“The Mulgrave River was an idyllic setting for an Air BnB. Breath-taking views surround you from every room. To top it off, Yvette was an incredible host. Gracious, generous, kind, and knowledgeable with an acuity for meeting the needs of people away from home. Thoughtful touches abound, including little nightlights to guide you on your midnight trip to the toilet. She had a wealth of knowledge about the area and provided an excellent itinerary for our family. To name just a few easy highlights, we visited Milla Milla Falls, Zillie Falls, Babinda Boulders, Josephine Falls and the Curtain Fig Tree on our drive through the Tablelands. We also saw Lake Eacham, which has a 1.5 km Childrens Walk and a longer 3 km walk around the lake. All sights are world-class destinations worthy of great expense, yet are free to enjoy. We planned to do the Frankland Island snorkeling cruise, which is a 5-minute walk from the Mulgrave River Boat House. Highly recommend the snorkeling tour...and you receive a discount for mentioning Yvettes place! It was pouring rain the day we went for our trip and Yvette very kindly drove to pick us up! Her dear husband Rick also drove to meet us with our son’s forgotten jacket. Truly salt of the earth kind of people. We are so grateful for our experience! Thank you Yvette and Rick! Our 8-year old says “They are really nice and if you have problems they’ll help you.” Truer words never spoken. :)”

“My partner and I had the most amazing stay at Naomis. We spent New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and the following day at the beautiful Wild Ginger Retreat. The space itself is incredible, so romantic and secluded. Apart from the amazing retreat itself the private rainforest is gorgeous, we went swimming in the two spots recommended every day. We actually hardly left the wild ginger retreat while we were there except to visit Babinda to go to the bakery. The drive from Cairns to Bellenden Ker was beautiful. We can’t recommend this place enough, it would be great for a honeymoon destination as it is so secluded and romantic. Thanks Naomi for having us, we hope to return in the future and we have recommended it to al our friends xx”

“We had a great stay at Sallyanne & Phil's place. Communication was quick and efficient, the room and rest of the house were sparkling clean, and the thoughtful touches throughout the room and house were much appreciated. The AC in the room worked well and the ceiling fan also helps to keep the heat at bay. The large deck adjacent to the room is great to have your breakfast in the morning while looking at the lush garden. We also had our own kitchenette with kettle, microwave, and fridge to prepare our complimentary breakfast of cereals, bread, milk, and yogurt. Parking was off-street right next to the house and wifi was reliable and fast. And although the bathroom and toilet weren't on-suite, they were huge and for our exclusive use. We also enjoyed all the little amenities such as toiletries, nuts, and fruits. An excellent base for our exploration of the Atherton Tablelands!”
