“So Central”
Reviewed August 20, 2007

We are a family of 5, with three kids under 11 years. We stayed at The Beach Terraces for a week in July. We had a two bedroom apartment with a rollaway bed for our third child. The apartment was spacious and clean. There are three pools for the kids, plenty of information available for reef cruises etc. The Beach Terraces are only a few minutes walk from beautiful Four Mile Beach and about 5 minutes from Macrossan Street in the centre of Port Douglas. It was our first time visiting Port Douglas and the owners were very helpful with advice on what to do. It was great to be able to hire beach towels too. Our Quiksilver bus picked us up outside our door. It was fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday are were sorry we weren't staying longer. We'll be back!

We spent 7 nights at Beach Terraces after looking it up on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. The position is great - close to beach and Macrossan Street. The bus stop is seconds away and there is also a bus that comes past the front on a regular basis ( for wider travels). Unfortunately the weather was not ideal, although it was warm it was windy, and the beach was shut for a few days. The owners/managers were very friendly and helpful. If you have young children I would ask for a ground floor apartment as there are no elevators, we were lucky enough to have unit 1 which looked out onto the street and also over the pool at the back. There are 3 pools - two out the front one of which is a paddling pool (these seem to be in the shade most of the time) and one out the back. It was very quiet and we would definately recommend it.

Stayed in the beachfront terraces for 6 nights. The location is fabulous with ocean views and 2 minutes across the very quiet road to the 4 mile beach. The property is in 2 parts with the terraces being the older, the other section is know merely as Beaches. The apartment was huge. We had a 2 bedroomed, with 2 bathrooms. The property is over 2 floors. The downstairs is open plan with fully fitted kitchen and utility with washing machine and dryer (washing powder supplied). The kitchen is fully equipped with cleaning materials and cleaners, also washing up liquid supplied. There is a dining area and living area with TV, DVD, video and radio. The apartment is fully airconditioned. There are 3 terraces one off the living area, and one off each of the bedrooms. The rear one is huge with loungers and table and chairs. The front one has the best ocean views. The apartment is within easy walking distance of the the main street. Port Douglas is not very big and easy to get around. The property also has 2 pools. There was also a supply of tea, coffee and milk. There was also a dishwasher. This was a great location and an extremely well equipped apartment. Very spacious and comfortable. Also great value for money at only 190 australian dollars a night. I would thoroughly recommend this property.

After 2 weeks of going around in Goldcoast and sunshine coast, it was a welcome relive to stay at the beach terraces for 10 days.

The apartment was airy and spacious, we had a 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom apartment. The apartment was huge for us with only a child.The apartment are clean and tidy. The resort manager George and Treveen were so helpful that they booked all our tours.

We enjoyed the daily walk to the beach (3 Mins)and to the village which is only a 10 mins walk away. There are 2 pools at the terraces.
Eating out is expensive does we did most of the cooking at the apartment, but on our last day we found a restuarant near the wharfs called the community club where the locals go for their dinners/drinks. The setting is excellent facing the wharfs, as you sit down to have your dinner, you could watch the boats go by. The price is also reasonable Regretted not finding it earlier.

We have just returned from 8 nights at the Beach Terraces. We chose them because of their vicinity to the beach and town and were not disappointed. We found the bathroom/laundry a bit of a worry due to the condensation. But the living and sleeping areas were excellent. The owners were most helpful. As we are from a colder climate (N.Z.) we would have preferred the pools to have been heated. Unfortunately for us, there was a major building project going on, we had our own alarm clock every day.

Accommodatin was clean and modern with all the conveniences including washing machiens and dishwashers Mid winter when we went but swam every day at the beach (5 min walk away) and shoped every day (10 Min walk away). Motel pool a little cool but was fine. Great BBQ.
TV should have been larger but would stay there again rather than risk another place to stay. Great place on the whole

We stayed here at the beginning of our travels around Australia and could not have chosen a better place. Nice peceful appartments, two minutes stroll to the beach (should you wish to stray from the two beautiful pools they have there).
Good size appartments with all mod cons supplied. It was a little strange to get used to the bathroom also being the laundry room at first but all worked well.
This is a family run business, and the husband and wife team really do help you a lot.
There is A great BBQ area with tools provided and you can sit by the pool at night and eat in peace.
The appartments are a 5 min walk into the main shopping area and could not be better positioned.
We would return if we were in the area again as Port Douglas in itself is an excellent place to visit.
