Reviewed 15 December 2011

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!

Our 6 night stay at Mountain View Lodge was to be a chill out. There is nowhere better. Our hosts, Walter and Rita were most welcoming as were the resident family of bush stone curlews, as long as we had something for them.

A car is essential. The location makes Daintree easily doable and Port Douglas is only 10k away.

We hope to return.

If you are visiting Port Douglas and have rented a car, this is an ideal place to stay. It's less than 15 minutes from Port Douglas, and is beautiful and tranquil. The bungalow we stayed in is clean and modern, with a small kitchen. You could also fire up the BBQ next to the excellent pool. We are happy we stayed here.

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.

Spent a month travelling with my daughter and this was my favourite spot, so much so I extended our stay to 4 nights and hope to return again in the future.

Located in a peaceful residential area in large grounds situated away from the main road and about 10min drive from Port Douglas. Very private and comfortably furnished - the photos on their website don't do it justice as it's very light and airy.

The dipping pool was a welcome relief from the heat and, though we didn't use it, the BBQ area is comfortable and large enough to cook for several people.

Rita and Walter were amazing hosts. Very friendly and informative. Rita took great care in making sure we knew how to use the facilities and help us choose places to visit / excursions to make the best of our time there.

I could go on about Mountain View Lodge all day - and indeed do!! - but ultimately if you're looking for a peaceful retreat without going too far off the beaten track, this place is for you.

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.

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!
