Wonderful holiday at Saltwater Luxury Apartments. Superb central location in Port Douglas, walking distance to everything; very handy for the beach and the Marina. John & Carolyne very welcoming and friendly; most helpful with information re sightseeing trips and what to do in and around Port Douglas. Apartment was top notch. Highly recommend Saltwater Apartments.

Saying "Thank You" to John and Carolyne is not enough. Our trip to Port Douglas was a last minute decision and one we will never regret. In fact, we will be returning to Port for another family holiday. We had not had a family holiday for some years and we enjoyed each day.

The Great Barrier Reef, Daintree Rainforest Tour, Horse-riding and Quad bike are some of the activities we did, courtesy of special arrangement by John and Carolyne.

The service provided by John and Carolyne in arranging the tours is outstanding. As there are so many great activities to choose from, we were not sure which ones to do, yet we wanted to make our trip memorable. John and Carolyne came to the rescue with their service, added with personal touch, they had us organised in no time. In fact, the personal service clearly showed even before we reached Port Douglas.

Although it was our first time to meet with John and Carolyne, we felt like we knew them for some time. For a truly amazing experience, one never to be forgotten, John and Carolyne are the ambassadors for Saltwater added with the touch of personal service they provide.

Our stay in Port will be one to remember and will be talked about for a long time.

Saltwater Luxury Apartments, is every bit "luxury" and as shown on the website. What you see is what you get. Saltwater is ideally located on the main street in Port Douglas, within walking distance to fine dining and cuisine, beachwear and arts shops plus more.

We would recommend Saltwater to our family and friends anytime. So if you are thinking of having a holiday in Port Douglas, whether it is a romantic getaway, holiday with family or friends, look no further than Saltwater Luxury Apartments for accommodation and tour arrangements. Have a truly amazing experience in Port Douglas.

Wow what a great apartment. We were 2 couples staying together and I have to say staying in the 2-bedroom penthouse was well worth the extra few bucks. We had a fabulous large balcony with a four place outdoor setting plus 2 loungers and basically when we were at the apartment this was where we were. The apartment is long and skinny but definately big enough for two couples or a family of four. Each bedroom has an ensuite although no doors (basically the bathrooms are inside the bedroom) so if you have privacy problems then this may not suit you, however there is a 3rd separate toilet with a door and good extractor fan. There are no extractor fans of any kind in the bedrooms/bathrooms. The apartments are smack bang in the middle of Macrossen street within easy walking distance of beach and all shops, restaurants etc. The penthouse is set back from the road and we had no problems with noise at all. The apartment was very clean and was decorated in a modern style. We were advised that the 2nd bedroom was a king bed but it was actually only two single slat beds pushed together. Not a problem for our friends as they liked to sleep on their own sides of the bed but would not suit those who like to snuggle in the middle!!! I would definitely stay here again

Just back after spending 9 nights at Saltwater Apts in Port Douglas. I did a fair bit of research before booking as we have a 4 year old and 3 month old. These apartments absolutely lived up to all the positive reviews. Spacious, well equipped, great value for money and perfectly located in the centre of town so we could walk everywhere.

My only concern from a few of the comments had been the number of steps,but it was fine, even with the stroller (use the steps by the Gazette office).

John and Carolyne were very helpful during the booking process and our stay.

We will definitely be going back!

The owners, John & Carolyne, provided friendly and excellent service and they were always accessible day or night. Property is in a great location right in the center of town. Secure and covered parking is provided.

We reserved 4 apartments for our wedding party, and everyone enjoyed the quality of furnishings and location. I would highly recommend this property.

bbq area

There are many restaurants here didn,t have abad meal in any
