Lovely host with a lovely and peaceful yard to stay in. The bathroom could definitely do with a clean though.

Edelweiss was lovely and very accomodating. Guest amenities (kitchen and bathroom) were new, clean and provided privacy from the main dwelling as the property was relatively small compared to other hipcamps we have stayed at. Many cooking utensils, fridge, BBQ as well as washing machine/dryer were available for guest use.
Upon our arrival a juvenile male cassowary jumped out of the jungle!! He also came poking around the next morning looking for breakfast.
Edelweiss provided mosquito coils, however I would recommend bringing insect repellent.

The place was nice and the owner very friendly, however, is not a powered campsite and the toilets need an improvement. Also, if rains you will struggle to leave the premises as the parking area gets really wet.
