We had a great stay in Wangetti at Lou's beautiful place. Lou was a warm and welcoming host. Her place was immaculately presented with her own artwork displayed and thought given to little details, like music, books, DVDs, and eco-friendly toiletries. Wangetti is a short drive from Palm Cove and Port Douglas, or relax and enjoy the serenity of Lou's place and lovely outdoor kitchen/dining space. Definitely make time for a walk along Wangetti Beach - stunning!

This is a lovely quiet hideaway. The space for guests is very private with its own entrance. The room beautifully laid out and furnished with a very comfortable bed. You would need a car to make the most of this because you're a bit away from the action but only 15-20 mins drive to Palm Cove and about 25 mins to Port Douglas. The beach was great for walks and Hartley's Crocodile adventures just across the road was great fun. Lou and John looked after us well and we strongly recommend this place to stay.

Wildernest was a luxurious tropical haven, with everything that we could need to make our stay pleasurable. Communication with Lou and John was easy and courteous. After Lou alerted us to the local Iron Man event which conflicted with our original travel plans, we were able to change our itinerary accordingly and so make the best use of our time in the area. The outdoor kitchen, dining, lounge style area is perfect for the tropics: although we stayed there in June when the weather is bit cooler, the outdoor living style suited us well and was very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and we found it convenient to prepare our own meals. A fresh pawpaw from the garden was a delightful treat. Our hosts went the extra mile in providing us the means to clean our hire car. (thank you!) Wonderful hosts, wonderful accommodation - will not hesitate to recommend to friends and family visiting this amazing part of Queensland which itself is such a wonderful treasure!
