A peaceful adventure
Great stay. The road to the venue is tricky and hazardous but the mansion is gorgeous, Mitch is a really sweet guy and oh my, the view is fantastic. Perfect for a quiet retreat, far from everything. Literally!

A truely amazing place to stay. We loved the property: amazing views, the untouched rainforest, its peacefulness, the friendly and helpful service by the property manger, the facilities, its location to national parks like Springbrook. Highly recommend for anyone wanting get away from the crowds and to connect with nature.

The view is simply stunning.
Astonishing view from the retreat! You won't find much better views than this, in Springbrook, and that is from your room! The rooms are cute with a gorgeous bathroom and (clean) hot tub overseeing the beautiful landscape. The location is amazing if you want to be far from everyone and enjoy the nature. Remember to bring food as you're far from civilization. Also be aware, the last 5km to the retreat is uphill dirt road. It's a bit of a tough drive for city cars. On the minus side, the kitchen needs a good rub 'n scrub and the overall state of the retreat is worn, but that doesn't take away a very comfortable and amazing stay.

Thankyou so much for the incredible stay. Mitch welcomed us on arrival and was so friendly and helpful telling us local walks and suggestions. The view from the rooms is incredible. Such a nice touch that the fire was lit for us in the evening also. We will definitely be back- for the bathtub alone its worth it. Thanks guys

We came here with a 3.5 yr old to get away from the hustle and busy of busy reality and spend time in the close by Springbrook National Park. The views from this place were mind-blowing, the staff were also super attentive and had great local knowledge of the area and natural environment. Great place to feel connected with nature and feel at home. would defiantly come back : )
