Tranquil bush cabins with all amenities including fresh baked croissants delivered daily to your room by Roscoe. Delicious breakfast basket, coffee machine. 8 couples holidayed here for a week while doing the Sunshine Coast Great walk (difficult). Nothing was too much trouble. Ali & Xochi were fabulous hosts - cooking for us, organising meals out & transport. We’ll be back!

Wow, wow, wow Narrows Escape is the perfect place to relax and unwind. We just got home from our weekend away and had the most enjoyable stay. Ali and Xochi are so friendly and welcoming. They had everything perfect for our stay from the beautifully stocked breakfast hamper and the delicious BBQ pack. Ali's crossaints are the best we have ever had. The bed was so comfortable and the scenery of the rainforest, waterfalls and birds chirping was just so peaceful. We will definitely be back.

What a treat Narrows was. Absolutely loved our stay and Ali and Xochi have gone above and beyond what we were expecting. We booked in for a last-minute kid free getaway to have some time to ourselves and get away from the hustle and bustle. We were met with beautiful scenery, lovely contacts and cozy tranquil space.
Don't second guess staying, Narrows is a magical little location.
Expect to see us again :)

We struggle with minimum sunlight / Dove cottage had minimal which meant lights on
at all times …. Damp musty smell/ air in the cottage also a struggle for me. We understand that is difficult to overcome in a rainforest environment. Goes shower screen dangerously clean 🤣 and we walked into it a number of times so placed a case in front as a reminder.
All sounding rather negative but we LOVED our Narrows experience.

Dear Andrew S,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Yes, being located in the rainforest, the rainforest canopy only lets the dappled sunlight shine through. It sounds like you still enjoyed the rainforest environment even though it is a little different to what you are used to.

We are glad that everything was sparkling clean for your stay and that you LOVED your experience at Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat.

We hope to see you again.

Best wishes,

Ali and Xochi

Relaxing in a spa bath in front of a fire. A hot shower after a afternoon exploring the near-by rainforest and waterfalls. Listening to water trickle off rocks, while relaxing in your own hammock on the patio, from Narrows own rainforest stream, right on property. Welcoming host, generous breakfast basket are only a sample of the joys that await a stay at Narrows Escape. A great place to unwind and spend a special moment.

Room tip: Don't forget so bug spray and sunscreen if you are going exploring.

What a beautiful, peaceful and tranquil place to escape too.
All we had to do was show up, and the rest was done for us. The food supplied was amazing! Xochi, Ali and their team make sure your stay is easy and stress free.
Thank you. Thank you. We will be back again.
