“So good! Wonderful”

This place is simply awesome. Not only is it located near the Cairns airport, Palm Cove and Port Douglas -- it is located in a private, secluded, rain forest setting. We enjoyed it as a couple but there is a lot of space for larger groups. The balcony in the backyard is in the forest and full of exotic creatures. We spent almost all of our time on the deck grilling and relaxing. Inside is very well- appointed with everything you need for your stay. Comfy beds, nice linens, modern kitchen, Apple TV... On and on....

Did I mention the outdoor shower and bath? So good...

Owners are smart, helpful and great.

Highly recommend

Thank you so much for your review

We love to help guests have the best possible time and to save time! So many guests comment that we are better located than Cairns city simply because all the best attractions and restaurants are closer to us then the city!

We are glad you enjoyed all the extras, we recently added Netflix channels to the Apple Tv so guests can have unlimited free movies and television series and documentaries.

Have a great day !

“Treetop escape.”

We have just returned from a week long stay at Wanggulay Too, having had a very relaxing stay. The house was clean and comfortable.The outdoor deck area was our favourite place to wind down after a days activities, our only regret was that there was no pool.Perhaps, instead of an outdoor bath, a hot tub would have been a plus.We were a bit cold overnight, and a few more blankets would have been great.
The house is tucked away in the foothills, yet only 20 minutes from the airport, and a few more minutes to Cairns. The supermarket at Redlynch was very handy.
All in all, we had a great stay.

Hi

Thank you for your review. We always find guests comments so helpful because we are always looking to improve our service. We now provide the extra blankets and Bet our manager as always comes at a moments notice if there is any problem. The outdoor bath has been so loved by the guests and we are now piping hot water to the tub so you can be toasty warm whilst looking over the river below or into the rainforest treetops above.

We would love to welcome you back and don't forget we also have Wanggulay Bali our other luxury and award winning rental with an infinity edge pool and spa.

Kind regards

“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!
