My partner and I stayed here for our 4-year anniversary as we had already stayed for our 1st year anniversary. Since our first visit, we haven't found a single place that compares to the tranquility or romance we experienced here. The attention to detail and love that goes into preparing your room is evident as soon as you arrive and check in. We requested the 'whip bird' cabin as we stayed in this room on our first visit and loved it. They were able to accommodate for us and we were given a choice as to what went into our complementary hamper (which type of milk/what flavours of yoghurt/preference of fruit) and were walked to our cabin.
As you arrive to your room there is a beautifully relaxing mountain soundtrack CD already playing in the background. We had personalised chocolates for us (that were totally delicious), a cheese platter waiting in the fridge as well as firewood, matches and fire starters. There are beautiful rainforest noises constantly surrounding you and there is a gorgeous sky roof that provides a stunning view of the trees above you and which allows amazing natural light into the cabin. The hammock on the balcony also comfortably fit both my partner (who is 6'4") and myself at the same time. The wi-fi also perfectly compensated for the fact that there is no phone reception - however, being away from everyone may be part of the appeal.
During our stay we also visited the Kondalilla falls which is a nearby hiking track that has several local waterfall spots to visit. There is also a main street which has gorgeous boutique-style shops and lovely restaurants to visit.
You may think the Narrows is a little pricey, but when you consider everything that is included and the unique experience you'll have, you'll realise you can't put a price on perfection.
