Accommodation on the Atherton Tablelands.

My short stay on the Beautiful  Atherton Tablelands.

Privacy at The Motel.

Just  last week while on a brief business trip I had the very great pleasure of staying at a truly peaceful and satisfying place. It was getting late and driving through Yungaburra I was looking somewhere to pull up for the night. After trying a few places I came across this piece of paradise tucked down the back of what looked like shops. The Allumba Pocket Cottages are just off the main highway across the road from the Yungaburra markets. A prime position for market day and even the pub and shops and restaurants are only a short walk away.  But what really sold it to me was the friendly and welcoming Melanie, owner of the peaceful quiet Allumba Cottages. I was blown away with true beauty of the cottages. Set back from the road amongst luscious scrubs and gardens were these quaint timber floor cottages, statements of luxury and tranquility. First glance comes a intimate balcony facing your own personal garden with 2 chairs and outdoor table, just right for a glass of fine wine at the end of a hectic day. Turning the corner and through the wooden doors  a big Kitchenette awaits. Also in this large area, lounge and a big double bed with plenty of space and comfort. Whether watching movies or TV from the bed or lounge, comfort is the style.

Large Lounge and Kitchen.

The bathroom off to the side of the bedroom is the picture of luxury with double spa bath, separate shower and long solid timber wood bench for the vanity. Sitting in the bubbles mediating and dreaming about tomorrow will make many happy and relaxed. The cottage is self-contained, wooden floors and with wooden blinds add to the perfect level of compromise between old style ambiance and modern amenities. Highly recommended by me and I will be visiting again very soon, so next market day or when passing through Yungaburra drop and say hello to Rob and Melanie van Haaren. Prices are very competitive and the location quiet and peaceful. Contact them on 0740953023
