We stayed 2 nights in the jungle house and it was a great experience. The jungle house is down the forest from the main residence and beside a river. It is pretty basic but totally unique. The table and benchs are very rustic and you can relax in a couple of hammocks in the main room. You feel like you... More

We stayed for two nights in the jungle house, words cannot explain what a great experience it was. Yes its basic but hey thats what is all about, there is just enough to make it comfy without going over the top. The whole resort is just so unique, well worth the experience, slow down and enjoy what the rainforest has... More

Stayded there for only one night, but wish it was longer! The atmosphere is relax, and it's one of the few places that has internet up in Cape Tribulation. But why do you need internet, if there is an outdoor toilet that gives you lookouts over the jungle, cassowaries who come to visit every morning, and all other things that... More

What a unique place on the edge of civilization. The owner, Rob, has created a wonderful, comfortable experience to make you feel at one with the surrounding rainforest. We stayed two nights in the detached bungalow with the outdoor bathroom. Very cool! Rob was a gracious host and served us delicious breakfasts of tropical fruit, most of which we had... More

Rainforest hideaway is a lovely retreat hidden in the rainforest. Rob was very welcoming chatting with us about the area and his sculptures. He has many sculptures in and around his property and he has created a minigolf course throughout the grounds which when finished is going to be awesome, the holes that are there are fun to play on...

This is a very unusual place. The landscaping that owner Rob has achieved with his incredible sculptures and beautiful little section of rainforest have to be seen to be believed. Rob and friend were so welcoming and we really enjoyed the many informative and enjoyable chats we had with them. We had the room next to the pond and marveled... More

This place is Heaven on Earth, Rob was a great host and has amazing knowledge of the rainforest. The sounds of the rainforest at night are so relaxing, if your lucky you get to see the cassowaries around breakfast time eating fruit. This place has to be seen as no words can describe this incredible place. Adrian and Tarez

Eating owner Rob's varied tropical fruit at breakfast with 2 "brightly coloured" cassowaries polishing off all the bits we didn't eat, was an absolute delight! Their quizzical faces kept looking expectantly for more, for over 2 hours, plenty of time to let their startlingly coloured heads star in your photos. Cape Tribulation also has a few great restaurants, our favourite... More

We were the only guests here but had a great time hiking the hotel's trails and seeing the cassowaries that hang around there. The creek was refreshing and crocodile free. Our room had a bathroom outside that opened up to the rainforest. Pretty cool. No tv"s or anything but a great place to chill. There is Internet and the owner... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unique accommodation deep inside the world's oldest rainforest. Solar powered eco-accommodation without some of the luxuries and facilities of the big resorts, but comfortable and located within walking distance of beach, restaurants, shop and National Park boardwalks. On the two hectare property there is a sculpture trail showcasing sculptures created by the owner and several visiting artists, fishponds and a beautiful freshwater creek. This place is owner-built and owner-managed, and your host is always happy to provide you with tips on where to go and what to do and book any activities you'd like to do. Prolific wildlife is another feature of this property, especially the cassowaries that frequently visit the place. You can make your holiday action-packed with the local tours such as snorkeling, jungle surfing, horse riding, sea kayaking etc. or total relaxation by hanging out on the property on the seats on the sculpture trail, or in the hammocks around the house. Keep in touch with the outside world through free Wifi. If you are an artist you might even like to add your own creation to the sculpture trail. ... more   less
