“Couldn't have been happier with our choice of accommodation!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful 9 night stay at the Solnamara beachfront apartments. This was our first big holiday as a family of five (kids aged 7, 4& 11mths) and I spent a LOT of time researching accommodation not just in Burleigh but all over the Gold Coast.
Solnamara was a fantastic choice : the friendliest managers we have ever encountered, THE most amazing views out of the lounge, meals, kitchen and main bedroom windows, apartment spotlessly clean on arrival, and the 3 bedroom apartment we were in provided more than enough space for our stay. The value for money was outstanding.
We stayed on the 7th floor which meant spectacular views but also meant we were constantly alert with young kids and the balcony. If you are nervous with heights I'd recommend requesting a lower floor, which we may do next time.
Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the heated pool and the playground just over the road, and beach access couldn't have been easier. Free undercover parking was great too.
The McDonalds behind the building didn't bother us at all, and we found the 7/11 store handy for late night forgotten items. There is a Coles about a 10min walk away and Burleigh village is about a 15 min walk along the gorgeous Esplanade, however this easily turns into a 40min walk if you have kids like ours who want to try out the 3 playgrounds and numerous exercise equipment pieces along the way!
Burleigh heads was a fantastic location, the esplanade has a great vibe and the scenery was stunning. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else on the Gold Coast. Thanks Lyn and Kerry/Paul and Sandra (i think!) for a truly memorable holiday. We will be back!

Thanks for your great review.
As new managers we love living at this location, beach across the road and with a fantastic kids playground. The local cafe scene is as you say 15 minutes walk along the boardwalk, and can take alot longer if you choose to stop at other playgrounds and various gym equipment scattered along the entire beachfront, how wonderful, couldn't get a better workout with the scenery.
We do agree our apartments are all very spacious so you will never feel closed in, and they all have great ocean views. We do cater for families especially being fully self contained.
Thanks again and we welcome you back anytime for a relaxing stay.

After reading the already great reviews on this property, I decided to give it a go on a special birthday weekend with my partner. Our expectations were exceeded. We stayed on the 9th floor with stunning views of the beach (and the sound of the crashing waves which I love). There was underground parking included which was a nice bonus. The service at reception was warm and friendly at all times. The facilities in the apartment were fantastic, there was nothing more you could have needed. It was extremely modern and clean.

Location is directly across the road from the beach, but it takes about 15mins to walk to the heart of town with all the cafes and restaurants. The only downside would be the 24hr MacDonalds which our bedroom looked over and a bit of noise coming from there.

Would definately recommend and would return again in the future.

Spent 4 nights, shared the apartment with another couple.
Great location - across the road from the beach, off the main drag (quiet), great range of restaurants close by, if you want to self-cater its even walking distance to supermarkets.
Apartment was spacious, clean, fully equipped.
Beds were really comfy.
Parking off street in secure underground car park.
Managers were friendly and helpful.

We stayed at Solnamara in Burleigh heads for 3 nights on a birthday break from Melbourne. It was wonderful!
We considered staying in Main Beach or Broadbeach but I'm so glad we chose Burleigh Heads and particularly Solnamara. The apartment was beautifully decorated with a wonderful view across to the beach and had everything that we needed as two adults and our 16 month old daughter. Lynn provided a cot which was already set up in the room for our daughter when we arrived. We really enjoyed having the apartment as it meant that when our daughter had gone to bed at 7pm - we could still enjoy a few drinks on the balcony without waking her! Much better than a hotel room!
The location is perfect too! Right across the road from the beautiful beach and also a fantastic park which our daughter loved to play in every day! About a 15 minute walk to the centre of Burleigh but that was good for us, as when we went there we were happy we were staying a little bit away.
We ate at the North Burleigh Life Saving Club (about a 2 minute walk) and it was fantastic - great food and reasonable price.
We also took the bus into Surfers which took about 30 minutes and very easy as the bus stop is just outside the hotel on the main road (about a 30 second walk). We only stayed a few hours and then left to come back to Burleigh!
Overall, Lynn and Kerry were fantastic hosts and helped with everything we needed. Lynn even helped me organise a surprise birthday cake to be in our room for my husband for when we arrived!
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property for families especially, and others who want a chilled beach break. I am a travel agent and will certainly be recommending to my clients!

Thank you for this review and to come from a travel agent it makes me especially proud that you enjoyed your stay at Solnamara and are happy to recommend it to your clients and friends.

Often people would think a hotel room is adequate for a short stay but it is so much nicer to have a bit of space and the convenience of kitchen and laundry should you need it. You also get the bonus of the beautiful location that Burleigh Heads offers - we love living here ourselves!

