A rainforest haven

5 of 5
The Deck was very comfortable and felt like a home away from home, with everything there that you need for a happy, relaxing stay. The outdoor shower after swimming at the beach was fantastic and the huge deck was a great place to have a meal or just sit with a coffee and enjoy the beautiful environment. Wish we could have stayed longer! Will definitely be back to this area.
