These apartments are in a great location on the end of Macrossan St close to the beach about a 1km walk to the other end of Macrossan St. The quality of the apartments can vary widely due to each apartment having different owners. Some are quite dated and could do with a refresh, others have been refreshed. The tour desk...

A huge disappointment. Arrived to find a small 2bed apartment in need of a refurbishment. Kitchen cupboards are old and drawers held together by old glue and old food in cutlery drawer that falls out each time you open it past a few inches. The one very small bathroom houses a washer and dryer and very old shower fittings that...

I rented out two apartments for myself and 7 others which worked out to be really cheap. It was during the off-season and it was a special but the price still gets me. The apartments were absolutely stunning. Very nice sized, full kitchen and lounge with plenty of DVDs, books, and magazines. A spa in the main bathroom and the...

I stayed for 5 nights at these self contained apartments with a great balcony overlooking the pool and Macrossan st. They are in a great location down the end of the main strip and a minute away from the warm waters of Port Douglas beach. On arrival, the apartment was neat and tidy, it was a great size, comfortable and...

My wife and I spent a week at the Driftwood Mantaray, Port Douglas. Location is great with just a short stroll to get to cafes, restaurants and shops. The property is certainly feeling it's age with dated fittings and furniture, maintenance work needed to fix torn flyscreens a broken chair and a few essential kitchen items missing such as oven...

We rented a two bedroom unit which was located about a 4 minute walk to four mile beach and the protected 'swim section'. It is important that you only swim in the netted area to avoid being eaten by giant reptiles or being stung to death by the near invisible Box Jellyfish. The unit was a bit dated and a...

First trip to Port Douglas with the kids in tow. Great location within walking distance to the Main Street of Port Douglas yet a quiet location with very little noise. We had two small pools to choose from and BBQ facilities. The apartments are spacious but a little outdated. A little like stepping back into Miami Vice! The apartments did...
