BRING YOUR FISHING BOAT or JET-SKI
This luxury three-bedroom, fully ducted air-conditioned, waterfront ground floor apartment is the ideal place for a family holiday or romantic getaway. Small pets are welcome to remain outside at all times.
This bottom floor apartment covers the whole ground floor - and feels as large as a whole house. It has the added advantage of fully fenced, grassed outdoor areas, exclusive only to the bottom floor, so kids and dogs are kept safely away from the water if required – peace of mind for parents.
The unit boasts its own pontoon – with direct bridge free access to the beautiful Broadwater just around the corner. Feel free to bring your jet ski, or boat max 7mtrs and have full access to it for the duration of your stay – all included in the price. There is power and fresh water available at the pontoon. Perfect for fishermen.
If you are towing your boat / jet ski - there is a boat ramp only a few hundred meters away – you will need to leave your trailer parked on the road outside the building, or at the boat ramp carpark. The basement carpark of this unit includes 2 car spaces, so you could leave a smaller trailer in one of the carpark spots - provided it is no longer than an average car. If you have a larger boat you would like to take on holidays – Runaway Bay Marina or Bay View Harbour Marina have berths available for rent, and both are only one block away from your accommodation.
There are also plenty of boat hire / bbq boat hire places around the Gold Coast.
It is imperative you consider the neighbours and Maritime Safety Laws and adhere to the strict 6 knots speed limit while inside the canal, until you reach the open Broadwater….. which will take all of 30 seconds
The Broadwater estuary is our favourite place to fish on the coast. Providing easy access to protected waterways, and the chance to catch a trophy-sized fish or just a feed of crabs. The extensive size of this water way gives a sense of having the place to yourself, even during peak holiday periods you can still find your own secluded hideaway. As an angler, you will coexist with dolphins, dugongs, and turtles and stealthy anglers frequently have close encounters with these exotic creatures. The number of different fish species available make it impossible to ever get bored and with South Stradbroke Island being so accessible you can easily pull up and stretch your legs or have lunch.
For something different – take your boat for a cruise into the canals of Hope Island and Sanctuary Cove… see how the Rich and Famous Live – It’s a real eye opener

EXTRA CLEANING FEES
An extra cleaning fee will apply where guests have not left the property in the same condition as they found it. In general, a large percentage of guests will ensure that they do this but there have been a small number of guests who have left a mess behind and as a result, we have incurred additional costs on top of our standard cleaning fee. This will be deducted from the Security Deposit after you leave. Our cleaners will always provide photos as evidence of any extra cleaning required.
Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns prior to making your booking.
