Villa Marine itself would get a 5 star review and host Peter was great, very knowledgable and helpful, an added bonus is that he can book any trips you hadn't planned before you arrive. The room was great, comfy bed and plenty of seating, nice outside seating area too. Yorkeys Knob has a great beach but not much else, hence...

I stayed at Villa Marine Holiday Apartment www.villamarine.com.au. It was very welcoming. My apartment self contained was cosy and warm love it. To kitesurfing it's the place to be close to Cairns at Yorkeys Knob Beach. I could kitesurfing almost everyday with a great spot of flat water perfect to freestyling and do excellent strapless sessions in small and medium...

We felt we needed to visit once more before peaceful Yorkeys Knob is "super-developed"with a mega resort of 7.000 new hotel beds. We prefer it to Cairns proper for the quiet environs,closeness to a sandy beach and wonderful bird and butterfly experiences right on the doorstep which include screaming curlews at night....weird.....rainbow bee-eaters.....beautiful.....and ,of course,incredibly huge butterflies all on site.There...

You can see I gave it five stars. This is because it was perfect for our needs but I can imagine some might feel disappointed. I will try to explain. Yorkeys Knob is a quiet suburb of Cairns by the beach. Villa Marine is just up from the beach (you can't see it from Villa Marine itself). There are only...

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.
