Rated 5 out of 5 by from "A fantastic property in an excellent and convenient location close to all the amenities and beach in Port Douglas. We stayed for 14 nights over christmas with our 2 year old son and truly had a wonderful time. This house has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting self contained accommodation in Port Douglas." Use of the pool was a much needed bonus and Tina was a wonderful host. Many thanks and we hope we get back there soon.
