Stylishly appointed, this holiday home offers the chance to enjoy the best aspects of the tropical North Queensland lifestyle.
From the front entrance, the timber deck, BBQ and upstairs living area overlook the sunken pebble salt water pool. Easy living is assured with flowing, open multiple areas featuring polished timber flooring upstairs and tiled floors throughout the lower areas.
A requirement for those tropical days, the house is air conditioned throughout. Down just 4 stairs is the 2nd living area plus sofa bed. This leads to the quiet and private backyard nestled around the entertainment pavilion, ideally furnished for lounging conversation and cool drinks.
Perfect for the entire family, there are 5 bedrooms: 2 x King bedrooms, 1 x Queen bedroom and 1 x twin room, with a further family room adjacent with 1 x Queen bed and 2 singles. The master bedroom has a 26" LCD TV.

As well as the ensuite in the master bedroom, there is the main bathroom upstairs with a separate toilet plus a 3rd bathroom with toilet in the family room downstairs. Outdoors there is a fantastic hot water double shower for rinsing off after you return from the beach or step out of the pool. A modern fully equipped kitchen has everything you need to prepare gourmet meals - granite bench top, dishwasher, microwave, two fridge/freezers, sleek stainless steel ILVE 5 burner gas stove plus walk in pantry.
Both the separate lounge areas have 42" plasma televisions, one with surround sound and DVD player, the other with a Wii console plus a second DVD player.
An electronically controlled sliding gate entrance makes a safe enclosed area for children to play with a minimum three car carport.
Only 500m from the beach, it means a short stroll to fine restaurants, the village shops, parks and transport. Go boutique shopping along the cobblestoned Esplanade lined with century old "paperbark" melaleucas and palm trees.
