“Wow! Just WOW!”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I have stayed in the Daintree quite a few times but I have to say that Daintree Secrets Rainforest Retreat is definitely one of my absolute favourites!

We stayed for 2 nights on the 20th/21st June 2014 and even though it is 'Winter' we still got in the private creek for a swim. The view from the balcony of the waterfalls cascading over the rocks is so inviting!

The house has 3 generous sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, perfect for a group getaway! We had 2 friends from Victoria staying with us and it was the perfect place to unwind and catch up!

The location is perfect as it wasn't far to drive to Cape Tribulation for a morning of Jungle Surfing and a walk along the beach, back for lunch then a quick trip down to the Daintree Ice Cream Company for some afternoon icecream.

I highly recommend Daintree Secrets to anybody wanting a few days away to disconnect for the rat race and relax! I absolutely LOVE that there is no mobile service available!

“Beautiful oasis”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This property is unlike anything we've seen anywhere else! Absolutely beautiful and worth every cent. I went up for the second time (first time with family and this time with partner and friends) this month and had an awesome time. The house is large and has all the comforts you need, while the real attraction is the beautiful pond right in front of the house - your own private natural pool!

Second visit, first time with the kids, this time with a group of friends. Suitable for both.

One downside, the noise. But the upside is that it is the noise of your very own waterfall in your very own private backyard. If you are a photographer, you can really hone in your skills on a wide range of subjects. If you just want to relax, you can do that too.

It is remote with no internet or mobile access, and that is a good thing. Add a couple of extra days so you can really understand where you are.

Very worthwhile place to go to see the rainforest close up. Highly recommended.

Make sure you get down the road to Heritage Lodge and their restaurant On The Turps!!

“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 26 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

This is well appointed absolutely private with a glorious swimming hole. It's quite well appointed but you have to be careful as the power system is limited. The driveway is steep so recommend arriving in h daylight. There are very limited range of goods for sale north of the ferry so make sure you bring your supplies with you. Would definitely stay there again.

“Amazing place to relax and recharge!”
Reviewed 26 March 2013 for a stay in December 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and the kids (12 & 6) loved it too. With no mobile phone or internet access we were able to truly switch off and relax. It is such a beautiful and remote spot yet really great restaurants and activities were only 20 mins away. If you want to feel the stress melt away then this is a great way to achieve that. Recommend at least a 3 night stay to do it justice - we stayed for 5 and wished we'd booked for longer.
