Cow Bay Hilltop Escape Details 


Set amidst the rainforest, overlooking the Coral Sea, this child-friendly, artist-inspired eco retreat is a place for the whole family to rest, rejuvenate and be inspired by nature.
Nestled on a hillside with no nearby neighbours, Cow Bay Hilltop Escape feels like a million miles away.
Completely off-the-grid, and with limited mobile coverage, Cow Bay Hilltop Escape allows you to enjoy the simple things in life: an oversized deck, magnificent ocean views, salubrious sea-breezes and the sounds of the rainforest.
Step away from the world, enjoy the solitude and rejuvenate.
Built by artists to inspire their work, the property consists of a three-bedroom main house, a guest pavilion, and an artist’s studio, comfortably sleeping 7.
Spend your days enjoying the glorious ocean views, meandering through the private bush tracks, or hunkering down and finishing off that project in the quiet solitude.
