Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.

Nestled in the foothills of Middle Brother National Park, a secluded nature paradise awaits. Sunshine frolics, waterfall showers and endless birdsong abound as you travel back in time to a retro 1960s commune tucked away in our private, sprawling mountain lair and wildlife sanctuary, set in 200 acres of magical Rainforest Conservation Land.

Cute little unit in the most beautiful location. Patio backed onto the orchard, stunning first thing in the morning with the morning frost! Fast and clear communication. Perfect spot for our stopover on our road trip.
