“We could not have asked for a better experience at the Port Douglas Lakeside Retreat — it’s a beautiful and immaculately clean retreat in a perfect location outside Port Douglas with infinite amenities included. The host was communicative and extremely welcoming, and upon arrival we really felt we’d won the lottery of Queensland holiday houses, the place is even more impressive than the professional photographs suggest. It’s truly out of this world and I’d be glad to return if and when it’s offered as a rental again”
