Debbie-Lyn Davidson purchased this House in 1998
Why Debbie-Lyn Davidson chose Thornlands
Our beautiful home in an acreage estate is a wonderful place to call home while away from yours. We love all things with history and a story, so much of what you will see in our home has special memories for us. An antique, vintage theme from yesteryear is throughout our home with luxuries added for a home away from home for your family and friends. On a 6000square block you don't have to worry about neighbours nearby or making a noise splashing around in the pool. It is the ideal home for an extended family travelling together or couples ready to explore Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Islands while coming home to a space to relax, unwind and forget about the bustle of the city. You will be only minutes from cinemas, award winning restaurants, shopping centres and only a few minutes from the ferries to explore the Bay Islands. With a Koala reserve on our property you may even get a visit from either a roaming koala or kangaroos that frequent our front yard. Small gatherings with family and friends are what this home is for but loud, drunken parties are not permitted.
What makes this House unique

What an extraordinary property to stay in for our family holiday.
From the outdoor pool & bbq area to cool down and the pool table, piano & family rooms indoors to enjoy game nights and family dinners in the evening, we made the most of our time at the residence. So clean upon arrival with fresh linen and strawberries with fondue as a welcoming treat. Fantastic location only mins from all you need for food and drinks & an easy trip to all the theme parks. We definitely recommend this estate and hope to return again very soon.
Property was clean an tidy
We held out daughters 18th party an d the large yard was perfect
So glad your daughter had a wonderful party. Come again soon.
A very spacious home with all the conveniences one could want or need.
This house was very spacious and the outdoor environment was excellent for our family gatherings.
We stayed over Christmas and the owner asked if we wanted decorations for Christmas, we did and they were amazing.
Sometimes in life it's the little things that bring the most joy and, with this property, it was the amazingly thoughtful and welcoming extra little touches that impressed us. My whole family was impressed and we shared a fantastic Christmas period.
All the beds were very comfortable. The house was spotless. There is nothing to be improved here. For example - During our stay, there was one minor maintenance issue with an immediate corrective response from the owner that ensured we were not inconvenienced at all.
Outstanding service and comfort in this place. .
Debbie-Lyn thank you for letting us stay in your home it was truly a blessing.
So glad you enjoyed the xmas decorations. It took me 2 days to decorate but loved doing it for your family!
80th birthday celebrations
We booked this house for a family members birthday weekend. The home had everything we required, large kitchen & dining area for everyone to cook & then gather to eat. Great outdoor area with bbq, pool, and a beautiful garden. A very hot weekend so the pool was a welcome addition. Unfortunately the lower floor casual dining area ducted air conditioning wasn't operational but everywhere else it worked well keeping us nice and cool.
So glad you enjoyed the pool! We would love you have you back anytime.
Great house & fantastic outdoor area & pool. Our family had the best time & loved every minute of our holiday in this beautiful house. Close to everything & lovely quiet setting. Dennis-Lynn is just amazing & a pleasure to deal with..she couldn’t do enough for us. We will definitely be back x
