Fantastic location-5 mins to town and 2mins to the beach!
Apartment was exactly as described and was wonderful! Basics (and some goodies!) supplied and appreciated.
Contact with Julie was easy and prompt. We had absolutely no reason to contact her during our stay but knew she was just a text away.
Would not hesitate to stay here again- in fact we probably will next year. Thanks Julie !!!!
We loved out stay at Julie`s. We couldn't meet her due to our delayed flight , however were given detailed instructions about everything. Julie was really sweet and treated us with chocolates and Bubbly on our first day. The house is super clean and very close to all major attraction in Port Douglas. We will stay at Castaways again when we go back.
Thanks Julie !!

Avec nos plus beaux souvenirs
Excellent location, very close to the beach and Port Douglas' main street. Julie very kindly left some nice goodies in the fridge, very much appreciated. Having wifi in the appartement was great. A normal size sink in the bathroom would have made bathroom use more comfortable.
Julie was a very helpful host who gave us all the information about the apartment we needed, was flexible to our needs, and even provided us with fruit and a bottle of champagne upon arrival.
Our time in castaways four was lovely, it is a fantastic location and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to explore Port Douglas. Thanks Julie!
Although we never met Julie, she did everything she could pre-arrival to make it a very smooth process and she kept it contact throughout our stay.
The location was excellent and the apartment had a nice, homey feel and was very clean. The kitchen was well appointed with utensils and included some nice extras.
We were very comfortable during our stay and would recommend this place to anyone!
We really liked our stay in this cosy little apartment. It's location is perfect with all the main streets and shops within walking distance. The apartment was really clean, spotless as a matter of fact. Julie is the perfect host. Communication with her before we arrived was flawless. She met us when we arrived and gave us all the information we needed to make our stay in Port Douglas pleasant.
The parking space next to the apartment is in the shade which was nice. The guest book had nice tips about where to eat and which companies to use when going out to the reef.
