Our guests describe it as 'a dream'. The Lookout is a treetop rainforest hideaway, with breathtaking views. Set on Peel Forest Park home to countless native birds. The home is up high in the tree tops, with views all the way to the ocean. Secluded, private, warm, clean and comfortable. Here you can relax and unwind, in total privacy.  

Take a soak in the clawfoot bath, listen to the incredible birdsong, enjoy the stunning walking tracks on your doorstep.

In winter snow can create a magical scene. The home is very warm and cosy, well insulated, with wood fire and heat pump. All linen is provided, beds made and exit clean included.

We pride ourselves on ensuring your stay is a memorable one - let us know if you have particular needs.
