Interaction with GuestsI really enjoy meeting new people and the large shared dining and lounge areas and open verandahs are perfect for meeting other guests. The NeighborhoodThe Daintree is a kind of Paradise - untouched primary lowland rainforest, pristine rainforest creeks and world heritage beaches. The reef, the mountains, the sea, the wildlife, the forest - it's amazing to explore but there's also nowhere more tranquil to relax! Getting AroundThere is very limited local transport in the Daintree and it is very expensive. You really need a car to make the most of your stay here. You can hire them relatively cheaply (e.g. $35/day) in Cairns which is less than the cost of a one-way bus ticket to get here. Call me or email to find out more information about car-hire companies if you would like help with this. Other Things to NoteWhile there is no wifi or mobile phone access available at the Epiphyte, it is possible for guests to connect to Telstra mobile phone services (and data) just 300m away down the road. Due to bank fees and charges we prefer cash for all payments. As there are limited ATMs in the Daintree please try to bring cash with you. We can accept all major credit and debit cards for payments however and there is a surcharge to cover the bank fees: 2% for all local credit and debit cards/ 4% for all international credit and debit cards.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Recent Reviews (full reviews can be found on our website.) 8/10/2014 for a stay in August. " "Magical Experience" We were lucky enough to be the first ever paying guests at ‘The Barn’, a house built some 25 years ago by the mother of the current owner, Frank. On arrival our breath was taken away by the house and its spectacular location... The property has an exceptional feeling of exclusivity – we could have been the only two people in the entire world, with not a sign (or sound) of any other humans or human habitation to be seen. Just the ocean and the ancient rainforest, although the activities and attractions of Cape Tribulation are not far away and are easily accessible... Unusually in this non mains-powered area north of the Daintree River, the house has sufficient solar panels and storage batteries to power a dishwasher and washing machine, both of which we used. Everything is on a generous scale – couches, tables, living spaces, pool, even the number of pots and pans. Peace and quiet, luxury and nature, adventure and wonder, all these you will find in the Daintree and The Barn. Wholeheartedly recommended." 3/10/2014 " " Fantastic view" For us this was a truly unique property that my parents, my partner and I thought was terrific. It's a great place to unwind and relax out on the balcony with 'million dollar' views of the sea and surrounding forest... One side can be completely opened up to the huge balcony that runs the length of the house and has a fantastic view of the sea. Just the perfect place to lounge around with a G&T reading a book, doing the crossword or having a BBQ!... One morning we were fortunate enough to encounter 3 cassowaries crossing the front drive way!!... Overall we found this place to be truly magic and a great place to escape and explore the Daintree." 27/9/2014 "We have loved our stay at The Barn. It is a spectacular hideaway, especially the pool!!! The kids were well entertained... they even spotted a Cassowary! Priceless!... over all it was truly a wonderful experience to have stayed at such an amazing place. We would love to come back & will be telling everyone who will listen about this little paradise... " 7/9/2014 "...wonderful, relaxing and fun stay at The Barn. It has been so comfortable and we love the whole layout, decor and character of the place. We would not hesitate to stay again and recommend you to our friends..."

                      Hello and welcome to The Barn, a wonderful place for your next holiday in the Daintree rainfores that's just opened for accommodation in July this year. The Barn is situated on the side of the mountain bordering the world heritage national park and only a 10 minute walk to the beach in the middle of the unspoilt rainforest of cow bay. Boasting unending views of the coral sea with the rainforest meeting reef the right in front of you, this is truly a place to unwind relax and forget about things for a while. The Barn is also a place where you won't forgo a bit of luxury, with three en suite bedrooms a fully equipped kitchen satellite TV billiard table, stereo system, BBQ and a swimming pool, this three story pole house with 30 ft ceilings and glass walls from the ground up on 3 sides will truly take your breath away. And with the odd whale spotted from any of the three front verandas, and cassowaries at the back door and monitor lizards trying to sneak a dip in the pool, and the insect bats flying around the floodlights at night, lets you know that you are about as close to nature as can get. The Barn Daintree holiday house has 3 bedrooms the one on the top floor has a king size bed and two ground floor with queen size beds which opens onto the pool area.

