Amazing location about 1 km from main(!) road through Cape Trib. The accommodation is set back from the track so feels like it is deep in forest. Electricity is via solar panels, water filtered from creek so feels totally off-grid - though they do provide free wifi! The noise of the rain forest at night is something too experience and...

If you want to stay in the rainforest then this is the place. The bungalow has a bathroom open to the jungle. The noises of the rain forest at night are amazing, particularly after it has rained. The hosts are very helpful. The fruit for breakfast is excellent.

We entered a new world when we drove up here. A lovely cottage with an open air bathroom surrounded by a lush forest that hides all kind of statues and animals. Every morning there was an abundance of fresh fruit and coconut yoghurt waiting for us. (And there's even wifi if you want the outer world in.) Highly recommended.

We stayed 1 night in the jungle treehouse and it was seriously the best thing ever! It's surrounded by Daintree rainforest, has no windows and noone or no other house in sight!! Definitely not for everyone, as it has a longdrop toilet and you have to walk through rainforest to get there, but the website is very very clear on...

It is always great to hear people enjoy our efforts but this review page is for our Rainforest Hideaway B&B, not for the jungle house. I am contacting Tripadvisor to see if they can give the jungle house its own page.

I stayed two nights in cabin 1092. It was two very special days. On the site you don't see the back part of the cabin which is the bathroom which is completely open to the rainforest. This is just one of the very unique aspects of tis place. The forest with its noises is all around you including some very...

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...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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
