(1) master/bridal suite upstairs with queen bed + dressing room and ensuite

(2) 2nd bedroom upstairs also with a queen bed

(3) 3rd bedroom downstairs with 2 king single beds & flat-screen TV

(4) adjoining 4th bedroom downstairs with a queen bed, plus

(5) a comfy sofa bed in the upstairs media room for an extra guest, and

(6) a quality BabyBjorn travel cot (please request) + BabyBjorn high chair

The 3 queen beds and the 2 king singles all have premium pillow-top mattresses and full linen provided. And for more detail of the layout, please check out the Cloud 9 Floor Plans in the photo gallery.

You will be 'floating on air' at Cloud 9 - perched between the peak of Eagle Heights and the scarp of Tamborine Mountain. You can use the telescope to explore the ocean horizon from Jumpinpin to Main Beach, or survey the hinterland valleys of Wongawallan to the wetlands of Coombabah. There are vivid panoramas both day and night. Wake to the colours of the rising sun and see rainbows paint the local hillsides, or watch the full moon rise over the Pacific Ocean and stargaze onto a sparkling night sky. If lucky, you could catch nature's fireworks display with a lightning storm at sea or even that rare phenomena - the 'Buddha's Halo'. The upstairs bedrooms and living rooms all enjoy the uninterrupted coast and hinterland views, with walls of glass opening to the eastern verandah, while the downstairs bedrooms have filtered coastal views. And there are over 90 square metres of decks to bring the outdoors closer in.

Cloud 9 is ideally located on the north-east edge of the mountain escarpment in a quiet, end-of-court position, bordering an environmental preserve. It's a brisk walk to the popular Botanic Gardens or a 3-minute drive to the lively tourist shops, restaurants, cafes and wineries of Gallery Walk. You should visit the nearby heritage museum and stroll through the ancient rainforest of MacDonald National Park and Curtis Falls. Or adventure further with the kids to the Glow Worm Caves, Skywalk, Thunderbird Park and the Cedar Creek rock pools.

This eco-friendly holiday house is furnished throughout with quality appointments. Catch a blu ray DVD on the 51 inch Samsung TV in the media room, listen to your iPod/iPhone on the Pioneer sound system in the living room or watch sport downstairs on the other flat-screen TV. Plus good mobile coverage for your smart phone. Research the local area, play a board game with the kids and plan your next adventures around the big family dining table. Or chat with friends on the plush leather couches while the cooks prepare dinner for 9 in the well-equipped kitchen. Then again, you could simply open the complimentary bottle of wine and luxuriate in the 20 jet spa bath, or check out the mini-library and relax out on the Balinese day bed. And finally, get a good night's rest with Cloud 9's crisp linen and comfy pillows, doonas and mattresses.

There is all-year, outdoor dining for 10 or more on the viewing deck, with an undercover BBQ - great for entertaining with family and friends. Look out over the sub-tropical eucalypt forest that spills down the hillside, identify some of the many rare birds, and use the telescope to spot more reclusive wildlife. Then explore the charming Cloud 9 garden, with its majestic gum tree, roses and rainforest, pathways and hedge rows, fruit trees and a herb patch. See if you and the kids can find the hidden fairy door, the White Rabbit, the 'Spirit of the Tree Ferns' or the Cheshire Cat nesting box. And for our wedding guests, there are several garden 'rooms' to reveal and a number of colourful props to discover for those special pre-wedding photos.

Cloud 9 is enchanting in all seasons as there are no real extremes in temperature on the mountain. Be captivated by the spring mists as they rise through the valleys below, or welcome the mountain cool in summer with ocean breezes and ceiling fans in every room. Delight in the ever-changing colours of autumn, or enjoy the crystal clear days and nights of winter as you cozy up around the gas log fire.

This relaxing country home is picture perfect for a fun getaway with friends, ultra-comfortable family holiday, stylish wedding group accommodation or rewarding workplace retreat.

PLEASE NOTE: Cloud 9 employs a part-time professional gardener, cleaner and launderer, and provides regular income for several other local service providers. To help maintain Cloud 9 as a valued contributor to the Tamborine Mountain community, there are 3 reminders: (1) RESPECT the NEIGHBOURS; (2) NO FUNCTIONS or PARTIES; and (3) NO PETS.

TAMBORINE MOUNTAIN - THE GREEN BEHIND THE GOLD COAST

Cloud 9 is a scenic, 35-minute drive to the classic beaches of the Gold Coast, 30 minutes to the theme park wonderlands, 1 hour to metropolitan Brisbane and a world away from anywhere. A rainforest getaway on Tamborine Mountain is a breath of fresh air for body and spirit.

The 3 suburbs on Tamborine Mountain are Eagle Heights to the north, North Tamborine in the middle and Mount Tamborine to the south. The major attractions of Gallery Walk, the Botanic Gardens, the Heritage Museum, Curtis Falls, MacDonald National Park, Palm Grove National Park plus Cloud 9 are all to be found in Eagle Heights.

Tamborine Mountain is actually a remnant volcanic plateau about 8 km long, 4 km wide and some 550 metres above sea level. It is lofted above the hinterland between the Pacific Ocean and the Great Dividing Range. The mountain is an island in the sky, surrounded by protected rainforest and eucalypts, home to around 7000 people and a sanctuary for the native flora and fauna.

Birdwatchers and photographers especially appreciate the variety of some very rare species. Inquisitive lorikeets, honeyeaters and fairy wrens regularly visit the mountain gardens. And colourful cockatoos, king parrots and bowerbirds fly close by. Shy whipbirds and lyrebirds can be heard from afar, and boobooks and tawny frog mouth come out after dark. Meanwhile, elusive platypuses swim in the clear mountain creeks, sleepy koalas live among the gum trees and at night the glow worms glow in the forest caves.

The embracing beauty of the mountain has attracted many writers, poets, artists, artisans and travelers. Original gifts and mementos can be purchased at the many galleries and antique shops across the mountain. There is a local producer's market every Sunday from 8.00 am at the Showgrounds with the main farmer's markets every second Sunday of the month (at the Showgrounds) and every last Sunday of the month (opposite Tamborine Mountain State School).

"Tranquil Quality Retreat"

Our family of 4 (including two kids aged 2 and 5) have just had an amazing 4 night stay at cloud 9. Excellent value accomodation, clean, modern decor and furnishing, really really comfortable beds and well equiped kitchen. The views from the decking were stunning and the gardens are beautiful. My kids loved the place so much, they did not want to leave!
Thank you Murray for allowing us to stay at your wonderful property.
