We traveled to Port Douglas with our family of 6 - 2 adults, 4 children in December 2012. We chose the Saltwater Luxury Apartments because we could all be comfortably accommodated in the same dwelling, unlike many hotels which require us to have at least two rooms. We stayed in the three bedroom apartment which perfectly accommodated our family and included 2 1/2 baths which was a big blessing at bath time.
The kitchen was completely outfitted with everything that we could possibly need and the grocery store was literally across the street. John and Carolyne were very helpful in arranging for a fabulous Rainforest tour with Daintree and recommending restaurants and a place where we could rent fishing equipment. We ventured out to the Great Barrier Reef while we there too. We had already booked a charter with Wavelength, but John and Carolyne also said that Calypso would be excellent for children.
All of our transfers to/from the airport, etc. were arranged by John and Carolyne as well. Service was prompt and courteous.
The location on Macrossan Street was fabulous - literally smack in the middle of all of the action. You walked one direction to the beach or the other direction to the Marina and you were surrounded by a multitude of dining options and shops. New Year's Eve fireworks were just a short 5 minute walk to the Marina.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Saltwater and would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone. If ever in Port Douglas again, it will be where we choose to "hang our hats."
