Online bookings

Hi to all the readers,

online booking is a very convenient way to book accommodation, no doubt.

For small B&B's like this one it is BEST to use our own website to make the booking.
The cost for this service is very good for us, nearly the same as processing credit cards ourselves- yes we pay for all this.
Also, we don't have to pay commission to big online booking machines, and they can add up!

The best thing is though that on our website's online, secure and life facility is a very good 4 night stay special, which guests can only book with us. Check it out:

Anyone can still phone us direct to make a booking and that is just perfect. We will ask for credit card details and charge the card and email the receipt.

Wishing you a great day from sunny Cow Bay!
and Cow Bay Homestay B&B

In the Wet

 well it is the Wet now, we think.....
The forecast is for lots of rain over the week end. We have had some , up to 100mm on a day, but really it is just drizzly and then very heavy rain with big wind gusts. This makes it hard to do anything, as I have to be ready to run---yes run, very quickly-- and collect all the tools at the same time.
Sometimes also the kittens....
We have 2 boy cats , kittens: Ginger and Tabby, we picked up from Daintree Village on 3. Jan this year. They are truly delightful and now big enough to do some gardening with me. This really means that they run around a lot, run up any tree in the way and generally have lots of fun chasing each other. They keep close and/or come back after short excursions. After these outings, they are totally exhausted and have a big sleep! Great.
We have lots of fun with them and they even do some things we insist on: no sitting on tables!

I will post some more photos as they do grow quickly.
Well, in other news:
 the creek is running really well, the crocs may have left the beach now, and the stingers should be swept out to sea with all the fresh water in Cow Bay. Guided walks are good now with the animals very active in this wet and cooler weather.
