“Great location, excellent staff”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

This is the place to stay if you want to be central to the shops, restaurants and other attractions in Port Douglas including the marina. The staff were excellent - not just goodie I find elsewhere. They were very helpful in showing me to my apartment and looking after my luggage.

We loved our stay last week in Villa san Michele. The one bedroomed apartment was so clean and perfect – air conditioning, ceiling fans, cooking facilities and fridge. We were made most welcome by the staff who were so helpful and friendly, recommending good places to eat, trips and making bookings for us. The location is fantastic and so central – you can walk to the shops, the wharf and the beach and there are so many good restaurants close by.

Thoroughly recommended and we will be back again.

Room Tip: We felt the ground floor rooms fronting the pool were great - especially the corner rooms.

Friendly & helpful staff. Great location in the middle of town and close to everything. Clean, tidy apartments that where generous in size and very comfortable! Couldn't speak any higher of Villa San Michele! We will be coming back!

We spent four nights at the Villa San Michelle and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment was clean, suprisingly spacious and comfortable. We made good use of the pool and the BBQ. Staff were helpful and friendly. So centrally located that we walked everywhere. Would definitely recommend the place for families.

Room Tip: We stayed in apartment 15 which is at the back of the property. Very quiet.

Well, this was a gem! Just driving into it felt like we were driving into a villa in Tuscany. The decor and ambience was stunning. Our room overlooked a rain forest and was very quiet and peaceful on the balcony. It was clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our two night stay.

Location is perfect - step out the front and you're right amongst the restaurants and shops. Couldn't get more central.

I don't think I've ever come across service like we got from the Villa San Michele staff/owners. It was exceptional right from the first email confirmation giving us some much information about the place and also the activities/tours they could book on our behalf. When we arrived Olivia welcomed us like we were old family relatives and all questions about the location area were answered - even finding some bars that had "Happy Hour" cocktails!!

Guests have free parking here and the choice of two swimming pools - one heated and the other normal temperature. Both are set in stunning gardens with BBQ's and lounges free for all.

I would HIGHLY recommend this property and will most definitely stay here again next time I come back to Port Douglas.

We spent 4 nights at this beautiful Villa at the end of October. We loved it all! The look is enchanting. Two pools in the flower filled courtyard, a real bbq grill to use, free laundry, cold water waiting in the fridge ...all very welcome touches. If we lived closer we would be booking a week or more every year. The staff was friendly and helpful. All the amenties were top notch and it was excellent to be on the main street within walking distance of the shops and the beach.
Very comfortable and well decorated. Lovely patio tables. Clean, friendly and well priced.

Stayed here for several nights while exploring the GBR. Found the staff to be very friendly, explaining everything about the property and local sites, especially useful when told proactively told us operating hours of several places we were sure to visit. Kitchen in apt was small but workable for hot breakfast and a dinner. I wouldn't use it for a week of full meals but to supplement eating out it was great. Rooms were a good size, we had a 2 bedroom for 3 people and that worked well. Great location, free wi-fi, parking, and laundry!
