Have stayed here before and will keep coming back due to its location and the spacious apartments that are very well maintained. Walk across the road to the beach. Macrossan shops and restaurants are a short stroll away. Owners are very pleasant and helpful if you need anything.

Great location near the beach with some apartments getting ocean/beach views. Walk to just about everything from here; shops, restaurants, beach, marina, parks, Sunday market. Apartments really large with all mod cons and just about everything you could possibly need. Spotlessly clean and well maintained.Very well managed and very helpful.

I chose these apartments after reading Trip Advisor reviews and they did not disappoint. The location is fantastic. Close to the beach and an easy stroll around the corner to town. We were having a family reunion and I emailed in advance to ask if we could possibly have apartments near each other. The hosts kindly obliged and we stayed...

Balboa Apartments are amazing. Our hosts for our week long stay were super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect as it is 50m from the beach and right on the Main Street of Port Douglas, with easy walking distance to everything. We stayed in apartment number 5, a family 3 bedroom. The living area is huge. The apartment is...

The rooms were very spacious - the pool and spa was super warm and the place was very clean. Less than 100 metres to walk to four mile beach and Some of the apartments face Macrossan street. The hosts were lovely.
