Having stayed in Port Douglas many times at many different properties this one has to come out on top for ticking ALL the boxes . The location is perfect , a short 2 minute walk to the beach , enjoy a fantastic breackie or coffee at The Beaches Cafe and lunch at The Lifesavers cafe , both really good and right on the beach , so lovely to have a coffee after a morning stroll on the beach and watch the sun rise over the sea . 5 minute walk to town for restaurants and shopping and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the marina . So easy . We had a 2 bedroom apartment , both bedrooms had an en-suite and were beautiful . Extremely clean and had everything you'd need including a large balcony with a lovely sofa , easy chair and table and chairs . The pool was crystal clean all the time , great BBQ area . This place is definitely one that I'd come back to without hesitation . The beds were super comfy and the pillows and linen smooth and clean .
They do offer free WiFi which was dreadfully slow and really more frustrating than anything . Also they offer free local calls but neither of the phones in the apartment had a dial tone even when I asked what number to press to get one it still didnt work , no big deal as most people have a mobile . But the one big thing that was missing that most other properties have was brollies . Most places either put a couple in the wardrobe or have a big plant pot in the entrance with loan umbrellas and when it rains in Port ....it pours . I would have rather had a brolly than the wifi and phone calls as its not something you carry on the plane . Just a little thing but definitely a small investment that would be very much appreciated .
Over all though this place is fantastic and for the price I'd recommend it to anyone , we shall certainly be coming back to this little gem
