Loved the tranquil garden forest bathing and beautiful lighting. Close to Byron but far enough out to be really quiet.

Was turned away for having children and refused a refund. The staff were unhelpfull and rude. My family was then left without a place to stay. The site shows you in fine print that children under 12 are not welcome however they happily advertise that they are "FAMILY FRIENDLY" ???

We enjoyed our visit and highly recommend it. Wandy is a great host. We woke up to sound of birds singing and water dragon lizards sunning themselves on the decks.
