45
DRY SIDE - To travel north, wait at a bus stop on the side of the Highway furthest away from the beach.

Catching the bus is easy, just follow these steps:
1.DESTINATION - choose your destination from the pages of this book;
2.WHERE TO WAIT FOR THE BUS - check the map on page 10 to see where your destination is located.

For northern destinations, wait on the dry side (refer terminology page 5).
3.WHAT BUS TO CATCH - look for the bus number displayed above the front window of the bus.

What's fantastic house ! Beach and shopping mall just walk five minutes can get it. If come to Gold Coast, don't miss this!!!

Rosalind User Profile

Adam's apartment within the Breakfree Resort was a brilliant place for a family vacation. There was plenty of room, full amenities and lots of advice. The resort complex has wonderful pools and shared BBQ areas that our four kids LOVED and it was a short stroll to the beautiful beach. The apartment is well appointed with plenty for adults and kids. The only downside is that the curtains/blinds are not blackout and this meant the rooms got a lot of street light and early morning light. We would definitely go back and thoroughly recommend the apartment. Adam was a gracious and warm host.

Honestly, this is one of the best apartments I have stayed at. It is super comfortable and clean. It was really nice of the owner to provide extra things such as go-cards, surf boards, play station, cars, tourist information etc, really surprised and impressed by these little things! The pool is great place to hang with your friends and fam which is just right next to the apartment (very beautiful mermaid beach), and me and my friends enjoyed the pool also! Adam and Leanne provided very friendly services! Overall would rate this a 10/10 experience. Thanks Adam!
