About Lara Naigus
Good day! It's a great pleasure to introduce my property Shanee Prana A Tropical Paradise . I fell in love with the place where it is in North Queensland , the serenity , tranquility and elegance. I know you will also fall in love with it as many guests already have.. Since I have renovated it , so it's better inside than it was . Being a tour guide I have been privileged to be to many places in Australia and overseas. I know from experience what people like and how to make their holiday stay very happy, satisfied and memorable in the best possible way. I am a very positive person , care about people and their needs . Nothing is a problem, would love to help in any way possible. My interests are practicing yoga( the property is suitable for boutique retreats ), hoping to develop this part of staying at the property in near future. The aim is to provide all needed for the great stay at Shanee. Love meeting people, finding out what makes them happy and deliver to the best ability. I come from Eastern Europe, lived in Israel, Germany , and proudly call myself Australian most of my life !!! Looking forward to hear from you soon! Namaste Lara
Lara Naigus purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2014
Why Lara Naigus chose Kewarra Beach
While coming a few times to Cairns with my work and later with my family, it was clear that this is the place worth spending time more often away from wonderful but very hectic Sydney. The search began to find the gem , that I can call my own, luckily we found it. The position is in very desirable area of North Queensland in Kewarra beach, which is very close to Cairns and all the needs can be satisfied from there being it just relaxing at the pool, beach is only 4km from the property, Port Douglas only 40km , very posh Palm Cove and Trinity beach not to mention all that NQ is offering being the gateway to Great Barrier Reef, Tropical Daintree Forests and all the activities with this. Having experienced the need to be able to cook while on holidays as restaurants are not always providing all the answers , you will find a fantastic kitchen with all you need to do all your own master chef creations, BBQ , ice making fridge as well. To work all of this off , you have your own full size tennis court ! or just stay in the hammock all day and watch the nature!
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
The original dwelling was built around 20 years ago with amazing Australian silky oak embossing all the French doors, huge hall way between the main family room and the rest of the property. Being surrounded by beautiful , elegant design with wraparound veranda's , lounges to rest, spa bath to indulge in , or patio to have dinner or lunch with fresh breeze kissing you, makes this place absolutely wonderful to experience with family reunions, small functions or even boutique weddings.

at Shanee Prana you live in the middle of a tropical garden in an extremely well equipped house
the tropical, very open architecture gave us a lot of space and privacy for us parents and our two children but could easily be home for another family in the 2nd wing. you have the choice between the pool in front or the tennis court in the back of the house. everything incl garden and tennis court is very well maintained(!) - we stayed here finishing our holidays but will come back next time for a werk and explore the area from here, beaches are 5min drive, cairns 15min, tableland or port douglas/mossman 1 hour. lara is a very friendly host doing all she can with her staff to make things possible.
Dear Christoph and family!
Great many thanks for your kind review , it was a pleasure to host you!
Very happy that you have enjoyed your time at Shanee Prana A tropical paradise
Will be looking forward welcoming you again in near future!
Lara and the Team!
The house is big enough to accomodate a larger group. We were a group of 10 and our stay was very relaxing. There's plenty of room for the kids to play and the outdoor dining area is perfect.
Fantastic kids-friendly tropical home!
The house is fantastic, very comfortable and safe for 3 couples and 5 kids. The bedrooms have modern comfortable beds and bathrooms are also very good.
The garden is amazing, with lots of space to play, a nice pool and a tennis court. The big barbecue also made our evenings very delicious!
The location is very beautiful, quite and peaceful, however the beach is reachable only by car.
We had a great reception upon our arrival, with a person waiting for us at the house to explain us everything and to give us some tips on shopping and sightseeing around.
The pictures of the house available in the internet are very truthful to the reality!
We would go back there anytime!
Dear Leticia I am very glad that you really had a wonderful time @Shanee! Would be very happy to welcome you and your family in the furure! Lara
home away from home loved it!!!!
shanee prana is a beautiful house, beautiful setting, lots of thoughtful details like shampoo etc, lots of towels, plenty of great stuff in the kitchen to cook great meals not just basic. fantastically clean and well maintained. very spacious with many different areas to relax and still have your stuff around you without it being cluttered. we all loved our stay and were very sad to leave would definately go back!!
great holiday property
Our extended family with ages ranging from 88 to 3 months were well accommodated in this beautiful home. We were appreciative of the all the facilities which allowed us to celebrate together but also find quiet places to re-group. Our introduction on the property use and facilities was well supported by the housekeeper. We would return without hesitation.
A hidden gem!
My family have just come back from an incredible 8 days staying at Shanee. Anyone who books this property will definitely not be disappointed and it certainly ticks all the boxes to ensure a successful family holiday. We loved lazying around the pool, playing tennis,reading a book in the hammock whilst admiring the tropical gardens, enjoying meals out on the beautiful deck, and visiting the Barrier reef and other tourist attractions this part of the world has to offer.The house itself is exquisite and much bigger than i had imagined. My children are still talking about this holiday! Thank you Lara for not only being extremely helpful with sharing your knowledge of the area but for also allowing us to share your wonderful piece of paradise!
