About Grant & Sharon Burnell
A nurse and an accountant who had a career seachange and wanted to share their beautiful house with the rest of the world. We now own and manage 6 beautiful villas / houses, each that we have restored / renovated or built with our passion for the tropics and Port Douglas. We love to exceed our guests expectations ....
Why Grant & Sharon Burnell chose Port Douglas
This Villa, seems to surprise everyone, price wise its hard to beat, it is very spacious and with 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms everyone gets spoilt. The pool side garden is very tropical and almost relax's you by just sitting in it! Its great for a group of adults and those with kids that all need some space. The downstairs bedroom pavilion is brilliant for grandparents, nannies or teens. Being so close to Choo Choos cafe for lunch or an icecream is also lovely for the kids and teens to walk to safely and have their own tropical adventure. Or if our adult guests don't wish to use the coffee machine, they can always pop around to the cafe for their morning caffeine in peace!
What makes this House unique
We fell inlove with the back yard, the garden is sooo tropical and the sunsets and sunrises form the balcony are devine....Enjoy!

Paradise in the wet tropics
We visited the Port Douglas area and this property made it feel like a luxury vacation.
So glad to hear this Jon. Sanctuary at Thorntons delights so many of our guests with its space, garden, pool and views. Hopefully we can welcome you back one day.

Port Douglas idyll
A wonderful ten days in a perfect villa for the whole family. Everything at hand, including the pool, great facilities, excellent service. Many thanks for a memorable experience.
Wow, we are so pleased that your family loved Sanctuary at Thorntons!
It is a great villa for families and so easy to watch the kids in the pool also in comfort. We hope you can return again one day soon! Sharon & Grant
This house is a holiday maker not breaker
The PRO list for this house is really long, Relaxing, secure, spacious, modern, clean etc etc etc
The only disappointment was that each room has its own en-suite but none have exhaust fans , so toilet smells linger for long periods of time
But overall really great for our family
Thank you for your review Jonathon! We are so glad that you found Sanctuary at Thorntons relaxing, spacious and clean and your family had a really great time! Hopefully you can all return to Port Douglas one day :) Sharon & Grant
Quiet, spacious and comfy
We are a family of 7 who have holidayed in Port Douglas each year for the past 4 years. This year we chose the Sanctuary at Thornton and enjoyed our time as much as we have in the past few years.
The home is a little bit further out of Macrossan St than we've had previously, but if you enjoy a walk, it's still walking distance. Similarly, it's not as close to the beach as others we've stayed in, but again, it's only a short walk (be careful crossing Port Douglas Road!).
We loved the warmth of the pool - it's worth paying the extra to have it heated at this time of the year. The weather was a little cooler this year than previous and the heating took the chill out of the water. The views over the golf course are lovely and Choo Choos café is a 2 minute walk in the morning for coffee.
Our family enjoyed having their own bathroom - no fights over who was showering first! The bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable.
The living area is a little small for everyone to gather together but opening up the doors to the outside means you can all be near each other if you choose to be.
We enjoyed our time, the location was safe and secure and it was very quiet.
We'd happily recommend this home.
Thank you for choosing Sanctuary at Thorntons! We are so glad that you all enjoyed the Villa and the pool and all the ensuites :)
Port Douglas is such a great holiday spot :)
