Daintree Magic Holiday House

Waterfront Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
Daintree Magic is the closest accommodation to the beach. It is an exclusive, self contained holiday house, secluded deep in the heart of the Daintree Rainforest. Boasting spectacular ocean views of the Coral Sea, it is only a short stroll to the beach. Fully equipt with open plan kitchen, dining and lounge rooms, three bedrooms, two breezey verandas, spa bath with sea views, and much more this perfect escape sleeps up to eight.
There is a King bed, Queen bed, 2 single bed, and a huge, long lounge for sleeping. All rooms have beautiful sea breezes and lovely views. There are 2 lounge rooms, one at the front of the house fronting onto the beautiful verander, with a fire place and TV, and another lounge/ dining room, with an amazing long built in sofa lounge along two of the walls. This room also has a table and bench seats and draws with games, books and a few toys. There is a bathroom off the back verander and a large corner bath on the front verander, great for kids to play in or a romantic hot tub. Enjoy the sound of the waves and the ocean views from the hammock and the bath on the front verander.
There is a family sized Webber BBQ and a pizza stone to go in it, on the back verander and some cleaning equiptment as well.
It is a lovely 8-10 min walk down to the beach or a 1 min drive. Cow Bay beach is beautiful and clean, with crystal clear water is good weather. At low tide you can walk to the north and get to the 4th beach, over a little headland or if it is low enough wade around the rocks. There are gorgeous rock pools with seaweeds, crabs and fish along the coastal edge, great for exploring.
If you are into rock hopping you can walk to the south, about 20 mins over the rocks to Calf Bay, a spectacular little cove just south of Cow Bay, with no road access. Well worth the walk.
There are a few great fresh water swimming holes, Hutchinson Creek is a locals favourite, behind Mason's store and below the Heritage Lodge, (if you have lunch there, they let you use the swimming hole.) This one is known as the "Blue Hole" and crystal clear and blue to swim in.
Take a drive up to Cape Tribulation, enjoy some of the boardwalks along the way and check out the beaches, they are amazing.
This whole area is so spectacular, with ample tours to take or lots to explore yourself.

5/5 Excellent

We really enjoyed staying at Daintree Magic. I couldn't get enough of just soaking up the rainforest and it's changing moods while also enjoying the ocean view at this very tranquil and private location. The house was very clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing stay. The location was perfect for exploring the local area. Would love to return one day. We did run out of solar power, but it was easy to turn the generator on.

4/5 Good

Cute cottage in beautiful surrounds
Very cute cottage with the most beautiful views, everything was really clean and tidy, the gardens were immaculate. We did have major issues with the power, it would turn off so many times and was impossible for all 5 of us to have a shower as the water would turn off. It also would have been nice to have wifi and a TV and an oven rather than cooking on the BBQ. I get that it was an eco-friendly place but it was not as relaxing with the water turning off and on all the time. As tidy and cute as the house was I would not come back to stay here, unfortunately. Had this issue not happened and we could use more power (we were so paranoid 5 of us would have 1 light on at a time at night!) and had more access to appliances (like an oven) then we would be back for sure.

5/5 Excellent

Certainly Magic
Just the best place in the Daintree to stay. Central, stunning scenery, beautiful surrounds, peaceful, and relaxing.
