My husband and I stayed here on the last leg of our honeymoon, we stayed in a two bedroom appartment. The appartment was spacious, very clean, and well equiped. You have a choice for swimming; either the beach (which is 1 min walk away) or the lovely pool in the gardens. Carmel and John were fantastic hosts and were there to meet us on arrival, nothing seemed to much trouble for them and they made our stay all the more special. Both are very knowledgable on the hundreds of local trips, I would definitely recomend their advice. The location was excellent, the beach 50m away and the shops / restaurants the same the opposite way. We found this a very relaxing place with a lovely calm atmosphere; which is sometimes lacking in the bigger resorts. Port Douglas was simply one of the best ‘resorts’, its unspolit by the national chains and retains its own natural identity. We would have no hesitation in returnng one day.
