    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.

    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!

    Our stay here was just lovely, Trish was very welcoming and explained everything there was to know avout the Daintree and thing to here and places to visit. It's a great place to go if you want to get off the grid and just enjoy nature and the lovely rainforest. We were upgraded on arrival to a room with a bed outside so we could really experience the wildlife. Breakfast was amazing too! A lovely selection of unusual fruit grown in their garden and homemade jams. Would definitely stay here again :)

    Wonderful off the grid eco friendly B&B

    My husband and I had a wonderful stay for 2 nights. We were upgraded to the superior room since we were the only guests and our hosts we amazingly friendly and informative on the area. The room/bathroom/porch were comfortable and we had everything we needed and was private. The fruits and jams for breakfast were great and they even packed a fruit plate for our early morning bird watching boat trip. It was convenient to the area we wanted to cover our few days in Daintree. The view and grounds were beautiful and quiet. Note they are very Eco-conscience (which is great)- conservative/responsible water and resource use which is also requested of guests.

    Down Home Stay

    The hospitality was nice- always felt like a family meal sitting around the table with great people and beautiful views of the mountain in the middle of the rainforest. I was a little surprised there was no air conditioning on the property but appreciated the off grid , sustainability. If you’re wanting a more inner journey solitude experience you may want to book the private cottages as the rooms in the main house are close together with very thin walls and one can hear the activities in the kitchen/living areas. I had a good experience all in all.

    Heel fijn verblijf gehad. De ligging is geweldig. Omgeven door een tropische tuin en het regenwoud. Heerlijk vertoeven op de grote veranda. Grote kamer met privé-veranda. Lekker ontbijt. Goed gelegen t.o.v. de bezienswaardigheden/activiteiten. Heel vriendelijke en behulpzame eigenaren/personeel. Je schoenen moeten uit, enerzijds snap ik dat wel maar persoonlijk vind ik het niet fijn.
