"Wonderful Villa On The Beach"

We stayed here for 5 days in February 2017 and had an absolutely WONDERFUL time. Trish was extremely friendly and a great host throughout our stay, with great recommendations for local restaurants and tips to make the most of our stay in the area. The villa was spacious, clean, and the perfect size for my husband and I and my father. Our patio looked over the ocean and was an ideal spot to enjoy a morning cup of coffee while the sun rose. The kitchen was well equipped with a lovely dining table and we enjoyed the option of cooking at home several nights. We used our villa at Palm Cove as a base camp for several excursions along the coast, including a wonderful day trip up to Daintree National Park and Cape Tribulation, and down to Cairns for a full day trip out to the Great Barrier Reef. We would 100% recommend staying here!

"A Place You Will Not Want To Leave"

We have just returned from our wonderful Australian holiday which finished with 11 days at the fantastic Villa Beach. It is the perfect place to stay. Beautiful, spotlessly clean accommodation in an idyllic beach front location. There is everything you could possibly need in the apartment, including chairs, loungers and towels for the beach. Trish made sure we had all the information on the local restaurants and there is an abundance of leaflets on things to do and see in the area. We would highly recommend Villa Beach to anyone lucky enough to be staying in the Palm Cove and hope to return ourselves one day.

"Tropical Wonderland"

Stayed here in January 17 for 5 nights. Booking was very easy, Trish very on the ball confirming availability of dates, costs and facilities. On arrival we were met by Trish who gave us the tour of a fantastic first floor apartment which overlooked the white sandy beach fringed with palm trees - everyone's ideal tropical beach. The apartment was wonderful, full of light and very well equipped. The place was spotless and Trish spent time ensuring we knew the layout of and facilities available. She explained the location of local restaurants and was able to offer discounted trips to the Barrier Reef and Kuranda railway and Skylift - two must do's. The location was very quiet, and the beach just over the road very inviting with loungers and beach towels available for our use. Villa Beach is a wonderful place to base yourself while exploring the Queensland Rainforest and Reef. Relaxed but very inviting , just like having your own personal holiday home.

"Fantastic Villa to share with friends or family right on the beach in beautiful Palm Cove"

Everything was just as seen on the website, very clean and comfortable, perfect for us travelling with another couple with two double bedrooms and bathroom each. Well appointed kitchen with everything we needed and we enjoyed breakfast lunch and some dinners on the balcony overlooking the beach. Short 10-15 minute walk to a great selection of bars and restaurants. Great location between Port Douglas & Cairns.

Trish was wonderful, our flight had been delayed from Sydney by over 4 hours so she rang to make sure all was OK. Wonderful quiet place to relax. Unit was fully equipped with all we needed. Beautiful view from balcony of the beach. Was wonderful falling asleep to the waves of the ocean. Great pool and spa. Everything was clean and in working order. Close to Palm Cove restaurants and within walking distance.

"Absolutely Perfect Beachfront Holiday"

The Villa Beach accommodation was fantastic. Our host, Trish, had thought of everything from a torch when walking at night, to a beach lounge that we could take across the road. Her recommendations to local restaurants were great. The apartment is a short 10 minute walk away from Palm Cove, on the beach or through a mangrove walk. We would not hesitate to recommend Villa Beach to anyone who is looking for a relaxing break with so many good restaurants and bars within walking distance.

We stayed with friends at Villa Beach in a 2 bedroom apartment for 12 nights. The accomodation was beautiful and the position with sea and garden views lovely, in a quiet location, but within walking distance to Palm Cove.The manager Trish was so helpful. Trish helped with any information we needed, including about the sights and with booking tours.. Nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others.

Our apartment right on the beach with stunning views was everything we had hoped. Trish was very welcoming and gave us excellent advice on dining options. The apartment was superbly furnished and really comfortable. Couldn't have asked for more. Lovely quiet location away from the noise of Palm Cove, but a delightful walk through the forest along well set out paths. It was very hard to leave. Loved it!

We rented this beautiful villa for 5 nights to celebrate my 60th birthday. Trish greeted us on arrival and explained how everything worked and made some suggestions on local eateries, etc. We loved the villa's absolute beachfront location and immaculate presentation. The fresh flowers in the living room were an especially nice touch. We will definitely return in the near future and have no hesitation in recommending the villa to family and friends.

"Two Thumbs Up!"

We ( two colleagues with a week of spare time to kill between business trips ) booked the apartment to leisure near the beach for a week. And perfect it was! The place is super clean, tasteful and equipped with everything you might require. It has two separate bedrooms with bathrooms and here's a central AC that really works (you can appreciate that when sleeping in Cairns). The beautiful beach is just 'cross a small street 25m from the apartment building and there is hardly anyone on it: like a private beach. And maybe the best part: It is a really quite place, we truly were able to forget the rush of normal life and enjoy our time off. We really, really appreciated it. The couple who run the place are very helpful but without forcing their help upon you. When looking for leisure: accept no substitute.

"Just What We Wanted"

This was our first visit to Australia and Trish was very welcoming and helpful. She was great with sightseeing suggestions and bookings. The unit we had was 1 bedroom, main floor. We had a patio, walkout to the beach and a garage for our rental car. It was clean, nicely decorated, spacious and comfortable. We were only there for 4 nights and would have loved to have stayed longer! So much to enjoy within walking distance. Palm Cove, local restaurants and the beach. If this vacation rental wasn't so far away, we would be back next year.

