Grant & Sharon Burnell purchased this House in 2013
Why Grant & Sharon Burnell chose Port Douglas
We holidayed in Port Douglas every year, & fell inlove with the area - the weather is summer year round, surrounded by Reef and Rainforest , it really is nature's playground. The town is just the right size for us, not too big and not too small - just right! It is a very special tropical location, with SO much to see and do. Beach Pavilions is so close to the beach, 177 steps to the sand of Four Mile Beach and a cute shady playground by the beach for our little VIP's. Secluded quiet area, but only one block behind Port Douglas Rd where you can catch a shutlle bus into town day and night. Very spacious home and perfect for big families or a 3 generation family holiday, where everyone needs some space and privacy but also a grand area to come together.
What makes this House unique
Gorgeous Old Queenslander beach house,we renovated sympathetically to keep the beautiful old timber and tropical architecture of pavilion style living. Today it has all the mod cons but still retains its old charm. Everyone falls inlove with Beach Pavilions and we hope you do also!
Pool / Spa
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The house is presented well. It has most things you need. Having a few odds and ends in the pantry and fridge was great and I don't understand why more holiday places don't do this.
The only downfall was the separate bedroom needed a good dust as it really stirred up our allergies.
It was a lovely house to stay with other families as it has heaps of room and really easy to watch the kids in the pool.
Taya thank you for your Beach Pavilions review. The pool position is great for those with little kids as you say its easy to supervise from a multitude of areas. Glad you appreciated our fridge and pantry condiments also :) We are very sorry about the dust in the bedroom, we have a fantastic cleaning team, and this was clearly ovelooked on the day. We hope you all loved your time in Port Douglas! Sharon & Grant :)
A family of 8, across three generations sharing a birthday celebration over 5 days - and this is the perfect place to call home for the week.
Plenty of space for everyone to find time to have a quiet moment; to share in group festivities; or cool off in the fantastic pool.
The main living quarters of generous proportions and a large kitchen provide an ideal space.
Each of the bedrooms are fantastically set up - with plenty of fans, or A/C for those requiring a little extra cool-comfort.
Beds were comfy.
Bathrooms are wonderful.
The hosts also assisted us by receiving a delivery of groceries the day before our arrival. Amazing commitment to ensure our holiday was a special trip. Thank you!
Highly recommend this accommodation!
And my recommendation - whatever length of stay you have planned - add an extra day or two to prolong the onset of post-holiday depression.
Wow, thank you for your Beach Pavilions review, it really is a great house for families or 3 generation family holidays. The spaces are all to encourage relaxation and enjoyment, so glad your family loved their time here. You were brilliant guests and welcome back anytime! Sharon & Grant
We had an amazing stay at Beach Pavilions for my mother's 70th Birthday. The set up of the house is fantastic - the amazing and huge open plan entertainment area was fabulous for our group of 9 adults, and was even better in person than in the pictures. And then the separate bedroom areas are great for those who want to disappear for a bit of peace and quiet. A perfect combination.
The house was so well equipped with everything we needed, it felt like a home away from home, and in a beautiful peaceful location just a few minutes walk from the beach.
I would highly recommend Beach Pavilions and hope to return again one day.
Mara, we are so thrilled, Beach Pavilions is a perfect house for a large family / 3 generation family. The open plan living is great for entertaining and the bedrooms great for a bit of peace and quiet as you mention. Also great for that early morning beach walk that we love. You were absolutely wonderful guests and welcome back anytime :) Sharon & Grant
We had a great time, good set up, great pool, great lay out.
Great help from the host on getting our elf back to us
AC did not work well in all rooms and we could not turn them off due to issues with the remote controls.
Overall, a great trip and good fun in the house!
Hi Chris, We are so glad your Christmas Elf found his way back to you :) Also we are delighted to hear the layout of Beach Pavilions was great for you all. We are very disappointed to hear about the AC remotes in some bedrooms playing up as they were all serviced not long ago- thank you for letting us know we shall get onto it. We hope you can all return again in the future! Sharon & Grant
Great property; great pool; indoor outdoor feel!
Amazing stay, dream home
Wow, what a beautiful home to stay.
My family searched on the internet for a couple of months, this place looked unreal in photos and just stunning in person. I recently got married in Port Douglas and wanted to find a fun family home with my sisters, brothers-in law, nieces, husband, mum and dad.
Could not recommend this place enough. it was a great family entertainment home, spacious, well-maintained, clean, comfortable beds, private areas, bbq area, outdoor set-up and big pool. We spent hours playing card,s listening to music, enjoying a bbq, seeing friends, water volleyball and relaxing on the lounge reading.
Only a 5-10 minute drive into town, with plenty of places to eat in the surrounding areas. We enjoyed snorkel days on the reef, hartley crocodile adventures, tours to daintree rainforest, strolling around heart of port douglas, micro-lighting, and sunset sails. Was a really wonderful wedding/holiday stay!
The owner even left us fresh milk and bread on arrival! We had one small issue with the tv, however the owner got back to us right away.
Would love to return again someday. Have recommended to all our friends.
Wow! Thank you for your wonderful review - Beach Pavilions is such a great house for different generations holidaying or celebrating together. The house and pool are very resort like and perfect for a memorable holiday experience. We hope your tropical wedding went really well, Port Douglas is such a beautiful wedding location. Thank you again for taking the time to leave a review :) Sharon & Grant
