Conveniently located around the Cape Tribulation, and just stone throw away from the pristine Thornton Beach. The cafe is just right across the road. It’s a small and cosy accommodation with a great view of the night stary sky away from the brightly lighted city. Eco friendly place with no air con but the weather is cool and air fresh.

Room with a view
The bungalow was clean but a bit smaller than expected. You could see Thornton Beach from our patio and at night you could hear the calming sounds of the ocean. We did enjoy our stay here.

Perfect beach bungalow
What a beautiful little beach bungalow right in the Daintree rainforest! It was clean, well presented and had absolutely everything we needed. It was wonderful falling asleep to the sound of the wildlife around! I would certainly recommend this for a place to stay
