“Wonderful rainforest experience...”

Wait-A-While proved to be all that we expected from the photos and more. The large comfortable house is set well within the rainforest in your own little paradise. The pool was beautiful and secluded. It is a pleasant walk to the beach, and we even saw a cassowary. Kerry couldn't have been more help to us with letting us know details of attractions, restaurants, and dive trips in the area.
All in all a fantastic visit to the Daintree and a great base for us to stay. Hopefully we will get there again!

“Stunning!”

Our 2 families 4 adults and 5 children aged from 7 to 15 shared this beatiful house deep in the rainforest. The adults loved the wonderful porch to sit on when the children were asleep. The children loved the pool and the pool table. A lovely tranquil retreat after jungle surfing and swimming. We were a little worried about the croc warnings on the beach at Cow Bay so didn't swim there although after asking locals maybe we were too cautious. Didnt see any cassowaries, only a couple of white tailed rats. Heard lots of lovely jungle noises during the night, fantastic!

“A beautiful retreat in a cathedral of ancient rainforest”

I was lucky to have been recommended this gorgeous retreat called Wait A While, set deep in the Daintree rainforest. From the moment I stepped out of my car I felt the weight of the world evaporate as I settled into the lush surrounds and fantastic amenities., and only 600m to the awesome Cow Bay beach. I had everything I needed my our fingertips, and a short drive for anything we needed. The accomodation is truly a treat and I loved sleeping in the loft bedroom, with it's own private balcony. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything needed to cook up a storm, and entertain other guests.

Being surrounded by nothing but wild forest and amazing flora and fauna gave me a chance to get back in touch with nature at its finest.

Wait A While is a credit to its owners, Peter and Kerry Muller, who were fantastic in the way they made themselves available and the information they provided to ensure my stay was comfortable ... and fabulous! So thankyou guys for opening up your beautiful home and sharing it so graciously.
