When location is key, our home is a great "family getaway". Located on a wide waterway canal, 600m from the patrolled Mermaid beach and walking distance to many great restaurants and Pacific Fair Shopping. Public transport and access to the G-Link tram a short walk away. The modern home features a private jetty, sandy beach, sparkling pool, grassed areas for the kids to play and a pool table for family fun. The whole family can chill out.
Our home is on one level - perfect for a family with small children or elderly guests. (Please note that there are four steps from the patio down to the pool, jetty, and lawn area alongside the canal waterway.) Featuring a fully fenced yard the outdoor space is perfect for children's play.
We cater to all - families, singles, business travellers.
The home consists of 4 good sized bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, each with both a bath & separate shower. There is a separate toilet beside the Family Bathroom. Family Getaway accommodates 8 guests in existing bedding, but we can also accommodate 2 additional guests utilising rollaway beds (at an extra cost). The rollaway beds could be placed in Bedroom 1 or in one of the two living areas as there is plenty of room. Bedroom configurations can all be changed from 1 x King to 2 x singles if required, and advised at time of booking.
A huge main Living Room features cathedral ceilings and is furnished with comfortable leather sofas and a large comfy armchair. Large 66 inch television connected to Foxtel, Netflix and a DVD.

We believe the greatest feature of our home is the enormous covered patio overlooking the canal waterway, pool, jetty and grassed area. This area is equipped with a large dining table, sofas and two ceiling fans for your comfort. We spent the vast majority of our time outside enjoying this area and it is our "go-to" entertainment area. We have equipped this area with quality, pull down, outdoor, sun protection blinds. The area also features a 7 burner gas BBQ, (2 gas bottles supplied). It's a great space with lots of room for all the family to enjoy.

Mermaid Waters is a residential area located close to our beaches (600 m to the patrolled Mermaid Beach and Surf Life Saving Club), Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, the restaurants along Gold Coast Highway, the G Light Rail. Served well by public transport it is no problem to access all the Gold Coast attractions with our bus stop 200m away, linking directly with the light rail service. What I like about it is the close proximity to everything, 5 minutes to Pacific Fair Shopping Centre, 5 minutes to Broadbeach, 10 minutes to Burleigh Heads or Surfers Paradise. 25 minutes to Gold Coast Airport. We are just SO CENTRAL to anything on the Gold Coast. Easy access with the M1 only a 15 minutes from the home.
GETTING AROUND: Only 200m to Bus Stop for transport to all areas of the Gold Coast including Gold Coast Airport – Walkway through easement (across the road), to Glenelg Ave and Gold Coast Highway. Catch Airport Bus # 777 to and from Gold Coast Airport. Approx. 45 minutes. By car the airport is 30 minutes drive away. 15 minutes drive to Robina Railway Station for train to Brisbane and Brisbane Airport (1hr 45 minutes by train or 1 hr 15 minutes by car) Uber is also a great way to get around. You must register and enter credit card details on their site and then you can just book from your mobile device. Many of our Guests choose this option. You can use the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps or TransLink journey Planner site to search for any destination on the Gold Coast with timetables and fares for buses, trams and trains. Please do not hesitate to ask for assistance with any information in this regard. Our G LINK tram runs from Broadbeach South (outside Pacific Fair Shopping Centre) to the Gold Coast University Hospital. This line runs through the main tourist area of Surfers Paradise. Buses connect with the Tram at Broadbeach South.
