Bonita Vida is located in the heart of Palm Cove, only a 5-minute walk to the beach and main esplanade ALL of Palm Coves restaurants are on the Esplanade via a tropical boardwalk. Our pavilion-style house embraces a tropical lifestyle and oozes holiday vibes. It's completely private, yet close to the action.

Bonita Vida – Our guest’s favourite bits:

- “It was like a 5-star resort without the crowds and loud children”.

Lindsay - Brunswick VIC

- “The property is well designed, fully equipped and there is nothing you have to worry about”.

Philippe - Switzerland

- “Loved having the plunge pool to ourselves to take a dip whenever we felt like it, and the BBQ area

is awesome.

There are so many great restaurants in Palm Cove, and the main strip along the beach is just a 5min walk from Bonita Vida”.

Nikki – Perth, WA
