I agree with the other comments, the pictures on here are completely misleading to what you walk into! The apartment was old and really needed to TLC, however we only really used it for sleeping. When we arrived, there was a lot of confusion as to where we were staying and what our apartment name was, as on our hotel... More

We lucked into a stay at the Terrace through Expedia --- got nine days across from 4 Mile Beach for about $1,000. We were NOT on the beach facing side but in the neat little apartments out back. Here we had two bedrooms, washer dryer, full kitchen, tennis court, swimming pool -- the works in airy, air conditioned comfort. The... More

We had a last minute long weekend trip to Port Douglas and as pretty regular visitors knew we wanted to be close to the beach. The Terraces position is second to none but the unit really needs some maintenance. The front sliding door lock is broken, light bulbs need replacing, the blinds are broken, there is a layer of dust... More

You cannot improve on the location, but these very shabby apartments need money spent NOW! We bargained the rate down to $272/night from a stratospheric $340. That buys two bedrooms upstairs with a shared bathroom, a huge north-facing balcony which extends to front and offers super views of beach and sunrise, kitchen-dining-lounge downstairs. Everything is a good twenty or more... More

Be aware there is a company called 'Latitude 16' that own various apartment blocks in and around Port Douglas. One of them called 'Beaches' apartment which are NOT the same as Beachfront Terrace Apartments, which is what we were originally put in! Even this review has mixed pictures of the WRONG apartment block so be aware! We had to pay... More

Stayed here with our 3 kids for a week and wished it was longer. We absolutely loved it. The unit was clean, lots of room- we could watch the kids in the pool from our back deck and on the beach from the front. Staff were helpful, friendly but really unobtrusive. Gardens were beautiful and being able to play a... More

We had a one bedroom on the ground level across the street from the beach. We were a bit apprehensive having our patio door open to the garden and out to the street. It was unfounded! Port Douglas has a lovely safe feeling and we had direct access to the beach in a minute. We even rented paddleboards and stored... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and the best I can say is that they are average! The next night we checked into a hotel down the road that was 100% better and less that half the price. even though we did ask to stay another night here they said that they had already discounted the price and could not...

After this school holidays the property will be undertaking a refurbishment. As walk-ins you would have had a chance to view the room before deciding to stay, which then should have... More
