My husband and I spent 3 nights at this property with my 70 year old parents.
The property is a lovely log cabin located 3 kms from the nearest (unsealed) road. Lovely uninterrupted views over fields and gum trees.
The wrap-around deck catches both the morning and evening sun. The wildlife comes literally right up to the cabin. We saw 'roos, Tammar wallabies, birds and possums - mostly at dusk and in the evening. We even heard the koalas in the trees (grunting like pigs!).
Other than the wildlife noises, we had total tranquility. The starry sky is breathtaking, you can see the milky way with the naked eye as there is no light pollution.
The cabin is beautifully equipped with everything you could want - fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds/sofas, warm bedding, fluffy towels and generous breakfast provisions.
Be warned - access to many of KI's attractions, particularly North Coast beaches, is via unsealed, gravel roads - hire a 4WD!
