Thornton Beach Bungalows
We arrived near dusk at this enchanting Daintree spot where a sensational coast is surrounded by tropical rainforest. The bungalow, one of a pair, nestles across the road from the beach. We wished we had bought food with us to use the BBQ but it wasn't a hassle to drive 15 minutes either way for basic alternatives. We didn't dally over our meals as we were keen to return to the porch and enjoy the sky and night sounds. The sound of the lapping waves was relaxing as was the whole experience. This is where you make those promises to return.

Right across the road from the beach and right in the middle of the rainforest. Hosts were extremely helpful in organising our tours. Listening to the waves and animal life, best relaxing break away. Definitely recommend.

Lynn and Jeff were amazing! Extremely helpful planning our 3 days in their area! We cooked some food. All was fine! Lynn and Jeff who were covering for the other couple. They would join us for happy hour and check up on our adventures! One evening adventure was cancelled due to weather and Lynn was able to track us down and tell us. As we had no phone. We are an adventures couple with a rental car and this place was perfect for us! We booked everything through Lynn.

we booked one of the two bungalows for one night and our experience is fantastic. A beautiful view, just across the cafe and a beautiful beach. The hosts were very nice and helped us to plan our day. Highly recommended.

Room tip: Bungalows have two independent cottages - we stayed in no.1 but n.2 is also equally good.

My partner and I stayed with Karen & Drew for a couple of days last week. We absolutely loved it! The location is super quiet, right across the road from a stunning beach (unfortunately no swimming because of crocs, but that's pretty normal for the area), and there are only two baches and the hosts' house, so it's very quiet. Across the road there's also a licensed cafe which we didn't use. Karen & Drew supplied us with extra stuff for cooking and using the brand new barbie, and were always there to give us tips for trips and our subsequent journey. The bach is tiny but has all you need, a fridge, kettle, crockery, and tea & coffee, with a wee deck and an additional seating area around the barbie.

We just loved the little bungalows and what Thornton Beach had to offer. The bungalow was nice and small - perfect for 2. We loved having a little patio off the bungalow to sit on in the evening and reflect about the beauty that surrounds the area. At night time, the only sounds we heard were those of the rainforest and the ocean. Absolute peace!

The owner, David, was super friendly, helpful and informative. He provided us with ideas about where to eat in the area and what to do. Will most definitely recommend to anyone I know travelling up to the Cape Tribulation area.

Thanks so much!
