“Fabulous place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Amazing apartment in a wonderful location, Verandahs exceeded expectations. Sue was marvellous, both with the kids and in handing out practical and very helpful information, from where to eat to what to do during our stay. All her suggestions were spot on. The apartment was a true home away from home, with every need catered for, spacious, modern appliances, ensuite etc. We were in a room on Davidson Street which is central to everything. The pool is HEATED which makes a massive difference if you want to spend time in water! All in all, our only disappointment was in leaving! We will definitely be back. Book a pool view room and stay a week. That's what we'll be doing next time. Thanks Sue for making our stay so memorable.

Verandahs is in a great location. We wanted a place that was close to town and the beach and this place is perfectly located. I was worried that Davidson St would be noisy but our apartment was 2nd floor in the rear section overlooking the pool and it was very private. The place was well appointed, decorated tastefully and very comfortable with everything we needed. There is a french press for coffee and a teapot, wireless internet, bicycles for hire, everything.

The best part of verandahs are the hosts, Sue and Greg, who were a mountain of information and were always available for anything, or information, we needed. A few weeks before our stay, I called Sue and asked her some questions about reef and rainforest tours and she had great recommendation and was able to explain the advantages of each provider so that we could narrow it down. She was able to recommend a reef experience that suited my wife and I as divers that also had a great intro program for our teenage daughter so, now she has tried SCUBA and is pumped for more. The recommendation for Cape Trib, Daintree, and Bloomfield track was great. We had a couple of days just cycling around and Greg had our bikes and beach towels ready when we asked. It seemed like we had personal assistants on call.

She really had great recommendations for restaraunts. The Port has a lot of options ranging from high end to pub food and Sue was able to navigate that and get us to some great places me may have walked by. Port Douglas is a great relaxing place and Sue, Greg, and Verandahs is really well tuned into it. Great stay.

An ideal location as only a very short stroll into town and all it's gorgeous restaurants. Rooms well supplied and adequate though our bed was extremely uncomfortable. Our stay was made by one of the best receptionists, sue. Nothing was to much trouble and she was a fountain of imformation and help

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking pool.

Shame we arrived late for our one night stay because this place is just beautiful. Sue was very helpful and gave us some great advice for our Cape Trib trip. My teenage boys loved the apartment and the heated pool. Great location, very well appointed and comfortable 2 bedroom apartment - will definitely return for a longer stay next time. FYI - there are no lifts so you will need to handle stairs and need to pay for wi-fi.

Verandahs is conveniently located close to the main street and shops, while being quiet in regards to street traffic and thoroughfare. Our children loved the pool and there is ample seating for adult supervision. Undercover car parking is accessible from front and rear of property. Sue and Jenny offer excellent customer advice for booking tours and suggested many activities during our stay. Our tours were professionaly booked for us. The rooms are comfortable however they are a little dated and fittings are starting to show some wear and tear and needs fixing. The aircon units are in need of filter cleaning too. Verandahs has three levels and would definitely avoid staying in the middle or bottom apartments. Noise from above is noticeable as you can easily hear the toilets, showers, walking, shutting doors/cupboards which made our stay a little uncomfortable. Overall Verandahs exceeded our expectations for customer service & location but did not for other aspects. We would choose Verandahs again if we could secure a top apartment next time.

Room Tip: Stay on top floor.

“Good service is hard to find!!”. That is unless you stay at Verandahs. Sue and Greg and the team consistently provide exceptional service, always going beyond the call of duty to make sure that guests have a great stay. This was our second stay and we are hoping to visit again sometime next year. Sue provided wonderful guidance when we were looking for activities to suit the kids. Nothing was ever too much trouble – lending us buckets and spades and a boogie board to our kids when they visited the beach, helping us to try and locate my daughter’s lost christening bracelet, making reservations and making us feel truly welcome. The apartments are very clean and comfortable and are located within a short walk to the beach and all amenities. Verandahs provides excellent value for money and good family friendly accommodation. If you are looking for somewhere to stay where you are seeking not only a good location but good ol’ fashioned service, then look no further than Verandahs!
