Peace, tranquility and total seclusion while only a short drive to all the local attractions in Daintree Village, Mossman Gorge, Cape Tribulation, Port Douglas and the nearby Atherton Tablelands (Cairns Highlands).
Extensive tropical gardens surround the private bungalows and dozens of mature tropical fruit trees ensure a constant presence of tropical butterflies and birdlife – the dawn-chorus is frequently spectacular. Birders will enjoy spotting many species from their own verandah.
The self-contained bungalows are designed for couples and offer comfort and privacy for two, or a maximum of three, guests. They are air-conditioned and each is equipped with an ensuite, kitchenette and private balcony - perfect for a honeymoon or a relaxing break surrounded by Nature. A complimentary tropical breakfast basket is delivered daily and other self-cook meals and drinks are available.
The 30 acre property has easy walking or jogging trails around the rainforest and through open grassland, home to families of little wallabies. The wetlands-dam is visited by water-birds and is home to turtles and, very occasionally, a shy platypus or two.
The Shed, an historic old building built using timber from the old butter factory once operating in Daintree Village, has a barbeque area, jacuzzi, dartboard and DVD player and the 'Un-fridge' houses a range of reference books, board-games and a complimentary book-exchange. if you need to keep in touch there is free wi-fi in The Shed.
Daintree Valley Haven offers something for everyone - nature-lovers and birdwatchers - adventure-seekers - divers and snorkellers - photographers - honeymooners - fishing folk - or simply an escape from the everyday hustle and bustle.
Listen to the silence – breathe fresh air – drink pure water from an underground spring ...
