First time staying at the Southern Cross, stayed on the 16th floor, room 60, the view from our balcony was amazing, took some fantastic photos of the sunrise, the apartment itself was spotless, but the bed was far too firm and not at all comfortable, will certainly be back in the near future. Thanks Shane and Madonna for a wonderful...

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...

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...

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...

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...
