“Special Touches”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Instead of staying in Brisbane where a friends 40th was being celebrated, we decided to find somewhere close that was relaxing and romantic - Narrows Escape ticked those boxes. The cabin was well equipped and comfortable. The chocolates and welcome platter were unexpected but very appreciated. We didn't get into the complimentary local port but it too was a special touch, as well as the fresh roses and music playing on arrival. Would happily recommend Narrows Escape to anyone wanting to 'get away from it all' while still indulging in the hosts hospitality and thoughtful touches.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Dove cabin which was very private. Happily stay there again.

The hammock on the deck is a fantastic finishing touch, I could stare at the trees for days! The BBQ too is very thoughtful. We dined out at Reserve, which was sensational. The reception process you have for booking in is fantastic, seamless and so welcoming. I can hardly wait to come back. I'd love to experience this special hideaway i the winter or rain, it must be magical. An excellent stay!

“One of my biggest issues when on holidays is difficulty relaxing but from the moment I walked into Kookaburra Cottage I felt at ease. Everything about this place is peaceful and rejuvenating. Just what you want when you get away from work for a weekend. As far as we were concerned everything was perfect. What a hidden little gem."

Room Tip: The Kookaburra cottage was right on the creek.

 Would love to come back in winter, it is a beautiful spot, loved Layla and Toby's visits and the noisy pitta and all the other birdlife. Hammock on the verandah was so relaxing too!! The breakfast basket provided at the beginning of our stay was generous and delicious as were the fresh croissants delivered to our door! The surroundings were beautiful and we loved the rainforest stream. The service, accommodation and surroundings all contributed in creating the perfect getaway where all our everyday worries were left far behind!

“Dear Mark and Joanne - we had a most wonderful time here and only unwillingly return to the real world. Your quiet, considerate but so friendly service was great and the cabins are beautiful and just perfect for a romantic hideaway thanks for everything!

"This was the nicest place my husband and I have ever stayed in, we celebrated at The narrow escape for our first wedding anniversary. Honestly wish we could have stayed longer.
Had spa baths every night and it was very exciting waiting for your croissants that arrived every morning @ 8am and they are HOT!
Even wondering around Montville was nice we got to see candy being made.
If u want an absolute quiet,relaxed, chilled place with great service u have found the spot.

I surprised my husband for his birthday with a romantic getaway to Narrows Escape in October 2012 and must admit I was really pleased with everything! We were handed over a basket full of fresh food for breakfast, and then followed a 1h massage (additional booking). The bungalow was perfect, clean with all necessary conveniences, very nice bathroom with confortable spa, secluded location, down to the smallest touches - red roses, chocolates and Port. The only weak point was the swimming pool that was not very clean. We definitely look forward to our next stay...

Room Tip: Ask for the higher cottages, they are more secluded...