Thanks again and we look forward to welcoming you back to Solnamara one day soon.
Kind regards

We've stayed in a number of apartments during the past month and Kerry and Lyn outshone everyone else in terms of their friendliness, efficiency, attention to detail and hospitality. On our arrival they helped us with an issue and repeatedly said, "We want our guests to be happy". They are more than just managers - as resident managers, they view the Solnamara as their home and seemed proud to be sharing their home with us, as their welcome guests. Even during their "down" time, they said hello to our daughter from their private courtyard as she walked past. The whole complex:- pool area, gardens, lifts, carpark, garbage chutes, glass windows and railings were spotlessly clean. We trust that Lyn and Kerry are being paid very generously by their employer(s), because they may be quickly snapped by somewhere else!
Solnamara is conveniently located across the road from patrolled beaches, children's playgrounds and a fitness circuit. It has a 7/11 and fast food outlets behind it and it is in walking distance to a number of shops at Miami. Free wifi was not available.
The southern apartments on the higher floors have excellent views of the beach and ocean from your bed in the master bedroom, as well as in the kitchen, dining room and lounge room. The other two bedrooms have excellent western views to the mountains.
Unit 12 on the northern end (2nd floor - 2 bedrooms) has been recently refurbished with new bathrooms, new carpet, quality furnishings and Tasmanian Oak furniture. This is an excellent unit to stay in. The view of the ocean is partially obscured by the pool's privacy wall, trees and the neighbouring building.
Unit 29 on the southern end (7th floor - 3 bedrooms) features new carpet and updated kitchen and bathrooms. The decor has a Greek Islands feel. A number of locked cupboards throughout the unit suggest that its owners return regularly, thus it is very clean and well maintained. The downside of this cleanliness is that our daughter walked into the plate glass sliding door on the balcony, so we carefully placed blutack across the doors during our stay and cleaned it off when we left. The bedrooms and bathrooms were all double glazed so the only noise we heard was the crashing of the waves. The views were so incredible, that I spent nearly all of the first three days just enjoying them. The sunrises and moonrises were spectacular. There would be very few apartments on the Gold Coast that offer better views from Surfers Paradise to Coolangatta and from the bedrooms we could see across Burleigh and Robina to the mountains from the border to Tambourine Mountain. The master bedroom features ocean and beach views and the other two bedrooms overlook the mountains.

Room Tip: If ocean, beach and mountain views are important to you, give Lyn and Kerry (resident managers) a ca...

Thank you so much for this glowing and detailed review - we appreciate the time that you have put in to writing this. We really do care that our guests have a great holiday and we will do anything that is possible at the time to make this happen.

I'm please you enjoyed the location and could easily get around walking as well as driving because we do have many guests who choose not to hire a care and they would find it helpful to know there are shops and cafes in walking distance.

The main attraction is the beach and now I want to holiday myself here - because we are at ground level being the managers we don't get to see the beautiful sun and moon rises that you photographed but we know many guests enjoy this too!

We hope to see you and your family back to stay at Solnamara and thanks again about the comments about the cleanliness as this would a top priority for other people considering staying with us.

I am pleased you enjoyed your few days relaxing at Solnamara and thanks for mentioning the shops & restaurants near by, the spacious apartments and great ocean views. I think you stayed on level 2 (3rd floor from ground) so it is good for prospective guests to know that you don't have to be high up in the building to get good views!

When you make the trip to the Gold Coast again we would love to host you back at Solnamara!

Many thanks to Lynn and Kerry for a wonderful holiday at Solnamara Beachfront Apartments. Although in years gone by we had frequented Burleigh Heads and Solnamara, it's been four years since our last trip. We were excited to return and were not disappointed with our 9 night stay. We had room 25, on the sixth level, a three-bedroom apartment, like all the three bedroom apartments at Solnamara, they're very spacious. We had great views along the beachfront and having a fabulous playground directly across the road, was great for the kids. The pool is a great size, temperature and pristine, with great pool loungers surrounding it.
Really enjoyed the walkways, headland and fitness equipment along the waterfront - such a joy to get out into the sunshine and pound the pavement with the many locals and personal trainers who utilize this great area. Stunning beach, with fine, golden sands, great waves, and lifeguard patrolled area just 50 metres away. Water temps were 23 degrees while we were there (end April), and 26 - 28 degrees every day and nothing but sunshine!
Quick access to M1, an easy 30 mins drive to the theme parks - don't forget to visit Rainbow Bay - another great spot!
We look forward to returning next year ... but this time it will be for the entire school holiday break!

Thank you Jenny for taking the time to post a very informative review which I'm sure others will find helpful when they are researching for their holiday.

It was nice to welcome you all back to Solnamara after you had regularly before and I'm pleased the family rediscovered their love of the Burleigh Heads fabulous location - enough to be already thinking about your next trip!

You mentioned the spacious three bedroom apartment and the great ocean views they have - they are large enough to spread out and enjoy your stay and soak up the views.

You really timed your stay well with the beautiful weather and sea temps - I will try to book a repeat of the same weather next time you come!

Thanks again
