This is a nice place run by nice people, Robert and Adrienne. The Hibiscus is in a quiet street away from main roads, so the nights are very peaceful, apart from the the bird cries coming from the adjacent rain forest, which plays host to a number of wallabies and their young and a large male cassowary, named Dad. The wallabies are around the house all day long, while Dad strolls past once or twice a day. Our bedroom was comfortable with a large ensuite. There is an air conditioning unit and a ceiling fan in the room. Coming from the south, we found the January heat and humidity a bit trying, so the we had the fan running all night - fortunately, it was a quiet one. There is no cooked breakfast, but the fresh fruit salad was delicious and supplemented the cereals, fresh croissants and toast . Adrienne also served up muffins. The Hibiscus has its own swimming pool which we and our fellow guests made good use of after a day's walking along the local forest and coastal paths. Robert and Adrienne are very hospitable and all guests were invited to join them for a cold drink on the back verandah around 6pm. They are good conversationalists and we learned a lot about them and our fellow guets. The Hibiscus is in easy walking distance to restaurants. We would definitely go there again.
