Perfectly positioned in the midst of the rainforest, you are mid-way between Cape Tribulation and civilization in Port Douglas. Crossing the Daintree River by car-ferry is like stepping back in time your days can be spent beach-combing for drift wood or wandering naked along a deserted tropical beach.  Crafted from local timbers there's a snake bar created from 142 individual cuts of rosewood Mahogany.  The property comprises of  four thatch roof Tree Houses and a traditional Balinese style pavilion.  A cascading waterfall is an intricate part of the freshwater wet-edge swimming pool - complete with pool bar for those warm, tropical balmy evenings.
