“Simple luxury”
Reviewed 14 November 2006

The personal welcome from owners Carmen and Gillies sets the tone for your stay here. We slept in one of 4 or 5 gorgeous Balinese style huts, overlooking the rainforest canopy, surrounded by the sounds of exotic birds and insects so you feel truly immersed in the Daintree Rainforest you have come to explore. Although you are within a couple of metres to the next hut, the dense vegetation between you gives complete privacy. The rooms are simple but beautifully presented. Carmen seems to know everything about the area and is generous with her time to recommend excursions. If exploring the rainforest becomes a bit tiring you can spend the afternoon relaxing in the garden and dipping in a lovely freshwater pool. You can venture out to local restaurants in the evening, but I recommend gathering together with neighbouring couples to share a fabulous meal prepared by Gillies and the relaxed, jovial atmosphere both owners seem to create effortlessley. Breakfast is equally delicious, served individually at anytime you ask for. A quiet, stunning place, perfect for a few days of our honeymoon, we would definitely return if the opportunity came.
