About the property

Shankara Beach-House is a gorgeous retreat set in beautiful Port Douglas, it's the perfect place to bring your family and friends. It is only a short walk to picturesque 4 Mile Beach and playgrounds.

The living areas all open out and overlook the pool and tropical back garden. Shankara is totally private, the perfect place to soak up the sun and simply relax and unwind.

The bedrooms are spacious and light filled. The master bedroom has a queen bed, and private ensuite & walk in-robe. The louvered shutter windows look through to the tropical garden. It also has direct access to the pool through the glass sliding doors. The second bedroom with a queen, looks out over the side garden and is lovely and cool. The third & fourth bedrooms have two single beds (which can be converted into Kings if requested). All rooms have built-in wardrobes besides the master suite.

The bathroom is modern and stylish. The freestanding bath, separate shower and double vanity make this area extremely family friendly.

The kitchen is the hub of the house. It has a breakfast bar, and overlooks the pool and outdoor dining area. The kitchen also boasts a large walk-in pantry.

The dining and lounge room flow through onto the pool and outdoor entertaining area. There is a large 3 seater and a 2 seater leather lounge suite as well as 2 additional chairs to relax in after a long day of exploring the Far North. The lounge area enjoys the morning sun and is lovely and cool in the evening.

With Wifi, Austar and a Nespresso machine available for your convenience.

Poolside there is a BBQ and alfresco dining. There are also two lounge chairs beside the pool, the perfect place to catch some sun.

Shankara enjoys the most convenient location in Port Douglas. The Four Mile Shops are only minutes away and have all the convenience you would need on holidays. 'Otz' Cafe is a popular breakfast and lunch spot and a great place for a coffee.

Hire some pushbikes' and ride on the beach or bike path to the Port Douglas Village to dine and shop.

Property had all we needed

  • 5 of 5

A great property with everything you need, comfortable beds, plenty of space and a large kitchen. Jeremy met us at the property, ensuring we had all that we needed, also providing local knowledge on restaurants and activities. Jeremy also ensured the pool temperature was to our liking, great customer service.

Great property, very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We found this property to be finished to a high standard with plenty of space and child-friendly for our 7 month old. Nice open plan layout and a reasonably well-equipped kitchen for self catering. Great to have your own pool. Close to the beach and a cafe and a short car trip into the centre of Port Douglas. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
