“You won't want to leave”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

My wife and I have just spent a week at Solnamara - it was fantastic. From the moment we arrived and were greeted by Lyn and made to feel welcome, we had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. We stayed in a two-bedroom apartment on the 6th floor, which was very well-appointed and had two bathrooms. The lounge-dining room was spacious and airy, and opened up onto the balcony which looked directly over the beach at Burleigh. The lounge chairs were very comfortable, and lighting throughout the unit was very good. Unlike many holiday units where one has to wash dishes after each meal, the kitchen in our unit was very well-equipped with ample stocks of cutlery, crockery, glasses and cooking utensils.

The beds were very comfortable and all rooms had ceiling fans and split system air-conditioners.

It is clear that Lyn and Kerry take a lot of pride in managing Solnamara. The gardens and lawn were well-maintained, and the pool was pristine.

In terms of location, Solnamara is hard to beat. It is located on the Esplanade at Burleigh Heads between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. The patrolled beach at Burleigh North is less than 10 minutes walk away, and the Burleigh Heads village is about a 15-20 minute walk away. There is also a Coles supermarket about 10 minutes walk away.

Once you have arrived at Solnamara, it's very hard to leave. We'll be back!

Wow what a wonderful review - thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience at Solnamara and my apologies for taking so long to reply!

I can't take credit for the grounds and pool but it will make Kerry's day when I give him your feedback. We also have a wonderful resident at Solnamara who spends many hours tending to the gardens and we don't know what we would do without her!

We very much look forward to your next visit and know your review will be helpful to others researching where to stay for their Burleigh Heads holiday.

Just got back home after 8 nights at Solnamara. We stayed on the 7th floor in a 2 bedroom apartment and could not have been happier. The apartment was everything that we expected after reading all the great reviews. It was beautifully presented, spotless and contained everything that we needed. The pool was great, the beach was just across the road and the view from the apartment was great. Have recommended Solnamara to my sister and they have already booked. We will be back when time permits.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review about your stay on Trip Advisor - it gives us a lot of satisfaction to hear that the apartment and your stay lived up to the expectations you had prior to arriving. We also love hearing that the apartment was spotlessly clean as that is something we really try hard to achieve.

Thank you so much for recommending your sister also stay with us and we look forward to seeing you back again at Solnamara too!

Just got back from 5 nights at Solnamara beach apartments at burleigh heads and already talking about our next trip there.
We chose this complex after reading the many good reviews on trip advisor and can only add to the rave reviews. Sure there are many motels that offer more facilities and are a little bit more classy,, but for the price and the quality of service we can not recomend any other.
Your hosts Lyn & Kerry are friendly and helpful and make you welcome from the very moment you walk into the reception, the rooms are clean comfortable and the location is great.
If it's value for money you're after , then look no further.
you can hire bikes off Lyn and Kerry for $5.00 a day...

Room Tip: we stayed on the 4 floor great views from balcony 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, room number 18

We are pleased you enjoyed your 5 day break at Solnamara - next time you definitely should come for longer!

You mentioned value for money which I think is very true - we are a 3.5* apartment complex like many in Burleigh Heads and you can enjoy a 5* location!

Pleased you had fun on our bikes but mostly we recommend the local bike hire places for comfortable well maintained bikes with a good back up service!

We look forward to welcoming you back

We get a lot of satisfaction when guests tell us they have had an enjoyable stay at Solnamara. Our large 3 bedroom apartments are particularly good for families and I'm pleased to hear it had everything you could need for your stay.

What a wonderful bonus that you got to see whales on their return trip south with their young from your apartment - I miss that from my ground floor office but have had many happy smiles this year from guests telling me they also have just seen whales playing in the ocean!

Please give my regards to all the family and we look forward to seeing you back at Solnamara.

Thanks for your review - we try very hard to present the apartments well and most importantly that they are clean.

We are very fortunate for being across from one of the best beaches in Australia and having shops and cafes conveniently located nearby is another bonus that Burleigh Heads provides

We are so pleased you enjoyed your weekend stay at Solnamara and we look forward to seeing you again sometime!

Away from the hustle and bustle of Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, this offered our family the ideal setting for our holiday. Our family (2xA + 2xC) stayed in two separate 2BR apartments as we extended our stay (9th floor & 6th floor). Both apartments were immaculate with modern furnishings and two bathrooms (Premier category). The pool, promenade and proximity to everything was brilliant. A short walk to the village with a great selection of cafes and restaurants kept my wife and I happy whilst stopping at the playgrounds on the promenade satisfied the children!
I researched Tripadvisor prior to booking and found all the reviews were 'spot on' regarding the apartments, location and the managers. It goes without saying, we would recommend Solnamara to friends and family!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review - we did enjoy hosting your family stay and I'm please you got to sample a couple of our premier apartments while you were with us.

The location is so easy for families and couples - the playgrounds along the Esplanade are a credit to the council and yes the village shops, cafes and restaurants are just a short walk away.

Thank you also for recommending us to your family and friends - this is our most valuable marketing and we do appreciate it

We are also pleased you enjoyed the superb location that Burleigh Heads offers
