Clean, great location in walking distance to everything you need (beach, marina, restaurants, supermarket) and very helpful staff! The pool was also clean and kept the kids entertained. Our apartment was modern and had a kitchen and laundry and decent size balcony. Definitely recommend staying here!

Great location easy walking distance to Main St

Sue, Michelle and Bec are awesome hosts and so knowledge about tours and facilities in the area. The room we stayed in was excellent, quiet and had all the features and utensils you’d need for a good stay. All rooms air conditioned, essential in the tropics. Our only negative was Austar pay TV not working, but takes a while to get that fixed due to remote location of the town. All in all, a great place to stay and I’d go back without hesitation

Clean, well equipped and convenient to town centre

Small enough to feel like a home away from home, very clean, very well equipped kitchen, staff/management friendly and helpful, pool area relaxing and well maintained. Would have no hesitation recommending this place, also very conveniently located in the heart of Port Douglas township, walking distance to pretty much everything.

Exactly what we were looking for

Pros: Good room sizes, comfortable furniture, very clean, very hospitable owners, fabulous location, lovely pool area and gardens, huge balcony.
Location: Easy access to all the magic of Port Douglas
My two teenage daughters and I spent a wonderful week at Verandahs. The apartment and pool/grounds were exactly as pictured on the website and matched my expectations. Sue and daughter Bec were unfailingly cheerful and helpful, and helped make our bookings on excursions easy and stress-free. The pool was lovely to use after a day of beach and it never felt busy or crowded, despite our stay in Port Douglas occurring during the Victorian September school holidays. The location was perfect - less than a minutes walk to the shops/restaurants, a short and pleasant walk to the Marina and the beach. Despite the proximity to the restaurants, we were never troubled by road noise. We wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in future. Thank you, Sue and Bec :)

Great hotel. Great location.

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Not much!
Location: Close to the main street but far enough away to avoid the traffic and noise.
Light, bright and clean,, and stocked with all you could need for a fabulous holiday. Great location - one block down from the Main Street so close enough to walk but lovely and quiet. Great pool and plenty of parking. All in all - the perfect place to stay and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks for contributing to a wonderful holiday.

Beautiful apartment close to everything

Pros: Everything.
Cons: During our stay( End of May) the pool was in the shade for a lot of the day. Had to chase the sun. Do not know how this can be improved.
Location: The location of the apt was just around the corner from the main street. This meant we were close to shops, restaurants & a short stroll to the beach,
We recently stayed at Verandahs Port Douglas & found it to be the perfect choice for us. The location of the apartment was just around the corner from the main street. This meant we were close to shops, restaurants, hotels & a short stroll to 4 mile beach. We were surprised how lovely the apartment was. It was spacious, modern & spotless. There was everything there to cook in but we did not use as we ate out each day. Could not speak more highly of the staff. As the apartments do not have a lift, Michelle who greeted us happily carried our cases up the stairs. Sue the manager also gladly arranged for this to happen on our departure. The staff were all bright & happy and could not do enough for us, which was much appreciated. We would gladly go back and recommend Verandahs as a perfect place to stay.
