The kitchen has an electric stove and dishwasher, toaster, juicer, blender and other appliances. This leads to the dining areas featuring a bespoke dining table with settings for six people. Expansive sliding french doors lead to the balcony, bringing the outside in, letting mother nature steal the show. Spend your evenings looking over the towering paperbark trees, watching the hundreds of birds flying past everyday. There is a small study area, a living room area with two three seater couches, DVD player, selection of DVD's, and digital television. There is a stereo with iPod/iphone attachment. A large air conditioner is available if needed.

The back gate leads to the pool. The pool is shared with eight other properties, however, all are residential so the pool is rarely used, and its most likely you will have it to yourself.

The location

The Port Douglas Artist's Treehouse is in the heart of Port Douglas, a few minutes walk to the beach, and aobut eight minutes walk to the marina and the main street. Situated on a quiet street, overlooking the towering paper-bark trees. The Treehouse fronts the residential block of "Paper Bark Gardens".

Port Douglas offers something for everyone. The distinctive laid back atmosphere, the breathtaking beauty of the scenery, morning strolls along palm-fringed Four Mile Beach, world championship golf courses, the marina, five star restaurants, local artist's galleries, boutique designer stores finished off with relaxing moments in the sidewalk cafes.

The Farmer's Market every Sunday is a wonderful mix of arts, crafts and local produce. There are amazing experiences diving spectacular Great Barrier Reef that can not be missed. Try a refreshing swim in the crystal clear waters of Mossman Gorge, or Spring Creek to revitalise the soul. Go sailing, spend a day lazing on the many (most empty) beaches.

Laze the day away on nearby Low Isles. Hike scenic trails to Cape Tribulation where tropical rainforest and coral reef meet. The area is unique, a rainforest that has been in existence for more than 120 million years and contains some plant and animal species not seen anywhere else in the world. or take a cruise up river and come face to face with large crocodiles and pythons in their natural habitat from the comfort and safety of a cruise boat.or just spend quiet days lazing about in the Port Douglas Artist's Treehouse. The balmy tropical climate year around keeps visitors coming back to Port Douglas again and again.

On booking you will be sent a large compendium filled full of local ideas of enjoying the area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had an absolutely brilliant time. The treehouse was just amazing - I just loved it in everyway. The second day at the Treehouse we went down to the little wharf at the end of the street and happened upon a fishing boat just back from sea after 2 weeks fishing - we brought a red emperor and some cod fresh off the boat!! Delicious:) We swam in the sea every day after a big walk along the beach up the hill and down into town for our morning coffee. Loved the book lounge in town. Read our books lying on the comfy couches upstairs in the treehouse - a small little yellow bird flew in a couple of times and hung from the light fitting in the lounge. The decor was so charming -and I loved the windows and sliding doors. The mermaid table was very cool. So many lovely touches I can't list them all!! My husband was on a bit of quest to find the best lamingtons - so we sampled quite a few on our explorations into the areas around Port Douglas.. The whole time we were on holiday I just thought we were staying in the best place in Port Douglas - it was lovely coming back to "our place" to cook up our meals and try out the new and exotic fruits we couldn't resist buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This unique artistic home, offered us a great experience which was beyond hosting us in Port Douglas. The house has everything one needs for a great vacation (baskets for the beach, big towels and beach toys and a cute pool), has all needed to have a comfy homy experience (nice soaps, soft towels, clean everything) and fun options to have the meals - bar sitting, big table, chairs on the balcony with BBQ and more... Above all it has a great creative artistic style with a humorist touch that adds a special edge to the whole experience. So glad we found this location it is the icing on the cake of any stay at Port Douglas:).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We had a terrific week at the treehouse. The house is both stunning/ecletic and also very comfortable - with plenty of different spaces to chill out. And very kid friendly with a huge toy box & a bookcase full of kids books & Dvds - our 2 toddlers loved it. A few blocks walk from the beach in one direction & the main cafe strip in the other. Loved it & we would very happily visit again.
