Description

Pineapple Pete's is a sophisticated and bespoke beach house in Port Douglas,Tropical North Queensland, Australia.

It is a 3 minute walk to the quietest stretch of Four Mile Beach, in Solander, and close enough to walk into town along the shore or to one of the nearby restaurants.

The house is the result of a long term renovation and of a lifetime of collecting objects and artworks from all around, which gives it its ecclectic and global character.

Pineapple Pete's will be perfect for a family get together, a group of friends or even two families. The house is very spacious and gives everyone the chance to preserve their privacy, even when staying with others. Young children are welcome to stay, don't hesitate to ask us to use all the baby and children gear that we have available.

The house has a total of 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and one outdoor bathroom, open plan kitchen and bar area, dining area, lounge area, back and front decks, laundry, heated pool and garden, on a 1000sm2 block.

The building is a prime example of open plan tropical living - the lounge area, dining and over sized kitchen flow onto one another seamlessly, surrounded by custom hand made Queensland Silver Ash doors and windows, providing a frame to the lush tropical native gardens around the property.

The orientation of the house, its numerous openings and the use of smart glass allow for constant cross ventilation and high energy efficiency, making it surprisingly cool even in the Summer months throughout the Wet Season.

All the bedrooms are air conditioned, have ceiling fans and soft weave blackout curtains.

The pool is heated in Winter by Solar energy.

All bed linen is good quality cotton and bamboo blend, organic cotton and linen.

Beach towels are provided.

THE MASTER BEDROOM

The Master Bedroom overlooks the pool and the mass of native trees that grow along and around the property, especially along the creek that runs alongside it. It is an airy and spacious bedroom, with a king size bed and it opens onto the garden through French doors on one side and bi-fold doors onto its own deck on the other . This bedroom has its own en suite bathroom, with free standing stone bath and double shower , a generous walk-in robe, with plenty of drawers, bench space and long and short hanging. It has a 40 inch TV, desk, it is air conditioned and has a ceiling fan. It is an extravagantly big bedroom and the most luxurious of the four bedrooms.

THE SECOND MASTER

We call it the second Master because even though it does not have the Master's outlook, walk-in robe or the luxury of the Master's bathroom it is a beautiful, calming and very special room - it has two large wardrobes and en suite bathroom and a quirky and quaint outdoor bathroom with shower, hand basin and claw bath, all in an extremely private and sunny courtyard, with lush plants that make it one of the most dreamy and special features of Pineapple Pete's.

This bedroom has a ceiling fan, it is air conditioned, has a 32 inch TV and it opens onto the front deck and the stoney garden.

THE SECOND KING

The second king bedroom has a king size bed that can be made up as two singles and this bedroom too opens onto the pool and back deck. It has 2 wardrobes, a ceiling fan, air conditioner, 32 inch TV and it is serviced by the bathroom across the breezeway.

THE SMALL BEDROOM

The small bedroom is perfect for two children or two teenagers. It has two long single beds but they can be set up as a King size bed,so that it can also accommodate a couple if required. It has a wardrobe, ceiling fan, air conditioner and elegant casement windows that open onto a little hideaway garden that was our veggie garden once upon a time.

THE KITCHEN

The kitchen has been designed for people who love cooking and love having plenty of space to move around as they do it. It has a generous caesar stone island bench, stainless steel bench tops, a 5 burner gas stove, an extra wide oven, microwave oven, toaster, kettle, coffee machine Sunbeam Cafe Series, family size fridge and freezer and all the little gadgets that one may need, from scales to stick blender, cup blender, etc, as well as numerous utensils, from muffin trays to garlic crushers, that we will provide so that nothing will hold you back from getting creative.

THE LOUNGE AND DINING

The Lounge and Dining speak with the strongest accent at Pineapple Pete's - a very global one.

This area showcases a myriad of artworks from friends, artists from all around, little gems discovered on Saturday morning's Garage Sale hunting, antique shops and whatever else makes us smile, from family photos to cooking books, old carvings from Papua New Guinea and boat's half models, evoking the family's past history of boat building and sailing.

The lounge area features 3 three seater lounges, TV and DVD player and quite a few of our favourite series and children's DVDs that you'll be very welcome to enjoy while staying at the house.

The dining , right next to the lounge area, features a dining table and seating for 8/10 people. It opens onto the lawn along the creek through casement windows, screened by an immaculate canvas of Malaleucas , coconut trees and other native species.

THE LAUNDRY

The house has a laundry located on the breezeway which features a 7 kg top loader washing machine, dryer and sink. There is a washing line at the end of the breezeway, to the left, which guests can use to dry their washing.

THE OUTDOORS

.

The BACK DECK is very much an extension of the lounge area inside and it is the one that we use whenever we have more than 8 people at the dinner table - it is right next to the BBQ, it sits 10 people quite easily and the dining table is perfectly located right in front of the kitchen's servery. The adjacent outdoor lounges are extremely comfortable and inviting and one of our favourite places to sit back with friends and family.

The FRONT DECK is the one that engages the most with the neighbourhood. It gets sun from early morning until sunset and it has a truly low key, beachy feel about it. It is lovely to sit on at different times of the day, especially late afternoon, as the sunlight gets filtered through the imponent paperbarks.