"Lovely Apartment In Great Location"

Beautiful apartment, very spacious and clean. Stayed with my husband and our daughter and partner. Everything you need is supplied. Easy to use BBQ on balcony facing beach. Nice beach walk to shops and restaurants at Palm Cove. Easy driving distance to Cairns (20 min). Large supermarket close by. Trisha was extremely helpful - replying to all my email questions before we went and also advising us and booking our trips when we arrived. Only minus was the cost of wifi. Would highly recommend a stay and would love to return.

** Secure WiFi is supplied by Telstra (Australia's largest telco company) direct to guests. The cost is AUD$ 0.014 (1.4 cents) per MB.

After reading previous excellent reviews our expectations were high, We weren't disappointed, the location of this property, facillities & the way the villa is presented is second to none. Trisha who owns the villas deserves high praise for the pristine way the dwelling is kept along with the cleanliness & attention to detail, your every wish is catered for, every villa is self contained & each villa has its own outside lock-up which contains beach chairs & loungers along with your own personal car par parking space, in short I would have no hesitation in recommending this property, an absolute gem !!

My husband and I had a lovely time during our 6 night stay. The condo was immaculate with everything exactly as described. Trish was delightful and helpful without being intrusive. We went to Port Douglas, the Cairns Zoo and the reef during our stay. We originally planned more trips but loved the condo, views, pool and beach so much that we ended up just chilling and enjoying the local restaurants during much of our stay. Perfect!

"Quality Villa in a Fantastic Location"

We can't speak highly enough about our experience. Trish and Graeme where welcoming from the start and went out of their way to make our stay as best it could be (let Trish book your tours etc great advice and a discount). Take the TUSA6 reef dive if your considering one. Our ground floor pool side Villa was simply beautiful. Tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean with everything you would need for self contained stays. The location on the northern end of Clifton Beach was perfect for us with Palm Cove just a 10 minute walk for morning coffee / breakfast and evening dinner and drinks. Try Vivo for coffee best one we found, Portabello and Sea Temple for dinner. Coco Mojo hidden at Clifton Beach was the cheapest and good quality. We are keen to return and have no hesitations in recommending Villa Beach for your stay.

"Look No Further!"

If you are looking for a place in this geographical area that is quiet and secluded, clean, and on the beach, this is it! Trish and Graeme are wonderful, knowledgeable hosts and the 2-bedroom condo we stayed in was perfect. We were on the ground level and enjoyed the ocean view from our patio. Cool breezes facilitated sleeping as did the rhythm of the breaking waves. We did not rent a car during our two-week stay as everything we needed was a short walk away - and the bus to Cairns was readily available. I am not given to hyperbole, but Villa Beach was just what we were looking for! I would return in a heartbeat.

Our stay at the Beachfront Villa was amazing. There were 5 of us in a 3 bedroom apt and it was so comfortable and spacious. It was relaxing and better than we could have imagined. Trish was great and helped us plan the best day to go on our reef tour from Cairns! The villa is right on the beach, as promised. We went to sleep each night with a gentle lullaby from the surf! We would stay at the Beachfront Villa again without hesitation!!!

"Immaculate Apartment"

Spent a lovely week here recently. The apartment was well layed out and immaculately presented. It is clear that thought has been put in to making sure you have everything that you need so your stay is as comfortable as possible. Trish also arranged all our trips for us during the week which meant we went to the reef on the best possible day, ensuring conditions were as good as possible. We have rented many apartments over the years, this one was the best in terms of location, comfort and the spotless presentation of it. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the area.

"Perfect Peaceful Home Away From Home"

We spent 9 nights here and we were so pleased with the unit. It was very private and relaxing!! Next time we will stay for a month!! Trish could not have been more helpful and unobtrusive at the same time. I was a little disappointed that our door did not open right on to the beach but it was only 40 steps away. It is so close that you can hear the waves crashing on the beach. Stunning sunrises. Every evening we took our very comfortable lawn chairs to the beach and enjoyed the view and the very friendly locals.

We are now into our 4th week of a 9 week extended vacation. We met up here in Cairns with friends from Alberta for the remaining 5 weeks. This is our 3rd day here at Villa Beach. What a treat! If you read all of the other reviews, you pretty much get a picture just how nice the apartments and beach location are. Our hosts Trish and Graham, like almost every Aussie we've met are very friendly and extremely helpful. While planning our trip from Canada it can be a bit daunting. Trish could not have been any more helpful answering my questions promptly and sending me suggestions for sightseeing etc. If you are heading to Cairns, this is the place to stay.

"Just as represented, only better!"

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely six-night stay at Villa Beach in a two bedroom unit. It was wonderful to have plenty of space, a well equipped kitchen, two balconies to enjoy the evening bird and flying fox activity, and the beach right across the street. I would highly recommend, and hope I get to return to stay longer next time. Close to Kuranda, Daintree, and The Reef, there's so much to see and do in the area, but I'd love more time to just "stay home" at Villa Beach.

"Best Beachfront Position In Cairns - Absolute Paradise"

My husband and I stayed at Villa Beach last week. It really lives up to its 5 Star reviews. All villas look straight onto the beach in front as they guarantee on their web site "absolute beach view guaranteed". Spotlessly clean and beautiful new furnishings just like a new show house. Looks better in real life than on their web site. Spent many hours on the beach under the palm trees and we were lucky enough to experience a magnificent moon rise over the ocean. An absolute tropical paradise! Booking direct with Trish made things so easy and secure which is very important when making a booking from overseas, and the personal check-in better than any 5 star hotel we have stayed at, real professional service. Had their driving instructions from Cairns airport, easy to find, approx 15 minutes drive. By far the best beachfront position in the Cairns area (after checking all the others out) without a doubt, it reminded us of our honeymoon trip to Fiji. There is a large Oz chain supermarket (Coles) within easy walking, as well as all the restaurants etc of Palm Cove just a short walk up the beach. Highly recommend, definitely the place to stay. We give it 10 out of 10.

