Spend 2D1N in Janda Baik Rainforest to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life surrounded by cool and crisp rainforest air. Connect with Mother Nature by splashing in the stream within the property grounds or going for nature walks filled with spectacular sunrises and interesting wildlife. If you wish to venture out into Janda Baik, the host, Dorena will be happy to share a local guidebook or even help arrange nature excursions to the nearby waterfalls and farms. For those with children, Rest. Pause. is a perfect option as children can create natural art or fold paper planes in a distance or accuracy competition. The accommodation itself is fully self-contained with 2 living areas, 4 bedrooms, ensuite bathrooms, a library (of old books), and a well-equipped indoor and outdoor kitchen, perfect for small to large families. There is even a barbeque pit for those who wish to enjoy a hearty meal paired with some family bonding time!

Rest. Pause. Rainforest Retreat

Mr and Mrs Mah first built the Rest. Pause. Rainforest retreat for their retirement, sharing the acre of forest with their family and friends who often gather over weekends and the holidays just to – well, rest and pause. The retreat soon became a much sought after ‘hang out’ place for their family and friends usually stressed out with city living and fatigued from the rat race. The couple wishes to share their private acre of escape with a bigger community, providing you with the perfect experience of rest and liberation from busyness.

Dorena our host was superb and very present for every question we had, she showed us the activities around the house. She is available at any time and that' s very pleasant! The house is located in a beautiful place with a breathtaking view, I think it is the only house in the area that covers a view like this, we have access to a beautiful garden very well maintained and also a very nice river where the children loved to swim. There is a large terrace in the house for eating and drinking, you can stay there for hours as the view is so restful. A barbecue is available, breakfast is included! We get up in the morning with the sound of the river and the birds. On a positive note, there is wifi and also a TV with Netflix. The house is very spacious and full of small signs are hung everywhere for the functioning of the house. A haven of peace outside! We will surely come back and again a big THANK YOU to Dorena.

Had a very nice staycation with a group of people here. Place was spaces, quiet and literally a stone's throw from a small river (aka creek). The caretakers were very helpful and friendly. Home owner was responsive and patient. The place was stocked with everything you need for a BBQ and had a little welcome basket and drink awaiting us. That drink was good! All in all, a good value for money and a truly relaxing and fun filled weekend away from the city and the damn virus!

This place really feels like home. The surrounding rainforest is peaceful and serene; it really helps you to switch off and take a breather. The air is fresh and cool, and having breakfast by the verandah was simply fantastic. The amenities are a little basic but sufficient. Dorena was an exceptional host; she was prompt in her replies and very considerate. I look forward to coming back again!
