Papillon Coolum
Reviewed May 9, 2010

Papillion Villas came highly recommended to us via friends.We loved what we saw on the website & booked without hesitation.On arrival everyone was impressed ( which is not always easy with teeenage boys).The three level appartment enabled everyone to find their own space inside and out. Our appartment was light airy and above all spacious with a remote control garage.The entertainment and kitchen areas came fully equipped and left us waning for nothing.The holiday was made even better thanks to Vicki, our engaging hosetess.She was able to assist with local tips,carhire,restuarants etc...Sitting back at home now makes me appreciate how good our time at Papillion Villas was. I remember having glimpses of seaviews from indoors on the couch while watching DVDs and BBQs on our upstairs deck having some giggles and watching the sun go down.Also a big must is a dip in the infinity edge pool with a stunnning rainforest backdrop.Even the odd butterfly flutters past.My partner and I would recommend Papillion Villas to anyone looking for a luxury holiday.

The host of Papillon (Vicky) was so friendly and welcoming. She was incredibly warm and keen to make sure we had a pleasant stay.

The villas were really beautifully appointed and very spacious. Papillon is nestled amongst the trees (about a 2 minute drive from the main street of Coolum) so the setting is very quiet and relaxing. The master bedroom of our villa was huge with a large bathroom and the other guest bathroom had a laundry area which proved useful.

A great spot for a mini getaway or a longer stay as the kitchen was well equipped, there is enough space for a family without living in each others space and overall, our experience was very pleasant. I would recommend Papillon to families or couples wanting a nice getaway without being in the busyness of central Coolum.

Your hosts will make you feel welcome and Papillon is good value for money.

My husband and I and our late-teen daughter stayed here for a week and the apartment was just lovely. It's spacious, very well furnished, well designed, very clean, and with eveything we needed. The 3-bedroom rainforest apartment has a courtyard garden (shaded in the afternoon) and overlooks a small area of rainforest. There is a view of the sea to the left of the balcony. The pool is quiet and hidden by the rainforest on one side. Vicky, who manages the complex, is extremely helpful, kind and friendly. If you like walking, it is an easy 10-15 minute walk to beaches and shops (with more of a hill on the way back).

Having recently stayed at Papillon Villas I shall indeed be placing them on my top list for the Sunshine Coast. The Villa well surpassed my expectations on all levels and I felt very comfortable as a solo visitor. It really was a home away from home and thank you to Vicky for making me feel so welcome. Hopefully, I shall be back with family for a longer stay.

Thankyou Papillon for helping to make my mothers 60th Birthday weekend so special. The villas are so lovely and roomy and most improtantly very clean and well equiped resulting in a very relaxing and stress free weekend for all. The pool was fantastic and the surrounding rainforest and views just made all our guests for the weekend felt very spoilt. We will deffinately be back.

I searched long and hard for a nice holiday apartment/villa in the Sunshine Coast area. When I found Papillon Villas Coolum on the web I was immediately attracted and whne i checked the prices seemed quite reasonable. So, I contacted Vicky at Papillion immediately and booked a 9 night stay in Villa 3.

When we arrived Papillon Villas were even better in real life than they looked on the web - hard to imagine but true! The Villa was very clean and roomy - two stories, 3 large bedrooms, large living areas, 2 bathrooms and 3 toilets, secure garage parking, great kitchen, two excellent balconies, top quality appliances, ocean views................

Vicky was very friendly and helpful in assisting in settling in.

The kids loved the place. There was plenty to do around the area - including two visits per day to Coolum Beach. On one day (as an example) we started with a swim at the beach after breakfast, climbed the nearby speactacular Mount Coolum - saw large goannas and various birds, back to the villa for lunch, another swim, then a walk (800 metres) on the beach track directly across the road from Papillon Villas to Point Awkright - saw a brush turkey tending its nest and watched a small pod of humpback whales travail their way down the coast for about an hour. Then dinner at the award winning restaraunt at the Coolom Beach Surf Club. It doesn't get any better than that.

The tropical vegetation surrounding Papillon is very pleasant and relaxing.

Vicky was so helpful and pleasant - seemd more like a friend than a villa manager right from the start.

I would highly recommend Papillon Villas Coolum to anyone - couples or families. Would we stay there again? In an instant!

We have just returned from a one week "away from the world" break at Papillon Coolum, and I wish we were still there! We chose Villa 3 for its quiet privacy and open Balinese style and instantly succumbed to the relaxing ambience and intimate calm of our surroundings. The Villa was fully equipped, superbly appointed with quality furnishings, fixtures and fittings and, most importantly, pristine clean. The layout of the Villa was conducive to effortless relaxation with its wide verandahs over two levels providing perfect places for spreading the newspapers out all over the generous breakfast table or lounging on the Balinese day bed with a book or two - all against a tropical rainforest backdrop abundant with birdlife singing their daily chorus, and the sounds of the sea beyond. Exquisite. Vicky and Paul were warm and attentive hosts who clearly take pride in their careful management of this particuarly beautiful Villa. We will return to Papillon Coolum's Villa 3 at the first opportunity - just to prove it wasn't all a dream.
