The selection of suitable holiday accommodation is sometimes a difficult thing to do from afar. We’d like to help make your choice a little easier by offering the following “Seven Great Reasons” to stay at The Villa Port Douglas. They are:-
1. Great Value
Our highly competitive rates are published for all to see with confirmed discounts for mid and low seasons, as well as for longer stays at any time of the year.
We represent great value for the following reasons:-
• the generous size of the property (our internal area is over 230sqm, more than twice the size of many, plus over 80sqm of private courtyard)
• the extensive list of facilities (3 bedrooms with en-suites, indoor and outdoor entertaining and dining, gourmet kitchen, large lap pool, tennis court, private courtyard with 6 person spa, bbq, extensive private gardens, etc)
• the high quality of the property, fixtures, fittings and presentation
• all the little things like a bottle of bubbles, fruit & flowers, DVDs, satellite TV, games and books, condiments & other kitchen / pantry / laundry supplies, bathroom amenities, free local phone calls and broadband internet
• a minimum 20% discount during all Australian School Holidays (we are family friendly)
• our Hot Deal (for stays of 7 nights or more) that helps drive your holiday dollar even further (see specials)
• and above all, our great rates and seasonal and length of stay discounts (up to 52%)
You pay for what you get and while we may not always the cheapest, we are always the best value at a very affordable price.
2. Great Location
Port Douglas is the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge, the Atherton Tablelands and many historic outback towns and attractions. It has a year round climate that allows you to explore this great region or simply soak up the sun, the fun and the great local atmosphere.
The Villa Port Douglas is ideally located in a quiet residential area on the peninsula just a 5 minute walk to Four Mile Beach and a short bike, car, taxi or bus ride to downtown Port Douglas (4 kms away). We are one of just 13 private residences in an exclusive gated community on over 2.5 acres of tropical gardens.
Our secluded location means there are no noisy late night tourist venues to deal with (unless you’re part of them of course) and no parking or traffic noise problems, but with easy access to the beach, golf courses, restaurants, retail shops and galleries, supermarkets, tours, commercial and medical facilities and more.
3. Great Facilities
Some holiday rental properties provide just the bare minimum to support human life. We take the opposite approach and provide everything we like when we travel away from home.
The Villa Port Douglas includes:-
• 3 bedrooms, each with private en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobes, balconies, TV, air-conditioning and ceiling fans
• high quality furniture, fixtures, fittings, bedding, linen and towels (bath & beach)
• extensive entertainment options including 4 televisions, Austar satellite TV (in lounge and all bedrooms - two decoders), extensive DVD, book and games libraries
• broadband internet access (wi-fi)
• the best equipped gourmet kitchen you will find anywhere (including oven, hot plates, range hood, microwave, juicer, coffee maker, blender, mixer, etc)
• indoor and outdoor (undercover) dining / entertaining options
• a fantastic outdoor courtyard complete with private spa, gas bbq / oven and wok burner
• and in the common grounds a 20 metre lap pool, tennis court, putting practice green, bbq pavilion with its own plunge pool and extensive tropical gardens safely nestled in a private gated community
There is no better equipped or larger 3 bedroom accommodation in Port Douglas at such an affordable price. You will feel right at home the minute you walk in the door.
4. Great Service
Our great service starts the first time you contact us. We will give you whatever information, advice and assistance you need to help make your holiday a truly fantastic experience.
The Villa Port Douglas will be fully cleaned and prepared for your arrival no more than 24 hours before you arrive (often within an hour or two). The linen will be fresh, the bathrooms will be clean, the louvre windows, air-conditioners and / or ceilings fans will be set to cater for current weather conditions and everything will be in working order.
We will welcome you with a bottle of sparkling wine (or a suitable alternative of your choice), a tropical fruit basket and flower arrangements. There’ll even be a copy of the local paper on the coffee table.
The kitchen, pantry, bathrooms and laundry will be fully stocked with an extensive range of consumables you may need for your stay, not just a sample to get you through the first night. You will not have to rush out and buy many of the things you always need to prepare a meal, clean up afterwards or to make the body beautiful after a day exploring paradise.
We can also help you with all tours and local advice and can organise just about anything you require (e.g. baby sitter, birthday cake, chef, seafood or meat delivery, etc). How about a free ride on a sailing boat? We will even do your shopping for you before you arrive (this shopping service is a chargeable service).
We provide extensive compendiums detailing the property and its operation as well as many local tours and attractions.
We will respond immediately to any problems that arise, or any requests or inquiries you have before, during and after your stay. You can call us 24 hours a day and we will respond.
We want you to totally enjoy yourselves, come back often and tell your friends about us. We own and manage the property so we really care. This is your guarantee that we will provide impeccable service.
5. Great for Couples, Families and Friends
The Villa Port Douglas is very private, surprisingly large for a holiday rental villa and highly equipped.
Couples will find it very romantic (great for honeymoons) with the quiet tropical grounds, the private courtyard and spa and the gourmet kitchen and bbq to cook up a feast.
Families are also well catered for with lots of entertainment options and separate areas so the kids have the freedom to “spread out” and do their own thing when that’s appropriate or “required”. We also provide all the equipment you will need if you have a really young one in tow (cot, highchair, bath, playpen) so you don’t have to drag all that stuff along with you.
And groups of friends can share the fantastic facilities, minimise the individual cost while still enjoying complete privacy in terms of bedrooms and bathrooms and enjoy the total indulgence.
The Villa Port Douglas is a great base for touring, entertaining, playing or simply relaxing in paradise.
6. Great References
Anyone can make extravagant claims about their property and their service. But ours are completely backed up by our great reviews and references.
