Points positifs: Stayed in the bungalow which was gorgeous and cosy. Amazing rainforest setting. Friendly recommendations from the hosts.
Points négatifs: Due to the nature of being in a rainforest there is limited electricity and water supply - be prepared not to use a hairdryer or take long showers! Able to use the main fridge in the kitchen to keep things cool and share the cooking facilities.
Points positifs: Localisation exceptionnelle au cœur de la forêt, la maison de Trish et Kev ouverte sur la nature est splendide. Ils sont très sympathiques et accueillants. Nous étions comme à la maison!
Points positifs: Excellent views when having breakfast. Friendly hosts.
Points négatifs: No internet reception on the phone. No wifi provided. No TV. Not much to do after 6 pm when it is dark. Creaky bed; could hear other guests so not much privacy either. Didn't realize that the kitchen facilities were shared. One shelf in the fridge for all the guests. No microwave.
Points positifs: L’environnement, l.hospitalité de la maison
Points positifs: AMAZING! Everything about this place is so good - you will not regret booking. Already looking forward to my next visit. The place is beautiful in a wonderful location. Kev and Trish are so helpful and great people to spend time with over a cup of tea :) very insightful about the area and happy to answer questions and give local advice on all the good spots to go to.
Points négatifs: Nothing!
Points positifs: The setting is beautiful - in a tropical rain forest, removed from bustle, listening to bird songs and looking at nature. And although we were in the midst of a natural setting, we were also close to roads if we wanted to go anywhere. Trish and Kev, the managers, are very friendly, helpful and attentive. Our cabin was only a minute or two walk from the main house, yet it was isolated and had its own little access road. The breakfast was relatively simple but certainly more than adequate. The array of local fresh fruit laid out every morning was wonderful. I would certainly recommend Epiphyte and would be happy to stay here again.
Points négatifs: There are only two small things that I would suggest improving. The cabin has huge windows, which is wonderful for soaking in and feeling part of the nature, bit the addition of simple curtains would relieve any sense a guest might have of being exposed. The cabin is isolated and no one actually walked by or could see in, but the simple curtains or blinds would be good. A second item is the absence of telephone or internet/wifi services. We understand why there is no cellular service in this remote area, but perhaps a land line could be installed for contact with the outside if needed, and wifi. Perhaps this is not possible, but it's worth considering.
Points positifs: The lodge sits in beautiful and peaceful surrounds. The hosts Trish and Kev were extremely suited to run Epiphyte and we wish them all the best.
Points positifs: Trish was a great communicator.Kev was great support.Very healthy breakfast,great variety of homemade jams.Both obviously enjoy the place and meeting people
Points positifs: Super friendly and helpful staff! Tranquil and beautiful environment! Lots to do and see in the area. Fruits at breakfast are a winner.
Points négatifs: Small bed in the cottage was a little lumpy.
Points positifs: Where to start. The heart, the beauty, the location, the room, the hosts. The HOSTS! The company. Don't go anywhere else. Just book and I hope when you do you haven't taken the last room when I'm booking to go back.
Points négatifs: That I didn't stay longer
Points positifs: great location - close to the forest and attractions; friendly and helpful owners; beautiful mountain view overlooking the rain forest; quite and peaceful at night
Points négatifs: breakfast was too simple; facilities a bit old and simple; the driveway was very bumpy for my rental car and needs repairs
Pratique pour partir à la découverte de Cow Bay, Daintree Rainforest Retreat se trouve à moins de 5 minutes en voiture de Daintree Discovery Centre (centre de visites) et Promenade Jindalba. Un parking gratuit est disponible dans l'enceinte de l'établissement.
Points positifs: Great location, just over the road from the pub... where the meals are ok..good pub-style food. The property is set back amongst the trees, so don't be put off by the term "motel". There is an outdoor camp kitchen area for cooking. Rooms are comfortable. Hot water is variable as everything is solar, but that was not a problem. Easy access to all the Daintree sights. We stayed for 4 nights but could have been more if we had more time. Would recommend this property.
Points négatifs: All good.
Points positifs: This is as the name suggests a retreat. This is off the grid and with limited wifi coverage it's the perfect place to unwind and go through a digital detox. You are surrounded by trees and there is an abundance of birdlife during the day and throughout the night. The retreat's greatest asset is its manager - he is warm, charming and extremely helpful and it's clear he has a passion for the Daintree and Cape Trib.
Points négatifs: Nothing not to like.
Points positifs: Great location, very clean, friendly and helpful staff
Points négatifs: Slightly dated
Points positifs: Was quiet in the middle of the rainforest but close to shops pub and attractions
Points positifs: Beautiful location. Lovely room and very supportive staff.
Points positifs: Perfect position, comfortable and clean room facing the patio. Very kind owner.
Points positifs: Cosy, clean and roomy
Points positifs: Bon hôtel, lits confortables, petite cuisine et possibilité d'utiliser un barbecue. L'endroit est calme.
Points positifs: Clean
Points négatifs: Top spot, very clean rooms
Points positifs: Location and setting of the accommodation was awesome. Well equipped rooms to be self sufficient with a hotel only across the road for dinner.
Points négatifs: The shower pressure wasn't very good.
Points positifs: Very friendly staff and a special family experience

Points positifs: The breakfast Marion made everyday was delicious. The location was right in the heart of the rainforest so was able to sleep and wake to the wonderful sounds of the jungle.
Points positifs: The location, in the heart of the rain forest, and helpful advice from Marion were excellent.
Points négatifs: The weather (it rained a lot).
Points positifs: Really an oasis. Charming settings in the rainforest, beautiful furnishing and garden.
Points positifs: What a beautiful timber house in the jungle! Decorated with an Asian theme, all wooden floors and paravans. Large windows allow the greenery of the lush garden in. We booked the two rooms and had the house for us.
Points négatifs: There is no telephone signal in the area - the nearest point to get a signal is a bungalow hotel a few km away. No wifi of course, so there may be a problem for internet addicts. Not a negative but something to consider - there is no village or any kind of real settlement in Cow bay - just houses dispersed in the jungle. A couple of hotels nearby offer meals...that’s about it in terms of “civilisation”. None of the beaches north of Port Douglas is swimmable because of crocodles.
Points positifs: - Beautifully located in Daintree rainforest - Small scale with 2 rooms - Tropical style building and surrounding gardens - Helpful host
Points positifs: Peace, quiet, tranquillity, nature. Our host Marion was absolutely fabulous, great service, meals, wonderful advice on what to see and do, and very welcoming. Thank you Marion, you made our stay special.
Points négatifs: Nothing
Points positifs: Loved this property and our wonderful host Marion. This place offered us an authentic local experience and a little piece of paradise.
Points positifs: That we had the entire accommodation to ourselves.
Points négatifs: The proximity to other guest rooms.
Points positifs: The house was beautifully situated in the garden/ bush, with the central space opening out to the garden. It was full moon when we were there, and it was great sitting on the deck in the night with great view of the stars with bush sounds. The house is very handy to the Cow Bay beach and to other places up towards Tribulation. We saw some wildlife, including Cassowary's nearby. Marion is a very helpful friendly host with lots of local information. The breakfast is great. Marion generously made us an early breakfast on our last day as we had to leave early in the morning. We had a great stay and look forward to coming back one day.
