We came up to the Gold Coast for a week late in January 2012. It rained the whole week we were there but we enjoyed our stay thanks mostly to the great location and the fabulous service we received from the staff while we were there. The first night our TV died and we were offered another room so we could use the TV in that room and the TV in our apartment was replaced the next day. Thanks to the weather movies and the indoor spa and sauna was pretty much our enterainment for the week, but it was all very good. We would definitely stay there again.

I have been a regular visitor for many years now and have always enjoyed my stays there. More than anything, for me, its the feeling of space I enjoy compared to other apartments around Burleigh that can be quite pokey - especially the newer ones. Also the apartments I prefer to stay in (the B apts) have full 360 degree views of Burleigh beach and the living area, kitchen and two bedrooms all face the front. There's nothing like being woken up by the sun's rays on a beautiful morning - for a sleep-in just make sure you draw the curtains before you go to bed. The place is well managed by caretakers Shane and Madonna who are very friendly and helpful. I thoroughly recommend Southern Cross apartments.

We have been holidaying at the Southern Cross twice yearly for the last 10 years or so. We usually go with my aged parents and particularly like Unit 29, which has a double bed plus single in the second bedroom. My parents have the master bedroom with ensuite, we have the other room (we are used to a queensize bed so it's ideal) near a very large bathroom. The unit has a wonderful view, the building being on the Esplanade, is handy to the patrolled beach, is very well furnished and has a well-equipped kitchen. The units are spacious and always very clean. Shane and Madonna are excellent managers, very obliging and pleasant.

Room Tip: The units in the middle of the building are less exposed.

9 years ago we moved from Brisbane and rented a unit at Southern Cross Apartments at Burleigh Heads. Unfortunately due to work commitments we had to move back after six months, but every year since we have been coming back (sometimes twice a year!) Centrally located on the esplanade it is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars and cafe's as well as being accross the road from popular Burleigh Heads patrolled beach. After hours at the beach you can come back and relax by the pool. The apartments are very spacious and overlook the beautiful surf beach. Managed by Shane and Madonna, they always go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Christine

For years we have chosen Burleigh as our beach getaway. The beaches are fabulous, and the local shops are easy to walk to. The grounds and pool area are always spotless. We have stayed at many high rise apartments at Burleigh Heads but cannot beat Southern Cross Apartments. The units are always clean and all have fabulous views. Shane and Madonna (managers) are so welcoming and always try to accomodate requests of our favourite apartments. They are part of the reason we always return several times a year to Southern Cross.

We have been coming t o Burleigh for several years. For the past few we have stayed at Southern Cross. Each time we extend our stay. Everything is so close and easy. The apartment is fabulous. It is very tastefully decorated and always clean and well maintained.The management(Madonna and Shane) are such easy going and friendly people to deal with and respond so promptly always. We come here as a family and do everything together. At the end of fantastic day we sit on the balcony watch the surf and everything go by as we enjoy happy hour and talk. It is the place where we come to truly relax. I can only wish that Perhaps one day I might eventually buy an apartment.
