About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Most guests describe their joy that the view is more amazing in real life than in our photos. It immediately puts guests into a relaxing frame of mind to make the most of their time in paradise.

Bedrock is ideal for a large family or a group of friends travelling together or gathering for a special occasion.

Elevated into the coastal ranges, the home was designed to maximise the tropical breezes and views to the reef and islands (even from the downstairs apartment).

The sublime indoor/outdoor living spaces allow everyone to make the most of relaxing quietly or socialising constantly. Bedrock has a gourmet Miele appointed kitchen with gas cooktop that makes preparing meals a breeze. You can choose from dining indoors around the 8 seater table or dine on the back deck which also seats 8 around a Teak outdoor setting and really enjoy being in the tropics. The kitchen island will allow all to gather around to enjoy a meal or make plans for your stay.

The property is on a 1000sq metre fully fenced block. The lush gardens and large grass lawns allow for plenty of outdoor family fun when you want to enjoy the amazing Cairns climate, and whilst enjoying the gardens you can jump in and out of the pool or relax on the pool deck.

For those days when it does rain, the generous rear balcony provides an entertaining or recreational area protected from the wind and rain for all the family to enjoy. For more competitive families, the table tennis table in the garage is perfect for family championships, or board games such as Monopoly, Pictionary and Jenga will give plenty of exciting moments.

For designated lazy days staying at Bedrock, there are 2 TV's, with Apple TV & Netflix available on the upstairs TV, so adults and children can both watch their favourite programmes.

You are only a 3 minute drive to the heart of Palm Cove and its restaurants and bars, or it is a very leisurely 20 minute walk. Perfect for an evening meal or nightcap with a peaceful stroll home.

Nearby Attractions

BEDROCK is only minutes from Palm Cove, which has some world renowned restaurants and bars. 'Nu Nu's' is frequently acclaimed by the media for their food, wine list and service.

Chill cafe, opposite NuNu's at the Southern end of the esplanade is great for breakfast or a coffee throughout the day and is one of our favourites.

Other restaurants and bars definitely worthy of a visit include Vivo's and The Rising Sun. Most restaurants serve food all day including breakfast. For a more informal venue try the Palm Cove Surf Club.

10 minutes south of the house is Cairns Sky Rail where you can take a gondola above the rainforest and then explore the markets and cultural attractions of Kuranda village in the hills. At the same location is Tjabukai aboriginal park, displaying aboriginal culture and history.

Next door is the Cairns Cable Ski Park for the more adventurous providing wake boarding, water skiing and knee boarding. Lessons are available for those wanting to learn.

30 minutes drive to the North of Palm Cove is Port Douglas, with its shopping, restaurants and local cultural activities. Just North of Port is Mossman Gorge which is amazing for a swim. Further North is the heritage listed Daintree Rainforest, with Cape Tribulation.

BEDROCK is perfect for a family holiday, but can be configured for a more intimate getaway. Come up and experience this beautiful home and location for yourself; you won't be disappointed!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family who loved living at this house but unfortunately have had to move for work. We love visiting Cairns and enjoying the relaxed lifestyle that it offers.

Why the Owner Chose Palm Cove QLD, Australia:
We built this house to live in and so it is finished to the highest standard with all the personal touches that make staying here feel like a home away from home. Palm Cove is a beautiful area with the lush rainforest at the back door and Palm Cove and other beaches only minutes away by car. Palm Cove Esplanade has a cosmopolitan feel with bars, many types of restaurants, cafes and all the facilities you could want at the beach. The people are friendly and really foster a fabulous ambiance for a holiday. Only 25 mins to Cairns city and the airport. Port Douglas is an easy day trip to explore all the restaurants and shops it has to offer. Cairns and Port Douglas are both launching point to go out on the Great Barrier Reef; an absolute must do for anyone visiting the region.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you walk upstairs and see the view of the coast, ocean, and islands it takes your breath away. We have frequently just looked out and enjoyed the view for whole mornings and afternoons. Each day when you wake and see the view again, it instantly relaxes you and you never get tired of looking at the mesmerising vista. You can also enjoy this view whilst relaxing in the pool and from every bedroom in the house. The rear deck provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. Holiday letting allows us to enjoy all these things that we miss when we're away.
