Overall the apartment was nice. Was great for the family and the kids loved the pool. Perfect for young ones (3 and 6)...
It has everything you needed however a stocked pantry is only due to the left over items from past tenants. It’s hard to know what to use or not to use. There is a coffee machine... a pack of pods for it would be nice for the first day...($4.50 @ Coles)
My only issues is that it just needs a bit of TLC. The dryer struggled to dry 2 towels and the portable clothes horse is broken, outside needs a tidy up with lots of spider webs around the bbq area and even some of the pool toys left behind by others should just be thrown out. (We left behind some good ones)
Overall I’ve stayed at the Sea Temple before and would stay there again
Myself, my husband and toddler had such a lovely time at Elan' for my birthday week, the apartment was just so comfortable and nice! And we just loved the luxury of having the private pool to enjoy. Sea temple is a great resort and so accommodating for children also! Cant wait to come back with some other families!
We had a fantastic stay. The place was fully equipped for self catering, the BBQ was a hit for us. The location of the apartment was tucked away so we could enjoy the privacy of the outdoor grassed area and pool, we even had a kookaburra come and visit! The lagoon pool was also beautiful and just a quick stroll away. Air conditioning and fans made for a pleasant nights sleep. We have an infant so I'd recommend the place for families.
Perfect place to stay while in Port Douglas
The apartment was beautiful. It has everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The beds were comfy and clean, towels were plentiful. We loved it and would definitely stay again.
Pleasant holiday with a few issues
I looked at pictures of the Sea Temple Resort on line and knew it was exactly the property that my family would enjoy staying at for our holiday in Port Douglas. Elan was certainly much cheaper than going through Pullman and some of the other STAYZ listings. But as in all things, you get what you pay for. The unit was certainly adequate for our needs. The kitchen was well stocked and having left over spices, napkins and dish detergent from previous guests always makes it easier to feel at home. The beds were comfortable and the unit was pretty clean. The main issue is that half of the outlets (including the one powering the refrigerator, washer and dryer) and the TV went out on the first night of our stay. An electrician was able to fix it the following day but it certainly impacted our holiday. Additionally the water heater leaked for our entire stay and there were roaches in the unit. We did enjoy the Sea Temple, the great pool and the easy check in/out process, but I'm not sure I would stay in this unit again.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the property was well presented and comfortable, we will be back! The Sea Temple is a little out of town but this allowed us to relax by the pool even more and the shuttle bus service was great.
