Interaction with guests
We live 20 minutes away on the edge of the Tablelands, so will only come if you want to see us, or if you need anything. We don't usually get to meet our guests, except through email.
This part of the world is so beautiful, every day we feel blessed to live here. Even after work I can go to Port Douglas to shop, and instantly feel "on holidays" There's something about the ocean that does it . I go to Mossman Gorge whenever I can to be in the middle of the Daintree rain forest, its so restoring.
Options for getting to the Ramada from Cairns Airport on the beautiful coast road are - car hire, Shuttle bus or our 1957 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud Limousine. There are many shuttle bus services online for around $44 per person. Sunpalm are slightly more, but have a desk at the Airport near the luggage carousel.
Once you're in Port Douglas you can hire bicycles from Reception, enjoy a walk (if you're keen) or catch the shuttle bus into town that comes by every 20 minutes or so for $5, $9 return or $25 for a 3 day pass.
Parking is included at the front and side of the Resort.

Have a wonderful time...
Leave the air conditioner and fan on when you're out, rooms can go mouldy if left off.
There are books to read, if you're not finished one you're enjoying take it with you.
As this is a private room, you cannot put anything on the tab, pay as you go for all food & drink. The staff are helpful and will arrange tours etc.
Strictly no smoking
We live in a cottage in the rain forest in the Tablelands and enjoy wood work - carved rocking horses and furniture, gardening and spending time with the grandchildren.
