grand views and pri­vacy

The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Advertising Promotion -

Es­cape to the cool Ather­ton Table­land this Easter for a lux­ury get­away to the award-win­ning Grand­view Coun­try Re­treat. In the heart of the wa­ter­falls and lakes dis­trict, Grand­view is reached by a leisurely drive from Cairns through rain­for­est and across rolling hills.

Once there you can un­wind in a choice of self-con­tained ac­com­mo­da­tion, whether you ar­rive as part of a cou­ple, fam­ily or a group of friends.

Grand­view owner Louise Knol says the three self-con­tained, in­di­vid­u­ally themed suites have been po­si­tioned for max­i­mum pri­vacy.

“Our guests can re­lax on their private decks and en­joy the five acres of gar­dens and beau­ti­ful views of the area,” Louise says.

Win­ner of the Trop­i­cal North Queens­land Hosted Ac­com­mo­da­tion award in 2006 and 2007, Grand­view of­fers a wide range of fa­cil­i­ties to tempt the guest who sim­ply wishes to stay put on the prop­erty for their en­tire stay.

Re­lax in the heated hy­drother­apy spa, sweat it out in the sauna, en­joy a game of pool or bil­liards or try some­thing a lit­tle more en­er­getic such as ten­nis or moun­tain bike rid­ing.

“Or you can sim­ply ‘veg out’ in the gar­den with a good book,” Louise says.

Lots of lit­tle touches abound in the form of fluffy bath robes, per­sonal toi­letries and lo­cal hand-made soaps, port and choco­lates and a TV/DVD with free movies.

The daily coun­try break­fast ham­per fea­tures Ather­ton Table­land pro­duce, ground cof­fee and leaf tea.

For lunch and din­ner bring your own sup­plies and use the fully equipped kitchen and elec­tric bar­be­cue to whip up a meal, be­fore chat­ting with your hosts at the li­censed Ice-O-Bar.

But if it is the Hin­ter­land you have come to see you are in luck as the prop­erty is lo­cated within 20 min­utes’ drive of the area’s ma­jor at­trac­tions.

Th­ese in­clude the wa­ter­falls at Mil­laa Mil­laa and Ma­landa.
