Coconut Grove Serviced Appartments was exactly what we were after to relax and recharge. The staff at the reception desk were incredibly helpful and were very happy to assist in booking transfers, recommend restaurants and booking tours. Its' location is very good- about 500m to the beach and is at the quiet end of the main street, but is across the road from Foodworks and next door the the walk up bottle shop. We didn't have or need a car while we were in Port, but there is undercover security parking if required.
We stayed in the Penthouse apartment and found it to be spotlessly clean and very stylishly decorated. We only used 1 of the 3 bedrooms, but all seemed to be of similar quality when peeking through the windows. Each room has a celing fan in addition to air conditioning. The bed was very comfortable.
There is a fully functioning kitchen and our package included a complementary bottle of Verve and a cheese/fruit platter which was delicious. The kitchen has a breakfast bat which seats up to 6 and there is an additional stable setting on the downstairs balcony. The lounge area had a flat screen TV a couple of chairs and a comfy sofa.
The main bedroom has a door leading onto the downstairs balcony and a small table and chair. Looking out over the balcony, you can see the downstairs apartment's private plunge pool and spa. You can kind of see the street, but it is well set back, which means there is much less noise that many of the other main street accommodation.
There is a walk in wardrobe with full length mirrors and dressing table which then leads into the main bathroom. There is a double sink and freestanding spa tub and wet shower and a toilet behind a frosted screen. The toiletries were L'Occitane which was a bit of a treat!
Upstairs is acessed via stairs just inside the front door of the apartment. At the top of the stairs is an outdoor kitchen set up with a bar fridge and BBQ- this is undercover. The terrace is on 3 levels. on the bottom level is an 8 seater setting and umbrella. The next level is the spa and the top level is the plunge pool and 2 lounge chairs. Although there is no shade up there, the umbrella is on a stand and can be moved to where ever you want it, which worked perfectly for us. The pool and spa are the same temperatures and are not as hot as you would have further south, but I think it would be too hot to have it heated anyway. The terrace is fairly private, it is possible for the apartments either side to poke their heads around the corner and see in.
There was also a public lap pool which was freezing cold but refreshing! While we were there, it did not seem to get much sun...
All in all, we could not fault Coconut Grove, it would be one of the best place we have stayed in QLD.
