Villa marine is located close to the beach and surrounded with rainforest. Rooms are a little weird and quirky. But they have everything you need in them. They also have their own tour desk which is also open to the public.

Rooms are clean, but to small for 6 guests for 6 nights. Laundry should be included for that price. We stayed there for 6 nights and it was not the best for that long stay. A proper paved path from the carpark would be great, specially in rainy wheather.

A perfect tropical getaway...nicely refurbished and immaculately clean motel-style rooms with comfortable beds/linens and all the necessities for a self-catered holiday including a beautiful tropical pool/BBQ area surrounded by lush rainforest, gardens, and birdlife. Close to the beach, Yorkey's Knob Marina & Bar/Restaurant, grocer, etc. Easy on-site open parking suitable for trucks/utes. Definitely a private little oasis and worth a...

Peter, the on-site manager, is a very friendly and knowledgeable host. I stayed for a week in early October 2014 and was travelling on my own on a wildlife and photographic adventure holiday. Without Peter's help I would not have been fixed up with 2 local bird guides,(Del Richards for Daintree area and Alan Gillanders for the Atherton tablelands) who...

Villa Marine itself would get a 5 star review and host Peter was great, very knowledgable and helpful, an added bonus is that he can book any trips you hadn't planned before you arrive. The room was great, comfy bed and plenty of seating, nice outside seating area too. Yorkeys Knob has a great beach but not much else, hence...

We felt we needed to visit once more before peaceful Yorkeys Knob is "super-developed"with a mega resort of 7.000 new hotel beds. We prefer it to Cairns proper for the quiet environs,closeness to a sandy beach and wonderful bird and butterfly experiences right on the doorstep which include screaming curlews at night....weird.....rainbow bee-eaters.....beautiful.....and ,of course,incredibly huge butterflies all on site.There...

You can see I gave it five stars. This is because it was perfect for our needs but I can imagine some might feel disappointed. I will try to explain. Yorkeys Knob is a quiet suburb of Cairns by the beach. Villa Marine is just up from the beach (you can't see it from Villa Marine itself). There are only...
