Lovely spacious modern house on edge of rainforest with swimming pool, barbecue and very well equipped. 20 mins from Cairns CBD and very central to main tourist areas around such as Port Douglas, Kuranda, Scenic Railway, Atherton Tablelands, Yungaburra. Mary a very hands-on host and will make bookings for you at the drop of a hat. Highly recommended.

“Amazing House, Amazing Customer Service”
Reviewed 29 May 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This property has absolutely everything you need. As we had a young baby with us the level of comfort, cleanliness and security was very important and this property ticked all the boxes. The owner obviously takes great pride in providing great accommodation and matches the quality of the property with excellent, friendly customer service. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone looking for a 'home away from home'. Lots of peace and tranquility, good location, excellent facilities and an easy transaction all round. Would love to stay again.

“Luxury In The Tropics”
Reviewed 26 February 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The Rainforest Family Retreat was an incredible experience for our entire family. Everything was just right from the generous fruit platter and cold drinks in the fridge on arrival, the wonderfully appointed kitchen, the spacious living areas, large bedrooms and of course the fantastic pool and deck with a view over the valley with the rainforest so close you can reach out and touch it.
The Family Retreat has every appliance, nick nack and comfort to make your stay one to remember. Only a short drive from Cairns into the lush tropical surrounds of Crystal Cascades, I could not have wanted a more beautiful and secluded location. There was ample room and tech equipment to keep the teenagers happy whilst the adults sat on the deck and took in the sunsets with a cold beer each night.
I would thoroughly recommend The Rainforest Family Retreat to any Cairns bound holiday makers and will definitely be back.
