“Fantastic value - great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

If you are planning a trip to Port Douglas, then staying near to Macrossan Street is essential if you want to be able to walk to everything. Tim & Michelle made us very welcome and they certainly seem to genuinely care that guests have a relaxing and enjoyable stay; they are always ready to help and offer advice. These apartments are spacious and extremely good value - contact Tim directly for your booking. We will be back again in the future.

Title pretty much sums it up. The management will literally go to the back and beyond out of their way to make sure you have a lovely stay. And they don't even need to do that as the rooms are large and spacious with every piece of living equipment you could think of. We gasped when we walked in because we just weren't expecting such an amazing apartment! It's a 5 minute walk to town, a 10 minute walk to the esplanade and 15/20 mins to the harbour. We couldn't have asked for me. Take our word for it, you want to stay here! If we could give it 6 stars we would!

thanks Tim and Michelle for making us feel welcome during our 4 night stay at Marina Terraces. Tim for carrying our bags up the 3 flights of stairs and giving us a top floor apartment with its own roof top garden. We will be back soon.

Hubbie and I enjoyed our stay. Our apartment was nicely furnished, comfortable and quiet! Good value for money . Easy walking distance to shops, Inlet and beach and comfy bed!! Downside? ...vertical blinds in main bedroom & shower curtain could do with replacement but that is really only negative... as overall was an excellent place to stay. Pool area although out the front is private and nicely landscaped and very relaxing!! Tim and Michelle are lovely hosts and make you feel at home..

These apartments are walking distance to main shops, restaurants & beach. Tim & Michelle are great hosts who have heaps of Nth Qld knowledge, so can assist with any info you need for your travels out and about and can book any day trips etc for you. The apartments are clean & tidy with everything you need for a few days or several weeks holiday and the Pool was in a great shady spot but with sunny patches for those that like to be in the sun :) Great holiday spot for Business, Couples, Family, Friends or Solo travellers.

Room Tip: We stayed in the 2 b'rm on the ground floor, lots of space and shady outdoor area. Not sure wha...

Spent 3 days in Port Douglas and stayed at the Marina Terraces. Tim & Michelle were excellent hosts providing everything you might need. Our 1 bedroom apartment was completely private and very quiet and we had our own little garden. After travelling for 3 weeks it was a joy to relax here, so close to the beach and all the shopping you could want. We are definitely coming back.

We are at Marina Terraces right now. All I Can say is Wow. We are blown away at how nice a place this is! Our host Tim and hostess Michelle are so willing to help out in every way and our room is totally awesome. They borrowed us a Diesel Toyota land cruiser to do some provisions shopping on our arrival. They book tours for you and take no commissions. They even get discounts for certain tours. The location can't be beat at less than one half block from Macrossan the main shopping and dining area and a very short walk to four mile beach. I would highly recommend this to anyone planning a trip to port Douglas area. So glad we came here instead of Cairns as this is closer to GBR and a smaller and quieter town. I recommend a car for shuttle from the airport as the shuttle was a very bouncy harsh ride. Thank again Tim andMichelle for a great time here at your little oasis, the proud Marina Terraces

Room Tip: Get the penthouse if you can, otherwise all the rooms are great!
