I stayed here for just one night with my partner a couple of weeks ago. We wish we'd had longer to spend here because it was so relaxing. The themed room had so much attention to detail. We stayed in the Moroccan room and there were DVD's of movies set in Morocco, guide books on the country, a potpourri bag...

Fantastic establishment; fantastic décor; peaceful & quiet; and fantastic hospitality by host "Vicky". A really great place to get away and have a chill-out break from the pressures of day-to-day life in Cairns, work in Cairns, and neighbours in Cairns. Arlyn & Jeff S (Cairns) - September 2014

A wonderful stay the hosts were extremely welcoming right from the first phone call. Our room had ample privacy with lovely natural gardens and farm surrounds. For a relaxed overnight stay away from the big resorts this is the perfect spot. Just off the highway but far enough away to have a feeling of seclusion with no noise but close...
