We were looking for a little retreat near Brisbane, before heading back to California. We chose The Narrows Escape over other places, because they have free wifi. We were so happy with our choice. Michael and Karen are wonderful hosts, very welcoming and helpful. Michael happily drove us up to the top of the falls so that we could hike... More

This luxurious and private accommodation was the perfect ending of our three weeks roadtrip from Melbourne to Brisbane. The hosts are very helpful and respect your privacy. Michael is also a great cook and we really enjoyed the dinner delivered to our bungalow. There is also a very nice pool area and some great walks into the rainforest: we drove... More

My husband and I headed to the Narrows Escape for 2 days to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Kookaburra cabin which is the closest and has a spa both overlooking the rainforest just beside the lounge area. We didn't leave the cabin for 2 days other than to head up and grab a couple of DVDs... More

Very relaxing experience- great to get away from everyday life for a couple of days and just enjoy each others company, the solitude, natural environment and wonderful service. The massage service and places to eat recommendations were excellent. I don’t think there's much more that could be done- all was amazing and greatly appreciated. From the welcome platter, flowers, awesome... More

We stayed here for two nights in December, we were over from the UK and stayed in various places around Queensland but our time at Narrows Escape was amazing and definitely the best. I don't think it could be improved, from the hamper on arrival, the port, views and daily fresh croissants I would recommend it to anyone. Also I... More

Spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary in the care of Mike and Karen at Narrows Escape and it was excellent. The attention to detail by the hosts was faultless and the accommodation was perfect. The wildlife was tame and King Parrots fed from our hands; Wompoo Fruit Doves and White-Headed Pigeons fed just metres from the cottage. Peace and tranquillity never... More

I surprised my wife with a relaxing and peaceful weekend away and we weren't disappointed. Mike and Karen assisted me with a romantic table and chairs by the creek including champaign and cheeses. Mike and Karen made the weekend very welcoming and easy for us to relax.

Loved the peace and tranquility and you provided so many lovely extras eg. music, roses, chocolates, port, cheese platter etc. We had a very restful time which was just what we needed. Our hosts Michael and Karen were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble for them.

Was the perfect place to stay in Montville! Our hosts were absolutely incredible and the freshly baked croissants every morning was soooo good!! The cabins are very private, tucked into the rainforest! We LOVED the bathrooms! The huge spa was fantastic, especially overlooking the rainforest! Cannot ask for a better place!!
