The new hosts Andrew and Melissa were so friendly and couldn't do enough to make our stay the best it could be. Mowbray is in a fabulous position especially if you want to be near the beach (and who from... More

We were literally five minutes walk to the beach & lots of great restaurants and shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Port Douglas - the locals are very friendly, the lifestyle very laid back and the... More

The pool is amazing with plenty of sun lounges with towels provided. The owners Andrew &Melissa are warm & welcoming & happy to help in anyway they can. We... More

There are a lot of big resorts to stay in Port Douglas but if you want something more boutique with the ideal location and good value for money - book Mowbray By The Sea. It's super close to the beach and a 5 min walk to all the shops, all apartments are the same, they're spacious, comfortable and good quality.... More

This is a quiet, smallish, low rise block of self contained apartments in a fabulous location. Beautiful 4 mile beach is one block away.  It's a short walk to the shops, Sunday market, RSL club and park.  The yacht club is a slightly longer walk (approx 20-30 mins). We stayed in apartment 17 which is spacious, clean and well appointed... More

We could not speak more highly of 'Mowbray By The Sea' and owners Andrew & Melissa Curran. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our holiday by a further 8 days on top of the initial 10. Mowbray is an affordable 4+ Star Rated Accommodation comprising of 17 Apartments/Units in a great location right next to the beach... More

Found this place on Expedia and we will definitely be back - Andrew and Melissa are the friendliest hosts, the place is so close to the beach and the main street, apartments are excellent, adn the best thing is the pool which is brilliant for kids of all ages.
