“Take a trip to Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We do not often give a 5 star review, but this establishment earns it. On arrival we were greeted like old friends. Our apartment was on the first floor and the view from our balcony was of tropical bush. Clean and comfortable with a great balcony which we had most of our meals on. Although just back from Mudlo Street, we had little problem with noise. we never closed curtains or windows - all the windows had fine mesh outside to keep away any flying unwanted guests! It was only a few minutes walk to the beach or the shops and harbour. All the floors were of white tiles which helped to keep the place cool - the only small problem we had was that if you wanted to sit up and read in bed, the bed started to roll away from the wall on its castors!!! we fixed this with some un-needed clothes under the castors! Would we recommend this accommodation? Most certainly!!!

We stayed at The Port Douglas Queenslander in mid June. We found the location close to everything. The beach, town and marina were all only a 5 minute walk away. Our two bedroom suite was fresh, modern, spacious and quiet. No sign of the terrible bats we had heard so much about, I think they may have moved to central Cairns. The hosts Julie and Gavin were friendly and allways happy to help. The only critiscism I have is that they take the whole self catering thing to the max. So make sure you buy plenty of loo paper because after the first roll your on your own and its user pays all the way. You also have to supply your own detergents etc. But really this is minor stuff, it's a lovely place and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Well it's fantastic to be able to stay in a place where you are so delighted because of the pristine condition of the apartment and the beautiful gardens and swimming pool, so much so that you would be happy to unwind by not going out at all! However the Queenslander was lovely to come home to after a relaxing stroll in the town which is walking distance but not so close that you don't have a peaceful environment if you want to chill out quietly. The feeling of coming home was largely because of Julie and Gavin who made me feel as a single person incredibly comfortable and welcome. Julie was very wise and informed in her advice about best trips from Port Douglas.
Will definitely have to return to Port Douglas to regenerate the batteries and the Queenslander will be my choice because of the quality of the apartments, the friendliness and commitment of the managers and the location which is ideal. Love the bird chorus in the morning!

Great location close to marina, shops and beach, very well presented and very personable managers - what more could you want! Would love to go back.

Port Douglas just about the best spot for holidays in Australia, for winter bound southerners.

Very pleased with our recent stay at the Queenslander. Lovely and quiet in a convenient location- only 5 minutes walk to the beach and a few minutes walk to Macrossan Street. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit overlooking the pool. The unit was spacious and clean and we had plenty of room for all 4 of us. We would definitely return to the Queenslander next time we're in Port Douglas.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 nights at the Queenslander. Julie and Gavin were fantastic, and helped us with any questions we had about the area including the best restaurants, tours, etc. Julie handled all our bookings for tours and transport, so we only had one bill to settle. The apartment was set up beautifully and we had everything we needed. The location is perfect, close to town but far enough away for peace and quiet. We'll definitely be back!

We enjoyed our 3 night stay very much. The 1 BR apartment had everything we needed. Located in a perfect position, walking distance to everything but in a quiet location. The hosts, Julie and Gavin were most helpful with everything, including booking our tours and providing all the information we needed for our stay. Would definitely choose to stay here again when we come to Port Douglas next!
