From our guest book
"We stayed 5 nights with Marion and Brian at Cow Bay Homestay and wanted to stay three more weeks! The house, the hospitality, the rainforest, the creatures, the wine, the mix was perfect really. The Daintree requires a sense of adventure and staying there is a stunning reward."
"This is a place on earth that you just cannot imagine from Europe. A real paradise. I haven't completely recovered...In the middle of the rainforest, the homestay is an amazing house, 10 min walk from the beautiful beach where you can spend the afternoon without spotting more than a few tourists in the distance. Marion and Brian are very friendly and welcoming hosts, and they're happy to talk about the region, its history and its nature over a nice bottle of red wine!"
"We stayed at Cow Bay Homestay for four nights and had a wonderful experience. Marion is a very warm, wonderful and accommodating host. We had to get up very early the last day of our stay to go on a kayak excursion and she insisted on making us breakfast despite the fact that it was still dark outside. The house is run off solar energy for the most part, and it is great to know that even the bedside lamp is running off the sun. Absolutely fabulous!"
"Being back in one of Germany's cities and living in an appartment building again it helps a lot to know that somewhere in the universe there is an awesome place like Marion's Cow Bay Homestay. While you enjoy the little comforts of civilization like your private room with bath and shower you also will be part of the diversity of the rainforest as soon as you leave the house and walk for a minute. A feast for your senses: different sounds, smells and colours will conquer you and if you are tired of looking at walls of green just walk 15 Minutes down to the beach and enjoy the magnificent coastline of the Cape Tribulation area."
"Staying at Cow Bay Homestay was truly a lifetime experience. For those who want to escape from the tourist crowd, experience a sustainable way of life, indulge in nature, seeks comfort and not luxury, this place offers the perfect location and absolute tranquility .The host, Marion is a kind and warm hearted person and you will so comfortable and relaxed just like at sweet home."
