“Burleigh could now be my favourite beach destination in SEQ”
Reviewed 2 February 2012

I must say that these apartments certainly add to my wonderful impression of Burleigh Heads as a destination. Travelling from Northside Brisbane, our first time staying on the Gold Coast as a family after having previously stayed at places on the Sunshine Coast has left us with a desire to return to Burleigh in the future and more than likely to stay here again.

The apartments are located wonderfully close to the beach with many food and drink options within walking distance (thankfully due to my restriction from driving due to injury). The local supermarket only a short 5-10 minute drive away. The patrolled beach is a bit of a stroll, however we found the surf out the front of the apartments to be fairly safe with minimal rips and sweeps in 1m swell.

Although the kids preferred both of the pools. Very comforting to have a heated indoor pool available.

The apartments were nice and clean. In-room movie options and PS3 games were great for bad weather. Tennis court was great to have for no additional cost (except for ball & racquet hire, which we mostly avoided with our own gear). In-room free broadband internet was awesome and worked well with our laptop and mobiles.

The views were fantastic from the 5th floor, but beware of the wide gaps between bars on the balcony balustrade with toddlers. We couldn't let the little one loose out there.

Little bit of street noise from the highway below.

Fans & aircon was great. Wonderful view from the spa out to the hills. When needed we were able to cook our own food in the modest kitchen.

Great destination for young families and most certainly will return (if we get a good price).

Just Awesome!!. Only had a few days back in Australia but so glad we got into 2nd Avenue Apartments for a three night stay. My wife could work from the Gold Coast office so it left the whole day for myself and my soon to be ten year old daughter. We had a 2 bedroom family unit on the 4th Floor with a great view of the pool and beach, a couple of balconies and good size rooms all with fans. A really nice outdoor setting had us having breakfast listening to the beach every morning. The unit has a good size fridge and the supermarket at Miami is only a 5 min drive. Has a Liqourland and a few other shops.

Both the indoor and outdoor pools at 2nd Avenue Apartments a nice temps and the spa appeals to dads that have lined up for an hour for a 40 sec ride at Dreamworld.

The Apartments have at least three barbecues that we saw, the complex takes most of the area between 2nd and 3rd avenues off the Gold Coast Highway and the neighbors they do have are very quite. Across the Esplande is the beach and miles and miles of beautiful golden sand.
We ate out most nights and grabbed a fish and chips from the shop across the road after the day at Dreamworld.

The best thing though was at night to be able to put my daughter into bed, in her own room , nice and tired from a huge day out and be able to relax for an hour with HD television and blu-ray which we never used because we were in bed early ourselves. The master bedroom was a good size, and has a good size ensuite with spa bath. A little noise from the highway has it's pro's and con's.

Overall a great location, great facilities, clean, good guests and great service. Great staff on entry and exit and the underground parking keeps the car cool and safe. Thanks on behalf of myself and my family .. Steve

Location was great directly opposite the Beach and a couple of minutes walk to Burleigh shops and restaurants. Enjoyed the facilities at 2nd Avenue especially the indoor and outdoor pools.
The apartment was modern and well appointed and obviously recently renovated, the inclusion of PS3 with a free game and DVD library was also a pleasant surprise. Friendly staff
Burleigh is a Gem on the the Gold Coast,

Thanks for a great stay well will be back!!

Room Tip: all rooms appear to have ocean views

This has now been the second time we have stayed at these apartments and they are fabulous. Both times we have stayed in the Executive Two Bedroom apartments during off season and they have been very reasonably priced. The units are very clean upon arrival and feel almost brand new. The indoor heated pool is a huge bonus for cloudy days along with the complimentary DVD hire and Playstation games from reception.

The building managers were very helpful and friendly and I can't wait to go back - best apartments on the coast!!!!!

It was also a nice touch to have the building manager come out to visit both me and my children when we were looking at the gold fish pond. He was very kind to allow my children to help him feed the fish, not a big deal but something that my children talked about all day.

Thanks for such a great holiday.

2nd Avenue Apartments are in a great location...a 30 second walk from the beach, 3 minutes walk from the Burleigh heads shopping centre. It is a family friendly apartment block which has undergone updates over the last 5 yrs since we started our yearly vacation there. Rooms have been modernized, always clean and well appointed with stunning views over the beach and hinterland. The indoor pool offers year round swimming opportunities and then there is the outdoor pool for when the weather warms up in the summer months. This place has always been a hit for our family!!!
