I was lucky enough to meet a cassowary chick within half hour of checking in! The breakfast is Devine, the hosts are friendly an only a short drive to the beach.

Peaceful and beautiful stay

Very beautiful colonial/queenslander style architecture built for comfort in the tropics. Complimented by an amazing garden I was very impressed with this lodge. I would consider staying there again most deffinately.

Nice little B&B

Pros: Good hosts. Great breakfast. Interesting garden surrounds.
Comfortable B&B. Nice little rooms with a separate communal lounge area. A bit away from the beach and shops but in a nice garden area.
