Palatial Estate and private resort on the Gold Coast sleeping up to 26 guests!
About Karen Brieger
My husband Geoff and I have lived on the Gold Coast for over 20 years. Together we manage our 2 properties - Alawara Mansion at Tallai and Swell Family Residence at Burleigh Heads.
Karen Brieger purchased this Guest House in 2004
Why Karen Brieger chose Tallai
Alawara Mansion offers incredible value per person when considering we sleep 22 guests (and 26 if required). Unbeatable value and comfort for large family groups and reunions or small do-it-yourself weddings!
What makes this Guest House unique
There's something for everyone at Alawara Mansion and so much space and serenity inside and outside. Large suites, great living areas, themed sports bar, pool, tennis court, playground and incredible grounds. There's so much you can do on the Gold Coast, but some guests just want to hang out at the property for days on end - perfectly understandable.
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
Perfect size for our family celebrations, ample areas for varied activities for everyone to enjoy whether it was a spot of competitive tennis, basket ball or footy to a more sedate game of pool, reading or a board game or relaxing, and of course the frog and toad bar was a real crowd pleaser as any Aussie would agree. Our large family had an amazing time and was the perfect place to meet and spend precious time together celebrating an 80th birthday and 60th wedding anniversary. We look forward to our next big celebration and will definitely have this on our list of special places.
Thank you so much Kim and family for your lovely review. We look forward to having you back again one day. Congratulations all around. So happy it all went well.
Had a wonderful time here, the Frog and Toad Pub is terrific for family holidays. This would be amazing for a wedding, everything was perfect and we had a great family holiday.
Everything you could wish for
We always go away for the long weekend in May as a family. Alawara Mansion is the best place we have ever stayed in. Everything perfect, tennis court, pool, cubby house. Plenty of space for the children to play games and equipped with lots of bowls, platters for self catering. Great area for parking cars and an easy drive back to Brisbane for those playing school sports on the Saturday or Sunday. We will be coming back. Thank you Karen and Geoff
Thanks for your lovely review - we look forward to having you back!
Was all that expected and more
Have wanted to stay at Alawara Mansion for more than 10 years. Finally got the chance to and it was all that I expected and more. Our house Karen (and Geoff who we sadly didn't get to meet) were professional and very helpful through the whole process of booking and went through all aspects of staying at their wonderful property. The house is amazing! Nothing was left off the list. All you need to take is food, beverages and your clothing then - RELAX!! Which is exactly what we did - we never left the property!!!!
Everything is well appointed, plenty of towels, linen, room, parking, ....... the list goes on and on.
The house, as you would expect is immaculate - albeit the carpet is a little tired but so would you be catering to the pleasure of some many people.
Every bedroom (except for the bunk bedroom has an ensuite).
I can't thank Karen and Geoff enough for letting us have a moment in time of their beautiful, luxurious home and capping off what was the best birthday for me ever!!!
Beautiful property with plenty of space for our family. Great pool and activities, tennis and kids equipment to keep everyone occupied both adults and children. Owners were lovely and the house was clean and tidy . Great place for a family getaway good location for theme parks and for airport. We had a great time and I would definitely recommend this luxurious country mansion
Amazing home, amazing stay, amazing owners
This was my second stay and we will definitely return again. The property is perfect for a large gathering with all amenities that you need. It is in great condition, comfortable with beautiful gardens and surrounds, a private oasis.
Karen and Geoff are fabulous hosts who make you welcome and then let you enjoy the stay. No complaints on their level of customer service.
Can't speak highly enough of this stay.
My advice is to book early. The more people who get to know about Alawara, Mansion, the harder it will be to book!
Central to everything on the Gold Coast.
