      Historical Traveler Reviews Nautilus Holiday Apartments Port Douglas

      Loved It!


      We wanted an affordable holiday & saw a 'special' price online. It worked out 5 adults (in our 40's, 50's) were able to stay 7 nights for only $25 each a night. Bargin! It was all so easy to book, & Ange & Matt the managers were so friendly, easygoing but professional. The rooms were spotless, very comfortable & not noisy even though they were on a main road, as they were set back a bit. We had a 3 bedroom room, which had it's own little laundry. (Were able to dry our beach towels off in the dryer). The hotel is in a great location only a five minute stroll to the beautiful 4 mile beach, and a 10-15 minute walk to the main shops. We all love walking so it was great. We were easily able to book all tours through the managers free of charge and they were just so helpful. We had hired a car which made travelling very easy but they had bikes for hire if you needed them. It was great to see them eating out locally as we knew then we were eating in the 'right' places....with the locals. The hotel pool was a little small but we only used it once as we were too busy & preferred to swim at the beach anyway.

      We would definitely stay there agin & would certainly recommend it.

      Excellent !!


      We stayed at the Nautilus for 2 weeks in August 2006. The Managers are extremely helpful and very friendly. They gave us sound advice regarding tours and Port Douglas in general and booking tours was so easy as they can arrange them all for you. The apartments are clean, spacious, and the laundry room is a bonus ! We would love to stay there again and will recommend them to friends and family.

      What a great place


      I have just returned from my stay at the Nautilus Holiday Apartments and loved it. The couple that are in charge where wonderful to myself and my daughter and where very helpful to us. The tropical pool was lovely and a big hit with my daughter. The rooms are lovely and enjoyed very much staying there. I would recommend anyone to stay there and already thinking of another holiday there in the near future.

      Nautilus now has new Managers


      We recently stayed at Nautilus holiday apartments. It was just taken over on 1st July 2006 by a lovely young couple who are full of enthusiasium and advise. They recommended so many great places and were so friendly and helpful when it came to booking our tours. We also loved the fact we could book our tours at reception and just charge it to our room account.

      We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment that was light and airy, fully self contained and having airconditioning in every room was great, there were also fans.

      It was so convenient to have 2 bathrooms and a laundry to do some of our own washing.

      The tropical pool was very nice and the use of the BBQ facilities proved to be very popular.

      Could be better


      We stayed at Nautilus for 6 nights in March in a 3 bedroom apartment. There was only one double bed. The other 2 rooms had single beds which didn't really work for our group of 3 couples, but would certainly work better for families. The apartment was well equipped but the air conditioner in our room didn't work and the walls in the lounge area were badly damaged with paint off everywhere. Also we found the management unfriendly. The pool was small but very nice, and the apartment was within easy walking distance to town.

      Port Douglas was nice. Highly recommend a trip to the Low Isles with Quicksilver Wavedancer. Awesome staff, very professional and well worth the money!

      Nice apartment


      I stayed here for 4 night in Feb and had a great time. Managers were very helpful and apartment was a very spacious 1 bedroom with tile floors. I paid 85 AUD from and that is a very good price for what I got.

      The apartment is located a 10 minute walk from town. There are a couple of restaurants and a convenience store 1 block away. There is also a local shuttle stop in front of the apartment.

      I recommend this apartment and would stay here again.

      Exceptional Value


      Have just returned from spending a week at the Nautilus Appartments in Port Douglas.

      I booked these appartments online, and was somewhat apprehensive, as to the standard, as they were a considerably lot cheaper than other accomodation in the area (700 A$- 300) for the week.

      I needn't have worried, the appartment consists of a Large open plan lounge with fully equipt kitchen

      with microwave, oven/hob, Fridge/Freezer and all utensils.

      It has TV and DVD, a veranda with table and chairs, and also comes with a washing machine and tumble drier, all inclusive in the price.

      every room has controlable Air con,as well as ceiling fans, a must for this part of the world.

      We were given the 3 bedroom appartments, although there was only 4 of us, and the Master bedroom has an onsuite bathroom. There is a 2nd bathroom in all appartments.

      The place was spotlessly clean, and decor was in good condition. The management are extemely helpfull and will arrange trips and give advice if required. they are in no way pushy.

