Thank you so much for a wonderful break. Having travelled for more than 24 hours with 3 children under 6 from the UK, I could not have imagined a better welcome than the fantastic Azure beach house on Newell Beach. Less than 30 yards from the coconut palmed beach at the end of the garden, with a lovely shaded and safely fenced swimming pool, this modern house is open plan, and with wide sliding doors making it nice and airy, with three spacious bedrooms off the centre. The kitchen is well equipped, and with internet access and satellite television, we were wanting for nothing. The separate games room with its own satellite TV and double bed was an ideal space for our au-pair. We leave with the sound of the ocean in our ears, and great memories, especially the barbie on the beach fire. Hopefully, we will come back one (website hidden)

We had a really good time at Newell beach. Wendy was so nice to us and welcomed us at the house. The location was just beautiful. We have had chance to see dolphins jumping at the beach. Thank you so much and we definitely recommend Wendy as host and the beautiful beach house.
Paradise on absolute beachfront (Azzure on Newell Beach) is one of those homes that look pretty in the pictures, but had some things to be desired. Wendy was nice enough to welcome us at the property and even suggested fun activities - we were thankful for her greeting! Right off the get go, before we entered the home as we were talking with Wendy, I noticed a long trail of ants spanning the entire length of the home. When I pointed it out to Wendy she let us know there should be a can of spray in the house. Ok, no biggie! I understand it's near the rainforest so bugs are expected. We only found two bait traps which killed a few hundred ants near the door frames and around the perimeter of the guest bedroom (two twin beds) where our daughters were to sleep (we ended up moving both beds into the area next to the master bed due to the amount of ants). We let Wendy know we found ants in the entire house. In the guest room, our bathroom (which already had a corner of dead ants from before we got there), to the master bedroom, and the kitchen. We asked if there was more she could do. Wendy sent a professional to spray the house inside and out. We of course had to evacuate for a few hours because of the fumes. When we returned the house smelled so intensely of gas/chemicals we couldn't stay in the house for a few more hours. The chemicals killed the ants, but for the next 4 days I vacuumed ants that continued to come (or the ants that continued dieing) just so we wouldn't walk on them and track them into our beds. Not really my idea of a relaxing vacation. Aside from the ants, which is possible it could be an isolated incidence, the house could have been cleaned better. The furniture was dirty and some of the dishes weren't cleaned well when we arrived.
The location of the house relative to the beach was wonderful. The pool was nice. Again the furniture could use a bit of attention. There was no hammock on the beach like the picture suggested, but again, the beach was lovely. The kitchen was supplied with essentials. The refrigerator had rust on it, I suspect from humidity. The house did have adequate screens to be able to have the doors open with fresh air going through the house. The pool table out back was warped badly, but the kids played anyway. We loved using the canoes out on the open ocean especially early in the day. Spending our time outside on the beach, at Port Douglas and snorkeling made it a memorable experience. I just think the house could use some TLC, especially for an advertised "Executive Retreat."
Amelia so sorry this was your experience . This was definitely an isolated incident we dealt with , sending a professional to get rid of ants has not been done before.. I think you should have stayed away longer and I did suggest you should not leave your mother in law at home.
The hammock was brought to the pool area but the clips meant it could also go the the coconut trees at the beach .
We have many happy guests stay at this popular house which is half the rate of the house next door which is also gorgeous . Guests moved into the house the day you left and have no ants. I do apologize for the ants and am sincerely sorry
