Oak Beach Cottage is ABSOLUTE BEACHFRONT with a private tropical POOL and only 39 paces to the Coral Sea!
Enjoy luxury and stylish accommodation that you can book for a minimum of five nights.
OBC as it is affectionately known is a 12 minute drive to the heart of Port Douglas, 20 minutes drive from Palm Cove and only 40 minutes from Cairns International Airport. Oak Beach is Port Douglas’s most exclusive beach; it is unspoiled and is surrounded by lush tropical rain forest and palm trees. The beach is un-crowded and is perfect for sun bathing, picnicking, snorkeling or just lazing about. You may be lucky and see dolphins swimming in the Coral Sea. The sunrise in the morning is just stunning as is the full moon rising from the ocean!
OBC is Port Douglas luxury holiday house accommodation in every sense of the word and accommodates up to six people. The beach house has been created by one of Australia’s leading interior designers and the house presents with a unique combination of ‘contemporary colonialism’. Every effort has been made to ensure that you will have the holiday of a lifetime in this tropical paradise and you will want to come back again and again! You can laze about in the private and tropical salt water pool, enjoy a BBQ, sleep in a hammock or enjoy cocktails, as the sun sets behind the palm trees. Equally you may want to enjoy many of the cafes, restaurants and tourist destinations in the area, including the world famous Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rain forest.
The house is open to the sea breezes during the day and should you require it, air conditioning and fans will cool you at night. The house is stylish, private and totally relaxing……..perfect for a honeymoon or just 'getting away from it all and re charging the batteries'. You can enjoy one of three plush and contemporary bedrooms. The master bedroom has its own king size bed and large en-suite with private courtyard and overlooks the private pool. The second bedroom also overlooks the pool and can be either configured with two large single beds or a king sized bed. The bungalow, separate to the main house, has a queen sized bed and has spectacular views of swaying palm trees and the Coral Sea. The sound of the ocean will gently rock you to sleep each night!

We have been holidaying at Oak Beach for years as it is our favorite beach in Australia. The beach is very private and exclusive, with only about 15 houses on the beach side. When Oak Beach Cottage came up for sale, we jumped at as we knew it was a once in a life time opportunity to own this piece of paradise. Oak Beach itself is about a kilometer long and is fringed with palm trees. All our Guests love staying at OBC because of its close proximity to Port Douglas. You are close enough to enjoy the restaurants, bars, shopping etc, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and solitude. Of course the Great Barrier Reef is close at hand and so is the world famous Daintree Rainforest. OBC is in absolute paradise!
As Oak Beach Cottage is only 39 paces away from the Coral Sea, you could not be closer to the ocean if you tried! The living and dining areas face the Coral Sea and capture the sea breezes. The French doors on the ‘beach side’ open out to a wide ‘Queensland style’ undercover verandah, where you can dine al fresco……or you can relax in the various lounging areas…. or walk straight on to the golden sands on the unspoiled beach. Perhaps if ‘pool side’ is more your thing……you can ‘escape’ from the ocean and enjoy a cool refreshing swim in the totally private salt water swimming pool. Or you may want to spread out on the day bed and read a book or open a bottle of wine and enjoy a BBQ….or catch up on a tan. Children also enjoying toasting marshmallows around the fire pit in the evening.... and parents enjoying a glass of wine whilst looking up at the stars! Whatever you decide to do, you will be mesmerized by the natural beauty of Oak Beach and its surrounds. It won’t take long for you to be totally relaxed and wishing life was always this good!
Oak Beach Cottage is simply stunning. A breathtaking paradise. The home is impeccably appointed and exquistiely decorated. Seriously, you could not ask for more! From the refreshing waters of the private courtyard pool surrounded by lush, jungle foliage, to the warm waters of the ocean..laze languidly in a hammock under the swaying coconut palms, as you are bathed in balmy breezes..strolls along the quiet beach. It's like something from the most tantalising holiday brochure come to life. One week at OBC was the perfect recharge. Superbly located between Cairns and Port Douglas. A swim in the Mossman Gorge is a must, as is a walk in the Daintree. We did a trip to Mareeba and a swim at Emerlad Falls. Stunning! Paradise! Highly recommended. Will be back time and again.
This was a special treat for my birthday- a get away to a tropical beach in Northern Queensland. It was awesome. The house was beautifully appointed, opening onto the beach with a hammock. The house was comfortable with all mod cons and a beautiful pool to dip into. I stayed with friends hidden away for 2 days and totally relaxed.
The down side? It is secluded and is 10 minutes away from Port Douglas- so if you do want to go exploring, you do need a car. If however you just want to go out for dinner, there are good local taxis and details are included in the helpful information pack in the house.
For me though, the idyllic down time was reinvigorating. An ideal place if you want to chill watching the sun go down with the sound of the sea in you ears, a cocktail in one hand and a book in another.
This was our second time visiting OBC, and the memories and dreams of the first visit were exceeded. Truly a fantastic spot and a beautifully appointed house. Luxury with out pretension. We had the best intentions of eating out in Port Douglas, but couldn't seem to drag ourselves away, other than to stock up on supplies. Stunning!

We were recommended to stay at Oak Beach Cottage and it did not disappoint.
A stunning location so close to the ocean you could hear the waves at night.
The house itself was appointed with everything you could want or need, the beds luxurious, the fittings and decor were second to none. Better than any 5 star hotel.
Whether relaxing by the pool or swimming in the ocean this was a place where you did not want to leave. It is quiet private and with Port Douglas only a short drive away you could enjoy the town but we did not want to leave just happy to relax and enjoy this beautiful stunning home.
From the moment we arrived at OBC we were totally immersed in this tropical paradise. The proximity to the sea was only footsteps away and the hammock located looking out to the water was the perfect place to read and relax. Our youngest child spent his days looking for shells, playing on the sand in front of the house and swimming in the pool. The older children swam in the warm sea, ran the beach, read, collected fire wood for our nightly camp fires, and the parents just relaxed. OBC had everything we needed and more. We could have spent every day just lazing around at OBC but being only 10mins from Port Douglas we explored Mossman Gorge, visited the reef, had day trips to Cairns, a day at the Crocodile Farm and a beautiful drive to Cape Tribulation through the Daintree Forest. Hopefully we will be back next year around September/October as it was not stinger season and the weather was perfect.
My family and I had the most glorious days at OBC , we arrived from London and everything was organised perfectly, directions, spotlessly clean , comfortable and very beautiful, with the sound of the sea and wind in the palms, it was wonderful.
