"Great Getaway"

Spent 5 days here in November. We loved the house. Its directly on Newell Beach. The view from the back deck is amazing. The pool area out the front is well set up with bbq and seating for a large group. The decor of the house is great and all rooms are comfortably set up.

"Awesome View"

Perfect place when you want beach front. My wife loved to hear the sound of waves plus easy access means beach walks anytime you want. The house was wonderful with lots of space. Highly recommend.

"A+ for Location, View, Relaxation"

The location of this house is unbeatable - the ocean is literally at the bottom of the garden at high tide, and during the day, the low tide reveals a magnificent beach with few other people on it. The setting of the house is such that, though there are a handful of neighbouring properties, there is truly a sense of 'getting away from it all'.

Palms on Newell is on a quiet street, an easy 20 minute drive north of Port Douglas, and five minutes from Mossman, where there is a supermarket for supplies to stock the fridge and make your own meals.

The beds were wonderful - comfortable, crisp white sheets and lots of pillows. Three of the four bedrooms have floor to ceiling windows facing the sea-side of the house, so you can lie in bed and listen to - even look at - the ocean through the screened louvres. There is plenty of storage space (cupboards/drawers) in the bedrooms. There was a bottle of champagne and chilled glasses in the fridge on arrival.

"Absolute Paradise"

Newell beach is absolutely stunning and this house is situated right on it, we are so glad we chose to come here. The back deck is the perfect place for a few drinks and literally just a few steps and we were walking on the sand. The beach is quiet and very private so you'll avoid the droves of tourists that frequent Port Douglas. The house itself was clean and well kept and the rooms are large. The pool was great, weloved having a BBQ and swim in the evening. The WiFi was super quick too. We will be back! Thank You
