Host, Rob, has combined his skills as a builder and sculptor to design this wonderful rainforest retreat. Along with his local knowledge, and the location of Hideaway, it all adds up to a brilliant getaway. Coming from the frozen winter in Melbourne, I was relieved with the weather, obviously, and thought staying this far north would be more 'resorty' and pricier. So, to find such a unique place at very reasonable rates, was a Eureka moment. I'd definitely recommend this, and look forward to returning sometime soon.
- 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
