This is an ideal accommodation for the right reasons. First, the location is perfect for swimming at Four-Mile Beach, walking and shopping in Port Douglas, and booking trips day-trips to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree rainforest. Second, the apartments (and the swimming pool area) are clean, well maintained, and comfortably furnished. Third, Andrew and Melissa are extraordinarily kind and... More

Mowbray by the sea was perfectly positioned for our family of 5. We had a 2 bedroom apartment for 8 nights and really enjoyed it. The Manager Andrew was really friendly, accommodating and helpful. The Apartment it'self was spacious enough, it wasn't 5 star accommodation but neither was it shabby. The pool was located directly off our unit which was... More

In early June we took a group of 28 golfers to Port Douglas and stayed at Mowbray by the Sea. Andrew and Melissa were fantastic hosts and couldn't have been more helpful both with our planning before arrival and all our requirements during our stay. The apartments are in the perfect location, close to the sea and good walking distance... More

Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at Mowbray by the Sea. The complex is not too large and has a long narrow warm pool. It is a 2 minute walk to 4 mile beach and 5 minute walk to Mossman St which is one of the main shopping/eating 'strips' in Port Douglas- so I would say... More

High rated apartment and we were not disappointed. My wife, two children and I really enjoyed our week here in July. The apartment was well appointed with oven, stove, fridge, dishwasher, tv with foxtel, air conditioners in each room and ceiling fans. We used both indoor and outdoor dining settings and the living area. Each room had a bathroom, toilet... More

Mowbray really suited our needs. We wanted a place that was very close to the beach and still only a few minutes walk to Macrossan St, and that had a heated pool. Mowbray fit this criteria perfectly and was also great value, with very friendly and helpful managers. Apartments were well kept and clean and very spacious. As a family... More

Had a fantastic 5 night stay here. Excellent rooms and facilities, fantastic heated pool. Perfect location - walking distance to shops, cafes, restaurants and beach. Loved the free use of the beach toys, balls, beach chairs. Great free wifi. Andrew, the owner was always friendly and helpful. Cannot fault. Will return.
