Read rave reviews on trip advisor,but experience was unfortunate. Private room in a ‘Lodge’ has toilet and shower atthe foot of the bed and large shared communalfacilities which were well equipped. Bed was only double size, but clean and comfortable. House ishigh set on steeply sloping ground with very tall steel pier foundations, creaky floors and shared decks which compromise privacy. Aircon andoversized ceiling fan over bed. Commanding views tothe islands from some rooms and from communal deck. However, the walls are paperthin, so that every hark or fart is shared with your neighbours, AND the earth (ie the building) moved for everyone in residence when the prolonged amorous pursuits of one couple were underway. A clever concept lacking in theexecution.

Hi guys. Thank you for your Review. Very entertaining. I'm very pleased you found your double bed clean and comfortable. That is one of our goals. We do suggest however for our middle aged Aussies that they are probably going to be more comfortable in a Queen room and especially more so our Queen Rainforest Suite. The ultimate luxury though is our King "Honeymoon" Suite. BEAUTIFUL !!! We have a selection of styles of rooms to choose from not just our Lodge rooms which we seem to see more positive reviews from the international travellers who more enjoy contact and interaction with other fellow travellers. The layout is more suited to travellers who like to communicate with others whilst cooking in the shared kitchen or using the bbq on the shared deck not just hide away in their rooms (which you can actually if you prefer). For those guests who more prefer their own privacy and company we can also arrange a television in their room upon request. Being a Retreat, most of our guests prefer to not have one. They are there if required. Call me next time guys so I can help you choose the best room for you. BTW, your comment about the lodges being good for groups is also correct as we do get a lot of groups using the lodges. They are awesome for families and groups of friends as they have everything in them. Take care guys. Regards, Pete

Had such a lovely and relaxing stay here!!! Lovely rooms and shared common areas. Came with a bunch of friends and loved looking at the ocean views with a glass of wine. Was also super easy to get into town. Would definitely recommend!!

I had the best weekend away with some of my girlfriends. The Rainforest Retreat was in the perfect location to explore Airlie and jump on a boat for some island hopping. The accommodation with great for our group, we loved the shared living area to relax and sit on the balcony for afternoon drinks - you can see the ocean!! I will definitely come back to RR if i visit Airlie again & would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway!

Thanks so much Emily for your wonderful Review. Yes, we are perfectly located between the Blue of the sea and the Green of the Rainforest. A million miles from care but yet only minutes from all of the restaurants and night life. Hope to see you again soon. Pete

We had an amazing two days with a group of girl friends. The view was spectacular and the accomodation was perfect for a big group! It was also really close to town but you felt like you were up in the trees! I would highly recommend them and will definitely be back again soon.

We stayed here for an all girls weekend getaway in Airlie. It was perfect for what we wanted. 4 rooms coming off the self contained living area of the unit with a stunning balcony. With our own bathrooms it was the perfect venue to get ready in to go out and relax on the balcony with that STUNNING ocean and rainforest view.
Would highly recommend, a great place for groups as it's tucked away up the hill out of the hustle and bustle of town.
