Fully self contained and comfortable 2 story terrace style home, sitting happily within a tropical garden oasis, tucked behind the Coral Sea.
A little slice of heaven...
Spacious and airy 2 story terrace style tropical home, tucked behind one of Australia's most recognised 'best' beaches ... Four Mile Beach.
Lovingly renovated and designed into a comfortable home to relax and enjoy, whilst exploring the wonders of this very special ancient part of the world.
The aspect and design of the house provides excellent cross ventilation. The second floor living space and stairwell glass has been recently tinted to reduce heat and stop UV rays entering. Also extra fans have been installed for those super hot days. Air con is rarely needed and only situated in the main bedroom downstairs.
The open living/kitchen/dining space is elevated on the second floor, with raked lofty ceilings... leading to an outdoor balcony room (with 2nd loo), overlooking established colourful gardens, habitat trees, the rainforest pool with waterfall, and the open sky canopy inbetween ... wonderful views of both sunrises and sunsets.
If you enjoy birds, lush gardens with coloured frogs, original artworks, tasteful home styling and good books/film, you've come to the right place...If you are not looking for a 'resort' themed holiday, Beachside@PortDouglas offers an attractive and affordable alternative. Hidden from the tourist hub, yet within easy reach.
The kitchen is well equipped with all the basics you will need...including local tea/coffee, olive oil, honey and chilled filtered water. Downstairs, has a zen inspired bathroom, 2 bedrooms, a laundry behind sliding louvres, all leading to an open sheltered courtyard. Walking from the garden courtyard is our lovely private and large salt water lagoon style pool with a natural rock waterfall. UV protected shade sail in the summer months, ensures a lovely refreshing temperature. Excellent for small children as there is a wide pebbled ledge entry into the pool...excellent for little ones to splash in, before entering the deeper waters of the pool. There is a BBQ area next to the pool, sitting amongst the lush tropical landscape.
Everything has been lovingly considered to create a comfortable and relaxing home away from home experience...

I adore the arts, renovating properties, gardening, travel, photography, animals and our landscape/environment/wildlife.
My background is varied and mostly stems from a love of creating 'spaces'. I was a stained glass artist for many years, whilst working side by side in the field of colour schemes, home furnishings and design. Cultural exchange and travel have always been important and necessary for me.
I have modelled my airbnb accommodation, on what I personally would enjoy. Comfort, artistic stimulation, a beautiful garden to enjoy and away from the maddening crowd at an reasonable price. It makes me happy that all guests so far have loved their time at Beachside, and have enjoyed the 'home away from home' ambience it resonates.
I'm loving semi retirement !!
Things I can't live without .... mmmmmm ... my dog, good friends, great coffee, and laughter.
