We reckon this would be one of the best options in the area. Eds bungalows are hand made and Ed himself makes a great host from the minute you arrive. After taking time to sit with us and share a beer, he ran through all of the things to do and places to eat in the area. The bungalows are... More

Eddie made us very welcome and was always there when we needed anything. His bungalows, while basic, have exactly what you need - comfortable bed and screens to keep the insects out! We loved it, nice picturesque setting, enough facilities despite no mains power, and the ideal base from which to explore the Daintree Rainforest.

The bungalows are basic but have all the things you need. Eddie, the owner, is a very good guy and does his best to accommodate guests. It is a great place to rough it. Note given how dark the area gets a night (no street lights and off the grid), it is best to arrive during daylight hours as it... More

This was a novel and very comfortable experience. Ed produced very fine NZ wine for us on our arrival and he was super obliging during our stay. We were more comfortable here than in our 5 star hotel in Cairns.

Great bungalows, attention to details, super clean. Outdoor BBQ facility with everything you need to cook. Couple of minutes from Cow Bay's beach. Most importantly, Ed's dedication to his customers, always there when you need him. 100% recommend this place!

This stay was the highlight on our Australia trip. The cabins are nice and clean and big enough for 4 people. Eddie is a fantastic host who will always serve a beer or a steak. We will definitely come back!
