  • Does the property have room fans or air conditioning system?

    The house is an Ecco friendly solar powerhouse. There is no main power source in the Daintree. We are totally self-sufficient. There is does no airconditioning but fan in every room. The yurt design is cool and comfortable in the summer months.

Our unique house is set in the heart of Cape Tribulation, world heritage Daintree Rainforest. The house is set on 5 acres of rainforest, walking distance to the beach, fresh water creeks, bars, restaurants, tour adventures & local supermarket. The house is for families, artists or a fantastic house for friends to get away. The House is a hand built yurt design with octagon panelling and light-filled interior dome. Constructed from a range of timbers, Silky Oak, Oregon & Pine featuring a spiral dome ceiling with skylight. The large loft bedroom has a queen bed and two single beds that double as luxury day beds. The second bedroom has a queen size double bed, floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking the rainforest. The cosy enclosed living room is open plan with a neat and well-equipped kitchen. The living area has comfortable couches and beanbags. The House is stocked with games and a surround sound entertainment centre with blue tooth connectivity. Double glass wood frame doors lead out to a vast covered verandah living area with a long dining table and plenty of relaxation space for lounging in beanbags. The Bathroom has a bath and shower in one.

Nathan and I have lived in the area for 25 years and live on a fruit farm in Cow Bay. Nathan looks after the property, and I take care of the bookings. We have lots of local knowledge to share. Nathan loves to leave fresh coconut or fruit from our farm for guests to enjoy. Getting to the house Cape Tribulation is 155 kilometres and about 2 hours and 15 mins North driving from the Cairns international airport. Car hire is available at the airport, then head north following the well signed scenic road with possible stops in Port Douglas and Mossman town to the Daintree car ferry cost is AUD 27 return for visitors. We recommend a stop for supplies at Smithfield shopping centre just 15 min North of the airport, if you require some supplies. Mossman Woolworths is the last big supermarket and bottle shop before the Daintree ferry; there is a great local IGA in Cape Tribulation that is well supplied with all your basic needs. Once in Cape Tribulation leave the car, the house has heaps of parking space then enjoy the environment by cycling or walking.
