“Terrific little hideaway in Port Douglas”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

This is a great place to stay when visiting Port Douglas and a terrific find for LGBT visitors. The innkeepers, Gigi and Andrea, are friendly and incredibly helpful in arranging tours and transportation. The place itself has lovely grounds and they've done an amazing job in converting a former 1970s-era motel into an affordable-luxury set of private villas, complete with living room, kitchenettes, and outdoor showers/tubs. Only drawbacks? No eatery on premises, though there is a pretty reasonable breakfast/lunch cafe next door. It's a bit of a walk to the town center on Macrossan Street (about 20 mins), though hiring a bicycle from the Pink Flamingo takes care of this issue. Also, for single travelers, it may seem a bit sleepy and private and more couples-oriented -- but with the range of stuff to do in Tropical North Queensland, that shouldn't be a problem at all! Overall, highly recommend!

- Very personal service (pre-arrival and during our stay). The owners arranged all our excursions in advance and were always available during our stay.
- Clean, private, spacious "villas". Colourful and cute accomodations with everything one needs.
- Easy 20 minute walk to center of town. Ask the owners for restaurant recommendations!
- Great value for the money.

Room Tip: Number 10 is closest to the entrance!

Had a really nice stay at the Pink Flamingo. The bright colours, mixed with the humidity and heat, made me think I was in Mexico. Nice resort-style hotel with a complete suite - kitchen, bath, living room, outdoor bath, outdoor hammock. Gigi was very helpful and accommodating for us (let us keep our luggage in the room since it wasn't being used) and helped book all our tours. Nice pool and common area. Location is a bit of a walk into town but most of them are. Good place to stay.

Sadly we did not comment on the wonderful few days we had at Pink Flamingo - life became unexpectably busy the minute we returned.The setting is peaceful and private, lush and green with an individual contemporary feel. It is truly a little oasis within the bustle of Port Douglas. Our hosts were generous with information about everything from hairdressers to eateries - they get tourism and they get privacy - a must return when I lives unbusy.

We booked the private garden with romance package which made it all perfect. The hostesses were very nice and helpfull. We loved the atmosphere very much and couldn't resist to stay longer than we planned. An absolute must if you want to have a memorable stay!
