Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Host Mei was exceptionally helpful right from the start, emailing directions to the property in addition to tips for enjoying the scenic drive from Cairns to Wonga beach. On arrival Mei met us at the property and made us feel extremely welcome. She offered to email more information in addition to what was in the compendium with Reef Cottage; an offer we great fully accepted and found very useful. Mei provided excellent breakfast provisions in line with our dietary requirements with some thoughtful extras that were above and beyond what we expected.

Reef Cottage is well equipped with everything one requires for a comfortable home away from home. The decor is fresh, clean and modern with lovely artwork and homely touches throughout. There is a great collection of books suited to a wide variety of tastes, a DVD collection and I'm sure plenty of other entertainment options that we never had time to explore.

Positioned approx 150m from beautiful Wonga beach in front and with a delightful creek at the back fence (complete with an amazing orange footed scrub fowl nest), Reef Cottage is a wonderful example of "Rainforest meets Reef" that the area is famous for. Wonga beach itself is a lovely quiet spot, perfectly situated between Port Douglas and Cape Tribulation for day trip exploring of the region.

Management Response

Hi Rhonda,
Thank you for a kind review. We're happy you enjoyed your experience at Reef Cottage and its surrounds. Just a small adjustment to your observation - the distance to the beach from the front of the Cottage is 200 steps or 75 metres only! Regarding payment, I've researched "Information for international users" - Flipkey's policy (being a US company) provides that although I'm able to create a payment request to a traveller in Australian dollar, all amounts will be displayed to my guest and processed in U.S. dollars. We hope to see you again despite this minor inconvenience.
Kind regards, Mei
