What a wonderful place to stay -away from it all -back to nature, with a fantastic host who could not do more to make your stay enjoyable- not too enjoyable though if the weather is very hot as there is no aircon etc. Solar power and rainwater.

Karen and Don are wonderful hosts, welcoming and knowledgeable about the region. The bungalows are in a peaceful location, all you hear is the wildlife at night. We enjoyed being away from noisy roads and internet, great to switch off. This is a place to unwind and relax. The bungalows are basic but contain all you need to cook a... More

Loved the stay here. We had two nights and whilst there is no air con and internet, you aren't even bothered at that stage because it was nice to be somewhere interesting and cosy. The cabins are quite new looking and absolutely professionally set up. I never encountered pests and insects despite being warned of a few little critters willing... More

Whilst on holiday in australia my friend and i stayed here on the 7/8/9 Feb 2015 We had a brilliant time. As someone else said, try & arrive in daylight as the bungalows are tucked away in a lovely setting but our sat nav found it easily. Ed the owner has built just four cabins, two with verandahs and two... More

If you are visiting Daintree then Ed's place is a must. Unspoilt beautiful surroundings and great accommodation. Ed is super helpful and friendly and gives a great run down of where to go locally and also where not to go if you don't want to come face to face with a croc. Cow bay is stunning. Can't recommend this place... More

Ed has created a great place to experience the rainforest. The hand-crafted cabins bring you into really close contact with the nocturnal warblings, screechings and scratchings, yet they are comfortable and just a really cool place to stay. Ed is a generous and thoughtful host with deep knowledge of all things Daintree. It's a special place with a unique vibe.

We stayed 5 days at Ed's Rainforest Bungalows and didn't want to leave. The setting in the rainforest is great, with only a few minutes' drive to the beautiful Cow Bay and other attractions in the nearby area. It's easy to spend a week here and explore the Daintree area - there is so much to see.The bungalow itself is... More

Our time in the Queensland region was limited due to work commitments, so we only had a 2 night stay here. Honestly we could have stayed for weeks. There is so much to do in the Daintree, and the bungalows make a fantastic base. Ed was a friendly, helpful host who went out of his way to assist. It's easy... More

Great bungalow to relax in and escape phone reception and the internet. Comfortable, clean and great shower. Fantastic to wake up to the bird noise in the forest and owner Ed was helpful and friendly. Would love to go back one day!

As you can probably see by previous reviews and photos Daintree Rainforest Bungalows is a sure bet when looking for accommodation in the Daintree. The owner Ed is a wonderful host and over our stay with him he proved to be helpful, considerate and an all round nice guy. Several times Ed went out of his way to help us... More
