“Loved it!”
Reviewed 9 November 2009

Totally agree with the other review about the location. This part of town seems to be the best so close to the beach and not far from the main street. No need for a car at all. It's also really really quiet and seems that quite a few locals live in this area.

Good sized pool and really nice eating meals outside on the decking under the shelter. The gardens are lush and stunning too. Lots of privacy too from the other villa and next door. Your own little piece of paradise!

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (main ensuite). Super clean. Heaps of new, swanky equipment (plasma, cable TV, super aircons etc) and stacks of quality kitchen utensils to use for BBQ dinners.

Fell in love with Port Douglas and would definitely come back to Cassowary next time with a bigger group. Totally worth the money! The guys at Port Douglas Getaways(the booking agents) are really nice too.

Very highly recommended.

Reviewed 28 August 2009

We came back to Port Doug in July 2009 and booked Cassowary Villas through Port Douglas Getaways. What a find!

Right on Garrick Street, which runs parallel to the beach, this place is in the best location to visit Port Douglas. We didn't need a car once, it only takes 5 mins into town and 2 mins around the corner to the beach. The local streets are quiet with frangipani trees everywhere. Across the road is a local cricket oval which was great for frisbee and soccer with the kids.

Cassowary has two self-contained villas on a private property and we stayed in the rear one. Great use of timber with louvre windows that open on to the beautifully maintained tropical gardens. The furnishings and kitchen implements are top quality and the soft beds and strong aircon add to the luxury. And the main ensuite bathroom. Wonderful. The shower head is gigantic. No water restrictions here!

The layout encourages interaction with the outdoors with the main dining area on sheltered wooden decking beside the pool. You can open the whole windowed wall of the living room; there was nothing better than sitting with a drink and listening to the tropics.

The whole family loved it and will be back for sure. I can't recommend it enough!
