My wife and I have just stayed at this B&B and it was excellent. We are on our honeymoon and I had booked accom at Cape Tribulation that ended up being so diabolical that we cut our financial losses and left without spending more than an hour there. We then had a, "what do we do now?" moment and headed back towards Port Douglas. We saw a little street sign pointing to a B&B so we nervously followed it. The B&B at the end of the 'yellow brick road' was Epiphyte.
We were greeted amiably by host Kathy who showed us around the place. Our situation was a little tricky given we had our 11 month daughter with us but Kathy happily discussed the logistics of where to bath bub and get organised. As it turned out, the venue was perfect! We could relax in the communal lounge area while bub slept happily in the bedroom.
We found the facilities to be perfect for what we were looking for. The communal deck - with an awesome outlook over the nearby mountain range - facilitates the congregation of guests and the bedrooms are reasonably spacious. The continental breakfast was a good start to the day and, again, allowed story-swapping between guests.
We found this place virtually by accident, but would enthusiastically recommend the venue and the hospitality of Kathy & Brad to anyone.
