“This apartment is beautiful. Really felt like we were in Bali. The flow through air design meant we didn't need the air conditioner at all. The pool is beautiful and the room is positioned in prime location.”
Seabreeze Penthouse had everything our family required, and more, for a wonderful holiday in an amazing location. The apartment felt spacious with plenty of natural light. Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the pool and tropical gardens was a perfect way to start the day. We didn't want to leave!
“This place is just gorgeous- even nicer than it appears in the pictures. The resort has a lovely pool and the whole place has a beautiful feel to it. A true treat :)”
“The stay at Karen's place was very good, the apartment was very clean and central to Macrossan Street where all the shops and eateries are positioned. The Pool was exceptional as was the short walk to four mile beach for an early morning swim.”
“Convenient location - close to main street and beach. The apartment was clean, tidy and very comfortable.
We were provided everything to make our stay an enjoyable one.
Host was there to welcome is and contactable when requiring local advice.”
“The apartment has a fantastic location, 5 mins walk to beach, 2 min walk to Macrossan St.
There are two pools, both great. Beds were comfy! No complaints and hope to be back next year!”
“We had a great stay in Port Douglas. The apartment was clean, tidy, well presented and had everything we needed.
Great location too.”
“We had a great stay at Hibiscus and found the accommodation perfect for a week's stay with an almost 2 year-old.
The pool was warm, apartment itself is lovely, and it is so close to everything
- the beach, cafes, restaurants, the marina. We hope to come back soon!”
“My girlfriend and I had a great stay! It's exactly like the photos and Karen's communication was excellent.
Just outside Port Douglas - so great if you have a car, otherwise there is a local bus for $5 into town. ”
'Highly Recommended Holiday House'
"We had a lovely holiday in Port Douglas in Feb 2017. the 8*Sand was definitely the best bit of our trip.
The house itself is much bigger and much more than the picture showed on website.
The location is amazing, close to beach, and a very nice pizza shop just 2 mins walk away.
The coffee shop and supermarket are just around the corner.
I have recommend 8*sand to all of my friend who plan to go Port Douglas.
We will definitely visit again"
“Karen and Jeremy are tremendous hosts who were able to accommodate us on very short notice. The
apartment is in a great location for walking to shops and restaurants. We also were able to walk to the
wharf for our snorkeling trip in just a few minutes. Jeremy was very patient and explained the layout of
Port Douglas when we arrived. He also gave us some great food recommendations. We would definitely
recommend staying here!”
What a great place! Better than expected from the photos and perfect for a family holiday.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a house close to the beach in a quiet gated community.
Will be back for sure.
“I would definitely recommend this place! Very central location, shops, restaurants and the marina are all a
short walk away. The pool is fantastic and great to be able to just pop down to it from your room. We
loved being able to cook breakfast every morning and eating on the balcony overlooking the pool. ”
“Excellent right from the start. Karen made it a most welcoming feel. Her husband gave my wife some
great advice about local places to eat & drink. one minor hiccup with coffee machine but rectified ASAP
looking forward to heading back to Port Douglas again. So much to do & so little time. Will definitely stay
with Karen again & have recommended her to all of our friends. ”
“An absolutely lovely home. A beautiful place to stay for a week. Karen was helpful, friendly and gave
us lots of information about the local area and the home itself. Would certainly book through Karen
again if I'm planning a trip to the area. The villa was well appointed and beautifully presented. The pool
was perfect for cooling off on the hot days of our stay (every day!) and well used by all of us. The local
pizza place was within walking distance as was the coffee shop - both I would recommend for future guests to visit too. ”
“Karen's place is the perfect Port Douglas escape. Ridiculously close walking distance to everything you
could need - groceries, restaurants, shopping, beach, and even the marina for day trips on a boat to see
the Reef (an absolute must do!). On arrival we were given tons of helpful advice for where to eat and
things to do. The unit/apartment was nicely set-up and had plenty of space for two people (mother +
daughter). Loved the Balinese vibes. And the heated pool. Overall, couldn't ask for better
“We were welcomed by Karen's husband who showed us into the property and gave us lots of
recommendations about where to go in Port Douglas and good places to eat / drink. Really lovely people
who were keen to ensure that we got the most out of our stay. The apartment itself was perfect. Just what
we needed and right in the centre so super easy to get places. I can highly recommend staying here! ”
“Everything was wonderful! Karen and her husband were great on communication and available by phone,
so it was very easy. The location is wonderful in PD and the apartment itself is beautiful. Would stay again
without a doubt! ”
“Karen was amazing and made sure that our arrival and time spent in Port Douglas was easy. The
apartment was as it looked in the photos and was absolutely perfect. It was located in such a great spot
that we could walk everywhere - the beach and main street were only a block away. If we ever head back
to Port Douglas we will stay here again.”
