Absolutely stunning. This is the Daintree I wanted to experience. The craftsmanship from this build is amazing- built from oversize timber felled on the property in the 70’s. We stayed in the Ridge House. You need to know what you are booking- there are no walls on the ground living areas and only mozzie nets on the beds. But this makes the house. You wake up in the morning looking out the window at the mountain ridges out front. No 240v power, no wifi, no landline phone, no mobile reception, only a radio if needed. We were on the road for 2 weeks and this was the highlight. Family of 4- 3yr old and 5yr old. Plenty of toys for the kids to play with. Views for days! Loved it- will be back
Simply amazing. A slice of heaven in the Daintree. If you’re looking for an off grid experience unlike any other then you’ll find it here. Exquisite grounds, accomodations and facilities. The hosts, Andy and Nettie, will ensure your experience in their rainforest retreat is something you’ll remember forever more. A highlight is their very own rainforest boardwalk complete with private picnic platforms and a meditation deck - not to mention the private swimming hole in crystal clear water babbling over sublime rapids. I can’t recommend this hidden gem highly enough!
Thanks to COVID and the lack of international travel we were lucky enough to stumble across this absolute gem. We stayed here for a long weekend in February and felt like we could have been anywhere in the world. We were in one of the newly appointed 'eco-huts'. They are described as 'glamping' which I feel is under selling them. I would quite happily live in one. The open air bathroom was a delight in the tropical climate, and the under cover kitchen was fully equiped, even with a weber BBQ! The ground have a plethora of rainforest walks and treks to keep you busy, along with a swimming hole right next to our hut. The friendly owners are around in the eveing to sit and have a drink and a yarn, and they even took us out in their boat for a spot of fishing. Highly recommended if you want the feeling of escape and relaxation!…
Wow! What a place! We stayed in both the ridge and lodge for a few nights with our two young boys and it was a highlight of our trip to TNQ. Both houses were fantastic but the ridge house was a standout. A stunning open air house which was well appointed and surrounded by the rainforest. During the day we read books in the hammock overlooking the forest out to the coral sea, spotted local wildlife including lace monitors, cassowaries and butterflies and explored the nearby waterholes and walks. At night we fell asleep gazing at the stars, watching fireflies dance around us listening to the sounds of the rainforest. The whole experience was magic!
Set on 500 acres of rainforest this property makes you feel as if you are living right in the middle of it. Open and airy with siding doors and high ceilings so you are exposed to the elements whilst still fully sheltered. We could feel the breeze and listen to the rain literally falling on the leaves at night.
