“Remarkable Home In A Remarkable Location”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This house sits in an incredible part of Australia and within a magnificent neighborhood in the rainforest. Brett and Belinda are truly lovely people and so easy to work with. If you have children, the waterfall and natural, safe pools are alone worth the stay. The bedrooms are air conditioned for sleeping comfort and it was easy to setup an office in the downstairs bedroom (for those who work on vacations :( ).

“Pure bliss, a must stay in Cairns.”
Reviewed 16 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I had the opportunity to stay 2 nights here with my husband and sister in law. What an absolutely wonderful place to stay. Belinda and Brett are just fabulous hosts. It was exactly what we needed for a couple of days, rest and relaxation in a peaceful, tranquil and charming pole home. Thank you so very much. A must do.

Thanks we loved hosting you too! I think the biggest gift Wanggulay offers is the chance to completely unwind and relax in the rainforest and it sounds like you did exactly that!
Come back soon.

“Great for a hen's weekend away!”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The place is absolutely wonderful and luxurious, with beautiful surroundings. Best way to appreciate the spectacular view of the rainforest is to lounge on the balcony, while sipping champagne! It is very spacious, easily fitting all 10 of us comfortably. Location is great - isolated, but an easy drive to the city or any other facilities. Belinda and Brett provided the best customer service and were willing to assist us with anything when required. Would definitely stay again. Highly recommended!

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 24 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We liked the idea of staying in the hinterland and after a long hunt to find somewhere comfortable for 4 adults and 2 young kids to spend a relaxing week in Cairns to celebrate Opa’s (Grandads) 70th, we decided to try Wanggulay Too. We initially wanted to stay at Wanggulay, its sister property which has a pool, but it was not available at that time. We were reassured by Brett that there was no compromise in quality, and he was not wrong. The place was beautiful with a large decked area up high in the treetops, overlooking the river. It was very peaceful, and although it did not have a pool, there were plenty of other things that kept the kids busy, including the ping pong table and the outside bath which was their favourite after a long day sight-seeing with adults. The outside shower was a nice touch too. It was a relaxing property to come back to after short day trips to nearby beaches, waterfalls and Kuranda (the scenic railway is a must!). Thank you Belinda and team for the comfortable stay and making us feel very welcome, and for the bubbly and card for the birthday boy :)

Great to hear that you loved our new sister property Wanggulay Too and your family reunion was a great success. Next time you will have to experience Wanggulay Bali with it's infinity edge pool.

“Fabulous rainforest retreat”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Fabulous place, highly recommend! The house is wonderful, very luxurious, and a perfect place to relax after a day hiking in the rainforest surrounding the property. It’s really great to open things up in the evening and live on the deck. Outdoor bathing a high point for me. Also loved the location - very private but close to whatever else you might need in the area. Very sad to leave at the end of our time there...

What a perfect way to end a day of hiking but to soak in the outdoor bathtub. As you say there is so much to see and do very close to Wanggulay that it's often difficult to fit everything in when the balconies beckon you just to relax and immerse yourself in the rainforest.

“Relaxing hideaway”
Reviewed 25 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Wanggulay Too was the perfect place to explore Northern Queensland. Escaping the normal tourist traps, the house allowed you to live in the rainforest and be completely surrounded by nature. All the while only being 15-20mins from all the action.

The house was well equipped to cook at home - a must at least once so you can enjoy the beautiful deck. It was the perfect place to catch up with extended family and relax.
