“Great location, facilities and apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

These apartments are well appointed, ours had 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms. Our family of 5 were very happy with the furnishings and decor. Great balcony with table seating 8 and several lounges to relax after a day out on the reef. Lovely pool set in a tropical and lush garden, also housing a super BBQ with tools provided. Plenty of sun lounges, tables and chairs in this oasis. Walk 1 min out the back to the main shopping precinct, and 4 min out the front to the 4 mile beach. Sue and Greg, the resident managers, are delightful and will ensure your stay with them is a happy one. They have bikes for hire which make for a great day out exploring what PD has to offer as well as a blissful ride along the beach. We will definitely be back (again!).

We have just returned from a week staying at Verandahs in Port Douglas and had to write a review to show our gratitude to the staff at our accommodation.

The apartment itself was very well equipped, with two good size bedrooms with ample storage, two bathrooms, a comfortable lounge/dining space, fully equipped kitchen and BBQ and a sizeable balcony, in fact as a family of four, we could have had a dining table each given the outside furniture available. The pool in the complex is very picturesque and well maintained as can be seen in the photos of the facility.

The apartments are based a two minute walk onto Maccrossan Street in the centre of Port Douglas, five minutes from the beach and ten from the marina, so perfectly situated for all activities. I won't go into detail, as this is a review of the accommodation, but this is a beautiful location for a holiday, offering unique experiences.

The real winner for us at the accommodation, however, was the attitude and support provided by the staff at Verandahs. Sue was very helpful on our arrival and pointed us in exactly the right direction to maximise our experiences and time in Port Douglas. She was then away for several days and Kathryn took over, helping us make the right decisions in dining out and was a great hit with our kids. This attitude was replicated by the whole team, but I havhighlighted those we had greatest contact with.

I would recommend the accommodation to anyone, in particular families given the facilities. This was a once in a lifetime (probably) holiday for us and Verandahs helped make it so.

Great place to stay, spacious, clean and very well equipped apartments. We had a two bedroom / two bathroom apartment with a pool view. Lovely warm pool with BBQ area. Loved our own BBQ on our balcony. Fantastic location, so close to the main street and one block to the beach. Sue and Greg, you are wonderful hosts, nothing to much trouble. Best place we have stayed in at Port Douglas. Thanks again. Would highly recommend. The Ball Family, Christchurch, NZ.

Our two bedroom / two bathroom apartment had excellent facilities. The kitchen has everything you need, the outside balcony has a clothes rack and barbeque, and there is an internal laundry. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. We were visiting for a family wedding, and only stayed 3 nights, but wished we had longer. The facility is in a great location - between the heart of Port Douglas and the beach. We could walk to the wedding chapel and the reception, so didn't have to worry about driving home. Like most places in Port Douglas, there are no insect screens on the windows, so you either have to close the windows at night or deal with the mosquitoes. But there are ceiling fans and air conditioning in each room. We didn't want to come home.

Room Tip: Rooms on Davidson St may be a bit noisy. We stayed at the back overlooking Owen St and it was reason...

We couldn't speak more highly of our apartment or the kind and friendly service we received from Sue and Greg during our week at Verandahs. The apartment was a very good size (we booked it as a 1br/1bth and the 2ndbr/bth were blocked off accordingly) with nice furnishings and a pleasant outlook. The location was a hop skip and jump to both Macrossan Street and Four Mile Beach. The service at reception - to book trips, recommend eating places, organise bicycles, provide some basic first aid - was exceptional. We will certainly return.

Stayed for two weeks and left very impressed. Very well managed by very friendly people who would do anything for you and weren't afraid to make recommendations, all of which were spot on. Stayed in a two bedroom/two bathroom apartment which was spacious, well appointed and modern. Great location also, within easy walking distance of the marina, supermarket, restaurants and cares, hire car depots etc, and with a great little bakery less than 50m from the front door. Offer a good range of tourist information and will happily book your tours for you. Very family friendly, with plenty of things for the kids to borrow. All in all, good accommodation in a great location at a reasonable price and run by very helpful and friendly people. We'll be back!

Room Tip: There is no elevator, so choose a ground floor unit if you can't manage stairs. Apartments are s...

So happy with our 2-bed, 2-bath accommodation at Verandahs. The apartment is well-appointed, clean, and has nice decor. Location is fantastic just off the main road and a short stroll to the beach. Staff are very friendly and ample free parking on site.
