Artists Treehouse,the perfect choice for your next port douglas holiday 

We had an absolutely brilliant time. The treehouse was just amazing - I just loved it in every way. The whole time we were on holiday I just thought we were staying in the best place in Port Douglas.

The Port Douglas Artists' Treehouse is a four bedroom, fully air conditioned, artisan townhouse in the heart of Port Douglas, sleeping up to nine people. The townhouse features two living rooms, two bathrooms, and balcony, and fenced decked courtyard area leading to shared pool. Filled with major collections of inter/nationally renowned artists, and eclectic furnishings, the Port Douglas Artist's Treehouse finds the perfect balance between comfort, and cool, artistic contemporary style with an affordable price. The Treehouse suits families and friends looking for something cool, eclectic, functional and comfortable, with the convenience of being in the heart of Port Douglas, so you can walk anywhere. Its child friendly and children love it - being surrounded by artwork and filled with toys and dvd's. The house is fully air conditioned if needed!

COMFORT, SPACE and all you need 

We were absolutely blown away when we arrived at the Artists’ Treehouse. The decor is just so amazing!! It is unlike anything i have ever seen before. Every little detail is thought of from having some essential pantry items, to kids toys. There is so much information on what to do in Port Douglas and surrounds as well. We took our 9 month old baby and it was heaven! Romantic and also family oriented.

On the second floor, wooden flooring leads to an open plan fully equipped kitchen featuring wooden benches. The kitchen has an electric stove and dishwasher, microwave, toaster, juicer, blender and other appliances.

This leads to the dining areas featuring a bespoke dining table with settings for nine people. Expansive sliding doors open up to the balcony, bringing the outside in. Spend your evenings looking over the towering paperbark trees, at times - hundreds of birds fly past! There is a small study area, a living room area with two three seater couches, DVD player, selection of DVD's, and digital television. There is a stereo with iPod/iphone attachment. A large air conditioner is available if needed. The upstairs master bedroom is also air-conditioned if needed. There is a queen size bed. The room features a wall of louvres, to capture the breeze. The upstairs bathroom has a shower and toilet.

Downstairs is another living room that opens up to a front deck and fenced courtyard via french doors. There is a large bookshelf with a range of books/DVD's and games. Another large digital television/DVD player and comfy couch. Having a second living room is a wonderful bonus if there are two families, or children - allowing room to spread out. There are chairs/toys/spades/boards/rugs/towels to take to the beach. The front bedroom can be set up as king or two singles. French doors open up to the balcony and a small sitting area. The third bedroom has a two single built in bunk beds. The fourth bedroom has three singles beds. The back gate leads to the pool. The pool is shared with eight other properties, however, all mostly residential so the pool is rarely used, and it is most likely you will have it to yourself.

With plenty of sunshine, beautiful warm seas, refreshing sea breezes and a warm climate all year round, Port Douglas weather is always wonderful. Our warm winter starts in May and finishes in October offering lots of sunshine, fresh breezes and relatively low humidity. Summer is quieter, extends from November to April. The region is refreshed with sporadic tropical afternoon downpours, abundant tropical fruit, and less people. This is a spectacular time of year to come to Port Douglas. The tropical vegetation is abundant and the forests are filled with clear streams and many waterfalls to cool off in. Ocean water temperatures range from 23 degrees Celsius in July to 29 degrees Celsius in February. Thanks to the beautiful Port Douglas weather you can swim all year round. The 'best' swimming season runs between April and October. Between the months of November and March, Port Douglas is home to the box jellyfish, so special swimming enclosures are erected at Fourmile Beach to protect swimmers.