"Everything It Advertises And More"

Our family did a 3-week tour of Australia and stayed at a lot of great places, but this was the best of the best. From the moment we walked in the door, it was like we were stepping into paradise. The condo was beautiful--the furnishings were lovely and in excellent condition, everything was well-kept, nothing looked worn or run-down, and it was CLEAN. Immaculate, in fact. We were in a 2-bedroom condo on the top floor, and the view was spectacular, from both the front and back. We were directly across from the beach. Trish and Graham were wonderful hosts and helped us with everything from booking a reef tour to renting bikes to setting up Wi-Fi (a must with teenagers!) to providing us with beach chairs and towels. After 10 days on the go, it was wonderful to relax on the beach for a week. When you book a place online, there's always this worry in the back of your head that it might be too good to be true. Well, believe me, Villa Beach is everything it advertises, and more. Simply fantastic, sublime.

"Paradise"

Our first trip to the Cairns area to visit friends. We chose Villa Beach apartments from the rave reviews on TripAdviser. This property is everything a tropical holiday can offer. Set right on the beach, no noise or loud tourists. Our apartment was magnificent, very luxurious, comfortable and clean, with everything you could imagine available for your use. Just to mention a few, beach chairs, CDs, movies, esky, beautiful linen, basic cooking essentials, even down to the Areoguard. Our host Trish was very helpful and friendly. Villa Beach is 5 minute walk to a good Coles supermarket, and a short walk to Palm Cove which has a lovely choice of restaurants, and shops. We drove to Cairns once, but couldn't wait to drive back to the tranquility of Villa Beach. We stayed in Villa 1 which is on the ground floor, immediate access to the pool, beach and has a lock up garage. Can't wait to return for another fantastic stay at Villa Beach apartments.

"Heaven"

My husband and I and another couple stayed in the 2 bedroom condo for a week. I'm pleased to tell you that what you see in pictures is exactly what you get. The condo was beautiful and perfect for 2 couples. The attention to details is fantastic, down to the cooler and beach chairs for happy hour by the ocean. Which, by the way, is right across the road. We spent many nights on the main balcony enjoying a BBQ and the view. Palm cove is a very short walk away with many restaurants to choose from. Trish made our stay very enjoyable, from meeting us when we arrived to answering all our questions throughout our stay. Trish also booked our tours for us which was fantastic. I'd highly recommend staying here to anyone who is thinking of coming to Palm Cove. It really was a piece of heaven. I rate Villa Beach 5 Star.

I have just returned form a week at the Villa Beach apartments. Have not got one bad thing to say about this accommodation. It's position is perfect, directly opposite the beach and only a short walk to the restaurants of Palm Cove. A large supermarket is also within walking distance. There is no noise from the passing tourists and traffic that you find in the main street of Palm Cove. The property was impeccably clean and has everything you would need to make a wonderful holiday. They have a neat system for in-room wifi internet. Trish and Graeme are wonderful hosts, always available when needed but inconspicuous at the same time. I wish I could have stayed longer, would love to return.

"Exceptional Property"

Our November stay at Villa Beach was by far one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had with rental properties. Its location is perfect. You are literally only a few steps from an incredible beach front. The views from our second floor apartment were unobstructed. The apartment is quiet and so close to the sea that the sound of the waves lull you to sleep at night. It is also beautifully appointed and so clean and well kept. Great walks outside of the door, including a nature hike that gives you a taste of the rain forest that literally comes down to the sea. This same walk then brings you to the cute and trendy village of Palm Cove. We thoroughly enjoyed our time spent at Villa Beach. Trish and Graham, thanks for your help in planning our day trips. Kuranda was outstanding. Definitely, if you are planning a visit to the Cairns area, choose Palm Cove and Villa Beach. You won't do better.

"Villa Beach is the Real Deal"

"It's too good to be true." But, in the case of Villa Beach it is all true! The location is perfect; the view is spectacular; the accommodation exceeded our hopes and expectations - large, fresh and immaculate. Trish and Graham are true professionals at their craft. Their responses to our numerous inquires were thorough, accurate, and complete. We spent one month here, Nov 2013, with most evenings having cocktails on the beach directly in front of our apartment. Villa Beach's location is a pleasant stroll to the Palm Cove restaurants and shops. It is also located to the best Great Barrier Reef and rainforest experience Australia has to offer. The Cole's supermarket and other facilities are just minutes away. We could not have picked a more idyllic place to begin our 6 month visit to Australia. If you are looking for a restful South Pacific atmosphere, blue waters and swaying palms , look no further. Thank you Trish and Graham for sharing your place. A truly memorable experience. Definitely deserving of a 5 Star rating.

"When Only The Best Will Do!"

My husband and I stayed at Villa Beach with another couple early October, we had a 2 bedroom villa apartment. It was absolutley beautiful. We were all mesmerized by the view looking straight onto the beach. The furnishings are stunning and have that laid back feeling, and the layout is perfect for 2 couples. I have never seen an apartment design as good as this. The 2 bedrooms are seperated from each other by the extremely spacious living, dining, lounge and kitchen areas, and both bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms which are very generous in size. (and hairdryers too) The villa was spotlessly clean and had every conceivable thing you need. Villa Beach supplies beach chairs and lounges for the beach which we made good use of. The full size kitchen has everthing you need and more. The villa has its own BBQ and we had many an enjoyable meal on the large balcony which looked straigt onto the beach. Absolute paradise! Villa Beach is perfectly positioned between Cairns (airport only 15 mins simple drive away) and Port Douglas. It was perfect for us as we did 2 reef cruises, one out of Cairns and one out of Port Douglas. Cairns zoo is only a few minutes drive away (where I cuddled a koala) and there is a large full size supermarket also only a couple of minutes drive away as well. We enjoyed the short walks up the beach to the restaurants at Palm Cove and recommend Far Horizons for lunch (right on the beach amongst the coconut palms). Book your reef tour with Trish, she gets you a discount off everthing and she picked the best days for us to go to the reef both times. This is the place to stay while in Cairns, it is truly amazing with the best central location for all the must do things to see around the area. Location, location, and it has it, right on the beach. Trish makes the booking process very easy, as well as the check-in, no fussing about, something that is extremely important when booking and travelling from the other side of the world.

