  • Can you do 4 beds .. as we are 4 single ladies

    Thanks for your question. None of the rooms are really suitable for 4 adults. The 'Superior Double/Family' rooms are suitable for up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. For 4 adults it would be best to take 2 rooms with 2 in each room.

  • do u have a cottage with two separate bedrooms please?

    Sorry but both the cottages have just one bedroom area. Golden Orchid has a separate bedroom (1 queen bed / 1 single bed) with en-suite. Hibiscus Cottage is more like a studio apartment with a queen bed at one end and 2 single beds in an open space.

  • hi, which rooms (apart from the cottages) have cooking facilities, if any. What’s your cancellation policy re Covid (we’ve just had to cancel our trip and lost money). thanks, Tiffany

    The rooms in the main accommodation house can use the shared kitchen but there is only one fridge as electricity is all solar and batteries so quite limited fridge space for guest's food. Lots of freezer space and several great restaurants nearby.

  • Hi, what cooking facilities are available? Thanks

    The main kitchen in the common area is available for guest use (lunches and dinners) however there is no oven or microwave - only a gas cooktop. There are a number of very nice and not expensive small local restaurants and cafes nearby so there is plenty of choice for nice meals locally. If you do plan to bring food and cook yourself please be aware that because we operate entirely on solar, there is only one fridge and limited space available in it for guest use. We can however provide and esky and ice if required for additional food. Shopping is limited up here in the Daintree so certainly you want to buy food on the way up - Mossman has an excellent large Woolworths supermarket right next to the main highway as you come into the centre of town and it's only one hour further on to us so that's the best place to buy anything you need. Look forward to seeing you. Best wishes Matt Epiphyte B & B

The Epiphyte B & B borders the Daintree National Park (World Heritage area) and overlooks stunning Thornton's Peak, the highest in the region. We have over 8 acres of grounds - both rainforest and gardens - plus a lovely mountain creek at the back of the property. Wildlife abounds and it is a wonderful place to spot birds, explore the grounds or just relax and soak up the tranquil ambience of the Daintree.

I first came to the Daintree when i was still in my teens and loved it so much I came back to live a decade or so later. I love nature, wilderness and the outdoors - the Daintree has it all for me... forests, mountains, rivers, beaches, reef. And I enjoy sharing what I know and love about this area and other regions of Australia with our guests.

The Daintree has a huge range of activities from kayaking and snorkelling tours on the reef to birdwatching, crocodile spotting, horse-riding, jungle 'surfing', guided day and night walks, boardwalks, ice-cream companies and world-class information centres. There is so much to see and do you really DO need 4-5 days up here... don't spend too much time down south - this is the 'real deal'!!!
