Great location - two minute walk to netted beach area as part of the beautiful coastline. Close to a range of restaurants, coffee spots and the main shopping strip. Friendly service and an amazing range of gear for you to use whilst there - beach chairs, eskies, pool equipment, umbrellas, and bikes (no hire fee and we enjoyed half a day exploring Pt Douglas). Highly recommend.
Absolutely loved our stay here! The ladies were so welcoming and helpful and location is perfect. Had everything you could need for a holiday and Ryan was the cutest resident dog, great for those people missing there own dogs, like us! Will definitely stay again.
I cannot rate By The Sea highly enough! The girls are amazing, nothing is too much trouble and really make everyone feel special, which makes for a wonderful holiday experience. They will take care of everything from booking your room, transfers, dining and experiences. The rooms are perfect, clean, very comfortable, everything you need and beautifully decorated. Facilities are second to none, with a huge range of holiday items to use throughout your stay. This is our 3rd visit and just booked our 4th before we left!! I have recommended to many friends who also enjoyed their stay. Well done ladies!!!
Stayed for a week and loved Sadie’s Den. A spacious 1 bedroom apartment on the first floor. The facilities are great and staff are so friendly and helpful. We are astounded at the use of free bikes, beach chairs, esky’s, ice, beach trolleys and the list goes on. Perfect for children. I would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to couples or families. I was even given an iPad to use & Nespresso machine.
I cannot say enough good things about our trip. Staff, accommodation, facilities, location, all perfect. We stayed for 5 nights with our 8 and 5 year old, we didn't want to leave. The girls at reception could not be nicer, so friendly and helpful. Accommodation was gorgeous, we were in the Rainforest Balcony apt, just perfect, loved my morning coffee on the balcony. Facilities!! The girls have thought of EVERYTHING. If you can't find something, well then you just haven't looked in the right place. There is nothing they have forgotten. The amount that can be borrowed in reception is unbelievable and everything is in such good condition. The pool is small as they say on their website, but my kids adored it. It was hard to get them out! Location is PERFECT. You are a minute away from the beach and there are so many nice family friendly restaurants within a few minutes walk. Easy for little legs. If you are considering booking this place - do it. If you can get a reservation!…
I booked By the Sea based on TA reviews and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived, the team made us feel welcome and we knew we had chosen the right place to stay. From walking into reception and being told all the equipment we could borrow - from pool floats, beach chairs, eskies to board games, bluetooth speakers and dvds. Anything you can think you might need, they have! The rooms were clean and again, anything you might need, was in there. Having a washing machine and dryer was great to do a mid-holiday wash! Location is also spot on. Right on 4 mile beach and at the end of the main street but still blissfully quiet. If this hasn't convinced you that this is the perfect place to stay in Port Douglas, i haven't even told you about the amazing ladies here! From recommendations on where to visit, places to stop and ringing to check availability on tours, these ladies make By the Sea. Thank you for having us. We loved every minute of out stay and wish we could have stayed longer. We will definitely be back next time we visit Port Douglas.…
We will be back! Outstanding service, everything is in their job description! Anything you could use or borrow for a day trip or on the beach is supplied. Beach toys, towels, eskies of various sizes, water coolers, fresh ice water…. Ugh, they’ve thought of all of it. The ladies booked some great reef outings for us before we even left home! The location of the accommodation was perfect too. Main Street, but quiet end, right at 4 mile beach and walking trail. Very clean, practical and well presented. We even had a little balcony for our pre dinner drinks each day. Just great.
Besides the perfect location, great facilities, very friendly and helpful staff, By The Sea is the ideal place for a beach holiday because your stay includes use of an exhaustive list of complementary items - bicycles, eskies, beach chairs and toys, umbrellas, goggles, exercise equipment and even buggies to transport everything! Literally all you need to bring is your suitcase!
We stayed here with our family of 6, and were pleasantly surprised with our accomodation - the 3 Bed Villa. It was immaculate and bigger than we had imagined with 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms upstairs and the loungeroom, kitchen, dining and another bathroom/laundry downstairs. Balconys were a treat upstairs and downstairs, with beatiful views. We had a shared pool however as we were nearly the only ones in our section, it felt like it was a personal pool just for our villa! The kids were able to access all sorts of floaties and pool toys from reception, they had a great time. The reception had a lot to offer with boardgames, videos, beach items and more. The staff were so lovely, made us feel so welcome! We would definitely stay here again soon!
We had such a great time. The accomodation was just perfect. We had a large room with all the amenities needed to be self contained from dryer,washing machine to cooking utensils and much much more. This accomodation is absolutley awesome for young families ,couples and friends. It is the most friendly and comfortable place we have ever stayed. The staff are absolutley beautiful so helpful , happy and always pleased to see us with huge smiles when they greeted us. Very special ladies. The freebies are amazing. From a shopping trolley for your groceries that you can purchase just a 5 min walk up the street to a complementary esky full of ice to take to the beach which is only 5 mins away. I could go on and on how great this place is but do yourself a huge favour go and book this hotel for yourself and you'll be going back and back. Absolutley loved it. Thankyou so much girls for making our stay so enjoyable. We will definatley be back and this time we will be bringing both our families with us.…
