We had the best time with Rob and his lovely wife at Rainforest Hideaway! It gave me the best feeling ever. Sometimes I felt like it was just me and the rainforest and nothing more. What an experience! The accomodation is really nice, clean and everything is provided. You see they put their heart into the place. We had lovely... More

Stayed here last night and absolutely loved it, was the best rainforest experience I've ever had. The outdoor bathroom of the room we stayed in was magic, showering with the rainforest as your backdrop - perfect!! Staff were so friendly and helpful, would recommend anyone heading up to Cape Trib to spend a night here!

What a magical spot Rob and his partner have. Fantastic to visit and be really at one with nature. What a good office to wake up to each day. The outside bathroom was really lovely. Seeing the fireflies in their natural environment was beautiful. Thanks so much

I had booked this with some hesitation - knowing that my wife might be nervous. I booked the room with the bathroom open to the rain forest! Rob has created a wonderful place over many years - away from the tourist trail. My wife's first reaction was very subdued! This changed, when we walked around the rain forest within the... More

If you are looking for a night "off the grid" this is the place for you, great hosts and an amazing location in the rainforest. We all need time to step off the tread mill and this is the place to do it, no internet or mobile signal - fantastic, enjoy!

We just had an amazing stay at the rainforest hideaway with hospitable friendly hosts. This is a unique and quirky homely place to stay. This place is a must stay. Fresh enjoyable breakfasts with good company. Hosts are only too happy to book tours. Abundance of local knowledge and information for guests.👍

This spot has everything. Not too many tourists. Wonderful sculptured trains. A casawary (endangered) joined up for breakfast. Best breakfast ever. Selection of unusual tropical fruits was breathtaking. It's simple but EVERYTHING you would hope fo right in the heart of the rainforest.

Happy to hear you enjoyed our place but I was a bit confused about the comment on the trains, future guests please note we have TRAILS through the forest, not trains.... More

We only had time for 2 days in the Daintree Rainforest and optimized our time by spending a night in the jungle tree house. It was fantastic - nice paths, creek, surrounded by bird songs all night. A place worth spending a week to escape the urban stress and get immersed in the beauty of the rainforest.

I stayed for two nights in the cabin with the outdoor bathroom. As an avowed city dweller this stay was a shock, a needed shock, to my air-con, vacuum sealed, sterile lifestyle. I love luxury and amenities and the little carpet you stand on at at the check in desk, and hotel safes and classy bars and key cards and... More

Happy t o hear you enjoyed your stay, and yes, this is a jungle retreat and I am happy you pointed this out to our future guests. People that have done their research and chosen us because they enjoy this style love it here, but we have also had the occasional city slicker that did not do their research and... More
