We stayed at Jade Ridge for 4 nights in December and what a place. The views are amazing across the fields to the ocean, it is completely private, the open plan veranda and living room are ideal for relaxing and enjoying the weather and vista. The pool was an added bonus and being only 10mins by car from Port Douglas provided a great base to explore the area. Can not recommend highly enough.
Townhouse is the first of 8 in the complex, each with own garage and utility room.
This one is the only one with direct pool access from the private courtyard and balcony overlooking pool area. We spent 10 nights here with our two teenagers and the layout is perfect with main bedroom downstairs and second room (kids) was upstairs. Kids room had double bed so they had to share the space. Not a problem for us but may be for others so consider this before booking. Also a stair barrier is fitted at top of staircase to use if staying with young children or in my case, clumsy teenage children. Bathroom/toilet on both levels however basin in ensuite to main bedroom is half size and washing face without mess was a little tricky. Perfect for basics ie., washing hands, brushing teeth etc. A few things needed addressing whilst our stay here including, initial cleanliness, leaking warm fridges, and broken washing machine, however, communication with the owner Jeff was quick and problems rectified without a problem.
* A quick note on the fridges. There are two bar size fridges in this property, one in the kitchen and one in the utility room in the carport/garage. If you plan to do most of your cooking or buy lots of food during your stay (ie. fresh fruit, veges and dairies), then storage may be a problem. We used and bought often to remedy this and kept most food items in the house fridge. Drinks, icypoles were kept in the outside fridge.
Awesome verandas both sides of upstairs level with drying racks for wet clothes, as well as ample seating and tables for balmy tropical dinners and brekkies. It's perfect!
Communal pool shared amongst all residents though only one other local joined us for the occasional dip throughout our stay.
Few minutes walk to Four Mile Beach, surf club bistro and five minutes walk to main shopping strip with abundant bistros, cafes and restaurants.
Overall a great and comfortable affordable, spacious townhouse for four people with all the amenities required, perfect location, without the crowds of a resort and expensive price tag. Will definitely stay again :)
