Spring School Holidays Special
We currently have a great special for families looking to escape the cold south for a warm Spring holiday. Stay 6 nights and the 7th night is free, a 15% discount. Dates from September 2018 to 14 October 2018 are currently available but will go fast. Check Availability or Contact Us direct for full details.
Our highly competitive rates are entirely based on the number of guests and the length of stay. The more guests, the longer the stay, the lower the cost per guest per night. What could be fairer? Rates are as low as $76 per guest per night for 18 guests for 10 nights.
Click here to determine the total cost of your stay. Simply check the number of guests (adults + children, not infants in cots) by the number of nights of your stay to see what the total price will be.
Infants in cots are not included in the guest limit of 18. We provide one cot (including linen), high chair and play pen free of charge.
Additional rollaway beds and cots are available for hire at an additional cost of $200 per week (or part thereof) and includes, linen, laundry and delivery charges.
Reasonable end of stay cleaning charges are included in the rates. However additional or excessive cleaning (if necessary) is charged at $50 per hour.
For full terms and conditions for holiday rentals please see our Rental Agreement.
Please contact us for a quote for longer stays.
While the residence sleeps up to 18 guests, there are not 9 bedrooms and sleeping areas so every couple does not have a totally private bedroom if you have a full house. This maximum of 18 guests assumes some guests will share bedrooms, sleeping areas and / or bathrooms. See our Residence page, the Bedrooms and Bathrooms section for a detailed explanation of the sleeping arrangements and our recommendations for the maximum number of guests based on your privacy requirements.
Close family groups used to bunking in together may exceed these recommended limits if privacy is not an issue

Changes and Cancellations
To ensure Rainforest Estate is in pristine condition for your arrival, check in time is 4pm. We request you check out by 10am on the day of departure.
We will whenever possible, try to accommodate any special requirements you have to suit your travel arrangements if other bookings permit.
Well-behaved children are welcome at Rainforest Estate. We provide many DVDs, CDs, games, books and other activities suitable for children of all ages. We can also provide a cot, high-chair and play pen for the younger ones (a rental charge applies for more than one of each).
While we do welcome children, Rainforest Estate is a luxurious property with quality fixtures and fittings and as such is not “child proof”. There are many things that are accessible that young children should not “play with”, so if you are uncomfortable or feel you will be unable to relax in this environment we recommend you consider a more suitable accommodation / function venue.
Because the property borders the World Heritage Daintree National Park with a wonderful variety of bird and animal life (some very rare or endangered) we cannot accept domestic pets of any kind.
We can recommend nearby accommodation for all domestic pets if you wish to bring them with you to Tropical North Queensland. However because large areas of the region are National Parks, pets will be very restricted where they will be allowed to go. We therefore recommend you find suitable accommodation for them closer to home.
Rainforest Estate is a no smoking venue to ensure the comfort of all our guests. On request we can set up an outdoor designated smoking area to ensure smells and debris from smoking does not impact the property or future guests. There is absolutely no smoking indoors or within proximity to open doors or windows and cigarette butts must not be disposed of anywhere other than the receptacle provided. Failure to follow this policy will incur additional charges.
We want you to thoroughly relax and enjoy yourselves in this peaceful valley. The property is in a small rural residential area, a predominantly very quiet neighbourhood with just a handful of medium acreage properties. It is not suitable for noisy outdoor activities that are likely to impact on the residential amenity of the neighbours. In particular, the use of outdoor amplifiers, speakers or other noisy equipment or activity, including fireworks, is not permitted at any time. These noise controls also apply to Functions. However, using commonsense, the in-house Bose sound system is quite capable of creating a “disco” party atmosphere inside the main residence without unduly impacting the neighbours.
Rainforest Estate is an exclusive, private residence and is available on a sole occupancy basis only. That means its all yours for the duration of your stay / function.
All prices quoted on this web site are in Australian Dollars. They are subject to change without notice.
