Palm Cove House Rental Photos and Description
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
BEDROCK is a 4 bedroom 3 bathroom architecturally designed home. The downstairs room is styled as a self-contained apartment that includes a bedroom, bathroom, kitchenette, TV with DVD player and living area.
The home was designed to maximise the tropical breezes and views to the reef and islands. It emphasises the tropical indoor/outdoor Cairns lifestyle and provides a very relaxing experience.
Elevated into the coastal ranges, the breezes keep the house cool, but split system air-conditioning in all bedrooms and living areas can make it a little cooler for those who like it so.
The freshwater pool with views to Double Island and the Scout Hut is a fantastic alternative to the beaches or for that quick afternoon dip. A poolside deck adds the option of entertaining by the pool as well.
Glass bi-fold doors run the length of the front of the house and open up to blur the division of the outdoors and inside and the front balcony can make you a part of the beautiful scenery.
The views are available from all bedrooms, including the downstairs apartment, but when the bi-fold doors are closed, roman blinds can be lowered to ensure privacy.
The Miele appointed kitchen with gas cooktop makes preparing food a breeze for those who still enjoy cooking on holidays. You can prepare and enjoy meals whilst looking out at the coastline and islands.
For those days when it does rain, the remote controlled gate at the street and remote garage entry ensure that you don't have to leave the car until you are inside the house. Once inside, the generous rear balcony provides an entertaining or recreational area protected from the wind and rain.
For designated lazy days staying at Bedrock, there are TV's with DVD players both upstairs and downstairs so adults and children can both watch their favourite programmes. The sound system upstairs also has iPod/MP3 player connectivity.
You are only a 3 minute drive to the heart of Palm Cove and its restaurants and bars, or it is a very leisurely 15 minute walk. Perfect for an evening meal or nightcap with a peaceful stroll home.
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!

About The Owner
We are a family who loved living at this house but unfortunately have had to move.
The Owner purchased this house in 2009
Why The Owner chose Palm Cove
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. Palm Cove and Port Douglas are both launching point to go out on the Great Barrier Reef; an absolute must do for anyone visiting the region.
What makes this house unique
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 freshwater 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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Our family of 6 adults and 3 children stayed at Bedrock during the last week of January, 2013. With so many good features to mention, it's hard to single one out - but the views, the room to move with 3 couples sharing the house (plus 7, 5 and 2 year olds) worked really well. The pool was well used and the outdoor area was perfect for meals outdoors. Plenty of cupboard space, linen and crockery etc. Beautifully appointed and a pleasure to stay in such a clean and well set up home in a trul magnificent setting. Thank you owners... we'll be back! PS: Even in the wet, with tropical monsoons for the first few days, the house provided all we needed, including table tennis and games for the kids. superb!