"Dream Honeymoon..."

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our honeymoon! The unit was spacious, clean and beautiful. Trish and Graham were wonderful hosts and so welcoming! The house has everything you need and you are very close to a supermarket and bottle shop. The location is great.. you can take a walk on the beach to get to restaurants and shops. Also, you can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean.

Perfect place to stay!! Thank you for a wonderful few days!!

"Wonderful Place"

Trish and Graham do a great job. The unit in which we stayed was well appointed and the location is ideal, halfway between the restaurants and attractions of Palm Cove and the shopping area in Clifton Beach. This is a great spot for a quiet, relaxing stay. Stayed July 2013, traveled with family

"Perfect Paradise, an Idyllic Setting"

If quality is what you are after then this apartment has it in bucketfuls! The apartment has everything you need and is set in a peaceful beachfront location. The best holiday rental we have had in the past few years. We were well looked after by Trish, who advised us on a variety of quality excursions, bars and restaurants. We will recommend to all our friends and family in both the UK and Australia who are planning a visit to this part of Queensland. I rate Villa Beach 5 Star

"Honeymoon"

Stayed here in December 2012 for one week of our honeymoon in Australia and had the best time ever..........location is incredible, overlooking the beach which is extremely quiet any time of day or night. My wife spent hour and hour searching the web for the perfect spot and she certainly found it. Well done love x. The owners 'Trish & Graham' were extremely helpful and on hand for any tourism queries we had, booking the Barrier Reef trip and Kuranda tours for us in advance. The apartment was incredible with a large balcony overlooking the sea, a welcome sight either at breakfast time, lunch or dinner ! I really can't rate this place highly enough, however I'm going to leave it there as don't want it to be booked up when we plan to return. Trish, Graham thanks once again for an unforgettable honeymoon x. Hope to see you soon. Tony & Helen

We had a brilliant time staying at Villa Beach – THANK YOU. The unit was everything we had hoped for and more. Perfect location, we loved being out of the hub of things, and enjoyed the tranquility. We had a fabulous day on the Reef Cruise – it was unbelievable, and the weather was perfect….the last good day we had, in terms of doing that trip, so we were very grateful for your advice to go on the day we did. We also did the drive to Daintree and Cape Trib – what a gorgeous drive, as was the drive to Kurranda. It really is a beautiful region where you are.
We had a perfect day for the birthday – I had a few hours in a day spa and Dean had a massage at the Thai massage place which he raved over. I went to the spa at Peppers and I thought they were fabulous. We came back to Moet and prawns, before heading back to Palm Cove for a truly memorable dinner at NuNu. What a brilliant restaurant. Absolutely exceptional food and the service was first class. We don’t go out for dinner much, as we prefer to cook ourselves (Master chefs in the making!!!!!LOL) and we only like to go out if the restaurant can provide something exceptional and something that we cannot produce in the kitchen ourselves. NuNu came up trumps on all fronts.
We pretty much took it easy for the rest of the time, just loving relaxing on the balcony, reading and enjoying being on the beachfront from the comfort of our unit. We feel very much refreshed and we were very sad to leave. But we made a promise that we will be back at some stage – we loved it so much.
Thank you again for everything and for providing such a perfect holiday option.

"Book It You Wont Be Sorry!!"

We had the best time in this beautiful apartment. It lived up to every promise. Trish is a marvellous hostess with little touches like paper towel, cleaning products, matches, insect spray etc. We felt at home straight away. Trish was very helpful with local knowledge too, booked all our tours with extra discount by doing so, kept us up to date with the best weather for the reef. The views are wonderful with two covered balconies to enjoy either the hinterland or the beach. Lots of wildlife are around in the many trees, rocked to sleep with the waves from the beach. Beds are very comfy with quality furnishing throughout. The shops are 2mins away by car for all the essentials and Palm Cove village is a nice, easy 10-15mins walk via the beach or a boardwalk in the rainforest area. This was the perfect location to be close to everything Cairns has to offer yet holiday in peaceful surroundings.

"Absolute Perfection"

The only thing I can say about Villa Beach is WOW. Beautiful apartments, sublime location, perfect beach. The owners, Trish and Graham are warm, friendly and helpful. This is a quiet residential area adjacent to the more crowded Palm Cove...and an easy walk to the shops and restaurants there. We felt at home immediately and will be back soon even though it is 7000 miles from home. If you are looking for an absolutely perfect place to stay, I cannot recommend Villa Beach more highly. Room Tip: There are NO bad rooms here. Every room is ocean view.

