About this listing

This popular 2 bedroom ground floor apartment is just one block from the fabulous restaurants and shops of Macrossan Street, Four Mile Beach and the Marina. A fully self contained hideaway right on the doorstep to the Great Barrier reef, just for you

The space

This is a fully self contained 2 bedroom apartment, centrally located in the lovely village of Port Douglas, North Queensland. There is off street parking and a pool within the complex. The apartment is tastefully furnished and available with just a few days notice. It is in a small quiet block of 8, usually inhabited by locals. This is not a holiday resort but the apartment is very comfortable and very close to everything in the village.
Just a 3 minute walk to the beautiful 4 Mile Beach and a 5 minute stroll to the centre of the village. Port Douglas has great restaurants and shopping and a laid back cafe scene. The beach is fabulous and a good 4 mile walk in the mornings!!

Please note, this property meets all the legal requirements for commercial rental properties in the state of Queensland, Australia.

Guest access

Fully self contained apartment with private laundry facilities. A shared pool within the complex. Private designated off street parking. Free WIFI available in the apartment.

Interaction with guests

This is a privately owned holiday apartment, no corporate agents here. I live 'off site' but am available 24/7 via, phone, text, or email for any issues. I can be 'on site' if necessary, in as little as 30 minutes. I like to give guests their space and will only attend at the apartment during your stay if you need assistance with an issue. Personal service and the space to enjoy your holiday.

Other things to note

Although small children are welcome, no cot or highchair are provided in the apartment. A local baby hire company does provide these, delivered after arrival, if you need them. You can find their details online.

Julie's place was very well equipped with a washer and dryer and all the needs of an apartment. It was clean and organized well. Centrally located to most anything you wanted. A great city to visit. Wish we stayed longer. This was the best place on our trip so far. Julie made accommodations for us to get the key since we were later than had planned getting off the dive boat in Cairns. We would highly recommend her place and would return to it in a heartbeat!! Thanks, Julie. Linda

Julie and the Castaways was a fantastic experience. She is located a block away from all the restaurants and experiences. A short 5-10 min walk to the wharf / marina. 5 min to 4 Mile Beach and the patrolled area. She went above and beyond to secure airport transfers. The provided fruit, milk, tea, and wine was much appreciated. A tip: you can drive the Daintree yourself. Check with the Port Douglas Motel for car hire - good rates, good service, flexible hours, and clean cars. Would 100% recommend and stay with Julie if back in the area.

Awesome place to stay. Julie's place is very welcoming and lovely. I especially enjoyed finding the bottle of bubbly in the fridge as well as some snacks.

Well-furnished and well-maintained home, very clean, great location. Close to the shops and beach. Julie is helpful and responds promptly. Aircon in the living room only, preset at a fixed temperature without remote control. I found the beds too firm. Everything I needed for a comfortable stay were there: laundry detergent, pots and plates, microwave oven, fridge.

Response from Julie:
Thank you for your feedback Charlene. The large airconditioning unit, installed in the open plan living area, is more than enough to keep the apartment at a comfortably, cool temperature during the summer months. It is a modern top of the range unit that is preset at the manufacturers recommended temperature (22 C). The same setting as shopping centres and supermarkets. The aircon is preset to prevent guests from trying to achieve the impossible and that is to get a room down to 14 C in a tropical climate. It will never happen, it just causes an aircon unit to run continuously, inefficiently, with no result.....other than higher nightly room rates to cover the energy costs. The planet needs us all to be respectful of it's resources Charlene and if you find a remote in a room somewhere on your travels....leave the temperature as set and do the planet a favour.
