Cairns estate description

A beautifully designed 9 bedroom house located on a 4 acre property surrounded by native vegetation, wildlife, and plantations. Spot wallabies, kangaroos, kookaburras, possums, and if you're lucky, an echidna from the comfort of the varendah.

On the property itself, there is a salt water swimming pool and tennis court available for use. A telescope gives you a unique view of the night sky from one of the highest and unobstructed views in Mareeba. The sprawling lawns and beautiful rose bushes provide a serene environment for your holiday. The sparkling Emerald Creek that runs through the property provides a beautiful place for a splash and a barbecue. There is also a pool table, aircon in all the rooms for the summer heat, a beautiful courtyard to keep an eye on the children, cable TV and internet.

Property is also perfect for any event you wish to have, from magical weddings to parties. Our planner can also be on hand to help you make your event a success. Packages available for events + accommodation
