Condo/Apartment
One of five apartments in the our Retro Port Douglas collection, Retro Palms is styled around the Florence Broadhurst 'Palms' wallpaper. The furnishings have been carefully selected - some we have lovingly restored. It has a separate bedroom. The opening between the bedroom and living area -- which can be closed with sliding shutters -- gives the apartment a lovely airy feel. The balcony has a hanging chair ideal for a relaxing afternoon reading a book. Retro Palms has the latest technology including unlimited high-speed WiFi, Smart TV with Netflix and Foxtel (cable TV) accounts, and Bose MP3 player. The kitchen features induction cooking, oven, Smeg appliances and a De Longhi espresso machine. For those with infants, we can supply a cot, cot linen, a stroller, a high chair, plastic bath, ...One of five apartments in the our Retro Port Douglas collection, Retro Palms is styled around the Florence Broadhurst 'Palms' wallpaper.
