I stayed here with my sister for 3 nights. Pam and John were extremely welcoming and friendly, and full of excellent advice. The view from their house is stunning, and breakfasts absolutely divine- fruit, pancakes, coffee, so many courses! I would recommend this as a place to stay away from it all, yet only 20 mins from Port Douglas.

Beyond expectation, great service and support from Pam and John, they put us back on track again, valuable informaton about region, lovely room, good beds and bathroom. To catch our flight to Ayers Rock from Cairns we had to leave early, many thanks for the picknick basket we found in our room, a place worth to stay a few days... More

Marae is the most fantastic place I've ever stayed in. The hosts Pam and John really make the place special, being welcoming, charming and very conversational. The house is pretty special too - the perfect design for tropical living with nary a pane of glass in sight but with wrap-around wooden shutters that open straight out to the tropical air.... More

The hosts, Pam and John, are marvelous, witty, charming, delightful, and best of all they live in paradise as John so aptly describes it. And he’s totally right. The house is wonderful and the two rooms very comfortable, spacious, and well appointed. The view each morning at breakfast – delicious, by the way – is breathtaking. You have to have... More

Marae is a wonderful place to stay in the Port Douglas/Mossman area. It is about 5 miles out of town so you need a car and must value a peaceful, natural scene over walking out your hotel door to a restaurant. The setting is beautiful - you eat a fabulous breakfast on a porch with views to the rain forest... More

This was our first trip to Australia. We focused on Queensland, but weren't sure what to do (so much to see and how to distill it down to a few great experiences). Pam and John had wonderful suggestions for our precious few days we had there. We packed a lot in and had a great time getting to know them... More

In the middle of the calm nature, this wonderful couple will make your dreams of both relaxing and adventurous holidays come true. No matter if you would like to... More

Marae... "Elysium", resting place of the Gods, which is exactly what this beautiful retreat feels like. Tucked away in the hills of Mossman, , Marae is surrounded by bushland... Peaceful and quiet, except for the sounds of a multitude of various bird calls but close to the vibrant town of Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge and the Daintree forest. Hosts, Pam... More

Where do we even begin? Marae was the perfect choice for our stay in the Port Douglas area. It is close enough to all of the action, but tucked away in beautiful Mossman where the sights and sounds make you feel as though you are in a tropical paradise. And you are! Pam and John were fabulous hosts. They were... More
