Loved the cabin in the rainforest. Storage limited and no clothes hanging space. Complimentary Breakfast and eating area great.

10/10 Exceptional

We absolutely loved our stay here. The moment we arrived we were blown away and welcomed in an easy going way taken straight to our rooms, which we appreciated as Antje & Ben had known we had travelled. The rooms and the whole retreat is absolutely breathtaking. Definitely what we expected. The hosts were ready to go above and beyond for anything we needed. Even helpful with booking tours etc. We felt really at home and looked after here, it really is the most beautiful place. Would go back here in a heartbeat! It was raining most of our stay and we still had a great time as just the resort was amazing on its own. The breakfast was amazing!!! So many options. I loved waking up to this every morning was such a treat! Just really great people and a beautiful family. A lot of beautiful detail put into this bnb. Keep up the great work Antje & Ben! We hope to be back. Matt & Stef

8/10 Very good

Nature surrounds you.
Our stay was amazing. With open fold back windows and no blinds or curtains, it felt strange. But there was complete privacy. The pool looked great but if you have knee or feet problems it was not safe to enter the pool. A handrail would solve that concern. Breakfast supplies were abundant, though a tea towel was missing.
The pool view while having breakfast.
Loved the vines.
No blinds or curtains but complete privacy.

We arrived during a cyclone and were greeted with umbrellas in torrential rain by Antje and Ben. Unfortunately the cyclone caused a black out but Antje and Ben offered for us to stay in a hotel in the city if we wanted to. We decided to stay and it was so beautiful listening to the rain looking out into the rain forest. The owners made sure we were safe and were attentive the whole stay. The breakfasts were amazing and it was a quaint way to order your breakfast on a slate. We cant recommend this place enough and will definitely be staying here on our future travels to Cairns.
