  Perched between the Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef, our Balinese-inspired timber house sits on 3 acres.

There are no neighbours to be seen and the only noise is generally from the birds.

The two main bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms and king sized beds.

The 10m x 10m combined kitchen, living and dining area takes up most of the middle storey. There is a 50-inch flat screen TV in the living area and the bedrooms also have their own TV. There is a deep cool plunge pool.

We are looking to exchange cars, and will include our Subaru Forester 2007, automatic.

Sorry but our home is not suitable for children or pets or smokers.

We live fifteen minutes’ drive from Port Douglas, a charming resort village and the departure point for visits to the Great Barrier Reef. Four Mile Beach is excellent for long walks, swimming, sunbaking and even kite surfing.

We are seven minutes from the small sugar-cane town of Mossman and the Mossman Gorge with its rainforest walks.

Port Douglas has many good restaurants and cafes, mostly reasonably priced, and a colourful Sunday cotters’ market. Mossman has three restaurants and a Saturday market where locals bring their tropical fruit, flowers and vegetables to sell.

Our home is the ideal base for day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, the Rainforest and the Tablelands, where coffee is grown. Cairns, one hour’s drive away along the magnificent coastal road, has shopping malls, theatres, cinemas and an international airport.

We would like to stay between London, Southampton and Brighton. We have a family wedding near Dorking in June 2011.

This is one of the best times to visit the tropics because of the low humidity.

We are John and Pam - John is a former television journalist and Pam worked in the film industry. Now we are semi-retired, John is involved with the Port Douglas theatre and Pam has written three local history books. We have family in Wiltshire and Surrey and frequently visit the UK.
