Here is Port Douglas holiday accommodation to remember. For starters, you don’t have to go far at all for your early morning cup of joe. The Sparrow Coffee Shop proves to the contrary that just because you’ve come to the far north of Queensland, does not mean you have to drink bad coffee. This little hole in the wall establishment serves fantastic coffee and the barristas are consummate professionals sharing the same building as us, the Villa San Michele. How’s that for starters.
Holidays in Port Douglas
The location of this Port Douglas accommodation is unbeatable. Here at 39 Macrossan Street you are at the centre of the Port Douglas restaurant strip. There is not more convenient luxury accommodation in Port Douglas than this. Lovers of Italian and Chinese cuisines can find their heaven in the same building too with Bucci Italian and Jade Chinese Restaurants. Both very fine restaurants and well reviewed too.
Further afield at the marina is the Hemingways Brewery which is next to the Hogs Breath. Choose from from the rollicking bistro menu at the Hogs Breath or take in some craft beer and gastro pub eats at Hemingways. Either way, if you’re after a pub meal all bases are cover, and with views over Dickson Inlet and beyond. Afterwards it’s a lovely walk along the marina and along Wharf Street — home to many other fine restaurants. It’s the ideal walk to preview what restaurant you might want to try next. On the other side of Wharf Street you’ll pass by the pretty little chapel St Mary’s by the Sea and then the Port Douglas Sunday Markets. If you’re staying over Sunday then a visit is a must do. You’ll have lot’s of fresh produce and small goods for the table, just the thing for Sunday lunch on the balcony.
While we’re on the topic of the marina, here’s something worth seeing; every day around 5pm at the Inlet Seafood Restaurant staff feed George, the resident giant grouper who lives under the restaurant. The experience is free, but you can also order the Sunset Special: a beer and some local prawns for twenty bucks. Not a bad apertif to get you started for the evening.
Remember to book your Port Douglas holiday accommodation at Villa San Michele. We know you’ll love it here.
