Fairy Creek Cottage in the Daintree rainforest is designed to relax and recharge your batteries, with eco-friendly technology in mind. Close to many rainforest walks, pure water creeks, local swimming holes, restaurants and amenities and Cow Bay & Thornton beaches.
Fairy Creek Cottage offers private rainforest, swimming hole/creek and unique privacy. We are situated across the Daintree River at Cow Bay in the Daintree National Park area on the way to Cape Tribulation.

The space
Our property is on a 1 Hectare private rainforest land parcel and has Fairy Creek running through it featuring a private waterhole. It is on a quiet col du sac having cleared areas around the house and walking tracks surrounded by conservation protected untouched rainforests and creeks.

Centrally located in the Daintree area it is close to Cow Bay Beach, Thornton Beach, swimming holes, general store, Daintree Discovery Centre, Jindalaba boardwalk and the Cow Bay Hotel/bottle shop. Also, close by restaurants are the Heritage Lodge and Link Haven.

The cottage is fully screened to keep insects and wildlife out. We have entertainment in the way of movies, music, books, and games available to be used.

There is an adjoining veranda, outdoor BBQ and firepit to enjoy, an outdoor table and chairs and another outdoor seating area on the banks of the creek.

The cottage rooms and gardens are immaculately looked after and cleaned. The beds and furniture are comfortable, ceiling fans are installed to provide some relief from the heat, and we have plenty of pure fresh drinking water available throughout the entire year.

We provide bathroom essentials and basic pantry supplies like tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, cooking oil, cereal, long life milk and 2-minute noodles in our full kitchen.

The cottage has two separate bedrooms for a maximum of 4 adults or 2 adults and 2 children, with a king size bed in the main bedroom and a second bedroom with 2 x single beds. Perfect for couples or couples with children or teenagers. If need be and you need to increase the guest number, please message your needs and we will try and accommodate your needs as best we can.

Please note as with most holiday houses in the Daintree, there is no tv reception or internet, mobile phone connection is unreliable with Telstra, but Optus works, and general connection and streaming can be achieved through an Optus carrier dongle or paid Optus data SIM card. New Telstra mobile towers are planned.

Lastly, the entire premises is OFFGRID which means that gas bottles are used for appliance, water comes from the water tank or from pumped creek water and electrical power comes from solar panels to a state-of-the-art modern hybrid inverter system through the day and batteries during the night. A compressor is on hand with autoswitch to charge the batteries when needed so please keep this in mind when staying and be ECO FRIENDLY. That is also the case with rubbish, please maintain rubbish separation as best you can.
