We were visiting Glass House Mountains from the UK to see our Daughter, Son-In-Law and 3 Grandaughters. We stayed for 20 Nights, from 20 June 2013 in the "Mango View" Cabin, which has the necessary fully wheelchair accessible toilet/shower. Owner, Brett, could not have been more helpful. He rearranged his bookings so that our long stay could be fitted in. When we arrived he helped out with further wood for the wood-burning stove which made the place very cosy on chilly Queensland Winter evenings. There was a regular supply of clean linen. Brett also very kindly pumped up a flat tyre on the electric wheelchair, which saw us through a week in Adelaide after we left and is still going strong! It is a lovely quiet setting in a Macademia Grove with a variety of birds heard and seen. Cloudless nights are stunningly beautiful and magical, with the South Cross, a myriad of other stars and often the Moon high in the sky. We also saw a possum and a bandicoot (at night on arrival back at the Cabin by car). The main Glass House Township is close and has a Grocery Store, Pharmacy,Post Office and a variety of other small shops/cafes. There is also a Rail Station, Bus Service and Local Taxi.
We stayed here last year on a similar trip and are hoping to do so next year.
