Accommodation deep in the Daintree rain forest
accommodation in the daintree rain forest

The bungalow features a queensize bed and bedside tables made of salvaged blackbean timber from a tree that fell over in the wet season of 1995, all handcrafted by your host.

Walls are lined with local nutwood and this cabin has its own front verandah and a very special outdoor bathroom.

The cabin also has a small front verandah overlooking the goldfish pond with two brolgas made by visiting artist Garry Greenwood.

We offer free Wifi in all public areas as well as this cabin.

Features and facilities of this bungalow:

Queensize bed with bedside tables of local blackbean rain forest timber, handcrafted by your host.

Barbeque with basic kitchen facilities.

Amazing open air bathroom.

Safe for your valuables.

Private veranda overlooking a small fishpond.

Thanks to the government stubbornly denying us grid electricity we have to make do with batteries, generator and solar panels.

This means that the list of facilities is not what you would consider standard in the city. It means we can not put an electric fridge in every room, and we provide eskiws (ice boxes) and supply you with ice blocks to keep your stuff cool.

No air-con (but you'll be surprised how cool the rainforest air is), no TV or fridge in room, no hair-dryer, no electric water jug to make coffee.

In summer time a pedestal fan will be placed in your room, and adjustable glass louvres capture natural cooling breezes. All lights are energy-savers, and there is gas to heat your shower and make a coffee in the kitchen.
