Daintree Secrets is your own private waterfall sanctuary set in the heart of the beautiful Daintree Rainforest, the oldest rainforest in the world! Only two hours scenic drive from Cairns, this secluded property captures the true essence of this spectacular wilderness. When you arrive, you are greeted by the sound of the waterfalls.This is your home for the next few days, and you are immediately relaxed. You may find that you only get as far as the verandah with its spectacular view of the lush green rainforest surrounding the waterfalls and sparkling natural swimming pool. But a swim with the jungle perch and back massage under the waterfalls is highly recommended. Keep your eyes out for the tortoises that visit. We provided 2 luxury double "Ambient Lounge" bean bags which we recommend taking down by the swimming pool with a cold drink (plastic cups available) and a good book to while away the day. The palms provide shade if needed or you can choose a sunny spot, but remember your sun screen. You will never want to leave ! Daintree Secrets has the only private, natural swimming pool in the rainforest.
The house is fully furnished with three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and open plan living/kitchen area which allows views of the rainforest, waterfalls and stream from all rooms.
Tucked in at the base of Thornton's peak we have a continual water supply, allowing us to run our own hydro-electric power supply. In keeping with the Grade 3 Heritage Listing (the highest in the world), you can rest assured that your carbon footprint whilst at Daintree Secrets is negligible.
All linen, including beach towels, are provided for your stay. The kitchen is fully equipped and we provide pantry basics - Daintree tea and coffee, sugar, Himalayan salt and pepper grinder, extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, flours etc.
The house has a TV, DVD and CD player along with a library of DVD and CD for your enjoyment. There is also a selection of books and games. However, there is no cable television or internet, one of the joys of this pristine paradise. A phone is available to make local calls to book dinners and tours etc for your convenience.
To ensure you make the most of your stay we recommend a minimum of 3 nights stay so you can really relax and enjoy your own private waterfall sanctuary in the heart of the Daintree. To help you achieve that we offer a fourth night free of charge if you book directly through our website.We look forward to sharing our beautiful and unique piece of paradise with you.
