A clean, spacious two bedroom apartment facing the pool in a nice resort complex . The apartment is five minutes from the beach and a ten minute walk from the main street of Port Douglas. Susan and her husband gave us a much-appreciated mini-tour of the town on arrival. A great pace to stay, and the travel agent in the resort can arrange tours to the reef and rainforest.
Susan and Daryl were amazing hosts! Daryl came to meet us at the airport to make sure we got the keys for the apartment. We were greeted by fruits and Tim Tams when we arrived. The Reef Club has all the amenities we need including a spacious pool with spa, a BBQ and outdoor dining area, and easy access to the beach. The only downside is there is no wifi, but you can access wifi in the main area of town, which is only a 15 minutes walk away. The apartment itself is clean and includes everything we need for a comfortable stay including towels, beach towels, swimming noodles, kitchen utensils etc. We couldn't have asked for a better accommodation. We really enjoyed our trip, especially when the weather turned out to be much better than forecasted. Thank you so much for our stay!
It was a pleasure staying at Susan and Daryl's apartment.
The location is convenient, really close to the centre.
The apartment itself is perfect. It is clean and there is everything you need: linen, towel, kitchen appliances, beach towel and even kids game!
More than anything, the warmth welcoming from our host make us feel at home as soon as we pushed the door. A special mention for the fruits plater and Timtam welcoming set!
We would highly recommend staying at Susan and Daryl's place.
We had a great stay at Susan's apartment. It is located in a quiet resort and only a short walk from the stinger-net protected Four Mile Beach. It is also not far from the main street where all the stores and restaurants are.
Daryl waited patiently for us to arrive from Cairns airport and showed us around the apartment, which was clean and well equipped, with ceiling fans and a/c units in all rooms.
I would definitely recommend it.
Thank you so much Susan and Daryl! We loved Port Douglas and loved staying at your flat. It was everything we hoped it would be. Your generosity was amazing!
The apartment is small and was perfect for our family of three. It is really a very short walk from the beach (if you go for the sunrise wear bug spray!! We got eaten alive by sand flies). It is also a nice short walk to town. One tip we didn't learn until the last night is that you can buy short intervals of internet (30 minutes and 1 hour) for a couple dollars from the counter downstairs - which was nice for just a quick FaceTime call home if you don't want to walk into town or buy the expensive month program.
The pool is very nice and Susan and Daryl have pool toys, beach toys and beach towels in the flat. They also, so kindly provided us with some extra toys for our toddler who liked that almost as much as the beach! They also generously got us some beautiful fruit and tim tams (miss them so much can't get them in the states!) and some milk for the baby. We absolutely loved going out to the GBR on the Quicksilver and greatly appreciated you arranging our tickets - please thank Caroline.
We would stay there again in a heartbeat if we are ever back in AUS. Thank you again!
Susan and Daryl were superb hosts. They met us at the apartment and then drove us around Port Douglas to show us the location of shops, supermarkets and restaurants. The apartment was delightful: beautifully equipped in an excellent location.
Had a great stay in Port Douglas, apartment is in a great location within a small but friendly complex with brill pool and bbq area, highly recommend it.
I was born in Bendigo, in central Victoria, Australia, where my family owned a winery. Since then I have moved to Port Douglas, with my husband, Daryl, and it is paradise. We enjoy relaxing on Four Mile beach (surely one of the best beaches in Australia) and also we partake in Port's fabulous restaurants and cafes. We also enjoy travelling around the region, especially the Tablelands which is very different to Port and makes for an interesting contrast.
