Peter, the manager, is really helpful when it comes to booking reef trips and giving advice about things to do in Cairns and the surrounding area. The pool is lovely and the setting is restful. I particularly enjoyed how quiet it was in the evenings and overnight.

Peter, the manager was truly accommodating, even for our one night stay. Loved our unit , which was well equipped and very clean. Very comfortable bed. Great pool which looked inviting. From the outside, this block of units is unassuming but we were nicely surprised. We enjoyed the shuttle to the boat club for dinner nearby.

Villa Marine turned out exactly as we’d hoped when we explored the online listing: it’s really easy to get to from Cairns, and Peter and his colleagues organised extremely good value car hire for us.
