Pre-Arrival Shopping Service
We know what its like to come half way around the world, and / or with small children in tow, and arrive at your destination tired and unfamiliar with the local shopping and restaurants. All you want to do is to get fed and get settled (and / or to bed).
Therefore we offer a shopping service so when you arrive you will have all the supplies and fresh ingredients you pre-ordered, ready to cook a quick meal, have a few drinks and nibbles and / or be ready for breakfast the next morning without having to worry about running to the shops or restaurants.
We are fussy about quality and value and know the best places to shop. We charge a nominal fixed fee, plus the cost of the supplies, for this service.
Set on a very private and spacious property in a quiet, safe cul-de-sac encompassing extensive lawns and tropical gardens, Beachside is just a 1 minute walk to the sands of Four Mile Beach and less than 5 minutes drive (or local bus) from the village centre and boating marina.
Also close by (within 10 minutes walk) are 2 championship golf courses, various casual and fine dining restaurants, The Habitat Wildlife Sanctuary and two local shopping complexes (including a supermarket, chemist, medical centre, dentist, video hire, cafes, liquor stores and dine-in and take away food outlets).

The accommodation was wonderful. There was no detail overlooked even down to a bowl of fruit when we arrived and toys for a toddler to play with.There were six of us plus a toddler, all in comfortable bedrooms and the granny flat with room for more if needed.The gardens were beautiful and it was so quite you didn't know you were in a suburban area.It is very convenient to the center of town and the beach was a short stroll away. I will stay there again when we go to Port Douglas and can personally recommend it.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.

Beachside was one of the best places our family has stayed at. We had 8 adults and 3 children found that everything you could possibly need was supplied. Christine was extremely helpful with advice about Port Douglas, etc which contributed immensely to our family's enjoyment of the area. Beachside is just a short stroll to the beach which our little ones really enjoyed. It is also very close to Port Douglas centre and not very far to all the great places to visit. We would like to thank Christine for providing such a great place to stay.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
This was a great property for a large family group. Everything we needed was on hand, and with a great pool and the beach so close, was an ideal house for our holiday.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.

Fantastic stay. Home away from home. Peaceful location, beautiful garden, great house with every thing you could ask for, very short walk to amazing beach and play ground for kids and short drive to shops. Everything we wanted in a getaway. Spent a lot of time on the patio relaxing and enjoying the surounds. Enjoyed the heated pool could not keep the kids out of. Thanks so much, will recommend to others and hope to come back again.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
Our family of 7, including an 81 year old, stayed at this wonderful property whilst in Port Douglas for a family wedding recently. 'Beachside' was absolutely perfect for us. The house is in a great location, a very short walk to Four Mile Beach and a short drive to Macrossan Street. The well maintained property consists of 3 bedrooms in the main house, one with ensuite plus a family bathroom, large kitchen and living area and a great pool area and patio complete with barbie. There is also a two bedroom self-contained granny flat (perfect for our 22 and 20 year old) and another shower/toilet adjoining the granny flat. We wanted for nothing. The house was so well equipped including wi-fi, coffee machine, 2 fridges, Austar and air-con. Christine met us on arrival and gave us a brief orientation and then left us to enjoy our family get together. I can happily recommend Beachside.0 people found this review to be helpful. 0 people found this review to not be helpful.