"Faultless"

This was easily the best holiday rental we have ever stayed in. The rooms were all spacious, comfortable and beautifully furnished. Photos can sometimes "tart-up" accommodation and to be honest I wasn't expecting it to be actually as good as it was, very happy to be wrong though! The accommodation is a stones throw from the beach, across a quite road, there are netted areas to swim along the beach and the centre of Palm Cove with its various restaurants is a about a 15 minute walk along the beach. There's a Coles supermarket within walking distance too, about 3 mins in the car. We spent most of our time here travelling around the Cairns region and it was a joy to come back to such a beautiful "home" each evening. Although we intended to go out to dinner in Palm Cove or Cairns we were actually a lot happier just sitting on the huge balcony looking out to sea, eating and drinking whatever we had bought earlier that day, bliss. The owners were hugely helpful and friendly too, we booked and paid for our trips to The Great Barrier Reef and Kurunda Scenic Railway and Skyrail Rainforest Cableway directly with them which was so convenient. A drive to Mossman Gorge, Daintree and Cape Tribulation are also highly recommended. Stay here, you won’t be disappointed!

"Wonderful Accommodations with a View"

Our recent stay at Palm Cove was wonderful. The accommodations were perfect for our needs. The decor was very well designed and the unit itself was relaxing and clean. Trish and her husband were the consummate hosts. Trish was available at all times to help us with any questions we had. The view from the patio was wonderful. We would eat our meals there and watch the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Be sure and have Trish book all your excursions ie to Barrior Reef, Skyride etc.for a discount she offers. Overall our experience surpassed our expectations. We will definitely return.

"Exceptional Villa On The Beach"

After readying so many great reviews for Villa Beach I thought, "these reviews are too good to be true" and "but it looks exactly what I am after" and "will I or won't I book". Thank goodness I did! From the moment I stepped into the villa apartment I was on a high, the villa looking straight out onto the beach and ocean. First impression... Villa Beach web site definitely is enticing but really does not do it justice, the real thing is way better than what you envisage from seeing the web pictures. The beautiful furnishings and attention to detail are exceptional. Location 2nd to none. The apartment was great for 2 couples because one bedroom and its bathroom is at the front of the villa and the other bedroom is at the back of the villa with its own bathroom as well, total privacy for everybody, and in between is the full size kitchen, living and dinning areas which have great beach & ocean views.

What we really loved was all the extra details which show us that you care for your guests' comfort ie. Twinings tea and not "home brand", shopping bags, beach towels, ice in the freezer! ...etc. It's all those little things that have made our holiday exceptional. Thanks SO much.

From the moment we walked into our stunning villa apartment we knew our holiday was going to be wonderful. It is so much better in real life than what you see on the web site. The word spectacular comes to mind, views straight onto the beach, private, beautiful furnishings, great kitchen with view onto the beach and what really stands out is the high ceilings and the south pacific bure hut style recesses in the ceilings of the bedrooms for the island style rattan ceiling fans. My husband and I just looked at each other in excitement that we had chosen such a beautiful place. Truly 5 star accommodation. Great location, close to beachfront restaurants which we frequently made use of and we just walked up the beach to them. (recommend Vivo, Sea Temple, Choc Dee Thai and Bella Baci) A large Coles supermarket is also within easy walking distance that has every conceivable thing you would need and central to all attractions. Cairns Tropical Zoo is also close and you can actually cuddle a koala there, something that I have always dreamed of doing. The villa comes with beach lounges and chairs for sunbaking on the beach or a sunset drink which we loved doing. The balcony looked right onto the beach and has a BBQ as well. If you don't want to sit on the beach you can just sit on the balconies and look straight onto the ocean. We loved being spoilt in these magnificent surroundings. After driving around all the other beach areas of Cairns to see what they were like in comparison to where we were staying, the unique beachfront position that Villa Beach has is by far the best, nothing compares. 10/10 Note: Get Trish to book your tours to get a discount, villa has its own private laundry, hairdryers in the bathrooms, beach towels are included and WiFi is available.

Heaven On The Beach

Well here we are at Villa Beach sitting on the balcony of our villa apartment looking straight out onto the beach just like we were told we would when we booked. My husband and I are so impressed with Villa Beach I just had to write this review for this place whilst I was actually experiencing it. We have just had a BBQ lunch on the balcony and sitting looking onto the beach enjoying an Australian sauvignon blanc. Now this is what I call living in paradise. The villa is beautiful, spacious, love the furnishings, really great design and the presentation absolutely faultless, better than a brand new display home. Girls, from the full size kitchen you can look out onto the beach while you knock up something special for your man, hang on, maybe it should be the other way around! This morning we walked up the beach and had breakfast at Vivo which we can recommend and then had a bit of a swim, sunbake and read under the coconut palms right in front of Villa Beach. Sound too good to be true, that's why I have to write this now while I'm living the dream holiday we have been 'dreaming' about for so long back home. We went to the outer part of the Great Barrier Reef yesterday, words fail to describe how beautiful it is, you have to see it to believe it, it's definitely a "bucket list" thing you have to do. We went with Ocean Freedom Cruise and they were so helpful and friendly they topped the day off. NB. Book with Trish at Villa Beach and get a discount rate. Villa Beach advertising says it's beachfront position is like a south pacific island, it's true ! and central to all activities, close to a supermarket which has absolutely everything and walking distance to great beachfront restaurants and cafes. The Palm Cove/Clifton Beach area is truly the best place to holiday in Cairns and we are so glad we found this fantastic place on the beach.

This was our final resting place on our fantastic trip to Australia and it did not disappoint. This place was beautiful!! The property and apartment were immaculate and our hosts were gracious and very helpful in helping book some of the local attractions. We absolutely felt like we were in a tropical paradise and the location was fabulous. A short stroll down the beach brought us to restaurants and shops and a short drive got us to the great barrier reef tour boats, the railway and the sky train....all must do activities if you are staying here. This is a place we would definitely visit again.

