4 Reasons To Stay 4 Days

I offer a better price for longer stays, so you get to enjoy more of the area. 
See the prices section for multiple night rates.

Here’s four reasons I think you’ll enjoy

1. The Great Barrier Reef

The blue jewel in the Far North Queensland crown.

Did you know:
The GBR has 3,000 individual reefs, 900 islands, and stretches for 2,600km around the same size as Japan or Italy. This incredible living system can even be seen from space.
It’s impossible to list all the species that live on the reef so here are some of the most impressive groups that call the reef home.

  • 30 species of whale, dolphin, and porpoise
  • 6 species of turtle
  • 17 species of sea snake
  • More than 1,500 species of fish and incredibly, 10% of the world’s fish species inhabit the Great Barrier Reef Reef trips depart from Port Douglas just a short 20 minute drive away. Visit in June, July and August and you’re likely to see whales on your day out
2. Cape Tribulation and the Daintree rainforest

The green jewel in the far north’s crown.

Did you know:
The Daintree is the oldest continually surviving rainforest in the world. At the ripe old age of 180 million years, this amazing collection of plant and animal life is 10 million years older than the Amazon and has continued to prosper thanks to its continuous high rainfall and humid climate.

The Daintree is the biggest tropical rainforest in Australia, the region stretches across 1,200 square kilometres which is roughly around four times the size of Malta, or it’s 162 times the size of Sydney Harbour.

A large percentage of Australia’s wildlife resides under this rainforest canopy, with 400 rare or threatened species included. Keep an eye out for the likes of the Southern Cassowary, the Tree Kangaroo, and the world’s largest frog, the White Lipped Tree Frog.

Did you know there are more tree species in one hectare of the rainforest than in the entirety of the United Kingdom, with the region home to more than 3,000 different types of plants.

3. Mossman and Mossman Gorge National Park

Did you know:
Mossman Gorge is a 56,000 hectare section of World Heritage Listed Daintree National Park and is best known for its spellbinding beauty and tree-clad mountains which rise sharply from the banks of the Mossman river.

More than 500 species of native plants, 430 species of birds, 18 species of reptiles, 12 species of amphibians and several species of fresh water fish call the gorge home.

But that’s not all that’s on offer here in Mossman, there’s the Australian chocolate farm tour, bird watching, Shannonvale tropical fruit winery, Janbal art gallery, Kuku Yalangi cultural tours and River drifts and stand up paddle boarding on the Mossman river.

4: Port Douglas

So much to do here and just a short 20 minute drive from the bed and breakfast, cafes, restaurants, flagstaff hill walk, shops, swimming at the beach, fishing, sunsets at stinger park

Your Host

I started our bed and breakfast, in our tree top home, in 1997.
The property is covered in lush tropical rainforest and boasts views across the valley to Daintree National Park.
I am a keen garden, and bird watcher and enjoy diving/snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.
I grow a large selection of tropical fruit, like mango, passion fruit, papaya, pineapple & dragon fruit and I keep 8 bee hives which produce delicious honey.

How I look at life: 

  • I love to share our home with travelers from all over the world. 
  • I try to do what I can to keep our environment healthy. 
  • There is air-conditioning in the bedrooms and I ask you to use them wisely. 
  • I don’t change your towels every day and I do not iron your linen. 
  • There are water saving devices in the bathrooms and I line dry our laundry when ever possible. 
  • I recycle what I can and ask you to do the same whilst staying here. 
  • There is off peak power and energy efficient lighting. 
  • I try to keep our carbon footprint as small as possible. 
  • I have solar power and I am careful not to waste it.
