Luxury timber home in the tropics
Our architect-designed home is on three levels with polished timber floors and a beautiful tropical ambience. There are two large double bedrooms each with its own unique ensuite bathroom. The enormous living and dining room has an open plan kitchen with silky-oak benches. One bedroom is by the pool and the other overlooks the trees and valley. From the west deck, Mt Demi and Mossman Gorge feature in the distance. We are secluded but not remote and only a 7 minute drive to Mossman village. No neighbours to be seen, and rarely heard. But the birds will wake you at dawn, and butterflies are everywhere.
We will include our Subaru Forester in the home exchange.
Mossman is the centre of sugar cane growing and has a wonderful Saturday market where locals sell their vegetables and tropical fruit. Further on is the World-heritage listed Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation.
Port Douglas with its many great restaurants is only a 12 minute drive in the other direction. Tourist boats to the Great Barrier Reef depart from there daily. Visitors can also enjoy a trip to the Tablelands which rise nearby. Tree kangaroos and towering ant hills are unusual features here, and the climate is cooler.
We are exactly one hour's drive north from Cairns International Airport.
