We have just spent 5 nights in this fabulous apartment. You felt in holiday mode as soon as you stepped inside the door. The style of the apartment put you in tropical paradise. Sitting on the balcony having a cold beer and listening to the live music across the road and watching the palms swaying and clouds rolling in over the ocean - doesn't get much better than that. Thanks to Caroline who at every stage was so welcoming and bubbly, and was helpful when advising where to go and what to do. A warm and natural lady - thanks Caroline. Theres some thing about Port Douglas that keeps calling you back - Can't think of a better place to stay, we WILL BE BACK.

We had a very relaxing stay in January. Loved the property, location and privacy of the villa. There were four adults staying and the property afforded us all space and privacy. I am pretty fussy and there was nothing to fault. I appreciated quality appliances, good china, bedding, and incidentals. Definitely stay again. A big thank you to Di for putting in place a solution for a technical issue that was out of everyone’s control....but much appreciated.
