The space

We are so proud of our little shack and look forward to sharing it with you.
We recommend that you come by car or bike as we are located 10 minutes from the nearest town of Mossman. Toaster, kettle tea, coffee, microwave and fridge supplied.

Guest access

The shack has its own entrance and is away from the main house. We would love to help you enjoy our beautiful area and answer any questions.
Although there isn't a pool we have the most beautiful swimming hole a short walk away. There are no crocodiles in this area :)

Interaction with guests

We love the area we live in and look forward to helping you explore it. We have lived her for over 20 years and will happily advise you on great places to visit and experience while you are here.

The neighbourhood

Shannonvale is located in a valley where most homes are 3-10 acre lots. It is a very quiet rural area where you can see various wildlife depending of the time of year, jabiru's, wallabies and our family chooks are regular visitors.

Getting around

Please note there is no public transport in the area.

Other things to note

Shannonvale is a popular cyclist route and a favourite with bird watchers.
There is a Tropical winery in the Shannonvale valley and a cocoa farm. We are located less than 1 hour from the tablelands and the Daintree Ferry and 15 minutes from Port Douglas. We have a beautiful yoga teacher in the valley who would happily give private classes.

Great location for mossman area/port douglas. Not far off the beaten track yet tranqill and secluded. Lovely hosts. We didn't want to leave. Its a beautiful room to stay in.

Everything was perfect. Lovely place, very clean and calm, and you will enjoy hearing the sounds of the forest while you're sleeping. Beautiful! The only negative point is that I was not able to catch the wifi network from the cabin, but that's also a good occasion to disconnect for a while and you can reach the network if you move towards the swimming pool :) Thanks for your warm welcome Elissa. I highly recommend this place if you plan to visit Port Douglas or the Mossman Gorge!

Elissa's place was a perfect base to explore the surrounding area. Tucked away near the mountains, the views were spectacular and everything about the little studio was as described. Perfectly self-contained and comfortable.

Beautiful shack in a great location, Elissa was away during our stay, but made sure we were able to find it easily. The shack is decorated so beautifully and I loved the feel of the place and sitting out the back watching the chickens :) It's location is great, a short drive from Mossman and Port Douglas. I would recommend this place to anyone :)
