Tropical Nites
Reviewed July 2, 2012

We've stayed here with the family before, and always look forward to coming back. The apartments are just the right size (3 bedrooms suit us with 2 teenagers), the gardens are great (take the time to look and you will see Ulysses and kookaburras), as is the pool, and Tania and Damian are fantastic hosts. 2 minutes walk to the beach, 5 minutes to the restaurants in town, and a very easy drive to everything else. Already rebooked for next time!

Room Tip: Standard rooms are great value - only difference seems to be 1 bathroom instead of 2

I can only quote the review of EMMA R "Tania and Damian are amazing hosts." The accommodation is excellant, our apartment was very spacious, very clean and comfortably furnished. The grounds are immaculate, and the gardens very tropical, a delight to be experienced.
Tania and Damian take the time to share their knowlege of the Port Douglas area with you, among the suggestions was to experience the joy of cruising on the " Lady Douglas" a paddle wheel boat up Packers Creek, and to quench your thirst at the "Tin Shed" which over looks Packers creek and the Coral Sea towards Cape Tribulation. This holiday has been one of my best, thanks to Tania and Damian

Room Tip: Ask for the apartment adjacent to the management building if available, it has large rooms a great b...

We have stayed at many properties in Port Douglas over time but none compare in the friendly hospitality stakes as Tropical Nites [ over and above expectations ] The 3 bedroom apartments are very large and ideal for families, well appointed , and very quiet compared to a lot of properties closer to Macrossan St. Value for money unbeatable!

We randomly picked a A Tropical Nite for a weeks stay for my daughters wedding. We booked 3 units and had friends book another 2 to accomodate our large extended family and friends. Tania is truly one of a kind. She made us feel so welcomed and went beyond all expectations to make our holiday one to remember.
To us she didn't feel like the manager but more like one of the family who pops in to say g'day and make sure all was well.
Myself, family and friends would have no hesitation in recommending A Tropical Nites for a wonderful, clean, family friendly townhouse for anyones next holiday to Port Douglas.
The hospitality industry needs to have a lesson from Tania on how to look after their guests as she was outstanding.

Room Tip: We had taken over 5 of the townhouses and all were renovated and furnished with modern tasting furni...

Tania & Damian are amazing hosts & are there to help out when you need them. They have up to date information about the best places for tourists to truly experience the beauty of Port Douglas & surrounding areas. Tropical Nites was all we could ask for in holiday accommodation for our family of 6. The apartment was bright & spacious, comfortable & clean, cooking facilities gr8 inside & out. The pool was gr8 to lounge beside or to cool off from the beautiful tropical weather. We could walk, ride or drive to town for shopping & supplies. The are situated near the walk/bike track that leads to Cook Hwy or into the heart of town or cross the road & just a few minutes away you're at the beach. You could not go past Tropical Nites for a truly memorable family holiday in FNQ. Thanks for the memories, we'll be back to make more in the future!!

Room Tip: All have gr8 access to the pool, we loved unit 14 because we could park undercover near our apartmen...

We chose Tropical Nites after finding a review of the place in an old edition of 'The Lonely Planet' and reading reviews on TripAdvisor.For some unexplained reason this superb gem isn't included in the latest Lonely Planet whereas other nearby accomodations are still included!Our 1 bedroomed townhouse was actually a 3 bedroomed townhouse with 2 of the bedrooms locked off.Our townhouse was about the same size as our own house in Cheshire, UK!
Location-the townhouses are a 6 minute walk to the bottleshop and local car hire.A 10 minute walk to 4 mile beach and a 20 minute walk to Macrossan Street.
A Ulysees butterfly often flew past our balcony and settled in the nearby hedge.
The Paslow family are superb and make you very welcome.
We stayed here for 3 weeks,our balcony faced the west and every Tropical Nite was spent enjoying a cool drink and watching the sun set-superb!

Room Tip: Most of the townhouses face north or east.Our No 3 townhouse faced the west for some excellent sunse...
