We really enjoyed our stay. It was so clean and well presented, the chalet had everything that we needed. It felt like no one else was around surrounded by bushland. I loved everything about the it.

What a beautiful secluded part of the world. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to get away from it all. From the time we got there to the time we left this was truly a magnificent experience. The mouses house, chalets, location and staff are exceptional.

Guest from Sleeping Beauty Chalet (March, 2018)

TripAdvisor reveiw :

Absolutely beautiful part of the world to relax. This was our second visit to the mouses house. Both times staying in sleeping beauty and it was every bit as stunning as the last time. The chalet is perfect,very clean,comfortable and has everything you would ever need for a magical relaxing break. Unfortunately it rained the entire weekend (well it is rainforest! ) But this did not stop us having another wonderful time! Cannot recommend this place enough. If you want to spoil yourself and relax in absolute paradise, this is the place! Its quite a long way to the nearest shops so i recommend taking your own provisions but the hampers that they can provide are extremely good. Definitely worth a trip to see the stunning natural bridge while you are up there too. Thank you to the amazing mouses house again, and thank you to the fantastic staff for making our stay perfect. See you soon. ....

Hi there. We didn't fill in the ipad form while we were staying there....apologies...just forgot. To awed by our wonderful break away. We want to tell you that we haven't stopped "raving" about just how special the Mouses House is and to say we honestly couldn't think of anything that you could improve on to make it any better. Thank you for a wonderful mini holiday. We will be back 😊.

We absolutely loved our stay, our internet dropping out was tended to promptly and we appreciated this. We will be recommending the Mouse\'s House to everyone.

Email feedback :

Dear Wayne, Thank you so much for having us. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the mouses houses. It was hands down one of the best accomodation venues we have ever been to. You were so accomodating, informative and thoughtful. The breakfast was such a wonderful suprise. Everything was thought out and such a pleasurable experience we really did not want to leave. We will definately be back in the near future. Kind regards.

Overall, a beautiful place to stay in the relaxing environment of a rainforest. I have already highly recommended the Mouses House to friends and family.

iPad reveiw :

Dear Wayne & Christine, Sorry we forgot to do feedback on the iPad on leaving. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in King Louie on the weekend. We were just wowed with how beautiful the cabin was and loved the option of the indoor or outdoor spa. We were lucky enough To experience different weather and it was great to see and hear the rain so that we could experience the creeks running and the Sounds of the birdlife revelling in the conditions. The weather was cool enough to experience the fireplace which was nice. The artwork in King Louie was really impressive, so much so we tried to find the artists name on the internet but to no avail. Everything we needed was in the cabin and the bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept on. We have been lucky enough to spend time at some lovely accommodation and the mouses house is definitely one of our favourites' and Look forward to returning soon & possibly experience one of the other cabins which looked great on our walk around the grounds. I had to say a big thank you for some advice from reception on how to remove a tick I picked up on Saturday. We found Springbrook and The national parks even more beautiful than the Daintree we visited last year. We really can't find any negatives, only positives and look forward to staying with you again soon. Kind regards

A definite sweet escape from the hectic work life. It's truly a memorable stay in The Mousses for us and we will return, again. Thank you for this wonderful experience. Loved it the first time in 1991, again 1992 and still oved it 25 years later.

Snow White guests :

We loved our stay it is such a beautiful environment. From the moment we arrived front desk was very polite and informative. The chalet was very well presented on arrival and we immediately noticed the cleanliness of the chalet and all of the appliances. We have had an awesome stay and we will not only be back ourselves but also recommending to all our friends and family to come and enjoy this wonderful establishment. Thank you very much for a truly memorable honeymoon, 6 stars.

iPad feedback :

It was one of the most beautiful places I have stayed in. The whole experience, the fire at night, the spa, the deck BBQ and the retreat like atmosphere was wonderful. I've stayed at many places in the world this was one of my best experiences. Thank you. Shanelle Bennett

iPad feedback :

We had a wonderful 4 night stay in Sleeping Beauty, which suited us perfectly. During this time we were able to do all of the walks in the area, including the 16km Warrie Circuit on one day. After our walks, the wonderful spa on the jetty was so welcome and relaxing! The breakfast hamper provided was plentiful and delicious. Everything in the kitchen was well maintained, clean and easy to use and the outdoor BBQ was clean and worked very well for our evening meals. We would love to come back and stay in another chalet - although Sleeping Beauty was so comfortable, peaceful and relaxing we may return to her! Thank you.

