Very sad to see this review Natasha and the kids had seemed to be enjoying the rainforest over their two night stay They did advise us they had seen ‘mice’ in their bungalow and were told immediately that these are Thornton Peak Melamy’s an endemic native animal that occasionally ventures into the Cabins in search of food We also advised them as we do all our guests not to keep food in the room to minimise any unwanted visitors Again sad to hear they weren’t happy

what a great place to stay to get the kids out of the city and into some nature. steve and sally are warm, enthusiastic and accommodating hosts. it has a wonderful communal feel and puts you right in the rainforest. the meals are great value and are simple and delicious. games galore, nature tracks to explore and a great way to enjoy a more simple existence. the kids loved it and we would recommend highly for families with young kids looking for something a little different a resort and kids club.

Had a great time, such a great jungle feel. We saw a cassowary and it's babies just strolling past during breakfast. The staff are really great, wish we had stayed longer.

Great place if you want to be amongst the wildlife, and live simply. Great value for money. The cafe meals were yummy and well priced. Enjoyed our stay very much.
