Recently stayed at Balboa for the first time this being our 5th visit to Port Douglas. These apartments are at a superior level to all others we have stayed at. They are spacious, tastefully decorated, well equipped, with a very comfy bed and a great location close to everything. The large balcony with its BBQ overlooking the beach is fantastic.... More

We were three couples sharing this apartment (including my parents in their 80s) and found it perfect for our needs. It was close to the beach as well as the retail and restaurant sector. The apartment was spacious and had everything that we needed. Little touches such as a few condiments and spices In the well equipped kitchen were appreciated.... More

Spotless and spacious apartment, air conditioned. Well equipped kitchen with huge counter. Comfortable seating in the lounge area. Fox sports a huge bonus. BBQ on the verandah and just a few minutes walk to the beach or to the main restaurant and shopping precinct. Thanks for a lovely stay, Lynette and Andrew. We would love to come back and will...

We wanted a getaway that accommodated 6 adults, 2 small children and a newborn. From the moment I called Balboa, Lyn was more then helpful. She pointed me in the right direction for the perfect room for us, the kids could ride around on the balcony but not go out of our area, we all had a great time in... More

Large spacious apartment that was close to all the shops and the beach. Clean and well equipped with a fabulous pool for the kids. Very much a home away from home, comfortable furniture, large screen tv, family size fridge, extra large kitchen and terrace area. We had a late flight back and our hosts very generously allowed us to stay... More

Brilliant! If I could think of a better word I would use it. We stayed at Balboa Apartments with a couple of friends and had the most wonderful holiday. The apartment was lovely, one of the cleanest (if not the cleanest) we have ever stayed in on any other holiday. Huge living area, light and airy, lovely kitchen and bathrooms... More

We arrived late at night (10pm) after flying into Cairns from Uluru and hiring a car to drive to Port Douglas. Even though Andrew and Lynette had only arrived back from OS that morning and were shattered when Andrew heard us arrive he came down and welcomed us, showed us the apartment and gave advice about all the local amenities....

We stayed at Balboa Apartments for 4 nights as part of a trip along the Queensland coast. It was by far our favourite, fabulous location and apartment number 11 was perfect for our family spanning three generations. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and our grandson was particularly impressed with the range of toys available to borrow free... More
