“Home away from Home....fabulous.”

As many travellers, we spent hours and hours on the Internet and TA looking for the perfect accomodation in either Palm Cove or Port Douglas. We decided on Villa Blue in Palm Cove and were not disappointed. The location was a 10 minute walk to the beach, the fishing pier and the village - lots of good people watching in this area.

The home is a bungalow with 3 lovely well furnished bedrooms, a kitchen with all amenities (full size fridge, double dishwasher, stove) including condiments, a comfortable living/sitting room with big screen TV. Although there is no laundryroom per se, there is a washer and dryer in the garage which is easy access to the main part of the home. In the large, tropical backyard complete with howling kookabura birds is a salt water pool, an eating area with large table and chairs, a full size BBQ and lounge chairs. Everything in this rental is provided to welcome you including a computer with broadband internet access.

Villa Blue was a nice alternative to hotels where you have to buy all your meals - restaurant prices in Australia and Palm Cover are very expensive. For example, we had 4 single pizza's at a local pizza place and paid $96. Villa Blue is a few miles away from a large grocery store and bottle shop (liquor store). Lots of savings when you have 2 couples or a large family and you don't want to eat out for all meals.

We almost didn't stay at Villa Blue as we did not like the terms for paying the deposit. Lots of money upfront and the remainder 6 weeks before we arrived. That being said, I understand from a small vacation rental owner - they need to ensure the rental is confirmed as it would be very costly to them. i am glad we returned to our original choice - Villa Blue.
