The cabins are extremely clean, neat and tidy. A very comfortable queen size bed and great lounge area to relax after a busy day exploring and then a dip in the beautiful pool. Our daughter and family holidayed with us and had the cabin next door which was wonderful. Simon & Allison are really friendly and helpful. Just a great place to stay.

It's a nice clean spot with a beautiful pool area.The cabins are very large with 2 double Queensize beds and well equipped. If I would come back it will be my first choice and even the price is it worth (145 AUD)

Recently, while en route to Cooktown, we stayed the night at the Mossman Motel & Holiday Villas. The villas were large, tastefully decorated & clean and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed having breakfast by the pool & loved the gardens. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We're glad we stayed there & would do so again.

Lovely, clean cabins. Although top bunk does not have a safety rail for the children. Villas are surrounded by beautiful gardens and pool. Very helpful and friendly owners. Not expecting this from the outside, as it is on a busy road, but a pleasant surprise!

We are trying to find a cost effective solution to the bunk problem. Its not just the cost of the rails but also the OH&S considerations for our room attendants coupled with extra time taken to make a bunk bed with a permanently fixed guard rail as per the new legislation. However we are addressing the situation as a matter of urgency.

I found this place by chance, on booking.com, and it feels like we won the lottery finding this gem! We are a Canadian family living in Cairns for a year so have stayed here twice, with more visits in our future for sure. Can't recommend this place enough! PERFECT for families with young kids, and my parents loved it too. Honestly no negative feedback from our 2 stays there, so I'll just share some of what I love about this place:
- it's CUTE! The Villa's and the set-up are just adorably lovely!
- it's VERY well maintained.... from spotless units to impeccably maintained grounds and common areas, the pride Simon & his family take in their business is evident.
- it is so WELL THOUGHT OUT! They've really thought about so many elements of what make a great getaway/vacation.... including.... the free bbq's you can roll up to your unit.... the kids playground.... the kid sized stacking chairs you can take & move right to outside your unit..... the gorgeous pool, including a small kids wading pool, a whirlpool and waterfall.... the massive, free dvd library to borrow from (note tho, that we didn't find any cartoons or movies for very young children.... just bring a couple from home!).... communal guest kitchen that has every size and shape of pot you could ever need, as well as a full sized fridge/freezer if the mini one in your unit isn't enough.... free washing machine with clothesline, if you want to use a dryer it's available and coin operated.
- Everything is new, modern, and fresh!
- the a/c is SUPER QUIET!
- the location! We live in Cairns, but Port Douglas beach is our favourite.... this place is maybe a 15 min drive or so.... it's a perfect base for Port Douglas.... and for the Daintree/Cape Trib as well. Mossman Gorge is a stones throw away. It's right on the main road as you come in to Mossman from the south (Port Douglas side), so it's easy to find as well.
- having stayed in other places in the Cairns area, we really appreciate that they don't nickle and dime you here for things like laundry, bbq's, movies, beach/pool towels etc.... (At Ellis Beach Bungalows we had to pay $2 to get an extra bath towel....) While most places provide tea/coffee, here you also get little packets of cookies.... it's a small thing, but a nice touch!
- There is a Woolworths grocery store w/i easy walking distance.... if needed, in the book in the room I read that you can prearrange to have a bbq pack ready for you if you think you'll be arriving late or just want the convenience of your fridge being stocked for you. "Sugars" the take away place just down the road has great food if you want to order.
- this place is very budget friendly, but it's so well appointed you also get a little bit of luxury as well!

The only small suggestions I would have for the owners is maybe to include a portable fan in the closet in the units.... (or, just have a couple available from reception, with a note posted in the closet so guests are aware).... and, being from Canada we just don't understand Australia's love affair with instant coffee. I would absolutely pay if you had one of those coffee machine's in the reception area and then sold the pods to make a better cup of coffee..... In N.America ours are called Tassimo/Keurig.... They are a different name here, but know they are available... you could provide the machine, and sell the pods. :)

I'm sure it's clear but I can't overstate how much we love this place. Our kids (2 & 4yo) have a great time (they especially love the pool, playground, and the huge fish tank in the communal kitchen), my sister & her family loved it (July 2013), as did my parents (Oct 2013). It is our go to place for our year down under. Skip the more expensive properties in Port Douglas and stay here.... you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for the great review. You have made some great suggestions and we have acted on some already. We have already purchased some fans that are available in reception and hope to equip each room in the future. I have moved some of our own cartoon movies into the guest collection. (Don't tell anyone but I love "Finding Nemo"). A pod coffee machine will be available in the guest kitchen with pods available for purchase from reception.
Once again thanks for the feedback.

We were going to Mossman George and didn't have a hotel and stopped at the Mossman Motel Holiday Vistas. The moment we walked in we could tell this was a nice place. They have individual cottages and Simon showed us two of them to choose from. They have all recently been renovated and after talking with the family, many upgrades had been made. The villas were really nice and modern with all new furniture, new fridge, new microwave, new huge flat screen tv, etc. Everything was very nice. The bathrooms were very clean as well. And 3 feet from our front porch of the villa were banana trees. The landscaping was really well maintained and there is a beautiful pool for the guests. We ate our dinner poolside and is was serene and relaxing. The pool was a great way to wrap up our long day. You can grill your own fish or meat and they have great accommodations for guests. This is a family run business and the family was really nice and helpful. We thank them for such a great stay and we are sorry we're weren't able to stay longer. We strongly recommend this to any potential guests. There is a Woolworth's grocery store very close by and the Mossman George is only a 5 minute drive away.

Mossman is the perfect place to see the Daintree Rainforest and visit the Great Barrier Reef without being tied up in the Tourist trap that is Port Douglas.

We pride ourselves on our attention to details so we are pleased you noticed it. Thanks for talking the time to review our property. Hope you can stay longer next time.
