“Beautiful house in a gorgeous location”
Reviewed May 4, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Nine of us stayed at Wait A While in April 2016 and absolutely loved it! The house is totally private and it feels like you're in your own world for your entire stay. The rainforest gardens are beautiful, it has a great swimming pool, huge deck, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen....I honestly can't find any negatives. Wait A While is located right by the beach and close to other attractions. The owners were lovely and extremely helpful before and during our stay. Every single one of us has said we'll definitely be coming back. Thank you for such a memorable holiday. :)

“Excellent house in the rainforest”
Reviewed July 5, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We had a great stay here recently. The house and deck is huge, everything is in great shape, and I would be hard-pressed to come up with any negatives. It's clearly in the rainforest, but still walking distance to the beach, and well-located by car to any major destinations. The beautiful photos on the rental site are very representative of the house and setting.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed January 6, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Good stay here for three nights the kids loved the night life (frogs and other creatures), we had 10 inches of rain which Sonya was a little sorry about but we loved it as the forest came to life with firefly's and frogs lizards birds etc.

Only suggestion would be a yellow line or something painted on the top step to upstairs bedroom my mum fell up that step and my 6 year old fell down them ( luck when your young you bounce:-).

Overall we would stay again without a second thought.

“Paradise Retreat”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This house is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, extremely private, and within a few meeters off the road, right in the jungle. It is a must stay for those who love luxury and wilderness.

It also has a swimming pool, good internet connection, and is close to Crodcodile tours, jungle canopy tours, fruit tasting, and within walking distance of beautiful Cow Bay. We will definitely repeat if we are ever back this way.

“Wonderful rainforest experience...”

Wait-A-While proved to be all that we expected from the photos and more. The large comfortable house is set well within the rainforest in your own little paradise. The pool was beautiful and secluded. It is a pleasant walk to the beach, and we even saw a cassowary. Kerry couldn't have been more help to us with letting us know details of attractions, restaurants, and dive trips in the area.
All in all a fantastic visit to the Daintree and a great base for us to stay. Hopefully we will get there again!

Our 2 families 4 adults and 5 children aged from 7 to 15 shared this beatiful house deep in the rainforest. The adults loved the wonderful porch to sit on when the children were asleep. The children loved the pool and the pool table. A lovely tranquil retreat after jungle surfing and swimming. We were a little worried about the croc warnings on the beach at Cow Bay so didn't swim there although after asking locals maybe we were too cautious. Didnt see any cassowaries, only a couple of white tailed rats. Heard lots of lovely jungle noises during the night, fantastic!
