Located in Mermaid Beach my unit is a 7 minute walk to the beach and close to public transport on the Gold Coast Highway but without the usual noise one would expect. There are many restaurants in close walking distance and Pacific Fair is 5 minutes away in the bus.
The room I have available has a small balcony, facing east, with single bed accommodation, built in wardrobe, computer desk, a comfortable chair for reading or relaxing and access to wi-fi.
I am letting the second bedroom in my 14 year old unit on the 2nd floor with 36 steps up to comfortable living with an open plan living area with a balcony overlooking the pool and spa and my block of 111 units also has a tennis court and small gym and is in a gated complex.
There is very little holiday accommodation available on-site as most tenants go out to work, so it is a relatively quiet unit and even on the hottest day there is a cool breeze from the ocean due to its east/west aspect. Air-conditioning is available in the living area and ceiling fans in the bedrooms.
My guest would have their own large bathroom with bath and shower – shared with the laundry – and a separate toilet for personal use as I have an en-suite attached to my bedroom. A light breakfast of cereal, toast and trimmings is included in the price and tea and coffee would be available at any time during the day.
I do not own a car but my unit is on a direct bus line to the airport at Coolangatta and also to most areas of the Gold Coast. A Gold Coast Go explore card can be purchased at the airport for $10 which covers 24 hours of travel on the buses and light rail and can be renewed each day of your stay. As I use the bus myself I can easily make sure you can catch the right bus to any areas you wish to visit.
I retired in 2008 and came to the Gold Coast to join my family and now wish to complement my income and also meet and greet new people. I have travelled quite a bit overseas on my own and feel I could host someone from Australia or overseas and assist them in enjoying the many attributes of the Gold Coast.
I love my unit and I am sure you will too!
