Peaceful, simple, beautiful

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Aug 2015
While the terrace itself is very simple, it is set in a beautiful location with a pathway right down to the lake. Plenty of birdlife to relax you in the afternoon, or help wake you up in the morning. The staff here are incredibly friendly and seemed more than happy to help with anything at all.

Good views from the 2 bedroom villa but everything needs updating. Small TV's, supposed to have Foxtel but I couldn't make it work - no guide/compendium in room to assist. Very basic self catering facilities - OK for two of us I used one hotplate and one frypan but I wouldn't want to try and cook a family meal.

We stayed in winter there was no heating it was 4c and FREEZING in the room

In general everything needs updating and/or replacing.

No nearby restaurants or take away - bring food with you (pre-cooked may be easier just heat up?) or use the BBQs onsite

Room we stayed in (above reception) was absolutely disgusting! It was dirty - tried to get a refund and he said "your cleaning standards are different to ours". Everything that I mentioned that was wrong with it - there was always an excuse. Even the reception itself is in a disgusting state. Definitely not recommended - personally I felt dirty and unhygienic staying in this place. Cobwebs, animal poo and dust everywhere! There were even cobwebs in the shower. The floor was flimsy and felt like we were going to fall through! Worst accommodation I've ever stayed in. As a business, they have a responsibility to stick to standards in which their products comply to and this definitely did not.

Room tip: Disgusting - don't go in room one above reception

Only stayed one night wish I could have stayed for a week.

Great views of Lake Tinaroo from your private balcony sit out there and drink a glass of wine or a beer or two eat your breakfast or just read a book.

My upstairs bedroom you could lay in bed and look out over the lake down stairs there was a pullout double bed and bunk beds.

Very hot in Cairns 37+ but up here was nice and cool

Reviewed 24 August 2014

The unit we stayed in was a little colder than expected (we were there in winter, though) as the wind can blow down the valley. The facilities are a little run down (the BBQ is not working 100%). The unit is quiet, and it is a nice weekend breakaway. However is are no mobile signal, unless you walk up the hill. There is a cute little beach in front of the units.

I am not a cleanliness nut but our unit could only be described as grubby and because of that it was hard to enjoy our one night stay. The actual building looks attractive from the outside but leaves a lot to be desired. Cooking is difficult in the little galley kitchen provided. We also found it difficult to locate as directional signage was virtually non existent.
