About this listing
Dari rumah saya ke pantai Palm Beach, kira-kira lima minit saja.... naik kaki. Ada berberapa rumah makan dekat sini juga, termasuk rumah makan Indonesia, namanya "Masakan". Transportasi mudah.... dan anda bisa naik bis ke mana-mana di Gold Coast.
Stay in a modern villa, less than five minutes walk to the beach. You will stay in the downstairs private guest suite, bedroom, and adjoining bathroom with shower and toilet. Modern kitchen is upstairs.
It's 15 minutes drive from Coolangatta Airport (The Gold Coast airport).
I usually like to host women travelers only, however males will be considered on their previous reviews and recommendations on AirBnB website. International guests are very welcome, especially from Indonesia, because I speak some Indonesian language and know your country well.
The bedroom has a very comfortable single bed, (also roll-out bed with foam mattress on wooden slats, for second guest (add $20 per night). There is a fan . No air-conditioning, - in this climate, it's not necessary.
Towels and bed linen supplied.
Complimentary WI FI access.
Flat screen TV: (local TV not available). However, you may borrow from an extensive DVD library.. (This is the home of a film-buff and frequently published writer on cinema.)
You may use the laundry, and clothes lines and access the kitchen (upstairs).
There are two private courtyards with table/chair/ sun umbrella for relaxing/reading and dining, adjoining your downstairs area.
There's also a spa bathroom which you may arrange to use for a small extra fee. (We have to pay for water by the litre in this town.)
A few minutes walk from the Villa there are around seven reasonably priced food places, where you can get Thai food, Indonesian food, Pizza, gourmet fish and chips. Also very close-by, a quality restaurant/coffee shop, a McDonald's, a general-store, chemist, hairdresser, wine/beer stores. A little five minute drive to 2 Japanese restaurants in Palm Beach, Chinese, and other options for food. Many more in Burleigh Heads, 5 minutes to the north by car.
Palm Beach is great for long walks, watching the full moon rise, and swims or reading and lounging in the sun. If you have a surfboard, beach breaks are sometimes good. I'm an ex-surfing champion from the classic era - so I'm always happy to meet other younger surfing women.
Not so far along the beach are two patrolled beaches (Surf Life-saving Clubs), and there's a pleasant walkway to the nearby Tallebudgera Estuary, where there's a lovely calm water swimming beach. From there, take the bridge over to the Burleigh Head National Park. You can walk via two paths through the National Park - around the front of the headland with lovely ocean views or up through the bush, to the little town center of Burleigh Heads. It's nice there - lots of coffee shops and bars and cafes (some right on the beach), boutiques, and other interesting shops.
It's easy to take the Surf Side buses, which traverse the Gold Coast Highway, with bus-stop just a short walk from the Villa. This bus service can take you anywhere you want to go in Gold Coast city.
The Villa is near to the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary where you can see all the Australian native fauna and birds in lovely surroundings.
I'm friendly, well-traveled and have lived at Gold Coast for over 40 years, so I can answer your questions and advise you on things to do.
Breakfast included, but no pets, no smoking inside. Limit of stay, two weeks. Longer stays may be negotiated.
Please observe, just a 'reasonable volume' of music, radio and TV. Thanks.
