We have always stayed here on our visits to Port Douglas. The accommodation is clean, adequate for a couple in a self contained studio apartment. Hosts David and Joyce are very friendly and obliging. The key attractions for us is that the retreat is quiet,...More
The Port Douglas Retreat was a decent choice. If it weren't for the pool area I wouldn't have scored it as high. The grill area was well used but it would be nice if there were some plastic dishes in our rooms to use instead...More
My wife and I stayed here for a week and the stay was very nice. Rooms are basic but it worked. The room was clean. Only thing might be better was the shower in the bathroom. It was hard to get water out - but...More
We were very happy with our stay at Port Douglas Retreat. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a nice porch seating area. We were on the ground floor which made accessing the room with a pram very easy. We were able to rent a...More

Port Douglas retreat is very close to the shopping and eating areas in Port Douglas. You can walk everywhere, 5 min walk to beach and same to shops. The pool area is lovely with plenty of sun loungers, 2 bbq, 2 tables and chairs to eat your meal and also a fridge to put your beer or wine in. Clean toilets by the pool also so you don't have to run up to your room. The managers are very obliging without being intrusive. The kitchen facilities are basic, toaster, saucepans, frying pan, hot plate, microwave and fridge, sink but very small work bench area. We are ex Port Douglas residents who stay here when we visit each year. We stay here because of the position and also the price is reasonable. If we don't eat out we usually cook meat on the bbq and take salad down to pool area and eat there. Visit the "Tin Shed" for sunset views and meals at reasonable prices and the surf club for lovely lunch or dinner by the beach. Try the tempura prawn roll there. You will have a fabulous time.

We could not get a park on the premises, but no trouble getting a park outside. When you book, ask for a park at that time. A little inconvenient, but the accommodation is reasonably priced and off the main street.
