A Touch of Bali - Resort Style Luxury 4 Br w/Pool

Bedrooms 4
Property type house


About the property

A Touch of Bali is a Rainforest Retreat with luxury inclusions. The alfresco and pool entertaining area is set under a romantic rainforest canopy within stunning tropical gardens. Whilst only being 10 mins to the centre of Cairns and 10 mins to the Beaches this gorgeous open plan home is situated in the hills of freshwater, surrounded by rainforest, overlooking cane fields and the beaches. If you’re after a relaxing place just to stop or a place to base all your activities from this is it. A Touch of Bali is only 15mins drive from town, 25mins drive to Palm Cove and 45mins to Port Douglas.

The house offers sleeping for up to 8 with 1 king bed in the lovely master with a stunning new outdoor/indoor Bali ensuite bathroom. A queen in the first room and 2 singles in the other, with a 4th queen bedroom downstairs. All bedrooms have air conditioning. The house also offers plenty of room for all. There is a TV room at the front of the house enclosed by shutters to let the breeze through which follows through to a sitting room and dining room. Once you have made it to the open plan kitchen you have reached the best part of the house. The kitchen opens up onto the outdoor lounge under the trees and overlooks the resort style pool area. The stunning views over the Pacific Ocean and all the way to Green Island are a treat. Rarely is it that you don't have a breeze in this part of the property.

Tropical living is all based outside so out from the kitchen there is the lounge, dining and pool area. There is also an outdoor kitchen with built in BBQ. A Touch of Bali has all the features of tropical resort style living and is designed for this lifestyle making it the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your holiday. The open kitchen has all you need to cook with Miele appliances and a pod coffee machine for the perfect cup of coffee lying back on the daybed.

If your using this house as a base to see the area it is right in the middle of everything. Whether you have a hire car or are using public transport it is easy to get to all the attractions. At the bottom of the hill there is a bus stop where public transport goes in and out of town every hour. Also 5 mins drive from the house is one of the most popular train stations for the historic Kuranda Train. Kuranda is well worth a visit and you can either drive, take the train or do the Skyrail. The Skyrail is a gondola trip over the rainforest that takes you from the bottom of the range to the top where you can check out all the great things to see in Kuranda. Of course there are all of the tours going out to reef and up to the Daintree which are also on offer in town. You can easily book these tours or go for a drive yourself up to the Daintree and see all the attraction on the way up. It is a lovely drive and you can always stop in at Port Douglas on your way up or back.

However if you are using the house simply as an escape from the busy life, A Touch of Bali is perfect. There are plenty of areas to relax and simply read a book. The pool is a beautiful spot to lie about and do nothing.The Bali Hut with our extra large carved daybed is ideal for a book, a sleep or maybe a glass of wine. This area is covered with trees it stays cool and provides a shaded oasis.

Decor and furnishings supplied by Blue Moon Imports in Cairns. If you want your home to feel like your on holidays visit the website and they will create your own private getaway.

very unique

  • 5 of 5

super comfortable beds, beautifully furnished the best I have seen and great location with great views. The only negative would be the lack of fly screens, we had no problems as it was a bit cooler and dry do not much mozzies around, but this would be the only reason not to return during hotter month...but the comfort and everything else made up for that.

Owner's Response: Hi Anita Thanks for your kind words. I'm a bit biased but I have to agree about the 'Bali' ensuite. Hopefully you can come back again. Cheers Jenny and Ron

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jenny and Ron for having us stay at your wonderful property. We were there for a week and I could not rate it more highly. The location, the layout and all the amenities were absolutely spot on. Loved the outdoor shower and the pool was a welcome addition on a hot afternoon. Fantastic. We were 2 couples and the house was just the right size. The views in the morning while doing a sot of work took the edge off. Loved all the unique furnishings as well. A must and we will be back.

Fantastic holiday luxury house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful house set in lovely gardens with our elderly parents, son and friend. It was a great house for the wide variety of ages. We also had guests over and the kitchen and outside cooking and dining areas made it so easy.

The view is spectacular, and there is a great path to go for a morning run.

The house has different sitting and dining areas to use that added fun options.

The cooking facilities were great, steam oven, blender, coffee maker all the things usually missing in holiday accommodation. The pantry was so well stocked. Laundry, bathroom and bedrooms all well equipped. We spent a lot of time at this house just relaxing. It is a spacious house and loved staying there so much we wouldn't stay anywhere else in Cairns. We have no hesitation in recommending this wonderful holiday home.

Owners were friendly, helpful and easy to contact which adds to the whole experience.

Exellent property but...

  • 1 of 5

House is fantastic, spacious, clean, great outdoor area, pool is great, location is good however we stayed there for three nights and had the owner Ron visit 4 times 'to check the pool' by jumping the back fence!! No privacy at all and lack of respect!!

Owner's Response: Hi Sam Sorry for the delayed response however your comments are appreciated. We do endeavour to always respect our guest’s privacy and apologize in this instance. In future we will make sure to always either organise a mutually agreeable time or call before attending the property for servicing the pool and grounds. This should avoid future embarrassment. Kind Regards Jenny and Ron

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful house in July 2014 for 8 nights and absolutely loved it. We are a family of four - including 2 boys aged 17 and 15. The boys loved the pool and the fact they could both have a queen sized bed in separate rooms! We loved the king bed, ensuite and morning coffee sun deck. I was a bit worried that the house was out of our price bracket but it was worth every cent! The kitchen was amazing and the outdoor BBQ and fridge meant we could eat at home in style every night which helped with our budget. The ice maker in the fridge door and the built in coffee machine were the icing on the cake of an extremely we'll appointed and well organised kitchen. Every utensil and cooking dish we could possibly need was right on hand.

The beds were extremely comfortable, the rooms were roomy and the furnishings immaculate but at the same time the house made you feel comfortable and relaxed.

The house is 1 km from freshwater train station which means travel on the Kuranda sky rail is easy and you are only 10-15 mins from cairns CBD which is plenty close enough. It is also only 5-10 mins from the airport and although that sounds close the planes do not disturb you. We hired a car for the week (the house has garaged parking) so travel was easy but there was also a bus stop at the end of street if you need.

Jenny was terrific in helping me book and Ron was very thorough (without being intrusive) when he met us and showed us around the property on the first night.

An ideal property for a family of 4-6. I cannot recommend this house highly enough. If we are ever looking to stay in cairns again this is the property for us!!
