Third time we had stayed at Nautilus and as per usual a delight. Clean and spacious facilities. Mick and Sue, the managers, are wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. The barbeque area has been improved. The pool clean and welcoming and beautifully alluring at night with blue lighting. The bike hire rates are very reasonable. We left our belongings from a previous... More

We regret not being able to stay longer in Port Douglas as the apartment was great! Kitchen was modern and had all the equipment needed, and bed was very comfy. Mick was very knowledgeable about the area, very accommodating and welcoming. It was lovely to be away from the roar of Sydney traffic and instead to hear the birds in... More

I visited Port Douglas last October, We stayed here for 4 nights. I just wish it could have been longer. Beautiful apartments, large, clean and had everything you need. The location is great, the beach is a couple of minutes away and is stunning. The local town is a short walk. The service was great, really helpful and friendly. Perfect... More

This is our second stay at the Nautilus Apartments, first stayed here 3 years ago, and comes highly recommended by us. Both times we've had a 1 bed apartment, which is a 2 bed with one of the bedrooms simply locked. The location is ideal, it's a 10 minute walk to Macrossan St in the heart of Port Douglas, just...

Good location with about a 6 block walk to the main shopping street and restaurants. Others are closer but the quiet area around the Nautilus is nice. Owners and their cat Lucy were very helpful in sorting out options for shopping, sites and locations of things. Kitchen well equipped. Internet available at a cost . Bed comfortable. Be aware that...

We stayed for four nights in Nov 2015 inside #207, second floor, a large 2/1 apartment. There were 2 singles in one bedroom and a queen in another, great for families. Very modern: washer & dryer, dishwasher, fully-equipped kitchen, sweet garden-deck, the bedrooms were separated by the living room, outdoor pool. The place was very clean and freshly-maintained. Internet was... More

This was the perfect choice: clean, comfortable, quiet, lots of space, full kitchen for meals, in-apartment laundry, competitively priced, and the most accommodating management ever experienced. Highly recommend & would reserve again if returning. One minor detail found unusual was paper napkins/towels not provided, as well as additional toilet paper unless bought at office - perhaps some tourists abuse these... More

Mick and Sue are incredible hosts. The apartments were exceptionally clean and maintained, very modern and secure. The balcony with furniture was a big plus. The apartment even had a garage. The Nautilus is in great location, convenient to restaurants, grocery store and attractions. Highly recommend and definitely would be first choice again, should we ever have a chance to... More

Our family of six stayed in a three bedroom apartment in September/October 2015. We can't speak highly enough of the apartments and our hosts Mick and Sue. On arrival Mick was friendly and helpful explaining everything. Our apartment was clean and comfortable, and just perfect for ourselves and our four daughters ranging in age from 17 to 7. The younger... More

This was our 2nd stay at Nautilus and 3rd trip to PD. I love the privacy of the apartments and that even in peak school hols season you don't feel like anyone else is there. We stayed on ground floor apartment and love the pool, wildlife, tree frogs and of course, Lucy. I only arrived home yesterday and am planning... More
