Great location to beach & walking distance to town...Apartment had eveything we needed but needs a little TLC and could do with a better clean. Pool also needs a little more cleaning including the toilet area located within the pool.

This place has everything you need for relaxing holiday by the beach: spacious clean apartment, warm outdoor pool, even free equipment to take down to the beach including beach-chairs and enough plastic buckets and shovels to build your dream sand castle! All this and only a few minutes walk to both the beach and the main strip. Andrew and Melissa...

Great location to beach and shops and restaurants. Manager/owner is lovely. Units are in need of a little TLC. Has everything a family needs on a beach holiday. 2nd TV and better airconditioning would have made our stay more comfortable.

Rated 8/45 (4*) on Trip Advisor, we stayed in a spacious, well-appointed 2-bed, 2-bath apartment which offered good facilities, storage, a well-equipped kitchen, and a laundry room (washer and tumble drier) – plus a large balcony. The communal pool is large, long enough to have a proper swim, and well equipped with beds etc. No lift but I believe this...

This is an ideal accommodation for the right reasons. First, the location is perfect for swimming at Four-Mile Beach, walking and shopping in Port Douglas, and booking trips day-trips to the Great Barrier Reef and Daintree rainforest. Second, the apartments (and the swimming pool area) are clean, well maintained, and comfortably furnished. Third, Andrew and Melissa are extraordinarily kind and...

Mowbray by the sea was perfectly positioned for our family of 5. We had a 2 bedroom apartment for 8 nights and really enjoyed it. The Manager Andrew was really friendly, accommodating and helpful. The Apartment it'self was spacious enough, it wasn't 5 star accommodation but neither was it shabby. The pool was located directly off our unit which was...

Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 bedroom unit at Mowbray by the Sea. The complex is not too large and has a long narrow warm pool. It is a 2 minute walk to 4 mile beach and 5 minute walk to Mossman St which is one of the main shopping/eating 'strips' in Port Douglas- so I would say...

High rated apartment and we were not disappointed. My wife, two children and I really enjoyed our week here in July.
