Great time at Palm Cove
Tahlia especially fell in love with Lulu the dog at our villas
No way, it was ******* down rain all night and still this morning when we wake up!!! Thank goodness I packed a super ziploc bag with rain coats for everyone!!! But we're not going to be put off with a bit of rain, so decided to take the scenic train journey to Kuranda. And what a great activity this turned out to be, with the waterfalls in full swing with all this rain. Very impressive engineering and some carriages over 100yrs old. The men who ...

(In the week I had applied to be an Au Pair in Brisbane for 3 little boys) 12/4 (Saturday) Today was soo boring! We can't go anywhere or do anything because of the stormy rain and wind. So we just chilled out all day reminiscing about people we had met along the way, updating our diaries and general *****ing! I booked ...
... subside. It was drizzling as we got our VERY short briefing and before I knew it we were OFF (no time to get nervous!). The rain stopped the clouds lifted and it was nothing short of spectacular. The staff and crew at Hot Air Ballooning were incredible.
We dozed on the bus back to the hotel and then needed to grab a quick breakfast and be ready in a quick hour to head to the rainforest. It was a much shorter ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Villas Palm Cove
Paul and Susan are great hosts and were very friendly booking a couple of tours for us
I would say that the villa we had was a little disappointing in terms of size of the pool
The one advertised on the website looks a lot bigger and there was nowhere to sit and relax by the pool in the sun unless you wanted to be splashed by who ever was in the pool
The garden is literally the pool and the narrow walkway around
The two sun beds literally squeezed into the walkway round the pool
The villas itself was very clean and had all the facilities you would need - 3 toilets was a bonus
And 2 bathrooms
Maybe a foot rest for the two armchairs would have been good
Th laundry facilities were good - maybe a slightly larger clothes dryer would have been helpful
Location wise - despite being close to captain cook highway it was peaceful
Not being on the main front was not an issue
- it is a pleasant 10 minute walk at the most to the front where there was a good selection of restaurants
