WARNING - BIG HOLIDAY PROBLEM AHEAD!
Many guests have written about their problem with Wanggulay. We feel obliged to share this with you. It begins after settling into Wanggulay and enjoying our complimentary bottle of Verve Cliquot fine French champagne on the balcony perched in the tops of the rainforest. They then begin to relax on our day bed over looking the river below that cuts through the rainforest in the spectacular Barron Gorge. Guests often spend hours in our award winning warm pool with bubble jets and an infinity edge; and then…… they stay! What we mean is they don't want to go anywhere! They often cancel their day t...Read more

Additional Location Information
The best description of Wanggulay and the beautiful rainforest it is located in ( just 11 kilometres from Cairns), and the best way to spend your precious time here comes from our many guests comments. Here is just a small sampling of those comments.
"It is now 3 months later and I still think of this house every day. Apologies for the delay but I am now back on my travels again with some time on my hands. This is the most amazing house I have stayed in. Particularly loved the different levels then all the party could come together for meals etc on the main balcony. Very well equipped kitchen and great barbeque. Eveything worked a treat WI-FI etc. We were having a family reunion with my brother who we had not been with for 20 years. Next time I want to stay a least a week great activities in the area. Thank you for the wonderful stay and all the personal touches. No expense spared here in making it a beautiful home. "
"A friend and I stayed at Wanggulay for 6 days. The setting is spectacular and the view from the back deck over the fast flowing stream is stunning. Privacy is assured as the house is nestled right into World Heritage rainforest. The atmosphere of this rainforest 'treehouse' was indeed unique with beautiful blue butterflies flying past all day and colourful parrots and white cockatoos calling in the trees adjacent. The beauty of the natural environment was complemented by high standard furnishings and modern appliances and a luxurious contemporary living design in a house which could accommodate several family groups comfortably. The pool area is secluded and yet easily accessible to the home interior. This house and its environment are a unique experience of tropical elegance and charm. It is definitely five star accommodation that is one with nature!"
"Wangulay was the perfect break. The perfectly designed home in the treetops provided the ultimate escape for our romantic sojourn. Can't wait to go back."

""Paradise in the Treetops" Thank you Wanggulay for a memorable stay. Who needs to travel to Bali when it is right here. The house is romantic, soft lights, calming aromas, waking up every day looking at natures magic. We could not have asked for more. Our honeymoon ended too quickly in paradise!"

"Well after spending 14 nights in this beautiful house I have to agree with all the comments of the previous guests. I was particularly impressed with the attention to detail, the welcoming aroma of burning oil on arrival,the beautiful linen and the fresh flower arrangement and large fruit bowl. Thank you for a great stay!"
"It was wet, wet, wet, but what a wonderful experience. Baron River Gorge, Cape Tribulation, walks along pristine beaches. The sun may have refused to show its face but the warmth and ambience of Wanggulay more than compensated. Evenings were spent cooking and bbqing and sitting on the wonderful verandah reminiscing of past times. This was a reunion of two old school friends which will never be forgotten. Many thanks for the use of Wanggulay!"
"So sad to leave.... When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Karen, immaculately presented along with the house. Wanggulay speaks for itself 5 days of rain was perfect for our rainforest retreat, stocked up on wine, good food, we had a fabulous time. We will be back!!"

"Thanks for a relaxing time in this tree top house - loved the Balinese day bed on the verandah. Have been inspired house design- we just have to find a rainforest in Canberra to build it in...Thanks Again hope to return sometime!"

"As a group of 6 we all had a wonderful time in this amazing house. The surrounds and serenity were most beautiful and relaxing. We would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone and would love to experience Wanggulay again in the near future!"
"A most enjoyable, relaxing, and fantastic experience. Beautiful setting tranquility exuding and spiritually uplifting feeling. Would love to come back again!"
