Having traveled many places I was expecting just another ho hum establishment where you swipe the visa card, grab the keys and then you are on your own for the remainder of your stay. Just the opposite. I could tell from the minute I walked into the lobby that both managers were going to make this a pleasant place to... More

We have been coming to the Southern Cross apartments for the past 6 years during Canberra's winter and we love it. Shane and Madonna are great Managers, very friendly and always make sure we get the sunny side while we are there. We love the pool and spa after a run or walk in the mornings. Close to some lovely... More

Had a weekend stay at the Southern Cross. Perfect location, directly opposite the beach and a short walk to the Burleigh Heads shops. The managers were very professional and friendly. They have a great deal where you can stay all day on the day of your departure for an extra $50, this worked really well for us. The apartments are... More

We absolutely loved everything about the Southern Cross Apartments. The 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious, bright and sunny, really clean and catered for everything we needed. The balcony views were stunning, seeing the ocean during the day and the Gold Coast lights at night. The beach so easily accessible being directly across the street, along with walking paths. The...

We booked the Southern Cross for two weeks from New Zealand. The comments on Trip Advisor were encouraging, especially speaking of the management couple Madonna and her husband. We paid a deposit and were asked to settle the balance on arrival which we did. Before moving in to the apt i asked if we could inspect it. I then asked... More

My wife and I had an upper level apartment. The sea views and spaciousness of the apartment qualified our fantastic accommodation review title. (Saw whales and dolphins passing by) All necessary facilities close by. Beach right on doorstep. Burleigh Heads Reserve nearby for walking and running. We would stay again.

If you looking for a great location just south of the Surfers this place is well worth considering. I have stayed here for 3 years now with my family and we have always had a relaxing holiday thanks largely to a great apartment here at Southern Cross. Beach is 2 mins away and the onsite pool/spa is fantastic for young... More
