Property type house


About the property

Daintree Valley Cottage is a one bedroom cottage, offering outstanding views of 3 mountain ranges, and 12 layers of the Daintree Valley. Sit back on the sweeping decks of the cottage and enjoy incredible views of the Daintree valley and the most ancient rainforest in the world. The cottage is set on five acres of land giving the ultimate privacy and tranquility, although offering a majestic scene to your front view. Being self sufficient and one with the eco system to our area, the cottage runs soley on solar panels and watertanks, however electric power in the house offers full electricity with lights and fans along with the availability of running a bath spa tub for your relaxation and enjoyment. The cottage would suit a couple looking for a romantic and secluded getaway, a writer looking for that special place to create, birdwatchers, or anyone with the need to sit back and enjoy the beauty of nature surrounding you.

The Cottage

The cottage is unique and beautiful, built with love by its boatbuilder owner, his sons and wife. Hardwood floors, full kitchen and living room are equipped with all the necessities for your comfort. The open planned living room has a range of books, 32 inch HDTV and a DVD player. This leads to the dining room, with a dining table seating for six. The kitchen has 5 burner gas stove, electric fridge, and a range of appliances. The large bedroom has a queensize bed and the french doors open to the balcony and incredible views over the valley. The bathroom features a jacuzzi with large windows opening out to rainforest views. Being run on solar power and rain water, the system is fully automated offering full electricity and ample water, however, the usage needs to be respected. The deck on the front of the cottage is extensive, some of which is covered and some being open. Be at one with nature, as you experience an open avery to all the music of the rainforest. Under covered deck, a 3 seater couch can open to a futon, which can be used for sleeping or lazy afternoons. There are also two lounge chairs to enjoy the views and to relax. We also have a dining table with settings for four. This leads to an open deck where you can see the beautiful valley as you relax in the sun lounges. At night view the stars like you have never seen them before.

The location

The rainforest is directly behind you and a slow undulating property in your front yard opens to your scenery. At given times of the year the valley mist along the river floods with low moving mist that can offer a different view and movement daily.

Daintree Valley Cottage has a very soothing and relaxing atmosphere, and even though we are in a remote area we are just 5 minutes off the Daintree River and ferry crossing which allows you a simple drive to our nearest attractions, such as the cape trip drive and nearby hotels and or restaurants. River tours are available on the river which can add to your adventures as Crocodiles are often seen sunning themselves on the river banks, and fishing trips can also be arranged. Daintree village is just minutes away with Café’s and hotel restaurants and small shops, and the road north offering further locations of interest. We request that visitors are aware that we are in the rainforest, so to keep in mind that the natural ambiance is surrounding you and that no domestic animals are allowed, preserving our wildlife in the area. At times special sighting have occurred of our natural wildlife with much enjoyment. We welcome all guests with the respect to the property and environment.

Hidden in the rainforest

  • 5 of 5

We spend 5 days for our honeymoon at Daintree Valley Cottage. We were not disappointed. Total privacy as it is a huge block. Behind the cottage is just forest full of bird life. Loved waking to the sounds of the forest. Besides the glorious surroundings, the cottage its self was quite spacious. The spa can in handy to soak sore muscles after a long hike through the daintree. There was definitely nothing extra that we need there. Oh the ferry ride across the river was a little extra exciting. We ended up getting a 5 day multi pass for the ferry which cost $54. But that gave us 5 return tickets. However the owners did include 1 return trip with the booking. Only advice is stock up on any food or drinks needed at mossman Woolworths. As there is no local shop anywhere near.

Its has been the best location to date. Total peace and quiet. We hope to be back.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in the Daintree. The cottage was everything we had hoped for - great views, quiet surrounds, a well-stocked supply of cooking tools, and a great base for exploring the Daintree.

We loved staying at Daintree Valley cottage! Relaxing and dining with the beautiful view on the deck was the highlight of our trip. Great location with all the Daintree has to offer in easy driving distance. Would highly recommend.

Well Worth It

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this place.

It's eco-friendly which means it does lack certain luxuries e.g. air conditioning.

But you know that when you rent it, so it shouldn't be a problem.

The lack of curtains was a definite downfall - I didn't want to wake up at sunrise every morning.

It is a beautiful, private and quiet location.

There is lots of bird life.

It has nice amenities.

The spa bath was great.

Watch out for the mosquitoes!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled to hear you had a lovely time in the cottage and enjoy the spa bath as well as the surroundings that the daintree has to offer, it is quite special. We do have the fans in every room and balcony to provide for a constant flow of air for comfort and this helps in the prevention of the mosquitoes disturbing you, and hope you were able to use some of the items left to also keep them away, sometimes after a rain that they are a bit more prominent. We are happy to consider blinds, but we honestly have never had anyone suggest that before as the sun comes from behind the mountain and house, although we always like to make everyone as comfortable as possible, so thank you for your thoughts. We hope you might be able to return in the future and if not please tell your friends. thank you for your visit and choice of places to stay.
