About this listing
Private and comfortable!
Nestled under the canopy on the edge of the rainforest, Ebenezer is a tranquil beauty spot. The charm of a fresh water stream is a stones throw from the Cottage.
During the wet season this gently bubbling brook becomes a spectacular water course.
The Cottage is an open plan design with shingle clad high ceilings. It utilises its Nth/Sth orientation for effective air flow ensuring a comfortable space even during the hotter months.
There is a queen sized bed and a trundle bed (a single and a three quarter single) in the sleeping loft and two sofa couches in the indoor living area. These can become double beds if required.
An additional outside shower under the trees is ideal for rinsing off after the beach.
Established gardens host visiting butterflies, bush hens, birds, goannas and cassowaries. Even the odd wild pig with sucklings is sighted foraging in the undergrowth.
The whole property is yours to enjoy apart from the administration section located under the main deck.
Vehicles are kept in the car parking area fifty meters from the Cottage. This ensures you get an uninterrupted garden view.
Arrival in daylight hours is ideal. Please bring a torch if you plan on a late arrival.
Interaction with guests
I'm social and will stick around if you need direction or help otherwise I'll leave you to enjoy your privacy.
Other things to note
Ebenezer is not recommended for unsupervised children.
The Cottage is self contained and has all the things required to make your stay comfortable. Sheets and towels are supplied.
Food shopping is ideally done in Mossman or Cairns before arriving. You will find the selection greater and the prices friendlier.
We are off the grid and run on alternative power combining solar, micro water turbine and generator depending on the season. High usage power devices like hair dryers are discouraged.
No pets please.
The kitchen is hand crafted local timber. Please treat it with care and use cutting boards provided for preparing foods or placing hot pans.
At heart I'm an adventurer. Relationship to the world around me is a never ending source of interest and fascination.
Being in the Daintree started as a means of living a simpler life but as we all know, life is not simple with its many unseen complexities.
Today Ebenezer reflects an evolving harmony between my environment and my inner world. I count on your stay leaving you with more than a comfortable roof over your head.
