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 an environmental preserve. It's a brisk 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 closer in.

This eco-friendly holiday house is 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. Plus good mobile coverage - such as Telstra & Optus - for your smart phone or tablet.

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.

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 'Spirit of the Tree Ferns', the secret fairy door, 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 a fun getaway with friends, ultra-comfortable family holiday, stylish wedding group accommodation 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 rest assured on dreamy Cloud 9.

Tamborine Mountain - The Green Behind the Gold Coast

Cloud 9 is a scenic, 35-minute drive to the world-class beaches of the Gold Coast, 30 minutes to the theme park wonderlands, 1 hour to the Gold Coast airport, 1 hour to metropolitan Brisbane - and a world away from the everyday. A rainforest getaway on Tamborine Mountain is a breath of fresh air for body and spirit.

The three 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 Gallery Walk, the Botanic Gardens, the Heritage Museum, Curtis Falls, MacDonald National Park, Palm Grove National Park, plus Cloud 9 are all to be found in Eagle Heights.

Tamborine Mountain is actually a remnant volcanic plateau about 10 kms long, 5 kms wide and some 550 metres above sea level. It is lofted above the hinterland between the Pacific Ocean and the Great Dividing Range. The 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 mountain gardens. Then cockatoos and king parrots, bowerbirds and fig birds fly close by. 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.

The embracing beauty of the mountain has attracted many writers, poets, artists, artisans and travellers. Original gifts and mementos can be purchased at the many galleries and antique shops across the mountain. 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 Tamborine Mountain State School).

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 4.9643 out of 5 by 28.
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.

The house layout, views and outdoor areas were lovely for relaxing while all of the small touches - wine on arrival and gorgeous outdoor area for pre-wedding photos - made this a truly memorable stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying here, especially if you're getting married - you will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cloud 9 is a beautiful house set on what feels like the edge of the mountain itself. Stunning views overlooking the range and a small glimpse of Gold Coast. Amenities within the house itself are top quality and makes you feel like you're staying in a luxurious apartment. The spa bath is a massive plus!Thanks Warren for being a fantastic host.
