The SpaceEnjoy all that Coolangatta has to offer from this gorgeous two bedroom fully self-contained apartment. It has just been fully renovated with brand new everything, polished timber floors, fresh paint, all new bathroom tiling and fittings, blinds etc. The kitchen has been almost fully renovated (new benchtop, sink, splash back, fresh paint etc). The only thing that is not new is the kitchen cupboards and the laundry equipment.
The main bedroom is large and features a very sturdy queen bed. This room can also fit a port-a-cot (supplied). It also has wardrobe hanging space for clothes with shelving.
The second bedroom features bunk beds for two kids, or two more adults.
So we can sleep up to four adults, or a family of four. Plus we can accommodate five if you have a baby, but this is only in a port-a-cot. We cannot take five adults or a family of 5 unless the youngest is a baby.
(Please note that the QLD Government does not recommend sleeping in top bunk beds for children under the age of nine. Our bunk complies to the latest regulations and you can see our compliance checklist if you wish. If you book this accommodation and you don't adhere to the recommended guidelines you do so at your own risk).
Everything you need to enjoy your holiday including linen, towels, beach towels, games and other stuff. Kids toys can be included, just ask.
The kitchen features fridge, electric oven and cooktop, espresso coffee machine, microwave, toaster, pots, pans, utensils etc. Everything a gourmet chef could want for meal preparation!
The bathroom is full of all brand new fully renovated fittings, all new tiles, floor to ceiling. The WC is separate to the bathroom, so two people can kind of use the facilities at the same time. Guest AccessOutside your unit there is a large balcony, 2.5m x 6m where you will sit at the outdoor table and enjoy a couple of sundowners.
There is even another courtyard type space about 3m x 6m where young kids might play on skateboards or scooters or similar (not provided).
Please note the balcony has an older style of railing which is not fully child proof, so young toddler age children will need supervision in this area, or, if you are busy inside, say cooking, you can keep them inside with a lockable screen security door (or the solid door). Interaction with GuestsWe will leave you to enjoy your holiday - we don't live on the premises (we used to). We aim to be super-organised so that your check-in, check-out and your stay is seamless and everything you want it to be. You won't even need a key - we have a super-cool keyless entry via a pin number with your very own unique PIN number, kind of like Star Trek. We will message you with your PIN number about 48 hours prior to your arrival. The NeighborhoodThe location of this apartment, for the price is second to none. It is a just three blocks back from Coolangatta Beach, so its about a three minute walk to the beachfront and restaurants and cafes. Best of all it is elevated enough to get breezes and some limited ocean views from the balcony, without you having to walk up any steep hills!
This is really key in summer, to get a view, usually you have to walk up some really steep hills. Even many places uphill from us have no views. You don't want to be arriving home super sweaty every time you go out. Our place is elevated enough for breezes and some views, but up only a short, gentle incline - very rare indeed. (That's actually why we own this place!)
Although Kirra Beach is "over the hill" from here, for you it's not, as directly over the road from your apartment there is path. "The Cutting" is a footpath/cycleway following the former train line that used to run from here to Brisbane. Because trains can't go up steep hills, Kirra Hill has been cut through, leaving your own shady very gently inclined path through to Kirra Beach. Many locals don't even know about it!
In terms of safety, we are over-the-road from the Police Station. All the beaches, restaurants, cafes and shops of Coolangatta are accessible within 5 minutes walk.
There are so many "casual dining" type restaurants all within walking distance. Our "Welcome Pack" will show you our personal favourites, developed over many years, where you can easily eat out for $10 to $15 per head every night of the week.
If you prefer to self-cater, "The Strand" Shopping Centre in the heart of Coolangatta is a 5 minute walk and contains an Aldi and a brand new full-sized Woolworths Supermarket with a massive deli and fresh food section.
If you are like us, you will spend your days on foot around the beach areas, and you can pick yourself up some fresh supplies each day on your way home. Its close enough to walk with shopping bags for one day's supply.
If Woolies and Aldi isn't enough for you (!) you also have the option of the Tweed Mall. If you like the idea of strolling interstate for your shopping, Tweed Mall, about a 10 minute walk, has another Woolworths Supermarket, a Coles, and more than 60 other specialty stores.
The region is famous for its Surf Life Saving and RSL type clubs where you can you can get a big meal with a great view for a modest price. At least five of them are within easy walking distance. Getting AroundIn less than five minutes you can amble down the hill to Griffith Street where buses will connect you to all the other parts of the Gold Coast such as Surfers Paradise. From here you can also get buses to the Gold Coast airport (which is a five minute drive) and train connections to Brisbane. Other Things to NoteYou will be staying in one of four apartments on the property. The other one is identical and may also available to book on this site, its description is STROLL TO BEACH AND TOWN. UNIT 2. (if you want to search for it). That one may be available if this one is not and you can see more of our fabulous reviews there.
If you need the port-a-cot just check with us. We have one that we share between our two Airbnb apartments. It would be unlikely that guests from both guests would need it at the same time, but if this is critical, just check and we'll let you know.
If you have young kids this place is ideal (but please read the 'Guest Access' section above regarding the railing if you have toddlers). There is a port-a-cot and linen that you are welcome to use.
There is also a high chair if you need, it, just ask. Even a few toys can be provided if needed.
Excessive noise from other residents of the building is never a problem, but there may be the odd occasion when you will hear footsteps and similar dull sounds from us upstairs. We have never had a complaint from a guest, we just want you to know up front that it is likely that at some stage during your stay you will hear some minor sounds. Our former permanent tenant in this apartment said it was never a problem. The apartments upstairs are usually permanently tenanted and we screen our tenants way more thoroughly than most owners (and all agents!), so that we can do our best to offer you peace and quiet during your stay.
