          Charming, quiet, romantic and lush! ”

          Just had 2 nights in the Bali cabin and had the best time! Steve and his family are really lovely and make sure you feel at home. The cabin is really comfortable, the views of mount warning and the cauldron are spectacular and the nature around is really amazing, with heaps of birds, bandicoots and wallabies. Great for a couples getaway, we climbed Mount Warning and visited waterfalls around the area and Nimbin. The barbecue on the deck is perfect to cook your own dinner watching the sunset in these awesome views. Great value, totally recommend it! Thank you Steve!

          Great location for holiday escape from crowed city life. Well facilitated accommodation (except lots mosquitoes and the rooms didn't have fly screens or aircon - bit hot during hot weather). Good for young kids playing around with the animals. Very friendly and helpful host. We were enjoyed of the time at the hotel.

          We had a wonderful stay over Christmas, 3 days , leaving boxing day. Hospitality is unsurpassed.”

          We were “Glamping “ , first time, took us a while to get used to , no communication with the outside world, once settled in - we really used the old medium Of talking to each other. We had a lovely light breakfast delivered every day part of the package , other options available. We left our car and loaded into a country tractor and trailer and trundled down to our Tent. Wildlife and birds in abundance. Lovely big comfortable bed- indoor/outdoor shower which was absolutely fantastic way to start the day. We have now reverted to their products which were supplied. Last of all Steve was a lovely down to earth super obliging host, we really enjoyed his company. We will return and perhaps try a different style. Highly recommended by my husband ( who is not very ambulatory) And myself. We did not go on any walks and trips on the property this time as we have to be driven. Next time.

          although it rained our entire stay, I loved it here. A perfect Balinese style villa comfy bed, windows all around the bedroom and views to die for!!! Wallabies hop around outside during breakfast, lovely simple breakfast, complementary sparkling wine. The only things to mention are that the TV is in a location not viewable from bed and remote barely works so we didn't use that, no mobile reception or wifi. But I loved it and I'm sure you will to. If I am in the area again I still stay here again

Steve the owner would do anything to make sure everyone was having a wonderful time. Everything was so welcoming, even the chickens who came to say hello every morning at breakfast. We can't wait to go back to try the Tent Glamping and have a bonfire with a few laughs with Steve and his family.

It was freeing to be away from technology, listen to nature, talk and play games. Steve was friendly, he dropped us off and picked us up from our tent.