We can also do functions weddings etc. What to Expect The Barn is a self-reliant house in electrical power and water supply, the house is purely powered by solar panels. Because of this one does have to be efficient with power usage, we do advice you to use any equipment that uses high consumption of power such as the washing machine and dish washer, during the day when the sun is out, it is also important to turn things such as lights and fans off if not in use. The barn does have a land line, however phone signal and internet is currently not available, you can though easily get Wi-Fi at local restaurants for a very small fee, phone signals with 3G can be found at the Alexandra range look out which is about a 10 minute drive. One thing to also note is that The Barn is designed to be opened to nature and because of its solar passive design this house naturally keeps itself cool at all times, therefor there are no fly screens or air conditioning. Local Tourism There is plenty of activities and tours that Daintree has to offer, there are plenty of Daintree tour sites you can visit and check out all the things you can do and help plan your holiday.

To get here from cairns is approximately 120km which is about a 2 hour drive. You will also be required to cross the Daintree river using the car ferry, which includes a fee each time you use the ferry and we do provide one free return ticket. If you are coming up from cairns we recommend you stop by Woolworths in Mossman town, which is an hour's drive from the house to grab your groceries before arriving. Rates per night.

We try to give out deals whenever we can. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us. Recent Reviews 22/10/2014 "The pictures do not do this house justice, it's so much more impressive than you would imagine! Francis was the most welcoming person, greeting us at the house and showing us around - you will need to hear the history of the house for yourselves, it has great stories attached to it and you can feel this within the house (and you can see why Marlon Brando stayed here!) The pool was far bigger than expected and we swam each morning, with views of the ocean. The bedrooms were a delight, all with beautiful views of the coast and rainforest. Walking to Cow Bay was lovely, the pool table within the house fun. If you're looking for a modern, spotless, uptight house, this is not for you - the fittings are older, but this actually adds to the charm and the genuine feel of house. The windows are extraordinary and light fills the entire space from sunrise to sunset. If we did not live in England, we would choose this house every single summer to spend time here! Thank you Francis, we loved our time at your house." 27/9/2014 "We have loved our stay at The Barn. It is a spectacular hideaway, especially the pool!!! The kids were well entertained... they even spotted a Cassowary! Priceless!... over all it was truly a wonderful experience to have stayed at such an amazing place. We would love to come back & will be telling everyone who will listen about this little paradise... "

Each bungalow has private undercover decking with seating and self -contained cooking facilities. A significant area of the property has trees with discrete open spaces as well as tranquil spots to enjoy the flora and fauna. Further, there is a creek, meandering through Wompoo that ensures a welcome retreat for quieter contemplation.

There is no public transport in the area. Other Things to NoteWompoo Eco Retreat gets its name from the `Wompoo Fruit Dove’, a beautiful dove with an amazing purple breast, and green, yellow and white markings. This bird has a very unusual call. Listening to the Wompoo is like listening to a human conversation, but seemingly muted and far away. Our retreat is so named due to the presence of this lovely bird.

The NeighborhoodWhen you visit La Vista for a night or two’s stay, or a special celebration with family or friends, you’re entering a simply stunning environment that you’ll fall in love with and remember fondly for years. La Vista is not just two stylish post and beam houses built by hand, from sustainable timbers, not merely a wonderful place sitting high on the hill with Mountain and Ocean views – it’s an experience, a real taste of life in a tropical national park that many of our overseas friends tell us they’ve always been searching for, but never previously found. “A little piece of rainforest heaven, with simply stunning views, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Daintree National Park, a true treasure.” La Vista originally attracted us because of its absolutely amazing views right out across the breathtaking rainforest valley to Thorntons Peak (Queensland's 3rd highest mountain at 1320m) and beyond to the Coral Sea. Our superb decks, by the pool, and terrace, provide charming vantage points from where you can relax, enjoy food, drinks and the stunning Vista.

