About Suzette Pelt
We are long term marine-tourism business owners, now semi-retired and enjoying sailing around the world, in past years from Alaska to the Antarctic and continuing a life of adventuring. We love sharing our 6 acres of Land for wildlife property with guests. And letting you know about the best things to do around the Whitsunday region.
Why Suzette Pelt chose Whitsundays Region
This cottage was an early Tiny House! Home to quite a large family, and quite basic (no bathroom in the old days!) rather than see the cottage destroyed, we opted to move it from the cane farm to our property and spend a year completely restoring it, from top to bottom. Adding a bathroom (shower with a twist on the classic bush shower!) and using the original roofing materials to create a modern kitchen it is truly a local classic and a perfect getaway spot.

The place was so cute and very clean, definitely a place to be if you want to relax. Everything is close by and love the nature of the place and the property manager was amazing to me, so glad I met her!
Quiet countty retreat
A lovingly restored cottage in a quiet rural setting close to amenities and a short drive from the bustle of Airlie Beach. A great spot from where to explore the Whitsunday Coast.
Thanks for your lovely review, Jill. It was a pleasure having you to stay. Look forward to the next time :)
What a gem.
Cute little quiet retreat space. So close to Airlie Beach...has everything needed. Thanks so much
Whitsundays without the hubbub
If you appreciate opportunities to experience something different, then the Cane Cutter’s Cottage is for you. It’s nestled in the privacy of the Pelt’s property and its central location makes it easy to explore the Oceanside or inland. The Pelt’s are experienced and consummate hosts, ready to assist if required or give you space to enjoy their piece of Queensland paradise.
Suzette and Adrian's cottage is delightful. It has been painstakingly restored to provide a taste of living in a bygone era while enjoying all the modern comforts. The cottage is a quiet and beautiful retreat only a short drive to Cannonvale and Airlie Beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to stay again when we next visit the Whitsundays.
Thank you Marcia, we loved having you stay with us. So glad you enjoyed everything and would love to have you visit again when next in the Whitsundays. Hope you survived the huge rainfall after getting home? We were thinking of you. Best regards Suzette & Adrian
Fabulous cottage close to Airlie beach
We had a wonderful 2 night stay at Cane Cutters Cottage but wish that it could have been longer.
From the beginning communication with Suzette was easy and we were provided with information for an easy and straightforward arrival. Some lovely little touches on arrival which were much appreciated.
The cottage is absolutely gorgeous, beautifully decorated and so comfortable. The location was perfect-a short drive from Airlie beach but in its own peaceful and tranquil location. We decided to stay in and cook both nights because it is such a beautiful and relaxing place to spend time.
I would definitely recommend staying here and we would love to return for another visit.
Thank you for such a great stay.
Thank you Polly for such a lovely review, so glad you enjoyed the Cottage and its location. Would love to see you back too! Warmest regards, Suzette & Adrian
The Cane Cutters Cottage is located in a quiet neighborhood, next to rainforest and with daily visits by wallabies and birds. It has its own private driveway, sea glimpses through forest and lush surroundings. Less than 2 minutes away is the main shopping centre and in about 5 minutes you can be in the busy tourist village of Airlie Beach. Do what the locals do, and take the drive just a little further down the road from the Cottage to enjoy sundowners (or a meal?) at fabulous new Northerlies on the beach. It's where we go for island views and to watch the boats returning from a day sailing and the twinkling lights come on in Airlie Beach across the water.
A short drive away is one of Australia's oldest rainforests - Conway National Park with a selection of walking trails, from short hr, to a 3 hr circuit.
