Situated just a short stroll form the beach, Watermark 3 is located along Langley Road. The Four Mile Beach shops are a 10 minute walk away and the heart of Port Douglas, Macrossan Street is just a short drive away. Watermark is a perfect base for day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, the world heritage Daintree Rainforest and Cape Tribulation and all of the activities that the area has to offer.
Fantastic stay, good size for 6 adults and the coffee at check in was a nice touch. Great location next to 4 mile beach and the beach shack was a lovely beach side cafe/ restaurant with some cool characters and vibes!
Thank you Wendy, Hans and team for a stress-free and well organised holiday (website hidden) location was great and the house was spotless and clean and very well furnished. Staff are always a phone call away and are quick to respond to any small issues or questions about sightseeing. We were very impressed by how efficiently everything was attended to and would definitely book here again.
Watermark 3 was absolutely lovely and Wendy and her staff could not have been more helpful - and what a great location! 4 Mile Beach is absolutely gorgeous and just a short walk from the unit. This is a great beach for walking, riding bikes, running and just sunning. It also turned out to be a premier location for kite boarding, which was a huge bonus for my son who took advantage by taking lessons in the midst of tons of experienced and friendly kite boarders - and he could walk there himself.
Another bonus was proximity to The Beach Shack - a great, casual restaurant with sand floors, wonderful, fresh seafood and other selections and friendly atmosphere. It's also just a short walk from the unit down the street and across a paved lane marked as "The Path" which went over a bridge and through the woods. We were surprised to find it by chance the first night we arrived (by following walking directions on our phone GPS), but went back several times after that.
Watermark 3 was also an easy location for shuttle pick ups to the Reef Marina, where boats leave from for snorkeling and diving on the Great Barrier Reef, as well as shopping, cafes and restaurants. We were picked up and dropped off at Oaks Lagoon Hotel right at the corner of Langley and Port Douglas Roads.
The IGA grocery store is a very short drive away, as well as the absolutely wonderful Wildlife Habitat, a refuge for all kinds of indigenous animals you can see up close and in their natural habitats. We also toured the Daintree Rainforest, which is within an hour's drive. And Port Douglas is an absolutely picturesque, quaint beach town with lovely restaurants, stores and people.
The unit itself is very well laid out with comfortable bedrooms, beautiful balconies and huge doors that open onto the pool area where the grill is also located. The beds and bedding were comfortable and the kitchen pretty well equipped.
It may have just been the time of year but mosquitoes were a bit of an issue, making the pool area virtually unusable since it is a bit shady there. Screening on the large doors would have been a wonderful addition so that we could have enjoyed the breezes on the ground floor as well as in the bedrooms without the mosquitoes and flies coming inside.
Any minor issue or question we had was quickly addressed or answered by Wendy and Heather, her assistant, making our trip very relaxing and enjoyable - they helped us with references to activity and excursion organizers ahead of our trip as well. We would stay at Watermark again, or in any other unit managed by Wendy and her staff, without hesitation.
Thank you very much for your lovely email. We are so pleased that you enjoyed the Villa and your stay in Port Douglas. At certain times, the mozzies can be an issue. We do have means to get rid of them so wish we had known and could have helped you out. Anyway, sounds like you had a lovely trip regardless.
Hope to meet you again one day.

Very close to beach, pool a little shady if you are after sun but everything fairly clean and easy to use
A group of 5 of us stayed for a week. There was plenty of room for everyone (3br, 2 bath), and the place was clean, neat, bright, and modern. We were awakened every morning by a lovely chorus of neighborhood birdsong. The flat is located about 2 minutes on foot from one end of 4-mile beach, and about 6 minutes by car from Port Douglas's main street. We did a lot of our own cooking, and had plenty of plates, cutlery, cooking utensils, a barbecue, etc.--my only cavil in this regard would be to request a knife sharpener.
There are actually 3 or 4 people in Wendy's "organization"--in other words, this is a company that represents multiple properties. They are not hiding this aspect, and everyone I spoke to was friendly and polite, including Hans, who was the person that actually greeted us on arrival. But this is not the place to choose if you are looking for a personal connection to the host.
We were a family of six adults that stayed at Watermark 3 for five nights. We were met at the house promptly, given the keys and shown around the house. The house and location were truly amazing. The kitchen was completely arranged with all of the amenities that a family would need. The beach was only a five minute walk from the house and
Port Douglas, the rainforest, and marina were just a short drive
from the house. We all agreed that we would stay at Watermark 3 again in the future.
