Daintree Rainforest Bungalows by aussirose: Best Accommodation in Cape Tribulation

I every rarely give accommodation top marks. The Daintree Rainforest Bungalows gets top marks from me because of Ed. Ed, the owner made our stay so welcome that we all were just thrilled with the accommodation!

Right from when we arrived, Ed made us feel welcome. After we had settled in to our bungalow, Ed invited us down to the BBQ area where he proceeded to give us a run down on the establishment and helpful advice of what to see and do. All this whilst sharing a couple of beers with us. You simply just do not get that lovely personal and down to earth experience everywhere.

Ed... mate... you rock! And I will take the opportunity to tell everyone about you and your lovely little bungalows to which you built yourself!! :o)

Daintree Rainforest Bungalows: Daintrees hidden gem.

As part of a Virtual Tourist pre meet road trip I booked Daintree Rainforest Bungalows situated in Cow Bay for a Daintree Wilderness experience for this group..we were thrilled with the well appointed Bungalows and grounds in this wonderful area.

Solar and generated power added to the experience of being in the Daintree Wilderness.

Everything was spotlessly clean... these are well built Bungalows fully screened for those forest bugs but just in case bug spray is provided. The area in the Bungalows are quite spacious and can sleep up to 4 people.. all bungalows have an ensuite and pedestal fans and have a queen size bed and 2 single beds.

The BBQ area has full facilities to enjoy a meal under the stars.

Waking up to a bird chorus is much better than any alarm clock and the night creatures come out to play but believe me you are very safe and nothing can hurt you.

Ed the owner will welcome you with a drink and explain to you about the generator and water supply etc....he was so informative about the Daintree Rainforest area.. I really was impressed with these Bungalows.

Besides being enclosed in a beautiful rainforest setting I really loved the well appointed and spotlessly clean bungalows which were thoughtfully built for guests to enjoy the wilderness whilst inside the fully screened windows.

The BBQ area was a highlight because cooking a meal and enjoying the ambience of the rainforest around me was a great experience.Minimum stay is two 2 nights.
The cost for a two night stay per couple in a Bungalow as of 2014 was $125 night = total $250
Extra person $25 per night =$300 for 2 nights
4 people $175 per night = 2 nights total $350.

Check in from 2pm to 7pm.

Ferntree Rainforst Lodge: Excellent Value & Quality

"Fernies" Is very clean and affordable for the traveller who likes cleanliness and access to the local sights. With 48 dorm beds, 13 double rooms, 19 two bed Chalets, and 8 Suites it suits all tastes. All rooms come with A/C and a fridge it has a share kitchen and entertainment room including 2 TV's which are rare to find for that special Football game etc. It has 2 swimming pools and an awesome restaurant called Cassowary's Cafe serving Pizza, Pasta, Steak & Salad you cant go wrong. A$30 Dorm, $108 Double, $165 Suite & Chalets. You can always negoitiate depending on time of year. 10 minute walk to the beach and supermarket. Take a torch though as there are no street lights and it can get quite dark. This is the sort of place you want to stay if your sick of partying and need some down time in a clean place that is still close to the beach and village.

Cape Tribulation Hostel: Affordable accomodation

Very clean and pleasant. I was last there in 1999. It's so close to the beach too!

There are bar facilities that also serve up some yummy food.

There are dormitory and private room accomodation styles at affordable prices.

When I was there in 1999 (not sure if they still do this), due to staying 4 nights, they also offered a pick-up from my hotel in Cairns (and back). On the return, they would take a detour via the Daintree River to see live crocodiles and also take you into the Daintree National Rainforest too.
