After flying from Perth after two weeks on a cruise ship, we thought we had died and gone to heaven when we arrived at our Balboa apartment! So spacious, light and airy, decorated in tropical greens and whites, with a lovely view across the street of 4 mile beach and the Coral Sea - it was paradise!
The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could need for a week's stay - we just needed to provide the food - and Coles was right down Macrossen St. with a wonderful selection. The bed was very comfortable and having 2 bathrooms was a pleasure. The huge wraparound deck overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens was fantastic also. And the pool was a delight we enjoyed almost every day since the weather was extremely hot and humid (but thankfully we had very little rain!).
Lynette and Andrew were wonderful managers who booked our sunset cruise and Great Barrier Reef tours and also provided good advice about trips to Mossman Gorge and Daintree River to see the crocs - and then suggested we visit the wildlife habitat to see all the other animals we missed during our visit to Australia -- and it was great!
Our week in Port Douglas was one of the highlights of our trip, and the Balboa was the perfect accommodation- we highly recommend it!
