“Fantastic apartment, wonderful friendly staff!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

We recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment at Villa Paradiso, and wow what a lovely apartment with direct beach view.

The complex is in an absolute fantastic location on the esplanade of Palm Cove - basically central along the long straight strip along the beachfront that makes up the esplanade.

Eva and Dave are very friendly and welcoming to guests, as is their beagle! They offer helpful advice and just a delight to chat too.

The pool is nice and refreshing and a good size with BBQ facility and sun loungers. Our apartment was a great size, and very well furnished and maintained. It had everything we needed.

We loved Palm Cove, and even though we only spent 4 days there, we will defiantly be returning!

Room Tip: All apartments face the beach and ocean.

I booked a room for three nights for my family visiting from the United States. I was floored by the hospitality provided by Dave and Eva. Eva organized an airport pickup at the last minute. My family absolutely loved the spacious, clean and excellent quality appliances and furniture in their large apartment. I can't wait to head up to Palm Cove and stay here with my husband.

Great deal for the price. 3 of us stayed 2 nights and we were bowled over by the size. The Managers are lovely people. The balcony is magical with excellent views. The beds are good quality, the bathrooms a really good size and a full working kitchen and laundry. All clean and tidy. Lots of seating and very good lighting. Nothing to fault. We will return.

My pregnant wife, 3 year old daughter and I stayed for 5 nights in April 2013. We chose Villa Paradiso because of the location and excellent reviews and we can now see why it is so well rated.
The location is great, across the road from the beach and near the sea net for safe swimming. It is also walking distance to plenty of cafes and restaurants. The only thing missing was water views given the tree lined street blocks most of that.
We chose a 2 bedroom apartment and it was huge. Our daughter could get lost in it. It was very clean and tidy upon arrival.
The service was always friendly and unobtrusive. There seemed to be a number of other guests there at the same time but it was never busy and the pool was almost always empty and so we made full use of it.
We all loved our time there and would certainly stay again if we get back to Palm Cove.

Room Tip: Higher apartments are better for those with toddlers given the enclosed balcony. Ground floor apartm...

Thanks MKWSydney, for your review. While the Giant Melaleuca trees are a great asset to Palm Cove and contribute to the atmosphere of the area, their canopy does limit the long-distance view from the top floor, but not the beach and closer view. Some guests prefer the ground floor for its view to the horizon while others prefer the views form the higher floors, but in any event, there is always a beach view. We hope to see you here next time you holiday in Palm Cove. Sincerely, Dave

We recently enjoyed our third stay in the last year with Eva, Dave and Mr Buddy at the Villa Paradiso. What a perfect position with incredible views of the sea. During each visit we have stayed in a different apartment, and every one was as great as the last.
We have never stayed in a property as well maintained, with beautiful gardens and a lovely and inviting pool. The restaurants are many with varying cuisines, good quality food and all close at hand.
Our only regret is that having found Palm Cove to be such a great location, we have now bought our own property there and will not have an excuse to stay in Villa Paradiso again.
We strongly recommend Villa Paradiso, but once there, you will never wish to stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: Since all apartments have sea views and are of a high standard, you can't go wrong with any apar...

My partner and I have just returned from a short 3 day break at Palm Cove. This has been our third stay in as many years at Villa Paradiso and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. Driving back to the airport we were working out when we could sneak in another quick visit this year.

Eva, Dave and Buddy (the resident Beagle) are the perfect hosts and nothing is ever a problem. They even assisted us with our upcoming holiday to New Zealand, supplying a map and a list of things to see and do there.

The beachfront apartments are that... beachfront... not just a glimpse around a corner if you stand on your tippy-toes, but absolute beachfront, huge, clean and very comfortable. We stay in apartment 13 every time. Coles delivered our shopping the night before we arrived and Eva kindly put perishables in the fridge.

I cannot recommend Villa Paradiso highly enough. Nothing beats walking out onto the balcony to watch the sunrise or sun set. It is central to restaurants, bars and the shops.

We look forward to returning... sooner rather than later :)

Our second visit to Villa Paradiso, and a feature that we so totally love is the huge balcony that allowed us to dine while overlooking the beach and watching the world go by. The restaurants are handy but we don't always want to dine out and we had a brand new kitchen. Lush and colorful tropical gardens decorate the front and form a welcoming sight at the entrance, while the bbq and pools are in a very sheltered private area at the back of the building. The free internet was handy to keep in touch with the family - even if it was a little slower than were used to.

Room Tip: Lower levels have a better view through the Melaleuca trees.
