Rented five rooms for one week for a whole family. Location is within walking distance to everything. Staff couldn't be more obliging. Rooms are very clean and fresh. Rooms on the pool side are more enticing. Would definately come back again.

what a surprise to fine our room had a kitchen, washer and dryer, balcony. We were only a few blocks from down town and the beach. The manager was very helpful in arranging tours, car rental and bicycle rental. All this for a very affordable price!!!

The pool is gorgeous. For future travelers, think of the neighborhood. In hindsight I would go to one of the bigger chains in town or further up the coast. If you stay at Vaucluse; may I suggest you are inducted by management on how to lock the plantation shutters especially if they are on the "ground" floor. Lock your doors;... More

Villa Vaucluse is a decent apartment-style hotel. It's pretty close to the main strip (10 minute walk to town center, 20 minute walk to the ferry pier), but far enough that it's quiet at night. The room furnishings were older, but in good repair. It's not luxurious, but it is comfortable. Air conditioning is recommended to be set at 25C... More

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.

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...
