Can't say enough about the great week we spent at Rainforest Estate. The pictures of the property tell it all--it is absolutely beautiful. Modern decor, impeccably maintained inside and out. The location is ideal as it affords you easy access to the beach, Port Douglas, Daintree Rainforest, and even the Queensland Outback. There is so much to do and see in the area that the week went by in a flash. You will want to reserve extra time there so you can just stay on the property a few days to soak up the beauty!
Christine and Allen were the most gracious and courteous hosts we have dealt with in a long time. We arrived late on a Sunday evening (at almost midnight) but they insisted on greeting us personally at the Estate when we arrived to get us settled in which was great. They were extremely helpful as far as recommendations for things to do in the area as well as places to eat. They arranged several of our day trips directly with contacts they know. One of the highlights of our stay was a day trip to the Queensland Outback that they arranged--Allen actually was our tour guide (and driver--which was most appreciated given some of the "roads" we travelled over--a true Outback experience!) while Christine prepared an evening cookout near the property that was topped off by a local singer who played Australian folk songs for us by campfire--a truly magical day!
You will be hard-pressed to find a more beautiful place to stay than Rainforest Estate, or a more friendly couple to rent from than Christine and Allen!!
