“Average rooms, good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2010

The rooms are nothing fancy but have everything you need. Good for self catering. Nice pool and bbq area.
A bit of a walk from the main shops & restaurants of Port Douglas, but close to the beach (non-patrolled part anyway).
We were there for a week, and most of the time it was quiet and peaceful. Our last night was spoilt though by a loud, drunk, abusive neighbour. The manager helped out with cleanup and police when an ashtray was thrown at our front verandah. It spoilt our impressions a bit, but it was not the fault of management, they did everything they could after the problems became known.

Turned up out of hours, then spent the next hour getting all the info on the local area wonderful manager (Rodney), tried to accomodate all our requirements over the ten days we stayed.
He organised trips and tours which was unbiased and gave us the opportunity to relax as he carried out all tasks without question
Lychee Tree is a bit dated but is a clean, tidy and the position is exceptional for access to centre of Port Douglas, Marina and the beach
Would recommend Lychee Tree to all that travel to Port Douglas as an affordable alternative

We stayed last week as my husband need to be in Port for work. We really needed somewhere affordable that was 2 bed room and self catering (with a young child we really needed to eat in). Lychee Tree Apartments was great for what we needed. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and the bedrooms were a nice size for 2 adults and a younger child.
The shallow end of the pool was perfect and if we had stayed longer we would definitely have made use of the BBQ area. It was great having amenities near the pool area, so you don't need to go back and forth to your apartment.

Having a car meant town was a 2 minute drive away and there is a Chinese, Japanese and a pizza restaurant and bottle shop close by as well (within walking distance).

For family accommodation, I would recommend the Lychee Tree Apartments! Being family run, when we had to change the booking they were great and didn't slap on a heap of booking change fees that many of the larger places do. We got the feeling that they do care about their guests and this is a great change from chain-store style resorts and holiday apartments. Thanks Guys!

Spaceous, very clean apartments, very well equipped. Easy walk to beach. Easy bus ride into Port Douglas. Nice, well kept grounds and salt water pool. Very helpful manager, able to book all tours. Had a wonderful peaceful time there.

Not a bad place but was disappointed after seeing the website which makes it a lot better than it is. Affordable but totally "unspecial" - if you can spend a bit more I'd go elsewhere. Expect a 20 minute walk into town. Poor internet and strange manager! It fulfilled our needs but I like to stay at really nice places when I go away. Maybe I'm just fussy!

Wasn't too sure about this place on first entering the office but quickly felt at home. Very nice pool area, but could have been swept up a bit more often. The apartment was a spacious 2 bedroom. Nice & bright. Somewhat older but in good repair. Decent walking distance to town and the trail to 4 mile beach. Very quiet when we were there so we had the pool all to ourselves. Got good advice on dive trips and arranged all our trips. Advice was correct as the dive trip was amazing and came off exactly on time. i would def stay here again. Good value for the size and amenities.Since they are apartments you do not get maid service everyday but there is a washer and dryer in the apartment.

We stayed for two nights at the Lychee Tree in November 2009. Our apartment was extremely spacious and well equipped. Located slightly out of town, it is just a couple of minutes walk to the famous 4-mile beach, and an easy 10 minute walk into the centre of the Port Douglas (a relatively small town/village).

Ample parking is available next to each of the apartment units, and there is a decent pool and BBQ area. Plenty of information on tours and the local area is available, and the staff seemed friendly and helpful.

Lychee Tree represented good value for money and I would consider staying there again.
