When you arrive to your secluded retreat, you become immersed in a rainforest experience. Fireplace and just as a required backup ( aircon) , the GORGOUS comfy bed and of course the spa bath all added to our wonderful experience. We always call to this relaxing retreat in winter and so the times here are always cosy and cute. The BREAKY basket left at your door was spot on with cereals, juice, quich and toast and jams was a delight. Well done to the team at PETHERS, we will be back.

Really beautiful, clean, well furnished cabin. Gas fireplace was very romantic and practical. Along with the reverse cycle air-con, we were never bothered by the cool August climate outside. King sized bed and linen were very comfortable. We slept well! Spa bath worked well and we never ran short of hot water. All in all a very quiet, private and romantic adventure. Only stayed 2 nights and didn't want to leave! Highly recommend! AAA+++
