It's quite literally the closest you are going to get to town and the beach!
Its a 3 minute dawdle to Four Mile Beach (voted one of the to ten beaches in Australia by Trip Advisor) and the same distance to Macrossan Street (the High Street) and centre of Port Douglas (with shops, bars and restaurants).
You will have your own room with king size bed that consists of two mattresses attached together - so having a seamless top surface and a separate base. Ideal for couples who don't want to disturb the other one!. There is a small but adequate newly refurbished modern bathroom (shower, sink and toilet). The room leads out to a courtyard where there are a couple of armchairs and a coffee table where you can relax and soak up the tropical atmosphere. There is also your own small fridge, a microwave and a kettle in your room so you can store your own food and have a tea or coffee or heat up any food. The kitchen upstairs is available for you if you fancy cooking. This is not a guest area as such, as I also use the kitchen, so just to bear this in mind (before planning your 14 course dinner).
Being the closest point to the Barrier Reef there are many dive operations for those who want to dive. If you wish to ask me about any recommendations I would be pleased to help. All tours can pick you up from outside - best location to be picked up from is Peppers Beach Resort. The Marina for the boats to The Barrier Reef is only 5 minutes walk away.
It is a 10 minute drive to the Mossman Gorge - the start of the Daintree Rainforest,one of the oldest forests in the world and 1.5 hrs drive to Cape Tribulation, . There are a host of activities for people wanting to experience adventure on land and off land!
I am easy going and have lived and backpacked all around the world with a wide variety of room mates. I have lived in 8 countries in 10 years and have backpacked throughout Asia, India, Australia and Central America. It has been a great way of meeting a variety of people from different cultures and countries.
I am very easygoing, though draw the line at graffiti practice on the walls or added diced carrot stucco wall effect from the alcooholic overindulgence from the night before!
If you are arriving before 10am then I ask that you book from the day before. I have had occasions where if people are arriving early I cannot book the room out the night before.
Just to be advised that the hot water has to be turned on for use at the boiler heater. Due to a plumbing situation it is only possible to use the hot water continually for around 15 minutes, which should be enough for most people's uses.
I Look forward to meeting you!
Just to be considerate towards other people around you and that really isn't a rule that should be a way that people live their lives.
I am very much into just giving you a key so you can use the house as a second home.
Please be considerate about electricity. Turn off A/C/fans/lights when not in use or when you are going out.
You are welcome to use the laundry facilities - but if it is a sunny day, please dry laundry outside (rack provided). Using the Electric Dryer all day on a sunny day is such a waste of energy and also expensive. Also don't set it on two hour drying cycle when everything is dry after 30mins and you still have it running....... Thank you:)
If you break something, or something isn't working, please let me know so I can fix it for you.
I do have wifi - just ask for details when you arrive. Just to warn you that internet here is erratic and slow!
Rosie ist eine sehr herzliche, engagierte Gastgeberin, die die Bedürfnisse ihrer Gäste sehr gut kennt und für so gut wie alles eine Lösung bietet und einen Rat weiss.
Port Douglas: ein absoluter Traum.
Die Unterkunft liegt ideal nur wenige Meter vom Strand (Enclosure, Lifeguard) und den Restaurants entfernt.
The room is good size, has small fridge, toaster and kettle. Private bathroom and private outdoor sitting area is nice to have. Access to a pool is fantastic.
The room has a/c and fan - which is great as it was very hot in feb.
The location is very central, with restaurants and grocery stores near by. Also easy for early morning tour pick ups.
Rosie was kind enough to allow an early check-in, despite having guests the night before.
This location is perfect for an over-night stay in Port Douglas. Rosie is very helpful and accommodating. There was no one the following day and since we were going out on the reef, she generously let us keep the room for the day and check out after returning. The room is a bit small for two people which leaves you wondering where to hang your wet towels and keep open suitcases. The hot water is currently not working unless it is turned on in the garage but Rosie says it will be fixed. The bathroom is a wet one (small, with water showering out of the stall with no place in the bath room floor to drain). If you don't mind these small inconveniences, then this is a good spot.
Really nice place and great (email hidden)sie was very accommodating and friendly.
I really enjoyed my trip to Port Douglas, and staying at Rosie's place was great - it's less than 5mins walk to the main street where all the shops & restaurants are. Rosie was working when I first arrived, but made it easy for me to get into the flat & had left some helpful welcome info in my room so that I knew how everything worked. Later in my stay it was fun to get to know Rosie over a glass of wine, and she made me feel very welcome. The bedroom has it's own en suite bathroom, so it's like having your own self contained one-bed flat.
Rosie's place is beyond convenient to the beach and Macrossan St (the main st) also Port Douglas is amazing! The most Rosie and I saw each other was when I arrived, and we had a glass of wine and a nice chat. Our schedules had us missing each other the rest of my time there. I would definitely recommend and stay at Rosie's again should I find myself back in Port Douglas.
Das Zimmer war klein, aber ausreichend und alles vorhanden. Neues Bad und alles sauber.
Lage ist super, direkt am Four Mile Beach und auch nah am Zentrum .

I am a professional diver and have worked since 2002 all round the world - Thailand (Phi Phi), Honduras (Utila), Antigua, Grand Cayman, Malta, LA, Costa Rica. I have dived all over the world, but still have my 'wish list'.
I did work for a few years in Sydney back in my 'office' job in Marketing and New Product Development for Cosmetics.
I have my own artworks range (check out (website hidden)) and natural health products , Nature Says No (check out (email hidden)).
I am easy going and having backpacked round Asia and Central America, would say that I love meeting new people.
Life Motto: Grass is always Greener - just depends where you water it!
Very easy going with anybody staying - but draw the line at DIY Graffiti or the new stucco effect wall finish with diced carrots after too much alcohol from the night before!
