“My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Marilyn,s apt, an older style building and the aesthetics were most pleasing. Everything was as described and we were very comfortable. Being on the beach was great for walks and a lovely area for children to play on the esplanade. Thankyou Marilyn for your information on arrival, easy to get settled.”
Marilyn's reviewsAs a host (6)
“My family and I had the most amazing stay at Marilyns in Port Douglas and the apartment was perfect in every way. Thank you so much and would love to be able to return one day.”
“The property is in a great location right beside a magnificent beach. It was fantastic to be able to get to the beach in less than 5 minutes. Port Douglas itself is just a short drive away and has all the facilities you need for a great holiday. We particularly enjoyed the yacht club which was very friendly and it's members took us out on an evening cruise! Marilyn could not have been more helpful in setting up our visit and providing background information.”
“We had a wonderful stay at Marilyn's house, which is well equipped and set in beautiful gardens. The children loved being able to swim every day and being able to walk just a few steps onto Port Douglas beach. We had a lovely meal at The Beach Shack near to the villa and it was very easy to drive into central Port Douglas for a huge choice of restaurants/shops as well as the marina for trips to the reef (we enjoyed going on Wavedancer to the Low Isles which was perfect for younger children as the snorkelling was from a beach). We'd also highly recommend Hartley's Crocodile Farm, but were disappointed that we didn't manage to fit in a trip to the Daintree. Marilyn went above and beyond with her communication to help us prepare for the trip and work out the best trips to do with the children.”
“It was great staying at Marilyn's property at Port Douglas. It's a couple of kms from the main part of Pt Douglas but just behind the beach itself. The villa is in a lovely complex with beautiful Balinese style gardens. The villa itself is very comfortable, and has everything you need and the furnishings are lovely. We spent most of our time there outside on the patio as it was lovely and warm. That was when we weren't out and about looking around the area. Spent two days in the Daintree (highly recommended), one day at Hartley's Crocodile farm/zoo (highly rec'd) and one day on the reef. Unfortunately the coral at Low Isles is bleached and the reef has suffered. If you're planning a trip to the reef look into the outer reef. Lovely part of Australia! Thank you for our stay!”
“Beautiful peaceful townhouse in a gated complex, with its own pool and direct access to the beach. We spent many hours lounging outside on the day bed with books or gin and tonics or both. Being around 4km from the centre of town was nice - made it nice and quiet, but still easy to pop in to town for shopping or activities or dinner or drinks using the frequent local shuttles (who will pick up/drop off at the door). We also rented bikes for a few days - it's nice and flat, with mostly separated bike paths to get into town, or you can ride all the way along the firmly packed sand of the beach. Having the cleaner come after we left so we didn't need to clean ourselves was a delightful bonus. Thanks!”
