I really can't speak highly enough of this place.
Tim and Michelle were the most caring hosts we have ever met, nothing at all was too much trouble.
The location is amazing, our son uses a wheelchair and we were able to walk everywhere.
2 minutes to the beach one way and 2 minutes to Macrossan Street the other.
The room was spotless and had everything in the kitchen you would need.
Tim and Michelle went way beyond what they had to do to make sure we were comfortable.
The price is great, the location perfect and the hosts are just amazing.
We are already planning our next trip and can't wait to get back

The location was very convenient to walk to shops, restaurants and beach. The units were affordable, clean, the beds and furniture comfortable, also an excellent TV. The pool and BBQ were great. Little extras were provided in the kitchen to make food preparation easier. As they are older some of the fittings need updating and refurbishing. We liked the outside patio, although a number of times it was unpleasant sitting out there or having the door open as the owner and guests in the unit below us who also sat outside, smoked and talked loudly. We were also woken every morning around 5.30am due to the loud cries of the wild birds which had taken up residence next door and echoed through the central car parking area, although this was beyond the owner's control.

This place is in the perfect location for Port Douglas - 3 minute walk to surf life saving club (and beach) and 3 minute walk to Macrossan Street.
Hosts are magnificent and make you feel like part of the family.
Pool is perfect.
Rooms are very clean and spacious.

The location is really convenient, everything is within walking distance. The room was wonderful - really clean and spacious with all amenities. The service was incredibly friendly - Tim and Michelle make you feel right at home. To top it all off it was really affordable. Couldn't ask for more!

Not having been to Port Douglas before, I relied heavily on the comments I had read on trip advisor and was not disappointed. Marina Terrace Apartments are as many others have mentioned a perfect location to base your stay, both for the attractions of FNQ and restaurants/pubs in Port Douglas itself. Lovely clean accommodation, pool area, great block out curtains in Number 11 (which for a fussy sleeper like me is important!). Nothing was a hassle for Tim or Michelle, even resetting the Austar after our daughter had "mucked" with it!
Great knowledge on what to do, plenty of brochures. You can even book your daytrips through them - although we didn't as I am too anal and had almost everything prebooked - (sorry guys).
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place - it may not be the big flashy resort , but it makes up for it in spades with your hosts personality and genuine friendliness, and the cost.
Hint - try to be there on a Sunday for the Market - fabulous.
For something different look up Grub - Trike tours. We did a full day trip to Cape Trib for the 3 of us. Lots of fun.

Room Tip: Penthouse - a bit bigger, great balcony, rooftop with BBQ to yourself, 2 bathrooms.

Recently returned to the US after an extended holiday in AU. The Marina Terraces was one of many apartments we stayed at during our vacation. The location can not be beat nor can the customer service and hospitality. Both Tim and Michelle are excellent hosts and will go out of their way to meet your needs. Excellent in all aspects. Thank you Sir Tim and Michelle.
