We stayed for two nights with our fantastic hosts Robert and Adrienne during our trip up the Queensland coast. We were made to feel very welcome - a true home away from home - and our hosts made every effort to extend their hospitality including afternoon drinks and sitting with us at breakfast. Robert and Adrienne were always there to suggest where to go, what to do and see but without being intrusive. Robert even took time out to suggest a different route through northern Queensland to what we had originally planned based on his own trips. It turned out to be a fantastic detour through the Atherton Tablelands - an area of Australia we would have never discovered had it not been for Robert's kind recommendation. The lodgings are beautifully set in wonderful, well looked-after, gardens which offer a cool place to relax from the afternoon sunshine and become a sunrise and sundown natural habitat for the local wildlife. Eating breakfast with the local wallabies was something to behold! The rooms themselves were spotless and really appreciated the fact we were given free drinking water all the time, plus other things such as lending umbrellas in case it rained. Overall, a wonderful experience and stay. This is definitely somewhere we would recommend to friends and fellow travelers alike.
