“Like staying with old friends”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

people found this review helpful

The most outstanding aspect of staying at this apartment was the hospitality and service provided by Phil and Lisa. Phil kept in touch throughout our stay to see if we needed anything. He was a great help in arranging tours for us and sent us some brochures in the mail before our trip.
The apartment is beautifully decorated and we were greeted with a bottle of wine, a bunch of flowers, chocolate biscuits and fresh milk in the fridge. What a lovely surprise.
The beds were super comfortable and the living area very spacious. Great balcony for afternoon drinks or a quiet read.
The only minor inconvenience was the noise from the pubs next door. The sealed glass doors helped but if you're a light sleeper you might need to wait til the pubs close before you settle in for the night.
If you're looking for a beautiful apartment just a short walk to the beach and if you want to be looked after like an old friend, this is the place for you. Phil and Lisa's service and friendly helping hand is second to none!!!
We would certainly stay with Phil and Lisa again. They're the best hosts I've ever experienced!

“Best stay yet in Port Douglas”

Been to Port Douglas a number of times, however, this was the best accommodation yet.

Nothing was to much trouble for Phil and indeed the apartment was like home from home.

I work in the property world here in the UK and I can assure you that Phil's attention to detail is second to none. The place felt like home from the moment we stepped through the door and we will most certainly be happy to recommend the property to anybody that is looking to stay in PD.

Lastly, Phils advice on who to speak to for trips again was second to none.

Just ask Phil about all things and you will NOT go wrong.

Oh Leslie THANK YOU so much for your review which means a lot from someone in the properties industry.
I couldn't be more pleased that your return trip was with us this time & you found your apartment like a home which is a huge compliment from you.
Secondly it was the most interesting pleasure being able to meet your family & have some great chats throughout your stay.
It's surprising you all had time to sleep with all the activities you all did.
Thirdly thank you for totally respecting the apartment in every way like your own home & leaving the apartment in such a clean & tidy condition.
Leslie I will really look forward to a beer with you next time :0)
Again thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to the above review.

“Very comfortable appartment”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

We stayed here during a trip around Australia and were very impressed. It is in a complex of quite tightly packed holiday rentals but still gave good privacy. The facilities are very good and we even had a spa bath as well as the shower. There are cooking facilities, dishwasher and your own washing machine. The bed was comfortable and the air conditioning good and quiet. The shared pool was good and had plenty of shade.

Prior to our arrival, the owners emailed us with directions and suggested eating places, we liked the Tin Shed on the waterfront. Port Douglas is a great place to stay with lots of attractions.

Wi-Fi is not free but provided by a third party. Don't use the Azure service it's very over-priced and unreliable. Contact the owners (not the reception desk) and they will direct you to a very reasonably priced service.

Thank you Alan, Anne,John & Chris so much for trusting me in your stay in our two bedroom apt, I couldn't more pleased the apt was everything you expected & you all did so much around the central location.
I think it was about 3 days before I could catch up with you after Checkin you were doing so much :0)
My apologies i didn't get the free wifi code to you before hand.
I'm pleased the apt was what you expected and you found it ideal for your trip from the UK.
You all were perfect guests and respected the apt at all times which we appreciate.
I was was also happy to catch up for a chat on your balcony before you were off again to the Tin Shed :0)
The list of suggestions are really just cut some time in searching and trust you found your own eat outs as well.
Again thank you for your booking and trust you all had a safe trip home to the UK.
Warm Regards Phil & Lisa owners.

From the moment we booked the apartment with Phil he was fantastic-friendly,helpful and nothing was too much trouble. He kept in touch to make sure our stay was perfect-giving us advice and information on Port Douglas- what to do and where to eat.The apartment delivered on how it was advertised and exceeded our expectations. The location on the Inlet was perfect- with shops and eateries at our doorstep. It was set in beautiful surroundings with a great pool. The apartment was beautifully furnished with an amazing balcony,very clean and the King bed was the most comfortable we have slept in. We felt right at home from the time we walked through the door-we absolutely loved it. Thank you Phil for helping make our holiday so perfect in such a beautiful place with the only downside being that we had to leave! We would happily recommend Phil & Lisa and their apartment to anyone. Jacinta & David

“This apartment for us was perfection.”

We travelled as two couples to Port Douglas, and were very pleased to find what we would say was the "Perfect Accommodation". Close to the water, with some lovely walks to and around the "Inlet". Lots of Coffee Shops, Eating Places, and for the "Ladies"' dresses, shoes, you name it, it's here. Our apartment we felt was perfect, just bring yourselves. "Happy Hour" on the balcony was just so good. To the beach, a very pleasant 10 Minute walk, and you will love it.
Our hosts Phil and Lisa, were always "on call" if we needed any advice regarding Tours, Restaurants, or any queries at all. We found them most helpful.
Phil had also arranged a serving of "Humming Bird" cake on our arrival' how good is that?
Thank you Phil and Lisa for being great hosts, it can make a huge difference.
