Holiday Houses

The Daintree is a very unique rainforest experience, and to gain the most out of your visit we recommend a stay of at least 3 nights to truly appreciate this region. The Daintree Rainforest is a great place to relax and unwind, and what better way to enjoy the rainforest experience than in your own unique holiday home. Each holiday house has is very special with its own unique features, whether situated by the beach, next to a private waterfall or high up in the hills overlooking the vastness of the Daintree Coast, the experience and beauty will blow you away. For those who prefer the comforts of home, then a self contained holiday house is the ideal option. Perfect for families and couples, you can experience your own piece of rainforest paradise, in peace and tranquillity.


Living in the Daintree

The Daintree Coast is the largest renewable energy community in Australia. With no grid-connected electrical power north of the Daintree River, households and holiday accommodation must generate their own electricity. Many properties rely on a variety of hybrid-systems to draw from renewable energy sources, such as hydro and solar-power that is stored in large battery banks.

With a high level of rainfall and humidity combined with the necessity of self sufficient power, good building design is a must. Many holiday homes have been designed to blend into the rainforest and have the least impact on the surrounding environment. Extensive use of timber reduces energy needs, consumes less resources and minimises environmental impacts. To reduce the ecological footprint further, comfortable living in the Daintree relies on making use of natural air flow and light; adjustable louvre windows capture the cooling rainforest breezes, high ceilings and air vents allow heat to rise and escape, and a raised floor construction lessens the impact on wildlife. Wide verandahs extend the living space to allow for 'open living' all year round, meanwhile insect protection ensures local critters are kept out, for a more relaxed stay!

Most Daintree holiday accommodation implements a myriad of energy-saving features into their system, to allow for the creature comforts you would usually expect of accommodation closer to 'civilisation'. For example, Daintree Cascades Cottage & Roundhouse generates its electricity from the private creek & waterfall which passes directly by the retreat. Daintree Magic and Daintree Seascapes at Cow Bay operate solar panels to power the fans, overhead and bedside lights, TV and DVD. The refrigerator, stove and hot water are run on LPG gas, and the water supply is from rain water collection tanks. These luxury timber holiday homes are elevated to maximise the prevailing sea breeze and sweeping views. Daintree Views has a combination of solar, battery and generator power. There is no airconditioning, however the property has been designed to capture the natural air-conditioning from high on the mountain.
