After being in Sydney for a week and eating out every day, we welcomed the chance to stay in an apartment and eat home food. The apartments were very modern and immaculately clean. It has an ideal location, two minutes walk to Cole´s (and Target), a few blocks to the beach and the Marina and the great restaurants in between.... More

I have now stayed at the Saltwater apartments twice in the last few months and have enjoyed both visits very much. The apartments are very clean and quiet and in a fantastic location. They are also great value especially given the central location on Macrossan street with restaurants and cafes all around as well as Coles directly across the road.... More

We recently visited Port Douglas for a second time, and as there were 5 of us in our group decided on the Saltwater Apartments. They were in a fabulous location and very easy to locate, with parking available underneath. On arrival we were met by John, despite us arriving quite late, to be pleasantly informed we had been upgraded to... More

The old Real Estate adage holds true for Saltwater. The location on the corner of Macrossan and Grant is perfect for the tourist in Port Douglas, especially with a family of 5 and 3 little ones needing prams/strollers/bags etc. We walked everywhere, and easily. Coles is practically across the road, it really was perfect. So if I were reading this,... More

Many thanks for the positive comments for Saltwater but as the author felt it necessary to post a couple of negatives [albeit minor in nature according to the author] our responses are as follows: Rubbish smell: A couple of unfortunate attributes of the tropics are the heat and humidity which can cause the best wrapped food scraps to "go off"...

This property is in the ideal location for discovering Port Douglas. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment. The rooms are smart and clean, although like some of the other travellers have commented, the ensuite toilet in the main bedroom is VERY open plan! Also, the balcony is very small, so as we had another couple with us we were... More

Thank you for your review and your comments regarding the ensuite bathroom and balcony. We do have our floor plans on our website so that guests can choose which type of apartment they would like. There is a second separate bathroom in the apartment if needed. The balconies on some of the apartments are resonably small but if you open... More

We stayed as a couple in a 2bdrm apartment, so naturally there was plenty of space to spread out. The Apartment was modern and immaculately clean, and John talked us through the ins-and-outs of the Apartment, and Port Douglas in general. His recommendations for eating and sightseeing were spot-on. I was happy i had booked an in-town apartment rather than... More

These apartments are spacious and clean, fitted out with everything you will need for your stay. The hosts are lovely and the location unbeatable. Saltwater is in the heart of Port Douglas: there's restaurants, bars, and supermarkets meters away. The beach is at the end of the street, as is the Marina where many day trips leave from. John was... More

We have just checked out after 5 lovely nights at Saltwater. The apartments were clean and quiet and offered everything we needed.
