“Lovely, spacious, clean apartment with friendly helpful staff.”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We stayed in a 1 bed apt. for 5 nights week beginning 28/4/14. The complex was very quiet as I think everyone had gone home after Easter and Anzac hols. We had the pool to ourselves which was lovely. The apartment was clean and spacious with rattan furniture in the lounge and a zip link bed in the room. It was great to have a full kitchen and a laundry area in the appt. too. The reception area had lots of useful info. and Anne was very helpful and friendly. Good advice on the Daintree river cruise , to use use Solar whisper.
It's only a short 10 min walk into the centre of PD. Maybe a little dark if you use the back road but fine. We used a small torch to light the path.
We also did a self drive to Daintree and used a CD commentary bought from Anne. It was quite informative about the plants etc you would see and a lot less expensive than a tour.

A very reasonably priced and appealing apartment with all the basics we needed and a few extras.
We would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the area.

Room Tip: Worth paying for the 1 bed as they had better kitchen facilities. We were in 21a which had a lovely...

The reception staff were welcoming, friendly and informative about the area and facilities on site.
High standards of cleanliness in the studio apartment, which was tastefully furnished and well equipped with everything you would expect (and more) for a self catering stay. The villas are located within an easy walking distance of the town and the beach. I would highly recommend this accommodation and would hope to stay here in the future.
Many thanks

Superb accommodation, great facilities, good value, very friendly staff and a fantastic location within walking distance to the center of Port Douglas. We would highly recommend this accommodation, to us it was like a home from home and the staff could not have been more helpful, in particular Ann who was so helpful and gave us such a warm welcome. Our only regret was we could not stay any longer than the one week we had booked but next time, we'll definitely try and book for 2 weeks!

Room Tip: We had 2 apartments interlinked which was superb for us as a family of 6 people. We were on the top...

My wife and I and two very young children staying recently for 3 nights. The 2 bedroom apartment far exceeded expectations. This is a 3 1/2 to 4 star property so my review is based on those expectations not of a 5 star resort. Price was excellent (got a good deal online). A staff member rang us before we arrived as to when we would be arriving as they were off to the bank and didn't want to leave us in the lurch if we arrived and no one was at reception .... that gives them an extra point for service.

I would like to thank both Vicki and Annd for there welcome and concern.
I arrive at Bay Villas unfortunately with a broken leg, and I had booked a third floor villa.
They accommodated for me straight away with a villa which had a walk in shower, extra cushions.
The villa was extremely clean and spacious with a lounge dining are and kitchen, bedroom with en-suite.
Vivki arranged for me a wheelchair, nothing was to much bother.
As you would expect I was disappointed not to do what I had planned, but the girls certainly went along way to make my stay very pleasant indeed.
Highly recommended and great staff!!
Thank you so much. Jean
