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

Why am I so lucky..To find this gem cold off a Cape Tribulation site was just pure magic. First night we spent in the very private treetop hideaway to wake up there on Christmas day...what a present. Next night we stayed at the house surrounded by the most beautiful ponds full of amazing flora & fauna. Paradise springs to mind... More

We had the privilege to stay for three nights in December at the Rainforest Hideaway with Rob and Aruni. The place is pretty unique and, for us, the whole experience started in Cairns where our plane from Hamilton Island landed. We rented a car and started our journey to Cape Tribulation. The road to the Daintree national park, about 150... More

We traveled to Daintree to experience the rainforest. Our stay at Rainforest Hideaway was an important part of this great experience. Our cabin was more or less part of the rain forest with its out door bath and free flow ventilation. Yet bugs were never a problem - we were told the bats get the credit. Our host, Rob, was... More

We only stayed for one night but we had such a lovely time! The rain came in overnight and it was a fantastic experience to hear it on the roof and all the other sounds of the rainforest. Particular recommendations for the outdoor bathroom - so beautifully designed to give indoor convenience, total privacy, and the experience of showering in... More

We loved every second of our 4 nights, we only... More

Thank you Rob for a unique and tranquil stay at your Hideaway. We loved your creativity and appreciated your sculptures on the walking trails throughout the property. we especially appreciated the outdoors bathroom...my only regret was that we could only spend one night in Cape Trib....will definitely come again!

We loved this place! Rob is so friendly and a spectacular artist. It's close to all the activities and such a lovely little hideaway. We had the room in the picture and the open air bathroom to the rainforest was fantastic. We did the sculpture walk and just relaxed in the scenery. You do need to like being in nature... More

We spent three wonderful nights at Rainforest Hideaway and it was absolutely magical. The perfect way to enjoy the Cape Tribulation area with a place to stay that was genuinely calm, relaxing and quite beautiful. Rob and Aruni are exceptional hosts and have made a place in the rainforest that is something that one sometimes only dreams exists. Listening to... More
