We recently spent two days of our honeymoon here and highly recommend it. There are five cottages, each with a different theme. We cannot comment on the other cottages but the one we stayed in which was called the Pioneer cottage was excellent. It was immaculately clean with separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/lounge room. There were fresh roses in every room and the 'pioneer' theme included bits of rusted corregated iron on walls and genuine ancient artefacts throughout the cottage. The cottage was set within the rainforest and leaving some fruit out (which the owners had given us) attracted such wildlife as pademelons, rat kangaroos, bush turkeys and various brightly coloured birds. There is an open communal BBQ area with comfortable seating and a small stream and pond which also attracted various colourful birds. Indeed we breakfasted with the birds daily. Inside the cottage are books on the local area, and it's wildlife. There are also DVDs (free) available of either movies or wildlife documentaries. We had a truly magical experience there and thought it was well worth the price.
