Nice simple bungalows with all we needed, located in a great spot of the Daintree. Karen met us when we arrived and gave us some helpful tips and advice for around the place. We really enjoyed our stay here!
Perfect location for exploring the Daintree area. Bungalow had everything we needed, across the road from a beautiful beach and we even saw a cassowary just up the road.
We spent 6 nights at this great little bungalow. Karen and Drew were terrific hosts, welcoming, friendly, with good advice and directions, and their extra touches added to the enjoyment of our stay. The bungalow was compact, ultra clean, comfortable, and had all we needed. It is ideally situated to explore the Daintree and is just across the road from an almost deserted beach. We ticked all our boxes, cassowaries (saw 8), Cape Trib, rainforest walks, beach walks, and using all our courage, Jungle Surfing. What a hoot! Loved it! We would thoroughly recommend staying at Karen and Drew's little piece of paradise. We would love to come back and bring all the family.
Although we didn't have the chance to meet Karen, her communication and directions were "spot on". We enjoyed a very peaceful nights rest in the perfectly described bungalow. We were sorry to have to leave a night early.
Karen was very, very helpful and flexible with our ever changing travel plans during our stay in the area. She made sure our tight schedule from the airport to a walking tour was accommodated (and booked the tour for us at a discounted price) and allowed us to check in late. She also helped arrange a last minute change to our Port Douglas dive plans due to weather conditions. It was very refreshing to have such welcome help in a country where we had no means of calling/communicating w local guides.
The accommodation was also very lovely. It was like a tree house in the rain forest! When we went to sleep at night, with the windows cracked you could hear the crashing waves on the nearby beach and the sound of a rain during a quick evening shower. Very relaxing stay. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
The bungalow was absolutely fabulous! It was clean and had everything we needed. It was only a few steps from the beach ( which we had to ourselves!) and a wonderful little cafe which does the best brekkies!:) we only stayed one night and so we didn't get to meet the hosts but Karen was very good with communication and left us her phone number in case we needed anything:) I would highly recommend the bungalow and we hope to be back soon for a longer stay!! Thank you :):)
Quiet bungalow with the beach across the road!
Great place to stay near the amazing forest of Cape Tribulation.
