“Top class holiday apartments....we'll always go back!”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

We have been holidaying at the Southern Cross twice yearly for the last 10 years or so. We usually go with my aged parents and particularly like Unit 29, which has a double bed plus single in the second bedroom. My parents have the master bedroom with ensuite, we have the other room (we are used to a queensize bed so it's ideal) near a very large bathroom. The unit has a wonderful view, the building being on the Esplanade, is handy to the patrolled beach, is very well furnished and has a well-equipped kitchen. The units are spacious and always very clean. Shane and Madonna are excellent managers, very obliging and pleasant.

Room Tip: The units in the middle of the building are less exposed.

9 years ago we moved from Brisbane and rented a unit at Southern Cross Apartments at Burleigh Heads. Unfortunately due to work commitments we had to move back after six months, but every year since we have been coming back (sometimes twice a year!) Centrally located on the esplanade it is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, bars and cafe's as well as being accross the road from popular Burleigh Heads patrolled beach. After hours at the beach you can come back and relax by the pool. The apartments are very spacious and overlook the beautiful surf beach. Managed by Shane and Madonna, they always go out of their way to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Christine

For years we have chosen Burleigh as our beach getaway. The beaches are fabulous, and the local shops are easy to walk to. The grounds and pool area are always spotless. We have stayed at many high rise apartments at Burleigh Heads but cannot beat Southern Cross Apartments. The units are always clean and all have fabulous views. Shane and Madonna (managers) are so welcoming and always try to accomodate requests of our favourite apartments. They are part of the reason we always return several times a year to Southern Cross.

We have been coming t o Burleigh for several years. For the past few we have stayed at Southern Cross. Each time we extend our stay. Everything is so close and easy. The apartment is fabulous. It is very tastefully decorated and always clean and well maintained.The management(Madonna and Shane) are such easy going and friendly people to deal with and respond so promptly always. We come here as a family and do everything together. At the end of fantastic day we sit on the balcony watch the surf and everything go by as we enjoy happy hour and talk. It is the place where we come to truly relax. I can only wish that Perhaps one day I might eventually buy an apartment.

We have stayed in many apartments from the Daintree to Coolangatta over the years on our annual sojourns to Australia (to escape the NZ winters) so are well aware of prices and 'just what's out there'. If we are near Burleigh Heads we always stay at The Southern Cross Apartments - great value for money - great location and fabulous views of the ocean and dolphins playing, from the beach view apartments - the managers are friendly and helpful which all contributes to an enjoyable holiday - we have stayed at the Southern Cross several times now after the apartments were recommended to us by Australian friends and we have now recommended them to NZ friends who are also staying there in the near future. We'll be back!

This is my fourth attempt to get through with a report on the Southern Cross but I just want to echo the words of "Patrick B" and "Brian W". We have stayed at the Southern Cross about ten times and are booked in to stay for 6 weeks next February. That should be recommendation enough, but we would add, to what the other two people mentioned have said, that the facilities are excellent. There is a fine, warm swimming pool, a "work-out" room with apparatus, a sauna and a jacuzzi. We can't wait to get back and meet Shane and Madonna again. Roll on February 12th!

Room Tip: East side rooms have good views (over the trees) to the beach and Surfers' Paradise, west side...
