You'll never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just so unique and quirky and beautifully presented. Tina goes above and beyond to ensure you enjoy your stay. Everything you need is provided for a comfortable stay in this home away from home. Our family of 5 spent 2 amazing weeks here and never wanted to leave. The open plan and tropical breeze meant we never used the air conditioner once and slept comfortably. Great location. You'll love the day bed on the balcony and breakfast at the huge mermaid table listening to the birds. Faultless!

We had a terrific week at the treehouse. The house is both stunning/ecletic and also very comfortable - with plenty of different spaces to chill out. And very kid friendly with a huge toy box & a bookcase full of kids books & Dvds - our 2 toddlers loved it. A few blocks walk from the beach in one direction & the main cafe strip in the other. Loved it & we would very happily visit again.

We had an absolutely brilliant time. The treehouse was just amazing - I just loved it in everyway. The second day at the Treehouse we went down to the little wharf at the end of the street and happened upon a fishing boat just back from sea after 2 weeks fishing - we brought a red emperor and some cod fresh off the boat!! Delicious:) We swam in the sea every day after a big walk along the beach up the hill and down into town for our morning coffee. Loved the book lounge in town. Read our books lying on the comfy couches upstairs in the treehouse - a small little yellow bird flew in a couple of times and hung from the light fitting in the lounge. The decor was so charming -and I loved the windows and sliding doors. The mermaid table was very cool. So many lovely touches I can't list them all!! My husband was on a bit of quest to find the best lamingtons - so we sampled quite a few on our explorations into the areas around Port Douglas.. The whole time we were on holiday I just thought we were staying in the best place in Port Douglas - it was lovely coming back to "our place" to cook up our meals and try out the new and exotic fruits we couldn't resist buying.

  • 5 of 5

This unique artistic home, offered us a great experience which was beyond hosting us in Port Douglas. The house has everything one needs for a great vacation (baskets for the beach, big towels and beach toys and a cute pool), has all needed to have a comfy homy experience (nice soaps, soft towels, clean everything) and fun options to have the meals - bar sitting, big table, chairs on the balcony with BBQ and more... Above all it has a great creative artistic style with a humorist touch that adds a special edge to the whole experience. So glad we found this location it is the icing on the cake of any stay at Port Douglas:).
