3 of us booked this as part of a quick trip to cape tribulation from cairns. We had both of the small bungalows at the front. Some of the reviews on here seem so crazy to me. I’m not sure what these people are expecting in the middle of the rainforest!

The cabins are perfect for a short stay. They have everything you can need - a fridge, with a very small freezer in the top, plates and cups and cutlery. There are bbq’s outside which are available to use. We stopped at port Douglas on the way up and grabbed burgers amongst other food. The nearest shop is a good 10 minute drive away, and the nearest evening restaurant around 15 minutes. The cafe across the road that is on Thornton beach is lovely, however does close at 3pm every day (aside from Saturdays, where I was told they stay open for dinner).

Unfortunately the weather was terrible on our trip, but we made the most of it the best way we could. We sat outside and drank and ate and enjoyed just being in the tranquility of the rainforest. The beach is literally across the road.

Dean and Jodie were excellent hosts. This place is exactly as described. If you are looking for 5 star luxury you are in the wrong place altogether.

Thank you, we will be back!

Room tip: Parking available on site. Grab everything you need from shops on your way here.

Note the Outside sink to do dishes - can only cook on a bbq
No telstra. Only optus. 600 mb per device. In this day and age it's not much.
If problem with anything to do with the place as it's all off grid, can only email owners. Have to walk over road for reception.
Outdoor chairs and umbrellas a nice touch
Bungalow situated On main road so plenty of traffic noise.

A very comfortable stay. No TV and no Aircon…just the way we like it. We actually made conversation so any Gen X ‘s may struggle with this place. No need for Aircon as the louvers and fan were quite adequate. Thanks for being so open and friendly Dean. Across the road are the best views and Fish n Chips.
Highly Recommend this place

The cabins are clean and contain all the creature comforts you need for a relaxing stay in the Daintree. We picked up some dinner ingredients from Mason's and made use of the bbq facilities. The next morning we made a cuppa and walked across the road to watch the sunrise over Thornton Beach

Lovely venue and nice clean units. They were clean and well set out. Ideal location opposite Thornton beach. Friendly staff. Off grid power throughout the area but no generator noise. Thanks for making us welcome.
