On our first-ever trip to Far North Queensland as a family get-together for July-August 2015, we were very fortunate to locate this holiday house via Tripadvisor – then with the online assistance of helpful owners Kerry and Mark, it became central to our planning of a wonderfully successful three week experience for our family.
The comfortable five-bedroom design, open, airy and spacious Spanish-style living and relaxing areas of the house, and the well equipped kitchen and laundry were ideal for all our needs, plus an outdoor dining area and garden, set in leafy and peaceful surrounds; an endless beach a few metres beyond the gate, fringed with dense tropical vegetation....
(Note that like all North Queensland beaches there are warnings about estuarine crocodiles to discourage swimming – we saw none - just some wonderful birds, butterflies and scenery - but be alert – and the pool at the house is excellent.)
We particularly liked the tranquil quiet, the forest setting and self-catering –just 15 minutes to an excellent supermarket and shopping centre and cafes plus other places of interest in the local town of Mossman (near the house a local service station with small convenience story, and a pharmacy).
It is also an ideal base for exploring other places of outstanding interest on day trips – the Daintree River and its cruises a few minutes’ drive northward, plus the Car Ferry across the river that opens up the unique rainforest beyond via the scenic road to Cape Tribulation, dotted with places to visit, explore and dine; also southward about 30 minutes to lively Port Douglas tourist centre and excursions to the Great Barrier Reef…
Great find - hard to leave – hope to return sometime.
