“Great location very peaceful”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

If you want somewhere to stay that is in the centre of town, quite, clean, close to everything in town (5 minute walk to the beach, less to good restaurants) this is the place to stay. The staff (especially Karen) are very friendly and most helpful when it comes to booking trips and other queries. Had couple of small issues with the fridge & toilet, both fix immediately without any bother. Only down point, would be we were on the 3rd floor (not elevator). My wife had some difficulty with the stairs.

Stayed October 2012, traveled as a couple

We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed our unbeatable location - right in the heart of Port Douglas, yet still peaceful and quiet. As you mentioned we do not have a lift however please contact us directly and we can allocate you a ground floor apartment. Thanks again for taking the time to review Villa San Michele.

After viewing trip advisor for hotels for our 5 day stay in Port Douglas, we decided upon Villa San Michele. Upon arrival we were delighted with the central location. Shops, restaraunts, 4 Mile beach and the Marina were all within moments walk. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. Highly recommended.

We stayed 2 night in this fantastic resort, it's in the centre of town which is wonderful as everything is walking distance. We found our unit very quite and very comfortable with a lovely Tuscan feel. The receptionists (Karen) is kind and friendly and helped organised a couple of tours. She has extensive knowledge of the area which we found fascinating and extremely helpful. Thank you Karen xxx Chris Norrie

We stayed at Villa San Michelle for 11 nights. As a family of four we were nervous about the size of the two bedroom unit but were pleasantly surprised. It was very spacious with two bathrooms and a large living area. The apartment (number 22) was on the ground level which was ideal as we had to use a pram every day for our one year old. We looked out onto a garden setting which was very peaceful. The staff were helpful and friendly and had a porta cot made up beautifully for my baby. The apartment was dark but we actually enjoyed being able to escape the heat and sun occasionally. The only thing that was dissappointing was that the apartment only got serviced midway through the stay. When it did get serviced it didn't get a mop or a vacuum. I had swept and swept but with two young children I really wanted a good clean as we saw some cockroaches lurking. But really enjoyed our stay and i would go back the location is incredible.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with kids still needing prams go for the ground floor.

Thank you for taking the time to review Villa San Michele. We are pleased you found our two bedroom apartment spacious with plenty of room for your family of four. As you mentioned our ground floor apartments are very handy for families with young children and prams. Regarding the servicing of our apartments we do offer both weekly and daily service rates. The weekly service rate includes a mid-stay service on stays of 5+ nights. However for a small additional cost it is possible to have the apartment serviced on a daily basis. Thank you and we hope to welcome your family again.

This tasteful resort that looks brand new in the centre of Port Douglas is a real gem. You are literally just steps from everything on the main street and an easy five minute walk to the gorgeous Four Mile Beach (which has to be one of Australia's best). Apart from that the accommodation is ideal for a beach holiday - comfortable with everything you need and all in sparkling condition. The resort itself offers two smallish pools for the times you want to take a dip but don't want to walk to the beach. We found the management 100% on customer service in helping us with any enquiries and making tour bookings.

Room Tip: Some rooms are on street level and some are on the same level as the pools.

We have spent fantastic 9 days in july in port Douglas. We got everything we wanted by staing in Villa st Michele: heated swimming pool, walking distance to the beach, sunday markets, marina and shops.We arrived on saturday and were able to buy fresh food at the markets for the whole stay. We walked everywhere and had relaxing experience without need for the car.Staff members were very informative and helpful us with transferes from aiport, best reef trip, best choce of the restaurant. We had small inconvinience with the noise from italian restaurant on the first night. We like quiet place and were given room far away from the noise with balcony and garden view. We spent most of the time in pool or walking on the beach. I loved functional kitchen for easy food preparations.I am very grateful for the every staff member we had and their undestanding of our needs.Thanks for fantastic time Villa st Michele. Before you book your accomodation always phone in to specify your room and location requiments to avoid dissapointments during your stay. We will choose to go to port Douglas on every ossasion we can.

Room Tip: Call hotel and ask them to accomodate your preferences before you book the accomodation.

We liked it so much we would stay forever, if we could. We got huge apartment with 2 bedrooms, living room with kitchenette, 2 bathrooms and balcony. Close to everything. Maybe 15 min. to marina. We parked car in a garage and forget about it for 2 days. You can stroll everywhere you need from this location.
