It has undercover parking. We provide an excellent insiders guide to Port Douglas. Linen and beach towels provided. Cot, stair gate, stroller and high chair available.
We have a four-night minimum because of high cleaning, pool and garden costs. Do not do an instant book for less than four nights. Send a message to the owner if you want less than four nights and we will negotiate.
Cancellation. We do not profit from cancellation and we try and do what is fair. If you cancel a month or more out we refund in full. If you cancel less than a month out we refund up to the full amount depending on whether we get a full or partial replacement booking, less whatever HomeAway takes in fees.
It is family friendly (cot and toddler gates available) with two bicycles which you can use (at your own risk). Or you can easily hire your own bicycles. There are several reputable hirers in Port Douglas. Port Douglas is a recreational cyclist's dream, with safe streets and beautiful shady cycle paths.
We provide a comprehensive guide on what to do, where to go, what you can do yourself, which reef trip operators are best for which sorts of people -- divers, snorkelers, kids, oldies, non-swimmers. The tour operators won't tell you!
