    Fabulous and spacious accommodation”

    Palm Cove is a great spot with a very relaxed vibe. Location is excellent (in middle of Cairns and Port Douglas) and definitely my pick as it is less busy. Sanctuary Palm Cove is amazing. Excellent accommodation complete with a great pool when it is stinger season in Far North Queensland. Apartments have everything you need and very comfortable. Highly recommended.

    Brian from Western Australia.”

    This property well exceeded our expectations. The facilities, furnishing and spaciousness are outstanding. The grounds are a delight and the staff were fantasticl from Reception to Housekeeping. We could happily have taken up residence permanently! The location was excellent, just a short stroll to the beach and round the corner to the Irish Pub and Coffee Haven for wonderful coffee and 6 star views. We would have no hesitation in choosing Sanctuary Palm Cove again.

    Fantastic property perfectly located at the northern end of Palm Cove. ”

    Huge apartment with large indoor and outdoor areas surrounded by magnificent gardens providing privacy . Felt like we were in a tropical rainforest. The pool is larger than it appears in the photos and crystal clear. Heaps of room for the kids to play and allow other guests to enjoy a swim. Overall a perfect place to relax and enjoy Palm Cove and the surrounding areas.

    Luxury Appartment in beautiful surroundings”

    These apartments certainly have the wow factor. When checking in I was handed not just keys but also a remote control for the entrance gate which electronically opened as you drove into the complex. Then another tap of the remote control allowed you access to your secure parking spot beneath our apartment block. Once in the room we were blown away with the accomodation which had been left with the fold back patio doors wide open for that full open plan experience merging the balcony and beautiful gardens into the living/dining room. We even saw Kangaroos in the garden directly below our balcony one morning which was amazing to see!. Palm Cove beach and a good choice of restaurants is literally a 2 minute walk away. If we ever returned to the area we'd definitely stay here again.

    Stunning, perfect location”

    Amazing place to stay at, minute walk from the beach and restaurants, beautiful surrounding gardens, with a pond - water feature. Large pool with a deep end, very nice for morning or evening swims. We stayed at 2 bedroom apartment and it was very spacious, with a large living area, 2 bathrooms and 3 balconies, more then enough for 3 people. We couldn’t fault it. I can recommend Sanctuary to anyone who likes comfortable, spacious quiet places where you can unwind and relax after full day of activities
