Welcome to Coconut Beach House, Cape Tribulation

Blissfully relaxed and spacious holiday home sleeps 8 people and set beside spectacular Coconut Beach in the Daintree Rainforest

Kick off your shoes and come on in

Welcome to Coconut Beach House, a blissfully relaxed and comfortable 3-bedroom private holiday home set beside one of the most spectacular and secluded tropical beaches in the world and just five minutes from the heart of Cape Tribulation.

Cape Tribulation is a tropical paradise where the Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef, around 2.5 hours north of Cairns airport, and 1.5 hours from stylish Port Douglas. Here in Cape Tribulation, life moves at a slower pace and on a 17 acre forest & beachfront property with your own track to Coconut Beach and 3 kilometres of white sand beach to yourselves* you’ll find the concept of time slipping away…

For the adventurous, there’s heaps to do in Cape Tribulation – snorkel trips to the Great Barrier Reef, ocean kayaking for the best views of the Cape and fringing reef, jungle surfing through the Daintree Rainforest canopy, guided night walks into the dark side of the forest, river cruises in search of the fearsome saltwater crocodile, horse rides along the beach and through the forest, exotic fruit tasting, 4WD safaris up the famous Bloomfield Track and reef and river fishing to mention a few.

Then again, there’s that empty 3km beach again,or a good book and a comfy deckchair.

*well a few of us locals pop down to walk our dogs most afternoons, but if you don’t get at least a kilometre of empty beach we’ll eat our sunhats!

I’m Gerry, the owner of Coconut Beach House.  I’m an Irishman by birth, but a Queenslander by choice.  I’ve lived in Cape Trib for 5 years with my partner and our two dogs, working as a carpenter and building homes.  In 2014 I was lucky enough to find this amazing property – half finished at the time – and over the past year we’ve turned it into our dream beach house. For me, there’s nowhere more special on earth than Cape Trib, so I hope you get to share a bit of the magic during your stay.
