Pam and John are very friendly, easy going people. They help you with all questions. Every morning a very good and different breakfast. They are really interested in your stories and experience and like drinking some wine or tea with you.
The place is clean, very comfortable and there is a nice swimmingpool.

During our Queensland trip we spent three wonderful nights in the beautiful Marae B&B. Our great and very friendly hosts Pam and John have spoiled us not only around the clock, but we were also able to spend unforgettable evenings together with music, stories and wine.
Marae B&B is an ideal location to the area around Port Douglas to explore : interesting tours with local aboriginal guides , exciting day trips / hikes through the rainforest , excursions to the nationalparks in the area ( Daintree , Mossmann Gorge , Cape Tribulation ) or tours to the Great Barrier Reef.
A dream is the wonderful breakfast in several courses every morning : a wide range of tropical fruits , fresh juices , yogurt , serials , breadbasket , homemade marmelade and especially daily changing hot dishes. Every breakfast was a surprise in itself. So lovingly prepared feast for the eyes !!!
And from the breakfastdeck you can enjoy magnificent views to Mossmann Gorge.
Pam and John can help with everyday leisure activities and have in this regard a lot of helpful tips and contact.
The garden room is beautiful and very comfortable , especially the own pool including garden invites you to relax daily and lounging on a pool.
Unfortunately we had only three days available , we would like to be to have stayed longer, but then we are planning a return in 2018 on the occasion of our next trip to australia :-) .
We felt at home with you ! A greater praise can not be done !!!
Many thanks for everything .

I stayed here with my sister for 3 nights. Pam and John were extremely welcoming and friendly, and full of excellent advice. The view from their house is stunning, and breakfasts absolutely divine- fruit, pancakes, coffee, so many courses! I would recommend this as a place to stay away from it all, yet only 20 mins from Port Douglas.

Beyond expectation, great service and support from Pam and John, they put us back on track again, valuable informaton about region, lovely room, good beds and bathroom. To catch our flight to Ayers Rock from Cairns we had to leave early, many thanks for the picknick basket we found in our room, a place worth to stay a few days longer as we did.

Marae is the most fantastic place I've ever stayed in. The hosts Pam and John really make the place special, being welcoming, charming and very conversational. The house is pretty special too - the perfect design for tropical living with nary a pane of glass in sight but with wrap-around wooden shutters that open straight out to the tropical air. Pam was really wonderful as my sister and I were visiting to scatter some of our parents' ashes into the ocean at Newell Beach and she put us in touch with people who could assist. And she tracked down people who even remembered my father so we could have a chat to them.

We had great conversations with Pam and John while we were there and felt like we were old friends by the time we left. Not everyone can make you feel that welcome!

Marae's location makes you feel as if you are in a wilderness lodge, rather than 1 hour from Cairns, and 10 minutes from Mossman, with an outlook across cloud-covered mountains and the Mossman Gorge in the distance. If you like bird-watching you will enjoy the lovely breakfast on the deck with birds flitting around the nectar-covered shrubs and bushes in the garden.

The rooms were just great - luxurious and private - and we even braved a swim in the pool. It was quite chilly for Far North Queensland on our visit but not enough to stop us swimming!

A wonderful place and you won't be disappointed.
