19 Murphy Street


4 Bedrooms | 3 Bathrooms | Sleeps up to 8 | From $650 per night

Resting directly above Port Douglas village, 19 Murphy Street will instantly welcome you with its rustic charm and decor. This timber pole home – fitted with warm wooden finishes and surrounded by natural elements – is spread out over three levels and is just a few minutes’ walk to the heart of town, yet still offers the peace and tranquillity of a rainforest retreat.

This unique, custom home features high ceilings and an open-concept design. The large, spacious living area flows into the fully equipped kitchen, featuring stainless steel appliances, wooden cabinets, large breakfast bar, ample cookware, dishwasher and gas cook top plus coffee machine – and opens up to the wraparound balcony.

Outside dining is set for eight guests, with plenty of outdoor furniture sprawled across the extensive decks. Enjoy a sunset barbeque dinner, take a soak in the private lagoon-style pool or simply rest and relax on your private sun lounges.

This beautifully appointed home’s four air-conditioned bedrooms sleep up to eight guests in comfort. Three bedrooms, each with private balcony, are located on the entrance level. The additional fourth bedroom is located on the ground level – a self-contained residence, which also offers a small kitchenette plus second lounge area, as well as full bathroom and laundry facilities, and leads out to the large pool deck.

Private enough for one, two or three couples, and large enough for the biggest family, this treetop home presents everything you need – location, space and privacy, comfortable beds and furnishings – making it one of our top holiday properties for a gathering of friends or family.

Excellent Location suited our large family group with different requirements. Unbeatable proximity to all local attractions. Well provisioned house with awesome outdoor living. Hassle free communication with hosts. A++

Wonderful jungle treehouse vibe - yet still centrally located. Great pool and fantastic to have a few different living spaces as we stayed with extended family. Well equipped kitchen with BBQ, and proximity to the supermarket etc. made catering very easy. Super clean on arrival, host was very communicative, we had an excellent stay!

Wonderful house , secluded in amongst the trees yet walking distance to everything Port Douglas has to offer.

Great location that is hidden away just a block away from the Main Street. This house is fantastic for large groups with ample space over 3 levels.

'This house is absolutely delightful! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. You really do feel like you are staying in a treehouse! The location is top-notch, our stay was during the wet season so we weren’t looking to be on the beach, but it’s a quick walk if you are. It’s right in town but thanks to all the lovely trees feels very secluded. The pool was a highlight and so refreshing in the heat and humidity. We loved the sliding glass walls that allowed us to completely open up the main floor, it felt very resort-ish. The hosts were very accommodating and easy to communicate with. We found pretty much everything we needed to completely enjoy our stay. Highly recommended!'

The images of this property didn’t do it justice. Far North Queensland offers so much and caters for all ages. Our accomodation offered an indoor -outdoor lifestyle that was perfect for us.

'We loved the central location and walking to our family wedding in The Sugar Wharf, or downtown for a coffee! Mostly we enjoyed the resort-like space on the deck with the big bi-folds open and didn’t feel like we needed to go anywhere! Our family loved this house!'



June, 2019

The house was well presented and in an excellent position. We could walk to restaurants, shops, wharf and beach.

What an amazing place! If you’re after a unique and private space that’s perfect for a group and outdoor entertaining, this is the one.

We had a wonderful time as a family staying in the amazing Tree House. The men of the family are all builders and were in awe of the timber. The amenities were great we had everything we needed. It was fantastic and we would love to rent the property again.

We had the best time ever! The house was fabulous, massive, perfect for 10 people and really well set up with lots of crockery and the basic condiments to enable you to cook at home if you wanted. The location was excellent and we loved all the wood, high ceilings and the beautiful large balconies. I would highly recommend the property to others with a large group of people. Thank you for enabling us to have a great holiday. I heard my husband report it as being his Best Birthday Ever!!!!
