On my first visit to Port Douglas, Alex and I stayed at Macrossan House Boutique Holiday Apartments. The appeal of these 4 Star apartments are that they are located right on the main street of Port Douglas, so they are perfectly located to lots of cafes, bars and restaurants, and are a short walk to the beach and the harbour.
Unique Quality: The rooms are set back from the street, so we had no problem with noise. We had a one bedroom, self contained apartment, which was plenty big enough for the two of us and had a balcony that looked down over the pool. The apartment was clean and modern, and the owners were friendly and very helpful with offering advice on local tours.
If you are looking for a place to stay with a fancy pool to lie beside, then Macrossan House is not for you. It has only a small pool, and the water was freezing when we were there in June (yes, it was winter, but is still warm in this part of the world). If you don't care about the pool and want somewhere to stay in the heart of town then it could be a good option for you.
