“lovely apartment,very good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2006

travelling as a couple with our teenage daughter,having 2 bedrooms was a real luxury compared with fitting the 3 of us into 1 hotel room.the apartment we had was both spacious and very well equiped,with nice furnishings and satilite tv.the location is a real bonus aswell,being less than 5 minute walk from either the beach or the main street.
this was our 1st visit to queensland and was intended to be a quiet 5 days in the middle of a busier holiday and in pursuit of this port douglas was a fantastic choice.we ate out every night and found the quality of food in each restaraunt we visited to be of a very high standard.the town has a really nice laid back feel and is somewhere we are already looking forward to visiting again.
if we had a complaint about verandahs,it was only a small one and that was ,the small pool area was too overgrown making it difficult to lounge around it during the day.it would certainly have benifited from some pruning.that aside we were very happy with our stay.

We wish we had three full days. One day on the reef with the Calypso Crew was awesome. Day two was a guided tour to the Daintree Rainforest. One more day would have allowed us to shop and chill out in the beautiful tropics. Verandah was perfectly located 100 meters from the shopping strip and beach.

We arrived in Cannes and hired a Bus to take us to Port Douglas. Only experienced drivers in Australia should rent a car and attempt the drive. The bus affords many beautiful views while driving. The trip is and hour and fifteen minutes.

Port Douglas was more than we expected. Charming, relaxed, but sophisticated. We loved the lush vegetation, and friendly people.
Plenty of resturants and pubs.

We stayed at Verandahs for 4 nights in November 2005. The accomodation was very good, well maintained and with plenty of the essentials to allow a comfortable stay for the three of us. Having two bathrooms and an outside space overlooking the pool really is fantastic for the price, making this excellent value. The location is also very good, being just around the corner from the main street of restaurants and shops, but without being noisy (the only noise we heard was from the people enjoying the pool). However, the best part of our stay had to be the friendly staff, mainly Lola in our case, who went out of her way to help us with booking before we arrived, planning and selecting our trips to the reef and rainforest, and even coming out to wave us off when we left. It is that attention to personal service that will bring us back there again and again. Highly recommended.

We just spent three short days at Verandahs in July 05 and thought it was just great. We were on the top floor of three - one unit facing the pool, my brother's facing the other direction. Great location as was very quiet, but SO close to everything. The rooms were good sized, nice bathrooms, very well-furnished, new TV/DVD recorder, nice design, groovy kitchen. Excellent for two couples or a family with lots of privacy (ie, bedrooms not next to each other). The staff were great and found an excellent babysitter so had a big night out. Only negative comment is that the pool is not ideal for toddlers. But overall very happy.

I stayed at the Verandahs Apartments in Port Douglas for 4 nights in March 2005 and would highly recommend them. The apartments are in a central location, in a quiet street just off Macrossan Street. We booked a two bedroomed apartment which was spacious and very well furnished - the furnishings are quite stylish and in my view far superior to the type usually found in rented accommodation. There is also a wide range of facilities within the apartments such as CD player, washer and drier etc. Our apartment had two bathrooms and a spacious balcony. There is also a good sized tropical pool with a fantastic built in jacuzzi!
My only slightly negative comment is that the air conditioning in the main bedroom didn't seem to work as well as it might have done (or maybe we just couldn't work it!) but then it was the height of the hot season.
The manager of the apartments was very friendly and pleasant and was happy to answer any enquiries which we had and to assist us in booking trips etc. The Verandahs are not expensive and represent great value for money. In summary, a great place to stay in a beautiful holiday destination.
