We stayed for 5 nights in a 3 bed apartment, which was large, spotlessly clean, modern, and very well equipped. The quality was 5* and the location was perfect, a gated and secluded complex only meters from the esplanade and ocean. The service was very friendly and the environment friendly and quiet. The apartment wasn’t overlooked at all and felt like living in the forest with lots of wildlife. We would definitely return.
Absolutely fantastic again, been going for 8 years, missed the last two. Was concerned with the change of management - rest assured - all good. Gerhard is what you need. The place is amazing, spotlessly clean and well looked after. We are in two minds as to recommend Sanctuary as we want to keep this "our own private Sanctuary". Thanks Mark and Bronwyn
If you want a quiet and relaxing stay in Palm Cove look no further. The spacious apartment has everything you need, including fully equipped kitchen, beach towels and kids pool toys. The decor is lovely, beds comfortable and the surrounds are gorgeous with beautiful lily ponds. We especially loved the pool area which is large with nice shaded area and bbq facilities. I cannot recommend more highly
Great stay with family, huge apartmentments with quality furnishings,convenient location to restaurants and central to cairns and port Douglas . Gerhard and family had great advice and recommendations for activities to do in area . Fully recommend stay .
The wife and I spent a week and a half here and it was fantastic. De-stressed and de-compressed thoroughly. Nothing was too much trouble and we fully enjoyed our stay. We had the apartment on the other side of the pool adjoining the lagoon. Thank you so much for making our trip such a pleasure. Just like most of Palm Cove the vibe was laid back and chill.
Sanctuary Stayed here with family of four in the three bedroom apartment. Accomodation is fantastic, well stocked with all the appliances you need and extremely spacious. Staff at this family run business are super friendly and very accomodating. The pool area is great, clean and very large! Overall, a great stay and highly recommend.
Very tranquil setting with beautifully kept grounds, spacious apartment. We stayed in a 3 bedroom apartment and I have to say the apartment was incredibly spacious, extremely well fitted out with lots of kitchen utensils etc. The appartment had the luxury of both many ceiling fans and a/c in each room if you needed it. Also having laundry facilities was great! Staff were incredibly helpful with communication before we arrived to anything we required when we were there! Pool is lovely and big with shaded area and all being a short walk into Palm Cove! Highly recommend!
This resort is set off the beach which detours some. Do not be mistaken this place has outstanding views of its own personal lagoon, stunning surrounding trees and wild life. The apartments feel like home and connect you directly to the outdoors. Super comfortable. Will not stay anywhere else.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom property. The bedrooms were double beds in each and therefore large. The entire property was clean, tidy and and fully airconditioned. The kitchen was superb. Highly recommended for a large family or up to three couples. The resort is just 3 mins walk to the nearest pubs and restaurants and is just set back a little from the main street which made it convenient and quiet, thereby making relaxing at the resorts pool idyllic and peaceful. The Labuschagne family running the resort were helpful with tips of what to do and where to eat. They even had a car that you can hire from the resort if desired.
There is no other place to stay in Palm Cove! We have stayed at Sanctuary before, and didn’t hesitate to stay again on this trip. The rooms are spacious and well kept. Beds are comfy and bedrooms have loads of room. As this property is behind closed gates, it’s a very safe environment. The pool area is just the best, complete with bbq and area to enjoy your bbq meal. Gerhard and family are awesome to deal with. Always helpful and always happy to chat also. Full of local knowledge (thanks for the tip to view the platypus from further down the track, under the bridge), and loads of suggestions on what to do and see in and around the area, and even further beyond Cairns. To fully enjoy this property and it’s surrounds, a week just isn’t long enough…but then again, neither is 2 weeks.. if we could stay for a whole month, we would.…
