Lychee Tree Holiday Apartments

Reviewed 5 November 2012

My wife and I stayed for 7 nights and were upgraded to a larger apartment. The apartment was basic and dated but had all that is needed for cooking and laundry. Bed was very comfortable. Rebecca (the manager) was outstanding in her service and made our stay a pleasure. She asked about our interests and gave us good advice and made some booking for us but was not pushy. This is not a resort but has a pool great for families with shallow areas as well a deep end. It suited our needs well as we were out each day. Grounds were tidy. Need a car or bicycle as it is a long walk from main shopping and restaurants. Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: Property is on long section beside a campground. We were near back of property about 30m beyond the...

We stayed for 8 days with a family of 2 adults and 3 kids. The rooms were basic but practical with lots of room to spread out, simple tasteful decoration. The washing machine and dryer were a godsend after 4 days with all of our clothes absolutely soaked from the Daintree rainforest. No dishwasher but a great selection of cutlery, utensils, crockery with a microwave and oven and stove. Good BBQ area.

The owner, Rodney provided great service and came running when our child trapped his finger in the door with genuine concern, also accommodating with us arriving a bit early and needing to get into our accomadation.

The pool was great for our kids of 4,6 and 8 with plenty of toys and a shallow area for the toddlers and a deeper area for the older kids and adults. About 5-10 minutes walk from the beach depending on the speed of your kids but a bit further from town. We had a rental car.

Good value for money for a family of 5.

Our family of four found this a great place to stay. On the outskirts of town with easy access to the beach. A small pool in the hotel yard was fine for a quick swim. The washing machine in the flat was a useful extra. Great location for visiting Daintree and Reef.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs at the back of the property. Surrounded by vegetation-and humming birds.

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!
