Glenn Benson purchased this villa in 2010

Why Glenn Benson chose Great Barrier Reef

We purchased this property after numerous holidays in Port Douglas where we struggled to find the complete package for our young family of 4.

We just couldn't find a centrally located beachfront property that had direct beach access for the kids (so no crossing roads) a bathroom to service each bedroom and a flatscreen tv with Austar so I could keep up with my sports whilst I was away. The other thing was the majority of the pools were small and didn't have heating which meant the kids couldn't swim in July.

So we purchased this Villa and added a private outside entertainment area, a heater for the pool and aircon throughout. We hope you enjoy our little slice of happiness just as we have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great location to the beach and within walking distance to the shops. The house was clean and quite spacious, especially good for two couples as the two main bedrooms were were on different floors. Plenty of living space and the outdoor area at the rear of the house was fantatsic. we had many great lunches and dinners in the warmth but out of the sun in very pleasant surroundings. The garden was lovely. The shared pool was fine we had no issues at all. A very relaxing holiday in perfect accommodation. Going back next year!

Very happy

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in around 20 different holiday houses across Australia, and honestly found this property as a package one of the best value and most enjoyable we've come across. The location is faultless, the home itself was modern and clean, the heated pool meant our youngsters were very comfortable, and other little things like the beach shower and coffee machine were lovely extras. An important addition was how lovely the owner was to deal with before and after - he genuinely went out of his way to help us have the best stay possible.

Best Holiday Ever!

  • 5 of 5

THis was our third year in a row at serenity, and it most certainly didn't disappoint us. The house was immaculate with newly renovated bathrooms, and soft furnishings, with evrything you could possibly need especially if you like to cook and eat in which we did on several occasions. Eating outside under the verandah, so close to the beach you can hear it!! it was magical!

The house has large bedrooms and living areas, and is so light and bright you really feel as if you are on holidays somewhere tropical. The private pool is lovely, sitting around reading books and chatting either in the sunshine or in the shade.Evry aspect of this house is amazing, location, proximity to the beach, facitlties, and if there is something you need Glenn is very obliging!!! We will return next year absolutely!

Short stay at Serenity Port Douglas

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Serenity Port Douglas with our children aged 3 and 4. The house is well equipped, in a great location and has a heated pool, which we could not get the children out of. It is a very short walk to the beach and about 10 - 15 mins walk to the centre of the town. We would certainly stay again and enjoyed every minute of our time in Port Douglas.

Perfect Location, Gorgeous Property

  • 5 of 5

What a delight it was for me and 5 friends to stay at this gorgeous property. Just a short stone throw away from 5 mile beach (literally 20mtr walk), Serenity is the perfect place to stay for that quick get away.

The property was well maintained, clean and new with lots of amenities - pool, 3 bathrooms, BBQ, outdoor dining, security gate, coffee machine, air conditioning and all of the condiments for cooking...completely self contained. We didn't even need to eat out because we had everything we needed right here.

Such value for money... I will be coming back to stay at Serenity in the very near future! Simply stunning.

Very impressive and in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

An impressive and beautiful villa with an extensive range of facilities. In a quite location very close to 4 mile beach but also only 12 minutes walk to the centre of Port Douglas.

As visitors from the UK we would also highly recommend Port Douglas as a resort for visiting Queensland. It is very laid-back, pretty and friendly and also ideally placed for visits to the reef and rainforest.
