What a unique place on the edge of civilization. The owner, Rob, has created a wonderful, comfortable experience to make you feel at one with the surrounding rainforest. We stayed two nights in the detached bungalow with the outdoor bathroom. Very cool! Rob was a gracious host and served us delicious breakfasts of tropical fruit, most of which we had never had before. He has built creative sculptures on a set of trails through the property, which add to the interesting atmosphere. At night, you can hear the jungle come to life, including bullfrogs and other animals. We just missed a cassowary encounter while we were there. Oh well. It was still a memorable experience, and we were sad to leave.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Unique accommodation deep inside the world's oldest rainforest. Solar powered eco-accommodation without some of the luxuries and facilities of the big resorts, but comfortable and located within walking distance of beach, restaurants, shop and National Park boardwalks. On the two hectare property there is a sculpture trail showcasing sculptures created by the owner and several visiting artists, fishponds and a beautiful freshwater creek. This place is owner-built and owner-managed, and your host is always happy to provide you with tips on where to go and what to do and book any activities you'd like to do. Prolific wildlife is another feature of this property, especially the cassowaries that frequently visit the place. You can make your holiday action-packed with the local tours such as snorkeling, jungle surfing, horse riding, sea kayaking etc. or total relaxation by hanging out on the property on the seats on the sculpture trail, or in the hammocks around the house. Keep in touch with the outside world through free Wifi. If you are an artist you might even like to add your own creation to the sculpture trail. ... more less
