About this listing
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!

Bob and Dee 他們人真的很好，我們在check in 當天發生了一點小意外，Bob 二話不說就幫忙我們處理，還說隔天如果有需要，可以和我們一起去租車公司！

It was such a lovely experience staying with Dee & Bob. They are one of the most beautiful couple I have met. Their place is airy, pleasant with tasteful colour coordination and fantastic view! What made it hard to leave though was how welcoming and sincere they were to us, their sweet gestures of checking on how we were doing,getting us a card and inviting us to watch a rugby match live telecast. We will definitely stay with them if we go by Gold Coast again!
Our hosts, Bob and Dee, are the warmest people we have ever met. They welcomed us with open arms and made us totally at home. Their apartment feels like a resort with the totally amazing view of the beach, sea and sun, along with tastefully decorated rooms. It is totally accessible via buses. The breakfast provided by them was also hearty. They shared with us jokes, nuggets of information about Gold Coast and New Zealand and their life stories. We did not bear to leave and had to, after a bear hug from Bob who took us to the airport in his car. We love them and their apartment and I am sure you will too!
Its was a awesome stay with Dee and Bob. very lovely host, the apartment was better then what i have expected! awesome spot for sunrise and sunset. convenient place to cafes around, and good travelling spot from the apartment for public transport. the pictures really cant do justice to it! i will be back if i am going to visit goldcoast again!
Awesome couple! I didn't think I had any rent experience with someone as warm as Bob has been. He even went the extra mile to get me details for a dressmaker when he heard I was looking for a wedding dress. Dee is prompt in all her replies and always ready with a smile.
The room was amazing. Photos just didn't do justice. Very very intricate and detailed home!!! All these plus the best views. Will definitely stay again :)
