An excellent choice.Spacious well equipped apartment.Lovely pool.It was very quiet when we were there in February.Thst was fine in the apartments but this was a bad time to visit Port Douglas itself. These are lovely well run apartments in a nice location and within walking distance of the town and right beside the beach

You couldn't find better hosts than Andrew and Melissa . Nothing is to much trouble. We came for our honeymoon and had a top floor room that was very spacious , clean and private. The hotel is only a short walk from the main st (Macrossan) which is ideal as it's close enough that it's a 2min walk but far...

We could not ask for better accommodations than Mobray By The Sea for a long weekend with our daughter and her husband. Our suite had all the necessities including a full refrigerator, washer/dryer, lanai porch for cool al fresco living. Pool was immaculate and open late. Our host helped us book the best snorkeling on the reef and some terrific...

I like being located within walking distance of the main street (Macrossan) and also the beach, so this was ideal. Our third stay in Port Douglas. The proprietors, Andrew and Melissa, were super helpful and pleasant. The room was very comfortable with AC in the bedrooms as well as the open area lounge/dine/kitchen. There was also a clothes drier as...

Great location and the hosts Andrew and Melisa were awesome. Nothing to hard for them. Beach towels provided, 5 minute walk to safe beach, parking underground. The rooms are great with great WiFi and foxtel channels. Only problem with our room was that the AC was not a split system. We were on the top floor (3rd level) and comparing...

This location has just moved to my #1 spot for accomodation in Port Douglas. Its location location location. Friendly staff, clean and welcoming accomodation suited my family of four perfectly. Its close to the beach, the restaurants, the shops you can't get any better than that.

Great location to beach & walking distance to town...Apartment had eveything we needed but needs a little TLC and could do with a better clean. Pool also needs a little more cleaning including the toilet area located within the pool.
