We stayed in 9 places on our trip- and loved this one best! A review of Pink Flamingo
We loved this gay-friendly place in Port Douglas. The girls who run it are genuinely friendly and helpful (ask to see their rose-breasted cockatoo called Scratch!). The place feels really loved and they have thought of everything that you could need in your room, from real coffee and a cafetiere, to incense sticks, mosquito coils and a welcome map to a great place for breakfast. Great decor too- very funky. Nice beds, your own patio, great pool with a double lilo, good advice on trips to the reef (go out with Wavelength if you love snorkelling), film nights. I don't really understand the suggestion that you'd need a car to drive into town- it was a really easy 15-20 minute walk to the restaurants and marina, with bats to amuse you on the way back at night. If you have more time, walk into town along the stunning beach. You could even hire one of the property's bikes. The only weird thing is that bathrooms don't have a room, only a flimsy bit of curtain. Expect to get to know your travelling companion intimately!
