Historical Traveler Reviews Nautilus Holiday Apartments Port Douglas
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.
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!
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 wotif.com 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.
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.

Up early for an 8.30 pick up to take us to Port Douglas for the boat trip out to Agincourt Reef. We decided to go to the Reef again because this trip offered unlimited trips in the submersible. I had already got plenty of snorkelling in but T had been limited in the amount of time she got to see under the sea. There were about a dozen on the minibus which I thought was a nice number then they transferred us to a full size coach. Still not so bad. The run up the coast ...
Easy day today, drove upto the lookout nice view. Went for walk to marina, cruise ship in so market stalls on. We then went to the water area and there was a quaint little church for wedding. Grabbed some food at supermarket, then went back in arvo to grab some prawns for dinner. All in all quite a few long walks around town, weather was lovely, not raining at least. You can see the bruising coming out on my arm, looks like it's dirty, but it's ...
... Matt can stand on the way out so his back doesn't jar. No can only sit, Ollie the tour operator advises us that this is not the tour for us. Great reason to cancel. So head back to our van. At least we can have some brekkie now. Ended up having a easy day, Matt went and did some fishing, up the river. Didn't catch anything ...
We all strolled down the long sweeping 4 mile beach fringed with leaning palm trees on one side and box jellyfish/crocodile infested waters on the other side and the rainforest covered mountains in the misty distance. Walked until we all turned pink then dived into a bar and waited for a bus back to the town. Checked out the viewpoint at the northern headland of town overlooking the beach we had just walked, good but ruined by people building ugly great big ...
... I circled yes to having asthma. This meant they wanted a doctors letter which the dive school I trained at in Thailand obviously didn't ever do. The guy went discussed it with the boss and couple moments later he came over with the bad news explaining if I anyone has taken an inhaler in the last ten years they're not allowed to dive! Queensland has the tightest regulations for diving in the world. I was fuming. Tried to get around it but there was no way they would. ...
