Holiday Accommodation at Port Douglas – Guest Review

“We love “The White House” !!  The best place to stay while in Port Douglas, whether you are looking to go non stop while in town or simply to go into rest and relax mode and really unwind.
The old Queenslander style of architecture set amidst all the lovely greenery, which attracts the birds so well, is a total delight. Apartments are very well equipped and the balcony is just the best spot to while away a few hours with a book in your hand and coffee or wine to hand as the days slip gently by.
The pool area has been very thoughtfully set out, with full protection from the strong north queensland sun and there is everything to hand for a very enjoyable barbecue beside the pool.
You can wander off over the road, through the paperbarks to Four Mile Beach, passing spots for light snacks and coffee on the way and a place for a full meal as well.  This beach really buzzes at time of Carnivale, the family beach day is wonderful – something for everyone. Interesting shopping and eating in the main part of Port.  Book a spot at “The White House” and enjoy it all.”

Guest Review after a recent Port Douglas Holiday

“We stayed at The White House Apartments, Port Douglas in May, 2012. Apart from the website, we had no idea what to expect on our arrival. We were impressed immediately – we were offered an upgrade to the penthouse, overlooking the pool! The apartment was furnished in typical Queenslander style – very modern, clean and stylish and we had the luxury of multiple verandahs. The pool was surrounded by lush, green tropical foliage, which provided a lovely ambience while swimming. The beach was a very short walk across a park and the shopping centre was one block away. We didn’t have our car, but took advantage of the community bus several times during our stay – the bus stop was a short stroll away. Margaret was very welcoming and helpful, accepting our luggage before book-in time, arranging our reef trip and multiple transfers, as well as suggesting restaurant venues. We enjoyed a wonderful week at The White House Apartments and would not hesitate to return there or recommend them to others.”

With so much Port Douglas holiday Accommodation on offer, it is difficult to make a great choice.  Read what recent guests had to say after staying with us at the Apartments at The Whitehouse and enjoying their Port Douglas Holiday Accommodation.

“We recently stayed at the Whitehouse in Port Douglas and really enjoyed the experience. We loved sitting on our balcony, relaxing. It was a quiet and restful place to just sit, have a drink and relax. The bedroom was great and, more importantly, the bed was comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and included a washing machine and dryer – as well as enough washing powder to do a full load of washing! Essential for us as we’d just come from a week in the Daintree Rainforest. The kitchen and lounge area was fabulous. The couches were comfortable and while we didn’t spend a lot of time watching tv, the screen was big enough to see from the kitchen. And the kitchen was great – a full sized fridge, dishwasher and more than enough plates, glasses and cutlery for the two of us.

But best of all, was the warm greeting we received when we arrived and the fantastic advice we got about where to eat and things to do in the Port Douglas area. This, more than anything, made us instantly feel at home, comfortable and confident about getting around Port Douglas. Oh, and where this is situated is really good. An easy walk into town to go out for dinner, breakfast or lunch if you can’t be bothered to rustle something up yourselves in the fully equipped kitchen. And it’s only one block from the four mile beach so strolling after dinner or before breakfast is an easy thing to accomplish if you stay here. I’d highly recommend staying here. We’ll definitely be going back to stay at the Apartments as the Whitehouse on our next visit to Port Douglas.”

“Staying at Apartments at the White House for us is what a holiday is all about, relaxing, trouble free, enjoyable and affordable. The rooms were spacious, well maintained and the hostess very friendly and helpful . The location of this beautiful tropical property gives you the opportunity easily access all that Port Douglas has to offer. About a  1 minute walk through the vibrant front garden and lightly treed park gets you to the stunning Four Mile Beach. Less than 5 minutes at an unstressed pace will get you to the main street with its array of casual eateries, fine restaurants, fashionable shops, tourism, entertainment as well as all the usual businesses needed for day to day living. The Marina is no further if you decide to head that way to enjoy any of the many boating based activities. Again the eating in the area is excellent as is the sunset and the cooling breeze as you sip on refreshments. What a great place to stay in beautiful Port Douglas.”

Staying at The Whitehouse Port Douglas meant they enjoyed comfortable Port Douglas Apartments accommodation in a tropical location.

“Recently we decided to visit far north Queensland to escape the dreaded winter chill in Melbourne. Everyone we spoke to said we should stay at the Whitehouse at Port Douglas. Imagine our disappointment to find that it was completely booked out at the time of our trip. Still we managed to sneak into the grounds during our stay. We were blown away. We will DEFINITELY stay there next time we visit which hopefully will be very soon. It had everything. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. And as for the apartments, gardens and pools well as expected they were 6 star (I think that is as high as the rating goes – otherwise it gets a better rating).”

Port Douglas is the ideal North Queensland holiday destination and Apartments at The White House offers perfect holiday apartments in the heart of Port Douglas.  This is what a recent guest had to say after enjoying Port Douglas hospitality at the Whitehouse Port Douglas holiday apartments.

We loved the peaceful relaxed ambiance that the Whitehouse gives.  It is not a big resort and really has that personal touch.  We felt like the only holiday makers on site and Margaret, the owner was available to help with so much knowledge of the area – restaurants and trips alike.

Port Douglas is just the place to go to get away from it all – there is so much to do or do nothing at all!  A lovely relaxing holiday and time to unwind in paradise!

Perfect location for Port Douglas Accommodation

Monday, May 31st, 2010

The location is one of the best in Port Douglas – Four mile beach across the road from us after you enjoy a beautiful walk through the park. The White House Apartments are in the town centre so you can walk very easily to a great selection of cafes and restaurants as well as the boutique shopping and the main Coles super market.

The Port Douglas apartments are very comfortable and clean. Margaret, the manager, is relaxed, friendly, and professional. I’ve been staying nearly every year for 11 years, tried a few other places, but the White House is best Port Douglas Hotel Accommodation.
