We have a large home in an established residential area within 150 metres of patrolled surfing beaches. Set on a hill, the house catches the summer sea breeze and provides views to the hills. Enjoy afternoon drinks on the large shaded deck or escape to the separate living area downstairs. Large double garage, bikes, surf boards, golf clubs, kids activities, internet, cable TV, modern interior. Perfect home for a family getaway or for a quiet couples getaway.
A large two storey house perfect for a family vacation or two families. We a have a self contained guest area downstairs. Alternatively, the children can play downstairs while the adults enjoy their own time upstairs.
With a small shopping centre and restaurants within 400 metres you will rarely need to drive. The bus also stops at the bottom of the hill.
An early morning stroll along the beach or walk to the cliff top to find the best beach location for the day. World famous Burleigh Heads beach to the South and Miami beach to the North offer the best family friendly beaches Australia has to offer. A short stroll to the shops, supermarket and local pub nearby. Buses within 100m will take you anywhere including the many local theme parks, Movie World, Dreamworld, Sea World. We have all the "worlds" here for you to enjoy. If shopping is your thing, choice is unlimited. An abundance of movie theatres, restaurants and small cafes are also on offer.
Alternatively, a more natural pursuit might be your thing. Bushwalking, we have plenty of that, surfing (did we mention the amazing beaches), sailing, fishing, diving or golf. With courses ranging from world class championship courses to local public courses, you can't go wrong.
Anything you want to do in the sun, you can do it all within a few minutes of our front door.
Local surf clubs provide a relaxed location for breakfast, lunch or dinner. After a meal, take a beachside stroll or try your luck (if that's what you prefer) at the local casino, less than 10 mins north.
1 hr's drive gets you to the state capitol of Brisbane, with all that state capitols have to offer, as well as being a great day trip. To the south is an abundance of typical Australian country towns, perfect for a short day trip or a quiet overnight stay. Wineries too.
Not to be outdone by the vibrance of the surf beaches, only 25 min west you will find the magnificant national parks for day hikes, nature walks and scenic day trips providing the contrast that makes the Gold Coast what it is, a destination for everyone. You'll love it.
We are both working. Frances is a teacher, Geoffrey is a property services manager. We can only exchange over Christmas, between mid December to end of January, our Summer break. We have 3 children (18,16,12). We have no pets, 3 kids are enough to clean up after. We don't smoke.
We have done several exchanges to North America in the past and are keen to find a spot on or near the ski hills of Montana or Colorado, or anywhere else for that matter.