From our first contact with Villa Beach, it was lovely to experience that good old fashion service that has disappeared in today's so called modern world. Booking was easy, which is important when you are choosing an overseas destination. The villa was spectacular, beautiful furnishings and superb position right on the beach. We travelled with friends and the layout of the villa is wonderful. We had a 2 bedroom configuration and the bedrooms are situated away from each other at opposite ends of the villa, both with their own large ensuite bathrooms and is the most private design we have ever seen, it is perfect for 2 couples. The villa is extremely specious with full size kitchen, dining and lounge areas, its own laundry and large balcony with uninterrupted view onto the beach in front. What makes it also different is that there are only 6 villas that make up this beautifully stylish villa complex with each villa totally private from the other, no villa looks onto another, just out onto the beach, true privacy. Their web site says absolute beach view guaranteed, beleive us, it is true. 5+ star quality, absolutely spotless, WiFi available, central to all attractions and reef tours, easy walk to beachfront restaurants & cafes and large supermarket with everything close by. Don't hesitate to make a booking, we can only highly recommend this standout property.

Villa 'Paradise' On The Beach

When my husband Steve and I arrived at Villa Beach we knew we had hit the jackpot. This is a standout property and we didn't want to leave. Positioned right on the beach our villa apartment had a fantastic view straight onto the beach not only from the balcony but from our bedroom, kitchen, lounge and living area. This was living on the beach in paradise! The villa has every thing you could possibly want, the owners have really paid attention to detail, from the beautiful furnishings to the numerous inclusions and the absolute cleanliness. The friendly greeting when we arrived from Trish made us feel at home instantly and nothing was a problem to her, she got us discounts at restaurants as well as off all our tours and the local knowledge she shared with us made our stay easy and relaxing. Villa Beach is definitely located in the best position in Cairns, on the beach, central location to every reef tour we chose, short distance to the Kuranda Rail and Skyrail, Port Douglas, Mossman Gorge Rainforest and a full size supermarket only minutes away where we stocked up on all our groceries and refreshments!! Their advertising says "quiet tropical South Seas ambience", its right. We strolled up the beach to Palm Cove a few times which is just a short walk from Villa Beach to a number of restaurants for lunch and then lazily strolled back and sat on the beach for a quiet drink. This is what we hoped and dreamed it would be like when we booked and it happened. If you want to get your picture taken with a koala bear like I did you can actually cuddle one and get a photo at the Cairns Tropical Zoo which is in close walking distance from Villa Beach. Steve and I only have wonderful things to say about Villa Beach and highly recommend this place, we will be telling all our friends for a long time to come. Congratulations and a big thank you to the owners Trish & Graham who have shared their magnificent piece of paradise with us.You made our honeymoon very special.

Having been to Cairns several times we wanted something a little quieter for our special 30th wedding anniversary. We love the Palm Cove area for its great weather and beaches. Advertied as "beachfront" can sometimes be a bit misleading, but believe me this is Beachfront! We arrived from NZ and after a short drive from Cairns airport, Villa Beach is very easy to find. Trish met us and showed us to our Villa, wow were we surprised? Trish showed us how everything worked and gave us some recommendations of where to eat and shop . Our second storey villa overlooked the beach with our bedroom also facing the beach with its own ensuite . Tastefully decorated is the word to describe the villa, just like you are at home, with all the mod cons - flat screen tvs, vids, music cds etc. The villa has ceiling fans and is fully airconditioned, we prefered to open the shutters and listen to the sound of the waves crashing on the beach. Many an hour was spent on the beach, sunbathing or walking in the evening, this is one of Australias most outstanding beaches. We had a fabulous anniversary although I peeked a little early courtesy of a bottle of bubbly that Trish had thoughtfully left for us, very nice it was too. The pool is nice and cool with the seawater around 26 degrees. The restaurants and shops of Palm Cove are an enjoyable 10 minutes walk away. The saddest part was leaving this lovely place, but we'll be back thats for sure. Well done Graham and Trish!

Villa Beach is truly on the beach in Paradise ! Location is wonderful, we walked along the beach to a number of different restaurants (recommend Vivo)and a large supermarket is close for all you need. From our villa balcony we looked right onto the beach where we spent many relaxing hours under the coconut palms and swimming in the pool. We did not want to leave and go home back to our cold climate. The villa was absolutely beautiful and very specious and had every thing you could possibly need, 5 Star for sure and Wi-Fi also. We highly recommend Villa Beach to anybody, and after seeing all the other beaches of Cairns we know we picked the best, Villa Beach has the most unique and beautiful beach position of all by far. It was the highlight of our honeymoon.

'Terrific Place'
We stayed at this villa for 10 nights and ejoyed every minute of it. Trish and Graham were delightful people and very helpful with any questions. The villa is superb and every last detail is thought of. We had a two bedroom villa and I could so easily move in and live there! During our stay we hired a car as there were 4 adults to explore this stunning area. The beautiful coastal roads on one side and the impressive rain forest on the other will remain long in my memoray! We drove up to Daintree and spent a great day there thoroughly enjoying our mango swamp boat trip. We went out to the Barrier reef hint check with Trish for a weather update for the clamest day to visit. Drove around the Atherton area for a day which is beautiful and visited the zoo which is just down the road and a great way to spend a morning! I would highly recommend this place to anyone you cannot go wrong with it or the area!

We spent 5 nights at Villa Beach and should have stayed longer. It is right on the beach and we spent many wonderful and relaxed hours and meals sitting on the balcony looking right onto the beach. Heaven on earth, what a position. Villa Beach has by far the best location, tucked away in a South Pacific setting on the beach like their advertising says yet everything close - national chain supermarket, restaurants, cafes etc all within easy walking and great central location for all the tours and attractions we went on. By the way Trish got us a discount off all our tours so that was a bonus. The villa condo is one of only 6 in the villa complex which has been designed to make each one absolutely private from each other, great design, stunning appearance and decor and really spacious and had every conceivable thing we needed. I just wanted to live there! Spotlessly clean, unbelievably so and an absolute credit to them. We made good use of the beach chairs and lounges and having sunset drinks on the beach was an absolute "must do'. Can not possibly over recommend this place, it is a jewel ! 10/10 and it made our holiday very special. A BIG thank you Trish & Graham.

