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

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

What can we say - thank you Rob and Alessandra for providing us with the perfect honeymoon experience! The Rainforest Hideaway was simply stunning; Rob your vision and passion to create such a place of beauty and calm, combined with your hospitality (and wicked sense of humour) is just sublime! 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!
