This is a great place run by Robert. His place provides an unique experience of immersion into the rainforest. He built the whole place himself and we had the opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife like cassowaries and tree frogs right on the property. Also the chorus of wildlife heard day and night is a fun experience. We spent... More

Great experience staying in the rainforest and listening to the amazing sounds of the night animals. Saw micro bats, fireflies, array of birds and a cute little snake. Quirky sculptures. Rooms are pretty basic but it is the experience of the forest you are here to enjoy. Would certainly recommend.

I love the Rainforest Hideaway,I first visited in Sept 2011 and again in April 2015; it is unique, rustic and serene. Robert (the owner) has maximized the beauty of the rain forest without impacting on the environment. I stayed in the room with the outside bathroom and it is quite liberating being with nature. Robert's partner does great Thai massages... More

Totally original, quirky and if you love nature a must visit location. The buildings have all been built by the owner Rob over 20 years. The minimal amount of rain forest that was cleared for the buildings seems to have crept right back up to the walls. The sounds of the rainforest are constant and loud. Electricity is provided by...

Relaxing, different and novel, but most of all the comfiest bed we had so far on our trip to Australia. Rob the owner made us welcome, recommended somewhere nice to eat for the evening and then made us breakfast which included a taster plate of various unusual fruits. If you want to get down with nature then this is the... More

Myself and my husband are city visitors in general so Cape tribulation was a bit of a shock to the system. The natural beauty is astounding. We drove up from cairns and stayed at Robs magnificent hideaway for two nights in a bungalow. They were incredibly welcoming and the property itself is very unique. I do have a bit of... More

We loved our hut on stilts open to the elements at night. It was a very restful place and we were very private although not far from the rest of the accommodation. Quirky, in nature, genuine experience. Fruit bats in the morning but missed the cassowary.

what an absolute surprise! A good one. My first reaction was 'no aircon,' as it was in November, but we certainly didn't need aircon. Not only are you staying in a rainforest, you are showering in a rainforest with the outdoor bathroom. Totally privacy from humans. Funky sculpture trail with lots of great art hidden amongst the greenery. We will... More

I feel as though I could have stayed here for all eternity. Just sitting and looking, drinking it all in, every inch of this property is treasure for the eyes. We saw wild cassowarys, took a mystical journey through the sculpture trail (protected from sun and rain by a lush canopy care of mother nature) and spent nights listening to... More
