Amazing...Breathtaking...Serene...Luxurious...

There really are no words that can describe how we felt not only upon arriving at this glorious piece of paradise, but also how connected to it we felt as we left. After staying a total of 6 nights and realizing we can't afford to buy the property at this phase of our lives, we sadly realized we must move on to the next part of our travels in Australia. I can only say that if you have read reviews for properties in this area and are considering visiting, you MUST stay here if at all possible.

We flew into Cairns and drove by rental car less than 2 hours south to the quaint town of Mission Beach, where we were promptly greeted by Shane and shown to the property. After being given a detailed run down of our immaculate accommodations for the next week and instructions on how to feed the sea eagles (so cool!), Shane left us with a basket of local fresh fruit and a bottle of red wine, the latter of which was disposed of within the hour (nothing like a bottle of wine to wash away 30 hours of traveling). Shane was a lovely host, has impeccable taste, and even decorated the home with her own artwork, which is unfortunately not for sale, so don't ask ;)

We walked to the beach and into town a couple times while we were there, which is several miles round trip, but has a great walking trail off the beach that is very scenic and mostly shaded. I must warn you, however, that the climb back up the hill to the house is a beast. It should only be attempted if you are in good physical condition. Otherwise, taking your car into town is recommended (5-10 mins). There is a grocery store about 15 mins away and several small restaurants/bars in town if you don't feel like cooking.

This property would easily accommodate 3 couples, but is not recommended for families with children.

My one and only complaint would be the horse flies that liked to nibble on my ankles. Next time I'll bring a fly strip or maybe an industrial strength bug zapper...

To Shane: Your home was amazing and we were honored to be your first guests from the US. ~Jamie & Jennifer T.
