Rainforest Estate is a luxury residence with a high level of quality furniture and fittings. Inside the residence is not a place for children to "run wild". However well behaved children (and adults) are more than welcome. They also provide a cot, high chair, play pen and baby bath for their very young guests. Mobile infants will require parental supervision at all times. There are also many games, DVDs and toys for children to amuse themselves.
Many indoor and outdoor areas at Rainforest Estate are flat with easy access but some restrictions will exist (for example the upstairs areas) depending on the mobility of the individual. They do not have special facilities such as handles and bars to assist disabled guests however some facilities (such as the gentle walk in / roll in access to the pool) provide good assistance.
Rainforest Estate is a truly spectacular property, one of the best in Tropical North Queensland.
All external walls at Rainforest Estate are full floor to ceiling glass, providing a seamless fusion between indoors and outdoors. Garden views, tropical breezes and the sights and sounds of the natural world are allowed to permeate into every room.
However all rooms are fully screened to ensure the wildlife remains outdoors. All have air-conditioning, louvre windows and ceiling fans to ensure year-round comfort in any conditions. Therefore you have the best of both worlds - open, airy tropical daytime living, and comfortable, secure nights for deep and peaceful sleep.
Extensive elevated timber decks and boardwalks provide access to the separate pavilions via an ornamental rainforest creek and tropical gardens. Rainforest Estate's abundant, tropical grounds are in a pristine rainforest valley with only a handful of large acreage properties nearby.
Away from suburbia, passing traffic and other unwanted intrusions, yet close to all the action that Tropical North Queensland offers. Beaches, restaurants and shopping are just five minutes away.
A permanent rainforest creek runs along the southern boundary for over 200 metres. Walking tracks follow the creek to steps that provide easy entry into a cool swimming hole fed by a permanent mountain stream as well as to the upper reaches of the natural rainforest vegetation. Tropical birds, butterflies and Australian native wildlife are in abundance from dawn to dusk (and after dark if you're game to explore).
Apart from the extensive facilities available for your pleasure and leisure, the property is also fully stocked with everything you'll need for a fantastic holiday. From the welcoming French champagne, huge tropical fruit basket and flower arrangements on arrival to the well stocked spices pantry and the extensive DVD, CD, book and indoor and outdoor games collections, you'll want for nothing. But if you do need something special, they're always available to assist with anything required.
