Firstly - the photos are real!!! That greenery and amazing seclusion is absolutely accurate - even better than the pictures. The open plan means you can see out all 4 sides of the building - nothing but green forest and wildlife. Lovely birds come to visit on the wrap around veranda, and the lovely water feature seen from the spa is so peaceful - birds often come to wash in the pond at the bottom. All this beauty can be gently flood lit at night time so you can continue to enjoy it (we discovered this just after lamenting it would be amazing to see it during our evening spa).
Even in great accommodation, there's usually a spider web of two, or perhaps a corner that isn't dusted regularly. At Myers Creek Cascades, every surface possible was gleamingly clean - everything spotless and impeccable.
The breakfast ordered for just 1 morning lasted us 2 and we didn't even nearly get through it all. The wood fire was so easy to use as everything was provided within easy reach. Plentiful selection of DVDs and CDs. Professionally cleaned spa bath (I'm usually sceptical about he hygiene levels of the spa pumps but this was perfectly clean). Plenty of candles with refill tea lights available in the kitchen. Modern kitchen with everything you could want. Amazingly comfy king size bed. Great double size shower.
We never return to accommodation as we like to mix things up and stay fresh, however we will definitely be back here and my parents have already booked to go. There isn't any Wifi and we actually couldn't get any cell reception apart from in a 1 metre square part of the accommodation where we could get texts but not calls through. But this just added to the getaway feel.
Minimal contact with the lovely owners which made everything feel like we were the only 2 people around. AMAZING!
