Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Kewarra Beach - Mornington

Large house with pool and bbq in tropical garden near the pristine beach.

Owner managed with attention to cleanliness. Helping you choose tours to suit your needs and the fine details that make all the difference to your relaxed stay is our pleasure.

Please read a couple of our guest reviews from last year.

For a virtual tour of the house please go to YouTube and type in morningtonatkewarra.

'WOW! 'Where else but Queensland'...now I know where they get the saying from :) We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mornington. The house was so comfortable, everything needed for a great stay was provided, from washing detergent to pool toys for the kids! Tim and Wendy thought of everything! The pool and backyard space was amazing. It was quite a challenge to get the kids out of the pool to do other activities during our stay in Cairns. Kewarra Beach is such a lovely, clean and quiet suburb. Highly recommended to families who are after peace and quiet. Thank you Tim for the delicious Mangoes. You made us feel very welcomed. The only bad thing I can say about our stay...was going home :(''

Ravi, January 2014

We had an absolutely fantastic holiday at Mornington, everything was perfect (including the weather). The location is perfect, close to Cairns and no to far from Port Douglas and the Atherton Table lands. We will remember this holiday for the rest of our lives. Thanks Wendy & Tim for being such great hosts.'

Wim & Nellie and familie

'Excellent house comfortable, spacious & well situated The boys loved the pool & spent so much time in it they never even thought about TV. Great to sit out, with a BBQ and glass of wine and relax after a day sightseeing. Would definitely recommend to friends and love to go there again. Thanks Tim & Wendy, lovely hosts, lovely house.'

Vanda, December 2012

Mornington is well positioned in a quiet residential location only a 5 minute walk to the palm fringed beach of Kewarra. Only 20 minutes north of Cairns airport and 30 minutes south of Port Douglas, 'Mornington' is an excellent base from which to explore the region.

On your doorstep you have the Great Barrier Reef, the Rainforest, Atherton Tablelands, Kuranda, world renowned golf courses and top class restaurants. The tourist haven of Palm Cove is a stroll along the beach or a seven minute drive.

Mornington is a fully air conditioned 4 bedroom 2 bathroom home with 2 separate entertaining areas catering for adults and children of all ages. There is a large salt water pool to cool off in and two undercover outdoor patios with a BBQ area.

About Tim and Wendy Prettejohn

Wendy grew up in Sydney and moved to Cairns in 1999. Tim was born in Kenya then farmed in SA for 20 years before moving to Cairns in 1987. Wendy is a jewellery designer and published writer and Tim does all the outside work and gives excellent advise on tours to suit your needs. We both enjoy meeting people from all over the world and making them feel at home in 'Mornington'.

Tim and Wendy Prettejohn purchased this house in 2010

Why Tim and Wendy Prettejohn chose Kewarra Beach

Because it is perfect! When this property was for sale we knew it would be the ideal holiday vacation house because of its size and layout, not to mention the fantastic pool and spacious back garden. We live next door and make sure that everything is in perfect working order and absolutely pristine condition.

.

What makes this house unique

We are on hand should there be queries about what tours to take or any advise about the area and trips to the Reef and Rainforest and often receive a discount for our clients.

The house is fully air conditioned and we have just installed large stainless steel ceiling fans in every room.

There are pleasant views from each room and the entrance and front garden ensure privacy from the quiet street.

There is a double lock up garage - but mostly part of it is used for a second undercover seating and bbq area.

It's lovely to get up in the morning and sit at the undercover outdoor table for breakfast whilst gazing into the blue depths of the pool and out at the lush green surrounds of the garden.

FIVE STARS



We had a fabulous time at Kewarra Beach and Mornington was a lovely house to stay in. Its location was perfect for us and the house itself was beautifully kept and had a very high level of cleanliness through out. The big bonus was that the owners live next door and were great as tour guides and ever ready with helpfull tips. Highly recommended.

The house is ideally situated close to most amenities. A short walk to the beach. Tours of the Great Barrier Reef can be readily organised to suit all ages and stages of scuba diving or snorkelling and swimming.

The Skyrail is just a 5 minute drive away and will take you over and through tropical rainforest and alongside waterfalls to the tableland town of Kuranda, where there are many sights to see.

The Tablelands also offers such things and chocolate making and coffee growing, tea plantations, wine making and many historically interesting stops.

A stroll along Kewarra Beach to the north will bring you to Palm Cove where there are dozens of restaurants and coffee bars plus designer shopping. Palm Cove is like a little 'Rivierra'.

There are a couple of white water rafting tours to choose from. Cable water skiing is 5mins drive away. Australian bush and adventure tours are plentiful and the trip through Port Dougles (40min drive away) to the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation for rainforest surfing, is a must. Interested in bungy jumping - it's also just a 5 min drive away.

This freestanding house is ideally situated to take advantage of all the attractions and tours on offer. It's spacious and comfortable enough to just stay home and enjoy the large pool and relax for the day.
