Port Douglas Accommodation

Saturday, February 14th, 2015

Are you a visitor looking for Port Douglas accommodation from which to base your far North Queensland tropical holiday?

The White House Port Douglas Holiday Apartments is the resort to launch your adventure to the ancient Daintree Rainforest.  The building is an internally remodelled suite of apartments that offers a clean modern take on resort living while retaining the style and architectural trappings of an “Old Queenslander”.

The Daintree and Great Barrier Reef is the only World Heritage listed area in the world where two such ecosystems exist side by side – the magnificent underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef and the lush tropical rainforests of the Daintree. Both systems meet at the coastal lowland area between the Daintree and Bloomfield Rivers.

The southern Daintree region stretches from the rainforest walks of Mossman Gorge on the Mossman River northwards to the Daintree River and includes rainforested coastal ranges, pristine beaches, tropical farmlands, a wildlife sanctuary, horse-rides, tropical gardens and tiny, historic Daintree Village. This is the last settlement before crossing the Daintree River into the Daintree Rainforest.

Wildlife of every kind flourishes on the Daintree River and its banks especially has become a haven for bird watchers. 

Riverboat tours are a fabulous way to view the forest and its inhabitants. The estuarine crocodiles are a major attraction. During winter, daily visitors arrive to see crocodiles sunning themselves on the riverbanks, and view the rich and varied rainforest flora and fauna. The wetland forests are also fascinating ecoscapes to behold.

Come and see us at our tour desk. We can help plan an action-packed itinerary. There are excellent guided rainforest walks, river cruises and wildlife viewing around the area. The all-wheel drive guided tours take you to parts otherwise inaccessible and unknown to self-drive adventurers.

Return after a day of adventure, and refresh yourself in the heated salt pools of the White House Port Douglas Holiday Apartments. A long cold drink on the verandah of your apartment in the early evening will be well-deserved and feel very satisfying. Book now and find out just how special our Port Douglas accommodation is. Don’t forget to bring your pith hat.

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

The White House Holiday Apartments offer superb Port Douglas self contained accommodation. Choose from one, two or three bedroom apartments. These apartments are ideal for couples wanting a barmy tropical escape, or equally, for older families who have come to holiday in Port Douglas to experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest. If you are travelling in a group, or you are an independent traveller who is weary of backpacker accommodation, why not find other like minded individuals and couples to share a night or three in this magnificent accommodation.

Our delightful self-catering apartments provide fully appointed kitchens with all the mod cons – dishwasher, microwave and plenty of benchtops for culinary inspiration to spread out on. This is perfect for families and independent travellers looking for self-catering accommodation. There’s a Coles store just four blocks away. A separate laundry is included – which is essential for longer visits.

The spacious living areas extend to the verandah areas for even greater indoor/outdoor entertainment space. For larger families, this can be a bonus for members who enjoy their own space.

What’s more, the famous Four Mile Beach is just one hundred metres away, which makes it more than convenient for an evening stroll, or an outing for the family, although the on-site salt water pool is a favorite spot for guests. The lush tropical plantings and serene waterfall create a very relaxed setting.

Not far in the opposite direction are the restaurants, boutique shopping and Marina Mirage, also just a short stroll away. Amongst the choice of eateries you will find something to satisfy most tastes and budgets, from a humble takeaway meal of fish and chips on the beach, or higher-end restaurant experiences and everything in between, including a range of Asian, middle Eastern and European kitchens.

If you are thinking of Port Douglas self contained accommodation for your Port Douglas escapades, then the White House Holiday Apartments should get close to the top of your list. Call us to book your Port Douglas Self Contained Accommodation at the White House Holiday Apartments.

Port Douglas Holiday Accommodation

Friday, August 17th, 2012

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.”
