We came here with a 3.5 yr old to get away from the hustle and busy of busy reality and spend time in the close by Springbrook National Park. The views from this place were mind-blowing, the staff were also super attentive and had great local knowledge of the area and natural environment. Great place to feel connected with nature and feel at home. would defiantly come back : )

Lovely location with very tired and very dirty accommodation! Owner obviously doesn’t care!! Wish I could post pics of the cockroach in our small fridge, the dirt on the floor! Everything is grubby bordering on disgusting! Stuff laying everywhere!!! The flies in the share main fridge topped things off!! Could be so awesome with some love!!! Interesting they don’t want pets with owners but happy for a cat bowl and food in foyer!!! Also feathers everywhere... the cat loves the property and our feathered friends as demonstrated this morning! The only positive was Mitch the groundsman who took us on a walk of area!! Very disappointing and suggest don’t book unless things change dramatically!!!

So very sorry, I am the owner and the care taker was looking after for the weekend. Re cats , we live in a rain forest and they are apart of that. The floors I find that hard to believe. Anyway, so sorry you did not enjoy but thanks to us the other 6 guests loved. We wish you all the very best in going forward.

The tranquility and views were the best. We left fully recovered and free of stress (after having our 8 grandchildren stay at our home). The very small wine fridge was inadequate and did not keep our drinks or cheese cold was the only fault.
