Feel like you literally are living in the canopy of the rainforest! Stunning tropical 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom home for full exclusive rental only. Sleeps 10 comfortably but will accommodate 14 effortlessly. Wonderfully designed by local Cairns architect and owner, this house truly embodies the tropical lifestyle the region is fabled for, and makes magnificent use of both the rainforest setting, seasonal stream, skyline views and natural breezes. The home has been designed on strong environmental principals, using passive cooling measures such as capture of breezes, louvre windows, high raking ceilings, large roof overhangs, ceiling fans and roofing insulation to cool the house. The home is comfortable all year round, and can be surprisingly cool on early summer mornings, catching guests off guard and forcing louvres partially closed!
