HAVE A VERY MERRY YEAR-END FAMILY VACATION ON THE GOLD COAST!

Nov 22, 2021 | Local Attractions

Are you planning a year-end family vacation? When travelling, there are numerous factors to consider. Of course, you must first decide where you want to go. And once you’ve decided where you’re going, you’ll need to find a place to stay. While looking for a place to stay, you should also consider the activities you can do while on vacation.

Sure, some people prefer to stay in the accommodation and take advantage of all the onsite amenities. However, some people want to immerse themselves in the environment entirely. So why not give you both options?

Here on the Gold Coast, you get both and more.

Take a Trip to Burleigh Heads Gold Coast

Burleigh Heads, or simply Burleigh to locals, is on the beautiful Gold Coast of Queensland. First, let’s talk about the beach. Burleigh Beach is well-protected and ideal for swimming or surfing. The Burleigh foreshore, on the other hand, is home to towering fragrant pine trees, and there are plenty of spots to enjoy a picnic or barbecue in this parkland.

If you want to be near those, then book your family a Burleigh Heads accommodation beachfront.

Book Your Burleigh Heads Apartments

Swell Resort is a 4.5-star holiday apartment located in the beautiful and famous Burleigh Heads. The accommodation provides a variety of spacious and fully self-contained apartments equipped with all of the amenities required for a relaxing stay.

You can choose between a one-bedroom apartment and a two-bedroom apartment, both of which are available in standard and superior configurations.

Both types of one-bedroom apartments have modern décor, reverse cycle air conditioning, a full kitchen, laundry, a separate lounge area from the bedroom, an ensuite, Foxtel, a DVD player, and FREE unlimited WiFi internet. These apartments have a balcony or courtyard as well. The bedding configuration in the one-bedroom apartment is a king bed that can accommodate two guests. A rollaway bed can be added to accommodate an additional guest for $35.00 per night. But the difference between the two types is that those superior apartments are refurbished and feature a pool or ocean view.

Now let’s look at the two-bedroom apartment options. Both have a modern décor, reverse cycle air conditioning, a full kitchen, laundry facilities, a separate lounge area from the bedrooms, Foxtel, a DVD player, and FREE unlimited WiFi internet access. A balcony or courtyard is also available. Both have one king bed and two single beds, making them suitable for four people. Again, an extra person can be accommodated with a $35.00 per night rollaway bed. On the other hand, the superior two-bedroom apartments are mostly refurbished and have a pool or ocean view.

Swell Resort has a swimming pool, spa, fully equipped gym, and tennis court onsite, in addition to comfortable accommodations. So, if you want to unwind, you can use Swell Resort’s onsite amenities. When you’re ready to go, the resort is just a short walk from Burleigh Beach’s famous rolling surf. Burleigh Heads National Park, with its lush green rainforest, is also nearby.

If you want to go a little further, Surfers Paradise has a great shopping and dining scene. Alternatively, go to Warner Bros. Movie World as they are holding their annual Christmas celebration in December.
