Property description

The Villa, Port Douglas is one of only 13 privately owned residences in a gated complex on over 2 1/2 acres of lush tropical gardens and exclusive (to the 13 residences) common facilities including a 20m lap pool, tennis court, BBQ pavilion and a plunge pool. Many of the owners live overseas and interstate so there are times when you have the whole place to yourself.

The Villa is large (over 3,400 sq feet), private, peaceful, secure, luxurious and very well equipped including having its own private courtyard with gas BBQ, outdoor undercover dining and a fabulous 6 person Hotsprings hot tub.

It is close to all local attractions and facilities and just a short walk to Four Mile Beach. You can catch a local bus or taxi, hire a car, ride a bike or use your legs to get around. All the tour operators will pick you up at your door step and drop you back after a hard day's touristing. And there'll be plenty of time for a few 'bubbles' (of the Champagne or aqua variety) in the hot tub before cooking up a storm in the gourmet kitchen or on the BBQ, or heading off to one of our fabulous nearby restaurants (almost 100 of them).

Port Douglas is a year round destination with a fantastic tropical climate, seemingly endless nature-based tourism options and a vibrant, internationally famous 'friendly village' atmosphere. It attracts Presidents, movie stars, the rich and famous and the rest of us of more humble status and means.

And the really great news is, it's all very affordable.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are experienced long term international travelers so we know what's important to us when travelling. We've lived in lots of rental properties developing our computer software company around the world. We're still relatively new (only 4 years so far) to the property rental business (as an owner, that is) but our travelling experience taught us that our properties and service levels need to be of an extremely high standard and that your high expectations must be met and hopefully exceeded when you stay with us. We enjoy fulfilling that challenge with every guest and we look forward to greeting you on your arrival at The Villa, Port Douglas. Christine and Allen

Why the Owner Chose Great Barrier Reef:
Port Douglas is the jewel in the crown of Tropical North Queensland. Being the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest, Atherton Tablelands and many historic outback towns, and having a year round climate that facilitates exploring the great outdoors, there is no better region in Australia (or arguably the world) to see and experience nature at its best. There are an endless number of organised or self drive tours, attractions and scenic and sensory experiences one can have in and around Port Douglas. It takes some people a lifetime to get through it all. But you can also just lie on the beach, dine in a quaint restaurant, go fishing or find a favourite drinking hole (pub) to quench your thirst. The lifestyle can be as frantic or as laid back as you want to make it. It's a hard life (if you don't weaken) but hey, someone's got to do it. So after more than 3 decades of travelling we're now enjoying what we believe is one of the best locations on the planet.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The selection of suitable holiday accommodation is often difficult to do from afar yet so critical to your overall vacation experience. We’d like to help make your choice a little easier by offering the following “Seven Great Reasons” to stay with us. They are:- Great Value Great Location Great Facilities Great Service Great for Couples, Families and Friends Great References Great Peace of Mind These are not just marketing words as our extensive property web site spells out in great detail (click on the link immediately above in the 'Links to more information' section to visit our web site). Our goal is to ensure you not only have a great stay, but when you go home you tell your friends and family where to come and stay when they go travelling. That's your guarantee that we'll do our very best to help make your vacation experience a truly unforgettable one. So after digesting the information here, please spend some time on our web site learning more about our Seven Great Reasons, The Villa and Port Douglas, Australia. You'll be happy you did.
