If you are looking to seriously escape to a safe haven then this is your Shangri-La with the majestic Daintree Mountains as your vista. Shangri-La offers private accommodation ensuring a relaxing and unforgettable holiday for family, friends, or honeymooners. Forget the stresses of everyday life and rekindle the soul at this tropical paradise.

The senses are saturated as soon as you enter the 500-metre winding drive through a coconut and mango grove dotted with neem trees and exotics. The stone-walled, French provincial design house accommodates 6 people with an intimate atmosphere. The well-traveled owners have paid attention to detail with touches that you would only find in European havens. The house features a 14-metre heated wet edge lap pool with glorious views of the Daintree Mountains. Rediscover the simple pleasures of life. Reading, breathing the mountain air, swimming, exploring the fascinating valley on bicycles, taking a dip in a mountain stream, and long walks through the lush unspoiled gardens this property offers. Incredible views to dine by with the mountains luring the sun to bed in spectacular sunsets. A magical private paradise...absolute seclusion. If you like bird watching, this retreat is for you!

Choose Shangri-La for your Port Douglas holiday house or Daintree accommodation.

‘Our time spent at Shangri-La will always be etched in our minds and memories as one of our favourite holidays. The simplicity of just enjoying the amazing views and breathing in the best of the valley has been an indulgent pleasure that has been welcomed by our whole family. The kids have had the time of their life, exploring, learning, discovering and just being free in such a wonderful place. While my husband and I enjoyed relaxing, talking and remembering who we are again. Pure bliss!! Thank you – your hospitality is unrivalled!’


‘We have just left Shangri-la and have had an absolutely wonderful time.  Thank you so much for sharing that lovely slice of heaven with us.  We hope to be back at some stage in the future.’


'We enjoyed our stay!!!! I will definitely be booking one of your beautiful properties again sometime soon :)'

'First of all ... WOW! My husband and I have travelled A LOT. When we say this is the best AirBnB we have stayed in, we mean it. Wendy was amazing to communicate with and incredibly responsive. The home was incredibly. Surroundings and views were the best we've ever experienced. Close to everything but far enough away for privacy and seclusion. the house itself was completely underrated. The ensuite bathroom is stunning and was our favourite room in the house. The pool Ooh lala Shangrila! LOVE! Spent far too many hours lounging and napping in the day bed by this stunning pool! Absolutely nothing negative to report. We will be back!'
