This property as its name indicates is located on Fifth avenue and whilst it does not look directly onto the beach our unit on the third floor had some views of the coast from the balcony . It is a low rise building situated around a pool/spa and BBQ area which was clean and tidy. There is not a lot of room for the sun loungers though and with only 3 available you have to pick your time. Our unit was clean and tidy and fairly spacious, good value for money. The units appear to be mostly rented long term and we didn't see a lot of people during our stay. The new manager Geoff was a bit abrupt to deal with and I never received my booking receipt even after I had emailed requesting it again. I was also charged for the full accommodation cost when I made the booking, not a holding deposit as is the norm. Secure parking is available and the units are literally across the road from a McDonald's and a 7/11 convenience store. Close by there is a coles supermarket, the local surf club and a lovely Thai takeaway.
The bedrooms in our unit were not air conditioned and the fan in the main bedroom was quite noisy. Main living area was air conditioned. If you want beachfront this is not for you, If you want a clean well located property that is short walk to most of Burleigh's beach areas this is it.
Pro's: Close to beach, surf cub and pub, clean and modern. Lots of stairs if you want exercise and a small gym area
Con's: Manager's attitude, lack of basic supplies in pantry: one sugar sachet, no tea or coffee, cleaning products. No hair dryer. Lots of stairs
