Resort location at Burleigh Heads
Welcome to Burleigh Heads!
We (Bob and Dee) have a bedroom available in our two bedroom apartment. The room contains a double bed suitable for either a single person or a couple. You also have your own private bathroom and free wi-fi availability.
We are located in a high rise Resort on level 12 so great views are assured and the height is comfortable. Our building has an outdoor pool, indoor pool, spa and a steam room facility as well as a tennis court. There is ample street parking right outside of the resort.
Great public transport via Surfside Busses to either Surfers up north or to Tweed Heads down south. If you use the public transport system then you may wish to buy a Go Card as that offers the cheapest travel costs, and can be used on the bus, train and in Brisbane the water ferrys. The cards can be purchased from most 7/11 convenience stores as well as other outlets. The closest 7/11 store to us is on the corner of 5th Avenue and the Gold Coast Highway.
The Gold Coast airport is approximately 15 minutes south, and apart from taxis, Surfside Busses (bus 777) and a Shuttle bus operate from the airport.
If you want the cheapest transport from the airport then we recommend that you catch the local Surfside bus number 702 that runs from the airport right up past our Resort at Burleigh Heads to Broadbeach - we are the second stop after the main Burleigh Heads stop, and the stop is called 'Second Avenue' and our Resort is directly across the road.
The Gold Coast Airport transport and Information desk is right outside the International Arrivals and you can see their friendly staff for either the Surfside Buslines or Gold Coast Tourist Shuttle tickets.
The Surfside bus number 777 leaves from directly in front of the Domestic arrivals/baggage collection area at the terminal and the bus runs to Main Beach via Burleigh Heads and Broadbeach every twenty minutes between the first and last flights of the day, (please ensure you get off the bus at SECOND AVENUE BURLEIGH HEADS).
Should you decide to catch the Shuttle service the cost will be around $18 each however you may find that you would rather get here quicker and arrive right at the front door of the Resort by taxi at a cost of approx. $35 for the two of you.
If you are travelling by train from Brisbane you would catch the Gold Coast train and exit at the end of the line at Varsity Lakes and then catch the number 765 bus service to The Pines GETTING OFF at the Second Avenue BURLEIGH HEADS bus stop which is less than 100 metres from the resort. Please ensure you get off at Second Avenue BURLEIGH HEADS and NOT Second Avenue PALM BEACH
For all public transport information please ring Translink on 131230.
When it comes to attractions, the Gold Coast is full of them and they range from Theme Parks to the Outback Spectacular horse show, fishing cruises to even Whale watching (in season) PLUS so much more.
When it comes to food we are traditional AirBnB hosts, where we provide bed and breakfast only, we do not provide facilities for our guests to cook their own meals, however you are welcome to purchase take aways and eat and bring them back to the apartment to eat. There is a Take Away place across the road from the apartment and we also have two surf clubs and a number of eating places within walking distance. For those of you who prefer some vegetarian food there is a great shop in James St Burleigh Heads called Govindas Pure Vegetarian and a number of our guests have commented on how good it is. Then, if you want to really go up market, we even have a revolving restaurant in Broadbeach that not only provides great food but also great views of the coast and hinterland.
We guarantee that apart from working on your tan you will love chilling out here as you kick back and relax!
To give you another perspective of our location, please do a search on 2nd Avenue Beachside Apartments for a link to the official internet site for our Resort. (Please be aware that this is just to give you an idea of the surrounds only and is not meant to indicate the facilities that we can offer within our unit).
Likewise, you may want to check out the social internet site that requires all members to have a timeline and check out the listing page of 'Australia' as there is a set of 16 photos of the Gold Coast under the heading of '72 hours on the Gold Coast' that will give you another aspect of this great area of Queensland.
Now for some back office information. Should we pre-approve your booking you can accept this instantly for 24 hours by clicking the Book It button in the message thread of our reply to you.

I specially enjoyed the great breakfast and the sauna inside their building.
Burleigh Heads is a perfect location, with nice restaurant, a great beach, not too far from Surfers Paradise, but not too closed from all that crowded area.
Thank you both again for your kindness. I would recommend this place to friends and family.
My trip to Gold Coast got even better because I met Bob and Dee. No amount of words can do any justice to the experience. Beautiful people, beautiful house and beautiful Location - exactly as the pictures posted! Thanks for having me guys x
Dee and Bob are the best landlord I ever met. I have a wonderful holiday in their apartment. Both of them are very funny. They told me lots of interesting things for me. I will still choose there if I go to Gold Coast again.
Dee and Bob are both lovely and welcoming people and hosts. I had a wonderful stay at their beautiful apartment in Burleigh Heads. The apartment is very modern, clean and beautifully decorated- the view is absolutely stunning! The bed and room are very comfortable and provided with everything needed. Burleigh beach right in front of the apartment, as well as the pools and spa are great to relax! Everything was just perfect and I could not have asked for more. I absolutely enjoyed the three days with Dee and Bob and definitely recommend!
I absolutely loved my night away with Bob and Dee.
Their apartment is stunning, clean, comfy bed, with the most incredible view Right in The heart of burleigh heads. Being part of a complex meant I could use the pools which was a perfect way to relax!
They made me feel so at home and welcomed, I couldn't have asked for more.
Breakfast was also great.
Thank you for your amazing hospitality. I cant recommend this place enough! Thank you dee and bob, I look forward to seeing you again soon!
Our stay at Bob and Dee's apartment was absolutely sublime! While the weather wasn't so kind to us, Bob and Dee were the consummate hosts. They were warm and welcoming without being intrusive and their attention to detail is second to none (the umbrella was very much appreciated!)
The apartment is in a superb location, just across the road from the beach, minutes from the main strip of shops and a short commute to Surfers Paradise. The room itself was immaculate with ample amenities including beach towels, tea/coffee and even local guides and takeout menus!
They were also very accommodating in terms of our arrival and departure, allowing us store our bags and retain access to the apartment when we had a late flight out.
Bob and Dee - thanks again for your hospitality! What an incredible experience for our first stay using Airbnb!
I am married to a most wonderful husband, Bob. We are originally from the UK, spent many happy years in New Zealand and have since come to settle in this wonderful country. We have visited South Africa many times where we have a beautiful daughter, son-in-law and two adorable grandchildren.
We are so fortunate to be 'living the dream' at Burleigh Heads and would love for others to be able to share in our little bit of paradise!
