After a long day of driving from Katherine and hitting all the swimming pools at Litchfield, checking into Rum Jungle B's was calming and relaxing. Butterflies flying around, shaded areas, cool pool - what a welcome and nice way to relax for a few hours. The cabin has all that you need for a quite stay and the breakfast goodies... More

We stayed here in July and it was a wonderful place. Sue was very kind and the bungalows are great. There is an area where you can cook dinner and have breakfast. The pool is small but great for a quick dip. We loved it!

'Perfect!' - We are always very pleased when people enjoy their stay at the Bungalows. You must have been brave (or from Melbourne) to have enjoyed a quick dip in the our shady pool! July is our coldest month, but can feel relatively 'hot' compared to southern climes! Thank you so much for your kind and lovely review. More

What a wonderful place. And Sue is such a friendly host. Self contained bungalows set in a mini lush tropical forest - you would never expect that turning off the road. Great decor, super clean and tidy, well equipped. Cosy, with a great patio in front that is sheltered by lulls tropical vegetation. A welcome breakfast in the fridge too.... More

Have just spent three nights at Rum Jungle Bungalows and this truly is a tropical paradise. Sue has obviously worked so hard to make it something special. The bungalows were perfect, the garden and pool delightful but more than that it was the little touches that Sue had added that made our stay so special. She gave us first class... More
