“truly an oasis in the rainforest”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Tina gave us a warm welcome when we arrived. Super nice host. very quick response before we arrive. everything you need is handy, lots of towels (you’ll need them if you’re traveling with kids ). all cooking utilities, cutlery, stove, oven, etc… and even WIFI! Tina has a lot of activities information in a folder for your convenience in case you haven’t planned anything (me!) a return ferry ticket was a bonus! my boys loved the place and asked if they can come back again!
highly recommended!

“A lovely surprise”

We didn't expect the rental to be bad, we were just nicely surprised it was so nice :-)
Very roomy, great outside area (would have loved a BBQ as the weather was so hot that cooking outside would have just nailed it!)
Every single thing one would need is there. We took a lot of extras ie salt, pepper, paper towels, cling wrap etc. No need, it was supplied (We actually left our extras to add to the 'coffers')
As locals, my husband and I (from the Tablelands), we were very happy. As guests from WA, our daughter and her husband were very happy and very impressed. We will definitely stay again.
Thank You Tina

“Great base to explore North of the Daintree river”

We had a great stay at Saraswati's Oasis. The house was clean and had all the facilities you could ever need when you want to get away without missing the comforts of home - including a fantastic kitchen and meals area for self catering. The house is peacefully out of the way with no neighbours in sight or to be heard. The owner was unintrusive and provided some maps and tips to make the most of our time up North.

“Comfortable, well-equipped holiday house”
Reviewed December 19, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

The owner, Tina, was really friendly and helpful. The house was tastefully decorated, comfortable, clean and well-equipped. A good location for access to Cow Bay beach and local Daintree attractions.
The only minor drawback was its situation on the road to the local transfer station and the dust when cars drove by as our stay was during a hot, dry period.
The free use of internet and phonecalls was a big plus.
For the reasonable price, we would definitely recommend this holiday rental for anyone wanting to self-cater in the Daintree.

“Amazing oasis”
Reviewed August 11, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Tina was so welcoming and helpful. Extra little touches just makes you feel so special from the ticket paid for on the ferry to the bread and milk supplied in the fridge for our arrival. The house was so comfortable with a sprawling lounge to kick back on and access to the internet. If you don't fancy looking at four walls in a resort or motel style accommodation this is for you.
