This is one of the most exciting places to stay. What an area, where the rainforest meets the sea. I would recommend this as a wonderful place to stay. The staff are friendly and you are really at one with nature.

Very good place to stay. Easy to get to but with a feeling of remoteness as if you are really in the middle of the rainforest. All furniture is handmade by the owner as the interesting sculptures along the trail which winds through the property. Different types of bungalows are available with different levels of comfort and different prices. The... More

Our Family stayed at this wonderful and magic place for two nights. Rob and his friends made us feel very comfortable. We enjoyed the interestingly designed rooms, the nature-near bathroom and all the sounds and smells. We tried tropical fruits for breakfast, fed the birds in the garden and enjoyed the jungle every minute. If you go there make sure... More

This was a very relaxing and wondrous place to stay. Rob was an experienced and effortless host - the breakfasts were truly delightful and were samplers for many of the local fruits we would not have otherwise tasted. The coffee was excellent (Dutch strength, thank you Rob!). We stayed in the room overlooking the frog pond with the outdoor bathroom.... More

Located pretty much as far as you can go north without a 4wd, the rainforest hideaway provided an excellent spot to explore the daintree. We had the room with the outdoor bathroom and it really was liberating. Rob and his partner provided a beautiful breakfast of tropical fruit along with cereals and toast. Everything looks like it was made with... More

Rob has done an amazing job with this place and works hard to maintain it. We had the cabin with the indoor plumbing because we were a little sceptical of the outdoor bathroom. However, everyone who stays there seems to enjoy the experience. Rather than eating in the guest lounge, we would prepare our coffee, toast and take this along... More

Just got back from a fantastic and unique two day stay at Rainforest Hideaway. What an adventure! Rob was a very welcoming host and the accommodation itself was fantastic. The breakfast of fruits was out of this world and worth the stay alone for just this! We got to see a family of cassowaries along with a whole host of... More

We didn't actually stay at Rainforest Hideaway, but at the Jungle house down the track - but we did enjoy the beautiful surrounds here - and the amazing sculpture trail. What a beautiful property and so full of wonderful wildlife, amazing sculptures and jsut a peaceful place to be ( if the sounds of nature are what you find peaceful)... More

A unique and wonderful place to stay. Rob is an artist who has built two guest houses and an art trail through the forest. The guest houses have huge character, highlights include a Balinese inspired outdoor bathrooms, hand carved wooden furniture and a lovely elevated guest lounge with balcony to the rainforest garden and water features.