Guest (Sept, 2017)

Snow White feedback :

We celebrated our honeymoon in the beautiful chalet and loved every second of it. The friendly staff and possums helped us feel very welcomed. We really never wanted to leave and hope one day to own a chalet and spa by the creek. Thankyou so much for sharing your wonderful destination with us.

iPad feedback :

We love The Mouses House, we have come back many times. We have stayed in a few different chalets, but Cinderella is our favourite chalet. We would recommend The Mouses House to anyone and we will be going back again next year

Guest (Sept, 2017)

iPad feedback :

My partner and I stayed in Dopey in early Aug 2017 and we were absolutely blown away upon arrival. The drive up among the stunning scenery was so beautiful and a great way to build the anticipation of the rain forest retreat! We dealt with the owner, Wayne when checking in and he did a brilliant job of explaining everything to us and made us feel very welcomed. We thoroughly enjoyed the wooden walkway through the retreat and stopped multiple times to view the streams and soak in the scenery before making our way up to Dopey. What an adorable little cabin Dopey is! We kept the glass door open (fly wire closed) to let in the crisp and fresh air, had the fire going, cuddled up on the couch while enjoying the birds singing and the wildlife walking around (a shrub turkey we named Kev). It was so unbelievably cozy that we were very sad to leave. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay here and would love to return in the future. Thank you Wayne for a wonderful experience!

This is hands down the best place I\'ve ever stayed. This visit was my third and I hope to keep coming back

Guest (August, 2017)

iPad feedback :

My husband Gareth and I had a blissful two nights and wished for longer. Snow White is a gorgeous chalet with stunning surrounds. It was a wonderful opportunity for us to reconnect, away from the hectic reality of our daily lives. Thank you - we will be back!!

Guest (April, 2017)

iPad feedback :

Our chalet, The Wicked Witch, was a good choice - so cosy, the stream so close and of course, the hot tub. Only downside the open toilet. Had not stayed at The Mouses House before but discovered the place about 35 years ago - although has grown since then. Told friends who have visited over the years but never made it ourselves. I think it is well-priced these days. Have seen ads in RACQ magazine. I would rate the whole experience a 5 and the information supplied was excellent - emails, pre-arrival, mini iPad, movies. This is out of your hands, but shame there is not a restaurant on the mountain where you could have a nice meal at night. We will be back - sooner, rather than later. Kind regards and thanks

iPad feedback :

Wayne and Christine, you guys tick all the boxes for a Excellence in our opinion and experience. Mouses House is truly a relaxing peaceful hideaway with amazing rainforest and animals which you have preserved beautifully with the chalets blending perfectly into the environment. We would come back here in a heartbeat! The walkways, creeks and tranquility that greets you the moment you arrive melts away your stresses instantly. It's a very special place we would encourage family/friends to discover and it's been wonderful place for us to celebrate our 34th anniversary. Kindest regards, 2 happy guests.

Thank you for an amazing experience. The cabin was beautiful and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back for many more stays! Tahli & Mitch (November-2016)

Feedback :

Thank you for a beautiful stay. We were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary and it was such a relaxing getaway! So peaceful and the visits from the possums (mum & baby) and bush turkeys was a real treat. The breakfast pack was delicious, even more enjoyable cooking it outside on the BBQ and eating with a lovely view. We will definitely be coming back again. Thanks again!

