This place is amazing. It's a fully equipped condo/apartment. We were put in a very spacious unit with 2 bedrooms, even though it was just myself and my husband. The living room is quite large and there is a generous size kitchen for cooking. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine and dryer for clothes. Everything you need for your beach stay in Port Douglas is at this place. The apartments are very clean, there's great WIFI, and you can book any tour you want in the area from the front desk. The garage provides free parking if you happen to have a rental like we did. The location can't be beat. It's a 1-2 minute walk to the amazing 4 mile beach and about a 5-7 minute walk to the main downtown street in Port Douglas. Most Great Barrier Reef tours take off from the Marina and that's also walkable - about 10 - 15 minutes from this place. A super market (Coles) is located on the main street and is only about 10 minutes from this place so you can stock up on anything you need. The property also has a small pool area and an amazing BBQ area with a full gas grill, a small fridge, a sink and a few tables/chairs all outside. We caught a fish on a fishing charter and it was really nice being able to bring it back and grill it fresh for dinner. The property is situated on a quiet road and is a very nice place to relax after enjoying all of the incredible sights around this area. I highly recommend this place and hope to be staying here again in the future!

Garrick House is located in a great spot. A quiet street with 4 Mile Beach just minutes away. There are cafe’s also within a short walking distance. The Main Street with restaurants and shops is just down the end of the street and turn left. The wharf and marina are a bit further but still only a 10 or 15 minute walk. The accommodation is very nice. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was just right. Balcony overlooking the gardens and pool. Has all the plates cutlery etc that you need. Upon arrival the manager Al had already turned on A/C so the room was quite cool when we entered. I would thoroughly recommend Garrick House if staying in Port Douglas.

We stayed here for two relaxing weeks to go diving on Agincourt Reef and thoroughly enjoyed it. The unit was very clean with good quality beds and linen. The towels were also good quality with pool/ beach towels supplied. Our unit had a lovely deck that looked over the beautiful tropical garden and we enjoyed eating our meals there often. Our unit number 9 had been largely renovated and had sturdy cane furniture. It had good air conditioning and fans and reasonably reliable free wifi and basic tv channels. There were laundry facilities in the bathroom which was very useful although an exhaust fan would have helped with the steam from the dryer and also the shower. The small kitchen was well supplied with basic equipment though the Teflon frypans were deteriorating and the knives were blunt. There was free kitchen, laundry and bathroom supplies including toilet paper. Car parking was available undercover at the back of the building. Access was by stairs only.
Garrick House has an excellent location one block back from the beach with many coffee shops, restaurants and various interesting shops within a short walk. The large Coles supermarket was about 15 minutes slow walk away past beautiful tropical gardens and landscaping. The boat harbour was a short 5 minute drive away. There is a car hire company 5 minutes walk away to do trips to Mosman Gorge, Cape Tribulation etc. These are on well maintained bitumen country roads.
The friendly manager Al was very helpful with lots of good advice about local attractions. He was often seen around working hard cleaning, and maintaining the wonderful gardens. We really enjoyed our visit and plan to return next year. And did I mention the beautiful tropical gardens?!!!

Lovely 2 Bedroom apartment. Fantastic location, close to beach, shops and restaurants. Al and Olivia are great hosts, happy to assist with any query and day trips. The complex is well cared for and is being continually updated.

I am travelling with friends and we usually stay at hotels in North America in properties such as Embassy Suites to the Westin and Sheraton. This information is for context for my perspective of this accommodation . We rented a 2 bedroom apartment. Here are my random comments. Positives: Charming looking building, cute small pool for cooling off (not large enough for swimming), well organized and friendly hosts who can book your tours and transfers and are available after hours by phone, large size television in living room, well organized kitchen, lots of pillows in bedrooms, key operated safe in bedroom closet convenient, free beach towels to use, in suite laundry very convenient, 5 mins or less walk to 4 Mile Beach, and 10 minutes or less to marina and shops and restaurants. Challenges: stairs so need muscles if your luggage is heavy, 1 bedroom with twin size beds tight in space (only space for 1 adult size luggage) and feels basic but adequate, water pressure in shower fine but could be stronger, bathroom vanity basic with a missing symbol on one of the taps, and bedroom safe not attached so can be carried away. Overall, 5 out 5 for the hosts, 4.5 for location, and 3.5 out 5 for the property. If i could do 3.5 in the rating symbol, I would. I hope this was helpful.
