If your looking for Holiday Appartments in Port Douglas the Saltwater is the Place to Choose. The Appartments are right in the middle of Port Douglas which means it just a short stroll to all the shopping, dining and other activities in town. Saltwater Appartments are modern and clean, they are well furnished and have very comfortable beds. We selected... More

We have recently returned from a five night stay at Saltwater. The location is perfect, walking distance to everything, the apartment (we stayed in a two bedroom penthouse) was very clean and had everything you needed plus more and John & Carolyne were lovely people that went out of their way to assist us. We will definitely be returning !!

Saltwater is right in the middle of Port Douglas which is a great plus having stayed further out in the past and had to drive / get the bus to get to places. We stayed in a three bedroom aprtment, which are not always easy to find. The bedrooms were of differing sizes but given they are for sleeping the... More

We stayed at Saltwater for 4 nights in March in one of their 2 bed/2 bath apartments. The apartment was spacious and modern and the location (right in the middle of Maccrossan St) was fabulous! The apartments are located at the rear of a shopping arcade so despite being so central to the action, they are surprisingly quiet. The apartment... More

We stayed for 4 nights in March in a 2 bedroom apartment (#11). As we arrived in the evening we drove past it the first time (retail on the first floor). The apartment is lovely. The master bedroom does have the open concept bathroom which is a bit strange but if that’s the only negative I don’t think it’s too... More

Thank you for the great review. We are happy that you had a great stay at Saltwater. We were unaware that there was a problem with the internet reception. We have checked the reception with another lap top but were able to get full reception. We will certainly monitor the situation so other guests do not have the same problem.... More

We stayed as 2 couples in a 2 bed apartment for 7 nights. The location is excellent, bang in the middle of PD with all the bars, restaurants and beaches in easy walking distance. The apartment itself was huge with a very plush master bedroom and a less plush but perfectly acceptable second bedroom. The facilities in the apartment were... More

Before writing this review (am doing so whilst still in the apartment), I thought I'd see what others had written. I can't believe anyone could find the slightest reason not to want to stay here. You are right in the middle of town, the apartments are spacious, modern and spotless and Jon and Carolyne are perfect hosts. We were only... More

John and Carolyn were great people, this is their own business and they kept Saltwater in such great conditions. The apartment themselves are huge and comfortable, not to mention clean. It's right across the street from Coles, so you can get your groceries easily. They provide you with a kitchen so you can cook your own food if you like.... More

Yes indeed, reading through some of the reviews below the answer must be 'yes' to the slightly unusual layout of the apartments and 'yes' to the potential for street noise. But these are avant garde apartments - comfortable, stylish, immaculately clean, well finished and perfectly located in the heart of town. They would suit almost all classes of discerning travellers... More

Port Douglas is wonderful and the best way to experience it is by staying in Saltwater. The apartment was spotless, had all amenities and was right in centre of Port Douglas. John & Carolyn were really helpful for booking trips etc, we had a great time and would go back again. i highly recommend staying here.
