“A wonderful relaxing place to stay”
Reviewed 15 September 2009

From the minute we entered our cottage 'Butcherbird' you could tell Mark & Joanne had put a lot a thought and effort into making The Narrows Escape a special place to stay - from the welcome platter, chocolates and flowers to the brilliant breakfast hamper and fresh croissants delivered daily. Our cottage was indeed self contained and again Mark and Joanne had thought of everything, even down to the Mozzie Coils and spray oil for the BBQ. The setting was beautiful and was enhanced by the daily visits by the King Parrots and of course Toby and Leyla. We could thoroughly recommend The Narrows Escape to anyone wanting a special relaxing time away.

Our weekend was the most memorable ever – don’t want to leave, could live here permanently. Like being in heaven. It was absolutely perfect. Definitely has the Wow Factor. The warming open fire was so relaxing, locals very friendly, just the perfect locale and the dogs made us most welcome enjoying our breakfast titbits.

My husband and I have just had the most wonderful weekend away at The Narrows. The location is perfect, as is the service and cabins. Far exceeded our expectations. The service provided by Mark and Joanne was spot on. We had a BBQ hamper on our first night and the seafood platter on our last night, both were delicious. The extras provided such as the plate of nibbles on arrival, port, chocolates and the lovely cabin made for a very special experience. The cabins are lovely, much bigger than we expected. The fire place kept my husband entertained each evening and by the 3rd night he had mastered it! The spa bath was great, the lovely surrounds, the creek running past our cottage all made for a wonderful weekend. We have already booked our return visit and I can see that we will be regular guests. Be ware of the teddies though, you become quite attached and end up having to buy them and take them home to sit on your own bed.

A most enjoyable stay-everything is thought of by our most attentive hosts Mark & Joanne.The beautiful fruit platters,welcoming nibbles,lovely croissants,replenishing the wood supply, top quality bath products,and the relaxing drinks after our somewhat disastrous flight ! Mark even stayed up to 1.30am to welcome us upon arrival after our Jetstar flight from Melbourne was 6 hours late for a 2 hour trip! The only negative would be that the bathroom in our cottage could be in need of an up-grade c/f to the pictures of the other cottages, especially the spa.Montville was so lovely and Zana's restaurant was superb-great food,service,hosts, guitar,views etc. Thank you Mark & Joanne for such a relaxing, pampered holiday

We needed a peaceful, welcoming and relaxing environment - we were not disappointed. The tranquility and extreme stillness makes one feel the oneness with nature. A highly recommended getaway - there is an excellent masseur at the top of the hill by the name of Anna!

“We've stayed in similar accomodation at Treetops & O'Reilly's but definitely found The Narrows Escape far superior. Attention to detail here is lovely. Absolutely every comfort is catered for. The aromatherapy products throughout the cabin are a beautiful added touch. Mark and Joanne provided delicious fresh food which was very much enjoyed and of course we loved the beautiful native birds and animals that visited us at the cabin. We totally loved our stay here and were very sorry to have to leave. The combination of the luxurious, peaceful cabin and the gorgeous rainforest are simply unbeatable."

We love it here! This was our third visit to The Narrows, and we plan to return again In May 2010. Mark and Joanne have achieved a beautiful balance between making us feel welcome and still maintaining our privacy. The gourmet dinner hampers were delicious. I believe we ate everything on the menu during our two-week stay, and still had some wonderful dinners out in nearby restaurants! (The Spirit House in Yandina is a must!) The hinterlands are truly a remarkable part of the world, and the Narrows Escape is definitely the place to stay.
