Beautiful Daintree rainforest accommodation near Cape Tribulation just 5 mins from lovely Cow Bay beach and overlooking the World Heritage Daintree national park. The main accommodation house is Queenslander style and has four en-suite rooms (single, standard double and large double/family size) each with private balconies, a large open-plan living area and extensive verandahs...the perfect place to relax and have a 'real' holiday!. For couples or small groups looking for even more privacy or independent accommodation, the Golden Orchid Retreat is a gorgeous self-contained cabin separate from the main accommodation house with views across the orchard to Noah's Range. Operating on solar power and rainwater as much as possible, the Epiphyte B&B has landscaped gardens to explore, views to take in and rainforest at the back door. Beautiful Cow Bay, where the rainforest meets the sea and reef, is a short drive away. A home away from home, The Epiphyte is airy, casual, friendly and breakfast featuring seasonal fruit is included in the room tariff. Help yourself to tea, coffee or a cool drink anytime. Play games, read a book, take in the stunning mountain views, swim, snorkel, visit the free board walks and/or join one of the many tours available in the Cape Tribulation, Daintree Coast area e.g snorkeling, fishing, canoeing, 4WD trips to Wujal Wujal, jungle surfing, night and day walks in ancient rainforest. It's a beautiful place to stay any time of year!! We'd love to share it with you.

The perfect location if you want peace and tranquillity yet great access (by car) to everything the Daintree has to offer. The Cow Bay area has a better choice of places to grab a dinner - Crocodylus has a relaxed outdoor pub style restaurant with good food, didn't try the local

My first time in the Daintree, and what a delightful experience it was. Stunning views and verdant gardens, totally cut off from mobile phones and internet. Trish and Kev are amazing hosts who really know and love the area. Breakfast, with its exotic fruit and abundant toast and

Do all your room and the cabin have insect screens?
Hi MatildaMurwillumbah, Thanks for your question. We have insect screens on two of the four openings in our Golden Orchid Retreat self-contained cabin. The four guest rooms in the main house have no insect screens but do have pedestal fans and mosquito nets are available on request. Amazingly, even though we are in the rainforest, we don't have any insect problems as we think they prefer their own habitat. If you choose to stay with us we look foward to meeting you. Thanks Kathy and Brad Managers

"Different house rooms or separate outside cabin(s?) ... ask for the differences."
"We had the family room with 2 queen beds (one outside on the deck) and a bunk bed. Shared communal area with amazing views."
"all rooms off the main living area but its very quiet except for bird noises."
"Corner room was with bathroom."
"Choose the family room with an outdoor day bed, good enough for sleeping on and feeling like one is sleeping in among the rainforest"