Guest AccessApproximately 13 Klms from the ferry crossing you will turn right into Buchannan Creek Road, heading towards Cow Bay.....there is an ice creamery on the corner.....stop here, the ice cream is delicious.

The property is at the end of the cul-de-sac to the left. There is car spacing for four vehicles and under cover parking for one vehicle. Make sure you touch base with Caz or Whayne re entry to the property if you haven't arranged to meet them there. They will instruct you regarding access to the cottage.

The NeighborhoodCow Bay is located amongst The Daintree Rainforest, it is a tropical rainforest region located on the north east coast of Queensland, Australia, north of Mossman and Cairns. At around 1,200 square kilometres (460 sq mls), the Daintree is the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian continent. Much of the Daintree Rainforest is part of the Wet Tropics of Queensland World Heritage Site, being listed by UNESCO in 2015 in recognition of its universal natural values highlighted by the rainforest. Along the coastline north of the Daintree River, tropical rainforest grows right down to the edge of the sea. The tropical rainforest ecosystem of the Daintree Rainforest is one of the most complex on Earth. Its plant diversity and structural complexity is unrivalled on the Australian continent and represents the origins of its more familiar ‘Australian’ flora. Besides all the scientific interest within this Daintree region there are many natural and often unique features to be explored. The landscape is one of striking diversity including magnificent scenery, mountain ranges, fast flowing streams and waterfalls, deep gorges and dense rainforest. There is outstanding coastal scenery that combines tropical rainforest, white sandy beaches and fringing reefs just offshore. This is an extremely rare combination. To the west of Cape Tribulation stands Mt Pieter Botte with its massive granite outcrops. The summit providing expansive vistas of undisturbed forest and to the south the skyline is dominated by the giant granite boulders of Thornton Peak – one of Queensland’s highest mountains. Should you choose to stay in The Daintree you will not be disappointed and I am guessing before you leave will be planning your next visit. Getting AroundCow Bay can be accessed via the car ferry at the Daintree River. There is a bus service from Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation and a shuttle bus service from the Cairns airport via Port Douglas to Cape Tribulation. Guests choosing this option will need to check on bus times as they can vary according to seasons and needs. Guests should also note that Moo Bay Muse is approximately six kilometres from the Cape Tribulation Road, so an alternative method of travel is recommended. There is a fee to travel on the car ferry over The Daintree River. One complementary return passage will be available to those who choose to stay at the Muse and are available via post on request. For those choosing to travel north of Cape Tribulation you will find that it is 4wd access only. It is highly recommended when travelling to The Muse for the first time that you arrive in the daylight. You can arrange for Caz or Whayne to meet you if you choose. Mobile coverage is spasmodic through The Daintree and not available currently at The Muse, keep an eye out, coverage drops in and out through out this part of the country and depending on your provider will determine the places you can access your ph. Other Things to NoteFar North Queensland is home to wonderful wild life, spectacular scenery and the opportunity to create significant life experiences. Some of the wildlife is dangerous, so please be aware of safe places to swim and walk. We do have water sport equipment and four push bikes available for personal use and ask that you use it wisely and accepting responsibility for your own actions and decisions(URL HIDDEN) We are so very lucky to have a fresh water creek running through the property, this can be accessed via the stairs at the back of the home area and is delightful to cool off in during the day. Mosquitos are seasonal and so we ask you to be aware of the need for repellent and coils during those times(URL HIDDEN) We suggest that should you wish to purchase food items, there is a large supermarket in Mossman and Port Douglas, prior to the Daintree River crossing. Closer to the Muse you will find some great spots to eat locally. We are also able to provide specialised catering for those guests who would like to access that option. Menus can be negotiated according to dietary requirements. We have included a book of suggestions that you can peruse when on site. The Muse has been set up as an escape from the city, whilst we have internet access, due to the location the access is limited and there is no mobile ph accessibility, The Muse does have a land line and you are welcome to make local calls from this. It is also worth noting that The Muse offers open plan living, so if you are travelling with a group and privacy is important then you may wish to study the photos to give you a good idea as to the layout of the property. Should you have any questions that are not addressed on this site, please email or call as we are very happy to go into more detail.
