Mountain View Lodge
Reviewed 15 August 2012

The Mountain View Lodge is a beautiful place with lovely bungalows preserved from the touristic frenzy in a luxuriant garden overlooking the mountains.
We were very well welcomed by our 2 hosts Rita and Walter who spent some time with us to advise on the touristic attractions in the area and gave us some good tips which proved very useful. We had a fantastic time in Port Douglas and really enjoyed the charm and peacefullness of the bungalows. The swimming pool and BBQ area was perfect to spend a nice and relaxing evening in wonderful surroundings. All this at a very fair price.
We loved it!

The week my partner and I spent at the Mountain View Lodge was wonderful. Rita and Walter are excellent hosts, with a wealth of knowledge of the area to share with you. As long as you've got a rental car, this location is ideal; to get to most anything, you've got to go at least 10km down the road. The bungalow was immaculate- simple and nice, and the barbecue is the best thing you could ever have out your doorstep. The pool is absolutely beautiful and refreshing as well. The Mountain View Lodge is where I will make sure to stay when we head back in the Port Douglas direction again.

We really enjoyed the place. The bungalows are nice and very clean and situated in a luxuriant tropical garden. The owners have been really helpful and very kind. Too bad we couldn't use the swimming pool because of the rainy weather. However we enjoyed all the other facilities such as the BBQ.
C'est vraiment un superbe endroit, tout près de Port Douglas, avec des hôtes charmants et attentionnés.

What an amazing place ! A little paradise. The bungalows are cute, modern and very clean. The swimming pool is beautiful , the gardens are immaculate.
It was so relaxing to be able to hang out around the swimming pool, have a BBQ !
We adored the place.
It is close to Port Douglas as well.
We could be adventurous all day, go the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Forest and come back and relax. We didnt go out for dinner much as we just loved Mountain View Lodge.
The perfect stay !

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.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong.

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.
