Reviewed 11 December 2013 via mobile

Just come back from an 8 day stay at Saltwater Apartments. As it was off season, we got a great deal and were also lucky enough to be upgraded to a top floor apartment. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, with an ensuite with spa, bathroom with toilet and a separate toilet. The pool and barbecue areas were great and the location was in the heart of Port Douglas but very quiet at night. John and Carolyne were extremely helpful and knowledgeable on the local area and booked day trips for us. Would definitely return in the future.

Stayed: December 2013, travelled with friends

The Saltwater Luxury Apartments are well-located in the heart of the action in Port Douglas, just steps from all the shops and restaurants which make this area a favorite. The owners are welcoming and helpful with great information on the area and its attractions. The apartments are non-serviced, so keep that in mind as you determine what you want and need.

Parking is under cover, with the entrances on Grant Street. One grocery is 50 meters away, along with a bottle shop. The beach is at the end of Marcrossan Street, a couple of blocks walk, and the Marina is a couple of blocks down Grant Street. The office is on level 1 of the building, which is one flight of stairs up from the street. Apartments are on levels 2 and 3, up more steps. The heated pool is on level 2.5.

We rented the three bedroom penthouse for our family, and it was spacious and clean and relaxing. The balcony is quite large, with shaded and covered areas to sit and to eat. Many trees nicely frame the scenery -- distant hills and countryside. The apartment has plenty of towels, with beach towels available at the office. Soaps and shampoos are in pump dispensers in the two and a half baths. The master suite has its own open bathroom with whirlpool tub/open shower, and toilet.

There is a washer and dryer in the unit, as well as oven, microwave, toaster, french press, electric kettle and multiple tvs. Ceilng fans are in every room. Eight chairs are placed at both the indoor and outdoor dining tables.

The apartment is tastefully furnished and well-appointed. Tile and hard surfaces abound, making the noise within the unit a bit of an issue for those who are not on the same schedule. In addition, the master bedroom is connected to the main living area with a pair of louvered wooden "blinds." This means a sharing of sound, at least, between the master bedroom/bathroom and dining table/kitchen/living room.

There are plenty of electrical outlets and storage spaces, as well as drying racks for beach towels and swim suits.

One might quibble with the need to buy some supplies for your stay, such as paper towels, laundry detergent, napkins, trash bags, dish soap and dishwasher soap (these last three are provided in two samples each, making an argument for sparing use). I would prefer to have these supplied, but I suppose past experience and previous abuse have discouraged this. Trash is to be taken out by the guests, and requires some planning ahead as the bins are downstairs and outside.

All in all, this is a terrific choice and makes for a great launching pad to the area.

Great location, right in the middle of the Macrossan St and very close to the supermarket. It's an easy walk to the marina and Four Mile Beach. We stayed here this time because we travelled as a family and needed the extra room. The apartments are spacious and well furnished. The pool was large and the perfect temperature. There was a bit of noise from the street late on Saturday night into Sunday morning from revellers but we did have our balcony doors open. The other nights were no problem.
John and Carolyn are a lovely couple and were very helpful with our booking and also while we stayed there.

Having stayed here previously we knew what to expect with its location, being central to everything.
The standard of accommodation was very good and the units are well equipped for a medium term stay.
The complex is quiet and you can't hear any street noise with the doors closed.
We had a very pleasant experience.
