Alan & Peta were the most hospitable and helpful hosts. They were extremely knowlegable about the trips and advised on suitability for families. The accomodation was spotlessly clean, very spacious and more importantly than anything very cool. The Air conditioning and ceiling fans more than a match for the Port Douglas humidity - essential for a comfortable nights sleep. The accomodation benefited from having washing and drying facilities and the usual TV/DVD combination if the tropical heavens opened. The pool was clean, very warm and safe for families. Swimming locally off the beaches is only in a stinger suit during the Oz summer months, so a pool is essential despite the coastal location.
Make sure you've some bush strength mozzy spray as the local beasties are very unforgiving. Great place to act as a base for discovering Daintree, Cape Trib and the Mossman Gorge area as well as attractions around Cairns. Port Douglas full of great places to eat out with a varied price range.
Overall - Recommended.
