“Wouldn't stay anywhere else.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

I am a Cairns Local and have been staying at Coral Sea Villas Port Douglas for the past 12 years. I wouldnt even think of being disloyal to them. Toni and Bruno are awesome hosts and they certainly go over and above to make sure my stay is brilliant. The units are gorgeous and spaceous. The location to the beach and the main street is less than 2mins. What more can you want from a relaxed holiday? I can honestly say that I look forward to staying with them at least twice a year. Fabulous hosts, great room rate, amazing location and immaculate units, What more could you ask for??

Room Tip: Units on western side are a bit quieter.

We are a family of five and are very pleased we found Coral Sea Villas! The Villas are a minute's walk to the beach and right on Macrossan St, the best location in Port Douglas l think. It was very pleasant to be able to just walk out the door and wander down the street or to the beach - my two oldest children are 15 & 17 and came and went as they pleased! We found the villa to be quite peaceful, relaxing and comfortable. It was clean & tidy, and set up with everything we needed for a self contained stay, and furnished for families in mind. It was also lovely to sit out on the balcony - my husband and l had a few meals out there. The pool is great, nice and private (unlike some of the other resorts where everyone can watch you from their balconies), the kids really enjoyed it, and l enjoyed sitting out there on the lounge chair with a cuppa! The managers Toni & Bruno were friendly and helpful with advice too. Initially l found it difficult to find accommodation in this location for our family of 5 that didn't cost a bomb, and l think Coral Villas is value for your money. We would stay again and will be recommending to anyone thinking of Port Douglas for a holiday.

These apartments are a refreshing alternative to the many over-priced, over-styled big brand resorts and big apartment complexes that populate Port Douglas. A small block of I think only 9 apartments, you get heaps of space, a gorgeous tropical outlook with your own outdoor terrace, peace and quiet, and all the convenience of having the managers right there if you need them.
The block is about a three minute stroll to the beach and only about the same again to shops and restaurants, but it's located off the main traffic thoroughfare, so no traffic noise.
We have a toddler and I was worried about the upstairs/downstairs layout, but secure gates can be installed and they actually work well, look nice and are not the slightest bit annoying. The layout also gave us a living space well away from the bedrooms, which is critical with little ones.
We loved our stay at Coral Sea Villas and would recommend it to anyone visiting Port Douglas, with or without kids. It's basic boutique accommodation at its very best.
The only small downside: the pool wasn't heated...

Room Tip: Only some apartments have a bath, so if that's important, enquire when you book.

We have visited Coral Sea Villas twice now, the second time was with our 1 year old son. The managers were extremely friendly and accommodating from the very beginning. They provided us with many essentials (high chair, portacot, stair safety gates) which made packing our suitcases a lot easier and our stay a lot more enjoyable. The villa was clean and tidy and the staff were always around to offer advice or help out if we needed anything. The location couldn't be better with shops and beach right on the doorstep. We can highly recommend this place to couples or families with young children as we have experienced it as part of a group on both of these holidays and found Coral Sea Villas to be excellent.

We (Husband and I) stayed At Coral Sea Villas, 1st week of August. We were just looking forward to the warm weather and to relax. As the accomodation is situated in the main street of Port Douglas we were able to wander down the street for breakfast, coffee, dinner etc.. never having to catch a bus. Four Mile Beach was also approx 50 metres away so we were able to stroll down to the beach every day and enjoy the sun.The unit was great and self contained so if we wanted to do any of our own cooking we could have but we were there to relax. The unit was very clean and even though located in the main street, very quiet. Toni & Bruno were very welcoming and approachable if we had any questions,They were able to advise us about different things that may have been happening, such as th Sunday Market also places to eat out and where to get the best Coffee.. We really had a great holiday and will definitely be booking again!!!

We are a family of four with kids of 10 and 7 visiting Port Douglas for 8 nights in August 2012. As most of our days were spent on trips we didn't want to pay the premium for the spa resorts as we knew we would never use those facilities. This accommodation was perfect. Just 50 yds from the top of glorious four mile beach and minutes from the restaurants and shops but not near enough to be noisy. Also only a 10 min walk to the marina to catch the reef trips. We had the 2 bathroom villa which was very spacious and had a fantastic layout with a kids twin bedroom on the group floor (which quickly became their den), a great living space and a nice double with ensuite on the mezzanine above and open to the lounge. The villa was clean and tidy but it was not luxuriously appointed, just home from home. It was too cold to use the pool but we did not have time! Ella was very welcoming, knew exactly what information would be most helpful. We did not book any trips at reception but they had lots of brochures and it would not have been too much trouble. We borrowed fold up chairs, a body board and bucket and spades for the beach. It was also reasonably priced considering the amazing location. We would highly recommend this accommodation as a great base for an active stay in beautiful Port Douglas.

Room Tip: Make sure you specify if you want two bathrooms as some of the villas only have one.

We (couple with toddler) stayed at Coral Sea Villas for 11 nights in July and can't speak too highly of it. The apartments are very quiet, clean, spacious and well laid out, so gave us everything we could have wanted for our stay. The swimming pool and lush tropical garden were great for the times we didn't want to go to the beach. Similarly, the BBQ was a lovely option for home cooked dinners. The apartment had everything we needed, with a nice & big living/dinning room (v. comfy sofa), amply stocked kitchen, washing machine & dryer (plus drying rack).
The location is perfect, being 50m from the top end of the beach, and metres from Macrossan St's cafes/restaurants/shops. This was fantastic for our toddler, as we weren't limited by his relatively short walking range (!), nor needed taxis / shuttle bus to get into, or around town.
But what made our stay was the warm, generous and genuine hospitality of Ellie, Toni & Bruno. With their lovely friendliness, they made it feel like a home away from home. In addition, their continual help with little things (like printing our plane boarding passes, lending us some superglue to fix a broken toy) was much appreciated.
We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 10, and loved looking out over the pool and the garden.
