Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful! They had everything we needed and more (coolers, towels, beach inner tubes, floaties, bikes, etc.). Wished we could stay longer but COVID-19 stopped that. Thank you for everything!!

    Stay here, don’t look anywhere else

    Absolutely amazing place to stay in Port Douglas!! The staff is so friendly, the room is perfect, and the location is amazing (steps from the beach and on the Main Street with restaurants and shops). They also have everything you could ever need at the beach (towels, chairs, coolers, toys etc). I wish I could have stayed much longer!
