Port Douglas Mowbray
Was great location, close to beach and main street. Beds are too hard by far, cleanliness was ok but I believe it was more to do with the age of the apartment. Needs refresh. Reception and Management were lovely and helpful.

Great apartment for our group, 2 bedrooms both with ensuite. A little on the older side, but very spacious, tidy and comfortable for our short stay. Great location and convenient to town and beach. Free off street parking is also a great bonus!

Clean & Spacious
Very clean & spacious 2BR apartment that was close to the waterfront & to restaurants/cafes. We had a ground floor apartment which was great, but if you have a lot of luggage then maybe request this or else you will have stairs to conquer. Reception staff were very friendly & communicated well, & even offered to help with luggage etc. I would book again next time in Port Douglas

Marcus made it a really easy check in process and was extremely accommodating for us. Fantastic for both a short or long stay especially with a group of friends. Location is close enough to walk to the main street, but far enough to be peaceful and quiet.
