Wasn't too sure about this place on first entering the office but quickly felt at home. Very nice pool area, but could have been swept up a bit more often. The apartment was a spacious 2 bedroom. Nice & bright. Somewhat older but in good repair. Decent walking distance to town and the trail to 4 mile beach. Very quiet when we were there so we had the pool all to ourselves. Got good advice on dive trips and arranged all our trips. Advice was correct as the dive trip was amazing and came off exactly on time. i would def stay here again. Good value for the size and amenities.Since they are apartments you do not get maid service everyday but there is a washer and dryer in the apartment.

We stayed for two nights at the Lychee Tree in November 2009. Our apartment was extremely spacious and well equipped. Located slightly out of town, it is just a couple of minutes walk to the famous 4-mile beach, and an easy 10 minute walk into the centre of the Port Douglas (a relatively small town/village).

Ample parking is available next to each of the apartment units, and there is a decent pool and BBQ area. Plenty of information on tours and the local area is available, and the staff seemed friendly and helpful.

Lychee Tree represented good value for money and I would consider staying there again.

This is a great little spot about 10 mins walk from the main drag in PD. The Unit was spacious, clean and had a great kitchen. The pool was also a really nice area. Rodney, the owner, is also really good on helping out on where to go/what to do which made our stay in PD a great one.

Would definitely go back.

Stayed at Lychee tree in early December and found it to be a good deal. The place is clean, has a nice pool, apartment was fine for our purposes and staff very friendly and helpful. We had two couples in two bedroom apartment in back of building. There was parking adjacent to room, A/C in bedroom, and washer/dryer which was timely for us. Lu and Ronald were friendly with lots of tips on activities. Rental bikes were a bit shaky but they were also cheap.
The price was very reasonable and the quality was consistent with price range. Don't go looking for luxury but rather for clean, friendly, place to stay.

My Husband and I stayed here for 7 nights based on the great reviews from Trip Advisor and the "Stay 7 pay 5" promotion advertised on their website. Having stayed at a couple of different 3 star accomodations in Port over the years, within the same price range, we were a little dissapointed with this place.
We were given a 2 bedroom appartment, which was spacious and clean enough, good wardobe space, nice sized bathroom with washer and dryer, with a well appointed but tiny kitchen. There was just enough living space for the 2 of us, I can not imagine 4 adults being comfortable here. I don't think we had a good nights sleep for the whole duration of our stay, as both of us had bed springs in our backs and rock hard pillows to contend with. One very uncomfotable couch and one equally uncomfortable arm chair made watching a movie a bit of an effort. There was a small TV with a video player in the bedroom, but unsurprisingly we were unable to find any one who still had video cassete tapes for rent! The standard 5 channels on the LCD in the living room we're cutting in and out of sound the whole time, but we weren't bothered with watching TV anyway.
The pool and surrounds were pleasant enough, quiet and well maintained, though the front reception area absolutely reaked of ciggarette smoke every time we went in. As the owners were on holiday, we found the replacement staff to be quite disorganised and slow, but friendly enough. We found the location to be just right for us as we had a car, a 5-10min walk to 4 mile beach, and a 5min drive to the main strip.
Overall we thought this place was lacking the essential relaxing atmosphere we'd come to expect from a Port Douglas appartment, and will choose somewhere else for our holiday to Port next year.

LycheeTree, Manager at Lychee Tree Holiday Apartments, responded to this reviewResponded 4 December 2009

It is always unfortunate when a guest chooses to air their dissatisfaction through a website rather than in person. Had we been aware of any problems with this apartment we would have gone out of our way to make sure our guests left happy.

With regards to comments re bedding and VCR, these have been passed on to the owner of the apartment for their consideration.

Another guest who was staying at the same time unfortunately did stink out our reception area everytime he came in with cigarette smell - the smell fortunately checked out when he did.

We are a 3 1/2 star property and offer simple, clean apartments at reasonable prices. If you are looking for all the extras, a four star or above rated property may suit you better.

We do thank you for taking the time to comment though, which helps us to maintain our high standard experienced by many other guests
