Monreale is on three acres of stunning gardens create a picture postcard at every glance. Discover areas of the gardens that were planted 100 years ago with aged oak trees and delight in the water-garden features of our more recent addition to the gardens.

A special haven with cascading waterfalls, ponds filled with rainbow trout, creeks, bridges, tree fern grottos, all create a natural screen effect that ensures guests enjoy their privacy while being able to enjoy the natural environment at their door. As the sun sets you begin to hear a chorus of bird calls.

Each of our four architecturally designed cottages and two retreats are self catering, spacious and have large floor to ceiling windows that showcase the surrounding gardens and rainforest. The interior design reflects a stylish country theme decor.
