Beautiful place to stay. Amazing hospitality. Breakfast of fresh tropical fruits from the orchard was a bonus. As was relaxing in a hammock at the end of a busy day. Highly recommend.

If you want an authentic rain forest experience where you truly feel you are living in the jungle, this is your place. If you are okay with slighly rustic, off the grid, etc., you couldn't ask for a better experience. The owner, Matt, is incredibly knowledgeable about the Daintree area and the best ways to visit it.

This is a unique property, in the rainforest. The area doesn’t have mains power so don’t expect aircon. There are plenty of fans though, and the shared areas of the house are open to the lovely tropical breezes. Bedrooms can either be open to the breeze or made as private as you choose. Matt prepares a very generous tropical fruit breakfast, and is friendly but professional and so knowledgable about the area. Good shower, great to be able to access kitchen facilities and lovely to have space to chat and hang out with other guests if you want to. No reflection on Matt or the property, but you need to expect that it can get very hot and humid here. After all, it’s the Wet Tropics!

From Matthew who was an encyclopedia of knowledge to the beautiful setting where we were fortunate enough to see a cassowary, we could not have chosen a better place to experience the Daintree Rainforest. I can’t say enough about the hospitality and the efforts to ensure that the Epiphyte is in harmony with nature. Absolutely fantastic stay!
