“Quirky but nice apartment”
Reviewed June 4, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This is a privately owned apartment within the Mantra on the Inlet complex. (We didn't know this till the day before we arrived as it isn't mentioned on the website or anywhere. We had a discount voucher for all Mantra properties so would probably have booked one of the regular apartments instead if we had known. Also, the reviews for Mantra on the Inlet are not as good as they are for this apartment. So on arrival we felt a little deceived).
In saying that, Phil the owner of the apartment was very helpful from the time we booked until we were in the apartment. He phoned and emailed regularly to see if there was anything further he could help with and was generally very attentive, providing us with brochures etc. This complex is at the buzzing/noisy (Wharf St) end of Macrossan St. Of course there are pros and cons associated with this but the apartment itself was very quiet once the windows were closed for the night. The unit and the balcony are spacious and great for 4 adults. A strange feature of the unit, which you can sort-of see in the photos on the website, is that the master bedroom is separated from the living area only by louvre doors that aren't full height. And the ensuite is separated from the bedroom only by a louvre window (no door). So bedroom and bathroom activities become a very public affair to those in the living room, if you understand my meaning.... It wouldn't be a problem for only 2 people staying but was sometimes awkward with the 4 of us. (Radio on and ceiling fan off for a few minutes after breakfast each morning!)
Very comfy bed; Small but perfectly adequate kitchenette; The pool at this complex is tiny. We purchased 3 days of wifi for $AUD 40.

Thank you Kristine it was great to have you all again & to take the time to say how much you all enjoyed your stay in the apartment is lovely.
Service, trust & advise is something we understand is important to guests holidays so recognising that we do go the extra mile is appreciated always.
Our return guest bookings each year is exciting to think we have looked after a guest to want too re book with us.
Kristine you always treat the apartment with respect like its your own home away from home and I thank you for that.
Thanks for the great communication which helps Checkin goes smoothly.
Cheers PHIL & Lisa

Hi Debbie & Kevin
Thank you for taking the time review your stay which is very satisfying to know that what we love to do is appreciated by great guests like yourselves.
You always look after the apartment & don't leave much for our cleaner to do :0) on checkout.
Happy guests like you really make our small business grow which is why we get booked up to 12 months in advance & with recent owner awards we are great full to guests like yourselves who take the time after a holiday to just say thank you, which goes a long way.
Look forward to having you in November & might drop over for coffee with you both to say hi.
Warm Regards
Phil & Lisa

Thanks Emer, I know how important this stay was with your family coming in from overseas and glad we could help make it special for you all. The best recommendations are previous guests who tell friends and family about their experience with us, so thank you for trusting us with your port Douglas experience & pleased we didn't let your expectations down in any way.
We love having new & return guests in our apartments we have met so many fantastic people which a lot have become close friends from all over the world.
Warm regards Phil & Lisa

Geraldine ThAnK YoU so much for your review and expressing your appreciation for the efforts we made to make sure your stay with us was a memorable one which is so important to us, booking from particularly overseas can be daunting as to what to expect on arrival as you said so we put 100 % into each booking knowing that with open communication at all times from start to finish of your booking.
You were all just the PeRfEcT guests that owners wish for when renting.
You all also looked after the apartment like it was your own home which I appreciate..
Thank you again for taking the time to show what a great time you had in PD and I'm pleased that we could play a part in your experience ...
Warmest Regards
Phil & Lisa
