“'Perfect Home Base for Exploring Queensland Coast'”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We stayed here for four days, right after arriving in Australia in December. It was absolutely perfect. The grounds are like a tropical paradise (the pool is amazing) and the bungalow is clean, comfortable and well-stocked and Walter and Rita are ideal hosts. Rita sat down with us for about a half hour when we arrived, going through brochures and giving us tips on how best to use our time, given our interests. Her advice was invaluable. She and Walter are also very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of their grounds and the surrounding area. The location couldn't be better, as long as you have a car. All in all, Mountain View Lodge is a perfect place to stay -- for a relaxing getaway or as a home-base for exploring the region. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Should we ever return to Queensland, I wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else.

“Value for money”

We came to the Cairns region for some diving and to visit Daintree national park. Mountain View lodge was the perfect place / base for us, close to Port Douglas and daintree national park. After a full day diving or bush walks it was very nice to come back to Mountain View Lodge to chill in the pool and cook some food in our 'outside kitchen'. The place is very well maintained and the owners Walter and Rita are very friendly and helpful people. Rita helped us book some trips and Walter knows a lot about the area and wildlife. Would definitely come here again!

“Quiet, relaxing, yet close to the excitement - just perfect!”

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2011

My husband and I stayed at Mountain View Lodge for our anniversary in August 2011. We thoroughly enjoyed the tranquillity of the environment not more than ten minutes drive from Port Douglas.

We stayed in one of the smaller bungalows which was perfect for our needs. The bungalow was exceptionally clean and very well looked after. Rita and Walter are fantastic hosts. They treat you as guests rather than just customers and are always happy to share their knowledge and help you with your vacation. Upon finding out it was our anniversary, Rita even picked fresh flowers from her garden for us.

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay in Oak Beach and surrounds and plan to stay at Mountain View Lodge again.

Stayed August 2011, traveled as a couple

Mountain lodge was an ideal place for us all to stay in comfort and with enough privacy to feel totally relaxed. It is position just out of Port Douglas (about 15 mins drive) to feel away from the hub of tourists but close enough to pop in for supplies via the supermarket as well as access to some restaurants. Rita & Walter were excellent hosts providing good local knowledge about all the activities you want to do as well as advising the places/activities to avoid. Great advice given and taken up.

The house had everything we needed and the gardens are lovely to stroll around taking in the many birds surrounding the house.

The pool was a lovely place to relax and we always had it to ourselves, even though there were other guests staying.

One day we had a trip to the reef snorkeling and Rita arranged it all and the bus from Calypso picked us up from outside our door. The owner of Calypso is a neighbour of Walter & Ritas! Great service.

Prior to arriving, Walter & Rita were very helpful with information on getting there as well as some recommendations for activities when we arrived. We felt like we knew them both before we even arrived, our daughters referred to Mountain Lodge as 'Walter & Rita's' long before we stayed.

We were all sorry to leave. We would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes their privacy and a beautiful place to stay.

Stayed July 2011, traveled with family

Mountain View Lodge is incredible! The owners Walter u. Rita have created a private setting and made it one of the highlights of our visit in the area. As soon as we got here Walter a. Rita made us feel comfortable, showing the property and amenities. Being located so close to all major attractions and Port Douglas was very convenient. The bungalows are absolutely beautiful and spotless with everything we needed to make our stay relaxing. The area is quiet and private..... a little piece of paradise. Thank you for making our vacation special!

