we had a lovely holiday in Port Douglas in Feb 2017. the 8*Sand was definitely the best bit of our trip. the house itself is much bigger and much more than the picture showed on website.
the location is amazing, close to beach, and a very nice pizza shop just 2 mins walk away. the coffee shop and supermarket are just around the concer.
I have recommend 8*sand to all of my friend who plan to go Port Douglas.
we will definitely visit again
set in a secure gated street with a stunning indoor outdoor flow overlooking the pool and bbq.we loved our stay with only a short walk to the beach and coffee shop .
would def stay again!
never meet the owner/property manager during our stay but this was no prob.
only downside was the noisy neighbours ,loud adults late at night and then the kids start early in the morning!
This is the most luxurious house we have stayed in from all our travels. From waking up in the morning to the sounds of exotic birds to relaxing dinners in the outdoor area this house was perfect. The house stayed cool in the hot temperature and the pool was larger than it looks and was amazing with multiple waterfalls and beautiful lights at night. Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (ages 11, 14 and 17) had plenty of room and the kids enjoyed the large flat screen TV and the Playstation 4. We enjoyed walking to the beach, the Beach shack restaurant and a small place with local food for take out with amazing seafood. This house has an ideal location and only a 5 minute drive to the marina and downtown. Jeremy took the time when we first arrived to welcome us and tell us all the best places in town and how to catch a sunset sail at the yacht club on Wed afternoons.
We can't wait to go back to Port Douglas and 8@Sands.
We rented this accommodation as 2 families each family comprised of 2 adults and one boy aged 12. We found the house spacious and very comfortable. Appliances were reasonable quality we really apppreciated the new family weber q, the automatic coffee machine, the large flat screen smart TVs and the playstation 4 located in the childrens lounge. The beds were soft and comfortable. The pool was large and kept the children and adults entertained and cool for many hours. The managers of the property were easily contacted, responsive to requests and friendly. We needed to raise an issue with an airconditioner that was not working in the queen bedroom. The property was located within a 5 minute walk to beach, a resturant, bottle shop and snack bars, a well appointed day spa was also within walking distance.
What a house - pure luxury from the beds to the furniture to the coffee machine in the kitchen everything has been thought of. This is a fabulous home and our party of 8 people (4 adults and 4 kids) were easily accommodated and did not feel like we living were on top of one another.The outside area is beautiful and we made great use of the outside dining and swimming pool area.
The estate itself is very well kept and is only a short stroll to 4 Mile Beach and the beach Shack - local restaurant and pizza joint.
