We had an amazing time. Everything you needed was there and not too far to local shop if need be. So quiet and private only the noise of nature. So many things to do no need for computers or TV total relaxation for all of us. The pool was a blessing! So sad the time came to an end. Can't... More

Great house, with a nice pool, close to an excellent beach. For a group or a family, this house is perfect. It is in the rainforest, so YES you are likely to see spiders, small native marsupials, and if you're really lucky, even bigger wildlife. Lots of doors and windows, so plenty of breezes. Every room has a ceiling fan... More

What a gem of a house!! If your after a peaceful stay in an all timber house surrounded by rainforest, then this is the place. The kitchen had everything you would need including s wok. With the house being solar powered, there is no air conditioning or a microwave. But that was of no concern to us as during the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2015. The hosts really have thought of everything. The kitchen is well equipped, large and very comfortable. The beds are comfortable and have plenty of pillows and blankets. There is a pool table, DVDs, books. The best part is definitely the pool though! Surrounded by lush green rainforest, it is just beautiful.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2015. What a pleasant surprise-the house had absolutely everything we could have asked for! A massive kitchen with every utensil imaginable-even a contraption that made toasting on the stove possible. The fridge is huge, and there is more than enough storage and bench-space. The beds were extremely comfortable, and had plenty of... More

Beautiful house in beautiful setting, very comfortable and well-appointed for small or large groups. I highly recommend this property, and the excellent hosts. Unlike many hotel/B & B properties, this one does look exactly like the photographs on the website. Beautiful place. The expansive decks provided a welcome spot to watch and listen to the rainforest and its creatures, we... More

Thanks Kerry for a great stay. We really appreciate your efforts to make us comfortable, from tips and advice to things like beach towels, individual soaps, and wifi too! No mobile coverage here was actually a blessing - the longest time I've been without my mobile in 10+ years (when not overseas)! Wait-a-While has a landline but apart from asking... More
