I thoroughly recommend the Lychee Tree. Lychee Tree was a superb place to stay with easy access to Daintree National Park, Great Barrier Reef, beaches and other attractions. The apartment was a good size, well equipped and included a washing machine and tumble dryer. Lychee Tree is a family run business and Grant made helpful recommendations from the initial booking and throughout our stay. An added bonus was being able to walk into Port Douglas and to the wonderful Four Mile beach from the apartment.
Grant was really helpful during our stay. The accommodation was perfect for our needs - particularly when we had travelled half way around the world and needed time to recover before seeing sights! The pool was really quiet and we enjoyed this immensely. The apartments are close to the beach and we enjoyed walking along the beach into Port Douglas most days. (There is a bus for people who are less mobile). The apartment was spotlessly clean. We would definitely return if ever back in that area! Thanks Grant.
We had a great stay at Lychee during August/September for just over 2 weeks. The apartments were very well equipped, great comfy bed, had all the utensils and facilities needed for a lengthy stay. Ideal location and run by the ever friendly host Grant.
Absolutely loved this quiet, clean, comfortable, spacious and modern apartment. Everything you needed for a hassle free stay. Within walking distance of one of the only swimmable beaches on the east coast and the very knowledge and friendly Grant, what more could you need! Thank you.
We stayed a week in August and were very happy with the 2-Bed appt we had. The unit was comfortable, large bathroom, laundry facilities in the unit, well equipped kitchen, and even has a carport for each unit. Close to other lodging sites, but still was very quiet and peaceful. Location is not far at all to walk into town for dinner or shopping. Grant (the owner/care-taker) was great as well. Really cared that we had fun and made sure our stay was very comfortable. Fun loving guy and gave us several coupons for discounts at local attractions that we wanted to visit. The pool on premises was nice as well. Would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay in Port Douglas.
A little gem of a place in Port Douglas Run by Grant, a very friendly man. Cottages are well equipped with a kitchen, washer and dryer. 20 minute walk to the convenience store and restaurants. Highly recommended
Decided to stay closer to the outer Reef and then chose Lychee Tree. The property is absolutely well maintained and the rooms are spacious, clean and well stocked with everything you need for daily living. The one thing to be careful of is the ceiling fans - if you are taller than 6ft then there is a real risk. Port Douglas is a great location for doing activities at the Great Barrier Reef (separately reviewed), doing a day trip to Daintree Forest and activities at Cairns (we did the bungee jump).
Pros : Rooms were large Linens crisp & clean Lashings of hot water Bathroom newly revamped. Lovely large shower. Cons : Free internet slow & limited to 500mb per day. Had to keep logging in. Oven dirty - had to clean Kitchen area tired . Needs a revamp& a coat of paint. These apartments are individually owned so I suppose it's pot luck what you get. Grant the manager was a great guy , nothing appeared to be too much trouble
We have stayed here twice for large extended family holidays (16-17 of us) and we love it. Grant is an amazing manager. He is friendly, approachable and nothing is any trouble for him. The units are clean and comfortable and provide a great base to chill and enjoy the relaxed, beautiful place that Port Douglas is. The Lychee Tree is close enough to the town centre to walk to or if you wish it is only a couple of minutes by car. The pool and bbq area is great. Nothing to fault at all - highly recommended and a place we would definitely go back to again and again.
Port Douglas, no matter what time of year you go, is on the upper end of many peoples budget. But, having done loads of shopping around we were so pleased that we booked here. From the initial communication about check in time and the wonderful welcome by Grant, you really do feel at home here. We were fortunate to have a 2 bedroom unit and were amazed by all the little touches that has been done. A/C was in making our arrival a cool one. The place was immaculately clean with everything you could possibly need. All you have to do is a bit of food and condiment shopping and you're ready to enjoy this excellent site. The pool area is one of the best we have had since staring our travels 6 weeks ago. Beautifully clean, family friendly and even had floats and pool toys for the kids. Port Douglas is just 15 minute walk away. You can reach the closest beach in 5 or 6 minutes just across the road and the amazing Marina and sunset views at the far end of town. If you are spending loads of time on line wondering where to stay in Port Douglas then stop searching and book here.
