Port Douglas Accommodation – The Whitehouse Guest Review
“Ah… the charm of the White House Port Douglas. About 1989 I was working in Port Douglas at a major resort as a consultant and liked the area. Then in 1993 I invited a friend to taste the experience of a Port Douglas holiday. We chose the White House holiday apartments because of its proximity to the village and the serenity of the accommodation.
We immediately liked the “Queenslander” style building with its cool clean lines and tranquil pool. The staff were friendly and efficient and could not be faulted for their service. The White House has an old world charm that is lost on the new super structures. The leafy surroundings mean even in the hottest days there is ample shade and a cool breeze always comes in from the ocean. The sunrises are breathtaking and long beach walks means a healthy breakfast appetite that can be satisfied along the nearby beachfront.
The village shops are merely a short walk down the main street and the ocean almost across the street and through the park.
Well my friend became my wife and we returned in 1995 for our honeymoon and totally enjoyed ourselves. But a return trip to Port Douglas in 2000 was not the same when we didn’t stay at the White House. We missed the friendly service and the familiar surrounds.All was back to normal in 2010 when once again we holidayed at Port Douglas and stayed at the White House. Moral of the story: Ah… the charm of the White House.”

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.”

“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).”

“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!

Once again, Port Douglas emerged unscathed from a tropical cyclone. The only sign of the high winds which we experienced was a carpet of leaves, twigs and branches, plus an occasional tree on the way in to Port Douglas. Here at The White House, I think I could have built a new tree from the leaves in the swimming pool! But they’re all gone now and the pool is sparkling again.
Our thoughts are with the people 220 km away who felt the full force of the cyclone and lost homes and memories. I can’t begin to imagine the courage it would take to start all over again.

While southern media outlets are reporting about the impact of turbid floodwaters on the Great Barrier Reef, locals and tourists to Port Douglas are experiencing the best underwater visibility ever seen, according to the local paper, Port Douglas and Mossman Gazette.
Claims of a possible explosion of algal blooms appear unfounded, with visibility of up to 20 metres recorded at Agincourt Reef in the past few weeks.
In fact, Port Douglas has been having terrific weather lately, with many tourists shaking their heads and saying “what wet season??”
Even if it does rain, that’s the best time to see the rainforest – the sounds and smells are amplified and it’s a magical experience.

We stayed at the White House apartments for just 4 days and wish it could have been for longer. This is a charming, colonial-style building minutes from the spectacular 4-Mile Beach, and less than 10 mins walk from the main area of Port Douglas.
