Sharlynn is a stylish and private self-contained cottage, which hugs the edge of the rainforest. The river will serenade you as you dine on your very own verandah deck. We are pet friendly but dogs MUST be kept outside for health reasons and the comfort of other guests. Due to abundant wildlife cats are not permitted
