We had a lovely time at the resort and the owner's Amanda and Peter were extremely helpful. They recommended good spots to go for dinner and picnics and made sure we had the best stay. The apartment was perfect for our little family and we will definitely come again 😊

Having booked for 2020 and had to cancel due to COVID we couldn't believe when July 2021 came around with all the uncertainty of border closures. In such uncertain times the only thing that was reassuring was the conversations with Amanda & Peter. During all the confusion they held bookings, looked at other options and even fitted us in after we had to let our Penthouse Suite go due to timings of when we could fly. Once we got there Amanda & Peter couldn't help us enough, nothing was too much trouble and they are by far the friendliest hosts we have ever had.. We stayed in a standard two bedroom apartment which was spotless clean, as was the whole complex. The apartment had everything you could need and if it didn't I'm sure they could find it for you. The cosy pool area was a tropical tranquility and the pool a lovely temperature. Great location just a stroll from everything. We usually book all our own excursions but Amanda & Peter did this for us with complete ease allowing us to spend more time relaxing. Great holiday made better by lovely people. Thanks

As everyone here has written, the hosts Amanda and Peter are super friendly and helpful. They take their recommendations for tours seriously, and we were happy with their suggestions for day tours. The pool is relaxing (if there are no noisy kids around), and the rooms are bright, and incredibly clean. Lush green surrounds, and close enough to the centre of Port Douglas, which is just a five minute walk away, but not in the noisy heart of it all. Also walking distance to the beach; the lookout; and the Sunday market.

Thank you Amanda & Peter, a perfect stay in spotless accommodation and relaxing grounds, and cared for by your warm, friendly, caring selves. Our 17 - 26 July stay was one of the best ever because of your flexibility around our changing plans, and the friendliness and care you extended to our extended family too. Thank you for the great touring suggestions, and your interest and excitement about the family wedding we were up there for...especially the pat on the back to me as the Celebrant of the day! Would definitely stay again, highly recommended...keep well & see you in the pool next time xxxx Totsiens

Spent 8 days with family and it was like spending 8 days with friends as Amanda and Peter make you feel like it's your own place. The apartments are very clean and comfortable and great for a family. The pool is a good size and is heated, which is not the case at all Port Douglas accommodation. Perfect distance to walk to everything yet incredibly quiet. Amanda and Peter will also book any tours you want to take at no extra cost. Thanks for a great stay. Highly recommend.