We had a fantastic week at Mountain View Lodge. It’s such a luxury to have a pool, garden all to yourself and to wake up to the birds singing. We spent one of the most enjoyable and relaxing holiday here thanks to Rita’s and Walter’s hospitality, the lovely environment and great facilities (internet, cooking, laundry etc) We hope to come back here in the future. Thank you!! Chika and Pierre Franc

and in 2009: Thank you for sharing you magic place with us, beautiful surroundings and very well kept garden and buildings. Will recommend your place to others and hope to come back one day for longer. Ray & Jessie, New Zealand June 2009

An unforgettable vacation in Queensland!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Mountain View Lodge for three weeks in August of 2010. We were warmly welcomed by the owners, Rita and Walter - since we were scheduled to arrive in the evening, Rita even did a bit of grocery shopping for us beforehand so that we would have food on hand when we arrived. The bungalow was well-appointed and spotlessly clean. Rita and Walter were a wonderful source of information about things to do in the area (there are MANY!) and loaned us maps and brochures to help us plan our activities. Their property is beautifully kept, and the number of birds attracted to the many trees on the property was astounding - what a wonderful way to enjoy breakfast, sipping tea on the patio at daybreak, listening to the many different calls. We have stayed in many vacation cottages in our travels and Mountain View Lodge impressed us because of the thought and care that had been taken to anticipate our needs as guests. We would go back in a heartbeat - thank you, Walter and Rita, for helping to make our holiday unforgettable!

Ferienhaus bei Port Douglas

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 11 Tage in einem der 3 Bungalows auf Ritas und Walters Anwesen in der Nähe von Port Douglas. Die 3 Bungalows liegen in einem großen Grundstück, dessen wunderschöner Baumbestand mit botan. Sachverstand angelegt wurde. Die kleine Küche, das WZ mit Sofa und großem Fernseher und das Bett befinden sich in einem großen Raum, der so gut aufgeteilt ist, dass jeder Wohnbereich für sich ist. Gut war auch der große Einbauschrank, in dem man seine Sachen gut unterbringen konnte. Das Bad und der Wohnbereich waren sehr sauber und gepflegt.
Besonders genossen haben wir den schönen von Palmen umgebenen Pool und die überdachte Außenküche mit eigenen Kühlschrank, Backofen, 2 Herdplatten, Grillgelegenheit und Sitzecke. Wir haben immer draußen gekocht.
Rita und Walter haben uns bestens mit Informationen versorgt, und wenn es was zu buchen gab, hat Rita das sofort erledigt. Auch ihre Tipps bzgl. der diversen Organisationen waren sehr hilfreich und haben uns bei der Entscheidungsfindung geholfen. Da wir abends immer draußen saßen, obwohl die Nächte noch frisch waren, konnten wir die DVDs, die Rita uns netterweise zur Verfügung gestellt hat, überhaupt nicht anschauen.
Das Quartier ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für Unternehmungen in alle Richtungen. Es liegt in der Nähe von Port Douglas, so dass wir einerseits die gute Infrastruktur und das Treiben dort genießen konnten, wenn wir wollten, auf der anderen Seite uns die Natur und die schöne Umgebung bei Rita und Walter genauso begeistert hat. Wir sind von dort zum Barrier Reef, mehrmals in den wunderschönen Daintree NP und ins Tableland, sind gewandert, geschnorchelt und getaucht und haben bei weitem noch nicht alles entdeckt, was man dort entdecken und machen kann.
Insgesamt können wir die Unterkunft bei Rita und Walter nur empfehlen, da man bei den beiden bestens aufgehoben ist, sich super erholen kann und anderseits ganz viel in diesem wunderschönen Eck von Queensland mit seiner spektakulären unverbauten Küste und dem Regenwald machen kann. Wir kommen sicher wieder.

Owner's Response: Hallo, liebe Ursula,

herzlichen Dank für die netten Worte und wir haben und sehr gefreut, daß es Euch so gut bei uns gefallen hat. Ihr wart uns liebe Gäste und ebenso groß wäre die Freude, falls es Euch nochmals nach Mountain View Lodge führen würde. Bis dahin wird Walter bestimmt einen Weg zu einem Bach ausgekundschaftet haben, ausgerüstet mit Pfanne und Pickel, um mit Euch dann eventuell das Abenteuer des Goldsuchens auf den Pfaden alter Pioniere zu erkunden. Jetzt wünschen wir Euch alles Gute und verbleiben mit

liebe Grüße aus Port Douglas, Australien
