wife and I couldn't really get into the open air style of living so we closed the beautiful glass doors overlooking the pool area and the louvered doors. We are used to an air conditioned sleeping environment and the self-controlled unit worked fine. Frangipani is 10 minutes away from the heart of Port Douglas - lots of restaurants, shops, things to do. We were picked up at the B&B for our Daintree Rainforest tour (not to miss). We drove to the harbor area to meet our GBR outing (excellent). We were very comfortable at the B&B. Breakfasts were great! There is a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room that we really didn't use. The bathroom is very nicely appointed. Large screen TV was great to late night TV viewing. WIFI didn't work to well in our room but worked great in the downstairs common area. Bob and Leona really love providing the best possible experience for their guests and they succeeded as far as we are concerned.

We arrived with our three children to stay for two nights. The house is really lovely with a fabulous pool dug into rocks. Leona and Bob were very kind and helpful giving us a great restaurant recommendation where we ate on both nights. Leona even posted my son's cuddly parrot back to us in England. They couldn't have been nicer and while it's not the cheapest place to stay, I don't think you'll find anywhere better.
