“Our Second Home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

We have been coming t o Burleigh for several years. For the past few we have stayed at Southern Cross. Each time we extend our stay. Everything is so close and easy. The apartment is fabulous. It is very tastefully decorated and always clean and well maintained.The management(Madonna and Shane) are such easy going and friendly people to deal with and respond so promptly always. We come here as a family and do everything together. At the end of fantastic day we sit on the balcony watch the surf and everything go by as we enjoy happy hour and talk. It is the place where we come to truly relax. I can only wish that Perhaps one day I might eventually buy an apartment.

We have stayed in many apartments from the Daintree to Coolangatta over the years on our annual sojourns to Australia (to escape the NZ winters) so are well aware of prices and 'just what's out there'. If we are near Burleigh Heads we always stay at The Southern Cross Apartments - great value for money - great location and fabulous views of the ocean and dolphins playing, from the beach view apartments - the managers are friendly and helpful which all contributes to an enjoyable holiday - we have stayed at the Southern Cross several times now after the apartments were recommended to us by Australian friends and we have now recommended them to NZ friends who are also staying there in the near future. We'll be back!

This is my fourth attempt to get through with a report on the Southern Cross but I just want to echo the words of "Patrick B" and "Brian W". We have stayed at the Southern Cross about ten times and are booked in to stay for 6 weeks next February. That should be recommendation enough, but we would add, to what the other two people mentioned have said, that the facilities are excellent. There is a fine, warm swimming pool, a "work-out" room with apparatus, a sauna and a jacuzzi. We can't wait to get back and meet Shane and Madonna again. Roll on February 12th!

Room Tip: East side rooms have good views (over the trees) to the beach and Surfers' Paradise, west side...

Our family has been visiting the Gold Coast for the last 11 years. We have stayed at average to luxurious apartments but have returned to The Southern Cross Apartments three times now. Why?

- The couple who manage the apartment are great, friendly, efficient and accommodating.
- The location is superb, a stroll across a quiet esplanade and you are on the beach. All the apartments face the beach, and offer views of Surfers to Coolangatta. 5 mins walk gets you to the charming and varied shopping strip which has all the essentials, and 5 mins drive gets you to Pacific Fair Shopping Complex. There are 2 SLSCs about 10 mins walk away.
- The apartments are recently renovated, spacious, clean, fully equipped with good quality cooking tools, beds are comfy and have plenty of spare bedding.
- The additional odds and ends supplied that you usually miss when you are on holidays make it feel like you are staying with friends. There are even some paperbacks, boogy boards and tennis rackets in case you get bored!! Naturally this means there are tennis courts and a pool.

If you are ever thinking of a Gold Coast holiday, I can really recommend this accommodation!!

Room Tip: Ask for an apartment high up for the view and no traffic noise (which is minimal anyway).
