Arguably one of Mission Beach’s most unique and prestigious properties nestled in 33 acres of tropical rainforest, gardens and lawns. A winding private rainforest drive takes you into Cottonwood. The property is situated on a rise with panoramic views of the Coral Sea and Dunk Island.

Furnished and decorated in tropical modern style and featuring an architecturally designed open plan living area with honey coloured polished bamboo flooring - Cottonwood will impress. The chef’s kitchen has luxurious European appliances, maple wood bench tops and quality serving accessories for the preparation of that special buffet lunch of locally caught seafood and fresh exotic fruits.

Cottonwood has three double air conditioned bedrooms and wide shady verandas on every side enabling many options to sit and relax and enjoy the various views and changing colours of the landscape.

Idyllic and Spacious....

Whether your stay is a romantic getaway or a family adventure, Cottonwood provides an ambience of casual elegance that invites the outdoors in. A key feature of the home is a sliding 8 metre glass wall that opens onto the veranda and the stunning freeform pool that appears to float out into the sea.

The kitchen windows also open out to a servery, the deck and the outdoor pavilion - the perfect place for sunset drinks and a dinner barbeque.

The master bedroom also features glass walls opening on to the deck and there is a private outdoor “rainforest shower” with stunning ocean views.

Nature in all its beauty surrounds you - wake to the song of birds high in the rainforest canopy - at dusk you may see a family of wallabies feeding on the grass and be lucky enough to see the resident cassowary.

Cottonwood also has a separate studio (not air conditioned) with bathroom to accommodate another 4 guests.

Paradise Found....

Mission Beach in tropical North Queensland is truly one of Australia's most amazing locations. Here World Heritage Rainforest meets the Coral Sea, separated by a 14km strip of golden sand. At Cottonwood you will enjoy 180 degree views of the sea and nearby islands and you're guaranteed the absolute privacy that only such generous acreage allows. Yet, Cottonwood is centrally located, less than 3 minutes to beaches, restaurants, boutique shopping and galleries.

One can also enjoy diving and snorkelling trips to the Barrier Reef, beach drives, fishing, golf and white water rafting at nearby Tully Gorge. Cairns and its many attractions is only 1 and half hours away. So come and discover Mission Beach – the exquisite gem on Queensland’s tropical coast and stay at Cottonwood – your private sanctuary in the rainforest.
