The Rocks Holiday House
Your children will love this place. A huge house which sleeps up to 7 with 4 bedrooms, a large study and an enormous living room leading out to the deck with an amazing view of the rainforest and mountains beyond. Best of all there’s 2 acres of orchard and paddock (fully fenced) leading down to The Rocks. The Rocks is a beautiful swimming hole on Freshwater Creek and has long been a favorite with locals for picnics and as an alternative to the beach. The creek runs through the rainforest, clear and cool, straight of the mountains above Crystal Cascades. This is adventure land for kids. You probably won’t see them all day because there are so many exciting places to explore and trees to climb.
There are plenty of other things to do nearby. The tennis courts are walking distance, the horse-riding centre is just up the road (1km) and the beaches are 15-20 minutes by car.
The rainforest shares its nature with us, green tree frogs, the ulysses butterfly and an occasional goanna. Enjoy birdwatching and or chill out on the extended timber verandahs with a refreshing cool drink.
This is the house for families who love outdoor living with plenty of space, yet so close to Cairns central. The house will only be available for this year and then the owners are returning home.
The property is available for short and long term. This newly listed property by the owners of the ‘Rainforest Family Retreat’ (http://www.stayz.com.au/23690).
