Located in a quiet suburban street in the exclusive suburb of Mermaid Beach and a short stroll to the amazing stretch of Gold Coast beaches, Dolphin Ave Sanctuary offers a memorable and affordable holiday experience for holidaymakers who want great value for their money.

Dolphin Avenue Sanctuary offers a peaceful getaway for your enjoyment, whether it is for a romantic hideaway, beach getaway with a group of friends or a place where your family or a couple of families can enjoy quality time together. Our vision is to provide great value for those who work hard for their holidays and can't justify paying $150 upwards per night for a single hotel room. Why spend loads of money on a small, cramped unit on your dream vacation when you can enjoy an inexpensive, clean and comfortable holiday home that caters for all ages and families.

The duplex is centrally located but is also situated in a quiet and safe residential neighbourhood. It is a short walk to the beach and the trendy cafes, bars and restaurants of Nobby's Beach. It is close to all amenities including supermarkets, parks and retail precincts. It is a short drive to Burleigh Heads, Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise.

The property is set over two levels. On the first level you will find the open plan modern kitchen with large pantry, dining room and living area. The living area opens out on to a large timber deck with barbeque and outdoor dining setting. There is also a convenient powder room plus a separate laundry located on this level. You will also find a large rumpus-like room which contains 2 single bunks sleeping four people with a LCD television/DVD, PlayStation and couch. Kids in particular will find this an excellent place to retreat to

Upstairs there are three bedrooms. The first bedroom contains a double-sized bottom bunk bed with a single top bunk sleeping 3 people. The second bedroom contains a Queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom has a Queen-sized bed, a walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite featuring a double vanity, shower and toilet. The main bathroom is also located upstairs and here you will find a bathtub and shower. There is also a separate toilet.


The duplex is set up to be a comfortable home away from home. It is not a hotel so is not serviced daily. Upon your arrival you will find all beds made up with clean linen and there will be clean bath towels in the linen cupboard. Soap-on-tap and a supply of toilet paper rolls will be provided.



As a Family, we have thought about what we find essential when holidaying on a budget so we have tried to provide guests with the regular facilities they have at home. This means that our guests are able to cook/barbeque at home avoiding having to eat out every meal minimising holiday costs.

Washing machine, dryer, refrigerator/freezer, clothes line, dishwasher and dishwashing tablets, ironing board, iron, cooking utensils, toaster, kettle, cutlery, crockery, BBQ utensils are supplied.
