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!

Revisiting the area
The property was excellent and served the purpose for us.....just what I had expected from the pictures and description. Lovely outdoor area, but the weather didn’t allow much use of that at all. Great having en-suite S for each room.
So glad you loved 'Sanctuary at Thorntons' Villa and the pool gardens. Each bedroom having an ensuite is a great for sure! Mother nature didnt behave too well, so hopefully you can return again to our usual beautiful sunny weather. Thanks for being such great guests! Sharon & Grant :)
Excellent house, great views, quiet and convenient location. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you.
Murilo, thank you for your glowing review of Sanctuary at Thorntons! We are so glad you and your family loved the Villa and had a fantastic family holiday :) Sharon & Grant
Great location! Great House!
This house was a major part of our PERFECT holiday. The house was in a perfect location (walking distance to the beach) and the views on to the golf course were amazing. I would highly recommend this house - very clean, great design (perfect for two families of 4) and a beautiful pool. We will definitely stay at this house again if we are lucky enough to revisit Port Douglas in the future.
Linda how wonderful! So glad the Villa was PERFECT for your stay in Port Douglas. It is lovely to be able to walk to the beach and the local cafe around the corner is sooo good! We would love for you to all stay again, thanks for being such great guests! Sharon & Grant
Great place with everything we wanted and more
This is our second time staying with Grant and Sharon in their holiday units and it just keeps getting better for us as a family. Last year we stayed at Thorton palms and this time we stayed and Sanctuary at Thorton and both units are as good as the other with everything you need to make your stay everything you want it to be. Lisa our host was there to meet us even though we didnt get to the unit until 8pm and went out of her way to make sure we were happy with everything. The units are clean and well decked out and quiet even with our family the whole place was never noisy or crowded as these units are well insulated. The pool and gardens are fabulous and the area where the units are situated is 5 minutes from everything in Port Douglas and is just glorious. Would highly recommend them
Grant we are THRILLED to have your family back again! So glad to hear that you love our Villas. Sanctuary at Thorntons pool and garden is very tropical and relaxing for sure :) and also great to be a short walk from the Cafe around the corner, which is so handy for our guests.
Lisa is a wonderful host and we shall pass on your feedback. We hope you can return again, Sharon & Grant
We had a superb time staying in this house. It's really a home from home with all the things you need for a wonderful holiday. Thank you!
Wonderful to hear Catherine! We try and have lots of home comforts for our guests so you can relax as soon as you unpack your suitcase. So glad you and your family had a great time, we hope you took home many wonderful holiday memories :) Sharon & Grant
We really enjoyed our stay at Sanctuary at Thornton, the property was presented beautifully and we were well looked after by the house keeping staff, fresh towels and a mid-week clean.
The area has heaps of activities and day trips and the owners provided recommendations prior to our arrival.
Thank you again.
Thanks Will - glad that you enjoyed the Villa and our attentive housekeeping team. We would love for you to visit again :)
