Sanctuary at Thornton

This can be your sanctuary if you would love…
to be surrounded by your own garden of eden. There are so many quiet nooks to relax within this villa, it will be possible to ‘escape’ and find your own area in the garden or courtyards to chill out, or perhaps the upstairs balcony would be perfect for your evening champas while you watch the sun go down.

Sanctuary at Thornton is a beautiful, spacious property with stunning vista's across our tropical landscape.  This 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom Villa offers everything you will need including optional pool heating, free wifi, NETFLIX and secure parking.  Located within the stunning Thornton West gated estate, surrounded by lush tropical gardens, this villa exudes a stylish inviting ambiance.

The ground level is for living and relaxing with floor to ceiling doors leading onto the outdoor dining patio and a separate courtyard.  A sophisticated and fully equipped kitchen is complimented by a spacious lounge and well lit dining area.  This leads directly onto the outdoor patio with dining setting and your private pool.  A grassed area and pool pavilion is positioned past the pool.

Awake to stunning views across the golf course and enjoy breakfast upstairs to the sound of tropical parrots.    Take a short walk to the golden sands of 4 mile beach or a local shuttle into town and enjoy one of many cafe's serving excellent coffee. Go into town for some shopping or lay by the pool catching up on a holiday novel whilst deciding whether to dine in town tonight or maybe at one of the many restaurants or bistros within walking distance.

Should you choose to dine at the Villa, cooking in the beautifully appointed kitchen will be easy or for something more casual, try the BBQ next to the outdoor dining area.

The tropics come alive at night with sounds of frogs and birds from ponds in the adjoining golf course.      An excellent Cafe, St Crispins Cafe is a one minute walk out the front gate and serves breakfast, lunch and coffee and is also the station for Bally Hooley cane train that runs to the Marina. Great for the kids :)

Located within the stunning Thornton West gated estate, surrounded by lush tropical gardens this villa exudes a stylish, inviting ambiance. Access is gained through a secure port-a-co leading into your private court yard surrounded by tropical gardens.

The main house combines two levels. Ground level is for living and relaxing... bi-fold doors open onto the outdoor dining patio and a separate courtyard.
