The apartments are perfect for a Port Douglas getaway if your wanting good location, avoiding huge resort crowds and wanting an uber hip pad.
The decor is spot on for a tropical apartment, the apartment was super clean and comfortable. A great location - short stroll to either Macrossan st or 4 Mile beach.
What really made our stay was how obliging the property manager Doug was. So nice to support local. Highly recommend this little gem.
Retro Is the perfect place to be in port douglas. Its clean, nice, cosy and has everything you need. From washing machine, dryer, comfy bed, ironing, coffemachine, beach towels, bathing towels, its all there. They even have netflix.
I suggest rent some bycicles in town ($16per day) and easy cruise around.
Doug is a care taking person as well.
Lovely place ans if i come back then this is my place to be.
When you want to go diving i suggest ABC divers, super professional and they take pride of having the least amount of divers possible. Slightly more expensive but its definitely worth it (i mean, its not every day you dive here is it ;-)..)
This is the best place to stay in Port Douglas. Beautifully renovated with sophistication and style. Complete with relaxing swing chair, an awesome coffee machine to compete with Melbourne's fussiest and even Netflix! Just a short walk to shops, bars, restaurants and beach. This amazing apartment has more than you need to feel relaxed and perfectly at home with the perfect amount of retro fun lux.
I was one of the first guests at Retro Port Douglas and highly suggest you stay here! It truly felt like a home I could live in, and I even tried to extend from 4 nights to 6 but unfortunately someone was already booked right after me. Clean, newly furnished, lots of amenities from expected (like wifi and washer) to pleasant extras (netflix, Bose speaker, espresso machine). Super soft sheets and a comfortable bed made for a lovely stay. Excellent apartment, I would definitely book again if I find myself in Port Douglas!
Everything about Retro Palms was superb.
Beautiful "Retro" furnishings, comfortable bed, fully stocked kitchen, balcony with hanging basket chair, balcony overlooks the pool and across to the park. There's a coffee maker, great washing, machine, Wi-Fi, Netflix, it's close to beach and only a short walk to shopping and restaurants.
Dealing with the owner was a pleasure. I can't recommend this apartment more highly.
