“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2010

This place is right in the middle of things.
Units are very well equipped, very clean and tidy.
My only concern is the sensitivity of the fire alarm as they can be set off just from cooking toast. Would definately stay again.

We stayed at Salt Water recently for one week on our honeymoon. It was all we could have hoped for. Very modern, clean and comfortable. The spa was a treat although the weather was almost too humid to want to use it. The pool was a perfect temperature, very clean and blue and nice and quiet. Secure underground car parking was handy. The owners were very accomodating, friendly and helpful. A wonderful holiday. We highly recommend Salt Water and hope to come back one day in the near future.

We stayed at Saltwater Luxury Apartments for our honeymoon for 7 days and we are so happy we chose to stay there. Our hosts John and Carolyne were always on hand to offer information about Port Douglas and recommend tours, places to eat etc, and we found their advice to always be spot on! It took a lot of guesswork out of choosing from the hundreds of tours and restaurants in Port Douglas. From the start John helped carry our luggage to our apartment and was very helpful, and our first impression of the apartment was wow! It was incredibly spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and had a beautiful view of the distant mountains and ocean, and also had all the conveniences to make our stay comfortable. From the huge spa bath and marble bathroom with lovely toiletries and an abundance of white fluffy towels, to marble kitchen benchtops, massive fridge, cable TV, massive balcony with dining table and sun lounges, to the comfy lounge chairs and huge TV, as well as really new looking laundry, we were in luxury heaven! Even though we had a few days of rain on our honeymoon, the apartment was a cosy and self-contained space to chill, and was so quiet whilst being in the centre of Port Douglas, we couldn't hear any sound from the street at all. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice with sun lounges and was never too crowded. We were so close to Coles and cafe/restaurants that it was easy to shop for stay and stay in for meals or literally walk 30 seconds to really high quality coffees, brekkys, lunches and dinners. John recommended a crocodile tour which was excellent, and we found our apartment to be the perfect comfy base to our many walk around town. I highly recommend Saltwater and John and Carolyne, and believe it really is a hidden gem that is very 5-star luxurious without the massive price tag of the other resorts.

The Apartment was very nicely appointed and very clean. It was situated within the main street giving easy access to all local amenities, where a number of the other main accommodation was a taxi or bus ride away. facilities run by a small family business who were on hand to cater for all our requirements, including booking all tours and excursions. Very approachable and frinedly in ensuring that all our needs were caterd for. The apartments are on 2 floors and the only thing that we could comment on was the lack of a lift. We will defionately stay there again and have no hesitation in recommending to family and friends.

Our Australian adventure started in Port Douglas and it was a wonderful introduction to such a welcoming and amazing country. We happened upon great weather and an annual carnival as well. Obviously we chose Port Douglas to see the Reef and the Rainforest. SaltWater was an excellent location to be based. The beach was a short walk away and we were right in the heart of town; we had our choice of restaurants and shops and were easily able to get around without a car. We used the local bus system and/or had pre-arranged tours (backcountry for the rainforest and haba for the reef). We were sad to leave and wished we could have stayed a few more days. The condo was spacious and very clean. I loved that we could open the windows for the fresh air. The furnishings were modern and in wonderful condition. It was nice to have a kitchen also (there is a market across the street as well). Only thing to note: We had a two bedroom/two bath and in the master the bathroom was open to the room (no doors or wall) -just something to consider.

Chose Port Douglas to see the Barrier Reef - great place -right decision. Picked Satwater because of TripAdviser reviews - again right decision. Lovely accommodation located on the main street - with it being the rainy season this was quiet - not sure if it gets noisy when the crowds are around - but for us everyhting was close to hand - perfect! Very helpful management giving us good advise on trips and restaurants

Great location, right in the middle of the town but quiet. Unit very nice with main bedroom containing bath and opening to familyroom/kitchen via folding doors-maybe not for everyone but we liked it. Nice shutters when open allowed for a nice distant view acrss town to the mountains. Hosts very helpful.
Pool a little small but we had been spoilt beforehand by the resort pool at one of the chain hotels.
