Reef Cottage is a stylish boutique home at the entrance to the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

Reef Cottage is beautifully presented, comfortable and spotlessly clean and perfectly positioned for exploring the Daintree, Reef and all the other attractions the area has to offer and Wonga Beach is just a short stroll away. A lovely base to come back to at the end of the day or just chill out with a great pool to cool down...

This home away from home is perfectly furnished and equipped and reflects Mei’s good taste and meticulous attention to detail. The location is perfect for exploring the area, spending time on the nearby beach or just hanging...

Management response:

This was an amazing hosting experience for us as we found kindred passion for nature and shared similar taste in music as well. We are so glad you and your wife enjoyed our home and used every opportunity to visit the surrounding rainforest and rivers. Thank you for looking after our holiday house so well. Mei loved watching that very...