      The Nautilus is situated only 5 mins walk to the main

      restraurant area of Macrossan street, and a 3min walk to the 4 mile beach. ( about 6 min walk to netted area)

      There are, without doubt, nicer accomodation in Port Douglas, like the appartments directly opposite the Nautilus, but you wil go a long way to get better value for money than these.

      All in i would certainly recommend these appartments

      The Nautilus is great


      We stayed here for five nights at the end of December, and loved it, it is simply great value for money, the apartment was a pleasant surprise three bedrooms one ensuite, and very clean and spacious, with well equiped kitchen, would have loved to have been able to stay longer, the hotel booked all our trips which were excellent choices, the barrier reef an experience not to be missed.

      We would definately return here, the pool is small but kept our twelve year old boy very happy.

      Great location, fabulous hotel.

      Great to be back, super value for money


      Second time around in this apartment "complex". We stayed at Nautilus in 2001 and decided to see if there would be availability again. Booked via the internet and were admittedly a bit aprehensive as to if the apartments would be still in the same shape as we found them 5 years ago. We were pleasantly surprised that the entire complex looks very well maintained and had not dated at all.

      The two bed room apartments are large and very comfortable. Two separate bathrooms give parents (and children) enough privacy. Nautilus has not got the allure of a tropical resort, but if you look for space, comfort and facilities, this is the place for you, especially with kids.

      The kitchen is large and has a good size stove, fridge and all the utensils, making cooking very easy. The pool is small, but excellent for kids and adults alike. It is a 10 minute walk from town and the bus stop in front make it an easy transfer. The management can book all tours and airport trasnfers. Through the beach access path, the beach is only 2 minutes walk away.

      We most certainly recommend this place and will be back again.

      Great location, Staff, apartment


      The Nautilis Holiday Apartments are great. My family of 4 were there for a week late February 2005. The accomodations were perfectly suited for us. We had a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom with in room laundry and full kitchen. The kitchen had all the needed utensils. The place was clean and new it was well decorated and very comfortable. The large BBQ was free to use as we pleased and is located near on the patio area at the well suited pool. The Apartment had free parking both garaged and un-covered. The resident management was extremly helpful during our stay, they booked all of our tours for us included our Avis discounts, shared there personal experiances and all free of charge.We were very happy with our stay at the Nautilis Holiday Apartments and all for about 600.00(aud) for the week. Port Douglas is a perfect location for reef trips, rainforest adventures and a beautiful hour drive to Cairns.

      ... from the farm, we enjoyed a few forest walks and wandered for miles along the beaches. I loved the little sand balls made by the sandcrabs - zillions of them all over the beaches which are squooshy between your toes. Mangroves on the beach, palm trees, white waves lapping and clear blue seas. The sand is absolutely golden and soft on your feet, miles and miles of the most beautiful beaches you can imagine.
      Frustratingly though, you can’t go in - it looks ...

We kept reminding ourselves that we were soon going to be basking in the sun on the beach and snorkelling along the Great Barrier Reef - the anticipation was building. Our last 4 hour flight from Perth to Cairns was a blur. Finally... WE MADE IT! At 4 am we arrived in Cairns a bit battered and haggard but happy to be in Australia for the next 6 weeks! We grabbed a quick bite and ...

      ... and second of all give it a try and look for a job. And so we did… At first we explored the main street, which basically forms the centre of P.D. (now you can imagine how small the village is) and secondly, as we were already prepared from the job search in Melbourne, we got our CVs ready and started to hand them out at a couple of places. The general response we got was rather positive but stressing the fact that we have to be a bit patient because the season was about ...

      ... a short black, which came in a very tiny cup and was very similar to espresso but with a light foam in top. I put an entire packet of sugar in, but it was still absolutely awful. Not my cup of coffee, as they say. I then ordered a flat white, which was the right drink, much to my excitement! So in addition to the flat white, I ordered a juice - carrot, pineapple, and orange - and their special for the day, eggs benedict, which was so yummy! Afterwards, we walked ...

It was an amazing experience, and I did very well. They filmed it for us and I got a DVD. Once I got back up, I was in a wet Lycra suit, so I thought "What the heck!" And got myself some snorkeling gear. It was fantastic. I happily splashed away in the ...
