    This property was just what my mum and I were looking for, light and airy, clean and tidy and character - not a stuffy, identical looking hotel room! They had all the supplies we might possibly want - films, beach towels, deck chairs carts and bicycles which we made use of. The staff were amazing from the first contact and if we returned to the area, we would definitely want stay here again. Thank you to all the ladies involved!

    Booked a Superior Studio Apartment with Superior Sea View for three nights. Arrived to find the lovely ladies of By the Sea ready with a smile and a plethora of information for us. I cannot fault a single thing about this place – not even the 39 steps up to our spectacular room. Because, let’s face it, stair exercises are good for us! We loved our stay so much at By the Sea I really didn’t want to check out. The apartment is spacious with high ceilings, a lovely balcony and views of the beach. Comfy bed I had the best night’s sleep in and a great shower. The pool is a lovely spot to spend an afternoon relaxing – it’s quiet and private and has a beautiful garden. The inclusions are incredible – everything from bikes, beach furniture, board games, and body boards to blue tooth speakers, books, blenders and buckets! Check out the full list of complimentary extras on their website. Plus there’s free onsite, undercover parking and Wi-Fi – big bonuses! The location is absolutely perfect. It’s a short stroll to the beach for a nice walk or a swim. Or there’s the walk up to the lookout (a must do for spectacular views). You’re right on Macrossan Street – filled with all the shops, restaurants and bars. Highly recommended Port Douglas accommodation and hope to be returning in the near future.

    Well set out, colour scheme was very bright and relaxing, pictures and ornaments were thoughtful and cute making the unit somewhere to relax and enjoy. Furniture servicable but very comfortable. Loved the bright accents throughout including the kitchen crockery. Staff were very friendly, helpful and inviting. Loved being here.

    Port Douglas by the Beach

    We loved our stay! It is definitely a family friendly place, but we loved being almost right on the beach and were very comfy. The ladies who run the place can help with tours and tips. It is a fun place to stay!
