stayed in a rainforest one bedroom cabin which was set back into the forest.the aspect was excellent with plenty of glass walls to view the birds of the forest.the room was clean with enough space for two.being self contained we cooked our own meal and their were ample implements.one of our nicer stays in NZ and we were sorry we had not booked longer...however do not expect great service from reception, it was almost non existent.anything you need to ask check out the Information center as they were friendly and helpful.
