“Peaceful and elegant, with fantastic breakfast”
Reviewed April 22, 2011

We stayed for two nights and liked it very much. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is great, with the freshest eggs you are ever likely to eat. The room was more than big enough. I found the mattress a bit uncomfortable but otherwise enjoyed it very much. The views are spectacular.

Stayed in the Safari room, exceptional views! The place exceeded our expectations, with wonderful hosts. The room was extremely classy and well done. Comfortable, spotless and a wonderful place to relax on the balcony. Extremely private and although you are with other guests you feel you have your own space. The breakfast was excellent and the atmosphere extremely relaxed. Well done Richard and Cheryl, you have certainly got it right and thank you for the upgrade to the 'room with a view', much appreciated.

Room Tip: Best views from rooms with balcony!!

You couldn't hope for a more obliging B&B host and hostess. My mother and I visited Mt Tamborine to attend a family wedding. When I asked if I could have my cousins over for tea, Cheryl did not hesitate to say yes, and set out the tea and biscuits at no charge. My cousins were very pleased with the welcome, and Cheryl and Richard lingered long enough for friendly chats before unobtrusively leaving us to our chitter-chatter.

Cheryl's breakfasts include avocado, which comes from her garden (when in season). And the cooked eggs are from her free range chooks in the backyard (also when in season). Richard and Cheryl take pride in sourcing local ingredients, which are always of excellent quality – so very good and delicious.

I took my partner for a birthday treat and that it was. We stayed in the stunning Daintree Room, clean, bright and modern ajoining the balcony where you can enjoy a wine to watch the sun go down. David, his wife and their little girl were perfect hosts. They provided a delightful and substantial breakfast, a brief chat if you so desired and would then retire leaving us to our own devices. My partner and I have found a great little get away where we can relax and have time out. We will be sure to return. Much better value and atmosphere than a 5star hotel on the gold coast in our opinion and Mt Tamborine is certainly worth a visit!!!

We stayed recently for a two night weekend. Everything you need to get away from it all. Your hostscare there to help, but in seperate quarters so you are left to yourself.

Private room and bathroom, where you will not be disturbed, plus your own deck to take in the tropical canopy and bird life, while being amazed at the distant view.

After a days sight seeing etc. Bring back a bottle of wine and some cheese to unwind and see the sun set. Magic.

Breakfast is a shared long table with a great selection from fruit salad to a full cooked affair with plenty of choice. Don't forget to try the Black Pudding!

We will be going back and have already recommended to other.

Thank you

We had such an amazing time, thanks Cheryl and Richard for making us feel so welcome and waiting on us hand and foot! Great breakfast, beatiful room, breathtaking views and let's not forget the in-room dinner that was the perfect finishing touch to our day. We will definately be back again!

My husband and I stayed at Avocado Sunset to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary. We had never been to a B&B before and hoped that our experience would be a positive one. Well, after having stayed with Richard and Cheryl in their gorgeous home, I must say that even 5 star hotels seem bland compared to the way we were spoiled at Avocado Sunset. The bar is very high now for future B&B's. The rooms was outsanding, large, clean and with every amenity (we stayed in the Daintree room), the bed was comfortable and the service was friendly. The breakfasts were a real treat, and the views were superb. We had such a great time, we really didn't want to leave. We can't recommend the Avocado Sunset highly enough. Thanks Richard and Cheryl for making memories of our weekend special.
