Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Property We stayed with another family so had 4 adults and 4 teens for which this Villa was perfect with 4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms. We all enjoyed the pool and chilling in the cabana out of the heat as we stayed end December early Jan which was very hot for us Tasmanians. The villa was situated in a perfect spot and only a few minutes car ride to Main Street. We could not believe how quiet the area was so made for a very relaxing holiday. We especially loved that you could walk through a gate at back of property to the Bally Hooley cafe and enjoy breakfast/coffee in a beautiful setting. Would highly recommend this property we had a wonderful stay. Everyone was also so helpful with anything we needed. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent property! We absolutely loved our stay at Sanctuary at Thorton! The villa is spacious and very nicely decorated. We enjoyed the outdoor area and private swimming pool. We enjoyed the lush gardens on the property and stunning mountain views. We never saw another person and felt very exclusive. We had rental vehicles so did not use the train or shuttles, although they seemed convenient. We wish we had had more time in Port Douglas and the villa.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommended We loved the villa. The rooms were spacious and spotless and everything needed for catering was supplied in the kitchen. The pool was much appreciated. Great barbecue and outside dining area, and lots of room to laze by the pool or in the garden. We had a car, but also had fun travelling on the train which stops at St Crispins very close to the villa. We also used the shuttle buses which were cheap and convenient. The villa isn't far from the beach, where one of our party went for early morning runs and the rest of us enjoyed sunset strolls. We were very sad to leave and hope to return some time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent peaceful spot FABULOUS x large townhouse. Peaceful and well positioned. We had a car so no issues with not being walking distance to shops/restaurants, (but noted local mini buses run everywhere so still think location is fine without). Housekeeping excellent, very clean & no problem when we needed to split a king to 2 singles after one night. Very approachable. Overall an excellent choice for out family. Quiet and well appointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful property and location We loved this Villa, it was extremely spacious and very luxurious for everyone to have their own ensuite and TV. The Kids loved the pool area and we loved the Cabana and the balcony, the view in the evenings was amazing. The Villa itself was spotless and many little extras like kids toys, dvd’s and pool toys were a bonus. Most days we walked to the beach which was stunning. The drive into the main street was only 2 minutes, we didn’t use the town shuttle bus but it was convenient if we needed it. Port Douglas is a great destination we loved all that it had to offer our family.I don’t think our kids would want to stay anywhere else after this place it was perfect for us. Hope to return one day.
