Accommodation with a difference!

Villa 39 is currently NOT available for holiday rental.

Villa 39 is a privately owned Villa in the Kuranda Rainforest Resort, which has been fully renovated in 2010 and currently is one of very few renovated Villas in the resort.  The bathrooms have been freshly tiled and new shower basins added, all downstairs carpet has been replaced with tiles, a  sofa bed has been added to the living area, all windows have been fitted with either new flyscreens or new blinds, all walls have been painted and the roof has been insulated and sealed.

Accommodation setup:

For best privacy and comfort of our guests we prefer to rent out the Villa as one unit, with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  Maximum occupancy for the Villa as a whole is 5 people, with a maximum of 4 adults or 3 children.  Please be aware that access to the single bed loft is only via a vertical ladder.  Additional person charges apply for more than 2 people occupying the Villa.


Please note that the Villa has 2 separate bedroom/bathroom setups, but only one kitchen and lounge area.
The resorts restaurant will be more than happy to surprise you with culinary delights at very reasonable prices. Please book in advance for all your meals.

Alternatively you can just book one part, either 39 A or 39 B.  Each part of the Villa has one bedroom and one bathroom, one refrigerator and tea/coffee making facilities, one air conditioning unit and separate entrances. Villa 39 A also has a kitchen and lounge area.

Villa 39 A has a downstairs bedroom with queen bed, a bathroom and a small loft, most suited for one child. Please note that the loft is only accessible via a very steep ladder.  This accommodation is most suited for a couple with limited mobility, as both the bedroom and bathroom are on ground level, or a small family with only one child.

Villa 39 Bhas an upstairs bedroom with a king sized bed (which can be split into 2 king singles if required, additional charges may apply), and a bathroom and living area downstairs, which also includes a kitchen. The lounge can be converted to another bed, sleeping 1 adult or 2 children comfortable.  This accommodation is  larger than 39 A, and has more flexible sleeping arrangements.  Please make sure to let us know which bedding configuration you require.

Please note all prices quoted are for 1 or 2 people. For immediate secure online bookings please use our booking site.

Villa 39 is owned by Nori & Detlef Hasenbein. We also run a beautiful Mediterranean style AAAT rated 4.5 star Bed & Breakfast on Tamborine Mountain in the Gold Coast Hinterland.

The Kuranda Rainforest Retreat is within walking distance to the famous Kuranda Village, with all it’s cozy cafes, extensive markets, butterfly house, zoo, Kuranda Railway, Kuranda Skyrail and other attractions.  Being situated in the cooler mountainous Hinterland of Cairns,  makes Kuranda the ideal base to explore the lush tropical rainforest as well as being only a short drive from the white sands and sparkling waters of the coast.  Smithfield is only about a 15 minute drive, you can get to the Cairns airport in about 40 minutes and Port Douglas is only about an hours drive.   Or go the other direction for a drive through the Atherton Tablelands and explore the beautiful lakes, historic villages, waterfalls and the like.
