About Tina Gonsalves
We travel the world staying in holiday rentals, so we know what makes a great holiday rental, so you will love to stay in our abodes. I am an artist. My husband, Matthew Wild is a chef, and with our two children, we are passionate about living a life thats adventurous, creative and spirited, and this shows in our homes in North Queensland and Europe. We travel a lot, but when we are not, we live between Beautiful Port Douglas, Wonga Beach and Amazing Berlin. Come and stay in our charming homes oozing art, soul and creative vibes. Our homes are created with love, lots of hard work, and a passion of collecting and creating. We search the world for items we love. As much as possible, we recycle building materials, and upcycle furniture. Our houses aren't fussy or pretentious, but they are all about charming you, making you feel great, and celebrating the creative spirit.
Tina Gonsalves purchased this Townhouse in 2010
Why Tina Gonsalves chose Port Douglas
Both Matt and I have been based in the area since Port Douglas was a little fishing village in the early 80's. We bought this property from overseas, sight unseen, and poured a lot of love into it to turn it into our home. It was inspired by those beautiful North Queensland tropical homes of the 1970's that capture the sea breeze and embrace the environment. This property was our gorgeous home when the kids were younger. At the time, we were traveling a lot with our work, and then we holiday rented it when we traveled, but it was such a popular holiday rental (great position, great vibes, really spacious) that we then bought another home for us, and we now just share The Artists' Treehouse with other beautiful souls who seem to love it as much as we do. Each year, we spend time working on it to make it more beautiful, and more beautiful - so its an ongoing passion for creating the perfect home and the perfect holiday rental.
What makes this Townhouse unique
The house has a large set of sliding doors opening to the balcony, which looks over towering paperbark trees. The afternoon light, reflecting on the polished timber floor boards creates the most spectacular warm tones. I love sitting at the breakfast bar on the balcony, reading a book, watching the people walk by and admiring the copious amounts bird life. We also love the huge front deck. We built a great table, and having a few afternoon beers here is really lovely. For larger groups staying, having two living rooms is a real benefit - sometimes the kids can be playing downstairs, and the adults can be chilling out upstairs for an hour or two. Guest also love the huge front courtyard that the kids can play in safely. It. The kids room is perfect for the little ones.

Beautifully decorated artists home ideal for beach holiday.
Very happy with this accommodation for a weeks winter break in sunny Port Douglas. Gorgeous home chock full of interesting art and furniture. Everything is just as described and pictured.
What a fantastic house
We loved every minute and thank you for making everything so welcoming. Your house was the perfect launch pad to everything that the area had to offer and and even more wonderful place to come back to after trips out yonder. A glass of something cooling and white on the balcony after a shower looking at life on the street below was another highlight!
Great artistic retreat
We loved spending time in this house which is full of great art. It is extremely comfortable with air con and ceiling fans. It is close to the wonderful beach and convenient for town yet in a quiet street.. Tina is a very good host sending lots of information about the house and surrounding areas . We would highly recommend staying in The Artists Treehouse.
Wish it was mine !
On arriving at the spacious and comfortable Treehouse, we feel instantly at home, having stayed there on many occasions. It has such a relaxing feel but at the same time there is so much to look at .... the walls are covered in artworks and thought provoking messages . The open windows and doors let in the breezes and the sounds of the tropical birds while giving us a lush green outlook to the garden, palm trees and the magnificent paperbark .
Absolutely perfect location with an easy walk to the either the beach, shops or marina .
The kitchen is well equipped for preparing your own meals as it’s a pleasant option to just stay in !
Looking forward to our next holiday here !
You'll never want to leave!
This property is just so unique and quirky and beautifully presented. Tina goes above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay. Everything you need is provided for a comfortable stay in this home away from home. Our family of 5 spent 2 amazing weeks here and never wanted to leave. The open plan and tropical breeze meant we never used the air conditioner once and slept comfortably. Great location. You'll love the day bed on the balcony and breakfast at the huge mermaid table listening to the birds. Faultless!
Wonderful holiday home
Tina looked after us very well and responded very quickly to our emails. The house is very bohemian, with a welcoming comfort. Our children felt at home straight away.
