I stayed here as part of a backpacking trip for a weekend. The staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful, some of the nicest people I met on my trip. Their website accurately describes the set-up- huts with shared bathrooms at the top of a hill. You feel right in the middle of the rainforest, and can hear animals all night. Located away from the rest of mission beach, you can only reach the retreat when picked up from the carpark in their 4WD. Lots of walking to do around the area, the nearest beach is lovely and deserted when I visited.
The food in the restaurant was wonderful too.
I would definitely recommend the sanctuary retreat to those looking to get away from it all.