Thank you for the pleasure of being able to enjoy the chalet 'Sneezy'. We have enjoyed our stay very much and will be returning again in the near future. Sam & Taylor (October 2016)

iPad feedback :

Absolutily wonderfull experience, but as usual far too short, must spend a holiday week here. Deffinately a bucket list must! Happy Chalet (November-2016)

iPad feedback :

I just love staying at Cinderella and wish I could stay more. The peaceful surroundings let me recharge my energy, and have a peaceful time away from demands of daily life. I also love the active wildlife and feed many possums while we are there. Mother possum this year had a baby, but I did not get to take a photo while his head and leg were out of the pouch. Wayne is so easy to talk to and is helpful with anything we may need.

Cinderella Chalet (September-2016)

iPad feedback :

A little piece of perfect rainforest seclusion with luxurious amenities. Do not believe Mouses House could be beaten. Dave and I thank you both very much and we will be returning.

Snow White Chalet (September-2016)

iPad feedback :

This place is just heaven. It is perfect for those who want to get away from the noise and craziness that seems to fill our lives. My husband and I have never felt so relaxed and we have thoroughly enjoyed our 5 night stay here. Staff and facilities of each chalet is amazing, so cosy and warm sitting cuddled up on the couch next to the fire. This definitely wont be our last visit!

Snow White Chalet (September-2016)

Returning guests feedback :

The use of the iPad is a wonderful idea - makes it so much easier to look things up without having to go and ask. Wayne was (and is always) extremely helpful and courteous and nothing appears to be too much trouble. If he says he will do something it is done. Every time we come our room takes our breath away - it is clean, tidy and every little thing is thought of. Also there are subtle changes on each visit whether it be a new vase on the table or a new clock. For us this means they are constantly looking and updating the room. We definitely recommend to all and sundry. From Brendan and I, thank you again for the most wonderful stay we experience each and every time.

Michelle (August-2016)

Dopey chalet :

Our stay at Mouses House Retreat has been sublime and the relaxing at the fireplace or the hot tub was exactly what we needed to celebrate my partners birthday and our recent engagement! You provided homely chalets and solid sleep nights. Everything was perfect and were busy planning our return. Thank you for a beautiful experience!!

iPad feedback (August-2016)

Grumpy chalet :

Great service. When we arrived Wayne gave us a detailed understanding of how to use the chalet and what attractions and restaurants were around. The chalet itself was generously sized with a extra room at the top in the attic area. The design of the chalet is pretty awesome with a roomy kitchen, lounge area, bathroom, fireplace and extra room with a spa bath.

iPad feedback (August-2016)

Belle chalet :

Such a wonderful experience. Everything lived up to our expectations. We did not want to leave and can\'t wait to go again. I think a few visits are in order just to sample the different Chalets. Though none will compare to Belle.....

iPad feedback (August-2016)

Doc chalet :

Absolutely loved our stay at The Mouses House. Loved, loved, loved being totally surrounded by all of the trees/nature. So peaceful. I would so recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet getaway. 10/10.

Jason and myself will definitely be returning. We had a wonderful time were we could just feel like the only two people in the world away from all the hype and really feel like we got away. This is a fairy and magical land and we just are so excited to know we will be returning. Thank you for everything. This place is divine, the service and the people were gorgeous, the setting is majestic!!!! Thank you....

Warmest wishes Maria and Jason xxoo (June-2016)

iPad feedback :

Great relaxing way to spend our three year anniversary. We could not have asked for a better location, beautiful chalet nestled into the amazing rainforest with the flowing stream providing constant natural music. The weather was cold and wet, so it was perfect to get the fireplace going and snuggle in near its warmth. Cooking out on the private veranda let us meet one of the locals a Mountain Brushtail Possum

Prince Charming guests (June-2016)

Guest feedback :

Hi Wayne & Christine, We had a great time. The Chalet was immaculate and you guys had everything sorted out for us with your e-concierge, from nearby attractions to how to light the fire place. All in all we had a wonderful experience.

Thank you, Ragu & Aarnika (June-2016)

iPad feedback :

We had an excellent weekend stay! The cabin was absolutely beautiful and so well prepared for our arrival (it was clean, had lots of firewood, etc.). There were eight adults staying in our cabin (the Doc) and at no point did it feel like we were cramped for space. Wayne was extremely accommodating with respect to our arrival needs- coming up from different cities at different times after work Friday, he was really flexible and helpful with finding suitable places for us to park on site. We would definitely recommend Mouses House to others and will be back to stay ourselves in the future!

