“Quality in spades...”
Reviewed 5 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I have traveled extensively around the world, and have been lucky to stay at some of the best premium hotels and B&Bs, so we're a bit sensitive to quality gaps -- between what's advertised and what's delivered. When we booked Wanggulay for a week in June, we expected a lot, and we got a lot.

Simply put, this is probably the best place we've stayed in Australia -- we were struck by incredible attention to detail -- from the preparation, to the architecture, the furnishings, the private grounds, and the lighting. It was like we were staying in someone's home, not a rental.

For 3 of the nights we were there, we had our three adult children and their partners stay with us. The house allowed for large meals as well as enough private spaces to let everyone do their own thing if they wanted to.

I would highly recommend this place.

“Amazing stay in Wanggulay”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stunning property! Very large, spacious and decorated with an amazing sense of style.
My family, who visited from overseas, claimed that they had no idea such beautiful places even exist!
We would love to be back as soon as we can! Thank you for having us :)

So glad your family from overseas were so impressed with Wanggulay and it's rainforest setting. You definitely get the feeling you are suspended in the treetops with all the sights and sounds of the rainforest.
Love to have you stay again for your next family reunion.

“Amazing Family Holiday”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 for a stay in January 2014

For a busy Sydney living family Wanggulay was a much needed holiday for our family of 5.
With such a big Holiday house there a lot of happy holiday lovers our 16 yr old Daughter likes to have her own space and is usually on Facebook etc but managed to spend some time with us as a family.
Then our other Daughter 11yr old and our son 9yr old both love to explore so having the rainforest at your back door was great we had some great times exploring with the kids.
And with all cairns attractions we were central to everything.
We would recommend Wanggulay to anyone and can't wait for our next visit.

Hello and great to hear your kids found plenty to keep them amused in the rainforest; trips to local waterholes, exploring Cairns or at home at Wanggulay relaxing on the balcony, swimming in the heated infinity edge pool or a round of table tennis.
Look forward to having you stay again.

“We did not want to leave.”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I have to admit that I was skeptical looking at the fantastic photos on the internet, no telling when they were taken and if they were a true representation of the property. But from the time we walked in the door to the time we reluctantly drug out suitcases back out to the car we were exactly where we wanted to be for a vacation of a life time. The home is beautifully appointed and feels like a warm and welcoming home. We did not get in as much sightseeing as as we had planned because we wanted to stay at the house. When I woke up the first morning and could see the rain forest out my window and hear the creek running down the side of the house I knew we had made the right choice. The parrot that sat in the tree outside the kitchen window welcomed us each morning. The pool was very relaxing. It was the best accommodations I have had the pleasure to stay in. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating with our special requests.

Wow! We are blown away by your review. We loved hosting your group from the US; we feel like we have achieved our mission of giving you the holiday of a lifetime in world heritage rainforest right outside your window complete with butterflies and birdlife.
