About Grant & Sharon Burnell
We are a nurse and an accountant who fell inlove with Port Douglas. We holidayed here every year when our kids were babies, now they are teens! We love the vibe of Port Douglas and we bought this Villa because it was so spacious, and the Royal Palms in the back yard were pretty spectacular also :) We love sharing our Villa with our guests - we hope you have a great tropical stay!
Why Grant & Sharon Burnell chose Port Douglas
Spacious and luxurious - you could live here easily! So easy to catch a shuttle bus into the main strip or the marina and a fabulous little cafe around the corner. Also an easy walk to the beach - ask us about the short cut!
What makes this House unique
Coastal decor in the living areas, helps our guests to rest and relax and enjoy their time. The upstairs balcony also has great views at sunrise and sunset.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great Place, worth the whole trip for the Great Barrier Reef. Had a week with family for a 50th. 5*
Really enjoyed our stay and the house is great for 2 families as it’s got the ideal layout for Teenagers and Adults.
Poolside chill out is a breeze. The whole week has been a blast cel
So glad that 'Thornton Palms' suited your Tropical Birthday Holiday! The Villa is perfect for 2 families travelling together and those with teenagers. Glad the pool was a hit also. Thanks for being awesome guests, you are welcome back anytime! Sharon & Grant
Beautiful house with magnificent outlook over the golf course. Grant and Sharon make sure everything you could possibly need during your stay is at the house which we found out after we had been to the shops. Very comfortable beds. Just need to keep an eye on pool gate as sometimes it dosnt close properly especially if you have children. Had a very enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Thankyou Grant and Sharon for letting us stay at your house. I will definitely stay there again.
Wonderful Julie! The outlook is gorgeous from the back gardens, we are so glad the Villa ensured you all had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Thank you for letting us know about the pool gate, we shall get it checked at once. We are actually putting in new pool decking in May so the pool glass fencing and gate will also be double checked during this process also. We hope you can return again! Sharon & Grant
Best view imaginable
Thanks for an amazing 3 week stay in the beautiful Port Douglas at your incredible property Thorton palms. The grand children had to be pried out of the pool every day, not to mention the adults. We would especially like to thank Lisa who was always only a phone call away and so accommadating . Really enjoyed our stay at your fantastic property.
Wayne, so happy that you loved your 3 week stay! Kids love the pool and its great that parents can supervise them easily from inside or outside also. We would love for you to stay again at Thornton Palms :) & the sunset view each night is a bonus ! Sharon & Grant
