My friend and I recently spent a week here and were really spoiled. The managers couldn't do enough for us, even champagne in the fridge when we arrived. The unit was set up brilliantly with 2 bedrooms, both with their own ensuite bathroom.The pool area was really lovely and relaxing. Martin booked all our tours for us and was so helpful and friendly. A very short stroll to the beach, a cafe and the surf club bistro. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in Port Douglas.

Stayed: January 2018, travelled with friends

Fantastic location close to the town centre,,restaurants and the beach.
Our stay was made even more memorable due to the outstanding service provided by Martin , the owner.. On our trip back, when the airport shuttle we ordered did not turn up at 3 am,Martin drove us to the airport in his car and we managed to get our flight.We would highly recommend the spacious, clean apartment and this property if you have to stay in Port Douglas.

Stayed at the Mowbray 2017 Dec for ~5 days.

It's in an excellent location - right at the beach and minutes from the main street of the town. The property is wonderful with nice, spacious rooms, AC for every room, all the supplies you could want, and a great balcony! The best thing about the stay was Martin, the owner. He was the ultimate host! He helped us with organizing events, reservations, and plans. He was very helpful with anything we needed with our rooms. He graciously drove us to our restaurant when we first got to the hotel and were tired and hungry. And, when our airport shuttle didn't show at 2:45AM in the morning, Martin drove us all the way to the Cairns airport!

Would 100% recommend staying here!

Our family stay at the apartments was exceptional. The apartments were a great size for 4 adults (parents + 2 brothers) and everything in the apartment was in great shape. Every other review is spot on with how amazing the location is , and the cleanliness and comfort level of the apartments.

Martin was so friendly, so helpful and went above and beyond at every juncture. He even woke up at 3am to personally drive us to the airport when our shuttle bus didn't arrive!

Thank you so much to both Martin and Theresa for a wonderful stay!

Recently returned to the UK having had a week at Mowbray by the Sea as part of a month in Australia with our young family (2 children, 3.5 & 9 months).

The apartments are perfect for families, with a great location close to the beach, the centre of Port Douglas and the harbour for GBR tours. The pool is fantastic - our three year old loved it, as well as chatting with the owner, Martin!

Right from our arrival Martin was helpful, friendly and always keen to pass the time of day and offer advice (special thanks for the Outer Reef Tour recommendation!).

Highly recommended.

Stayed: December 2017
