By the Sea was the most wonderful place to stay. Great location, lovely accommodation, experienced and wonderful staff, minutes from Four Mile Beach and cafes and shops. We could not have asked for more. The staff absolutely go the extra mile from the moment you make a booking to your check-out. Staying in such fantastic accommodation with the best location made our first holiday in Port Douglas better than we could have asked for.
