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.

... felt really bad about that. The food was ok, I asked for an eye fillet steak medium, which wasn’t cheap and came out hard and dead as a doornail and I couldn’t swallow it. I was going to send it back but was too tired to wait for another to be cooked, so just left it. They took our 2 drinks off the bill which was nice, I didn’t care, I was beyond caring and just wanted to go to bed. We got back to the hotel and fell ...
On what was another chilly morning we achieved our earliest departure yet and set off on the road again, bound for Cooktown. An hour later we stopped at a place called Innot Hot Springs, where those who were game walked in the warm/hot waters of the spring-fed creek. We continued on and called in to take some photos of the "Windy Hill" wind farm before reaching the pretty little town of Ravenshoe. Right next door to the cafe where the tragic ...
... my bag was and then jumped in properly the water was so nice and refreshing and it surprised me that there were so many people walking and running on the beach but nobody in the water. Their loss! We went and had breakfast and by the time we got out it had completely clouded over and looked like it was going to rain. We were going to hire bikes but with the weather looking like it was about to turn we hopped in the car and drove to Mossman Gorge. What a pleasant surprise that ...
... meandered through the forest and alongside the Mossman River. You can swim at various points but it was a little too cold and the Centre had recommended against it due to strong currents - in some places the water was really gushing over the rocks. When the river floods, it is so powerful that it can move huge 4-5 metre diameter boulders. We saw some more big strangler fig trees and some hilarious brush turkeys on our walk. Unfortunately, halfway through it started to pour with ...
... I had been thinking to myself I wonder what caused all of that and then dad proceeded to answer my question without me even asking it. He pointed to one spot that had been torn up pretty bad and he said, “That’s the armadillo sign right there.” I said, “Now, what makes you think they’ve got armadillos over here?” To which I received the reply, “Cause I’ve got a lot of experience with armadillos, and ...
