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 though so you can't let birds, frogs or bugs get you down! Breakfast was so good. Fresh bread and an array of exotic fruits with great conversation from our host.
A lovely quiet spot for doing very little, sitting on the deck and watching wild life and the rainforest (including visiting cassowary).
Wow, what an amazing place to stay - hidden in the rainforest, this hotel was a lovely little gem to spend the night. The staff were LOVELY and really made us feel at home - wonderful!
Friendly owners, Wonderful location in the forest.
not a thing
Absolutely loved this place for an authentic rainforest experience - we swapped our room booking for the tree house out the back - so private and felt like we were in the jungle! Loved every minute of our stay - tried to extend a night but Rob was fully booked.
we really loved the open air bathroom in the middle of the rainforest, so private yet in the open! we really felt at home there with Robert's kindness and chats. If you happen to pass there during good weather be sure to play a round of hand crafted mini golf hidden in the rainforest!
Great jungle setting. Friendly owners / managers. Easter Island theme of grounds. Fly screens on windows. Availability of wifi in an area without phone reception.
Not much really. Our room was next to common area and a bit small
We loved the tranquility of the rainforest and the sculpture trails Rob has put so much work into. We had only just arrived for our stay when two cassowary's visited and it was a bonus to see them up close. Our stay at Rainforest Hideaway was the absolute highlight of our far North Queensland holiday.
Having to leave this beautiful property.
Wonderful location in the middle of the rainforest where Rob has created an amazing hideaway. True to its name this unique home is a real oasis of calm where we were welcome to relax and just soak in the sights and sounds of the jungle. Good base for wonderful walks and beach trips yet good restaurants and other activities available nearby too.
Sadly no Cassowary the 2 nights/ mornings we were there but they are wild and free to roam not in captivity so no complaint really.
The owner built everything, including the numerous garden statues, and is currently building a mini-golf course.
The vibe of the hosts didn't seem too welcoming. Also, poor sleep due to noisy wildlife with poor noise insulation to room.
Loved staying right in the rainforest, the peace, the native animals (including cassowaries!). Host was gerat and breakfasts were to die for.
Brilliant location in centre of rainforest. . Peaceful , arty , natural , picturesque . Would absolutely recommend . Lovely , health breakfast with delicious fruits and home made yogurt . Fabulous sculptures ,gorgeous setting. Absolutely loved it . A must .
The name Rainforest Hideaway says it all. The unique forest trails, Rob's sculptures, the 'back-to-nature' outdoor shower, the delightful Rooney and her fnq fruit breakfasts, and the Cassowary visits
The solar power limited electricity use, meaning no room fridge or coffee making facilities.
Rob and Aruni were fabulous hosts! All the sculptures. Beautiful grounds. Being sung to sleep by frogs! The breakfast fruit platter.Yum! Sooo quiet. The cassowary that visits. The quirkiness of the place.
Wonderful experience, location and, tropical fruit breakfast!
Wonderful spot in the rainforest, great host.
The rainforest in the backyard. Plus the cassowaries!!
This was simply an amazing experience. The Rainforest Hideaway is obviously a labor of love by of the owner Rob Lapaer. It's unique, and our stay there was the highlight of a wonderful trip to the north of Queensland. Highly recommended.
We really loved the artistic aesthetic. It was abeautiful, quiet location, good breakfast.
Not much really
The sculptures were amazing and the setting in the rainforest was truly beautiful
Location up a dirt road
Beautiful location in the middle of the rainforest. Our room had a unique outdoor bathroom. The refreshing dip in the river.
Sloppy surroundings when you arrive (old bus sitting in the garden, bags of cement...). The motivation of the owner seems a bit down. Too basic for the price.
A native of Holland, Rob Lapaer fell in love with the remote, naturalistic beauty of the Australian rain forest. He decided to stay, and bought five acres of wilderness near the Daintree National Park in 1993. Over the years he designed and built his own residence with a large rear deck. Then he redesigned the main house to add a bar and an adjoining guest suite to serve as a B&B. Later, a separate guest suite was built across the parking lot. Then came the pièce de résistance. Rob built a large guest suite with bathroom facilities on the ground floor, main bedroom/living area above with cooking facilities, and a loft for a third occupant. The Tree House overlooks the river a fair distance from the main buildings. In between are pathways where pools of water with carved stone statues, large figurines singly and in groups, unique benches and covered tables, and even picturesque stairways and bridges await the guest out for a calming stroll through the dense rain forest. Make sure you take the time to explore the pathways, and keep your eyes open for statuary both large and small. The continental breakfast features a dazzling array of colorful and exotic fruits, some of them grown on the premises. Part of the breakfast entertainment is the semi-tame brightly colored local turkey, and the occasional visit of the local Cassowary family, a smaller, more colorful version of the Emu. Today, the hidden retreat sits one kilometer from the main road through the Daintree National Park. Yet it is as much a part of the rainforest as possible while still providing the comforts of a B&B. All of the rooms are open to the trees and wildlife that surrounds them. You will be serenaded by a few different species of frogs at night, and during the day will see a variety of larger creatures, mostly birds, including the exotic Cassowary, a slightly smaller, more beautiful type of Emu. Just up the road is an equally intriguing restaurant, Whet.
Surroundings were very impressive good job done by owner
Did not like listening to the frogs all night long 4 nights in a row bit to much for the price
Beautiful surroundings, garden sculptures,and furniture created by the owner. outdoor bathroom was lovely as were the sound of the frogs at night...
Unique location Very helpful hosts Nice breakfast Comfortable bed
