“Quiet Haven”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We stayed six nights in a studio room May 2012 and thoroughly enjoyed the tranquility of the location and hospitality of staff. Close enough to walk anywhere in Port Douglas and enough removed to be serene. Thanks Tim and staff.

10 minute walk to town and 5 minute walk to beach.
Good value for money. Had two bedrooms. Clean and all the essentials. Helpful staff. Could perhaps have stayed a block or two closer to main street as hot walking home each night after dinner

We arrived here midway through our holiday in April 2011, the lady on reception was very helpful and contacted our excusion companies to arrange pick ups to save us using our mobile and advised us that we wouldn't need a pick-up for the Great Barrier Reef excursion as we could walk to the Jetty. We found our room on the ground floor and were pleasantly surprised to find it was an apartment with a kitchen, air con, T.V, washing machine & tumble dryer! so we took advantage of this and washed our towels etc. The apartment had a small patio overlooking the small pool and surrounded by shrubs and trees which offered some welcome shade. The main room was 'L' Shaped incorporating the kitchen, dining area & lounge. The bedroom was a little small, but adequate, with an en-suite bathroom. We walked into Port Douglas which took us approx 15 mins. Although it is a large complex of apartments we didn't hear any noise and were the only people in the pool whilst we were there!

We booked several rooms at this place for a family re-union. We chose this establishmnet from friends recommendations. It was fairly well located, two blocks from the Main St, marina, beach and local tennis courts. These are self-catering apartments, fairly spacious and I think pretty good value for money really. Two pools which were handy for the kids ( they liked having a choice ). Staff were helpful and friendly, which made things easier for worn out travellers. It was clean and had full laundry facilities which were a welcome relief when trying to juggle a limited clothing selection.
We were impressed with the spacious lounge area in our apartment, (which was a ground floor) with a small courtyard as well.
Overall I would give this place a thumbs up. Nothing fancy but reasonably priced compared to some of the places in Port Douglas.
We would stay here again.

This apartment-style hotel is in a good location, just a 10 minute walk to town or to the beach.

We had a studio unit, which was very basic – a double bed; minimal storage for clothes; smallish bathroom; small kitchen "corner" (not enough room to open or store luggage)

The grounds & pool are very nice, and there are free laundry facilities on-site.

Office staff are very friendly and helpful.

There is no on-site restaurant or grocery/convenience store, so keep that in mind, based on your arrival time. (ie. you'll need to walk into town to eat or get food for your unit)

NOTE: The office is basically open "business hours" (ie. 8 or 9 am to 5 or 5:30 pm; 4 pm on weekends), so if you will be arriving after-hours, call ahead ito make arrangements for getting your room key, etc.

My partner and I and our 4 grown up children stayed here for 4 nights at the start of our Australia adventure. We were given 1 two bed and 1 studio apartment which were adjacent and suited us fine. The accomodation was clean and well equipped. There are 2 swimming pools which were beautiful and an outside dining area with a BBQ which guests can use. The villas are on the outskirts of the town and it takes just less than 10 minutes to walk in. The beach is about the same distance. The staff were very polite and helpful. Would stay here again - recommended.
