Private and secluded with private pool

I am planning on staying a couple of days with my girlfriend in Port Douglas and wanted to have a place which is modern, private, secluded and has a private pool such that other neighbours/public cannot see you when you go swimming.

There does not seem to be much choice except for those houses which come with like 4 bedrooms etc and therefore out of my price range of $350 per night max. I came across Omkara which seems to be what I am after. Anyone lived in one of the Kutirs at Omkara? Any one got photos of the interior cos there aint much pictures of the inside of these Kutirs? Are the interior very modern and luxurious? Can other guests and the public see you if you swim in the private pool? Any other comments positive or negative?

Any other recommendations apart from Omkara which would satisfy our requirements?

Thanks for the link. I have actually seen that property before but it kinda looks relatively old and my girlfriend and I are trying to look for a more modern apartment/villa, such as the Trinity on the Esplanade (http://www.trinityesplanade.com/), but unfortunately it only has a shared pool.

Btw if there are any places around cairns (eg port douglas/palm cove) that would suit our requirement then pls let us know!!! Thanks!

Besides private villas, I think you will find it difficult to locate something like that.

My only suggestion is to try Pink Flamingo,they don't have private pools, but they used to ( I say used to, because it's been years since I last saw the villas) have an outdoor bath,which looked great.

They used to cater for the gay market only, but since the present owners bought it, they have opened their doors to everyone and have really put in a lot of time and effort to make it an excellent small private complex.

Good luck.

In that case, are there any private villas you can recommend?

Would be good if it was beachfront but not a prerequisite. Thanks in advance.

Hi again

Have been thinking for you....

Best suggestion that I can make is to perhaps direct you to a website that delas with villas in all price ranges. www.portdouglasgetaways.com.au

they have a couple of villas which may suit your requirements Surya and Injasuti,both located in Port Douglas and very close to the beach.However, they do have an email address for enquiries,so I would suggest that you send them a quick email with requirements and I'm certain they will be able to help you.

Just an update. I had a sneak preview of the new Sea Temple in Port Douglas, some look quite private with their own private pool area.Greenery still to be planted though, but may be worth an inquiry. Rates should be ok as they're looking to get up and going.
