I left a noisy dank guest house and checked in here hoping for cool calm. I was so thrilled to see the vibrant green gardens, aqua pool and gorgeous, airy verandahs of the colonial style centre house. The staff are friendly and unintrusive, and more than happy to organise personalized tours and spectacular tasting, fresh cooked meals on request at very reasonable prices. At night the place was silent except for the chirp of tree frogs. The decor is sublime but unpretentious.
The Cockatoo for me was a real find, the best of my long holiday, and I would go back in a heat beat.
