About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms (1 in separate pavilion), 3 Baths (Sleeps 8), massive pool

Blue Pools Beach House - Cairns

Comfortable beach house on the Coral Sea, tucked away in a secluded beachside village only 15 min's from the CBD/downtown. There is a 25 metre heated/cooled pool and a large spa in a private tropical garden setting.

All the comforts of home: well equipped kitchen, dishwasher, ice maker fridge/freezer, wide screen TV, high speed internet connection (bring your own laptop to access), indoor and outdoor dining areas, panoramic views of the Coral Sea from the lounge and dining rooms. Quality linen, towels and toiletries.

There are four bedrooms, and three bathrooms. Including one bedroom with attached large bathroom in a separate pavilion in the garden.

Sea breezes keep the house and pavilions at a comfortable temperature all year round. The property lies between the sea and a park with large tropical trees and masses of birds. The owners stay here regularly and have made this their second home with modern equipment and furnishings. You can unwind gazing out to sea or float around in the pool and spa admiring the tropical garden. The pool can be heated or cooled as required

150m along the beach Ebony & Ivory bar and restaurant is open most evenings and all day on the weekends or it is a short drive or bus trip to Cairns restaurants and nightlife. Basic needs are supplied by the post office and a general store with service station.

Many of the tours to the Great Barrier Reef or tours to the Daintree rainforest, Port Douglas, Cape Tribulation, the Atherton tablelands, pick up from Machans Beach.

Machans Beach is a small community set between sugar cane fields, the Barron River, the bush and the sea. It retains the look and atmosphere of the old Cairns. Yet Machans is the closest of all Cairns beaches to the city for shopping and nightlife.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the Blue Pools Beach House. It was ideal for our multiple family members who met up in Cairns for a family wedding. Having the pool and jacuzzi was a big plus. It was great to come back after a busy day and cool off in the pool. The outside dining area was great and we enjoyed using the bbq. James did a wonderful job of meeting us at the house and showing us how everything worked. Their was a lovely basket of fresh fruit and vegetables, a bottle of wine and milk etc. to greet us. The house was in a very convenient location. We enjoyed a meal at the restaurant down the street. However, you need to be patient as the service was quite slow. We also had some good Thai takeout from the little place around the corner. I would love to stay there again and highly recommend it.
