Villa Hemingway won multiple Regional and State Awards including House of the Year and Outdoor Living and Landscaping and is located just several minutes walk from the town and beach.
The owners initial brief (back in 1999) was to create a traditional tropical home that would serve the requirements of themselves and six children. This meant a multi functional residence with accommodation presented over three levels and incorporating many different entertaining areas. In fact, this dwelling has 7 bedrooms/bathrooms and offers over 800 square metres of luxurious living (situated on a 1216 square metre plot). As if that wasn’t enough it also has a separate 2-bedroom self contained apartment. Outside the property has 6 spacious balconies, a resort style pool, Cocktail bar, BBQ gazebo and flood lit tennis court.
Perfectly positioned and north facing the home ranges over six levels, from the lower outdoor recreation area incorporating a flood lit tennis court to a fantastic BBQ Gazebo and entertaining deck, then up to the resort style swimming pool and onto the three levels of luxurious living.
All floors feature breathtaking views showing panoramic vistas of the historical sugar wharf, coastal beaches and nearby marina and being the perfect position to view stunning sunsets with yachts coming and going.
Lush tropical gardens surround the generous sized estate with privacy assured within the fully gated and walled bounderies.
There is also a separate self contained two bedroom apartment adjacent to the outdoor entertaining areas.
The perfect location - with the exceptional World Heritage areas of the Daintree and the Great Barrier Reef on your doorstep and Cairn’s international airport only an hour away via one of Australia’s most scenic coastal routes.

Where the ancient Daintree Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef
"This is the most accessible paradise on Earth. Port Douglas village is both gateway and destination. It's a heady blend of stylish cafes and funky bars alongside a century old Queensland pub" (source: The Tourism Tropical North Queensland website)
Port Douglas is well established as a tourist destination, with an abundance of visitor facilities and tourism related infrastructure, with its proximity to the region's two primary natural attractions, being the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest - both World Heritage listed areas being a great asset.
In recent years, Port Douglas has become a popular destination for visitors to spend southern hemisphere winter months or holiday throughout the year. Holidaymakers relish Port Douglas's natural beauty and excellent year-round climate. Visitors are kept busy during the day with a wide variety of sightseeing, sporting and adventure activities and in the balmy evening the laid back tropical oasis offers a vibrant atmosphere of tropic style sophistication.
