This place was perfect for our toddler, the reception had toys free to use and she was extremely happy with the selection of balls to play with. The room was bright and airy, clean and very comfortable. Staff were all so friendly and happy. Great location, fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean and walking distance to great coffee. Perfect for a family holiday.

I would stay again in a heartbeat. Perfect location to forget about a car, next to the patrolled beach and so close to all the restaurants. The staff are so accomodating and everything is provided for, even a shopping trolley to walk to the supermarket, beach towels, deck chairs and boogie boards. The apartment was so clean and loads of linen provided for a comfortable family holiday. The best location in Port Douglas.

Quiet location
Quiet location on the main street of Port Douglas and a minute walk to the beach. Stayed in a Cute Cosy room for 3 nights which was perfect for the 2 of us. Courtyard looking out to the rainforest. Girls at reception are very helpful. Will definitely stay here again when in Port Douglas.
