It was pouring in the daintree - well it is rainforest !- but driving up the hill thro the clouds to arrive at Cockatoo Hill Retreat was amazing. A beautifully designed lodge & individual chalets set in a garden alive with flowers, birds & butterflies. High up with views across the Forest to the sea - cooler & with less mosquitoes than most of the area - a big bonus. The chalets are cool & calming, beautifully furnished with attention to detail like flowers, complimentary wine that means memories to cherish. Breakfast is taken in the main lodge - open plan of Balinese design. Carmen provides a delicious array of local fruit - we loved trying all the unheard of forest fare - breads & pastries with home made preserves. Carmen is a mine of information & advice, has some wonderful books to browse & does everything she can to make your stay special. She is one of life's special people herself. Cockatoo Hill is a long way from our home in UK so if we don't visit again I hope my review will encourage other readers to stay in this very special place.
