Pros: The cascades and pool are gorgeous and you have it all to yourself, we didn't even feel the need to check out the other local waterholes. Roundhouse kitchen is full sized and living area has plenty of room. Location is close to tropical icecream shop and other places of interest. Best tasting tap water I've ever had! Cons: No internet or phone signal (landline provided). No washer or dryer, I think there might be a laundromat nearby. A LOT of mosquitos (in a rainforest afterall) wear insect repellent tropical strength and use the mosquito coils provided. Lots of nature noises at night, wear ear plugs if needed. You can only use either the pool or cascades not both depending on which building you're in. Tips: If you have smaller kids the pool is more kid friendly which comes with the Cottage. In the round house you will need mosquito coils on whichever level you're sleeping on, the mozzies will feast on whoever does not have it. Definitely try Daintree Icecream Company we love, love their icecream.…
sensational location fully immersed in the tropical rainforest of Daintree Cascades . Our own natural spring to cool off and have a drink and swim in , just heaven . we highly recommend at least 2-3 nights to refresh and unwind , and so central to all the other walking trails through the sheer magnificent ancient tropical rainforests over 400 million years in the making , a big thank you to the owners
This property far exceeded my expectations!! The roundhouse was roomy enough for the five of us to spread out and relax. The design of the house flowed flawlessly from inside to out. It felt like we were part of the rainforest. We explored the creeks and swimming hole on the property, and sat around the outdoor table by the fire and enjoyed the sounds of the wildlife. The kitchen was perfectly equipped to cook all of our meals and included extras like cooking oil etc. Ali the owner, was exceptionally helpful when booking and replied to any queries promptly. We will definitely be coming back here again!
Stayed at The Cottage for 1 week. Clean, private and well set out in the rain forest setting, Ideal for two people and very central to the Daintree area. The spring fed rapids with a good water hole only 30 seconds walk from the cottage was refreshing and most welcome after "seeing the sights". We enjoyed getting away from phone and TV reception and had no trouble filling in our time.
We loved everything about the small cottage. It is environmentally friendly, clean and comfortable and was the perfect place from which to explore the Daintree. As there is only limited phone reception in the region, we had no trouble unwinding and disconnecting from our usual busy lives and properly immersing ourselves in nature and reconnecting as a couple.
