Perfect location. Lovely vista and the staff were very helpful in providing and arranging our daily activities. In the middle of all the action, we did not have to go far to get to anywhere. Cant wait to go back.

Tired rooms they may be, (but bless them the new owners have "scheduled minor improvements"). What a privilege to be sent to sleep each night by the beautiful walkway lighting outside our window, then woken each day by the early morning light streaming through the blinds, listening to the joyous tones of 7am lawnmowing, 8am vacuuming, and sharing the toilet...

Hi, We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Unfortunately our minor improvements have have not fixed all things yet, as they do take a while. Things like locks not working are easy to get fixed, however we do need to know about them to get them repaired. A quick stop by the office... More

We booked a 2 bedroomed apartment for 5 nights for 3 adults. Firstly the apartments are modern and clean , in a great location in port Douglas. Car parking is secure in the underground private car park. The owners were friendly and helpful, gave us information about the area and any tours available. Although our apartment was located on the... More

Hi, Thank you for your lovely review of Saltwater apartments. We appreciate your feedback. There are a few apartments with a door/wall as you suggest between the bedroom and the en-suite. However, not all the apartments are configured in this way. All apartments do have at least 2 bathrooms so there is some ability to get away in private when... More

We stayed for five nights this July and everything was exactly as advertised. Beth and Wayne arranged our transfers and nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was just lovely, and comfortable. You can hire pool towels very cheaply for beach/pool. Wifi is paid but very cheap. Supermarket across the road, and all the many restaurants/bars/shops just a stroll away.... More

These apartments are in a really great part of town, right in the heart of all the cafes and restaurants, and with Coles just across the road. Although there are shops and restaurants right below the apartments we were not at all disturbed by noise. The beach and Marina are both just a short walk away. There is plenty of... More

Excellent location in the heart of the action. Close to everything you want to do. Walking distance to restaurants; marina and beach. All the comforts of home -- kitchen, living/dining room, lanai, in-unit laundry. After two weeks of hustling through Australia and New Zealand bouncing from hotel to hotel, it was perfect restful "home". The new owners, Beth and Wayne,... More

I stayed here over the weekend, very beautiful place. Very good location close to the shops and restaurants and only a 2 minute walk to the beach! Wish I stayed longer, will definitely stay here next time.

Excellent location right in the middle of Macrossan street but not noisey. Great views across the town to the hills (we had the penthouse). Room was a little tired but very comfortable. Our hosts were very accommodating given some last minute changes due to unforeseen circumstances. We'll be going back next time we stay at PD.

We rented both penthouses to accommodate family for a wedding and stayed for four days. The apartments were beautifully presented and clean and well equipped. Saltwater is close to everything and you don't need to use the car unless to going further afield. Coles is across the road and is open long hours. There is every imaginable food choice nearby...
