Tropical Far North Queensland
We are three and half hours door to door from Sydney to Clifton Beach, 25 minutes from the International Airport at Cairns to the best of the Northern Beaches. Beachfront reserve 7m from door to sand, 12m to the water. From our front deck you drink in the best views in Palm Cove: Scout Hat and Double Islands. Between you and the beach is a lone giant Melaleucca (one of the features of the area) and some Palm trees.
Gaze at the mountain view on the rear deck, stroll through the fully open back pavilion along the 16 metre deck, through the front pavilion to the front deck for a view of the Islands and the water. After drinks on the front deck and slipping into the privacy of your own pool off the central deck, have a tropical evening BBQ on the SSteel BBQ, North Queenslands most artistic outdoor kitchen. Dine on the deck, alfresco under the huge shade sail.
Turn all the lights out and take a late night dip in the pool to fully appreciate the luminous feature tiles.
There are fans and air-conditioning, but you wont need them, the sea breeze cools you and takes away any humidity.
In the morning enjoy a coffee with our Nesspresso De Longhi coffee machine, if you are lucky you might see the dolphins playing beyond the waves from the beach, if you are really lucky in March you might see a croc!
Its tropical, its very quiet, discreet and secluded and its luxurious. But, its everything Far North Queensland: Beautiful sand, no surf, never ever cooler than 24C even in the dead of winter! Crocodiles, box jellyfish, coral reefs, lush tropics, sun and water.
