For more detail on the Cloud 9 layout, check out the Upstairs and Downstairs Floor Plans in the photo gallery.

You will be 'floating on air' at Cloud 9 - perched between the peak of Eagle Heights and the scarp of Tamborine Mountain. Cloud 9 is ideally located on the north-east edge of the mountain escarpment in a quiet, end-of-court position, bordering a 300 hectare environmental preserve. It's an energetic walk to the popular Botanic Gardens or a 3-minute drive to the lively tourist shops, restaurants, cafes and wineries of Gallery Walk. You should visit the nearby heritage museum and stroll through the ancient rainforest of MacDonald National Park and Curtis Falls. Or adventure further with the kids to the Glow Worm Caves, Skywalk, Thunderbird Park and the Cedar Creek rock pools.

You can use the telescope to explore the ocean horizon from Jumpinpin to Main Beach, or survey the hinterland valleys of Wongawallan to the wetlands of Coombabah. There are vivid panoramas both day and night. Wake to the colours of the rising sun and see rainbows paint the local hillsides, or watch the full moon rise over the Pacific and stargaze onto a sparkling night sky. If lucky, you could catch nature's fireworks display with a lightning storm at sea or even that rare phenomena - the 'Buddha's Halo'. The upstairs bedrooms and living rooms all enjoy the uninterrupted ocean and hinterland views, with walls of glass opening to the eastern and northern verandahs. And there are 90 square metres of decks to bring the outdoors in.

This eco-friendly holiday house borders the ecologically sensitive headwaters of Tamborine Creek. Accordingly, Cloud 9 minimises its environmental footprint with: low impact building materials; natural, dry-stone retaining walls; terraced gardens; organic flower beds, herbs and fruit trees; sensitive cleaning goods; gas hot water, cooking and heating; 2 fully filtered rainwater tanks (1 for firefighting at 10,000 litre, and the other at 45,000 litre for drinking, cooking and showering); plus onsite waste management. As a contemporary Queenslander, Cloud 9 also minimises its carbon footprint with an effective range of passive heating and cooling techniques, including: the ideal east, north-east orientation; hillside construction; slab on ground for thermal mass; 2 storeys with a half-open ground-level for exterior air movement; sensible floor plan and room design; extensive verandahs for shading and outdoor living; glass sliding doors and appropriate glazing; fans and roof turbines for interior air circulation; floor to wall to ceiling insulation; plus rock retaining walls and tree planting for protection and breezes.

Cloud 9 is wired for the electronic comforts and furnished throughout with quality appointments. Catch a blu ray DVD on the 130cm (51 inch) Samsung smart TV in the media room, listen to your iPod/iPhone (or one of our CDs) on the Pioneer sound system in the lounge room, or watch TV downstairs on the other flat-screen. Sorry no WiFi, but good 3G/4G mobile coverage - such as Telstra & Optus - for your smart phone or tablet. You can research the local area, play a board game with the kids and plan your next adventures around the big family dining table. Or chat with friends on the plush leather couches while the cooks prepare dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. Then again, you could simply open the complimentary bottle of wine and luxuriate in the 20 jet spa bath, or check out the mini-library and relax out on the Balinese day bed. And finally, you should all get a good night's sleep with Cloud 9's white linen and her premium pillows, doonas and pillow-top mattresses.

There is all-year, outdoor dining for 10 on the viewing deck, with an undercover BBQ - great for entertaining with family and friends. Look out over the sub-tropical eucalypt forest that spills down the mountainside, identify some of the many rare birds, and use the telescope to spot more reclusive wildlife. Then explore the charming Cloud 9 garden, with its majestic gum tree ... pathways and hedge rows ... roses and rainforest ... fruit trees and a herb patch. See if you and the kids can find the Cheshire Cat nesting box, the masked 'Spirit of the Tree Ferns', the hidden fairy door, the woodpecker doorknocker or the White Rabbit and friends. And for our wedding guests, there are several garden 'rooms' to reveal and a number of colourful props to discover for those special pre-wedding photos.

Cloud 9 is enchanting in all seasons as there are no real extremes in temperature on the mountain. Be captivated by the spring mists as they rise through the valleys below, or welcome the mountain cool in summer with ocean breezes and ceiling fans in every room. Delight in the ever-changing colours of autumn, or enjoy the crystal clear days and nights of winter as you cozy up around the gas log fire. This relaxing country home is picture perfect for your stylish wedding group accommodation, fun getaway with friends, ultra-comfortable family holiday or rewarding workplace retreat.

OUR FOCUS: Cloud 9 is owner-managed and guest-focussed. To help maintain our reputation for top-quality holiday accommodation and country hospitality: (a) we encourage guest feedback, ratings and reviews; (b) we don't use zoom lenses to advertise our views; and (c) we do use the secure and reliable Stayz system for email, bookings and payments. You can rely on Cloud 9.