Perfect location to see or do what you want in that area. The apt was clean, beautiful place and site cannot say more. Only negative pool water was cool.....but we could live without it wev'e got the sea in front.

Absolute Paradise .....right on the beach !!
We stayed at Villa Beach mid August and when we arrived my husband and I could not believe our eyes, just amazing ( and my husband booked it! ). What a location, right on the beach and the villa apartment was magnificent. The apartment looked straight onto the beach, and the sound of the ocean makes you go WOW ! We bought a bottle of champagne at the airport duty free and we just sat on the balcony and took it all in - absolute paradise - what a position. The villa apartment is decorated beautifully with exceptional quality furnishings and it just makes you relax into your surroundings. It was just like a show home, like new and it was ours for our anniversary holiday. It had every conceivable thing we wanted, nothing has been skimped on. The b-b-q on the balcony was great and we enjoyed eating there just looking at the beach. The design of the apartment was fantastic and I loved even making meals in the kitchen with its view onto the beach. We experienced some beautiful sunsets sitting on the beach with a cold drink (or 2) just soaking it all up. I have to mention that the birds and butterflies they were so beautiful, I have never seen anything like it. We walked up the beach to the restaurants and cafes of Palm Cove and hired a couple of bikes for a few hours to see the sights. If you're not sure where to stay in the Cairns area, you can't go past Villa Beach as it is definately situated on the best beach in Cairns and is so central to everything. There is also a full size supermarket just a short distance up the road that we walked to even though we had a car. It has everything, which made life so easy. We went to the reef on Quicksilver and I can't recommend it enough, a truly fabulous day that my husband and I will never forget. Also the train to Karranda and the skyrail back through the rainforest is a must do. Must thank the owners Trish and Graham for making our special wedding anniversary holiday a wonderful experience, they were so friendly and ready to help and their local knowledge of restaurants etc was the best. They really look after the property, it is a credit to them. Our memories of sitting on the beach and on the balcony just mesmerised by the sound of the beach and those gorgeous palm trees is etched in both our minds. We need to go back to that relaxed pace of the place already. Villa Beach is one of the best places we have ever stayed at, if not the best, and that's saying something.

TripAdvisor Rated: 5 Star Accommodation.

We certainly have had the most wonderful time. Choosing to stay at Villa Beach couldn't have been better, exceeding expectations. Location - perfect, quiet, central, convenient. Apartment - beautifully appointed with every attention to all needs & detail, spotlessly clean. Weather - just perfect. Would love to return and will be telling our friends about this gorgeous part of Australia.

We can well and truly recommend this place to the most discerning of our friends. Positioned right on the beach we just looked straight out onto the beach with its beautiful coconut palms from our balcony. Don't get this at home! The villa apartment is very spacious and has every conceivable thing you need and the furnishings are just beautiful. Better than the pictures. Even from the kitchen (which has everything you need) you look out onto the beach. Presentation and cleanliness was second to none. Real 5 star quality. We loved the ambience there, absolute paradise and romantic too. The apartment comes with beach lounges and chairs which we used on the beach at sunset time with the odd glass of champagne. We found the location perfect, hidden away on the beach yet within easy walking distance to restaurants and a full size major supermarket and shopping centre. We also found it very central to all attractions and places of interest that you want to see while in Cairns. Internet service there was good and inexpensive as well. Don't think twice about booking this place, it is perfect. Thank you Trish & Graham for making our stay at Villa Beach sooo wonderful.

The moment we arrived at Villa Beach we knew we made the right decission. The apartment was large and the furnishings just beautiful and the view looking right onto the beach. WOW !!! Trish was there to check us in and put us on the right track with what to see and do. We loved walking up the beach to Palm Cove for breakfast and did the odd lunch as well. Just sitting on the balcony looking straight onto the beach made us not want to go back to the rat race back home. Thank you Trish & Graham for your freindly help. You really do live in Paradise !

Incredible !
Absolutely the best vacation rental we have ever had! Very quiet location, beach just footsteps away, ocean waves breaking in the background, wonderful view from villa of ocean, and small islands nearby....sigh. The Villa is sparkling clean, wonderfully decorated and has all amenities to comfortably settle in for an unforgettable visit to the Cairns area. The beautiful pictures on their website do not do it full justice...it is amazing! The grounds and pool/spa area were lovely. Off street, secured parking and secured entry of villas, and a separate locked storage area with beach equipment is included and is large enough to hold bicycles if you have them. We appreciated having the washer/dryer and a great BBQ! The central location of Palm Cove/Clifton Beach (15-20 minutes from airport/Cairns City proper) is perfect for visiting the zoo, doing the skyrail, traveling to Port Douglas, Mossman & Daintree. We rented a car for our stay, but you have groceries, liquor store & wonderful restaurants within walking distance. Bicycles would be a great way to explore the immediate area as well. Beach is safe to walk on at night, no crocs worries! Stinger nets & lifeguard areas 10 minute walk in 2 directions. Palm Cove is 10-15 minute walk down the beach where there are restaurants, shopping, a pier for fishing, rental of kayaks, and a public boat launch. Trish & Graham are gracious hosts and available if needed. We felt this villa was a fantastic value for the money, and would return annually if we were not so far away!

We picked Villa Beach for a romantic getaway on the beach and the good ratings it gets. It's true except we think it's a 6 out of 5.

