Cliffside Port Douglas

Having undergone a multi-million-dollar makeover, this exquisite private home occupies prime real estate along the headland of Port Douglas. Nestled amongst lush tropical greenery and overlooking the sparkling waters of the Coral Sea, this home is a picture-perfect gateway resting directly between the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.

This luxurious property offers a blend of modern elegance and tropical serenity, starting with its superbly manicured gardens and open-sided lobby that seamlessly integrate with the equatorial ambiance. The presence of rich foliage and a tranquil water feature enhances the experience, leading guests to an in-ground heated pool that boasts spectacular views of the Coral Sea.

The interior is light and airy with contemporary furnishings, featuring a primary suite with a walk-in wardrobe and uninterrupted water views from the bed. It also includes three king bedrooms, a children-friendly games room with spacious bunks and a TV, and a retreat room with a fold-down king bed, each room adorned with marble ensuites and copper accents. Upstairs includes multiple living spaces, a dining area, and a kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances. Downstairs, a full alfresco kitchen with barbecue and lounging area opens directly onto the pool and fully-landscaped gardens.

Alongside its accompanying gym and large garage, this private home can be fully customised with daily servicing, a private chef, and pre-provisioning, ensuring you want for nothing throughout your stay. A walking trail to the iconic Four Mile Beach sits at the base of the property, and its prime location ensures the main township’s premium restaurants and facilities are all within walking distance.

Port Douglas

A picturesque coastal town in North Queensland, Port Douglas serves as a unique crossroads between two of the world’s most extraordinary natural wonders. Ideally located, it offers unparalleled access to the vibrant underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, the largest coral reef system on the planet, renowned for its incredible marine biodiversity. Just a stone’s throw away lies the ancient Daintree Rainforest, a UNESCO World Heritage site, known for its remarkable array of flora and fauna, some of which are found nowhere else on Earth. Port Douglas combines the tranquillity of its stunning coastline with the lushness of the rainforest, making it an ideal base for explorers and nature enthusiasts. The town itself, with its laid-back charm and sophisticated dining and shopping scenes, perfectly complements the natural beauty surrounding it. This unique blend of natural wonders and relaxed, sophisticated living makes Port Douglas a captivating destination for travellers seeking both adventure and serenity.

Port Douglas is perfectly positioned for its proximity to three areas of natural significance: Daintree Rainforest and the adjoining Cape Tribulation region, which is home to some of the oldest surviving rainforests on earth, and the Great Barrier Reef.   

Here’s just a taste of what you can experience in this region:

  • Set sail on a private yacht and snorkel or dive the Great Barrier Reef with a renowned marine biologist.
  • Jet off on a private game boat and fish in beautiful, adventure-filled fishing locations. The surrounding waters boast some of the most exciting fishing in the world (Black Marlin fishing season is from September to December). Each year, fish weighing up to a massive 1,000 pounds can be caught here.
  • Take a custom tour offering authentic experiences in the national parks and World Heritage-listed areas of Tropical North Queensland and, in particular, the pristine environment of the Daintree Rainforest. Depending on your interests, your experienced private guide will tailor a journey that may incorporate Aboriginal experiences, boat cruises, walking trails, and spontaneous stops.
  • Visit the largest collection of edible rainforest plants in the world and meet the Dr. Doolittle of the rainforest. Experience the world’s greatest collections of tropical ethno botanical plants (plants humans can use), featuring more than 3,000 species, including fruit, spices and nuts.
  • Take off on a custom helicopter safari to visit the ancient Quinkan rock art site, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the top 10 rock art sites in the world. Here you will be joined by a local Aboriginal family to view the dramatic body of prehistoric rock paintings and discover first-hand insights into the culture and history of the Kuka Yalanji people.
  • Helicopter tour to visit a tropical waterfall in the rainforest and have brunch on your own private tropical sand cay.
  • Visit the Atherton Tablelands, with its breathtaking waterfalls, scenic vistas at every turn, impressive ancient carter lakes, lush rainforest and rugged outback.
  • Private dining banquet in the rainforest.
  • Let us help you hire a prestige vehicle so that you can explore this beautiful tropical region at your own pace.
