We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite, it's a very large room with a nice view but it kind of stops there... The room could do with some basic maintenance. Several lights not working, ceiling fans rusty and paint peeling off the blades, toilet roll holder siliconed to the wall, room needs a fresh paint and the universal tv remote was useless. Peter the owner was very friendly and we received a welcoming check in.

Explanation on web site was not clear. This is very much catered for backpackers and is shared accommodation. Not for the weiry traveller needing a peaceful rest

This is not a fair comment towards our property. The guests had driven for over 12 hours, arrived late on a Sunday night and demanded they had booked a whole house for their $84. They didn't get out of the car and drove off. This Review does not correctly represent our Retreat and should be removed. Look at all of our other reviews and you will immediately recognise this review is not consistent with all others. I request it be removed

Nice view over the bay. The property is high over the city and so the roads to reach it are rather steep (and dark at night). Rooms are small and functional, with minimum amenities (no TV and no internet in the rooms). Some additional cleaning effort would be appreciated....

Hi Steven. Thanks for your Review. Being a Retreat many of our guests prefer to enjoy the natural features our property is lucky to enjoy. The sounds of the Rainforest and the brightness of the stars at night are an incredible experience. The only alarm clock is the sound of the cockatoos squawking at the Kookaburras at 7am. Quite a different way to wake up. The Free and Fast Internet is enjoyed in our Central Facility "Club House" about 50 metres from the Lodges. There is a snooker table, massage lounge, indoor Roman Spa style pool and hammocks everywhere to relax - oh, and a Huge Cinema Screen for guests to watch television, Netflix Movies, Music Clips or even their own experiences they have enjoyed in the Whitsundays. If you need to watch television there is also a tv in the Lounge/Living area of the Lodges and if you need one in your room (as I advise at check in) you simply need to ask as we can provide one upon request. Glad you enjoyed the view and your room mate. Take care Steven. Regards Pete

Every thing sbout it was a surprise, the layout of the room with its common room attacment, the panoramic view is stunning and the owner (Peter), just goes out of his way to please. The area is so peaceful and quiet. I got crook knees and Peter went out of his way to help. I am definitely bookingcthis again.
