We picked this place because of its mention in a guidebook and a recommendation from someone in a local nature reserve. It is a fantastic place right in the rain forest with lots of opportunities to see the wildlife of the wet tropics. The owner, John, was very helpful and is obviously doing this because he loves being there rather than to make lots of money. The rooms are spacious and it is easy to live in them and prepare your own food for several days, which is what we wanted to do. The price is quite reasonable compared to other similar establishments in the area. It is an older establishment but everything we wanted to use was clean and in good repair. It is also inside the rain forest so humidity and insects are going to be part of the package. No mosquitoes though.
