“The Best Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2009

I've been to Port Douglas previously and this place is great. Right on the main street but well away from the noise, 2 minute walk to the beach, nearby restaurants etc. Nicely appointed self-contained rooms with good on-site facilities. I wouldn't hesitate in coming back.

Toni and Bruno (resident managers) really added value to our 6 night stay in this great location at the quiet beach end of Macrossan St, they were extremely hospitable and helpful with any information, advice or arranging trips, transport etc. Clean comfortable units with all you need for a relaxing stay in Port Douglas. Great value for money. Highly recommend!

The Coral Sea Villas are in a great location! You can walk every where! To the beach, into town and to the harbour! The villas are clean and really nice and big. There is even a washer and dryer, which we were in desperate need of. The managers, Bruno and Tony are so helpful, and nice. They will help you with anything that you may need. The pool is nice and quiet and very relaxing! Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

This was not our first trip to the Coral Seas Villa's, it is in fact the past four years running for us, so it has to be good to keep us going back, and this time we went for three weeks and stayed for three months.
We have been returning to Port Douglas at least once a year for the past 20 years because it is truly one of the best laid back, upmarket little gems on this planet, we have travelled far and wide and still can't resist Port Douglas.
The Coral Seas Villa's are particularly special because of the hosts, Bruno and Toni and the location is almost right on Four Mile Beach. The Villa's are really comfortable, private, with plenty of room, and a good size jungle pool, with only 9 Villa's they are very well managed.
All I can add is that we will be back.

We went to Coral Sea Villas in November and we couldn't have hoped for a better apartment/villa. The propriators Toni and Bruno are really friendly and couldn't do enough for you.

They're situated in the right place also, right next to the beach on macrossan street and on the main road for shopping and restaurants etc.

I would recommend Coral Sea Villas if your planning to go to Port Douglas.

We are a family of 4..inc 2 children aged 6 (girl) and 8 (boy) from N London, stayed at CoralSea Villas for 7 nigts in aug 08.

Location: absoluley perfect, brilliant and in Port Douglas it really does come down to location , location, location.Come out of the property an look to the left and THERE is the sea and being this end of the beach we were near the stinger nets and life gaurd. Being further away from this end of the beach/town would have meant fair walk for the children. Looking to the right is the beginning of the main high street, shops and restraunts but Coral seas is not effected by traffic or noice... it is truely ideal.

The villa itself: we stayed in the stanard one. It was very clean, all the appliances worked, the whole villa was fresh, comfortable, functional and quiet. (The near by building work has finished we were not disturbed at all). We all slept really well including the children. Our villa looked out onto the pretty pool. There was a washing machine and tumble drier in the villa.(We had a small patio where we could dry stuff the superior ones had a larger garden). There were very nice and well maintained communal outside areas.

The owners/managers: from my first enquiry in Dec 07 to our last day there, Toni and Bruno were helpful, friendly, proffesional, considerate, offered adviced when needed; they have a super local knowledge and are well know around the town and all whilst remaining completely relaxed and chilled.

We have travelled much staying in all sorts of accommadion and all sorts of settings around the world but theThe Coral Sea Villas in PD has gone to the top of our list. we highly recommend it;it suits families (the kids loved it, they were safe, comfy and happy and Toni and Bruno seemed genuily pleased to have them there which is not always usual) or 'grown ups' alone of any age, it's a great 'home' to come back to after a day out and about.


Port Douglas is such a fantastic place for a holiday. There is so much to do let alone just be on the beach. 2 things though:1. if you want to hire a car locally book it in good time(2 days notice) 2.Eating out can be expensive, hence having a clean and functional kitchen and Bar bQ area at Coal Seas was a great big plus...if you do want to eat out it is worth making a reservation.

We wish Far North Queensland was a little nearer !

Coral Sea Villas is in a great spot - just metres from a glorious beach and really close to the restaurants and shops of Macrossan Street. It's at the quiet end of the street so there's little traffic going past. We had a really relaxing week-long stay - the apartments are comfortable and well equipped. The real highlight of the place is the owners - Bruno and Toni strike a perfect balance between being friendly and welcoming while being thoroughly professional and efficient.
We loved our stay and would recommend it to anyone. (By the way, if you've seen the place on Google StreetView and worried about the cranes next door, don't - they've long since moved on and there is no construction work happening there...)
