Exclusive Rainforest Pavilion Home 16 mins from Cairns City. Come relax in an ancient forest with a resort feeling. House includes a gourmet kitchen, amazing in ground swimming pool with a unique black pebble finish designed to resemble a natural rainforest swimming hole, parking for more than 4 cars. There are 2 separate buildings for guests to enjoy.
As soon as you arrive you feel like you’re in your own exclusive Rainforest Retreat. You are very close to nature, with common sightings of native wildlife just off the doorstep i.e. Wallabies small Kangaroo, Melomys, Quoll, Musky Rat Kangaroo, Orange- Footed Scrubfowl, Bush Turkey just to name a few.
The Main house is designed from a Traditional Papua New Guinea Long house, containing the main bedroom, king size bed and en-suite and the large loft bedroom with king size bed, kitchen, lounge, dining areas large veranda front and back. Hidden within the foliage of this elevated setting you will find yourself overlooking Redlynch Valley with views of the mountains, freshwater creek and the surrounding valley. This stunning pavilion style property offers a relaxing atmosphere encapsulating the beauty of its natural surroundings. Extensive use of timber, the juxtaposition of height, angles and aspect create a truly harmonious design, focusing on the connection of indoor and outdoor spaces. This design maximises the natural breezes, it can be opened up by the various louvres and bi-fold cedar doors. The 2nd building contains 2 bed rooms with king size beds separated by a large bathroom. All the beds are King-Splits and can be unzipped to make long single beds. Each of these bedrooms look directly onto the pool on one side and out to the rainforest on the other, with double Cedar doors opening out to its own balcony
The Rainforest is right on your doorstep and by opening the Cedar louvres and doors you can let the natural mountain air and breeze flow freely through the house, however all areas can be closed to take advantage of the complete air conditioning throughout both buildings. There are no fly screens on any window or door due to the design of indoor/outdoor living, so you may encounter a Gecko or two - these little lizards inhabit most houses in North QLD, they wont hurt humans but are great little insect eaters, sometimes you may encounter them on the walls.
This is a great location for nature lovers, Birdwatchers, groups that like complete privacy and those that wish to experience a Rainforest environment close to Cairns City centre. It is ideal for weddings, events and parties.
Being only 16 minutes from Cairns City and 2 minutes from Redlynch Shopping Centre and restaurants, means you can have the relaxation of being remote with the convenience of city accommodation.
