Value
Sharlynn is a stylish and private self-contained cottage, which hugs the edge of the rainforest and the North Johnstone River. The river will serenade you as you dine on your very own veranda deck. The space has a seperate self contained kitchen stocked with a large variety of local produce for you to prepare a delicious breakfast. This area near Malanda quite often is visited by the Lumholtz's Tree Kangaroo, a very unique animal. Our river is also home to the platypus, sometimes shy, but often seen by our guests.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent home away from home!! with very cosy, warm, and private surroundings. Pam & John really take care and welcome their guests really well (with only one guest group taken up at any time). The cabin was located in a natural private rain forest resort with river and birds chorus in the background. The cabin was very well equipped with top rated fittings and appliances and loaded with all the goodies from local organic fruits and dairy supply. We, as a family of three adults, ended up spending more time relaxing in the accommodating than touring. It was the highlight of our five days trip.

The peace and quiet at this place is sereal. You have nature all around you and the river is just a stone's throw away. The breakfast supplies had a lot of variety and were plentiful. My wife is vegetarian and her tastes were satisfied too. John and Pam were also very helpful with local knowledge. If you really want to relax, this is the place to go.

Our stay here was amazing. It was so relaxing to sit in the spa bath looking out into the rainforest or sit on the balcony listening to the sound of river. The cabin was amazing and all of the little extra touches provided by Pam and John topped off an amazing weekend. We'll definitely be recommending this to our friends and family.

John and Pam De Rooy are the best hosts and we enjoyed fresh fruit and great Gallo cheese along with lots of other local produce. Set right in the rainforest and on the South Johnston River it is a beautiful location and there is a slow combustion fireplace to keep you lovely and warm on cool winter nights. It is a spacious appartment with a well appointed kitchen and a great bathroom with a spar bath which has a view of the rainforest along with a seperate shower. It's a great place to just relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounds.

We spent 2 beautiful nights at Sharlynn by the River in this outstanding accommodation with excellent hosts John and Pam who invited us to join them for coffee and cake each morning during our stay.They are both excellent and professional photographers who also run photo Workshops from their property. John spent an hour or so proudly showing us their beautiful patch of heaven-a 5 minute drive from picture perfect Yungaburra in one direction and Malanda in the other. He is a font of knowledge and is delighted to explain all the trees and birds that frequent this area. We could not have asked for a better place to stay and even though it was February (weather wise the worst time of the year to be there-with rain and humidity) it did not deter us one second from enjoying Sharlynn. Over many years we have stayed at countless Bed and Breakfast places in Australia,Europe and America and this one is very hard to beat.A kitchen stocked with every possible appliance to say nothing of the very generous supplies of food for breakfasts and more.The very best of organic eggs, bacon,bread,jams and all you could possibly want to make the perfect first meal of the day. The fast flowing river is only a 2 minute walk down from the cottage with its own resident platypus and what better way to laze the day away on the cottages verandah listening to the sounds of the river and the birdlife or to have a barbecue (supplied) al fresco! You would be lucky to find anywhere as good as this to spend time in the lush surroundings of the Atherton Tableland.Its almost as green as Ireland! Nothing bad could we say-its top of the class.

Perfect for a little romantic getaway. A real break from the hustle and bustle. A great point of difference is the local produce deal- we loved sampling! Great location because you can see the rest of the Tablelands.

Excellent stay with North Johnstone river only a few minutes walking to go for a dip. We even say playful platypus while chilling in the rapids. The cabin is 5 star , very clean, modern and private. So much food and fresh local fruit for breakfast was provided to our surprise. Pam and John are very friendly hosts. Highly recommend this place.
