I can not recommend John's place highly enough! Even though we are Cairns locals, my partner and I felt like we were a world away from our working lives in this luxurious private cabin. A real romantic retreat with many thoughtful touches throughout including sumptuous breakfast goods, well appointed kitchen, generous spabath and bathrobes... Great location from which to explore the Tablelands and our dog felt right at home with friendly Charlie and we all enjoyed swimming in the creek at the bottom of the property. Check in/out was a breeze and we enjoyed John's hospitality with a barista style coffee on their verandah before leaving. Will be sure to return!

A truly lovely place to stay and get lost in your head. The forest is literally at the edge of the large verandah. The river is a one minute walk down the not-too-steep hill. And there are places to sit, eat and rest strewn along the path. And a nice sized waterhole in the main stream of the river to swim in, or use John and Pam's inflatable. Everything was sophisticated, clean and comfortable. In the fridge was lots of stuff for breakfast and snacks ... and on the severe was a large selection of fresh fruit. Bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom a delight to use. We'll be back!

Glad you enjoyed your stay at Sharlynn and thank you for the great feedback. With the warmer weather coming a swim in our river pond is truly refreshing. You are welcome back anytime.

This place assists with relaxation and rest amidst nature's beautiful rainforest and only a few steps from the river. A stay here is so good for the soul. The accomodation has all you need plus more and the hosts are very welcoming.

We have had two days of magic in a most beautiful part of paradise. John and Pam made sure that ever thing was perfect in every regard. If you want peace and quiet, a close touch with natural, wonderful chats with great people or just somewhere central on the Tablelands, treat your self. Stay at Shaylee - we will be back.
