Richard was easy to work with and very conscientious. Harriet - who checked us in when we arrived

5 of 5
Richard was easy to work with and very conscientious. Harriet - who checked us in when we arrived was very thorough and helpful and easy to communicate with during the stay. The house is exactly as pictured. If anything was not in working order, it was looked into or repaired immediately (a circuit breaker was thrown and was needed to be reset on the pool when we arrived). Port Douglas is a small town of 4000 residents. It has a lovely little downtown which is very walk-able from the house. The pier where all the fishing and snorkeling boats leave is walk-able from the house. Calypso snorkeling boat was clean and the staff were very helpful and provided a very safe environment. The Norseman fishing boat was the same - safe, clean and helpful staff. The grocery store is located in downtown Port Douglas. We were there often and cooked at home many nights. The kitchen in the house is well stocked with utensils and food basics. There were plenty of luxurious bath towels and separate towels for the pool. There is a perfect variety of restaurants to choose from in Port Douglas. Nautilus is a particularly unique experience with great food for a special dinner. We were completely satisfied with our stay at 15 Wharf Street and highly recommend it.
