The Space

Set in beautiful ancient rain forest gardens, this privately owned well-equipped hotel style room in The Ramada Resort overlooks the lagoon style swimming pool. This first floor unit is air-conditioned, has a ceiling fan, plantation shutters, Flat screen TV, bar fridge, tea & coffee making facilities, toaster, hair dryer, shower over the bath, Iron & Ironing board.
Laundry facilities are available on the same floor. There's a king sized bed, and a sofa bed next to it we can make up to sleep extra. Plus a porta cot on request. WiFi is available (free in the pool area and on computers near Reception)
The Ramada Resort has a Day Spa and gym and the Tree Bar & Grill Restaurant is next to the pool and waterfall.

4 Mile beach is a short walk from the Resort and a shuttle bus (small fee) leaves every 20 minutes for Macrossan Street - the main part of town where there are great shops and Restaurants, and a Market Sunday morning.

Port Douglas, one hour North of Cairns along a beautiful coast road, is truly a Magical place where The Daintree Rain Forest and the Great Barrier Reef meet .The pristine Mossman Gorge is close by.

A place to relax and unwind with the natural beauty of two World Heritage listed areas to explore and enjoy.

Guest Access

All the facilities are available for your use.
The Ramada has free WiFi in the pool area, a gym (small fee), restaurant and swim up bar, lagoon style pool, areas for lounging. Computers in the huge foyer. Helpful Reception Staff will greet you, give you information and directions, gym card if required and help you book tours. Day spa onsite.

Interaction with Guests

We live 20 minutes away on the edge of the Tablelands, so will only come if you want to see us, or if you need anything. We don't usually get to meet our guests, except through email.

The Neighborhood

This part of the world is so beautiful, every day we feel blessed to live here. Even after work I can go to Port Douglas to shop, and instantly feel "on holidays" There's something about the ocean that does it . I go to Mossman Gorge whenever I can to be in the middle of the Daintree rain forest, its so restoring.

Getting around

Options for getting to the Ramada from Cairns Airport on the beautiful coast road are - car hire, Shuttle bus or our 1957 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud Limousine. There are many shuttle bus services online for around $44 per person. Sunpalm are slightly more, but have a desk at the Airport near the luggage carousel.
Once you're in Port Douglas you can hire bicycles from Reception, enjoy a walk (if you're keen) or catch the shuttle bus into town that comes by every 20 minutes or so for $5, $9 return or $25 for a 3 day pass.
Parking is included at the front and side of the Resort.

  • Wow! This was our first AirBNB experience and boy did we hit the jackpot. Roger & Wendy were amazing hosts that went well beyond the call of duty to ensure our stay was pleasant, comfortable and memorable. Your beautiful pool-view apartment was a wonderful home for our family and had all the things we required for our stay. We are already missing that beautiful King bed and the sensational shower. All the extra things like chocolates on our beds, breakfast provisions, maps with tips and procuring a cot and bedding for our son were incredibly generous and thoughtful. Wendy was very easy to correspond with and always willing to help. You have set the bar so high for future AirBNB experiences that we fear we will only be disappointed. Thank you so much from all of us. D, B, S & T McC

  • All contact I had with Wendy prior to my arrival was fantastic. Quick, relevant and friendly and gave me all the information I could possibly need.

    The room itself is fantastic. A lovely and comfortable kingsized bed, great dining area looking over the pool/restaurant, comfy lounge and enough appliances for making an easy breakfast or cup a soups if trying to stick to a budget.

    Wendy fills the unit with plenty of breakfast supplies as well as towels for both pool and shower/bath, so this makes travelling easy. She also left me some discount vouchers for both the restaurant and the spa which was appreciated.

    The shower is lovely and hot with great pressure, and it's really lovely to also have the bath to soak in after a long day.

    The resort itself is fantastic. About 4km out of town (easy walk on the beach, or get a shuttle bus - $9 per adult return or I got 3 day passes for $25); and beautifully designed. The pool is glorious (even in winter!) and I thoroughly recommend the restaurant and cocktails.

    Make sure you get yourself in for a treatment at the Treetops Spa (in the resort) - the Bodhi Tree package was a particular favourite.

    All in all, I loved my stay in Wendy and Roger's unit and would thoroughly recommend them to all my friends.

  • Thank you very much for a most enjoyable stay in Port Douglas. The room is spacious and has all the necessary items to make a stay comfortable. The location is also excellent, being a short walk to the beach and a short drive to the township of Port Douglas. Communication with Wendy is easy and helpful. I recommend this as an excellent option in Port Douglas.

  • Thank you very much for the warm welcome. Beautiful resort in an amazing part of the world. Everything we needed was provided. Perfect location to take in all the sights of Port Douglas and the surrounding areas.

  • Lovely stay: straightforward check-in, nice selection of breakfast supplies (unexpected, and so a big thank-you); nice big room overlooking the pool (WiFi worked for me in the room). Would certainly stay there again if in Port Douglas.

  • Very nice review in great hotel and terrific resort.
    Great food in the restaurant.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Roger and Wendy's resort room. Its location within the resort is excellent - right in the middle overlooking the swimming pool, gardens and restaurant - but quiet, too. The breakfast provisions were perfect for starting us off - in fact, so generous that they lasted the whole 3 days! The room is very well equipped and there is a laundry down the corridor. The resort, although quite an old one, is well maintained and very attractive with its central core of rainforest gardens. Only 5 minutes drive to Port Douglas itself - or a beautiful walk along fabulous 4 mile beach. Highly recommended.

  • Really nice room in a great resort. Awesome pool and breakfast buffet.
    Everything was provided such as towels and a really nice bed and the extras like beach towels, a fridge and milk and bread and cereal made the three days we spent there really good.
    Thank you

  • Roger and wendy were spectacular host/hostesses. The resort was beautiful and made you feel like you were out in the rainforest. The room was spotless and we REALLY appreciated the cereal, milk, juice and yummy rasian bread they provided for us. It really helped to have something to eat upon arrival, before you are able toget to the store. We also loved loved to coupon books provided for us. We would DEFINITELY stay with them again :) thank you for a wonderful experience roger and wendy!!!!!
