“Relax in the rain forest”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

My wife and I stayed for 2 relaxing nights at Sharlynn and would continue the high recommendation of this B&B. Sharon & Eddy are indeed extremely welcoming and generous hosts, they provide you with privacy as well as a sumptuous breakfast hamper, and are more than willing to help with localised tips for guests unfamiliar with the region. Location is just a 5 minute drive to Malanda and only 10-15 minutes to Yungaburra and the property is well signposted from the main road. The main deck extends right along the front of the building and beyond into the rain forest, and provides the illusion of being suspended within the surrounding bush. This B&B is well appointed and provides a real "home away from home" atmosphere.

Room Tip: This B&B is open plan so is ideally designed for couples

We only had time for an overnight stop, but wished it had been longer once we stayed at this wonderful B&B - secluded, restful location overlooking the river, every requirement met from Wi-Fi hot-spot to fabulous breakfast hamper, and the extra touch of fresh flowers in rooms. Attention to detail is everywhere and Sharlynn B&B is definitely up there with the best we have ever experienced.

We have been to Sharlynn now several times over the years and the level of service and friendliness from Sharon and Eddy is always 10/10. This is how a B&B should run and interact with their customers

Sitting on the back deck of the cabin over looking the tree's and the river below is magic.. I echo the comments from the other reviewers

We like to walk and Lake Eacham and Bareen are close by and they add to the magic of Sharlynn having beautiful locations close by. If you want to explore the Atherton Tablelands Malanda is within an easy drive of all centres.

Negatives there are none we love going to Sharlynn

Fantastic location set amongst the rainforest. Sitting on the balcony you can hear the North Johnstone rapids below you with the voluminous bird life surrounding the cabin. Not only is the setting spectacular it was the attention to the small details that made it special for our stay. The price of this B&B was well below what we have paid for less spectacular stays then this. We will definitely be revisiting. Thank you Sharon and Eddie for making our stay memorable.

We have loved our two stays here and cannot wait to book our 3rd!!
Cabin overlooks rainforest with sounds of wildlife and creek. We took our little maltese pup for a swim in the creek, which was so refreshing on a warm day. Cooking a bbq on the deck and eating outdoors with our little family was lovely.
However visiting in winter was just as great, by being able to light a fire in our cabin and cooking a meal indoors. Massive spa in bathroom with a glass of complimentary port was magic!!
The hosts are so friendly and full of hugs for the greeting and farewell. Feels like a home away from home.

Sharlynn B&B was a great find. The cabin is much larger than most we have stayed in and the bed was really comfortable. The front deck overlooks rainforest and the sound of the creek is wonderful, though only minutes from Malanda. The cabin is very clean and has everything you need. Thank you to Eddie and Sharon for being wonderful hosts with heaps of ideas and hints in making our stay so enjoyable.
