Self Contained One Bedroom Apartment close to Beach
About Phil Hopper
We moved to Port Douglas from Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. We love Port Douglas and Far North Queensland. We want visitors to this beautiful part of Australia to slow down and enjoy themselves. We think we must be doing something right because a handful of our guests have also bought property in this region. To us, this place really is our paradise.
Phil Hopper purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Phil Hopper chose Port Douglas
We chose this property because of its great location - we first visited Port Douglas in 2008 to catch up with family for a 70th birthday celebration. This was the first time we had been to Far North Queensland and we fell in love with everything about Port Douglas. We chose this apartment for the following reasons:- it is self-contained one-bedroom apartment that is within easy walking distance to everything we want - beach, marina, shops, restaurants.

This properties location is a drawcard - 100 metre walk to Four Mile Beach which has Surf Lifesaving on duty daily. Across the road from this property is the beginning of the shops, cafes and great eateries.

Location and comfort
This apartment is a block from the beach and at the end of a six block commercial district where all restaurants and shopping activities lie. Perfect for a couple who does not have a car. I particularly liked the outdoor couch on the patio., a perfect way to relax after a day snorkeling or a walk to the rainforest. The only criticism I have is an odd smell when you first enter the apartment. I was unable to identify the odor or source, but the owner thought it might be from the laundry room downstairs. We kept the balcony door open and fans running at all times and were able to live with it. The apartment was spotlessly clean and I would definitely return here, and recommend it to friends.
We loved having Gail & Darryl, they were quite and respected the apartment and left doing dishes & clean area.
Rubbish bin bag wasn’t removed and feel the odor May have come from the bin as it’s gone now.
Gail was friendly and easy to talk too.
We would highly recommend Gail to future hosts.
