Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The Yurt was a gorgeous place to stay in and is the perfect place to get away, relax and unwind. Leigh was a great host! They put up a port-a-cot for our baby and made everything really easy. We will be back again!! Thanks Leigh :)

  • My boyfriend and I had an amazing stay at The Yurt, we did not want to leave.
    I would recommend this place to anyone who loves the simplicity and beauty of nature. We had total privacy whilst we were there and when we did see Andrew he was very friendly.

  • Great place to stay! beautiful surroundings and very clean accommodation. We saw lots of native birds and some sugar gliders too which was exciting.
    Thanks Leigh :)

  • The Yurt is comfortable, clean, cozy and private. It's a little outside of town, which we knew and planned for by bringing our own dinner. The Yurt comes with a bar-b-que and fridge so that's no problem. To get to this lovely space requires walking up a couple of flights of stairs - a little note for those who might heavy luggage (we just brought up what we needed for the one night we were staying). The Yurt is surrounded by forest and there is a large patio outside. A beautiful spot!

  • It was fantastic staying at the Yurt. My boyfriend and I just wanted to get away for a few nights to somewhere quiet and relaxing. This was definitely the place. Leigh was very helpful in giving us insight of what to do in the area, yet we also had all the privacy we needed. We saw a wallaby, possums and were lucky enough to see some sugar gliders too! We will definitely be back.

  • The Yurt was just as pictured and the perfect rainforest escape. A car is definitely needed but the surrounding areas are beautiful especially on the drive to / from Sydney when driving on the coast. Thank you Leigh for sharing the Yurt with us and we look forward to coming back sometime in the future!

  • My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at the Yurt. Leigh was friendly and showed us the ropes upon our arrival. We had our privacy and the place was simply so cosy that we mostly stayed around or inside the Yurt. The bushy outlook and surrounds were tranquil and the air was crisp. We also enjoyed feeding the many birds that visited. Overall a calming experience and getaway. Bulli Beach was a treat too. Thanks Leigh!

  • We had fabulous weekend stay at The Yurt with our 14months old! We had total privacy throughout our stay. Leigh and her husband were very welcoming and attentive. Lovely spot! Worth returning soon.

I am a Nurse and mother of 3 young children. My husband and I decided to host with Airbnb so we could meet people from around the world and share our special room in the rainforest. I enjoy gardening and birdwatching, entertaining friends and family and watching the children play.
