Light and airy, Bedroom 1 has one luxury king bed and a sunroom with lovely garden views while Bedroom 2 has one luxury queen bed looking into the lush garden. There is a gourmet kitchen more below and one combined bathroom/toilet with a smart cubicle. A practical outdoor shower can be found near the foot wash area at the back of the house. Themed artworks adorn the walls throughout, and all internal floors are tiled.

For ease of living, you're provided with complimentary breakfast provisions and table service for 8. WIFI and use of iPad is free. Relax with our extensive library of DVDs or music from your docked mobile. Within your comfortable surroundings, you may tuck into a quiet read, meditate in the sunroom, laze in your own private plunge pool, cook a BBQ or simply enjoy a drink on the deck or around the fire pit accompanied by the gentle little nature reserve in the background.

Should you go exploring, you'll love coming back to Reef Cottage, to unwind with your creature comforts - climate control and fully screened, outdoor wash area, indoor wide shower head, soft Egyptian cotton bath towels, luxury hotel beds and bed linen, flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player, wide lounge and arm chairs, fully equipped gourmet kitchen including Espresso maker, locality specific library and board games are some of the amenities you'll enjoy in the house.

THE BEACH

One of the finest beaches of the northern coast, Wonga Beach is just 200 steps from your front door. It faces the Coral Sea, home of the Great Barrier Reef. Stroll peacefully and take in spectacular Daintree mountain views in the north. At low tide, explore South Wonga Beach's coral reef with its tidal pools and interesting microcosms. Migratory shore birds seasonally visit and many tropical birds inhabit the beach forest where traversing walkways and a few historic sites can be found. We provide deluxe canopy chairs and picnic gear for you to while timelessly away at the beach.

WORLD HERITAGE WONDERLAND

There is enormous beckoning from the land and seascapes within this part of Tropical North Queensland. Reef Cottage is an ideal base for extending your exploration into two of Australia’s UNESCO World Heritage listed sites Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics. This area is known for unique leisure activities such as reef tours, eco island trips, rare species spotting, birding, rainforest trekking, swimming in the wild, river sports, jungle surfing as well as its aboriginal culture.

We are avid nature lovers and have stocked the Cottage with resources including brochures, books, videos, scouter binocular and an iPad loaded with guiding material to help you plan your excursions in this wonderful part of Australia. Small group private boat charter can be arranged for your exclusive touring of the Great Barrier Reef and her islands.
