Dream home: Currumbin Valley rainforest retreat
Relaxing in a spa on the deck of a rainforest retreat with uninterrupted mountain views is a dream for many.
That dream could become reality for the buyer of this Currumbin Valley estate.
It has exactly just that at the guesthouse and the main residence is even more spectacular.
Aptly named, the Palasari Rainforest Estate has a lush mountain backdrop and tropical rainforest surrounds.
Perched at the highest point of the 10.52 ha property, the main house with an Asian-infused design has four bedrooms, a resort-style pool and was built from reclaimed natural materials.
The four-bedroom guesthouse sits on the lower side of the property.

Another highlight is the private cellar door which features a climate-controlled 1600-bottle cellar, full butler’s kitchen, powder room and a covered outdoor entertainment patio.
A flourishing orchard with citrus, stone fruit, mangoes, avocadoes, apples, paw-paw, guava, banana, berries, macadamias, gapes, figs and vegetables adds to the package.
Kollosche agent Rob Lamb said the property was unique as the owners could earn an income while lapping up the lifestyle.
“(A) standout for this property is the main residence with the Asian-influence design surrounded by tropical rainforest and the impressive mountain backdrop,” Mr Lamb said.
“Another upside is the potential commercial aspect of the property allowing the opportunity to build a business from either home to provide cash flow.”
Owner Doug Clark and his daughter Rachel purchased the property in 2015 as it allowed the extended family to live together but still enjoy their own space.
Mr Clark extended the guesthouse, transforming it from a two-bedroom, one-bathroom design to a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with an office.
Mr Clark’s favourite spot is the spa, while his daughter enjoys entertaining around the pool while soaking in amazing views down the valley.
