We just returned from a 3-week holiday in Australia, which included a 9-day stay at Villa Marine. Six of us (4 adults, 2 children) stayed in the Family Apartment and were very comfortable. The apartment was clean, bright, and airy; the kitchen was well-equipped and there was plenty of closet space. The patch of rainforest that adjoins the property is...

We stayed five nights at villa marine. The unit needs a thorough cleaning and some TCL. The beds were clean and comfortable and the kitchen was relatively well stocked. The couch and floring felt grimy and needed a serious clean. There was an ant problem in the unit we were in (very typical on north queensland) so this is not...

What can I say? Peter is one cool guy. After stressful day of flying into Caines, Peter took over our trip planning and booked us on the best dive boat in the reef. I'd been snorkeling before and thought I'd seen it all, but my two trips were completely different experiences all thanks to Peter. The Villa itself is quite...

All you need during your holidays is unexpected experience of beauty and relaxing atmosphere! After rough Aussie outback, we were looking for something more...let's say sophisticated. And found it in the most awesome place you can imagine - beautiful appartments within gorgeous garden flowers, super quality service and independance! That's how it is in Villa Marine.

This place is beautiful and clean. It is a bargain for the price. Just a block from the beach. Villa Marine is quiet and out of town. But there is still a supermarket 5 mins walk away and a bus stop a block away. The owner is very friendly and knowledgable and will go out of his way to make...

Villa Marine apartments gave me exactly what I needed: a quiet, peaceful stay in a beautiful tropical garden setting. There's a pool surrounded by palms, or you can walk to a quiet beach. I liked the feeling of complete independence: I could do my own thing at leisure. The owner/manager Peter is very helpful if you want to get out...

We stayed 4 nights at Villa Marine in February 2014. Great location. Great value. Outstanding service from owner/operator Peter. Peter set up our Great Barrier Reef diving and Green Island excursions. Peter is a diver and his recommendation to go to the outer reef was spot on. Peter also set up our Kuranda tour via scenic railroad and skyway return....

Stayed for three nights at Villa Marine Holiday Apartments. My unit had a nice equipped kitchenette. Milk, tea and coffee supplied. Pool was also nice. The beach was half a street block away. Beach has an anti stinger net in place. Nice and quiet being convenient to Cairns by car or bus.
