“Fabulous every time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2008

We live on the coast & sometimes stay at Yungaburra for a weekend getaway. Since we found Allumbah pocket cottages a couple of years ago we dont bother with anywhere else. Its romantic & cosy with spa baths & log fires, the cottages are in a nice garden & its right in the middle of town so its easy to walk to the restaurants, what more could you want??

My fiance and I stayed at the Allumbah Pocket Cottages for a quiet getaway & to take some time out - we were not disappointed. The location was so convenient as once we arrived, we could walk to all the restaurants & village centre. Best of all - the cottages are just across the road from the monthly market site. The cottages themselves are very comfortable with a wood fire as well as reverse cycle air conditioning which proved very handy as the wood was a bit damp & difficult to light. The cottages had everything you need for a quiet "weekend in" with a comfy couch, throw rugs, magazines & fluffy robes. The bathroom in particular is impressive with a corner spa under louvered windows overlooking your own private garden. Lovely aromatherapy products such as bubble bath, body lotion and candles were provided which really added to our expereince. The provisions provided for breakfast were delicious, especially the freshly baked warm bread every morning. I would definitely recommend Allumbah Pocket Cottages to anyone seeking bit of R&R or wanting a good base to explore the beautiful Atherton Tablelands.

We stayed at this delightful collection of cottages during the summer in 2003. the owners and hosts Janet and Keith Mole were fantastic and made us feel really welcome. Each of the five or six cottages are tastefully furnished and offer all the creature comforts you would expect from a luxury hideaway and more. The bathrooms deserve a special mention with the fabolous jaquzzi bath and divine goodies! the traditional fire in the lounge is pretty cool too! Also dont forget to order one of Janet Moles amazing packed lunches and go on a picnic in the stunning countryside. I was also particularly impressed with the fresh eggs delivered daily to our door along with homemade bread, marmalade and a carafe of fresh milk! Since this trip we have stayed at many luxury resorts around the world but for originality and those special holiday memories, you wont find any where better than the allumbah pocket cottages. ten out of ten!

Stayed here 25 - 27 July on 3 week trip in Queensland. Yungaburra is really pretty, with lots of artistic shops and places to eat. I really enjoyed it here but was beginning to miss the beach. The cottages were very good, clean and well furnished. We self catered so that saved us a little money. would stay again if we came again. It is only a short drive from Cairns so you could come and stay one night if you are pushed for time.
