This luxury camping rental is located on an island off of Queensland and is handcrafted from timber. It sits peacefully beneath the canopy of a coral tree grove with views of the Coral Sea. There is a double bed and a single bed, each with a netting or shade that can be pulled down around the bed at night. Inside, there are handmade benches and polished floors made from deep chocolate brown Daintree teak wood. It is decorated with artifacts from New Guinea, collected by the host throughout his travels, and has timber shutters on all sides. There is an ensuite bathroom and a sun deck, too.

This is an all-inclusive glamping site, and all meals, adventures, and activities are included in the daily rate.

The organic meals' ingredients include fresh seafood caught daily, and herbs, fruits, and vegetables that are gathered from the orchard. Breakfast is typically fresh fruit, homemade muesli with fresh, toasted coconut, and eggs from free range eggs. Lunch depends on the catch of the day, which can include dishes like steamed oysters with sliced ginger and lemongrass or a chilled squid salad with arugula and lime juice, chili powder, and coriander. Other options include tropical crayfish thermidor, battered barramundi, fresh grilled coral trout, and red emperor steamed with fresh herbs, sesame oil, ginger, and garlic. Dinner is constantly changing but always includes an appetizer, a main plate, two sides (typically vegetables), and a dessert.
