A cosy private rainforest cabin with everything.

Pros: Friendly operators. High standards. Quiet. Private. Very clean. Fresh fruit off the trees. Generous breakfast package. Well stocked.
Location: Easy access to local attractions
Quiet, cosy, and wanting for nothing; Sharlynn was well appointed with everything you need for the perfect rainforest couples getaway. Falling asleep to the sound of the river and the crackle of the fire after a relaxing hot spa was lush. John an Pam made sure we had everything we needed, and Charlie the collie was well behaved. We hope to return for another stay in the near future.
