What a magnificent getaway. Everything to visit is in easy reach. The walks to the waterfalls were breathtaking. Thank you Laura & Jon for your superb hospitality. My apartment was "to die for"..... Will definitely be back and recommend the Cairns Rainforest Studios to everyone.💕

We stayed 3 nights, starting with a midnight trip from the airport in our rental car. It is only 20 minutes from the Cairns airport, with crystal-clear directions supplied by Laura. The upstairs studio exceeded all of our expectations. Laura and Jon were always ready to help with advice. One of the best things about this that at the end...

This fantastically located studio is 20 min from airport as well as from downtown Cairns. Don't be put off by the Kamerunga locator mandated by TripAdivsor. It is very comfortable, clean and well equipped, including a laundry. Laura and Jon are extraordinary hosts. We awakened to bird calls in the residential area nested in the forest. A quick walk or...

This beautiful rainforest retreat is just a short drive from the centre of Cairns but a world away from the touristy hustle and bustle. We stayed in the upstairs studio and had all the amenities we needed to cook meals with a lovely balcony screened by trees. The bathroom was huge with a spa bath. The room itself is also...

We stayed in the upstairs studio for 4 nights and had a wonderful stay. We like to be out of the main towns and cities and this is a tranquil location at the entrance of a deep forested valley at the edge of the rain forest canopy, so suited us fine. The apartment is part of a wooden pole house...

It's wonderful to hear that guests are taking advantage of this great location and appreciate the local sites so near to our accommodation . We are just inside the city of Cairns and adjacent to the Barron Gorge National Park which does make it easy to see both and fast to get out of town ! The studios are perfect...

We stayed in the upstairs studio for 3 nights at the end of our Mission Beach holiday. This is an ideal rainforest haven close to Cairns...much better than any apartment we have stayed in previously in our view!

We spent a relaxing week at this lovely establishment. Laura and Jon were very welcoming and full of local knowledge and suggested lots of places of interest for us to visit. Staying out of Cairns was our choice, and being right in the rainforest and only a short drive to the beach was perfect. Cairns Rainforest Retreat came highly recommended...

The studio far exceeded our expectation and provided us with our own little corner of paradise.
