It's been 14 years (!) since we've been to Dutch Robby and his magnificent hideaway. We had a blast and some great memories that last a lifetime (something to do with a spider and a Casuari bird!!!) We stayed in the little cabin with insect nets on three sides, so it really felt like sleeping in the jungle! Hope to... More

we had three BEAUTIFUL nights at Rainforest Hideaway, thanks to our amazing hosts Rob and Aruni. Large secluded rainforest section, with winding walks around the property leading to open streams and lush greenery, with incredible sculptures dotted along the way- created by the owner/resident artist Rob, and some contributed from visiting artists. Amazing treehouse, open shower on the bottom storey... More

I can't tell you how excited I was to find the Rainforest Hideaway... My son and I stayed in the Jungle Treehouse for 4 nights which was exactly the type of accommodation I was looking for: earthy, private, surrounded by nature. It was an great adventure and experience that won't soon be forgotten. The Rainforest Hideaway property is about 1km... More

Many visitors to Cape Tribulation and Daintree seem to come on tour buses from Port Douglas or even Cairns, probably staying in hotels with all the comforts. After a night staying in the Rainforest Hideaway Bungalow, I realise that you would miss out on half the experience of the magical rainforest as a day tripper. While this accommodation is not...

I love rainforests and so stayed at the Junglehouse. Please look at the pics on the website before booking this place to make sure its for you. Its an eco-friendly accommodation right in the middle of the Daintree rainforest. Its really jungle living, still has electricity, gas hot plate stove and battery operated small fridge. There is also a grocery... More

Always happy to hear that people enjoy our work and service but once again I would like to point out the jungle treehouse is a place we manage and not Rainforest Hideaway B&B which was the original reason for the existence of this page. Small correction to the toilet description; it is a composting toilet, not composite, it follows the... More

What an amazing little gem in the middle of the rainforest. The jungle treehouse was perfectly described. Brilliantly basic and beautiful, this private space is open and connected to the stunning surroundings. While having a morning dip in the creek we were lucky enough to be visited by 4 young cassowary (under the watchful gaze of their dad) and watch... More

We have had a bit of a wave of reviews of jungle treehouse reviews recently, even though I ask guests not to mix up our Rainforest Hideaway B&B with the other property that we manage. Nevertheless, always happy to hear people have enjoyed their stay in the Daintree and that our work is appreciated. More

The jungle tree house is an unforgettable experience. This place is definitely for nature lovers and NOT for the arachnophobes. There is a freshwater creek very close and a swim at midnight became a truly magical experience as fireflies danced in the treetops above. The large room is back to basics and is totally away from the norm, there is... More

A one night stay in the tree house - this was the highlight of our month in Oz. An experience of living in a rainforest will not be forgotten. For a truly remarkable experience, stay here. The fresh water pool down the path for an early morning dip was beautiful. A visit to Cape Tribulation is not complete without a... More

Stayed here last night and absolutely loved it, was the best rainforest experience I've ever had. The outdoor bathroom of the room we stayed in was magic, showering with the rainforest as your backdrop - perfect!! Staff were so friendly and helpful, would recommend anyone heading up to Cape Trib to spend a night here!

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
