Our group (3 couples) loved the house, set amidst rainforest and close to a beautiful beach. The house was spacious and very comfortable, providing a relaxing place to stay. Located approx 1/2 hour from Cape Tribulation where there are many activities to do.

Wait-a-while is a great big house surrounded by rainforest and yet only a short distance from a beautiful beach. We spent a few nights here and found so much to do and explore with our kids. A great experience!

Wait-a-while is a beautiful place. Quiet with a nice pool. The house description warns that it's in the rainforest and that it's a unique property, which it is. Please be aware that it is remote and not central to many things. We had no issues with the house itself but we may not have chosen this property due to the remoteness. Kerry was very responsive and helpful, but we did have a few issues. Directions were unclear as the lot addresses are confusing. We lucked out by having a very helpful neighbor show us how to find it. Also, we never did get the WiFi to work and were told by many locals that nobody gets reception out there. We're birdwatchers so our problem with the location may be specific to us. The house and setting were great but they just didn't fit us well. Oh, yeah...the house is warm inside and doesn't cool down easily.

Response from Kerry:
Thanks Tammy, Really glad you enjoyed the house, Sorry you felt you made the wrong choice with it being too remote for you but for a lot of people that is one of the attractions - it is the Daintree Rainforest and it is just over a 2hr drive from Cairns International Airport. I am glad our neighbors where able to direct you and whilst you don't see houses and restaurants everywhere - rest assure all the driveways you past lead to something. There are many resorts, Cafes, tours & A La Carte restaurants to choose from in the area. In regards to the Internet connection - you mentioned you had spoke to many locals who said there was no connection, and I just can not understand that, as I pretty much know most locals & every business owner up there (having lived there for almost 7 years now just 1 hr away) I don't know anyone who does not have Internet with exception of the odd permanent rental. (Being Satellite internet / Wifi , cloudy or rainy conditions can result in intermittent outages). No Mobile coverage can be a challenge for some however we do provide a free landline for guests. I have double checked my house Number on the directions and this listing and what I sent you was correct - I believe the directions are very clear and states the properties house Number which is also clearly marked on the side of the road adjoining the driveway with a sign displaying Wait A While Daintree.

Wonderful house located in the middle of the forest, with a lot of wildlife around. The terrace below the trees is gorgeous, the inside of the house a jewel. Both adults and kids in our group loved it. Nice pool, large garden, very good amenities, and Kerry gave us upon arrival quite many useful tips. This is house is very special, and staying there is an experience in itself.

My husband Peter & I (married now for 30 years) have lived our lives in beautiful places around Australia. Kiama (south Coast of NSW), Thredbo Village, Daintree Rainforest and now settled in Port Douglas Qld. We operate six holiday accommodation houses in the region viz. Wait-a-While and Tea Tree Cottage in the Daintree Rainforest; Reef Villa, #2 Andrews and Port Douglas Valley Retreat in the Port Douglas area and 'The Edge' Cairns.
I feel very fortunate to live in this unique part of the world and very proud to be able to showcase it to visitors from all over - and particularly pleased to be able to enhance the visitors' experience by providing high quality lodgings that complement such special environments.
Our style of travelling is generally reflective of that of our guests: independent, somewhat flexible (ie fairly organised but not rigid) and with the expectation that we get what we 'signed up for' (when you peruse the websites you can be confident that what you see is what's delivered).
