From the Guest Book

We had an enjoyable and amazing time

We had an enjoyable and amazing time - coming face to face with a cassowary on the path to the beach, massage, yoga, fantastic food and a wonderful atmosphere away from it all - worth coming 10,000 miles to experience.

Ingrid, Nigel, Alice, Harry & Thomas Popplewell - December 2005

Yoga was great

Thank you for being everything I had hoped for. Yoga was great - my muscles are still rejoicing!

Jo Everett & Helen Knox - February 2005

What a lovely experience

What a lovely experience - A tropical rainforest, great company, food and drink - and a tropical storm too! Fantastic!! Our stay was definitely the highlight of our holiday and to experience all of this at such a reasonable price. Thank you.

Thanks so much for a little bit of paradise

Word of mouth brought me here & if I can help others find this gem with my sincerest raving, I will. Thanks so much for a little bit of paradise.

we enjoyed the unique experience

You've cleverly balanced accommodation for both 'the stressed out seeking comfort' and 'adventure seeker' - we enjoyed the unique experience.
