Highly recommend this property. Run very efficiently buy a husband and wife team. Spotlessly clean and in a perfect location for the beach and restaurants in the main street. Excellent value for money, ($350 per night for a large two bedroom, two bathroom apartment during school holidays) even had a pretty view with beach glimpses. We booked late, and were... More

Balboa is the perfect spot in Port Douglas - it has huge balconies and is one of the few apartment blocks that has a pool that receives sunshine for most of the day. The apartments are spotless and spacious and the staff very friendly. We have stayed here twice now and have just rebooked for next year. Best apartments in... More

Spacious, airy apartment, that was well appointed and very clean. Hosts very friendly and obliging. Only a small hot water cylinder so had to have short showers was the only down side. Close to beach and shops which suited everyone. Very good value for money for two couples. Would definitely stay there again.

These apartments are truly perfect. We stayed here for 10 days and could have easily stayed more!! Balboa is in a perfect location - right near the beach and the Main Street. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The pool is nice and refreshing as well. We will definitely be back!! :)

3 bedroom apartment was very spacious. Huge living, dining kitchen and great balcony with BBQ. It was the cleanest holiday apartment I have ever stayed in. Spotless. Bed was very comfy too! Close to everything. Perfect for families. The hosts arranged all our day trips, transfers etc, made our holiday stress free. Highly recommended.
