Our contact with Sue started early on helpfully answering our questions. She and Daryl very kindly showed us around Port Douglas the evening before we moved into their comfy flat. This was a great help in getting us orientated. We also met for coffee one evening and found many interests in common.
The flat had everything needed including a small oven as we like to cook rather than eating out. We just wished we'd had more days to spend in Port Douglas then we would have enjoyed the flat longer. There were several unexpected extras such as towels for swimming, a plate of fruit, tea, coffee and milk and washing powder. Toys were also seen in the cupboard, not that we needed them. But lots of books and magazines were useful. It was great having a fan on the balcony making sitting and eating outside very comfortable. Generally we didn't need the Air conditioning much as the fans were adequate.
The location was excellent with just a short walk to the main street and beach, not that we swam there as we used the pool every day. We think we made the most of our stay taking day trips out to the Barrier Reef, Daintree rain forest and the Sky Rail and scenic rain to and from Karunda.
Port Douglas is a lovely resort with a great atmosphere and unspoilt by the large number of tourists it hosts.
We were made to feel very welcome by Susan in her apartment. Susan kept in regular contact via email over the week we stayed, and answered all my enquiries quickly and without fuss. Extra items like tim tams, fresh fruit, tea and milk were left for us. She also left toys for my two year old to play with plus beach toys. Useful items like beach towels and glad wrap were included too, which was so handy! The apartment was clean and very comfortable and we instantly felt at home. The apartment looks over the pool which is nice at night as it is lit up. You won't regret staying here!
This apartment was everything that we could hope for. It is a beautiful apartment in an ideal location with easy parking in the basement.The balcony looks out onto the swimming pool and BBQ area which are set in well maintained semi tropical gardens.
The apartment itself is spacious, very well maintained and has everything that is needed for self catering. The fridge / freezer is large and the cooking equipment and facilities are of a very high standard. There is a shared laundry room in the basement which has washers and dryers available at a modest cost.
Susan is a lovely host and very helpful. She kindly left a few useful items in the apartment to make our arrival and settling in a little easier.
Port Douglas is about 70 minutes drive from Cairns. It is much smaller and quieter than Cairns but it has good restaurants and parks and is well situated for visiting the rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef as well as a number of other attractions.
If we are ever in Port Douglas again, which is very likely, we will try to book this apartment again. We spent five terrific days at Apartment 11, Reef Club, Port Douglas
It is great to stay in Susan place. The pool is clean and big. Susan is nice and warm to meet. The place is close to the beach and shops, cafe and restaurant.
Only positive comments to leave about the apartment and Susan herself. The space is extremely clean, quiet, in close walking distance to town and even closer to the beach, and has everything needed should you want to prepare meals at home.
Susan was a lovely host - incredibly thoughtful, considerate and helpful.
The only negative was totally out of anyone's control - a cyclone!
Can definitely recommend.
We had an amazing stay at Susan's oasis. She was in perfect communication months before we arrived and ended up meeting us in Cairns to give us the keys. Thus was the perfect set up, as both bedrooms connect to the bathroom. The place was super clean and 3 out of the 4 nights we had the pool to ourselves. The extra touch of fruit and Tim tams was the perfect welcoming gift. It was one of the few places I've stayed that far exceeded above what the pixs show. She provides every thing for you to have a worry free vacation. I would 100% recommend this place to stay.
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.
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.
