“Back again and even better than last time”

Having stayed there the year before we came to stay again between Christmas and new years 2016/2017. Like last time the place was in perfect condition and had everything you need for a self catered stay. Lisa & Phil even added a few extra perks to the apartment. The location is as good as it gets, super close to Fourmile beach and an easy stroll from the restaurants and the markets. The room was quiet and away from the noise. Lisa & Phil are very helpful and accomodating. As one of us is a former Port Douglas local we visit fairly regularly and we have stayed in several places in town. For us this has been our favourite spot and we'll be staying there again if we can, when we come up next.

Friedrich is the guest that every owner looks forward to having being perfect in every way possible from great communication & respecting the apartment during his stays and leaving the apartment on checkout like he hasn't been there.
Having great friendly guests return is exciting and we certainly look forward to Friedrich returning to his favourite Nautical apartment soon.
We appreciate the accurate review on everything that was important to his stay with us and pleased he chose us again to spend their holiday with.
Thank you and look forward to your next visit with us.

Perfect location in Port Douglas with a short stroll to everything, including the beach!
The owners of this property communicated very well from the time of booking right through to checking up on us during our stay to make sure we were comfortable.
The apartment itself was very inviting, clean and modern.
The balcony has the perfect view of the main street and beach.
The pool and spa was perfect to end a day of exploring the region.
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay. Would highly recommend to anyone planning the perfect stay in Port Douglas :)
Thanks so much Phil and Lisa.

Reviewed December 26, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

The clean comfortable apartment has everything you need . The day bed on the balcony is a touch of luxury. Being at the beach end of Macrossan St and close to restaurants, cafes and shops is absolutely perfect. Everything is a short walk away. No need for a car. The pool is small and shady, perfect to spend an afternoon lounging beside after a morning on the beach . Bliss.
Phil and Lisa are the perfect hosts. They have thought of everything, are welcoming warm and friendly.
Can't wait to return.

“Best location on Macrossan and super hosts!”
Reviewed November 17, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Port Douglas Apartments. We stayed for three weeks and enjoyed every minute. The owners, Phil and Lisa, are the hosts with the most! They are so friendly and attentive... always there to help, if needed. The apartment (Asian Contemporary) is a good size and tastefully decorated. It's kitted out for everything you would need for a weekend or a longer stay. We also like that it's located on the quiet end of Macrossan near the beach. This is our third time back to stay in Phil and Lisa's apartment and we're already looking forward to our next visit!

Thank you so much Kelly for your fabulous review when you have only just left us.
After your 3rd stay with us over 6yrs we feel like friends and you both are just the best guests owners could ask for.
The apartment was left as always so neat & tidy, after a 3week stay you looked like you did a full clean on checkout
Your communication throughout the booking was perfect to prepare us for your arrival ✍
We can only say thank you for the pleasure of your company throughout your stay and really look forward to having you again.
Please take care and stay in touch anytime..

“Comfortable apartment in great location”

This was a great place to stay in Port Douglas, positioned a short walk from 4 mile beach and the main eating/shopping area of Macrossan street, and the Marina maybe 15-20 mins walk away. It was a well designed, compact but comfortable air-conditioned space, with a little balcony to catch the breeze. There was a small pool and spa, that did not seem to be heavily utilised and we had to ourselves. Phil was very attentive and helpful via phone contact, and Mikayla assisted us with booking a couple of reef trips that fitted in very well with the weather conditions and limited time available.
