Gorgeous spot. It was exactly what I dreamed of as a rainforest immersion. Funky room decor. Old but clean. Lovely host who gave us lots of tips for exploring the area. Where the rainforest meets the ocean. Cow Bay and other sights just exhilarating Having the pub in walking distance was a bonus for dinner and a cool ale. Recommended 😊

Wonderful location - you felt like you were right 'in' the forest here. The sounds of animals at night time made it very authentic. Unfortunately though, there was no cooktop in the room - even though there were pots and pans provided and the pictures created the impression of an equipped usable kitchen. Also, as the pool is unheated, it's too cold to swim in winter.

Great to access DainT RF. Solar power and hot water, thus NO hot water, and power cut out when in high demand.

Solar hot water banks can be electrically boosted, sorry if yours wasn't boosted enough. Power does not really cut out when in high demand, maybe for a second, generator will start to provide additional power. Saying that, we are a self-powered location with solar, battery and generator power, as such we cannot provide power to all the appliances you may be used to in a town or city.

Very pleasant, restful accommodation

Quiet, peacful, and very green. Mostly solar powered accommodation. Perfect for a break. little internet, and less phone coverage - great beaches a short drive away
