We absolutely loved our stay here. It was private, indulgent and relaxing. The surroundings are beautiful and we appreciated all the small details that were included. Thank you. We loved the breakfast hamper, there was more food than we could eat.

We have just come back from a lovely weekend (albeit too short) at the Narrows Escape - and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. We were so warmly welcomed, with unexpected delights such as complimentary roses, fruit basket, port and a cheese platter. On our arrival, we found the windows were open and the room was freshly aired, and music was gently playing from the MP3 player! These extra touches helped make us feel special.

Our hosts, Karen and Michael, went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Karen booked us dinner at a local restaurant (although we could have eaten "in" with one of the dinner packages they offer) and had even told the restaurant it was our wedding anniversary... so more special treatment!

The breakfast hamper was more than adequate, and the fresh, warm croissants delivered daily were delicious. We thought it was great that where-ever possible delicious local produce was used (juice, milk, yoghurt, wines and cheese)

The individual cottages, or chalets, are really well appointed with luxurious linens, high class toiletries and specialty coffees and teas. Each cottage is completely secluded from the others, and all you can hear are the birds in the rainforest. We were visited by beautiful parrots and a cheeky scrub-turkey.

We highly recommend the Narrows - it truly is an escape - and look forward to returning for a longer stay.

The only thing that was missing was free wi-fi access in our cottage - probably more of a sad statement about us than the cottage!

We stayed for one night and absolutely loved our stay. I can see why the owners bought the place. Excellence is in the details and at Narrows they thought about everything. Love the fresh croissants in the morning and the massages were divine. I would recommend a 2-3 night stay as we did not want to leave after the first night. We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: request for ''the dove'' cabin it has a wonderful view.

I almost want to keep this place a secret, Narrows Escape is so heavenly, especially for foodies. Our stay could not have been more perfect - romance, relaxation, nature, divine treats.

Listening to the creek bubbling from the hammock was so relaxing. Every tiny detail was anticipated and taken care of and after our magnificent lunch around the corner at Flame Hill winery, everything we needed was provided in the luxury cabin. We could not even eat everything! I can't wait for us to come back and stay longer so we can get to have the couples massages next time.

We stayed at the end of February for three nights and this is a very beautiful area. Cabin is very secluded. Michael and Karen are very welcoming they respect your privacy and are very happy to help. The cabin has king parrots feeding from your bird table and the ever present bush turkey. There is a lovely small salt water pool. The breakfast basket and goodies are great and crossiants are delivered daily. However we felt that the cabin we stayed in (Wagtail) was somewhat dated especially the bathroom and kitchen which was our only disappointment and why we couldnt rate this as Excellent. (Michael has said that all bathrooms and kitchens are being upgraded this year).

Stayed 2 nights last week. Everything was perfect. After speaking to Karen on the phone, she made every effort to get the cabin that would most suit us. We stayed in Dove cottage and it was just as described. Beautiful running creek which we could see and hear and very private (probably the most private of the cottages). Cottage was well maintained and very clean and well furnished (more modern that we expected). Had everything we needed to spend 2 days away from it all. Utilised both the webber bbq on the front verandah and the well stocked kitchen (gas burners and microwave) for all our meals. Only detraction for us was not having a dishwasher. For the price per night felt it should not be necessary to have to hand wash dishes. Wood fire was great and very cosy. Best part was the warm croissants delivered in the mornings as part of our breakfast !. All in all we felt we didn't need to leave the cabin for our entire stay. Very peaceful and relaxing. A retreat in every sense of the word and we are looking forward to returning but this time for a little longer.
