“Another perfect stay”
Reviewed 14 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This was my third time visiting the Daintree Secrets property - and won't be my last! The quality of the accommodation and facilities keeps improving (I love the new furniture and there are no power issues now solar is installed as well as hydro power) - but the pristine nature its set in remains untouched. Having our own private swimming hole will always keep drawing me back - I love the seclusion and serenity. I had no problems liasing with Katherine (manager) bout the stay, and she graciously gave us one night free as the ferry across the river had to be out of service for cleaning at the time of our stay. The deck had been extended and the outdoor space felt much larger - as well as a lovely repaint of it. I LOVED the new kitchen - very well equipped and much easier to use, but kept the beautiful wooden benchtops! I only came with my partner this time but feel the place could host large groups more comfortably now than ever. Great work guys, can't wait to head back.

“Tranquil getaway deep with the Daintree”
Reviewed 18 February 2018 for a stay in January 2018

The perfect setting to recharge! Nature awaits at every window and outlook from this beautiful timber home. Perfectly furnished with zen spaces to recharge and rejuvenate. Kitchen well equipped to stay home and cook. Comfortable and clean bedding perfect for a deep sleep to the sound of wild life and waterfalls. Yes waterfalls and rock pools literally off the verandahs of this pristine property. Kids loved adventuring around the property and lots to do nearby and Cape Trib like scuba diving and zip lining. We will definitely be back next year to escape the business of life and digitally detox at this rainforest oasis.

Thank you Lauren for that lovely review. We love to hear that our guests have embraced all that the Daintree has to offer, and still enjoyed their time at our piece of paradise in the middle of the wonder that is the Daintree Rainforest. It's also great to see children enjoying nature rather than being constantly on "devices"! We so look forward to having you return next year!

The location was absolutely stunning! The swimming holes and waterfall were BEAUTIFUL and the deck was great with the outdoor setting, chair swing and beanbags. "On the Turps" restaurant was AMAZING! The food was sooo good and I would definitely recommend it to other guests. Overall we LOVED our stay and would definitely recommend Daintree Secrets to others. We just wish we could have stayed longer! :) Thank you!

Thank you Maree, we would love to have you stay with us again! My favourite time to visit is the summer, we spend all day swimming - the temperature is perfect. The Europeans however love the winter and book us out well in advance. So glad you enjoyed our piece of paradise! When you return, please ask for our return guest special offer.

“Amazing Rainforest Stay”
Reviewed 4 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We had a wonderful few days with friends and family in the Daintree. This house is located north of the ferry which is ideal for visiting local attractions and Cape Trib. The house is well equipped and the waterfall and swimming hole on the property is amazing. Great break and all round experience thank you!

“Peace and Tranquility”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Having just spent a glorious week at Daintree Secrets, I can honestly say that this peace and tranquility is surrounded by the most stunning scenery. Watching Ulysses butterflies tango while swimming in a pristine mountain stream is only one of the many highlights of this very relaxing, private place.

“Nature at its best”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Enjoying every meal on the deck - multiple appearances of the stunning Ulysses butterfly in front of the entirely private waterfall and along the river.

Inside the house the ceiling fans kept the humidity at a comfortable level.
