“Good value and well located apartments.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Freestyle apartments are well located, walkable from the main drag but far enough away to feel quiet. The apartments themselves are basic, but have everything you'd ever need, including consumables. They were spacious and clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers were very powerful. It is true to say that our host, Anne, provided exceptional service during our stay, and was always on hand to advise on activities, restaurants or just for a chat. Wifi was included (with 500 MB download limit per person) and we were offered a late checkout without even asking, which was well received since we had a late flight. Our only gripe, and this is a small one, would be that laundry machines were charged at $4 per wash/dry, whereas other places we stayed at offered these facilities free of charge.

My parents and I were in Port Douglas for a quick visit and we accidently stumbled across the Freestyle Resort. It was lovely and quiet, and relaxing, very clean and had ample space. The host was very informative and helpful, and made our stay even better, as had a very good knowledge of Port Douglas and surrounds. Would stay for longer next time.

Stayed one week in Port Douglas. Anne helped us organise all our tours and provided great advise on when and what to see. The room was clean and comfortable and the option of eating in or walking to restaurants really suited us. Would happily stay again.

We stayed for 5 nights during the school holidays, and really enjoyed our holiday. Freestyle provided a comfortable, well-equipped apartment, with balcony overlooking the pool and free wi-fi. The pool area is the place to be on a hot afternoon after being out and about throughout the day. Port Douglas is the gateway to the outer reef for snorkelling and the Daintree Rainforest and Mossman Gorge for hiking and exploring. Freestyle Apartments are conveniently located less than a 10 minute walk from the shops, restaurants and marina. Anne, the host, was a wealth of local information, advising us on the best places to visit, shop and eat, and nothing was too much trouble for her. We'll be staying at Freestyle again.

Room Tip: A room overlooking the pool is my pick. Higher up and the wi-fi is better.

We went to Port Douglas for a family get-together for a week in September. The folks at the freestyle gave us a very reasonable deal on a two bedroom apartment for a week. Very nice place with clean rooms and great service. Anne was very welcoming, stayed back late to meet us at the office and showed us around the room on the third floor as well as marking the major local sights on our map. We had a great week. Well and truly worth staying here.

My sister, brother in-law, husband and myself stayed at Freestyle from the 13th September 2013 for a week. We could not have been made more welcome. Anne even had us on the same level with connecting doors which was great for when we were having meals. She was also helpful with information on Port Douglas and surrounds. Extra towels whenever needed just little things that made our stay very comfortable. Very clean, lovely pool area and gardens.

We stayed in a two bedroomed apartment for four days in August. The upstairs bedroom and bathroom had a gorgeous tropical feel to it that instantly got us in a holiday mood. The downstairs bedroom was very private with its own bathroom perfect for our teenager! Everything was clean and user friendly and we enjoyed getting into the Australian spirit and cooking on the shared barbecue and dining on our terrace. It was a pleasant walk into the central street and the bars, restaurants and port. In particular, we were able to really enjoy the rainforest and the Barrier Reef because of Anne's kind sharing of her detailed knowledge about the different trips on offer. This allowed us to choose what was best for us and ensure a wonderful holiday was had by all.
