We had an amazing 5 night stay at Zen@Hibiscus over Christmas break. The apartment is perfect for discovering Port Douglas, Daintree, Cape Tribulation etc. It was really spacious, great cooking facilities, really good air con, lovely balcony, everything was awesome! The resort itself is in a great location and has two lovely pools for chilling out. Linda and Barry gave us great local tips for around the area and we would definitely recommend their place as a base for a trip to the Port Douglas area.
Linda & Barry's apt was lovely and had everything that we needed. Aircon & fans were a real plus as was so hot & humid. Enclosed car park was also a bonus as the car remained cool! We had a great time in the region and went out and about almost every day and enjoyed everything that we did - Cape Tribulation and the Daintree was brilliant and so was the sky rail and Kuranda train ride. We also loved Mosman Gorge. The apt being in Port Douglas was ideally located to all the trips and easy walking to both The Port and the Beach! We even went to the Cane Toad Racing evening, which was great fun as Sandy was picked to participate! Although we didn't meet Linda & Barry, our communication with them was excellent and received some great tips on what to do and where to go etc. (They even recommended the car hire place, that we used & booked, prior to arrival) Only negative and this is very small, is that the communal pool area does appear a bit tired (we still used it and enjoyed doing so) and could do with a face lift but this is down to the owners of the site and not L&B! Lovely time was had :-)
Linda and Barry's apartment is perfect!! My Husband and I were on our Honeymoon in Port Douglas and enjoyed the modern, well equipped apartment. The kitchenette has plenty of utensils to make breakfast's and salads etc for when you don't want to eat out. The bed is very comfortable, the apartment is perfectly located and within a few minutes walking distance to the shops, restaurants and beach. We had a hire car and their was always plenty of spaces available in the car park. Linda and Barry had sent us a wonderful information sheet on local places to eat and things to see and do. We especially loved Chilly's Pizza! We did not need to contact Linda and Barry for anything however it was made clear that if we needed help with anything then we could call at anytime!! We had a wonderful stay in Port Douglas and would definitely return to stay at ZEN @ Hibiscus.
Thanks Linda and Barry for letting me stay in your beautiful, tropical home away from home. The unit was lovely and clean, the pools wonderful, the internet access was fast and reliable and the location is perfect.
I enjoyed my stay and would recommend Zen @ Hibiscus to friends and family.
We had a great stay and really enjoyed the comforts of this charming apartment. And, yes, the location was terrific: far enough from the main street to be quiet but close enough to be able to walk everywhere in town. We spent time every day at the pool and floated on the pool in the bean bag-like pillows, reading and staying cool. The kitchen had everything we needed. The only thing missing for us was wifi which we knew wasn't offered so we got a Telstra 4G Dongle to use while we there. We really enjoyed our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. One further note: we did see our friends' rental apartment which we thought was not anywhere near as nice and for considerably more money.
We really enjoyed staying at Linda and Barry's Zen @ Hibiscus; the location was great, easy walking distance to everywhere, including great coffee just up the road. Linda and Barry's communication was great, with tons of tips about where to eat, etc. The food at the surf club was surprisingly good, and we also managed the recommended ribs at the pub!
Great place, we highly recommend Zen
Well we don't know where to begin. Linda and Barry's place was absolutely perfect. We were beyond thrilled with the accommodation. The room was beautifully clean, well lit, and had everything we could have asked for. We immediately felt comfortable and at home. What an experience. The resort as a whole was also far beyond our expectations. It, too, was clean and the hospitality was wonderful. We honestly cannot say enough good things about our stay at Hibiscus and I'm sure that if we could, nothing we could say would do it justice.
As for Linda and Barry as hosts, they were absolutely fantastic. Unfortunately we didn't have the pleasure of meeting them, but we were in constant contact with them. They were prompt in responding to our many inquiries and, when they did respond, they gave us more information than we asked for. They gave valuable information about the local things to see and do, most of which we did and loved.
We cannot say enough positive things about Linda and Barry as well as their accommodation. We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to travel to Port Douglas. Thank you so much, Linda and Barry. We can't wait to come back.
