We stayed for 10 days and the lychee tree was perfect for us. We had a spacious apartment to sleep 4 and a lovely big verandah. no dishwasher (we lived) but the kitchen ware was so much better than anything we have ever had in "affordable" holiday accommodation. Proper, large saucepans, many of them etc . Everything comfortable, particularly the beds and lounge furniture, brilliant picture on the telly even. nothing at all bad to say. Only one bonus gecko to our disappointment and no unwelcome "wildlife" at all. Spotless.

The manager was unobtrusive, friendly and very helpful when we needed.

The pool was larger than we expected and again, excellent, the teenagers were happy. We did have to walk a bit for essentials like milk and groceries on the days we didnt have a hire car but many port douglas accoms are in that boat and we knew this in advance. Lychee tree hires bikes or a bike/car hire is only a door or two away. (The port douglas council must ban corner stores in favour of pricey restaurants). the beach just a short, pleasant stroll and the teens were big fans of the el cheapo big tyre tube hire as there were good waves (for FNQ). location was better as the main area (15 mins on foot) can be overly full on and tourist-y. we saved so much that we could then spend on reef tours etc it was a no-brainer.

The rooms are nothing fancy but have everything you need. Good for self catering. Nice pool and bbq area.
A bit of a walk from the main shops & restaurants of Port Douglas, but close to the beach (non-patrolled part anyway).
We were there for a week, and most of the time it was quiet and peaceful. Our last night was spoilt though by a loud, drunk, abusive neighbour. The manager helped out with cleanup and police when an ashtray was thrown at our front verandah. It spoilt our impressions a bit, but it was not the fault of management, they did everything they could after the problems became known.

Turned up out of hours, then spent the next hour getting all the info on the local area wonderful manager (Rodney), tried to accomodate all our requirements over the ten days we stayed.
He organised trips and tours which was unbiased and gave us the opportunity to relax as he carried out all tasks without question
Lychee Tree is a bit dated but is a clean, tidy and the position is exceptional for access to centre of Port Douglas, Marina and the beach
Would recommend Lychee Tree to all that travel to Port Douglas as an affordable alternative

We stayed last week as my husband need to be in Port for work. We really needed somewhere affordable that was 2 bed room and self catering (with a young child we really needed to eat in). Lychee Tree Apartments was great for what we needed. The kitchen had all the utensils we needed and the bedrooms were a nice size for 2 adults and a younger child.
The shallow end of the pool was perfect and if we had stayed longer we would definitely have made use of the BBQ area. It was great having amenities near the pool area, so you don't need to go back and forth to your apartment.

Having a car meant town was a 2 minute drive away and there is a Chinese, Japanese and a pizza restaurant and bottle shop close by as well (within walking distance).

For family accommodation, I would recommend the Lychee Tree Apartments! Being family run, when we had to change the booking they were great and didn't slap on a heap of booking change fees that many of the larger places do. We got the feeling that they do care about their guests and this is a great change from chain-store style resorts and holiday apartments. Thanks Guys!

Spaceous, very clean apartments, very well equipped. Easy walk to beach. Easy bus ride into Port Douglas. Nice, well kept grounds and salt water pool. Very helpful manager, able to book all tours. Had a wonderful peaceful time there.
