Stayed for 2 weeks with adult family members. Plenty of room for 6 people & we really enjoyed our stay. Last year stayed nearby but it's much better here for the same price. Like the way you only pay for the bedrooms used, as we don't always travel with the family. The managers are very helpful, thanks for the new...

Even though you were here for 2 weeks I am sure it is just a distant memory now so you must return. Thank for staying with us at Balboa Apartments.

We recently stayed a week at Balboa. We had six adults in a unit and needed some space as our daughters wedding preparations took place within - makeup hair etc. It was perfect. The hard working managers were very helpful and easy going. The complex is an easy walk to the beach and the other end of town. Easily recommended.

We were so pleased for you all that your daughters special day was just that. Special. Pools are noisy especially with young children although we encourage guests to keep noise to a minimum. Hope to see you again in perhaps one of our other apartments not so close to the pool!

We rented a Balboa apartment for my family of four plus two friends. The apartment was very large, furnished and equipped to a high standard, and accommodated six people very easily. The location of these apartments is perfect, situated at the end of the main street in Port Douglas and just yards from the north end of the beach. A...

Fantastic location with small children. Well appointed apartment with lots of space and close to the beach and main street. Easy to come and go with minimal planning. Heated pools were a bonus. Will be back.

Another fantastic and relaxing stay at the Balboa Apartments. Great location with its proximity to the beach and Macrossan St. The accommodation is very stylish with ample space and, as always, Andrew & Lyn are very thoughtful and fun hosts!

We loved our apartment. It had everthing we needed and was so roomy. There were 5 adults and a baby in our three bed apartment and we were very comfortable. The pool was nice but only small. The position is awesome as you are right by the beach and a very short walk to the main street with all the...

Thank you for your kind review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We have 2 apartments which do not have a private BBQ but both are so very close to the communal pool BBQ and so the owners have elected not to provide one of their own.

My husband, son and I stayed at the Balboa Apartments when we visited Port Douglas on a trip from the US to Australia earlier this year. We were enchanted! Our hosts were so gracious and welcoming, and the apartment was spacious, light-filled and very comfortable. We could see the beach and ocean from the balcony, and the pool was pretty...

We stayed in a spacious 2 bedroom apartment which was clean, had everything that we needed and was in a fantastic location. Andrew and Lynnette were great hosts and we would not hesitate to stay there again.

This 3 bedroom apartment is incredibly spacious and well located. It is very close to 4 mile beach, but also close to shops and restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped- would benefit from a better barbecue in the communal area. The only criticism is poor wifi.

We recently stayed here and have no complaints at all. We've stayed at a number of places in port Douglas and this one is one of the best. We had 4 adults and 2 kids (9&2) and it suited all of us & was very safe for an inquisitive toddler. Kitchen is well stocked so it's easy to shop and...