Fabulous Location and Property

5 out of 5. Just as described. What an amazing place in an amazing part of the world. The villa was just as described on the website. The villa was immaculate and in good repair. Trish and Graham were good hosts and were very accommodating. If you are traveling to the Barrier reef you need to check this villa out and book. You will not be disappointed.

Beachfront Paradise !
What a position on the beach, just like the website said ...just like a south pacific island but with all the mod cons to make life easy. And it was! The apartment was spotless and had every possible thing you could want, and what a great design with the bedrooms seperate from each other and each with their own bathrooms. From our bedroom we looked right onto the beach. Much better than the website shows. Our children loved the beach so much we could hardly get them to do all the sight seeing things. We visited the reef which was absolutely unbelievable!! and drove to Cape Tribulation which was magnificent. My husband and the children just loved Mossman Gorge and the swimming holes even though the water was cool coming down from the rainforest. Villa Beach is in the perfect position, besides being on the beach it is central to all attractions and an easy and relaxing walk along the beach to restaurants etc. (the Italian restaurant Portobello is great) Should have stayed longer but we have decided to come back to villa beach next year so that makes us feel better. Definitely deserves the 5/5 ratings it gets.

Beautiful villa right on beach north of Cairns.

My family and I recently spent 5 nights in this Beach villa. It was exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is located north of the Cairns airport, and an easy drive to Port Douglas. There are restaurants and shopping within easy walking distance along the beach, or a grocery a short drive back to the highway. The owners, who live on site, were most hospitable and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing a great beach opportunity in Queensland.

Paradise Found

As one who is always a bit wary and apprehensive of booking accommodation on the internet I can unequivocally say that Villa Beach is much much better than what we imagined it would be. Even though the web site advert is great it does not do it justice. It is truly 5+ STAR. After following Trish’s easy driving directions from the airport, Trish was there to check us in and made us extremely welcome. The large and spacious villa apartment immediately blew us away. The furnishings and decore are beautiful, the fully equipped kitchen has everything you could possibly want and the apartment was immaculately clean. All this and wow! what a position and view looking straight out onto the beach in front. My husband and I loved the short walk up the beach, bare feet in the sand, to the restaurants. Having lunch under the coconut palms was fantastic. It was like we were beachcombers. Absolute paradise! The villa apartment comes with your own beach chairs and beach lounges which we made good use of and had sunset drinks on the beach. We were in South Pacific heaven. We just sun baked on the beach and swam in the pool. (This gave my husband a chance to get another cold beer from the fridge). One of the most handiest things was that there is a large supermarket only about half a mile away that has absolutely everything. The apartment comes with its own B-B-Q on the balcony as well and we made good use of it too.

After touring around the Cairns area we found that Villa Beach is definitely positioned in the best central location to access all the attractions and Barrier Reef boat tours. We rented a car which I recommend as there is so much to see and do around the Cairns area and it gives you the independence also, but it’s not a necessity though as there is a public bus service just 2 minutes walk away from Villa Beach. We did also avail ourselves of the tour operator pick-up and drop-off service to the door of Villa Beach. We went on the Quicksilver tour to the outer reef and I can recommend it and the reef is absolutely mind blowing, also the Mossman Gorge is beautiful especially swimming in the fresh mountain water holes. If time permits I recommend a drive up to Cape Tribulation through the dense rainforest, it is magnificent. The train trip up the Karranda Range and back down the skyrail is a must do. P.S. The wireless broadband internet there was brilliant too.

I have never written a review before so I hope this helps those ‘wary’ persons like me.

Upon check-in, we were warmly greeted by Trishe. She made great recommendations of nearby restaurants, shops and activities. She and her husband are just really good, honest people, who just do a great job in running the business because they connect with people....from the heart and in the process, provide not just an impeccable place to stay in, but a wonderful experience in Cairns. The villa is perfectly equipped (and I mean perfect - there was nothing we needed and couldn't find), our rooms had everything you'd want in a "home-away-from-home"--- it had a wonderful updated decor and each came with it's own bathroom. we also had a really nice view of the beach with private access to the pool and jacuzzi area. I would highly recommend staying here for a peaceful holiday. Every cent we spent was well worth it - we left the place feeling "ahhhh....that's just what we needed!"

The entire holiday was perfect in every way, and we hope to return to Cairns soon and won't consider staying anywhere else!
Recommended for a Romantic Getaway.

We loved the apartment and location - neither was a disappointment. The apartment was beautiful, nicely furnished, spotlessly clean and the kitchen had everything needed plus extras. A very nice electric grill on the outdoor patio was great! You can see the ocean from the patio and getting to the beach was just a short walk across the street. Would definitely stay again if ever we returned to Palm Cove.

Superb property and standard of accommodation and an amazing location. The owners are extremely helpful and maintain the property very well. If you don't want to hire a car, we used Coral Sea Coaches to get us to and from the airport (www.coralseacoaches.com). They were very reliable and offered a really friendly service. Can't recommend this property enough - would definitely return.

Time in Paradise

The apartment was fantastic and the position on the beach and the sea was excellent. The weather in August was beautiful and the walk to the excellent restaurants in Palm Cove was both enjoyable and easy. Trish and Graham were extremely helpful and we are grateful for the use of the wireless internet connection! The area has many good attractions if that is what you want, but it is also a delightful venue to just relax. We will be back if we are in the area again. Absolutly 5 out of 5.

Our family recently stayed at the beautiful Villa Beach and it was fabulous. The rooms were beautifully decorated and as pictured. We enjoyed many of the area's attractions and loved the ocean views. The patio was our favorite place to eat our meals. I'm missing it already.
