“Gorgeous apartment, great hosts, but not the place if you want peace and quiet!”

This is the first apartment I have ever rented where the space actually looked like the photograph. We rented the 2-bed apartment which incorporates the hotel room into the 1-bed apartment so we had a very comfortable week with our 5-year-old son in his own bedroom. The verandah was a lovely addition that really increased the living space and although it looked out onto the back of a very busy bar/restaurant it didn't feel exposed because of the lovely palm trees in between.

It was certainly not quiet at night - the bar was obviously a popular one - but the music was not thumping and unpleasant so it didn't bother us at all.

The location was excellent, just across the road from the Sunday market (highly recommended for tourist tat) and in the middle of the lively pubs and restaurants and only 15minutes walk to the lovely 4-mile beach.

The pool was nice. The apartment was excellently equipped with a nice little kitchen area, washer and tumle dryer, and 3 TVs!

And our hosts Phil & Lisa and their agent Michelle were lovely. On the first day we found the aircon wasn't working and Michelle was there and had it fixed within 2 hours. I was so impressed.

The area had so much to do. We would recommend hiring a car and driving yourself to the Skyrail (the train was not so exciting); Hartleys Crocodile farm, and the Port Douglas Wildlife experience. All excellent for small children. The Reef Sprinter was brilliant - the fast boat trip as much fun as the snorkelling - and we also did a helicopter flight which was incredible.

We can recommend the surf club for a lovely fish and chips and the place under the global backpackers for excellent pizza.

Thank you Cecile, It was great to have you all and yes it is a great apartment & location with everything you need as you found, especially the fabulous Sunday Market just across the road, and I am sure the weather was a big change from your hometown in the UK.

The apartment has a cosmopolitan feel and we love the bi-bold doors which we open up ourselves during the day to soak up the Port Douglas atmosphere and close up in the evening as they have been designed to give total sound proofing if required.

The guy Pete who plays the guitar is very good while you're having a meal most guests are sorry he finishes early when the meals do.

I'm pleased Michelle was the perfect host for you and was there when required as we as owners and you as guests would expect. We want guests to have the best experience possible with us as you did.

As a small family business we make sure guests are welcomed with personal touches that make you feel at home & try to go the extra mile..Anything near or in the village location will have the same atmosphere you experienced which is part of Port Douglas, for total peace you need to look outside Port, but then need a car.
The large balcony is certainly a plus Cecile i agree :o)
Again thanks for being our guests and thank you for the honest feed back, thanks for appreciating our lovely 2 Bdr apartment and pleased you enjoyed your time from the UK.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feed back..
Warmest regards
Phil,Lisa & Michelle.

Thank you so much Jill, We love what we do and perfect guests like yourself make it all worth while.
Michelle is a great host and loves what she does and Lisa and myself feel its worth having someone to greet you on arrival instead of just leaving keys on a bench which is so inpersonal as so many owners do.
Guests like yourself are so important to us, we enjoy offering a service that we would expect ourselves which is why we go the extra mile.
Understanding booking on line can be daunting so we try to put ourselves in the guests position.
Jill again thanks for recognizing our efforts and thanks for being the perfect guests & would love to have you again.
Warm Regards till your next PD holiday.
Phil,Lisa & Michelle
