“A perfect home in a perfect location”
Reviewed 15 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

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!

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!”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

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”
Reviewed 26 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

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
