          A haven in the rainforest”

          unique cottages, rainforest flora and fauna, attentive staff

          A wonderful place located in the Daintree Rainforest. Staff was super accommodating when we arrived about noon. We just wanted to relax and take advantage of the pool and beautiful surroundings. One room was ready to checkin and housekeeping switched things around so we could check in to the second cottage soon after. The resident cassowary came by for a curiosity look and we enjoyed drinks and games by the pool. Restaurants are within a 5 minute drive and there is a restaurant onsite which looked wonderful and we would have taken advantage of if we were staying Saturday night. We were leaving early the next morning for a trip with Ocean Safari (also highly recommended), so the owners made sure we had breakfast early with homemade museli, yogurt, tropical fruit and juices. Super nice staff and beautiful, clean and comfortable cottages. A unique atmosphere not found with larger resorts. Cape Tribulation and the Daintree are wonderful and more wild as you go further north!

          Wonderful wilderness”

          Absolutely beautiful accommodation, we had cabin 6 ‘silky lodge’ which seems to be the most private. You can’t see any other buildings through the trees. The included breakfast is really good, full cooked, croissants or granola which all came with a big fruit platter, juice and tea. The couple that run it are very welcoming and friendly. We got there quite late at night and there was no problem checking in. They were also great for local recommendations. Really easy to drive to cape trib (30mins? Maybe less). And close to the daintree visitor centre and a couple of restaurants (driving). We didn’t want to leave!! You could easily have an extra day here just to chill in amongst the rainforest! Fully recommend!

          Jennifer and David are the consummate hosts. From the beginning Jennifer wanted to make sure that we understand all that the area had to offer. She even suggested a snorkeling outing out of Cape Tribulation after the one that we had booked in Port Douglas had been cancelled. When we had to leave early, they sent us off with 2 lovely boxes of cut up fruit for the morning’s drive back to Cairns. Would definitely recommend the Lodge to anyone traveling in the area.

          Unbelievable Nature Experience! ”

          1. Location, 2. Atmosphere & 3. Scenic view

          It came as a huge shock as we never thought it would be staying smack right in the middle of a rainforest as we always thought it was just a gimmick with a rainforest nearby. But NO, it was literally built right in the middle of a rainforest which we both LOVE IT TO THE MAX!! The sounds of frogs, crickets, insects in the night and the sounds of the birds in the morning made the stay so comfortable and allow you to feel so close to the nature. The room was really beautiful too and made us felt really cozy when just out the door it is the rainforest. The only unexpected thing we came across was the car ferry which we had to take across a river to get to the lodging. Perhaps it's our first experience to have to drive our entire card onto a ferry made us a little uneasy in the beginning but it was fine after that. Ferry cost AUD$24.00 for a round trip though which is rather expensive.

          Yes , there's no TV. But the moment we arrived we were given a map and some really great instructions on how to get around, what to see and do, all before we were checked in. The rooms are far apart from each other and at times you feel like the only person there. the breakfast choices are basic, but good enough to get you through your sightseeing mornings. It was the hospitality that was great and the fact you feel like your in a tree house deep int he forest.

          Just a lovely location, and we really liked hearing the cicadas and other rainforest noises as we went to sleep. Jenny and David were amazing hosts, the food was fantastic - even for my vegetarian wife - and I really can't think of much they could do to improve things further! I guess I would have liked more control over the aircon, but I can understand that in an eco-certified place that runs off a diesel generator (no grid power or feasible renewable options).

          Excellent resort. Set in the middle of a rainforest. Amazing experience travelled with my 22 year old daughter and we both had a wonderful time. Food was delicious both breakfast and dinner. The hosts Jennifer and David were lovely and very accommodating. The most wonderful experience was seeing the resident wild Cassowary at breakfast one morning.

          Great place to stay in Daintree”

          Location, helpful staff

          Great place to stay. All the staff were so helpful and recommended excellent local tours. The hut was really great and a fantastic rainforest experience - made us feel like we were really in the middle of no-where amongst the nature! Excellent food too!

          Romantic getaway”

          To celebrate my 30th birthday, we wanted somewhere a bit off the grid, away from TV, internet etc to be calm and quiet. Here is the perfect place! The breakfast provided is delicious and there's a restaurant on site for a good dinner too! We saw the same young Cassowary 4 times which was real treat.

          staff attention, solitude, location

          Exceptionally tranquil with bungalows deep in the rainforest yet not crowded on top of each other so bungalow is a retreat in itself. Parking easy, staff very helpful, everything required was there. Highly recommend.
