When we stepped into Cloud 9, we felt like we had hit the jackpot. The views are amazing and the only neighbours are wildlife as far as you can see. Gerry, the host, built the place himself and the pride he took in his work really shows. What's more Gerry was very generous with his time, helping us understand all the great things to do in the area and even coming with us on some of our adventures. That local knowledge was invaluable. We used Cloud 9 as our base and did day-trips to fill our schedule. Each day we agreed that we wanted to get back earlier because coming home was something else to look forward to. Even though we were busy, I could imagine just staying on site and not venturing out because it's such a nice place to relax. Thanks very much to Gerry for all the effort and such a warm welcome. It makes the difference!

Cloud 9 was absolutely spectacular. My wife and I decided to look for some nice private/ self contained accomodation after a week in a campervan and we were lucky enough to find this place in the heart of the Daintree! The views are amazing, the house itself is great, the ammenities (huge deck, kitchen, bathrooms etc) were all top notch and our host Gerry was an absolute legend! Gerry has built this place himself. He has a lot of local knowledge (wildlife, places to go), he is a very helpful host and has some great stories! Cloud 9 is highly recommended by my wife and I - and we've stayed in hundreds of places around the world. If you're looking for awesome views of the Daintree, privacy and an amazing house - this is it.

Originally from England I trained as a tradesman working with the Cooper, Wheelwright, patternmaker, Carpenter, Joiner, Woodturner and French Polisher.
On completion of my apprenticeship my adventurous nature took control and having experienced many European countries, decided to look further afield and eventually emigrated to Australia.

Cloud 9 is my home and a luxury private retreat catering to adult families,honeymoon couples, business women's relaxation weekends and small informal corporate gatherings.
Its been a long and interesting journey since leaving British soil and having visited literally dozens of countries over the years observing local culture, exotic fruits, alternative cuisine, architecture, dance, dress codes, trade practices, fishing methods, survival technique and the peculiarities of hospitality, I now consider myself capable of interesting discussion with guests from all points of the compass.

I always welcome opportunity to play tour guide in any part of Queensland, particularly the region around Daintree with its Barrier Reef, Rainforests, prolific birdlife, crocodiles, excellent fishing and unique botanical species.
If you enjoy nature, peace and tranquillity, local information and total privacy with your nearest visible neighbours over two Kilometres away…………
Call me, your going to love it up here on Cloud 9.
