Try an overnight stay at Songbirds if you are looking for somewhere totally quiet and private and utterly relaxing and peaceful.. Our villa had everything necessary for a comfortable night and the spa was large enough to easily allow us both to stretch out and enjoy the rainforest and watch the birds right outside the window. We had attentive but... More

My Wife organised a surprise lunch and over night stay for my Birthday. She new I loved the place but we had not stayed over. On the surface it is a stunning property but scratch the surface and you will quickly find that it is jaded and in need of attention. Having eaten there many times over the years we... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments with us. As always we like to hear both the good and the bad as it keeps us at the top of our game. You say that the Chef was the only person who knew where the track was. You asked ONE member of staff who has been with us... More

My husband and I had a great stay at Songbirds for our wedding anniversary. Above all, the restaurant is of a very high standard. We have stayed about 7 years ago and received great service and amazing food both times. Thanks Songbirds for a lovely getaway once again.

I was on my way back from Byron Bay having had a disappointing two night stay in a retreat centre. As i walked up the path, I felt this was a beautiful place and one that would really soothe my, still, jangling nerves. It was just perfect. I picked up the key (after eating in the restaurant) drove round to... More

My partner and I shared a villa on a Friday night and were so impressed with the room and service. Lovely, peaceful location, wine on arrival to enjoy in the double spa bath, and a super comfy king bed! We didn't eat in the restaurant but the breakfast basket added a nice touch and tasted great. Will definitely be back... More

I stayed there with my partner for 1 night. Everything was perfect. Walked into the villa, it smelt of beautiful aroma, soft music playing (some sort of waterfall/bird noises) The lamps were on softly and when we arrived the lady at the reception desk was wonderful. The whole environment, the reception desk, restaurant everything was so calm and peaceful. Villas... More

My fiance decided to surprise me with a Valentines Treat Stay here this year. It IS a beautiful location but severely let down by the woman who owns it. Mistakenly thinking he had only one night (he had booked and paid for two) he was not corrected on checking in by the manager. He clearly stated we were there for... More

This is one of the funniest reviews I have seen. For those not in the know, please see the partner’s review below “Total Disbelief”. Apparently the food was fantastic, the Villa fantastic, the setting fantastic until… they realised… they had actually booked for two nights (as stated on our website, discussed on the phone and as the booking confirmation emailed...
