My partner and I often have trouble slowing down so we decided to stay at Cave Rock for a 3 day weekend that we both had off from work. What we found was a great and relaxing experience corner of the world that we would definitely recommend it to others. We’re already looking for a chance to go back.
We arrived in the afternoon to smiling faces (and a very friendly dog) who provided us with information about the surrounding areas and various relaxing activities that we could partake in.
We stayed in the spa cottage which included a handful of niceties that aren’t always standard. We spent hours in the spa and could sit on the balcony watching the birds in the morning or just lay in bed. We climbed up to Cave Rock and went for a swim in the creek which was a great way to get moving. We didn’t get a chance to try the fireplace, but are hoping to have the chance when winter rolls around.
The lack of television in the room and comfortable distance from Mount Tamborine really helped us to get away from normal life. The onsite massage therapist also helped us to relax as I almost fell asleep on the bed.
All in all I found that Cave Rock was great because of the freedom. We could do as much or as little as we wanted and owners were more than happy to help us achieve that. It’s not a feeling that I find often and I would love to return the next chance we get.