Tamborine Mountain - The Green Behind the Gold Coast

Tamborine Mountain is actually a remnant volcanic plateau about 8 km long, 4 km wide and some 550 metres above sea level. It is lofted above the hinterland between the Pacific Ocean and the Great Dividing Range. With its stunning natural environment, extensive choice of accommodation plus multiple venues, galleries and restaurants, Tamborine Mountain is a holiday mecca and the foremost wedding destination in south-east Queensland. Cloud 9 in turn has been specially designed with wedding groups and other guests in mind and has become one of the mountain's best-liked holiday houses.

The 3 suburbs on Tamborine Mountain are Eagle Heights to the north, North Tamborine in the middle and Mount Tamborine to the south. The major attractions of the Botanic Gardens, Gallery Walk, the Heritage Museum, Curtis Falls, MacDonald National Park and Palm Grove National Park are in Eagle Heights. Cloud 9 directly overlooks the Eagle Heights escarpment and is a minute's drive to the Botanic Gardens, 3 minutes to the restaurants, shops and galleries of Gallery Walk (on Long Road), 5 - 10 minutes to the rainforest, waterfalls and nature walks of the 9 National Parks, 30 minutes to the theme park wonderlands, 35 minutes to the Gold Coast beaches, 55 minutes to the Gold Coast airport and an hour to downtown Brisbane (enlarge Google Map at top right for details).

Tamborine Mountain is an island in the sky, surrounded by protected rainforest and eucalypts, home to around 7000 people and a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna. Birdwatchers and photographers will appreciate the variety of some very rare species. Inquisitive lorikeets, honeyeaters and fairy wrens regularly visit the Cloud 9 gardens. Then cockatoos and king parrots, bowerbirds and wedgetails may fly overhead. Shy whipbirds and lyrebirds can be heard from afar, and the sooty owls and tawny frogmouth come out after dark. Meanwhile, elusive platypuses swim in the clear mountain creeks, sleepy koalas live among the gum trees and at night the glow worms glow in the forest caves.

A rainforest getaway is a breath of fresh air for body and spirit. And over the years, the embracing beauty of Tamborine Mountain has attracted many authors, academics, artists, artisans and adventurers. Now, you can stay at Cloud 9 and plan your own eco-adventures. There is a local producer's market every Sunday from 8.00 am at the Showgrounds with the main farmer's markets every second Sunday of the month (at the Showgrounds) and every last Sunday of the month (opposite the State School). Plus original gifts and mementos can be purchased at the many galleries and antique shops across the mountain. Also, check out below some other recommended activities on the mountain.

PLEASE NOTE: Cloud 9 employs a part-time professional gardener, cleaner and launderer, and provides regular income for several other local service providers. To help maintain Cloud 9 as a valued member of the Tamborine Mountain community, there are 3 reminders: (1) RESPECT the NEIGHBOURS; (2) NO FUNCTIONS or PARTIES; and (3) NO PETS.

Cloud 9 Tamborine Mountain is rated 4.9688 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Relaxation, Comfort, stunning location Cloud 9 delivers everything that is published in the offer. The home is well maintained, stocked with many extras to make the stay as relaxing and convenient as possible. The deck is really spacious and ideal to sit back with a quiet drink, enjoy a BBQ and be entertained by the kookaburras and the stunning view. In the midst of winter it was positioned to capture the sun. The facilities were so good we ended up staying in all weekend and making the most of the position and amenities. Great venue for a friends or family get together with an owner who is really customer focused and keeps the property in tip top shape. Bond returned very quickly. Would absolutely stay there again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delightful Home in a Spectacular Location! CLOUD 9 exceeded our expectations, which were already high after reading the online guestbook! Our family (mostly from Sydney), stayed in CLOUD 9 while attending our niece’s wedding on the Mountain. We agree wholeheartedly with previous reviews; great location/views; spacious, clean, well appointed/stocked home with lovely gardens and a very helpful owner who returned our bond promptly! The sunrises were breathtakingly beautiful and I recommend to future guests that at least one morning, they wake up an hour before sunrise to watch it arrive! An early morning walk is also a must, to hear the wonderful bird calls/songs. We loved the chess set, cards/board games and using the telescope. It was especially nice to see the Cheshire Cat through the telescope! The gardens were lovely/fun to explore & the fluffy toy birds inside CLOUD 9 that made their bird sounds when squeezed were a delightful surprise lol :)) We would love to return to CLOUD 9 for another holiday! THANKS Murray & family, Anne.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic property, with stunning outlook Had a weekend here for my daughter's wedding. Had guests from overseas who were suitably impressed. Stunning outlook, well presented and very clean. In a very quiet location, and the local wildlife made several guest appearances of their own. Run by a motivated property owner/agent who clearly wants you to enjoy the experience. Bond was returned promptly. I have only positive thing to say about this property.
