Stonewood Retreat  is an eco-friendly luxury sanctuary, set on 2.5 acres of lush Australian Tropical Rainforest within the Daintree National Park. This project started in 2003, when Murray first laid his eyes on this unique property. Since then there has been a major restoration of the house and grounds by Murray and local craftsman Don Bromley. Now in 2011, Murray and Lara Bond are honored to announce that their dream is finished and ready to be shared with the world.

As you drive into Stonewood Retreat, the entrance sets the mood for what will greet you. The size of our Daintree Accommodation is deceiving from the outside, and when you take your first step into what will be your home during your stay, the high ceilings, antique windows and timber crafted finishes sets the tone.  There’s an interesting contrast here…  A great sense of freedom and a warm feeling of being nurtured by the arty rustic design, and  yet a bright & sunny house with amazing surroundings.

Stonewood Retreat is set in the most natural settings, the design is made to bring the outside in, and compliment the forest serenity,  not take away from it.

The Natural Pool “has” to be seen with your own eyes, a series of terraced water ways only a short stroll from our front door. Words and images can only describe a fraction of the magic of these pools.

Whether your intention is to relax and recharge with some peace and quiet or get outdoors and explore the amazing Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef, this romantic getaway provides everything you need to make your holiday an amazing experience. Stonewood Retreat will treat you and capture your heart with its exquisite style.
