I chose these apartments after reading Trip Advisor reviews and they did not disappoint. The location is fantastic. Close to the beach and an easy stroll around the corner to town. We were having a family reunion and I emailed in advance to ask if we could possibly have apartments near each other. The hosts kindly obliged and we stayed...

Balboa Apartments are amazing. Our hosts for our week long stay were super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect as it is 50m from the beach and right on the Main Street of Port Douglas, with easy walking distance to everything. We stayed in apartment number 5, a family 3 bedroom. The living area is huge. The apartment is...

The rooms were very spacious - the pool and spa was super warm and the place was very clean. Less than 100 metres to walk to four mile beach and Some of the apartments face Macrossan street. The hosts were lovely.

We stayed 6 nights in Apt. 14, a third floor 3 bedroom/2 bath with a patio that had an ocean view. The apartment was perfect for parents and three adult children (kings in two bedrooms and twin beds in the other). The kitchen was well appointed and we loved having the laundry facilities. Everything you could want to do in...

This is one of the most perfectly located apartment resorts in Port Douglas and one that exudes quality. The property offers huge, well appointed two and three bedroom apartments with generous balconies, some of which have views of four mile beach and the sea. The resort has a decent sized pool which unlike many in Port does not descend into...

Situated a couple of minutes from the beach and just a short stroll to restaurants and bars located in the main drag of Macrossan Street this was the ideal place to chill out. The hosts Lynette and Andrew were extremely friendly and helpful and the apartment clean and spacious. The only downside was that the walls are fairly thin and...

Thank you for your review. We did find it strange that you commented on the thin walls as they are solid brick unlike a lot of the newer complexes. We are gradually putting backs on most louver doors to help with privacy and appreciate your comment.
