“Great location friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2012

I stayed here based on location. Right in the middle of town next to all the amenities. Apartment was very clean and comfortable.

I would definitely stay here again but probably not facing the street. The street cleaners/traffic start quite early in the morning and if your a late riser they can be very noisy.

There is a laundry downstairs, functional, provide your own detergent which is very cheap from the local supermarket. Bed was very comfortable, clean bathroom. Would recommend.

Thank you for your review. The street-front apartments appeal to some of our guests but not all. Fortunately as you have stated we have other options with garden or pool views and are happy to accommodate any special requests!

Had a wonderful stay at Villa San Michele whilst up at Port Douglas. We were able to fit in two adults and three kids into one of the stunning two bedroom apartments; an absolute luxury for a large family like ours that are usually faced with the option of hiring two rooms. Rooms were very clean, pools were in great shape, and the location is second to none. Could not reccomend more highly for a family holiday

Room Tip: Rooms out the back have beautiful grden views and are very quiet

Thanks for expressing your appreciation of our facilities – the two bedroom apartments are perfect for families as they offer the option of one of the rooms having twin beds and a rollaway is always available for a third child.

Stayed here during the Easter weekend on our trip to Oz.....we enjoyed the kitchen and excellent location. We were close to all the restaurants, shops, beach, wharf, and grocery store. The staff were helpful and attentive. Great having a Barbeque/Grill at our disposal.

Room Tip: Stay with Courtyard room.....

Hi Les,
Thanks for the review - glad you had such a nice stay. The kitchen and barbeque mean you have the choice of dining in when you don't want to go out to one of the many restaurants we have close by. As we are right in the centre of town and close to the beach many of our visitors appreciate the location. So glad to hear you found us all helpful and attentive too and hope to see you here again.

This complex has about 40 rooms and is in a mock Spanish style. It's almost a little too Spanish in how rough around the edges it looks in places but it's actually pretty neat. Very well situated in the middle of town on the main strip. You can walk to every cafe in town if you want, plus either side of the town to the beaches.

Managers were ready and expecting us, had the apartment set to go. We have a 4 year-old so had booked a two room apartment - very spacious, though the en-suite was off what we used as the kid's room. We could have asked for the beds to be swapped, but didn't bother. Seems a bit odd to have the bigger (King) bed in the other room though.

Room was clean and kept that way. Facilities were good, including cooking in the room and a dishwasher. Good air-con in each room as well as ceiling fans if you didn't want to chill as much.

Two pools, though the one on the eastern side of the complex is shaded most of the day. Which is probably an advantage in really sunny weather, but we chose to sprawl like beached whales over at the other. Also a bbq at that pool; budget end bbq but perfectly functional; tools provided.

Helpful and friendly staff. There was also maintenance work going on (mainly painting but also some air-cons being swapped I noticed) which is good to see. The complex is getting a bit tired so some remedial work like that is a plus. It didn't interfere with our enjoyment of the stay.

Laundry is located downstairs in a corner of the building - machines are not exactly commercial grade but they worked and did the trick. No charge for use (but powder may not be provided - we found some, then bought more, which we left behind. I think that sort of recycling is what keeps these places going!).

Room Tip: If you don't like stairs, make sure to ask for a ground floor apartment. Pay the $10 per day...

Many thanks for taking the time to review Villa San Michele after your recent stay with us. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope to see you again. Sorry to hear you were not 100% happy with the poolside BBQ as it is a Weber Q300 (very popular and trusted brand in Australia) which scores 4.91 out of 5 on Product Review. It is a large size capable of cooking a meal for up to 10-12 adults. To answer your query regarding the larger king bed being situated in the 2nd bedroom, this is due to the fact that this bed can also be split into 2 single beds for families travelling with more than one child. This also makes our 2 bedroom apartments perfect for both families and two couples sharing! We were glad to hear you found the complimentary washing machines and dryers of use during your stay - regarding washing powder, our reception sell sachets for just $2. Thank you for bringing it to our attention that this is not clear to our guests - we have now placed a sign in the laundry advising this. Thanks again for your feedback from all the team at Villa San Michele.

We have been to the Tropical North often and stayed in a number of places. When we planned this trip i wanted a very quiet relaxing week and this is what we got at the Villa San Michele. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. We had requested a quiet room prior to check in and were not disappointed. The balcony was large and we could sit outside or go to one of the pools and feel like we were the only people there. The staff were very helpful and polite, nothing was too much for them. The location, in heart of Port Duglas meant we did not have to use the car much and could easily walk to breakfast and dinner every day. I would recommend Villa San Michele to anybody who is looking for good value, clean amd comfortable accommodation in the heart of Port Douglas

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear of the property are nice and quiet day and night

We were delighted to read your review and to learn that your stay was exactly what you wanted. Our apartments at the rear of the complex overlooking gardens are perfect for those seeking quiet and relaxation. Fortunately, we have something to please everyone as we can also accommodate guests with pool view, or in street front apartments – great for people watching! Also, thanks to our central location driving is not necessary and makes it very stress-free. Thank you for your recommendation and we hope to see you here again.

My partner and I have stayed in several properties in port Douglas but I've always been curious to try out San Micheles' Mediterranean style villas at the end of the pretty driveway right in the heart of the villages main street. A kid free weekend finally allowed us the opportunity. A lovely lady named Jenny checked us in (we were given both an early check in and late check out) and directed us to our one bedroom suite. The apartment was beautifully cool on entry (it was 32 degrees outside) the air con having been turned on in readiness for us. The apartment was spotlessly clean, simply yet tastefully decorated, self contained and had a decent sized balcony. There are two pools on the property, poolside BBQ areas, free laundry facilities and plenty of parking. The wonderful location gives you immediate access to all the wonderful shops, cafes, restaurants and is less than a ten minute walk to the beach and stinger net or in the opposite direction the Marina. There is a Post Office on the other side of the road and supermarket, newsagency and chemist within a three minute walk. I highly recommend Villa San Michele- we will definitely be back, kids or no kids.
Room Tip: Our room was at the front of the complex overlooking Macrossan St. Although inside the apartment was very quiet with the door closed there was traffic noise during the day (it is the main street) when sitting on the balcony.This didn't bother us as we quite enjoyed people watching and the traffic seemed to die down around sunset, along with the heat of the day, which made watching the world go by with a cold drink in hand a must each evening (note-the balcony is quite private) . If this doesn't appeal though ask for a room overlooking the pool, all of which are at the back of the complex, when booking.
