Port Douglas unplugged: Sunrise Retreat, an escape to a simpler life
Simplicity sets the tempo for Sunrise Retreat, an in the know' destination 15 minutes from the Port Douglas township and 30 minutes to the Cairns International Airport. Driving up the private driveway to the Sunrise Retreat homestead and its guest cottages begins an escape to a simpler way of living. It is a 10.5-acre remote paradise surrounded by mature Blackwattle and Eucalyptus trees, tucked neatly into the Great Dividing Range landscape.
The homestead, guest cottages and garages encompass an expansive 616 sqm of indoor and outdoor undercover areas with panoramas across farmlands over the Coral Sea to Low Isles and Snapper Island. An outdoor terrace including a two-metre deep wet edge swimming pool connects the two living pavilions and is the heart of activities.
A self-contained guest cottage is popular with Airbnb short-term guests, with the second guest accommodation adjacent to the homestead. Sunrise Retreat is equally popular with the locals - kangaroos, a menagerie of birdlife and butterflies, and Greentree frogs.
As a private residence and city escape, a wellness retreat, or an adventure sports hub - it's primed for the next owner to craft Sunrise Retreat into their vision of paradise. It's the kind of place that invites fresh-air activities - kids outside playing away from online distractions and TV; with friends and family conversing, cooking and enjoying life. If Sunrise Retreat piques your interest, call Barbara to start the conversation.
By the way, gifts with purchase are sunrises and sunsets, clean air and spring water flowing nearby, an abundant supply of soft breezes and an unpolluted ceiling of stars.
