A beautifully styled apartment with a strong attention to detail, Doug and Jude really have thought of everything. They made us feel very welcome with wine & chocolate on arrival and managed the balance perfectly of making sure we got what we needed. There was my husband and I and our 2 boys (8 & 11) and there was enough space, particularly given we were out and about a lot and the apartment backed into the pool as well as Reynolds Park. Location is fantastic, lovely 10 minute walk into town and the facilities in the apartment are second to none - coffee machine, Netflix, Bose speaker - just lovely. We've been coming to Port Douglas for 20 years now and I can honestly say that this has been my favourite spot to stay - thank you Doug & Jude!
I stayed at Retro Coconut for 7 nights with my husband and 15 month old little boy. We decided to book here because we were looking for something self-contained as having a kitchen and washer/dryer is important when travelling with a toddler. The kitchen is small but had everything we needed to make simple meals and there is also a communal bbq (as we were on the lower ground, our doors opened right on to the bbq area). There is also a nice espresso machine which we made good use of. They supplied us a porta-cot, stroller, highchair and some beach toys. There was also a few toys and books left out for our little one which was a nice touch. The pool is lovely and a decent size and the apartment opened straight on to the pool area. It wasn't really warm enough to go swimming and we mainly spent out time at the beach which was only a few minutes walk away. The apartment is also only about a 10 minute walk into the main street with all the restaurants and shops. The owners and manager were very helpful when booking and even installed a little child safety gate (to block off the outside area) for us so that our little boy could come outside with us on to the balcony without running off into the bbq area. We loved our time in Port Douglas and can't wait to come back!
