To Daphne and Peter, thank you for having us. We have loved every minute of our stay here in this beautiful part of the country. Your attention to the little details has made it a home from home. Truly delightful!

Daphne and Peter, thank you very much for your warm hospitality. Daintree Valley Haven is a fantastic little gem. Great setting, comfy and practical bungalows, very pleasant breakfast - the sights, the sounds, the smells of the surrounding nature is awsome! So happy to have stumbled upon your B&B by pure luck while exploring the back roads. Only regret is that we have to move on and cannot stay for a full week.
Marc and Norman - Toronto, Canada - December 2016
IT'S SO QUIET!! A wonderful place to stay. Really enjoyed the great yoghurt, jams and special fruits not to mention the barramundi and steak/sausage packs! It has been a pleasure to experience nature at it's best. Congratulation to Peter and Daphne for a job well done!
Jane and Neil - SA - October 2016
A very memorable experience in this quiet corner of the world. We loved the guided bird tour with 'Sauce' and waking up each morning to birdsong. Life as it should be - thank you so much!
Bob and Kelli - Oregon USA - September 2016
Thank you for affording me a most comfortable, peaceful and hospitable retreat. I've enjoyed every minute of being here, including the rain! Your location is special. How lovely to enjoy the birds, butterflies and flowers. Thank you. To quote a translated Dutch saying - "I came in as a stranger, I go out as a friend". All the best with your future endeavours.

Daphne and Peter - we can see why my sister, who stayed here 5 years ago, had such high praise. Thank you for giving us a tour of the property, explaining the various trees and birds. We had a truly rested and comfortable holiday in amazing, unique surroundings. PS Home-made jams were delicious!
Chuli and Anil - Melbourne - August 2016
Thank you for sharing your wonderful haven and enabling us to de-stress with nature and nurture! The best bird walk we've had in the Daintree is here at the Haven. And as with so many of your guests our stay was enriched with Sauce (Daintree River Wild Watch) at your advice and we were guided to yummy feasts at Whet, not to mention Daphne's feasts found in our little Castle here. We leave with ten thousand memories and Lord only knows how many thousand photos to reinforce them. Thanks for the "old technology" (books!) we used to help identify some of the birds and beasties we encountered. Bless you both and this wonderful place.
Mary and Tony - S Australia - July 2016
An absolutely perfect place to experience the magnificence of North Queensland rainforests! I came to try to photograph birds and butterflies and was rewarded with more variety than I've ever seen before surrounding me both in the cottage from the well-placed patio, to the walking trails throughout the property ... Loved my time here, thank you Daphne and Peter and could not have asked for more caring hosts.
Jill - Tasmania - June 2016
Peter and Daphne, you have perfectly captured the spirit of the Daintree rainforest. The name of the room - Cassowary Castle - was a constant reminder of the real reason we must protect this stunning and special environment. And we must do so with full respect for the men and women who had the vision to create the facilities, including the tourism infrastructure, that will allow generations of visitors to come and appreciate this region and it's natural treasures. Thank you for your authentic hospitality.
Joel - USA and Port Moresby - May 2016
Dear Peter and Daphne - We can't say enough how much we loved it here at your beautiful place! Truly a haven for anyone who loves being out with nature while still wanting to enjoy their creature comforts! You made us feel so welcome from the time we arrived until we had to (unfortunately) leave. Thank you so much for the delicious breakfast - the jams were amazing!!! - and for all the info and ferry tickets to Cape Tribulation. We will be spreading the word when we return home. Thank you both for letting us be your guests at your beautiful haven!
Kathi and Patrick (originally from Maryland USA, now living in Wellington, NZ) - October 15
This place is incredible! Even better than the description on the website, which doesn't happen very often! We so much enjoyed being in the forest and hearing so much life in it at night. Thank you Daphne and Peter for sharing tips, good addresses, cd, excellent menus and wine and exceptional breakfast!
Bernard, Fabienne and Killian - Switzerland - October 15
Sunbird Bliss! A wonderful 5 days of birds, butterflies and sumptuous breakfasts on the balcony, and relaxing spas at night. Thank you.
Sue and Dave - September 15
Enjoyed the relaxed and quiet atmosphere very much. VERY comfortable bed and FABULOUS pillows (after very dodgy ones in past few hotels)! Enjoyed the breakfast fruits, home-made yoghurt and jams as well as the local coffee and tea. Truly a haven from the city life and from living on a busy road.
Judith - July 15
A truly unique experience for us - thank you. Lovely breakfast, kind, helpful, knowledgeable hosts, yummy marmalade and yoghurt. Stunning serene location, the name says it all - Haven! Thank you again.
Pete, Linda, Eloise - July 15
Daphne and Peter, words are not enough to describe this wonderful part of Heaven. You have been wonderful hosts. You have helped us enjoy our 35th wedding anniversary, thank you for everything. We will come back again one day, "not at State of Origin time, Peter!" Well done Queensland, super win but you, Daphne and Peter, way excelled that effort. Again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Marie and Peter - July 15
Thank you Peter and Daphne for making such a delightful experience possible. We expected much before coming, and received more than we had dreamed of! Thanks again and best wishes.
Cliff and Meredith - May 15
Thank you very much indeed, Peter and Daphne, for another wonderful Aussie experience. Our stay was heavily overshadowed by the side-effects of cyclone Nathan (we have never experienced prolonged rain of such biblical proportions!). However, we would not have missed the experience for anything. You looked after us like long-established friends rather than just some more tourists. We enjoyed sharing common interests and life's rich tapestry with you and even the rain could not spoil your little patch of Paradise!
Roy and Liz - March 15
... Enjoyed the ability to get the feel of FNQ without any distractions (cars, TV, phone, even people!). Saw 9 bird species I hadn't previously ... Buff-breasted Paradise Kingfishers (lots), Lovely Wrens and a solitary Superb Fruit Dove - that's plenty of colour! ... Green Orioles are constantly calling, competing with the frogs ... The sounds are unique! ... So thanks Peter and Daphne, we've enjoyed your world, your accommodation and your company!
