Stunning location, facilities and accommodation! The glass bar has a pool table and amazing lights, could party in there all night. The lagoon was spectacular and the creek and walks on the property were amazing. Sue met us when we arrived and had all our breakfast and sparkling wine organised. She took us on a short tour of the property but didn't show us everything so we could explore and discover the wonders ourselves. This was an amazing honeymoon and we will be back one day!

This was our second stay at Misty Mountains and it just gets better!! We spent our days around the lagoon pool, reading and relaxing, listening to the beautiful birds. We also spent days exploring the magical rainforest, swimming in the stream and watching fire flies. The night times were filled relaxing at the glass bar, playing pool and dancing!! We stayed for 7 days and didn’t leave once. You feel completely energised by your surroundings and very lucky to be able to experience Misty Mountains, but it’s always sad when it’s time to leave. If you want to get away from everything and spend time with your partner, in complete privacy, then we highly recommend staying here!! Thank you for another brilliant holiday❤️❤️❤️

The most amazing location including a private rainforest and creek. More importantly, fantastic facilities with comfy beds, killer pool and sundeck. The most amazing feature was the best party room we could ever hope for. Definitely back again!

Words cannot describe this hidden little gem. From the moment you head down the rainforest lined driveway you are transported to a hideaway where you can leave your world behind. Sharon greeted us with a warm and joyful disposition, showed us around then left us to embrace the peace and tranquility. Only a call away if needed otherwise no interruptions. This property is beautifully presented and has it all from enchanting rainforest walks with flowing creek to resort pool and the glass bar. We will most definitely be returning for a longer stay next time as it is somewhere we will never forget 🥰

We've visitted Australia for the first time in Cairns and was looking for a getaway for our family and we found Misty Mountain on Google so after reading the reviews and speaking with Sharon we decided to have holiday there. There are jo words to describe this peaful property filled with wildlife and beautiful ancient rainforest we were very suprised when we look from balcony down onto the garden to see cassawory which we have never seen before. We look for tour return one day and tell all our friends in Vietnam about memoriable experiences in this property.
