“A nice place to stay”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

The bungalows are basic but have all the things you need. Eddie, the owner, is a very good guy and does his best to accommodate guests. It is a great place to rough it.
Note given how dark the area gets a night (no street lights and off the grid), it is best to arrive during daylight hours as it can be hard to find.

This was a novel and very comfortable experience. Ed produced very fine NZ wine for us on our arrival and he was super obliging during our stay. We were more comfortable here than in our 5 star hotel in Cairns.

Finally made it to the Daintree, Rainforest Bungalows were a fantastic place to stay! Great value, Clean and tidy in a picturesque setting, We found it a good base to be able to explore from the Daintree River to Cape Tribulation. Eddie was a great host with fresh pawpaw from the garden and advice on things to do and see in the area. Will make a trip back soon! a wonderful part of the world

Great bungalows, attention to details, super clean. Outdoor BBQ facility with everything you need to cook. Couple of minutes from Cow Bay's beach. Most importantly, Ed's dedication to his customers, always there when you need him. 100% recommend this place!

This stay was the highlight on our Australia trip. The cabins are nice and clean and big enough for 4 people. Eddie is a fantastic host who will always serve a beer or a steak. We will definitely come back!

We spent a wonderful holiday in this bungalow!!
Surrounded by the Daintree Rainforest, close to Cow Bay beach, the bugalow is very clean, spacious, and have all you need to cook your meal and have a good night's sleep...
Ed explained to us all the best places to see depending on our desires.
My wife had an ankle sprain during Mt Sorrow walk and Ed and his wife were very helpful by lending us his own crutches!
If one day I come back to the Daintree Rainforest, I will definitely stay there again!

Amazingly, my arachnophobic 21 year old daughter, and 16 year old son enjoyed themselves hugely, staying at the bungalows. Ed is a great host.. his suggestions spot on. Highlights for us were Cow Bay (just a beautiful surprise), the Daintree Ice Cream factory, and the Croc tour. But there were lots of highlights. Note that if you want to do the skywire thingy, you have to book early as it's very popular (we were too late). My son will never forget his 16th birthday in the Daintree.

The cabins are spotless. Just great.

Room Tip: there isn't a swimming pool or fitness centre!
