Bedrock has a gourmet Miele appointed kitchen with gas cooktop that makes preparing meals a breeze. You can choose from dining indoors around the 8 seater table or dine on the back deck which also seats 8 around a Teak outdoor setting and really enjoy being in the tropics. The kitchen island will allow all to gather around to enjoy a meal or make plans for your stay. The property is on a 1000sq metre fully fenced block. The lush gardens and large grass lawns allow for plenty of outdoor family fun when you want to enjoy the amazing Cairns climate, and whilst enjoying the gardens you can jump in and out of the pool or relax on the pool deck. For those days when it does rain, the generous rear balcony provides an entertaining or recreational area protected from the wind and rain for all the family to enjoy. For more competitive families, the table tennis table in the garage is perfect for family championships, or board games such as Monopoly, Pictionary and Jenga will give plenty of exciting moments. For designated lazy days staying at Bedrock, there are 2 TV's, with Apple TV & Netflix available on the upstairs TV, so adults and children can both watch their favourite programmes. You are only a 3 minute drive to the heart of Palm Cove and its restaurants and bars, or it is a very leisurely 20 minute walk. Perfect for an evening meal or nightcap with a peaceful stroll home. BEDROCK is perfect for a family holiday, but can be configured for a more intimate getaway. Come up and experience this beautiful home and location for yourself; you won't be disappointed!

Absolute Paradise!
This house is incredible! The ocean views are next level and you feel like you are in your own sanctuary. The house has absolutely everything you could ever need - amazing kitchen, pool, beautiful bedrooms, games, space, entertaining areas. It is one of the best houses we have ever stayed in and we didn’t want to leave. The kids were in heaven too! When they had exhausted themselves swimming in the pool, playing in the backyard or versing each other in ping pong, they enjoyed some quiet time in the epic downstairs room which was fully equipped with tv, fridge, bathroom, aircon, beds, couch! Honestly everything about this house is next level amazing! The hosts are also incredibly accomodating and a pleasure to deal with. We will absolutely be back and cannot wait to book our next stay here. Oh and i forgot to mention its only a very short drive to beautiful palm cove when you want to venture out to enjoy the beach and restaurants. This is a must stay house - 10/10!

A perfect home in a perfect location
Recently stayed here for 6 nights with a group of 8. The house is just perfect. So well designed and everything you could want or need is provided. Traveling with a group of such mixed ages from 4 months to 63 years old, it suited all of us. We will be back!

Amazing 10 nights!
While visiting Australia for the first time (to see my son) we had the privilege of staying at bedrock for ten nights. We had a wonderful time, the house was immaculate and everything one could want and more for a perfect holiday.

Perfect for our family getaway, even better than expected!
We travelled with 5 adults and 2 small children (3yrs and 9months) and found Bedrock perfect for our needs. The safety gate on the stairs made it so much easier to relax, and the whole house is child friendly. We had a great time exploring Palm Cove (only a short drive, or a 30 min stroll with the pram) and absolutely loved being able to look out over the breathtaking view from the comfort of the lounge. It was also a convenient location for exploring Port Douglas, Mareeba, and Cairns. We will definitely be back if we get the chance! My only small criticism would be that there are insufficient towel rails in the bathrooms and an option for a mid-week service (clean towels, floors and bathrooms cleaned) would add that extra bit of luxury. The mattresses are probably due for a change too, but were comfortable enough for a short stay.

Hi Melissa, We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay and it sounds like you managed to explore a lot of what Cairns and the surroundings have to offer. Thanks for your feedback regarding the towel rails and beds. We are in the process of getting some new beds and replacing the sofa with a new model from King Furniture, so hopefully if you come back you'll get to experience the new fitout. We do offer complimentary mid stay cleans, including changing the linen and towels for stays of 10 nights or longer, but with your feedback maybe we'll add it as an optional extra for shorter stays, for those that would like the service. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review and let us know ways to improve. Kind regards, Alex and Alexis

