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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

fantastisch
Figtree ligt in de buurt van het regenwoud. Het ligt prachtig. Je hoort alleen maar dieren, zoals vogels. De ontvangst door Mel was hartverwarmend. Ze zorgt ervoor dat je niets tekort komt. De ijskast is gevuld, nu ze wil dat je niets tekort komt. Kortom, een echter aanrader.

Just Amazing!!
Figtree Getaway is really amazing! The photos online don't do it justice. The Cabin we stayed in was beautiful & super homey! The open windows made waking up in the morning to the beautiful rainforest a dream. Mel & Chris are such lovely people. Anything we needed they went above and beyond to accommodate it. I look forward to coming back to Figtree Getaway soon! Thanks again Mel & Chris.

Friendliness and beyond. Amazing place.
This place and the owners, Mel and Chris are truly fantastic. Before we arrived we asked the owners if they could decorate the room a little bit to celebrate our daughters 7th birthday. We got an instant email back asking for her favorite colour and theme and then on the day they decorated the cabin, organised a cake with her name, changed the sheets into her favourite colour and she also got a present. The friendliness of Mel and Chris is overwhelming, they really go the extra mile. Well stocked fridges and drinks ( wine if you wish), marshmallows to toast on the fire; they really think of everything. And always happy to help with anything. Our best part was sitting in the evening with a fire near the peaceful private river, listening to the wildlife and seeing the platypuses frolicking in the water, then watching the marsupials wander around outside the cabin - an amazing experience. Our daughters best part was feeding the chickens every day. The place has a great quality pool table, darts, and nice hot tubs outside. Everybody working in hospitality should actually have to stay here, to see how it should be done. I cannot reccomend this highly enough and if we are to visit the region again, no doubt i would come back here. Simply fantastic!

So beautiful and relaxing!
Such a beautiful, relaxing location. The rainforest homes were spotless and the fridge was very well stocked for our arrival. Mel and Chris were the perfect hosts who went above and beyond. The area is perfect for exploring and the location is so beautiful. The river is nearby with a table and chairs for dining or relaxing and a fire could be lit there also. Abundant wildlife with us being lucky enough to eyeball a tree kangaroo! Platypus and turtles were active in the river an there was a chick coop which my son loved! Rooms were spacious and we had the one with the fire as it was winter and such a treat for us locals to enjoy! Cannot recommend highly enough. Definitely worth a visit. We will be back!

Quaint Cosy Cottage
Set deep in the rainforest next to the Johnston River just outside Malanda. Two cottages available one is next door to owners house the other smaller cottage a little further away. Peaceful and quiet owners are very helpful and friendly. Wifi is available, phone service spasmodic as is all areas on tablelands. Love how the owners have thought of supplies in the kitchen including chocolate, sweets, meat tray, wines etc included in your price. When I was quoted price I thought a bit expensive for the area but when we arrived and saw what was included it was reasonable and was happy with the inclusions. Love how it has air conditioner also as contrary to other places on the tablelands it does get hot and humid in summer although this is fairly protected by the rainforest. Definitely would stay here again as we have family on the tablelands nearby. It's almost like a cross between a farmstay (although only chooks and various wildlife) and B&B as its owners live on the property close by. We were invited to use the heated outdoor spa at the main house but declined. They also have canoe to access the river, and fenced play area for children.

A hidden little Gem. Very serene and relaxing. I would definitely return. I found the amenities akin to any resort on the coast in very peaceful surrounds.

Seclusion in the Tablelands
We have a lovely 3-night stay at the Figtree cabin. We used Malanda as a base to explore the Atherton Tablelands which worked very well for us. We appreciated the lovely breakfast hamper that was delivered to us each day and Cal did a wonderful job taking care of our needs. Having an evening fire down by the river was a highlight of our stay. It was fun to see the local wildlife although we missed seeing the platypus - we were too busy sightseeing.

Beautiful, amazing wild life and scenery, without a doubt one of the most relaxing holidays I've ever had.
If you intend to relax this is the place to be. The cabin is fully self contained with an irresistible rustic charm, with all the mod cons to boot; not to mention the beautiful views of the rain forest. It has a loft for extra people and a roomy front balcony. It's a short walk to the river where I was lucky to see a platypus!! We stayed four days and it wasn't enough. I loved my stay here and would highly recommend it.

Serene location on a beautiful property
Thanks Mel, Chris and Jordan for a lovely experience in the cabin on your gorgeous property. We loved staying there and getting to know you all was a real bonus - you're a wonderful, generous and warm family and you made us feel very welcome. The tablelands are really interesting place to visit - the old pub in the little towns are wonderful relics of bygone eras. Mel's recommendation of lunch at the Yungaburra pub was really worthwhile ... Is so gorgeous in there. The day trips to herberton and lake era am we're close and your place was a great base to explore the area from. Thanks again for having us - we hope to be back one day!
