“Good Location, clean and spacious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We stayed here as a group of friends, for a wedding. we had a large clean well appointed appartment with Kitchen and hot tub in the master bedroom, it was Ok value wise, especially as we booked it through Booking.com and got a discount. The view from the balcony was excellent, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. the place was on the whole pretty quiet, and every time we used the pool or poolside BBQ we had it mostly to ourselves. it has off street free parking and wifi at a small cost for the length of stay. The location is perfect just off the mainstreet.

Stayed in a three bedroom apartment. The place is quite nice but by no means luxury. Not sure that the floors are mopped thoroughly because we always had black feet. John is lovely but Carolyne is plain rude and abrupt. The noise from our apartment was ridiculous. The bin that collects rubbish at 6.30am every morning was so loud as was the noise from people on the street in the early hours of the morning. The fire alarm going off in the middle of the night was also very frustrating.

Thanks for your review and feedback.
I apologise if you considered me to be abrupt and rude but can't recall any issues that would have prompted the comments. It certainly wasn't intended.
As you can see by past reviews there has not been a comment like this before.
Once again apologies.

Had a awesome weekend here with family celebrating a 7th and 40th birthday. Lovely clean apartments. Only trouble was the over sensitive fire alarms which we encountered after cooking in the oven . Meal was spoilt by management and fire service visiting us.

Thanks for your great review.
Your comment regarding the fire alarms is misleading. There was quite a lot of smoke in your apartment caused through cooking. The fire alarms are set to the standards of the Queensland Government and are there to save lives. They are not set to be too sensitive.
A small inconvenience for yourself but a big inconvenience for the fire service and ourselves as managers.
We do inform guests on their arrival of the fire alarms and the majority of guests have no problems at all. We ourselves have lived on site for over 10 years and cook almost every night and have not set the fire alarm off.

We loved our stay at Saltwater, it was perfect for our needs. We stayed in a 2BR apartment which was clean & comfortable. Loved the layout of the apartment which included a small laundry, generous living area, kitchen, and 2 bathrooms with the main bathroom having a huge spa and good storage space. Beds/linen were comfortable. The kids loved the pool & the wifi was $20 for one week. Parking was included and secure.
The only negative for us was that we could hear street noise late at night (particularly at pub closing time) & the guy with the leaf blower at 7am some mornings was a bit annoying - a bit early if you were hoping to have a sleep in!! John was very helpful on our arrival and even though reception had just closed he still took the time to have a chat about activities/day trips in the area.
Shopping is easy - Coles supermarket is across the road & only a 2 minute walk away, along with a bottle shop.
Overall a great place to stay.

Thanks for your great review.
We appreciate you taking the time to write the review.
We have approached the local council on a regular basis but the leaf blowers are here to stay. It's only for a short time and 7am isn't too bad. At least everything is clean on the streets.
We are surprised by the comments about street noise as we live on the first level and very rarely hear anything from the street so hopefully next time you won't be disturbed.

My mum, dad, husband and I just had the weekend in Port Douglas for Carnivale, John and Carolyn from Saltwater Apartments were the most wonderful hosts nothing was too much trouble. The apartment was very clean, spacious and well equipt. Location is perfect, just a short walk from all the action. Just wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks for a great place to call home in Port!

Holiday makers are spoilt for choice in Port Douglas. I was finding it particularly difficult to settle on a place for 4 days as so many looked lovely. I decided to go with Saltwater Luxury Apartments because of all the great reviews and we required 2 bedrooms.
Pro's: The location cannot be beaten - middle of Macrossan Street. We heard no noise at all. Apartment was immaculate and cutlery, crockery and glassware were in abundance. Even the second bathroom and adjoining bathroom was of good size. Beds were very comfortable.
Con's: The double lot of stairs did not worry us but could prove a problem for someone with mobility issues. The pool was a perfect temperature in the afternoon but we missed having an umbrella for shade. If you enjoy a large balcony you will not be happy with the one on offer here - unless you book the Penthouse. Being self-serviced apartments allow time the morning of your departure to take out all rubbish and load dishwasher etc. which is no big deal ( unless you have an early transfer back to Cairns)

These apartments are ideally located in central Port Douglas on Macrossan St so everything is within walking distance. John provided some very handy information on travelling up to the Daintree and Mossman Gorge, and also about local restaurants. Very clean, well equipped, made use of the BBQ. Beds were a little firmer than is our preference but any downsides were more than compensated for by the great location.
