A lovely warm welcome from Lisa who helped with my bags and showed round the apartment. Located about a 10 minute drive from the walks in Lamington National Park, the apartment is in an ideal location for a few days exploring, walking and relaxing (you need a car). The bed was really comfortable and the linen and duvet wonderful! Even though heading into winter I was warm enough. Apartment was clean and had all amenities I required. I recommend a few days at Lisa's place!

Lisa and Andreas were a lovely couple who made us feel incredibly welcome into their nature loving piece of paradise. The granny flat was nice a cosy and perfect to come home to after a day of exploring the national park. Lisa was very loving and left delicious homemade cake for us also! We loved staying at this property and can highly recommend it to anyone who has a love of nature, campfire smoked food and babyfoot ;) Love Scotty, Nikki and Bubs

Lisa's accommodation is a nice private annex to her home and had all the facilities we expected. It is perfectly placed for a visit to the Binna Burra section of the park. If you have heavy luggage be aware that this must be carried down a very steep driveway, although Lisa offered to help and has plans to develop the driveway to allow vehicle access.

Binna Burra Zen Cottage is situated close to the entrance to the Binna Burra section of Lamington National Park with some great walking. The cottage is spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed seeing the wallabies and birds in the garden.

A lovely place to stay! We loved the fact it was only a 4 minute drive to Binnaburra National Park where the walks commence! Zen Inn was clean, compact and had all mod cons with plenty of hot water for much needed hot showers after a full day walking. The garden was a delight with many native birds making use of the flowering shrubs and bird baths. It is about a half hour drive to Tambourine or Mudgeeraba so make sure you bring supplies with you! The hosts Lisa and Andreas were friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome!
