“Tranquil retreat”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

With our two Jack Russell Terriers, we stayed at Sunrise Retreat's Cottage No. 2 for more than two weeks. Uli and Rob are wonderful hosts and couldn't do enough to make us feel at home. The cottage is thoughtfully equipped and very comfortable inside but perhaps the best feature is the huge verandah where we spent much of our time and ate all our meals to the sound of beautiful birdcalls. The dawn chorus of birds at Sunrise Retreat is a delight and we were lucky enough to see Double-eyed fig-parrots feeding in the canopy at eye level next to the verandah - a special treat for a birder like me. Make sure you take advantage of the infinity pool with its stunning view across to the Coral Sea. It's hard to believe that such a tranquil setting is only 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Port Douglas.

We've just spent 5 nights in guest house 1 and have left feeling very relaxed. It was everything we expected, the pictures were not at all misleading. The view from the pool is fantastic. Uli was extremely helpful in terms of what to do and booking tours for us, we were not disappointed in anything that Uli recommended. Only 1 minor issue and that is Wifi in the guesthouse, but for us not a major issue as weren't on holiday to check emails etc. So if you are looking to relax and unwind this is the place for you

Our experience at Rob and Uli's retreat was nothing short of an amazing and truly regenerative stay. We stayed in cabin 1 and from the moment we first walked in,we could feel the love and care that they had put into building the cabin and making their guests feel welcome. That love, care and dedication was present through out our entire stay with them allowing us the space to feel we were in our own home whist being there to support and assist us with our needs. Thank you Rob and Uli and we hope to return one day!
