“Relaxing, tranquil, perfect”
Reviewed September 17, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

This was the holiday house we were looking for, we were on a family holiday after getting married so were looking for something a bit special where we could relax. We felt like we were staying in a luxury resort while having the privacy of being in our own house. It was such a peaceful stay. A few meters away from the beach in a very quiet street. We stayed in September and found the house did not require aircon (which is there if needed) due to the well designed cooling features. We were able to have all the windows open and enjoy the wonderful sounds of the birds and wildlife night and day. The pool is saltwater and left you feeling refreshed, we were pleased that the pool sat under a fair amount of shade in the afternoon. The beds were very comfortable and we all slept soundly during our stay. The house was incredibly clean and was cleaned mid stay as we were there for 10 days. The host is very friendly and passionate about the area and provided a wealth of information. Every room was beautifully presented and exceptionally maintained. The hosts have filled the house with everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it, while the photos show it off, it is so much better in real life and had more space than I had expected

“Immaculate cottage in great location”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My wife and I just completed a 6 night stay at Reef Cottage. We now understand why previous reviews have been so good. This home away from home is perfectly furnished and equipped and reflects Mei’s good taste and meticulous attention to detail. The location is perfect for exploring the area, spending time on the nearby beach or just hanging out on the property. Be sure to take advantage of Mei’s wealth of information about the area. Two of her specific recommendations, Mojo’s Restaurant and Solar Whisper Wildlife Cruise are highlights of our stay in Australia.

This was an amazing hosting experience for us as we found kindred passion for nature and shared similar taste in music as well. We are so glad you and your wife enjoyed our home and used every opportunity to visit the surrounding rainforest and rivers. Thank you for looking after our holiday house so well. Mei loved watching that very interesting slide show of wildlife from your travels and we both will miss you.

“Beautiful luxurious cottage”

Thankyou Mei, we all enjoyed our 5 night stay in your beautiful cottage on Wonga Beach. Perfect location to explore the Daintree and Mossman, a very beautiful and fascinating part of Australia. Wonga Beach itself was just amazing, so quiet and secluded, it was almost like having your own private beach in paradise and just a stones throw from the cottage. The cottage was absolutely spotless and so comfortable, great kitchen to cook meals and loved using the barbecue at night and sitting out listening to the wildlife. When we first arrived it was incredibly hot outisde and the pool was a saviour, in fact I don't think there was a day we didn't jump in. Once again thankyou, we hope to return again!

Reef cottage is perfectly and thoroughly appointed with all things big and small.
Most important was a comfortable bed and pillows covered in soft white linen plus the rooms are air conditioned. Kitchen has everything laid out so its easy to find utensils , dishes, glsses etc to cook up a great meal. Plenty of special spots to relax ...round the pool, on the back deck, the front sun room, loungeroom or the quaint sitting room off the master bedroom. A large selection of books dvd's, cd's and information literature on local attractions plus an ipad full of info on flora and fauna.
The cottage is spotlessly clean and comfortable. Enjoy your stay!

We really loved our stay over Christmas at Reef Cottage and we found it to be a comfotable, functional, peaceful and exquisitely decorated property with such easy access to the beach. All the sights are very close by (Daintree, Cape Trib, Port Douglas) and Mei, our host, was most helpful in providing info on where all the interesting things to see and do are and we ended up going on a fabulous fruit tasting at Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm thanks to this info! Love love loved it! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
