About the property

5 Bedroom , 4 Bathroom Luxury House 200 Metres from Beach

Bahama style on your door step literally as you walk through your entry way and into the high pitched foyer, an amazing tropical holiday experience awaits!

Take a short 1 min stroll to the golden sands of 4 mile beach and plunge into the warm waters of the coral sea or swim in the crystal clear water of the large pool.. Soak up the suns rays on a sun lounge by the pool or read a book under the shade of the raised Cocktail Pavilion. Enjoy the colors and splendor of tropical plants around the pool. Relax on a daybed at your own private piece of rain forest from where tropical parrots and birds will greet you each morning.

When the children (and you) need a break from the pool, there is the large screen TV with foxtel, DVD's or a maybe a board game. Hook into the Wifi provided and go online or quietly watch a TV provided in each bedroom.

In the evening, decide whether to take a short walk to one of the many nearby restaurants, hop on the shuttle into town or maybe have a BBQ at the poolside Alfresco dining area. A large built in BBQ, Outdoor Bar Fridge and Outdoor dining setting will ensure this dinner choice becomes a holiday favorite.

At night, sleep with the shutters open safe behind fly screening and listen to the sounds of the tropical north or simply close up the room and turn on the air conditioning.

For your morning coffee (if you dont want to use the house coffee machine!) walk to Choo Choos cafe (Escape St) or OTZ (4mile roundabout). Choo Choos also have the cane train that goes to the Marina (little kids will love this!!)

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a week at the Bahama House. Plenty of room for 2 families of 4, beautifully done and the pool a big hit with the kids! Not too far out of Port Douglas, getting the shuttle back a couple of nights was good fun.

Owner's Response: Thanks Ann Marie! Glad you all loved the house and the kids loved the pool!. The Bahama House certainly is spacious and ideal for families. The shuttle bus is so handy for nights out :) Being close to the beach is great for a morning walk also - one of our favourite things to do!

Owner's Response: Hi Mohd, Thank you so much for your review, it was lovely to speak to you on the phone and hear your glowing praise for The Bahama House, "the best holiday house" you have ever stayed in if I remember correctly. I understand you had difficulty contacting our housekeeper and she also had difficulty contacting you also at times. Port Douglas mobile reception can be a bit dodgey in certain areas, but I am glad that she responded to all of your questions.Our House Manual has land line contact phone numbers also, we apologise for any stress this may have caused you. Hopefully you can return and enjoy our house and Port Douglas again :)

Fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

There were 10 of us, 5 adults and 5 children

The house was luxurious yet very practical. Just a short walk to the beach. We really didn't want to leave. My last review gave an incorrect rating.

Stayed at The Bahama house for 8 nights. We were family of 10. 6 Adults and 4 kids. This house was perfect for our stay. Plenty of room for some quite get away when needed. Everything was just as you see in pictures. The pool was the favourite with both adults and kids, being used everyday, and lovely gazebo to sit under and relax. Excellent size bedrooms, with 4 bathrooms didn't take us long to get ready when we need to get out early for tours and sightseeing. Kitchen was great and had everything you would need. We especially loved BBQ area and used this area the most. We walk along 4 mile beach most morning, which was breathtaking. Sharon and Grant have put a lot of effort into making this house beautiful. Loved the information on how house was established and were all the furniture came from. All very sad to leave. Thank you Sharon and Grant for sharing your wonderful paradise with us.

Perfect Extended Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had family from two states plus overseas stay for five nights. Fabulous, large home away from home! The house design was perfect for a large group of adults, plenty of privacy and communal areas! We lived in the outdoor area, was great! Location is good, just across the road from the beach and easy shuttle pick up from door!

About Grant & Sharon Burnell

Hi! We are Grant & Sharon and we LOVE Port Douglas, it is such an amazing destination for locals and international visitors. We have built /restored / renovated 6 gorgeous villas & homes that we own & manage. We are so grateful that we get to share this tropical paradise with you all :) We are yet to have a guest that hasn't fallen inlove with Port Douglas....

Why Grant & Sharon Burnell chose Port Douglas

The Bahama House is a WOW house, from the moment you walk through the magnificent front door. It is very spacious and has 3 master bedrooms so no one has to fight over the 'best bedroom'!! The other 2 bedrooms share a bathroom.

The kitchen is devine.

The backyard is a real treat, infact when you are in the pool and look up at the backyard with the towering trees it is one of the best views.

It is 177 steps to the beach and has everything you need, beach bags, pool toys, games, baby equip and loads of luxurious touches.

At 5pm you will proabably find yourself in the Cocktail Pavilion reflecting about your days adventures!

What makes this house unique

We built this house 2 years ago and tried to capture tropical design and living. The decor is reminisent of British Colonial influences. Almost all of the furniture was made on Islands around Indonesia. One of the pencil post beds was found in an old shed on a tiny island from the Portugese era of Indonesia - the remarkable thing about this bed is that it was EXACTLY the bed I wanted for this house and was going to order one, instead we got the real thing!

Even the front door is full of history. The timber is from an old rainforest bridge that was removed the year we built our house - I love the history of the timber and everytime I walk through the door I can't help but wonder what this timber has weathered over the years.

We hope our guests feel spoilt and indulged and leave with wonderful holiday memories that will last a lifetime.