Anonymous (June-2016)

Thank you again for our stay. Sleeping Beauty was in immaculate condition and we liked the updated furniture (last stayed in 2011). The wifi was spotty but that was the only issue. We appreciated the fact that you even had wifi - most places don't, so we weren't bothered by that very much at all. I love that the hand written guest books are still in the chalet because I got to see our entry from 2011! Please never remove them :) The Mouses House, specifically Sleeping Beauty which we always choose, is the most magical place. Absolutely beautiful. The fireplace and outdoor hot tub are my favourites, and the indoor one too. We can't speak highly enough about the Mouses House, the service, the environment, the chalet, location and everything else.. Thank you again for making our getaway so memorable.

Regards - Catherine (June-2016)

Dear Wayne

Hi Wayne and Christine

Regards Donna and Vic (May-2016)

Absolutely magical

This place is beyond what we imagine. Thank you so much for providing such a beautiful chalet for us to stay in surrounded by the most glorious rainforest. We will be back for sure! (May 2016)

Hi Wayne

Just thought id send through an email to say how impressed we were with our stay from Monday 25th-Saturday 30th of April. We looked at a few places and we are so glad we chose the MousesHouse for our Honeymoon. It was just divine - we came back home feeling well relaxed. We will definitely be back - thank you for such a lovely stay.

Naomi & Peter (April-2016)

Thank you so much for such a lovely vacation! We absolutely loved our time here. The econcierge was very helpful, quick videos were a great idea and made the level of seclusion even greater :-) Wayne was lovely to deal with and very helpful! Will definitely be planning a return trip

Hi Wayne and Christine

Hi Wayne and Christine. Thanks for the follow up email requesting feedback this morning. Myself and Wife Jen stayed in 'Snow White' on monday night. You must get slightly bored with - or at least desensitised to – all the gushing compliments about your place, but nonetheless here we go again! I reckon you could run the place in the manner of Fawlty Towers and Mouses House would still succeed, given its astonishing location and atmosphere. It's an absolute credit to yourselves and your team that your attention to detail, and gesture, is stellar. We can only imagine the work that goes in to maintaining the properties, both short and long term, and keeping the bar high. So massive kudos to all! And many thanks.

Review by Graeme M (Mar-2016)

We've never seen somewhere so perfect! We spent four nights at this beautiful place and were sad to leave! It's so peaceful and quiet. We can't wait to go back!! It is worth every cent!

Review by Ashleigh F (Jan-2016)

Enquire website

I highly, HIGHLY recommend this location! The retreat was the best place for our honeymoon. We'd always dreamed of going to a little cabin and that's what we got - but a very high quality one! All the chalets are named after the seven dwarfs and have a walkway through the rainforest with enough space between each to make it feel private. You're given your own kitchen and can order food baskets to cook up which was really enjoyable. We were also provided with a large range of movies - may have watched quite a few! It was great to be able to sit back and relax after such a busy wedding week and this was the perfect calming environment. There's some lovely lookouts, walks, waterfalls, cafes around and a town not too far off to get groceries and fuel etc. It was a beautiful cabin and location and we had the best time and didn't want to leave. We can't wait to go back one day.

Review by Zoe S (Nov-2015)

Hi there,

Just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for an absolutely wonderful weekend; Sleeping Beauty was everything we could have hoped for. The food baskets were plentiful and very fresh, the service from everyone encountered was outstanding. The i-pad and its contents was a great touch. It felt like we were in a perfect world all of our own. We can't wait to come back!! Kind regards,

Review by Lawrie & Rachel (Sept-2015)

Dear Wayne and Christine,

All I can say is the mouse's house is incredible. You are fantastic host's and should be very proud of your retreat. Both Pearly and I have never felt so relaxed. We will be definitely coming back. You have one of the greatest retreats around.
Thank you so much for everything. Prince Charming was incredible. Love the wildlife. Thank you again.
