“shocking”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

shocking. old facilities. felt like a stay in a bungalow for an exclusive rate. embarassing. our whole honeymoon was ruined and i had to take my wife away early as she couldnt believe
how bad it was. yes the hosts are fine if you like hosts to sticky beak every few minutes. we had no privacy with constant phone calls nagging us to try here or try there for tourist spots.

I am sorry to read that you had a disappointing honeymoon.
I believe that you have never been a guest with Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat as we only have one couple who stay at a time to offer 100% privacy, we have never had a guest check out one day early, we also have had only one couple that were on their honeymoon last November who left beautiful comments in our guest book .

The Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat is paradise found. To experience and be surrounded by nature in its natural beauty and then be pampered by a luxurious villa with all the latest inclusions is the ultimate gift anyone could share in a lifetime. My business allows me to travel to nature wonderlands and record nature sounds and film nature in its finest moments. For couples this is also a chance to share love and enjoy the private villa and all amenities with no other contact to totally share those precious moments. I will always return to Misty Mountain to bond with nature as only one can in this magical retreat, Ken Davis International Composer and Filmaker

I stayed at the amazing Misty Mountains Retreat a few weeks ago whilst in Cairns & it was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. Every morning I'd wake up to the sound of nature, & take part in all the retreat has to offer. The owners, Sharon & Gene, were so accommodating to my flight times, dietary requirements & tailored a unique & accommodating experience. It was truly wonderful to be centred in the stunning rainforest & to rejuvenate. I will most definitely return upon my next visit to Cairns.

Being locals to Tropical North Queensland, we could not believe we had never heard of this tropical paradise.. After a year of illness, we just wanted some quality alone down time.. Viola your wish is our command!! Thats exactly what we got.. The place is amazing, beautiful and tranquil.. You can do as much or as little as you wish.. Sharon and Gene have put in amazing efforts and just all the little things make this a really special magical experience.. We as locals are used to the surrounds but both commented that we found the property breathtaking and said visitors that had never experienced the tropics would find it truly magical.. We are so grateful we came accross this peace of paradise at short notice and were lucky enough to experience it.. Thank you Sharon and Gene for sharing your paradise with others.. Definately be back..

Just got back from whisking my partner away from the hustle and bustle of the big smoke for a "babymoon" and couldn't have chosen a better place to unwind and get lost in nature with one another....

Feeling lost in the middle of the rainforest with all the creature comforts plus endless adventures to embark upon it was the perfect mix of relaxation and recreation. We were never lost for things to do, swims in the freshwater creek in the morning, breakfast by the pool, walking tracks, bike rides, bbq's under the stars, croquet on the lawn, tropical flower and fruit foraging, exploring, afternoon siesta's in the swinging chair, a night of fun in the glass bar, riding in the buggies in the tropical rain...we had so much fun!

A special thank you to Sharon for accommodating our needs and helping out with a late-night transfer due to delayed flights and of course for all her great suggestions to make things both personal and romantic (catered candlelit dinner feast under the canopy of a giant fig tree) it really was perfect.

Oh and not to forget a great mid-way stop before we hopped over to Bedarra Island for some time by the sea...

Highly recommended!!!

Hey Sharon,

Just wanted to say that we all enjoyed ourselves during our stay at Misty Mountains on 19th till 22nd March 2013.
It was the perfect get away from civilization. We had alot of fun using the glass bar, playing in the pool, going down to the creek having a BBQ. Had fun riding around in the buggies and visiting the wild life. The three nights was just not enough, we did not get a chance to see everything.

Thank you to the team and thank you Sharon for your promptness, for your hospitality and for coming to see us at 6am to wish us farewell (hope the animals enjoyed the left over food).
I will definitely be contacting you soon to organise another holiday but this time just for me and my partner at one of your Bedarra properties.

Kind regards,
Helen

Room Tip: The Blue Lagoon villa is gorgeous!

MIsty Mountains was the perfect spot to relax and unwind. We loved lazing by our private pool, our morning dips and the massage by the tranquil creek. It was an unexpected delight to stay there. We really enjoyed our night-time BBQ by the creek with the fire flies and wildlife followed by a taste of the nightlife in the fully decked out bar. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Sharon and Gene. They were always helpful and very friendly but never intrusive with our privacy. The house is perfect and the setting is truly beautiful and romantic. East Bedarra will be our next holiday location!
