We had a1 BR apartment. Good facilities, nice pool. Good for couples and small families. Brett the manager is very attentive and friendly. Good location on Grafton St. Central to the Cairns Plaza shopping centre and the esplanade where the waterfront action is. Would stay again as we liked the self catering.

Big apartment style rooms, with a kitchen, big living room and a standard bed room. This is not a typical hotel or serviced apartment - you need to do your own laundry (including towels, bedsheets etc) and take your own trash out (which was a new experience for us). However, the owner/manager was extremely helpful and helped us book all... More

Our apartment in villa vaucluse was perfect: clean, comfy, and had everything needed to cook our own meals. The location is close to the main street without the noise. Also, the manager was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back here and I would recommend it to everyone!

Good Location. Close to the railway and bus station. The Cairns central shopping center is only 2 streets away. There are plenty of eating places all within walking distance. Our room was quiet. It is a self-contained accommodation so you are only given the essentials to start off with. The pull out sofa bed is very uncomfortable. The mattress is... More

The queen room is big enough for the four of us, and the price is certainly fair for a self-contained apartment. The only problem is that you might have to bring along your own shampoo&body wash since they don't provide extra ones. Perfect location, everything is within walking distance. The manager is welcoming and friendly to offer information and discount... More

I recently stayed at Villa Vaucluse Apartments and didn't enjoy my stay. I found the manager to be grumpy. He wasn’t accommodating at all. At first I thought he might have been having a bad day, but his grumpiness continued during my stay. Australia was facing a cold front and overnight temperatures had dropped in Cairns. I went and asked... More

A personalized email to confirm my reservation, together with a warm friendly welcome and a tour of the facilities set the tone for a very comfortable stay. Although full for most of my stay, the layout and small number of apartments mean that most of the time you feel like you have the complex to yourself. Just three blocks to... More

Well located to the CBD, close to supermarkets and fully equipped for self catering travellers. Pool was refreshing, Brett is on the money with all the local information and if you're looking for a centrally based, functional and reasonably priced accommodation option the VV is the place.

This quiet, pretty apartment complex in central Cairns is close to the waterfront where all the restaurants, shops, the pool and the boardwalk are. Tours can be arranged by the manager. You can also walk easily to the train and bus stations. The apartment has everything you need for a stay in the city including a lovely pool in a... More

I recently stayed here with a friend for a week and was very happy with the accommodation. It is around a 15min walk to the marina area and a large shopping centre is just a 10min walk where you can get all your food needs from the Coles supermarket inside. The apartment was very comfortable, with air conditioning in both... More
