“Fantastic Private Escape in the Daintree”
Reviewed June 21, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Located in lovely Cow Bay, with an amazing uninterrupted view across the Coral Sea. Beautifully quiet and serene, we really enjoyed our few days here. Far enough away in the forest to be secluded but still a few minutes from the local restaurants and cafes.

Whilst we were just 2, the house and pavilion can easily accommodate an extended family. Everything you might need has been thoughtfully catered for. The kitchen is fully equipped - we brought our own supplies and cooked, and all the small things we forgot like salt, sugar, etc was already there.

Binoculars to make the most of the delightful views during the day (the only way you'll spot a neighbour,far far away) and torches to go exploring the area at night. We were not as lucky, but the past guests recorded their night time visitors on the deck in the guest book.

If you can't resist though, satellite TV, broadband Internet and a Mobile repeater is all there but kicking back with a wine on the deck and board games (also provided) is much preferable!

“Sublime and peaceful”
Reviewed March 20, 2016 for a stay in September 2015

My ten days here was simple quiet pleasure. Not only did I traverse the glorious Daintree River by ferry [who is lucky enough to experience ferry travel these days] just south of Cow Bay to get to this delicious Hilltop Escape, I was then in the middle of the Rainforest of the Cow Bay Hilltop Escape. I walked their bush tracks, watched the Coral Sea over
breakfast dinner and tea, listened to the rainforest life and sounds, watching birds and lizards, walked the sands of Cow Bay and climbed around the shore rocks. It was absolute
diversion. Bed comfy, kitchen a delight, fancy shower delicious and I was so
relaxed, my return to the real world was easy. I give five stars
to a beautiful place. I will spread the word on line and in person and
thank Sarah and Peter, owners of this restful and rejuvenating place.

“Outstanding escape”
Reviewed February 29, 2016 for a stay in August 2015

In Cairns on temporarily for work, I was looking for a spot to enjoy and a pad from which to explore the Daintree. So too was a great mate who was also wanting to get out of the Winter doldrums of Melbourne. I heard of this rental through colleague and it sounded perfect. After a cracking drive north out of Cairns through cane fields and over the Daintree River by barge, we found ourselves at the house, in the midst of the rainforest, high on a hill perched above Cow Bay with a perfectly framed view of the beach, the bay and surrounding hills. You really needn't leave the deck and this view, it's pinch yourself good, but we also spent time exploring the beach and did some great short drives further north, to Cape Trib and did a zip line tour through the rainforest canopy. It's an outstanding escape. After only a long weekend we left feeling like we'd been away a couple weeks. I can highly recommend this place, for a couple, a family or group of friends. The house is large, airy with a super relaxed vibe. Enjoy!
