“Awesome place for a family”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

We hired a 3 bedroom townhouse and fitted us perfectly being a family of 5. There's a pool and BBQ area when you want to hang out there and have dinner. The owner Tania was very friendly and advised us of what to do in Port Douglas. They can also book tours if you have not done that yet. The townhouse was nice and tidy with air con in each room. We cooked our own food most nights and a Cole's supermarket is only a short 5 min drive in the town centre. Lots of reasonably priced things to purchase in the town.

Room Tip: We stayed in townhouse 3 which was next door to the main office and pretty close to the pool/bbq are...

Earlier this year, my wife and two close friends had the good fortune to stay at Tropical Nites in Port Douglas. We shared a generous three bedroom villa-style apartment overlooking the pool and barbeque area. The apartment was clean, well-appointed and very comfortably furnished. Close to everything, we felt quite at home. It was a great base for the various outings we took.
What made the stay particularly pleasant were our superb hosts, Damian and Tania. They went out of their way to welcome us (even arriving quite late after the office had closed) and made every effort to make sure we had everything we needed, especially great tips and advice on our excursions to the Daintree and the Reef.
We will have no hesitation returning to Tropical Nites on our return to Port Douglas next year.

Room Tip: Talk to Damian & Tania

We have just spent 10 days at Port Douglas staying at Tropical Nites. The units are spacious and well equipped but above all else clean and well furnished. Like other people we enjoyed the upstairs balcony and Tania and Damian were always there to help with trips and advice. Must be one of the best value places in PD. Look forward to our next visit.

Its the little things that make great hosts. We forgot to buy milk and Tania without any thought, gave us some of hers. Comfortable, clean, quiet. Apartments well serviced. Not to far from town. Everything you need in the apartments. Lovely spot. We only had 2 nights but a big thanks.

We booked 7 days here, got a good rate, got a great place to stay and got REALLY great hosts. Tania and Damian made it a special stay with their friendly, relaxed way of looking after us. We booked our reef trip with them and got good local info. The town houses are well appointed and spacious, the gardens and pool well maintained and peaceful. All in all, a terrific place to stay, will recommend Tropical Nites to anyone. Thanks Tania and Damian.

Room Tip: Allow houses are the same, very good.

Thanks Tanya and Damien for a great stay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. I loved that there was a place to sit outside with all of the palms providing privacy. We went for a swim at night in the pool and looked up to stars and palm fronds. I like cooking and the kitchen had everything I needed. It's a short walk to the beach and a brief drive to the shops. You guys provided great info on where to go and what to do. You made time to give us the info that made our holiday extra special. If we are ever back in Port Douglas we will stay with you again
