Management truly cares about their guests' experience here, and they enthusiastically went to great lengths to ensure a wonderful stay. Matt is brimming with cheerful hospitality and a happy spirit that fills this Beach House with positive vibes. And let's face it,... More

My husband and I stayed at Cape Trib Beach House as part of our honeymoon adventure to Australia. We spent 3 days and 2 nights here. First, I have to say, we knew what we were getting ourselves into. If you're looking for a 5 star resort with a heated pool and sauna, this isn't where you want to come.... More

Hi and THANK You for a great review. Glad you loved it and had a great time. However, I did take your comments regarding the expense of the food and did some soul searching. I have tried since we started this new revised beach house - version 2.0 - to look at what we charge guests. Now, our accommodation prices... More

This guest - Norm is too kind, and I appreciate your remarks very much. However, I still feel we did not help you enough - I know the travel agent booked your room and I know that it was not our fault. I know that you were happy with what we did - but we should have done more. Norm... More

This was exactly what we were hoping for. It is really well located in the forest and right on the beach front which is truly beautiful. The room and facilities were clean and despite the average weather we managed to have a really good time.

Beach House was PARADISE. Beyond the paved road, it's a killer resort-style set of cabins nestled in the rainforest. The staff is amazing - Lauren at reception makes it pretty much impossible to be in a bad mood. Lauren is the best. The people who end up at Beach House are self-selected to get along pretty well, I'd say. The... More

After encouraging my mate to ride our mountain bikes from Mossman to The Lions Den Hotel (140klms) for a birthday beer, we pulled into the Beach House for our first night R&R. Drying off from a totally refreshing dip in the crystal clear pool we washed down the inside with a few ice cold draughts in the open bar before... More

We stayed at Cape Trib Beachouse for 2 nights as part of a birthday weekend away and would highly recommend it! I have stayed twice before and would come back again. It is excellent value for money, providing simple, but comfortable accommodation in private timber pavilion-type huts nestled in the world-heritage rainforest. It is the northernmost accommodation in the Cape... More
