We booked this place on a whim, after consuming a couple of glasses of wine whilst googling weekend getaways…and we can’t believe our luck that we managed to spontaneously book such an amazing BnB! This place is incredible. Nestled deep within the rainforest, the Epiphyte BnB has gorgeous views of the Thornton Peak and is well located to explore Cape...

The reviewers from the past several months have summed the Epiphyte up pretty perfectly from our point of view (with the exception of the 1/5 star review that speaks of spiders 'as big as (their) head... a bit of an exaggeration!). I accidentally got up very close with a golden orb in the gardens and she moved a tiny bit...

We stayed in the cabin in the garden of the Epiphyte B and B for four nights - what an amazing setting it was! Beautifully situated, clean and comfortable, and very convenient for exploring Daintree. We were made very welcome, and the exotic fruit breakfasts in the main house, were a definite highlight! Many thanks to Trish for all the...

Epiphyte is in a great location nestled in the rainforest and not far from Cow Bay beach which is definitely worth a visit. What I liked was that Epiphyte was off the beaten track a bit so you feel in amongst the rainforest here and the property has amazing views. Trish and Kev were friendly and welcoming hosts with lots...

The Epiphyte is a magical place to stay - a place to revive, relax and connect first hand with the unique beauty of the Daintree Rainforest World Heritage area. It is literally located in the middle of the rainforest - absolutely stunning! We had considered staying there just a few nights and then heading down to Palm Cove or Port...

What a hidden treasure! Epiphyte was very clean and comfortable accommodation with a real focus on environmental sustainability; a veritable home away from home. A stunningly beautiful and unique property set in amazing private grounds within a rainforest garden. It had a large open deck with spectacular views of Thornton's peak & the surrounding rainforest. You could have just sat...

We've came across this gorgeous BnB in 2015 by accident and have been back in 2016 as it is an amazing place to stay in one of the most beautiful, awe-inspiring parts of the world, the Daintree rainforest :-)) Matt the owner is a legend and on the second visit we met Kevin & Trish who are managing it currently...

My husband and I booked 4 nights at this B&B for our honeymoon after reading the amazing reviews on Trip Advisor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beautiful Daintree rainforest accommodation near Cape Tribulation just 5 mins from lovely Cow Bay beach and overlooking the World Heritage Daintree national park. The main accommodation house is Queenslander style and has four en-suite rooms (single, standard double and large double/family size) each with private balconies, a large open-plan living area and extensive verandahs...the perfect place to relax and have a 'real' holiday!. For couples or small groups looking for even more privacy or independent accommodation, the Golden Orchid Retreat is a gorgeous self-contained cabin separate from the main accommodation house with views across the orchard to Noah's Range. Operating on solar power and rainwater as much as possible, the Epiphyte B&B has landscaped gardens to explore, views to take in and rainforest at the back door. Beautiful Cow Bay, where the rainforest meets the sea and reef, is a short drive away. A home away from home, The Epiphyte is airy, casual, friendly and breakfast featuring seasonal fruit is included in the room tariff. Help yourself to tea, coffee or a cool drink anytime. Play games, read a book, take in the stunning mountain views, swim, snorkel, visit the free board walks and/or join one of the many tours available in the Cape Tribulation, Daintree Coast area e.g snorkeling, fishing, canoeing, 4WD trips to Wujal Wujal, jungle surfing, night and day walks in ancient rainforest. It's a beautiful place to stay any time of year!! We'd love to share it with you. ... more   less
