What a gem of a house!! If your after a peaceful stay in an all timber house surrounded by rainforest, then this is the place. The kitchen had everything you would need including s wok. With the house being solar powered, there is no air conditioning or a microwave. But that was of no concern to us as during the... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2015. The hosts really have thought of everything. The kitchen is well equipped, large and very comfortable. The beds are comfortable and have plenty of pillows and blankets. There is a pool table, DVDs, books. The best part is definitely the pool though! Surrounded by lush green rainforest, it is just beautiful.... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in June 2015. What a pleasant surprise-the house had absolutely everything we could have asked for! A massive kitchen with every utensil imaginable-even a contraption that made toasting on the stove possible. The fridge is huge, and there is more than enough storage and bench-space. The beds were extremely comfortable, and had plenty of... More

Beautiful house in beautiful setting, very comfortable and well-appointed for small or large groups. I highly recommend this property, and the excellent hosts. Unlike many hotel/B & B properties, this one does look exactly like the photographs on the website. Beautiful place. The expansive decks provided a welcome spot to watch and listen to the rainforest and its creatures, we... More

We arrived late because of flights screwed-ups all the way thru starting from Calgary. We did not know what to expect - i knew that house (B&B) had 4 rooms, so we thought will bw other people there besides us... When we came nobody was there... the main entrance was locked and we heard the phone was ringing inside but... More

Stayed at 'Wait a While' for 4 nights in early October with 2 families, total of 9 people (4 adults, 5 big kids). The house and the positioning was sensational. Firstly the house is very very spacious with many living areas. Large open plan living room with dining table to seat 10 inside, well appointed kitchen (note due to solar... More

Thanks Kerry for a great stay. We really appreciate your efforts to make us comfortable, from tips and advice to things like beach towels, individual soaps, and wifi too! No mobile coverage here was actually a blessing - the longest time I've been without my mobile in 10+ years (when not overseas)! Wait-a-While has a landline but apart from asking... More

It's definitely somewhere you can sit back with some friends, light up the BBQ and relax. The house was amazing and so big! Didn't get to try the pool out, it was a bit to cold, but the scenery is just beautiful. The wifi isn't very good so just be prepared to organise what you want to do in advance,... More

Completely surrounded by Rainforest yet with good road access this is ideal for families. There are three double bedrooms on the ground floor with fans and a further double bed on an upper floor. Two separate bathrooms on the ground floor. The living area is large enough to "swing a kangaroo" and was the perfect playground for our 20 month... More

This is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay. The house is luxurious and in perfect condition which is no small feat given the climate and the remoteness. It is huge so everyone has lots of space. There are no less than 3 big outdoor decks, 2 are covered for all-weather outside meals surrounded by pristine rainforest. In case of rain... More
