“We had a really lovely stay-a perfect family holiday”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

We stayed at Verandahs for 6 nights in May with our 3 children, aged 5, 3 and 5 months old, and enjoyed a brilliant family holiday in Port Douglas.

Our apartment was lovely, modern and tastefully decorated. The location was perfect, an easy stroll to beach and main street. A portacot and a really good jogger pram were arranged for us by Verandahs which made life very easy for us. We had a huge verandah which was great for the kids but did overlook neighbouring mantra apartments, so lacked a bit of privacy. But aside from that we had no complaints.

The pool was really beautiful and we enjoyed lovely swims each day. Often there were no other guests using it. (It was also one of the only heated pools I could find, which was great and necessary at that time of the year, as we discovered when we tried swimming in other unheated pools on our holiday, which were pretty chilly.) The surrounding tropical gardens were also really beautiful.

The staff at verandahs were amazingly friendly and helpful. Many thanks to Sue and Rebecca! They provided beach and pool toys, beach towels and fabulous advice about what to do in Port Douglas, with very realistic ideas about what might work best for a young family.

Don't be put off by the slightly raunchy logo on the website! To my mind, it does not really provide an accurate reflection of the lovely, tasteful place that is Verandahs Apartments.

We spent 6 nights with two grown up kids in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment which was clean, light, spacious, comfortable, modern and well-equipped right down to the safe and ipod dock in the stereo. Excellent central location within an easy walk of shops (including supermarket and restaurants) and beach. A deck complete with table chairs and barbecue was a bonus. (If you plan to book, go direct to the Verandahs website for best rates.) Verandahs manager Sue knows heaps about local tour options and more, and went out of her way to make our stay the best it could be. She was always willing and available to help with the smallest things. The only downside was a bit of noise from neighbouring guests and the street at times, but it was not a major and we had the option to close up the apartment doors and louvres and use air conditioning if we wanted. I happily recommend it.

We have just returned from a six night stay at Verandahs. We were very happy with the accommodation and service - everything happened so easily and smoothly. Sue was very helpful and informative and has gone above and beyond by locating and posting back my daughter's shoe and spoon.

The accommodation was well appointed and had everything I could ask for. I've stayed in more expensive places that have been very stingy with dishwashing detergent, toilet paper and bin bags - we didn't have any of those problems at Verandahs - they were very generous with what was provided in the rooms.

A comfortable and happy stay for our family.

Our family of five stayed for 10 nights, were happily greeted by Sue. She showed us everything we needed to know on the map and booked any tours we wanted to go on. The main street is hop, step and jump. We walked to dinner and home again. Great Restuarants all over Port Douglas.
Our 2bed, 2 bathroom apartment was great, the 2nd bedroom fitted our 3 children in with ease. The pool was heated, kids loved it. It was only a block to the beach, sue even loaned us sand toys for the kids. We did not want to leave. We would definately return there again.
Sue and Greg are the best. We stayed at other places on our way home and nothing compares.

On our trip to Cape Tribulation we decided to stay for 2 nights in Port Douglas. On our search for a nice place to stay we found Verandahs. Verandahs is a very nice, small complex of 20 apartments. The hosts are very kind and hospitable. The apartment was big enough for us (family of four) and very comfortable with 2 bathrooms and the facilities are complete. The pool was heated which is rare but in winter times an advantage.
We loved our stay and we would go there again.

Room Tip: Talk to Sue (host) about your wishes

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2011. Family of 4 from Canada. The apartments are extremely clean, well decorated and bright. The kitchen is well appointed with every utensil/appliance you would need....just like home. Swimming pool is warm and lovely. Location is perfect...2 minute walk to a wonderful beach. The main street is literally around the corner which is great as you have a wide variety of choices in terms of shopping/restaurants/bars/coffee shops. The benefit of this location that it is quiet at night. The key highlight of Verandahs are Sue and Greg. They are lovely hosts. Very friendly, very helpful and will always great you with a smile!

We stayed for 3 nights in a pool view room on the ground floor in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was nicely appointed but on the small side. Surprisingly the floors were quite dirty. The ground floor apartments are quite noisy with little privacy (no blinds/curtains in the lounge). That said they would be great for watching the kids in the pool from the balcony. The owners/managers are very nice.
