We booked into what seemed a reasonably priced hotel for two nights, as we were visiting friends in cairns. We had two rooms. Both were very dated, and smelt musty. Also, we discovered that the apartments were situated in an area that was very worrying. We saw people getting drunk outside property and some of the other quests were not...

I return to Villa Vaucluse on each visit to Cairns and it is always so wonderful to see familiar and friendly faces of the very helpful management and staff. The rooms are so cosy and comfortable - feels so much like home. Its tucked away but yet so close to everything - cinemas, shopping mall, great restaurants, transits and the...

We stayed at Villa Vaucluse in Dec 2016 for a few days. The apartment itself was clean and spacious. The manager, Kirsten was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very comfortable. It was a short walk from the apartment to the Esplanade - about 5-10mins. About 10 mins, the other way is the mall, where we went to...

We stayed for a few night between Christmas and New Years. Kirsten gave us a warm welcome and absolutely made our trip! She was friendly, down to earth, and gave us great restaurant recommendations.

We recently stayed a week at Villa Vaucluse, our third visit, and again found it good value. It is well located to the supermarkets, fruit market and the Esplanade - all easy walking if you are car free. The unit is comfortable, cooking facilities good for basic meals, the bed was good and the pillow fantastic. The pool is clean...

I fly up to Cairns once a month for business, and always stay at Villa Vaucluse. The rooms are always clean and neat - nothing too flash - but ideal for anyone needing quiet, central and private accommodation. The longer I stay, the less I pay. Internet is fast and the managers are always friendly and accommodating. If you want...

When booking we opted for a low cost budget apartment in a reasonable location, did not anticipate a building site next door though.

This is a relatively small complex of apartments with a garden/courtyard in the middle giving a feeling of space as you walk in. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the esplanade, yet despite the central location it is quiet and calm. The apartment was comfortable, clean and the "elephant" towel arrangement on the bed was well worth...
