Secluded beachside retreat. Just metres from both Miami and North Burleigh beaches. Bush track leads over top of headland directly to beach. Private deck surrounded by bushland is perfect for relaxing after a day at the beach.

The space

The house is architecturally designed with a large open plan living, dining and kitchen area opening to a covered deck.

This is truly a home built into the landscape. Nestled into the rainforest that leads to the beach, on three levels up the hill, catching all the ocean breezes from the outdoor North-East facing covered deck. Just the place to relax and enjoy a BBQ meal, the deck is located through bi-fold doors from the dining room and modern galley kitchen. The open plan, spacious, air-conditioned kitchen/living room is on the top level with new furniture and polished floors throughout.

There are three bedrooms.
Master Bedroom (Level 1) - King Bed with smart television, overhead fan, walk-in-robe and ensuite

Bedroom 2 (Level 2) - Queen Bed with overhead fan and robe.

Bedroom 3 (Level 2) - Two king single beds with overhead fan and robe. These two beds can be made up into a king size bed if requested at time of booking.

Middle room (Level 2) - Is a sitting room with overhead fan.

There is a family bathroom on Level 2. Outside this bathroom there is a beach shower (hot and cold water). The house has a separate laundry with a washer and dryer.

For those who like to eat out, there are a plethora of award winning restaurants in the near vicinity or if you feel like cooking, there are top end appliances to use including a dishwasher to clean up afterwards.

The property is fully enclosed with two car off-street parking. There is also free street parking.

A beautifully presented house with amazing furniture & flooring. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook. We enjoyed having people over using the fantastic BBQ. A highlight of all of the places we stayed in, in our time in Australia.

Lovely house for a family holiday. The neighbours had a raging party on our first night which is the only negative of our whole trip. This wasn't the fault of the hosts though. The house is beautiful and very well equiped.

Fantastic place, a stones throw to Miami beach with a fab cafe (Piccolo) for breakfast and anything you needed within walking distance. (it's just a 10 minute walk over the hill to North Burleigh Surfclub for tea which was really lovely). John was a really great host who responded to any questions quickly and provided some lovely welcome touches. We are a family of 5 and had a hire car and found it a perfect base to explore ( 30 mins drive to theme parks ) Both we and our kids really enjoyed staying here. The air con on the top floor was sensational and we appreciated the ceiling fans in the bedrooms. We would definitely return.

My family and I absolutely loved staying at John's place, the house was great and exactly as expected. We loved the location being so close to the beach and having plenty of space being spread over 3 levels. I would stay here again anytime.

Great location! The property has access to back gate that leads to a beautiful lookout and convenient 5 minute walk to Miami or North Burleigh beach. The property was really clean and we appreciated that it was stocked with heaps of pantry/fridge items for us to use. Thanks for a great stay John, we highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a peaceful stay on the gold coast.
