Stayed in Serendipity cabin for two magical days. Gorgeous cabin with lovely personal touches. Woodfire stove for warming and cooking (plus mod kitchen cons). Christmas Creek at your doorstep. Lamington Park walks 5 mins away. Perfect escape for couples.

My husband and i stayed here a couple of years ago (I'm a bit late to review). We took our dog and absolutely loved every minute. So tranquil and refreshing to be away from technology and in the rain forest in a gorgeous cabin. We've been meaning to get back but life keeps getting in the way.

I was looking for a cabin/cottage getaway for a few days of relaxing and unwinding. Wongari exceeded my expectations. Where others have gone wrong, these guys have got it all right... One of its best features is that it's secluded. Often these cabin/cottage set ups have multiple on the same property, so don't quite get the seclusion they say they...

If you're considering booking this cottage, DO IT NOW! This place is amazing! It is off the beaten track, literally! After a few km of dirt rough road (still manageable in a little sedan) you arrive in heaven. The cottage is set in rainforest and it is totally private. Christmas Creek runs straight through the property and you can hear...

My wife and I had a great long weekend away here. We loved the cabin and it's location, it is very peaceful there. While it rained all weekend it was the perfect weather for staying inside by the fire and catching up on some overdue reading. We will definitely be back for another stay at some point.

We loved staying here! The cabin was well-appointed with everything you need, including gorgeous hand made soaps, luxurious towels and bedding, everything you could want. We spent time relaxing on the verandah with a glass of wine, wandering around the property, and just reading or chatting. We cooked on the BBQ both nights but we also built a fire in...

The signs were obvious ,as we drove closer, were in for a hassel free couple of days. The phone lost signal, the bitumen turned to dirt and cows competed with wallabies for feed on the side of the road. We met Brad the owner at the gate down to the cabin. We arrived at our cabin of tranquillity and privacy...

Spent many days sitting by the outdoor fire, eating cheese and drinking wine whilst listening to the creek flow and the birds chirp -magnificent. Thanks brad and mark for being such perfect hosts and making us feel at home from the moment we arrived!

We really enjoyed our stay at Wongari. The accommodation was very tasteful . Comfy bed and a decent kitchen to cook in. We were surrounded by mountains so it is very private. There was a pristine creek on the property. We took some collapsable chairs down hung out and enjoyed a Swim. There were no others visitors . Hard to...
