Rob and Uli are very friendly and hospitable hosts. The accommodation is lovely, in a serene and private setting. And I particularly loved the outdoor spa!

All in all a wonderful place to holiday.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for a week in late June. If you are looking for a rainforest experience, thus is the place to be. It is rural enough to experience nature at its best, but local enough that you can enjoy a dinner in port douglas in a matter of minutes. The hosts are great and can provide advice on both the tourist and local spots. I highly recommend the spot and would stay there again in a heart beat.

A peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a very comfortable place with the best owners. We were able to stay with our two dogs and it was so peaceful. There was a beautiful platter of fruit waiting for us in the fridge, plus fresh flowers! So lovely. Thank you Uli and Rob for letting us stay in your beautiful guest house.

Relax in paradise

Really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this place. Situated in the mowbray valley it is away from the crowds of the port Douglas hotel strip. Plenty of space here inside and out with lovely hosts.