Beautiful house and location, with all the comforts of home
We stayed bedrock for 4 nights, as part of a two week trip to northern QLD. When initially looking for accommodation around Cairns, we noticed there were a large amount of hotels, motels and private rentals available, but we wanted something a little different. What initially attracted us to Bedrock was the location at the top of the hill, with a small private pool, all with a view over the ocean and nearby island. Although the house had 4 bedrooms, with accommodation for up to 10 people, we were a couple and enjoyed the space and facilities that this beautiful house had to offer. The house was located in a small residential estate, surrounded by other amazing houses, with rainforest at the back door. We had email communication with the owner Alex, who provided all the necessary information regarding checkin (since he was overseas at the time). He also emailed to let us know we could check in early, and to check how we doing after the checkin. Bedrock provided the following facilities which we found very useful: Automatic double garage (where we parked our hire car) Laundry facilities, including washing powder 3 bathrooms Individual Air conditioners and fans in each room Dishwasher Pool towels Wi-fi Clifton Beach was a few minutes drive away, and had a small shopping shopping centre with Coles and liquorland. Nearby Palm Cove beach was lined with restaurants and cafes, which we visited daily. Cairns city was only 35 mins away, where more shopping, restaurants a and nightlife (including cinemas) were available. Bedrock was a great location to explore the local area. We visited: Port Douglas Skyrail Blazing saddles (horse riding and quad biking) Overall, Bedrock was a very affordable and beautiful place to stay, with all the comforts of home, and I would highly recommend. Thanks Alex and Alexis.

Hi Aaron, Thanks so much for taking the time to write such an in-depth review. We really appreciate it. We definitely think Bedrock is unique, so it's great to hear that that's one of the reasons you came to stay. It sounds like you really explored the local area and got to see lots of the nearby attractions. There's so much to see and do and it's hard to choose what to get started with. It was a pleasure having you come and stay and we hope you come and visit Palm Cove and Bedrock again. All the best, Alex and Alexis

A week of rest and relaxation
We spent six nights at Bedrock as an extended family of three generations and loved every moment. The pool and yard were perfect for our primary school aged children to use and the house is comfortably furnished and appointed throughout. There is everything you could wish for and more here. The owners have put a lot of thought into the needs of travellers and details such as the child safety gate, ping-pong table and variety of toys and games were a welcome bonus. We hope to return to Bedrock again next year.

We Loved Bedrock!!!
When I first saw this house on the Internet, I decided this was the place for my family to stay. The pictures made the house and grounds looks incredible. We were not disappointed. It is actually even better than the pictures and discription can show. My daughters couldn't find the words to express how much they loved this house. The place is spacious with a great deck, yard and a small private swimming pool. The view from the main living space is amazing. There is easily room for 9 or 10 people to sleep so our group of 6 was very comfortable. We had all the amenities we required, the beds were comfortable and we felt right at home the minute we walked in. We are all adults and new we would be out of the house a lot to go to the reef, the Daintree and other points of interest. Sitting on the beach wasn't our end game. The beach is a decent 20 to 25 minute walk (5 minut drive) from Bedrock. A well stocked grocery store is also only 5 minutes away. Palm Cove has a lot of restaurants to chose from. We never had an issue with any of them. The only thing that was unexpected was the geckos. We saw more than one running around the house. My daughters were little freaked out. However, these little guys are normal, part of the house, harmless and are there for a purpose. And they are really small. Our family would highly recommend this house to any group or family looking for a first class house to stay in in the Cairns area. Alex and Alexis are great to deal with and we couldn't be happier with our decision to stay at Bedrock.

We're delighted you all enjoyed your stay and liked the layout and space of Bedrock. It sounds like you made the most of your time in beautiful Palm Cove and Cairns. Yes we do have some other permanent residents so we should probably put that on our house description. The geckos are very useful though and an integral part of living in Far North Queensland. We hope you'll visit Palm Cove and Bedrock again and wish you all the best. Kind regards, Alex and Alexis

Amazing Holiday home at exotic location
Travelled with group of friends over Easter holidays. The place is amazing with excellent ameneties and fabulous views at any time of the day. Alex was a good host and even though he was away, he made sure that we settled in fine. Perfect base for your holidays around Cairns, Port Douglas, Daintree, Tablelands etc. Would suit a large family or group of friends.

About the neighborhood
BEDROCK is only minutes from Palm Cove, which has some world renowned restaurants and bars. 'Nu Nu's' is frequently acclaimed by the media for their food, wine list and service. Chill cafe, opposite NuNu's at the Southern end of the esplanade is great for breakfast or a coffee throughout the day and is one of our favourites. Other restaurants and bars definitely worthy of a visit include Vivo's and The Rising Sun. Most restaurants serve food all day including breakfast. For a more informal venue try the Palm Cove Surf Club. 10 minutes south of the house is Cairns Sky Rail where you can take a gondola above the rainforest and then explore the markets and cultural attractions of Kuranda village in the hills. At the same location is Tjabuka
Getting around
It's a 20 minute casual walk down to the Palm Cove Esplanade which is very pleasant, except maybe in the middle of summer or if you are carrying lots of things to go to the beach.
Access
Car advised
How to get there
Bedrock is a 25 minute drive North of Cairns airport and about 45 mins South of Port Douglas. Airport transfers are readily available but cost about the same as a taxi. If you plan on exploring the area we would recommend hiring a car as the public transport is limited to buses and is not very frequent in our area.
