“Best for bushwalking and surf.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

Thanks to Jeff (the friendly and helpful onsite manager) for making our family very welcome. The apartment was charming and very family friendly (with Foxtel and a large laundry). All that we needed was within easy walking distance. The views were spectacular and the ocean sounds a welcome relief from highway and airport noise.

We just had 5 nights in room 35 on top floor over looking the heads of burleigh and as far as you can see past surfers/sea world at the very north of the goldy!!Without a doubt the best location possible,ive stayed at many places in the gold coast,most are alot more modern when it comes to hotel facilities and looks(exterior)but for in room quality and views,cannot be beaten!!Rated kids facilities low because there is no pool,no need when the best lifeguard protected beach for swimmers and surfers is a 500m walk away!!Right across the road is the headland which has one of the best walk/run tracks ive been on with views second to none!!A 1km walk to james st n the middle of burleigh village has shops for all things,coffee,fresh made juices(big hit with the kids)fish monger etc!Will be back for a week every year for now on!!!Oh and byron bay and ,mt tamborine are both an hour away,both worth a visit!!!

Room Tip: Definately top floor worth the xtra few $$$ a night,better views and more modern interirs,room 35 ha...

Getting to our room on the top level of the property was a little disconcerting, but the apartment itself was good - recently refurbished. Fabulous location and views up the coast past Southport. The sound of the surf on the rocks does not disturb our sleep.

Close to really good restaurants (three in the same street) and cafe's in James St area.

Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 units between Christmas and New Year and it was our second stay.

We had a two bedroom unit with a huge balcony (only partly covered) and fantastic views.

The position and views are fantastic, but I have a few small gripes with the accommodation. On arrival the deck was very sandy and quite dirty. This is not really a huge deal, except there was no mat or anything from the deck to the unit, so inside quickly got dirty and sandy too.

The shower made an annoying whistling sound.

There were only three unmatching glasses for our use (in a two bedroom apartment!) which was quite annoying. There weren't heaps of other mugs and plates either. This seems ridiculous when these things are so cheap now.

Also many of the dishes in the cupboard were not clean and some of them had water in the bottom of them.

The things above are small things, but I would think with such a fantastic position they could easily be attended to.

Overall, I would certainly recommend HillHaven for a family holiday. But just don't expect things to be perfect.

We just spent 6 nights at here and it was amazing. Chose Unit 35, top floor, world class views, watched dolphins and whales playing in the ocean. Breathtaking views all the way up to the Gold Coast. Apartment was first class with ultra modern decor and everything you need. Foxtel, Meile appliances, comfy beds and great sofa. Jeff and Ruth are awesome hosts, friendly and great on local info. Easy walk to Burliegh shops and eats and just across the street from great swimming and surf beach.

If you want to sit on a balcony with the best view, sea breeze, and relaxing times, then book and go.

Room Tip: If you can get any of the top floor apartments, you won't regret.

Everything at Hillhaven is terrific, especially the location at Burleigh Heads - fantastic veiw to Surfers Paradise. Older place but clean and spacious.
Only drawback was the very narrow car parks - hard to get in and out.

We stayed eight days in Apartment 7. The apartment was comfortable and in a fantastic location -- you could lie in bed and see the sunrise. We often come down to Burleigh for a swim on a Sunday morning, so are very familiar with the area, and chose these apartments by looking at them from the outside and then checking them on the net.
The location is absolutely splendid. What was more important for me than seeing the sea, was hearing the waves crash on the rocks as I drifted off to sleep.
Our apartment was one of the more modest ones and from the website it is clearly not one of the most glamourous ones. This did not matter a whit to us - we were very comfortable.
The kitchen was excellent - with lots of useful bits and pieces when I wanted to cook a nice dinner for our friends who live locally.
We could park our car right next to our door - a big plus.
I have already booked to come back for a few days later in the year.
Management has changed recently at this complex - and they are excellent.

Room Tip: If there are more than two of you, go for the apartments higher up in the complex.
