Meet your host Rob Lapaer

Your hosts at Rainforest Hideaway are Rob and Aruni.

accommodation hosts

Rob grew up around the famous cheesetown of Gouda in the Netherlands, but after finishing school and militairy service got restless, travelled to a few different countries looking for more space, adventure, opportunities and better climate, and finally found it in Australia.

After many years of travels Rob finally settled down in Cape Tribulation in 1993.
He had never built a house before, only a coffee table and a pergola, but he figured any idiot can cut bits of wood to the right length and then nail the ends together, and so Rainforest Hideaway came to be.

Aruni originates from Thailand where she picked up her spicy cooking and Thai massage skills.
Cape Trib is a good second home to her with similar climate to Thailand and she has established a vegie garden, revived the tropical fruit orchard on the property, and she does traditional Thai massage in the gazebo by the big fishpond in Rainforest Hideaway.
