Breath Clean Ocean Air
Our comfortable and relaxing spiritual retreat will show you how you can live like a local close to the surf and the heart of all the action in trendy Broadbeach without the tourist price tag.
Privately nestled at the rear of the property, your spirits will be soothed by the restful Zen decor.
Our spiritual retreat has 2 levels. Upstairs is a galley kitchen, living room, 2 secure lockable bedrooms, (one airconditioned) and modern, clean bathroom with a 2 person sized shower and marble feature wall. The cost upstairs is $40 per person per night, so its really affordable. We don't supply wifi to keep costs to a minimum so you can stay longer, but there are so many wifi hotspots in Broadbeach you can access the internet from almost anywhere in Broadbeach.
Upstairs has a communal lounge room with a TV which is accessible to our (2) downstairs guests. If you like the idea of meeting other spiritual travellers, this is a great way to widen your circle of friends, particularly if you're travelling solo.
If you prefer the privacy of your own space, you have the choice of staying in our cool and funky downstairs zen "Earth Goddess" apartment with large airconditioned bedroom (only needed in summer) - please see our separate listing. Our downstairs apartment accomodates 2 people in airconditioned comfort with no sharing, it rents for $80 per night.
Location: Close to Beach and Central to Everything
Broadbeach is THE best suburb to base yourself in, it's so central to everything and only 5 blocks walk to downtown Broady. The light rail makes it even easier to get around with service at the end of the street. Go online to 'translink's journey planner Gold Coast' for all your journey calculations, its awesome!
The Beach/ Shopping/ Night life
There is only one building and a large park between you and the ocean. You can walk to the surf in one minute. Feel like a walk along the beach before breakfast? Just throw on your swimming costume and walk to the end of the street. No car required!
Broadbeach Oasis shopping centre is a 5 minute walk. You'll want for nothing staying with us. Living on the ocean in paradise with major shopping, eating and night life just blocks away is really fantastic. Its far enough away to be quiet and private
If you're a business traveller, Gold Coast Convention Centre is 4 blocks away and an easy 5 minute walk. You are also only 4 to 5 blocks away from all the major Broadbeach hotels and resorts if you are attending a seminar. Surfers Paradise is 5 minutes north by car.

Jupiters Casino, Dracula's themed restaurant or your choice of Broadbeach nightclubs are also easy walking distance.
You dont need a car staying with us! With easy walking to the surf or supermarket, if you need to venture further, walk to the end of the street to catch a bus or tram to anywhere you need to go on the coast.

The Gold Coast is famous for its theme parks, surf clubs, cafes, and restaurants. If you're driving, the theme parks are about 20 minutes drive away, wineries in the magnificent hinterland are just 45 minutes drive, through breathtaking mountainous scenery.
Why not time your vacation to take advantage of one of our many festivals? The annual Broadbeach Blues festival is held just 4 blocks down the road. You will feel very privilaged living amongst the best free blues music and no parking issues either!
No car? there is a great site that will calculate your journey and tell you which public transport to take. Check out "translink's journey planner Gold Coast" to calculate your journey and for directions to everywhere you need to go.
If you can please hose the sand off your feet after your beach walk there will be less sand inside. There is a hose at the front of the property.
We try to ensure our guests enjoy a quiet, relaxed and restful stay.
Great unit - just as described- casual, clean and comfortable- very welcoming and chilled. Very easy to get to beach, cafes and shops and transport in Broadbeach vicinity. Private ground floor entry at the rear and garden setting with small sunny patio was great for morning coffee after a swim. Robyn has given a lot of attention to detail in order to welcome guests to relax and enjoy a carefree stay. Parking in the street was restrictive after 5 PM- but otherwise a great place to stay.
Great place that close to the beach and main area, yet very quiet. Down stairs is excellent with its own lounge area and bath tub.
We didn't meet Robyn, but she is really nice, and the room is clean and tidy,the cooking facilities are sufficient and we really enjoy the days in her place
THERE IS NO WIFI INTERNET - I thought I should mention this as its the biggest negative about Robyn's place.
Overall, I had a great time staying at Robyn's. Its clean, offers good privacy and security, has everything but the internet and is in a great location.
There are two rooms, and unfortunately I got the small room, with a small double bed which was not long enough and very comfortable for a tall person like me.
The host, Robyn, does not actually live there, but the instructions were clear and I did eventually get to meet her, if only briefly. During my stay, the second room was occupied by other travelers.
The location is ideal as it is close to the city center and multiple local amenities. It is only 5 minute walk to the beach and 10 minutes to Broadbeach central with bars, restaurants and a large shopping centre. There is plenty of public transport options as well, including a tram line and local buses.
The neighbourhood overall is nice, clean and secure, but one of the close neighbours was a couple who were shouting and fighting late at night on multiple occasions during my stay.
If you can look past not having wifi internet, this is a great holiday accommodation for the price.
Though I never saw Robyn in person, this room is clean, convenient, and good value for money
I had a fabulous stay at Robyn's retreat. The place was just as described. It is in close proximity to the beach and all the shops. It's such a wonderful and safe neighborhood to walk around in and enjoy the scenery. The whole check-in process was very smooth and I felt welcome from day one. It was really nice to meet the other travelers from around the world. I felt like I had plenty of privacy when needed but could also be social as well. Overall, a wonderful place that I would highly recommend!

About the Host, Robyn
We are laid back people who understand that we are all on a journey of discovery. At our Broadbeach Spiritual Retreat we want to give every visitor a spiritual experience. Living by the ocean also gives its own unique spiritual experience. But after a great day living the dream, come home to a private, relaxing space with great energy.If you feel like walking along the beach, cross the road and walk through the park and you have, as your back yard one of the longest surf beaches in the world. Walk the beach at night, look up at those stars and feel like you belong to the universe, grounded and protected.