We ask our guests to score us in the following categories. The scores are the average of all guests since we opened (well over 150 groups) up to March 2012, and are out of 5.
Booking Process 4.9
Service / Staff 5.0
Quality of Accommodation 4.9
Information / Support Provided 4.9
Would you Stay Again 5.0
Would you Recommend to Others 5.0
We are very proud of the fact that we’ve never been scored below 4 out of 5 from any guest for any category. We regularly score a perfect 5 in all evaluation categories.
We have a high rate of repeat and reference bookings and that’s the best reference of all.
See our Visitor Guestbook for recent reviews and comments.
7. Great Peace of Mind
Last, but by no means least, is you want to be sure that you are making the right decision when searching for and selecting a holiday rental property. Some marketing claims made about a property can be exaggerated or simply not true. This can really sour or even destroy your holiday if you arrive and find things aren’t “as advertised”.
Also, no matter how much research and negotiation you do, you can never be totally sure you are getting the best deal possible for the level of accommodation you require.
With our Best Deal Guarantee and our Money Back Guarantee you can now have complete peace of mind that you are getting the best deal possible and that the property will be everything we say it is.
Our Best Deal Guarantee is, if you find a comparable property at a better price, we will beat that price by at least 10% (subject to availability).
Our Money Back Guarantee is, if when you arrive or at any time during your stay you determine everything it not as we say it is, we will refund the unused portion of your rental payment (up to the full 100%) and we will assist you in finding a property that meets your expectations (if available).
Just as importantly, you can be secure in the knowledge that you are dealing directly with the property / business owners, not an agent trying to look after hundreds of properties during a hectic tourist season.
Now how’s that for great peace of mind?
So you can check our always up to date availability calendar and / or you can make a booking request to secure your preferred dates.
We look forward to greeting you on arrival and helping to make your holiday experience a truly memorable one should you choose to stay with us.

More Property Details
With 320 sq metres of private indoor and outdoor living areas (more than three times the size of most holiday apartments), as well as 2.5 acres of lush tropical gardens and facilities, The Villa Port Douglas is one of the largest villas in Port Douglas, providing unparalleled space, peace and privacy.
It is fully furnished with quality furniture, fittings and fixtures throughout.
The open plan downstairs area has a large lounge, dining room and gourmet kitchen opening onto a private covered courtyard with a bbq/oven, a second dining and entertaining area, and a fantastic 6 person spa set in private tropical gardens.
On the entertainment front there is a 108cm plasma Digital TV and DVD player. Austar satellite TV is installed (with 2 decoders, one in the lounge and the other serving the 3 bedrooms), as is free wireless (and wired) broadband (bring your own lap top, there is no PC on site).
There are many DVDs, games and books provided to suit all ages and interests when some down-time is preferred.
The gourmet kitchen is also well set up to cook up a storm. Apart from all the normal appliances, there is a blender, a juicer and a coffee machine to look after all your liquid refreshments. A range of condiments and cleaning supplies are also supplied so you don't have to buy all these or go without.
There is a downstairs powder room servicing the living areas and of course there are full laundry facilities with washer and dryer if you like to pack light.
Upstairs there are 3 large bedrooms disposed as a king, a queen and a double king-single (can be made up as two king singles or another king).
Each bedrooms has its own private en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe, balcony overlooking the lush tropical gardens, TV (with Austar), air-conditioning and ceiling fans.
One en-suite bathroom has a spa bath and shower, another has a bath and shower and the third has a shower.
Quality bed linen, bath towels, pool/beach towels and personal amenities are provided for all guests.
A lock up garage and a second off street parking space are available for your exclusive use.
In the common grounds of the complex there is a tennis court, two pools (one a 20 metre lap pool), a putting practice green and a bbq /entertaining pavilion in luxurious tropical gardens. We have sun lounges, pool toys, tennis racquets and balls for your use.
Being one of only 13 units in the privately held group, with over 2.5 acres of common grounds, your comfort, privacy and enjoyment will not be compromised by over crowded, noisy accommodations with little or no access to these facilities. In fact most of the time, you will probably have them all to yourself.
Things to See and Do In and Around Port Douglas
If you've been to Port Douglas before you'll remember how you felt when you had to leave and hadn't seen or done all the things you wanted to in the time you had allowed. If you haven't been before, please don't make the same mistake and think you can "do it" in a few days.
The must do's include the outer Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and the Atherton Tablelands (each at least a full day and often more), Mossman Gorge, The Wildlife Habitat and Hartley's Crocodile Adeventure (each at least half a day).
Then there's shopping, dining, Four Mile Beach, fishing, whale watching (in season), golf, jungle surfing, Skyrail, sky diving, wind surfing, hot air ballooning, bush / jungle walks or bike rides, sea kayaking, arts and craft galleries, indigenous cultural experiences and much, much more.
We can provide valuable (but free) local advice on what might suit you the best based on your priorities, weather conditions, upcoming events and the season. We can also make all your bookings and arrange transport and transfers.
Oh, and don't forget a little relaxation by the pool or in a local bar overlooking the inlet watching the tour boats come and go, or a sunset walk along Four Mile Beach, or celebrity spotting in the many bars and restaurants in this one-time "sleepy fishing village", an ambience that remains today.
There is absolutely no shortage of great things to see and do in this internationally famous dual World Heritage Area, no matter what your interests are and no matter what time of the year it is. Our year round tropical climate means there is no closed or off season and no "best time" to come. Its always great.
But unless you're like us (who came for a holiday and stayed a lifetime) you will have to return home at some point, even if it's just to save up for your next visit. So please spend as much time as you can to avoid the disappointment of going home before you've at least seen and done the essentials.
