We stayed 3 nights at villa Floriana 1 which is on the ground floor. Unfortunately we hardly slept because of the noise coming from upstairs flat. I mentioned it to John and he said that there was a wooden floor and he was apologetic. Also, the villa is situated next to a busy road and the hospital. There is a small table outside but too noisy to have breakfast in the morning which was disappointing. It is a 20-30 mins walk to the town centre and port. The villa is spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. Our double bed wasn't very comfortable but the single beds were ok.
Great accommodation, only ten minutes drive from the airport, ten minutes walk into Cairns and a couple of minutes walk from a couple of grocery stores, a bottle shop and takeaways too. The villa is beautifully located facing the esplanade, and is a wonderful space to spend your down time in. Large lounge, fully kitted kitchen and spacious bedrooms. Just superb. Jan and John were great hosts too - super friendly and knowledgeable about the local
area too. Highly recommended!
We ended up staying upstairs in Unit 3 and were very happy with the flat. It was absolutely enormous! It was spotless, light and brigh, and very well equipped. Jan and John thought of every little thing you could ever possibly need, from a huge array of kitchen utensils to beach towels. Our unit had two spotless bathrooms, one that included a huge spa tub. The outdoor terrace was great for morning breakfast. We didn't use the pool and BBQ area, but they were also very nice - modern, clean, and inviting. The only thing to know is the flat is 20-minute walk along the promenade into town to all the restaurants and the reef fleet terminal. There is one grocery store nearby but it's a small one, so it's best to plan ahead and buy your groceries downtown and take the bus or a taxi back. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous and I would definitely stay again.
Jan and John are very helpful，even give us free ride，thx，the villa lovely，we are four，really big for us ,waterfront,only 30meters,really good location.
We had a great time in Jan and John's villa. Not only was it in a great location, but it was huge. You could easily fit 4 guests quite comfortably and still feel like you're not living on top of each other.
On arrival, Jan showed us around and had left a bowl of fresh fruit for us (absolutely delicious) and answered any questions we had. Everything was easy to figure out and the place was extremely well equipped.
The villas have their own pool too. I almost went in to the neighbouring pool by mistake, but even though their pool is a bit smaller, it was much more private and relaxing.
Overall it was a great stay and Jan and John were very helpful.
Very welcoming, fruit, cereal and milk waiting on arrival plus other condiments supplied. Excellent condition and location.
Jan and John were great. They were very responsive, welcoming, and ready to help with giving information about things to see/do in the area and places to go eat/drink. Everything in the description was accurate and we had no problems with our villa. The pictures don't do it justice in terms of the size. The villa is also conveniently located, right by the promenade, and a short walk to the more lively downtown area.