On the POOL DECK you'll find enough sun lounges and chairs to welcome everyone in the sun.

The pool has a solar heating system which will keep it at an inviting temperature all year around.

Overall Pineapple Pete's is an extremely comfortable home, very eclectic, with a strong taste of Mid-Century and hints of bohemian but with an unquestionable Tropical Australian identity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Holiday We absolutely loved our stay at Pineapple Petes, what a special place to stay. We had 6 adults and a 1 year old and the house was the perfect size. The decor is stunning, the pool is heated to the perfect temperature and the house had everything we needed including a really well stocked kitchen with all the utensils we needed. We were able to borrow everything we needed for our toddler including a cot, linen, high chair, stroller, lots of toys and books, making travelling so easy. And the house was really child friendly so we could all relax and enjoy our stay. Thank you so much to Sofia and Pete, we can't wait to return!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A destination Pineapple Pete's is destination in its self. A wonderful tranquil, exciting and welcoming place to be. The house is a treasure trove of discovery. It is a house to entertain spend time with friends, laugh and celebrate any occasion. However it is all this and more. It is also a house to seek seclusion and enjoy solitude ones own company. The house has all one could ask for space, a well appointed kitchen. The bathrooms are sanctuaries as are the bed rooms. The pool is a focal point. You can easily make the house the destination Port Douglas is a bonus. Your hosts Sofia and Peter are delightful from the wonderful warm welcome you receive you can only take away happy memories of your stay. A truly wonderful place.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection The perfect accommodation for everyone on every level. We have just had 9 wonderful nights in this beautifully appointed home. Two families of 4 and 5 with children from 2 to 7 years. The attention to detail provided by Sofia and Pete is incredible and has made for the most relaxing and easy holiday we have ever had. From the beautiful amenities, toys, books, pool toys to generous lend of paddle boards. Their taste is impeccable and the house is full of gorgeous art and artifacts, perfectly placed out of the reach of little hands. We enjoyed some wonderful family time playing Finska and spending time in the pool together. The location is great with a park at the end of the street and beach access for a comfortable 30min walk along the amazing 4 mile beach into town. I could go on and on. Sad to leave. Sure to return. Thank you

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't have been better Our family of 6 adults just spent 6 days here. We were met by Sofia and Pete on arrival and couldn't believe how beautiful the house was. It is so much better than the photos. My wife loved the quality of towels, beach towels and sheets etc. No expense has been spared with coffee machine, sound system, TVs, furnishings and pool. We spend many hours by the pool when we weren't at the beach. We have done a fair bit of travelling and this is by far the best place we have stayed at. Lovely people to deal with. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best place to stay Port Douglas! Wow Wow Wow...what a place to stay. Absolutely perfect from every perspective. Where to start...The house is incredibly spacious with lots of area's to relax and live a summery tropical life. It is decorated super personal and individually distinct with amazing artworks, books, pictures on the walls etc. The whole house is set up to please and be indulgent. From hand soap/shampoo/conditioner provision in each room to beautiful bedding with lush pillows, towels, throws. The kitchen is super well equipped with all sorts for cooking, baking, frying, BBQ, lots of bowls etc and a fabulous coffee machine (get some beans ground in town and take it home to make your own perfect coffee). The fridge had sparkling mineral water and a block of Lindt chocolate as a welcome. Standard staples, coffee and a range of teas are in the pantry. Each room has airco and fan and big open doors to one of the outdoor area's. The pictures don't show at all how spacious the whole set up is. We were there with 5 adults and 4 small kids (1,2,3 and 5 year old). We had two cots provided with bedding, clambu, a lot of toys, a whole bookshelf full of books for ages 0-10? And of course lots of pool toys. We all spend a lot of time in and around the house. The pool was heated and warm at all times so we were in the pool at least 4 hours each day. As the kids slept in turns we were house bound a lot but not one moment any one was bored. The kids had a lot of area's to explore as there are different little decks, garden parts, courtyards etc. There were times we didn't know where the kids were. Each night was different due to the many options for bathing and showering. A treat. Outdoor bath and shower with fairy lights in the trees. Or a huge double shower where easily all the kids and two adults fitted or...just a star light pool session. It feels like the whole house and content is totally new and extremely well taken care of. The house is about 300 meter max from the first entrance to the beach and perhaps an extra 100m to the playground with an other entry to the beach. We rented bikes with bike trollies where in each trolly two kids could sit. The cycle was over the beach about 20-25min to town. Also the wildlife park is only 2km away and you can go twice in 5 days for the same price. Kids loved it. If you want to do lap swimming, there is a 20m ish lap pool across the road, 10min walk. Taxi to town is about 13 dollars each way so if you don't rent a car, for occasional it is affordable. The taxi's just don't have kids seats so you have to take them on your lap or rent seats in Cairns. As it is only a few min drive (max 5) and everyone drives slow and careful we decided to have the occasional trip without the seat. The hosts have been great and warm to us. They even dropped off some Stand Up Paddle boards for us to use. The night before we flew I contacted the host in a panic as i thought I booked the wrong date but she responded (late night) that all was ok. I clearly needed a holiday. All in all a perfect place to stay with a family with kids, multiple family's or just as a couple and have all the space to your self.
