“Secrets - So Well Named”
Reviewed July 24, 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Firstly I must thank Katherine who masterfully handled our booking and the many questions I had.
The location is so near the rushing waters over rocks and swimming holes with not another soul in sight, it is exceptional. But, just to the side, it's own flat grass area where my grandson played soccer as often as possible while I relaxed with a.wine by the outdoor dining table watching the ever flowing waters dance over the rocks.
A secret hideaway indeed, and no mobile connection to disturb the peace.
Hidden under natures rainforest and constructed to blend in with its own hydro power scheme also hidden from view. Just sample it, you won't be disappointed.
Yes you need a vehicle, an electric bike would be ideal and would fit in with the ideals of the owners I am sure.
Just shop once, the fridge can cope. Access to the beach, reef snorkelling, walks, the Daintree Discovery Centre, all must do's are a few minutes away, nothing compared to Sydney or Auckland. Then back to your own secret hideaway.

A most enjoyable four days.

“Absolutely Dreamy”
Reviewed July 20, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Arriving at the house we were blown away by the incredible location right above your own picturesque and totally private swimming hole surrounding by the lushness of the most ancient rainforest in the world! The spacious deck, comfortable furniture and facilities including BBQ, DVD player and lots of movies, heaps of CDs, laundry and fully stocked kitchen with fantastic appliances was the perfect way to break up a long journey. The home itself can accommodate many guests comfortably, but was also ideal as a secluded romantic getaway. It was perfectly clean and tidy. There was plenty of information available at the house about the Daintree and surrounding activities. The rainforest was lush and full of life. We enjoyed relaxing by the natural swimming pool and on the deck and spotting the beautiful blue butterflies, birds and listening to the tranquility of the forest. Hard to believe places like this exist. It was so hard to leave and we cannot wait to go back!

Beautiful property. The perfect place to get away from the busyness of life. No phone reception, No Tv just Rainforest, water falls and beautifully equipped property. Take your food, as you won't want to leave once you arrive. Impressive hydro powered house from the energy of little Cooper Creek.

“Paradise in the Daintree”
Reviewed April 9, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Our family have just spent 2 incredible nights at Daintree Secrets and loved every minute of it. We wish we could have stayed longer. This place really is paradise. The kids loved swimming with turtles and fish and spotting the beautiful butterflies flying overhead. The swimming hole really is a special place to spend time- we didn’t leave the property at all during our stay! Sitting on the verandah overlooking the falls for meals is also very special and the House has everything you could need. We’ll definitely be back!

Thank you Helen for taking the time to write about your Daintree Secrets experience! We love sharing our piece of paradise with others and it gives us so much joy to hear that others love it as much as we do. It is a magical place and even though there is so much to do and see in the area, it is difficult to drag yourself away from Secrets. We would love to have you stay again and happily give return guests special rates.

“Another perfect stay”
Reviewed March 13, 2018 for a stay in February 2018

This was my third time visiting the Daintree Secrets property - and won't be my last! The quality of the accommodation and facilities keeps improving (I love the new furniture and there are no power issues now solar is installed as well as hydro power) - but the pristine nature its set in remains untouched. Having our own private swimming hole will always keep drawing me back - I love the seclusion and serenity. I had no problems liasing with Katherine (manager) bout the stay, and she graciously gave us one night free as the ferry across the river had to be out of service for cleaning at the time of our stay. The deck had been extended and the outdoor space felt much larger - as well as a lovely repaint of it. I LOVED the new kitchen - very well equipped and much easier to use, but kept the beautiful wooden benchtops! I only came with my partner this time but feel the place could host large groups more comfortably now than ever. Great work guys, can't wait to head back.
