Wonderful location for families, great staff.

Pros: Staff, location, atmosphere, facilities, food
Location: Cape Tribulation. Numerous walks. The owners are a font of information on local attractions, history and wildlife.
Dawn and the rest of her family couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Even the pets were lovely. It's a beautiful location among fruit orchards and forrest; not far from Cape Tribulation, the beach and other attractions. There are only 5 cabins and they're a reasonable distance apart (20 metres or more I'd guess). Because electricity is primarily solar generated there's no fridge in the cabins, but space is provided in 2 large fridges in the communal kitchen. The kitchen and attached lounge/dining kitchen is located in the old homestead and gives a wonderful view of what life liked to be for residents in Far North Queensland. The views from it into the thick surrounding rainforest are lovely as well. All the exotic tropical fruit provided for breakfast was gorgeous. The cabins themselves have electricity, power points, hot running water, air conditioning (we didn't need it in August) and are very well cleaned. Lucy the Kelpie/ Border Collie dog was a standout for my 2 year old. All the pets though are very evenly tempered and obviously used to dealing with boistrous youngsters. If you're of a technology dependent bent keep in mind that mobile phone reception doesn;t seem to have penetrated as far as Cape Trib, at least not with Telstra or Optus. Which means you probably won't be accessing the internet. On the plus side, no work emails!

Really close to nature - beach, forest, fruit!

Pros: The cabins are clean, tidy and modest - the farmstay is perfect for those who are looking to get close to nature and wake up to the sound of birds.
Location: Cape Tribulation offers some great snorkelling, beautiful beach walks, and lots of nature.
My partner and I stayed at Cape Trib Farmstay for only one night, and wish we could have stayed longer. Jeremy was a very pleasant host who know a lot about the area, and was very hospitable (he even called up our tour company to confirm or booking for the following day and arrange pick up). We were disappointed that we couldn't stay for one of the fruit tastings - there are plenty of delicious tropical fruits growing on the farm - but we were really impressed by the lovely breakfast fruit basket (along with homemade jams, toast, tea and coffee) that was left for us in the morning. The kitchen facilities are shared, but the cabins are very private. There are only a few cabins on the property, and we found the stay very peaceful and relaxing. Thankyou for a wonderful stay!

Cape Trib Farmstay

Pros: Close to the top of Cape Trib area and it had a local feel which was so lovely - NOT a generic hotel feel.
Cons: Maybe some solar lights down the road to the cabins from the house, just to mark out the road when you are walking in the dark.
Location: Whet Restaurant, grocery store, snake house (which is where the ziplining and oceankayaking leaves from) and boardwalk to the beach / rainforest walk.
It was a lovely place. Cute little cabins, modest but well provided for. We didn't need much room as we were out most of the time. The staff were very knowledgable about the area and about other tour operators and were wonderful in being able to book the local restaurant for dinner for us and also called arrange one of the tour operators to pick us up at the farmstay. The tropical fruit tasting that the farm stay offers was a fantastic experience that we chanced upon. (As I have always wondered about all those exotic fruits that I have never tried.) Our only regret is that we should have stayed longer! So much to do.
