Description

Make your holiday eco-friendly!! Bedrock is now powered by and supplies SOLAR electricity to the grid.

BEDROCK is a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom architecturally designed home. The downstairs room is styled as a self-contained apartment that includes a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, TV with DVD player and living area.

The home was designed to maximise the tropical breezes and views to the reef and islands. It emphasises the tropical indoor/outdoor Cairns lifestyle and provides a very relaxing experience.

Elevated into the coastal ranges, the breezes keep the house cool, but split system air-conditioning in all bedrooms and living areas can make it a little cooler for those who like it so.

The freshwater pool with views to Double Island and the Scout Hut is a fantastic alternative to the beaches or for that quick afternoon dip. A poolside deck adds the option of entertaining by the pool as well.

Glass bi-fold doors run the length of the front of the house and open up to blur the division of the outdoors and inside and the front balcony can make you a part of the beautiful scenery.

The views are available from all bedrooms, including the downstairs apartment, but when the bi-fold doors are closed, roman blinds can be lowered to ensure privacy.

The Miele appointed kitchen with gas cooktop makes preparing food a breeze for those who still enjoy cooking on holidays. You can prepare and enjoy meals whilst looking out at the coastline and islands.

For those days when it does rain, the remote controlled gate at the street and remote garage entry ensure that you don't have to leave the car until you are inside the house. Once inside, the generous rear balcony provides an entertaining or recreational area protected from the wind and rain.

For designated lazy days staying at Bedrock, there are TV's with DVD players both upstairs and downstairs so adults and children can both watch their favourite programmes. The sound system upstairs also has iPod/MP3 player connectivity.

You are only a 3 minute drive to the heart of Palm Cove and its restaurants and bars, or it is a very leisurely 15 minute walk. Perfect for an evening meal or nightcap with a peaceful stroll home.

BEDROCK is perfect for a family holiday, but can be configured for a more intimate getaway. Come up and experience this beautiful home and location for yourself; you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic House We had a brilliant stay at Bedrock. It is by far the best equipped house we have ever stayed at. The little extras such as glad wrap, decent crockery and pots and pans as well as washing powder truly make it a 5 star property. The views are amazing and it was hard to tear ourselves away to leave. The property is a great size for 2 families to share. There were 9 of us (4 adults & 5 kids) and we found it very well set out. We will definitely return.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a holiday! Celebrating my 60th birthday at Bedrock with my whole family, including our 2 dogs, was something I had looked forward to for months.We arrived to find the house exactly as shown in the online photos - just perfect for a large group with everything you could hope for. The view was absolutely amazing and has made me long for a house with such magnificent water and island views. It was lovely to be able to splash around in the pool and have a few competitive games of table tennis. Within close proximity to everything we started our holiday with a trip to the Port Douglas markets and continued on for a dip at Mossman Gorge - a great day out. Our next days included a trip out to the outer Barrier Reef, white water rafting at Tully, the Kuranda sky rail and train and lastly jungle surfing and a river boat trip croc spotting. Pick ups from Palm Cove were very handy and supplies could be quickly purchased from the nearby Coles store only 5 minutes drive from the house. There were numerous restaurants to pick from in Palm Cove so we were spoilt for choices when it came to eating out. All this paled though, to our next experience. Two days before we were due to leave, our daughter in law suddenly went into labour (3 weeks early), giving birth to our first grandchild, a beautiful little girl, at Cairns hospital, 24 hours later! Amazing and somewhat stressful as, of course, we had nothing for the new arrival. Alex and Alexis came to the rescue. Tthey were incredible, allowing us to stay on at Bedrock for a few extra days, supplying us with information as to where we could get baby supplies and equipment and arranging for a portacot with linen to be delivered to us. What gems! They made everything easy for us and I cannot express my gratitude and appreciation enough! Well, the lovely bottle of sparkling wine they had left for us to celebrate my birthday ended up being opened for a different celebration altogether! If you are reading this review trying to decide whether or not to stay at Bedrock, all I can say is, if you do you won't be disappointed. Your children will love it, your pets will love it and you will have the time of your life in beautiful accommodation. They have thought of everything. Thanks again Alex and Alexis and who knows maybe sometime in the future, I will be lucky enough to visit Bedrock again. Maybe on my 70th! Baby Quinn sends you her love. Malcolm and Lorraine

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! We stayed in August 2014. The weather was beautiful (25-26 degrees). This property is in a quiet location, 5 minutes drive from Palm Cove centre and 5 minutes drive from Coles. The view is magnificent. The kitchen is well-equiped. We would highly recommend this property, one of the best we stayed booked on Stayz website.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! We cannot recommend Bedrock highly enough as it is faultless in our opinion. A super location with stunning views to the front and a beautiful backdrop of tree covered hills to the rear. Site photographs are in no way flattering while the house itself is very well appointed with everything you could possibly need. To top it all Alex and Alexis, the owners, couldn't have been more helpful or communicative, both before, during and after our stay there. Our only regret is that we couldn't have stayed for longer. Hopefully we will get to stay there again at some point in the future.
