            Good for a few nights, but limited activities for kids”

            Our cabin had a good sized balcony, older style cabin and furniture, although clean. What wasn’t clean were the plates and cutlery (which seemed to be missing a few utensils). The second room was extremely tiny and would have done well to have bunk beds, although the size would be more than suitable for two small children. The swimming pool was not like it looks in the photo and it had ducks swimming in it early mornings and late evening, so we went to the beach instead. We were late checking in but the office was easy to contact and made check in easy with the lock box and keys and easy to follow instructions. Good for 1 or two nights.

            It was a quiet little cabin but has seen better days and the asking price for this raggedy accommodation is far too high. When I told staff about the broken hairdryer I was asked to consider whether I really needed it. The more expensive cabins seem ok but I would it stay in any of the older cabins again.

            Christmas getaway”

            Quiet, plenty of local wildlife, clean

            Place was empty when we arrived, despite being told we'd booked the last available cabin. Cabin was listed as waterview but we were at the very top hidden in bush land with only glimpses of the water through the trees - not very visible as all windows were dirty. Outside seating on deck was uncomfortable- everyone else's decks had chairs with arms. Kitchen area was good, but fridge took a whole day to cool down to right temp for milk, meat etc. When neighbours finally showed up they smoked on their deck which blew straight into our cabin. Maybe asking if people are going to smoke and putting them upwind would be a good idea. No internet connection available in our cabin despite being advertised as free wifi. Was told at checkin that it might be patchy, but totally unable to connect. Only tried to use pool once as hornet things flying back and fro across pool were scary. Prices were triple usual rate as it was Christmas but not good value. Might be value at its usual rate. Was great not to have kids running around. Don't recommend local Thai, they did deliver but food was worst takeaway I've ever had. All that said its a beautiful area and would recommend staying here if you got a good deal, love wildlife ( we saw koala, possoms, bush rats and the inevitable mosquitoes) and want peace and quiet 😝.

            Christmas getaway”

            Quiet, plenty of local wildlife, clean

            Place was empty when we arrived, despite being told we'd booked the last available cabin. Cabin was listed as waterview but we were at the very top hidden in bush land with only glimpses of the water through the trees - not very visible as all windows were dirty. Outside seating on deck was uncomfortable- everyone else's decks had chairs with arms. Kitchen area was good, but fridge took a whole day to cool down to right temp for milk, meat etc. When neighbours finally showed up they smoked on their deck which blew straight into our cabin. Maybe asking if people are going to smoke and putting them upwind would be a good idea. No internet connection available in our cabin despite being advertised as free wifi. Was told at checkin that it might be patchy, but totally unable to connect. Only tried to use pool once as hornet things flying back and fro across pool were scary. Prices were triple usual rate as it was Christmas but not good value. Might be value at its usual rate. Was great not to have kids running around. Don't recommend local Thai, they did deliver but food was worst takeaway I've ever had. All that said its a beautiful area and would recommend staying here if you got a good deal, love wildlife ( we saw koala, possoms, bush rats and the inevitable mosquitoes) and want peace and quiet 😝.

            Camping, decent, outdoor

            Decent, however it was more of a camping cabin kind of thing. The heater was good, kept us warm and comfortable.

            チェックインはフォームの記入もなく簡単なものでした。若干不安も残りましたが現地の人を対象とするリゾートモーテルのようで愛想よく対応してくれました。
