Aidan was a gracious and informative host. Accommodation was clean and spacious, beds comfortable and everything we needed for our stay. Easy four minute drive to the centre of Port Douglas. Plenty of free parking. Definitely would recommend and stay here again.

This is a fabulous place to stay. The rooms are spacious and clean and very affordable and have all the amenities needed. It’s a well-run, neat and tidy site with a great swimming pool and spa. The owners are really helpful, they booked all my tours for me and I had a fantastic time staying here. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Port Douglas - highly recommended!

Aidan couldn't have been more helpful especially with the number of times we needed to reschedule our tours due to COVID. A very enjoyable stay, especially enjoyed the pool after our days out and about, thanks Aidan and Alex.

You can see why this place continues to receive 5 stars! From the direct booking, to arrival and everything in between, we can’t thank Aidan and Alex enough. Our families booked three rooms and were offered local advice, tours and honest feedback on what was worth doing in the time we had at Port Douglas. The rooms, grounds, location and amenities were perfect and truly was the highlight of our trip. They know how to cater for everyone’s needs. We will be back and thanks again! BOOK now!
