Isn't your worst nightmare that you or one of your travel companions gets seriously sick. It's going to happen some time and when it did to us the silver lining was the wonderful Lauren at Cape Trib Beach house who from the moment we rang to say we were at a hospital and not sure we'd get there that day,...

Stayed here 2 night with family. The place seems run down and unsure of if it is catering to backpackers or tourists looking for a bit of comfort. The guest kitchen is appalling, next to no cooking equipment and one filthy wet tea towel! However the bistro is overpriced with un-inspiring food and slow slow slow service due to a... More

We arrived to Cape Tribulation Beach House with a very generous smile and shown to our room by Matthew. The beach house is located in one of the best spots I have ever seen. You are meters away from the beach to enjoy the sunset with a drink but also set amongst the amazing Daintree Rainforest. I highly recommend a... More

We stopped by here and walked through the grounds to get to the beach. The grounds are clean, well maintained and the restaurant looked good as well. We were visiting from the US and somehow didn't realize that we should have stayed on Cape Tribulation. We didn't stay here, but we would have gladly. The resort is simple but the... More

Let me start by saying, like many of you I have never reviewed accommodation before but am an avid reader of reviews when it comes to doing my research. Our family of 4 (2 small children) recently spent a week in Cairns, Cape Trib, Daintree etc. When looking at options for Cape Trib, reading reviews and looking at photos -... More

This YHA is set in the rainforest beside the beach. It has simple but comfortable cabins. I am glad we had an ensuite as the bathrooms, laundry and reception (with the only wifi) were quite a walk away. The bistro served large portions of simple pub style food (fish and chips, steak etc). It was fine for a simple meal... More

Matthewbeachhouse, Manager at Cape Tribulation Beach House, responded to this review

Hi thanks for your feedback. Seems you had a great time....however, I was a little concerned with your comment regarding this is marketed as a resort - when it is, which I think caused you to rate us only 3 out of 5. I respectfully disagree - this is a resort - an amazing resort and I have no other... More

As a local showing southern visitors our region, I'm impressed with & thoroughly recommend the Beach House if you want a genuine tropical beach, wildlife & rainforest experience that's great value for money, with happy, thoughtful and really helpful staff - not an over the top ritzy upmarket place but it truly reflects what we locals love about living in...

We stayed for 3 nights in a family bungalow and was unsure of what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised at the standard of the bungalow and although there was opportunity for bugs to enter the cabin, I only saw one cockroach and a spider. The restaurant was average prices for Australia and the food was superb. we ate there... More
