Australian Traveller Magazine’s 100 Great Australian Holiday Homes
When you roll into Port Douglas for your next tropical holiday, be sure to look up – waaaaay up. Touted as the highest house in the region, Horizon Vista (on Ocean View Rd, no less) could not be more appropriately named. There it sits in all its rainforest-shrouded splendour, bristling with balconies, just begging you to explore its three vast bedrooms, ensuites, kitchen, spa bath and walk-in robes, before diving full-length into its sparkling saltwater swimming pool. And don’t worry if you forget your bathers or swimsuit; only the lowest of low-flying aircraft could ever come close to disturbing your peace and privacy.
