Recent guest reviews
Close to town and 4 mile beach.Plenty of parking. The operators Amanda and Peter are simply amazing. Stayed here 2 years ago, and it got even better. This time we stayed 10 days. Will remember the time fondly.
Firstly, we have to begin this review by thanking both Peter and Amanda, who were so welcoming, caring, helpful and friendly. From the minute we arrived to the minute we left you both went above and beyond for us and it made us feel so welcome. The outrigger is very well maintained and looked after, the rooms were great. Clean and spacious. The kitchen was fully equipped for anything we needed and bathrooms included both a washer and drier if needed. Beds were comfy and rooms were cool with working air con. We couldn’t fault it. The apartments are 5 minutes walk to everything, the harbour, the beach, Macrossan street (where the majority of bars and restaurants are found), the beach is a stones throw away. If you want somewhere situated within walking distance from practically everything in town then this is the place. At reception there are dozens of leaflets for a huge variety of day trips and reef trips. Any trips that we booked, we booked through Amanda, we even got a discount for our trips scuba diving. She really cared about getting us the best experience for our money, phoning up the company we did our dives with regularly to check weather conditions. Whilst we stayed in Port Douglas we booked everything through Amanda and I recommend every guest do the same. The level of care you get, you don’t get that booking direct.
Just 10 minutes walk to the main restaurant street. Room was perfect and the hosts Amanda & Peter very helpful. Now they have NBN the wifi was extra fast since our last stay. As usual the pool was kept perfectly clean.
We recently booked a holiday with Amanda and Peter, and from day one when we contacted them about some special needs, they were so helpful, we were made to feel that nothing was any trouble at all. They took care of our requirements with two separate apartments, stayed open late on the first day to welcome us, and then helped us book tours, suggested places to go and visit, and generally went out of their way to make sure our stay was fantastic. The rooms are exceptionally well maintained, clean, and had everything we needed for fully self contained apartments. In a great position, close to the main shopping and restaurant area, easy to get to and from, a short 7 minute walk to the beach, definitely a place for families as well. A place for your family to stay. You won’t be disappointed.
It's the thoughtfulness and genuinely caring attitude of the hosts that last with you well after you have checked out of the apartments. They become more like friends than business operators. The Outrigger has all the creature comforts you would expect. It's a short walk to the main street and marina. There are a multitude of accommodation choices in Port Douglas but the Outrigger is a great choice.
What a wonderful find! Our hosts Amanda and Peter were great, they were very welcoming to our family, particularly the children who loved both the accommodation offerings (pool, toys, beach toys, pool toys) and the great crafts with Amanda and Peter. Creating a great holiday is what they really can do and whilst we didn't need any tours etc. they certainly assisted with a booking mix up ensuring our mini holiday was not spoiled. The accommodation itself was wonderful, spacious rooms and equipped so you can cook if you wish to do so. Clean and fresh, very well managed. Thanks Amanda and Peter- we did enjoy our stay and your hospitality , the kids loved it too!
From the moment I booked, Amanda (the proprietor), has been so helpful. She basically arranged our itinerary for us — of course we had our choices but being a local, she knew the best deals and the best companies and what MUST be done in PD! Everything she recommended did not disappoint! The weather turned bad as soon as we arrived so our booked tour for the Great Barrier Reef was on a wait and see... Amanda was on top of everything, updating us often. She had to rearrange all the bookings cause we wanted to extend our stay to be able to go on the reef (thereby cancelling or Cairns stay which was totally fine). We booked a 2 bedroom apartment with a full kitchen... it was big for the 3 of us so that was great, there was room to spread out. It was VERY CLEAN. ACs worked perfectly, fans also. Kitchen was complete so we were able to do grocery shopping and cook our own breakfast daily (and a dinner). You don’t really need a car in PD as everything is walking distance from the Outrigger but if you do, go through Amanda! She got us a super good rate (almost half off from my online booking) on a car from a local company. We loved our stay and we hope we can come back soon!!!
We stayed here for 10days, Amanda and Peter are the most hospitable hosts you could ask for, friendly and accommodating.Our apartment was lovely and comfortable, Amanda booked our tours and site seeing for us, she went above and beyond to make sure we got the best deal often bargaining with companies lol We will definitely be back and highly recommend xx
We stayed 8 nights in Port Douglas and the Port Douglas Outrigger apartments was a perfect spot for our holiday. It is in a quiet location with a lovely pool, bbq, and fully equipped kitchen for when we wanted to make our breakfast. The complex is a very short walk from the main shopping and dining precinct and can easily be reached if you do not have a car. Our apartment was clean and our bed very comfortable and Amanda and Peter were very welcoming and helpful throughout in booking a reef tour and a trip to the crocodile farm.
Cannot fault this well run apartment operation, stayed here for a week in April 2018. Central to Port Douglas, walking distance of the town and all facilities. Very clean and fully appointed apartment , with plenty of space. Lovely pool. Wonderful hospitality from Amanda and Peter who go to enormous trouble to make sure guests are happy and who will organize any of the many tours and restaurants that are available in PortDouglas We had one the best relaxing holidays ever and fully intend to come back to the happy Outrigger apartments.
