Manta Ray is situated at Newell Beach, a beautiful white sand tropical beach. The guest accommodation is located in a separate pavilion on the other side of the large salt water pool and comprises 2 bedrooms, each with QS beds, fan, air-conditioning, bar fridge. Rates includes a tropical breakfast.

The Space

The B & B is set within a tropical garden compound and is a 2 minute walk to the beach. A daybed over the pool offers an opportunity to relax by the pool and enjoy tropical breezes. The QS beds have mosquito netting and rooms are furnished in a Bali style. Perfect for honeymooning couples.
Please note that if you are wishing to accommodate more than 2 people, you will need to book 2 rooms and we (email hidden) of 10% when booking 2 rooms.
Although we have 2 rooms we only let both for a family/group booking as we do not expect couples who do not know each other to share the bathroom. So if you are just a couple, you would have a private bathroom.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the large salt water pool and use of the tropical gardens. Garden lounges are available for relaxing. Wi-Fi is available.

Interaction with Guests

Breakfast is a good time for Anne and Fernando to share their knowledge of the local area. Brochures on the many and varied local attractions are available and a tour booking service is provided.

The Neighborhood

Manta Ray is well located for trips to the Reef and Rainforest and also the Tablelands.
Nearby attractions include a Crocodile Adventure park and crocodile spotting tours, Wildlife and bird sanctuary, reef fishing and sailing. Mossman Gorge rainforest, indigenous art gallery and guided tours. Coffee plantations, tropical fruit wineries, Golf courses, bird and wildlife spotting tours etc,

Getting around

We recommend you hire a car from the airport as transport to and from the airport is expensive and does not service Newell Beach.

Other Things to Note

We have two bedrooms available, suitable for group or family bookings. When booking two rooms we offer a discount of 10% on the per room/day rate.

  • This accommodation is just lovely. Anne and Fernando welcome you to their special haven among the quiet setting of Newell Beach. One night was not enough and we will definitely return to spend time with them again. Thanks so much to both!

  • A beautiful experience! The accommodations are top-notch, the hosts were wonderful and our expectations were exceeded. The Spraggs are (email hidden), well worth the visit and we will try to visit them again.

    The location is peaceful and secluded, but it's only a few blocks from the beach.

    The bedrooms and bathroom are well designed and the furnishings are top quality. The outdoor spaces are beautiful and you do have sense of being in a tropical setting.

    The breakfasts were delicious and we had a chance to sit and chat with Fernando and Anne, who shared their suggestions on local sights. There's also a great little restaurant nearby which enjoyed during our stay.

    All in (email hidden), great value and wonderful hosts. We couldn't have asked for more...

  • We had a super stay at Anne and Fernandos. They went all out to make sure that our stay was comfortable and gave us plenty of advice of things to do in the area. The breakfast was superb and set us up for the day, no lunch needed! We would highly recommend.

  • Thanks Anne and Fernando for our lovely stay. This has been another unique experience of airbnb and again it was a positive one. The house and garden are absolutely stunning and the breakfast is amazing. However, there is no possibility of cooking in this place, there is plenty of good restaurants in nearby cities Mossman and Port Douglas. Our hosts provided us with a lot of useful tips on local restaurants and trips and all 4 of us had a pleasant (email hidden). I am glad that we decided for Anne and Fernando’s house as it has a great location and everything is nice and clean. Being situated 80 km from Cairns airport you will need to rent a car for getting there, but everything you need is in great driving distance.
