The location of the apartments was so central to the beach, shops & restaurants. Everything was in walking distance. We stayed in apartment 11 which had a huge balcony and everything we needed. Very spacious & well appointed. Can't wait to come back to the Balboa again. Highly recommended.

Balboa was recommended by friends who stay regularly. We stayed with 3 other couples from overseas for three nights and were mightily impressed. Lynette was an outstanding host and incredibly helpful. Cannot recommend highly enough

Lynette and Andrew are great hosts, unobtrusive, but very helpful if called upon, and they made our stay most enjoyable. The apartment itself is huge (number 14) and all the basics and quite a few extras are there. Undercover, shaded parking was very useful in the heat and humidity of the summer. The location is perfect, yards from 4 mile... More

Between us we stayed in 3 of the units (10,11 and 14) and had a great time.We have travelled extensively but we were very pleasantly surprised at the level of service we received - there wasn't anything that was too...

You can't ask for anything more with these apartments - absolutely fantastic. Stayed for 3 nights over Christmas in a 2 bedroomed ground floor unit which had an amazing view of the beach(100m away) and palm trees .Lyn and Andrew were very friendly and helpful. I honestly cannot recommend these apartments anymore. A definite must - fully equipped with all... More

We were lucky enough to spend 7 nights at the Balboa apartments in a 3 bedroom apartment overlooking the beach. We listened to the waves from our balcony and bedroom and watched the sunrise over palm trees each morning.. it really was bliss! The apartment was spacious, clean and in perfect working order. Located at the quiet end of Macrossan... More

We can't praise Balboa Apartments highly enough, spacious and modern, fully equipped a real home from home. Lynette and Andrew are so helpful and really welcoming. Our trip to the Great Barrier Reef came on a very rough day but thanks to our hosts we were supplied with travel pills so we enjoyed the day very much. Port Douglas is... More

Balboa Apartments in Port Douglas are in a fantastic location, with views of the beach from many of the apartments. They are very spacious and filled with light and the bathrooms are well appointed. The kitchens have everything one needs for preparing a meal and the managers are extremely helpful and keep the whole place in immaculate condition. All the... More
