This is my 10th trip in as many years to Port Douglas, and I simply couldn't recommend these apartments more highly. Very few places in Port Douglas (despite a lot of misleading advertising!) are actually on the beach - these are, and pretty well all the units are positioned so that you can see it, from both inside the apartments, and the lovely big balconies. The apartments themselves are large, modern, and very well kept. Lovely furniture, good appliances, polished wooden floors, big bathrooms....If you're travelling with little kids, request one of the ground floor apartments, with either access direct to the pool, or a nice little lawn/garden area. And be aware that the building is 3 stories high, with stairs not lifts, so the ground floor units might work better for those with limited mobility.
They are self catering, so if you're looking for a full service hotel, don't stay here - but having said that, I have always found the front office staff to be friendly and helpful - special mention and thanks to Lesley and Tom here! And there's a great little beachside cafe attached to the complex on the corner facing the beach, which opens really early, and does very good coffees, juices, breakfasts and lunches - closes late afternoon. So everything you need is right there. And if you don't want to travel far for dinner, the surf club over the road is now really good, and seems to be very popular with the locals.
The other great thing about the location, is that you're just 5 minutes walk from Macrossen St, and the Port Douglas village and shops. Again, I notice with amusement that many other places neglect to tell you that their 'great' Port Douglas location requires a vehicle to get into town!
Sure, occasionally when we've arrived there might have been the odd dust bunny under a bed - but really, only very infrequently, and it hardly matters in the grand scheme of things when overall, the place you're staying in ticks so many boxes!
