A modern take on a classic Australian beach house !
Set on over 800 square meters, The Whitehouse is a cool, spacious, private holiday home - perfect for a far north Queensland escape.
This four bedroom house is surrounded by a secure, high fenced landscaped garden with traditional far north Queensland flora including gingers, yuccas, coconut palms and pineapples. Sunbake in the front yard, cool off, by taking a dip in the saltwater pool out the back and then dry off on one of the sun lounges.
Inside, The Whitehouse is decorated in pale colours, true to its name, with coastal motifs. It is fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans throughout; the open central area off the entry provides for communal gatherings, however, the sleeping quarters are quite private.
The large, well appointed Miele kitchen makes cooking a pleasure, even on holidays or let the four-burner BBQ do all the hard work. Glasses, crockery, cutlery, cookware, bakeware and picnic-ware are in abundance at The Whitehouse.

There is also a good selection of board-games, novels, playing cards and cookbooks. Dance to your own tunes by hooking up to the i-pod docking station or listen to the local stations.
