My husband and I had a lovely time in this apartment. Beautiful oasis setting, close to the beach and restaurants. Thanks to Karen for adding a special touch of bubbly on our arrival to celebrate our anniversary!
Perfect place to stay for a Port Douglas getaway. Lovely accommodations, that are within walking distance to beach, shops and cafes. It was our little oasis from the heat. We would definitely stay here again!
Karen's place was beautiful! So relaxing and with a beautiful pool that we could relax in. The unit is very calm and relaxed, clean and lovely! Very close to the beach and lots of shops and resturants. Karen was very helpful and easily contactable. I only wish we could have stayed longer.
Karen was extremely helpful both before our trip and on arrival. The apartment was ideal, very clean and exactly as described. Karen met us to check in and gave us some excellent recommendations for local bars, restaurants and attractions. All in all a great host - thanks Karen!
Karen Smith-Marron made us feel so welcome weeks before our arrival! She was available to answer our many questions, and helpful with suggestions that made our stay an incredible experience. I cannot recommend Karen highly enough - she was amazing!
Great communication re check in and things to do in cairns.
Accommodation was perfect for us, very clean, easy to find, 3 good sized bedrooms all with ensuite, air con and fans in each room, great laundry and kitchen.
Swimming pool was lovely. Outside areas were well kept.
Overall we were very happy with our accommodation, we are a family of 4, with 3yo twins. Safety gates for the stairs were provided.
Jeremy met us with the keys and gave us a very enthusiastic brief on many different things to do in and around the area. Very useful.
Thanks for a great stay!
The apartment is great. Its a large 2 bedroom apartment - with lots of natural lighting and a lovely balcony that overlooks the pool area. The apartment is spacious and the two bedroom/two bathroom is great for families. The apartment is in a good location across the road from the beach and very close to Macrossan St. The photos that have been posted are accurate. The apartment is on the third floor - which was not an issue for us but could be for someone quite elderly. Once the pool and decking are revamped, I am sure that the apartment complex will be even better !
We stayed 6 nights at this house with 3 couples and kids. It was fantastic. The pictures don't do it justice - there is far more space than the pictures give credit for.
The main bathroom is absolutley HUGE with a great spa and large shower. The bedrooms are generous, and the kitchen is also HUGE, with really good appliances. We loved how the cupboards were stocked and laid out. The fridge also had an ice maker, which helped with our cocktails and drinks! We also liked the fact it was in a gated community with beautiful gardens.
We loved the layout of the pool and how it wrapped around the dining area. We spent most of our time in the alfresco area, with the large table and outdoor furniture. If I could be a little picky, it would be good to have outdoor speakers and docking station for music. We had a portable speaker which may be a good idea if you like music while relaxing by the pool. Otherwise we were VERY happy with this accommodation, and highly recommend it.
Plunge Pool Oasis is a spacious condo in a quiet neighbourhood, about a 10-15 minute walk to the southern end of Four Mile Beach and a 10 minute drive into town. We loved Port Douglas, especially the northern section of Four Mile Beach near the Surf Club where we could rent loungers and umbrellas.
Karen welcomed us at the gate when we arrived via BTS shuttle bus from Cairns Airport (These guys were great also, get them to drop you off at Paradise Links Resort as it is across the road). She showed us around the place and gave us some hot tips on local restaurants and how to get the local bus. She was very flexible with check in and out times. The place was awesome, it was very spacious and fit the 5 of us very comfortable. Each room has it's own en-suite also which was great. The outdoor area and pool were amazing too. The location is great, with only a 10min walk to the beach and 5 min drive to the main strip of Port Douglas. Thanks heaps Karen. We will definitely be recommending this place to anyone heading up to Port Douglas!
