Absolutely brilliant accomodation. 3 bedroom with 3 bathrooms is the best. So close to Main Street, walk anywhere, why would stay anywhere else. From Perth and Bali has been my destination. This now gives me another option as Port Douglas has a Bali feel about it.

Our villa was fantastic and immaculate! Jez and Karen were the best hosts and bent over backwards to assist us in our needs. A true credit to them both. With a large family the villa was spacious and provided all the necessities for cooking, sleeping and holiday living. So close to the Main Street of Port Douglas it still offered a quiet and privite sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle. We are looking forward to returning and definitely using Sanctuary Stays in the near future!

Fantastic stay!

I stayed at 328 Beaches for 5 nights with my family and it was wonderful. The unit was large enough for the four of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, it was tastefully renovated and had everything we needed. The balcony overlooking the pool was well used and the kids loved the large pool. Both the resort and the unit are very family friendly.

The location is fantastic - walk to town, on the beach, near all the restaurants and facilities. Port Douglas is well located for visiting Palm Cove, Cape Tribulation, the Daintree, Mossman Gorge and Kuranda. We hired a car so the parking spot at 328 Beaches came in handy.

We loved 328 Beaches and would definitely stay again.

“This house has everything you need for your stay in Port Douglas and is central for all the sightseeing tour for the surrounding areas.
We called ahead from the airport and were met when we arrived and given a guided tour of the property and given a very comprehensive information pack which proved valuable. We have been to Port Douglas before and loved it for its quietness and laid back style.
Its a good base to see the Great Barrier Reef, (lots of boats travel to the reef daily) the rainforests and many other tours from and many spectacular beaches which are never overcrowded. Book your Reef trip when you arrive and keep an eye on the wind speed as this will make your trip our very uncomfortable and when you get into the sea. Would recommend Port Douglas and staying at Chez Willow to everybody.”

Dear Sanctuary Stays my girl friends and I stayed in 8 Sands for 5 nights to celebrate a 50th Birthday. Your top quality service enabled us to both book online while also chat to you personally about the booking before we arrived. The house was absolutely perfect. Especially for 4 women all wanting to enjoy being together while have our own personal space, it was perfect to have our own rooms. Coming from Melbourne in early September the house combined with the weather made our stay nothing short of heaven. Jeremy’s warm welcome when we arrived was unbelievably helpful. He helped us book bikes, explained the way to ride to town on the beach, what restaurants he thought we would like and also advised what reef trips were available. We booked a sailing trip with Sail Away through him and when he realised the weather would be rough on the day he rang us and advised we buy some sea sick tablets. Our trip was a first class, once in a life time, bucket list experience because of this.
The pool and the layout of the house at 8 Sands is exactly what we wanted. The house has been beautifully furnished and the position of the pool makes you feel like your in an oasis you never want to leave.

Thank you for all your help we have all agreed that we will all visit 8 Sands again in the next year.

We enjoyed our stay at Apt 328 (Beaches resort) so much first time round that we came back for a second time and our stay was highlighted this time by the fact that it has been fully renovated (just in the past few months) – they have done a wonderful job. Nothing has been overlooked and everything in the apartment is clean and tidy. The location can not be beaten – it is directly opposite the beach (you can also access the pool within Beaches itself from the beachside via a gate), there is a nice little kiosk on the corner and the Surf Club is across the road. The Macrossan Street shopping strip (which has excellent shops, restaurants and cafes) is literally a 5 minute walk.

We had an amazing time, loved the place and found all the décor to be of a very high standard (we have been staying in Airbnb’s for the last 3 months so hopefully we have a decent standard of comparison). The best bit has to be the open plan living dining area that opens out onto a private garden area with the barbecue and dining table. It was such a pleasure to wake up every morning to the birdsong and sit out in the lovely shaded table for breakfast. The kitchen was well equipped and so we had no problem at all using it for meals in. The bedrooms are also really lovely and we found the place plenty big enough for the 5 adults that were staying. We used the pool a few times to cool off, whilst you wouldn’t expect a large hotel style pool in an apartment complex like this it’s a lovely little pool and was kept very clean. The location is in easy walking distance of town and the Marina with a bottleshop and a great Japanese takeaway both right next door. The beach is also really close and provides a really nice scenic walk into the town. Best of all Jeremy and Karen were so good to deal with, we had a minor issue with an aircon remote and they sent a repair man within the hour! They are lovely.

Everything is so close that you don’t need a car unless travelling further out of Port Douglas for sightseeing. We can’t recommend this apartment highly enough and can’t wait to go back!

“What a magnificent villa with a great outdoor dining gazebo next to the private plunge pool which was very refreshing . Superb appointments with each spacious bedroom having it's own en-suite bathroom, 3 televisions, lots of kitchen utensils and little extras like tea/coffee, condiments, etc. A great location 50 metres from Macrossan St and few minutes walk to the patrolled beach and the villa was very private and quiet as there are only 4 villas in the complex. It exceeded our expectations and I could not recommend it highly enough. On arrival we were met and shown throughout the villa and most useful were the Restaurants and activities that were recommended to us.”

“This house is gorgeous. We had such a lovely stay here and are already wishing to return. The house has everything a family or group of friends needs for a relaxing vacation: beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms, and a wonderful, quiet neighborhood. The pool is heated so you can swim irrespective of the weather. The welcome cold champagne and beer is excellent, and a very thoughtful touch.”

“The location is perfect, just across the park from the beach. The set up is great - with the barbecue and outdoor setting at the front and the trees from the park overhead. You can hear the sea from the front bedroom, very relaxing.”

“We had a wonderful time! The studio was as described on the pictures, the resort is wonderful with a great pool. There’s a very cheap shuttle bus that goes to Port Douglas and runs until 2am. The communication was effective from Karen and we had a great welcoming from Karen’s husband who advised us on places to go and things to do around. Will definitely recommend!

“Spacious and very clean top-floor unit located in a quiet part of the hotel. It features a balcony with a delightful outlook on a tropical garden and salt water pool. Great for meals and sunset drinks. The resort is a short walk from shops and restaurants. Communication with the owners was swift and professional. Highly recommend Balinese breeze for a relaxing getaway!”

“An awesome little luxury studio inside one of Port Douglas' most luxurious, high end resorts. With access to all of the resort's amenities including by far the nicest hotel pool in town and a great bar as well as a 2 min walk from the famously beautiful 4 Mile Beach! Definitely worth a stay at such great value even in the peak season!”

“Fantastic house and hosts. Perfect w young family. It's a little out of town- we had a rental car and was perfect to head into town and beach in mornings... then retreat to house and pool for the afternoon. Great kitchen. Great sized rooms and the way the house wraps around the pool with the outdoor area just works. Very happy.”

“Port Douglas is a tricky place to find reasonably priced accommodation so I was really glad to find Karen’s place. The communication with Karen was friendly and clear. The apartment was spotless when we arrived with 2 sets of towels for inside and a set of pool towels. The kitchen had most things you need to prepare and cook your own food including use of 4 weber BBQ’s in the resort. The apartment itself is a quite large room with all you need. The pool area is excellent for reading and swimming. I’d stay again.”

Everything you could want is in the unit with the bonus of extra towels for the shower and pool. Check in was easy and the complex staff very friendly and accommodating.
