There are only three cabins, and even so, they are positioned in the rainforest so that you feel as if you are the only one for miles. The cabins themselves are simple with everything you need, and the mattress is firm although the pillows very hard and the sheets VERY coarse! Delicious breakfasts of fruit, toast and cereal were delivered... More

Thank you for your review, Mandi, and we are very sorry to hear you had some problems during your stay - we do wish you had mentioned these to us while you were here so we could have tried to rectify them.

My brother, father and I booked one of The Daintree Valley haven cottages. It was a simple, double bed demountable with a kitchenette, bathroom and balcony. Daphne and Peter were so helpful and kind. They knew the best places to see and eat and were full of great advice that they'd readily share. In the evenings my brother, father and... More

As nearly all communications here are via satellite it's not feasible to extend wifi to the bungalows - and many of our... More

A perfect place for our 25th wedding anniversary. Tranquil, peaceful and comfortable. The serenity was perfect. The cottage was very well appointed and the hosts, Peter and Daphne were outstanding. Daphne arranged our snorkelling trip and provided beautiful daily breakfasts of local produce. The Daintree region is full of good hospitality. Thank you for a wonderful 4 night stay. Lisa... More

The weekend we chose to stay at the Daintree Valley Haven was a particularly wet one which resulted in being flooded in for a few extra hours. Peter and Daphne were extremely helpful, giving us timely updates on the water levels and even moving a fallen tree from the road so that we could be on our way. The overall... More

We stayed here for two nights on our last stop in Australia. It was a very good choice, the little bungalow was clean and comfortable and our hosts were very friendly and helpful.

We were so happy that we decided to travel the 8km up the Stewart Creek road from Daintree Village to our secluded B&B cabin (1 of 3) on Daphne and Peter's beautiful property.

The perfect place to get away from it all. Breakfast outside watching the fantastic butterflies, sunbirds, kookaburras and other wildlife, surrounded by the views of the rainforest; evenings relaxing in the hot tub listening to the sounds of the rainforest. Why did we not book for longer? Thoroughly recommended.
