I stayed for two nights at the Villa Vaucluse in Cairns. The hotel is very conveniently located and the rooms have good features - laundry, lots of space. balconies. As others have noted the rooms are somewhat dated. I had no problems with the A/C units and was quite comfortable. However since it's a small hotel and a little closer... More

My wife and I rented a one bedroom apartment in early March, 2014. The building was clean and well-kept as was our unit. It was nice to be able to cook a meal instead of going out for every meal and paying the extra price of eating out. The unit was of a nice size and the living room and... More

It's a good place with sufficient equipment including free laundry, basic kitchen facilities, clean and comfortable bedroom, toilet and bathroom etc. The place is so convenient as it's located nearby CBD. It only takes several minutes walk to shopping malls, supermarket and restaurants. Last but not least, the Manager Brett who is always very helpful and friendly that makes you... More

Villa Vaucluse is our stay of choice when visiting Cairns and we have stayed there twice now. Both times in the rainy season so quite humind but still lovely nonetheless.

I have stayed at Villa Vaucluse twice now on trips to Cairns. Not only is the location convenient, being a 5 minute walk from the Esplanade, Cairns Central, Cairns' nightlife, but it is situated close to the Captain Cook Highway, so should you choose to do some driving to see some of the outer attractions (definitely recommend it), you're halfway...

Air con needed degassing/cleaning/attention. I was perspiring at aircon setting at 22deg....as recommended. Electrical appliances were tag and tested ten years ago.... Combine that with the sassy attitude of mine host on arrival and you could be sure I would say the property and owner/manager is tired.

Staying at Villa Vaucluse Apartments in the beginning of November 2013 couldn’t been better. My mum and I had little of time in Cairns and the manager Brett made our stay pleasant in every sense. From Brett, we got an extra ordinary service in trip bookings and all necessary information needed for our stay. We certainly recommend this hotel for... More

On arrival, the manager, Brett, made us feel at home instantly. He assisted us with a number of bookings and although I was worried at first, everything went off like clockwork. I left the majority of things up to him and sure as the day is long, all those bookings were made and I did not have to worry about... More

We spent 5 days at Villa Vaucluse and we really enjoyed the place. The manager is friendly and helpful. The apt was convenient with everything we needed. Walking distance from the center of Cairns. There is also an indoor garage. It is a fine place and good value for money. Somebody before me wrote that it is "no means Luxury".... More

There are many words used here in Australia that are used very loosely by advertisers to lure customers. Luxury is one of them. I stayed at Villa Vaucluse recently on a trip to Cairns. The apartment was adequate, but by no means luxury. It was tired and in need of a lot of attention. The furniture has seen better days,... More
