Villa Vaucluse Apartments
Ranked #42 of 84 Speciality Lodging in Cairns
Reviewed 21 November 2016

I fly up to Cairns once a month for business, and always stay at Villa Vaucluse. The rooms are always clean and neat - nothing too flash - but ideal for anyone needing quiet, central and private accommodation. The longer I stay, the less I pay. Internet is fast and the managers are always friendly and accommodating. If you want an easy, trouble-free place to stay, you can't go past this place for value.

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side are great.

Be aware there is a construction site next door, we were Not aware of this on booking, however, location Is good, approx 5 mins from Town Centre on foot. Relatively quiet despite Massive crane!! Clean tidy functional and a great no thrills option. Be warned, or thrilled, there is a quirk to the bathroom facility's, ie a window looks from the shower into the main living area,,...yes you read that correctly..it can be closed...but only from lounge area..which if shareing with obnoxious friends could prove fractious!! Sofa bed
, cane variety was to be truthful, hedious...and uncomfortable. However bedding was quite comfortable, however room is austere with high windows with no view. Stayed at rear, over looking pool, quieter , appears better option than road. Property and surrounds are as neat as a pin. However furniture is very dated. No oven, but bar fridge and microwave more than adequate. No elevator, 2 flights stairs ..stairs also from street front approx 8, so heavy bags, and or mobility issues or wheel chair forget it. In conclusion, this Is a budget friendly option for those who want to be close to town centre with a pool, balcony no real view but neat and tidy and wallet friendly.

Room Tip: Get pool,side room. Room 15 has only one neighbour!!

When booking we opted for a low cost budget apartment in a reasonable location, did not anticipate a building site next door though. Like many reviewers we were not so much welcomed into the Apartment as"inducted" by the on site resident manager into the many flaws to avoid, security, Air Conditioning problems at 25deg C, Open Door Policy for making Toast etc. The apartment was clean and tidy, but tired, worn out and need of complete refurbishment. Doubt this will happen as the owner is trying to sell out. Wifi was free to a certain limit, but coverage is very poor so you can never use it anyway.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear avoid road noise but attract strong afternoon sun, AC does operate below 25C despi...

Stayed here for five nights. First impression from outside it looked a tired block. When we got in the room this first impression carried on. Several points of issue.
1: couldnt open the curtains as the sun hit the window from midday onwards. (Air con couldnt cope with the heat.
2: bathroom was shabby, chipped counter, a piece of wood 2ft square had partially come away from the ceiling
3: same as previous review leave door open when making toast, no foxtel as advertised, very tired sifa bed.
In my opinion this block needs a overhaul the manager is looking to sell the management rights.
I know you dont stay in your apartment much when in holiday but it does need to be a place that you can relax in. This is not that kind of place.

This is a relatively small complex of apartments with a garden/courtyard in the middle giving a feeling of space as you walk in. It is only about a 5 minute walk to the esplanade, yet despite the central location it is quiet and calm. The apartment was comfortable, clean and the "elephant" towel arrangement on the bed was well worth a photograph!
We arrived late one evening and left early three nights later - both of these timings were accommodated with ease. We found the manager really helpful; we welcomed his input on the range of tours available (the two we went on were fantastic) and on places to eat.
