What a magical spot Rob and his partner have. Fantastic to visit and be really at one with nature. What a good office to wake up to each day. The outside bathroom was really lovely. Seeing the fireflies in their natural environment was beautiful. Thanks so much

I had booked this with some hesitation - knowing that my wife might be nervous. I booked the room with the bathroom open to the rain forest! Rob has created a wonderful place over many years - away from the tourist trail. My wife's first reaction was very subdued! This changed, when we walked around the rain forest within the...

If you are looking for a night "off the grid" this is the place for you, great hosts and an amazing location in the rainforest. We all need time to step off the tread mill and this is the place to do it, no internet or mobile signal - fantastic, enjoy!

We just had an amazing stay at the rainforest hideaway with hospitable friendly hosts. This is a unique and quirky homely place to stay. This place is a must stay. Fresh enjoyable breakfasts with good company. Hosts are only too happy to book tours. Abundance of local knowledge and information for guests.👍

This spot has everything. Not too many tourists. Wonderful sculptured trains. A casawary (endangered) joined up for breakfast. Best breakfast ever. Selection of unusual tropical fruits was breathtaking. It's simple but EVERYTHING you would hope fo right in the heart of the rainforest.

Happy to hear you enjoyed our place but I was a bit confused about the comment on the trains, future guests please note we have TRAILS through the forest, not trains....

We only had time for 2 days in the Daintree Rainforest and optimized our time by spending a night in the jungle tree house. It was fantastic - nice paths, creek, surrounded by bird songs all night. A place worth spending a week to escape the urban stress and get immersed in the beauty of the rainforest.

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights during our trip to Cape Trib. Staying here with Robert and his wife was 100% the reason this trip was so unforgettable and amazing.

I stayed for two nights in the cabin with the outdoor bathroom. As an avowed city dweller this stay was a shock, a needed shock, to my air-con, vacuum sealed, sterile lifestyle. I love luxury and amenities and the little carpet you stand on at at the check in desk, and hotel safes and classy bars and key cards and...

Happy t o hear you enjoyed your stay, and yes, this is a jungle retreat and I am happy you pointed this out to our future guests.

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...

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.

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
